Couple of Questions...

Hi! This is not my first POR visit but we are bringing friends who are first timers and I want everything to be PERFECT for them! Plus we're celebrating a couple of big birthdays (that are a little painful! haha)

1. If we booked Standard Rooms, can we request things like River View if we fax in requests? I've never faxed in requests before

2. I booked the 2 rooms (1 for mom & i and the other for friend and her son) but the reservations are in my name and my friends name. I linked the reservations together and I was the one who paid the deposit to hold both rooms. If I fax in requests, should I just note both reservations in the one fax and not the confirmation#'s on the form??


THANKS!!!

Well welcome back...

Typically you can request it but that you most likely will not get unless they decide to give you a little pixie dust. The reason is they are two way different price brackets river view is the most expensive where standard is the least. You can fax in your requests and see if any magic shows up. But I would not hope too much on that far of an upgrade.

Well I would put all the names in on the request so they know all parties names involved. Make sure at the top of the request fax you state your name is: "?" and you are one of the occupants in the rooms and are making the requests on the behalf of all parties.

Ok originally I was thinking of just requesting a "non parking lot view" on my fax form. I think I'll just stick with that.

And I'll definitely list us all on the request also.

Thanks for your help!! 60 days!!

I can see them sprinkling a little dust on requesting a non-parking lot view. Not sure what you will see, but hey your at Disney World!

Hope you enjoy your upcoming visit!

Yeah those are my keys. I have to go once a month to get a new one because the paint wears off of him. My fiance has Wonder Woman and lil one got R2D2.

Anyhow that in the pic is someones luggage tag that was sitting next to us in the main hall area next to check in and gift shop. I asked if I could snap a pic and promised I would wipe the info off of theirs.

But I think talking about CBR is a little off topic from the POR thread ... still interesting stuff.

46 more days til POR !!!!!
Off Topic? It relates because those rooms are adopting the fold out bed used at POR.

With all the posts on this thread that are WAY off topic why did you decide to single mine out? I'm sure you can find other posts that aren't nearly as on topic as another Disney resort using the same room design as POR.

Ohh you most likely came across my posts. Well I have heard the situation has been remedied. But I am confident you have chosen an exceptional resort to stay at for your first mod stay. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Talking

My husband and I so excited that we are going to stay at a Disney Resort for the first time. I want to have his birthday acknowledged with a little pixie dust when we check is, as a surprise of course.
Would I fax that in? Or just call WDW and tell reservations?

Also, if we are booked with a garden view room in Riverside, do you have a suggestion for a great building or place of room? We plan on using the boat to go to Downtown Disney the first night we get there..but after that we are using our rental car to go to all of the parks and other resorts.

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!

We pick this resort, due to having 4 bus stops.. This way, I'm close to a bus stop no matter where are room is..

1. I'm really worried about the buses.. How bad are they really? Is it worth walking to the stop in front of the main lobby?
Trying to make a MK ADR at 8:05am.. How early should we be at the bus stop?


2. needing a room on the ground floor request.. (I'm unable to do stairs)

I don't want to have any problems at check in..
However if we are given a room that is on the 2nd floor with no elevator, i will psychically be unable to get to the room..... What do I do?

Thank you for any help

Call WDW... I told them DD was celebrating her bday.. They were able to make a note to the ressie..
Nice simple and easy! The CM said she would mostly likely get a bday button on check in!!
