Magnolia #85 Are Garden Views Available?

I finally broke down and changed our dates so we could switch to POR . I am SOOOOO thrilled! I booked a garden view, but I am wanting to know bldg #85 has any. If so, I am planning on requesting one. Also, does it make that much difference which floor as far as noise? I had to book our trip 10 days later than our original date to make the resort switch and just can't wait!!!!

No, I wouldn't worry. Last time I got mine 10 days before I left. I blame customs

Yes, the Spring discount was 25% and the Summer one is only 20%. I just saw people posting their savings and wanted to make sure that was the savings off the RACK rate and not compared to the Spring rate. It's not clear what the ticket part of the discount is (maybe it's a combined 25% off what your package price would be?) so I just wanted to be sure I didn't miss a better deal Thanks!!

Campfire supplies?

Do they supply marshmallows? Is there a fee? I'm assuming that if you want s'mores then you must bring your own chocolate and graham crackers or do they supply everything and again.....fee? My son is gluten free so we'll need to bring our own graham crackers from home as I am guessing they do not have gluten free graham crackers there.

BLDG 85 had plenty of Garden View Rooms! Check out Andre's website (there is a link in the beginning of the thread) he has a wonderful map that tells you exactly where each kind of room is. As far as the floor issue goes, last year we stayed in a second floor room in CBR the noise was less not significantly less but less.

There is an issue (IMHO) with the way international visitors see the Disney World site at present. Not only is all of the My Disney Experience material actively blocked for Canadian/UK/etc visitors, but even some standard pages (such as the one above) get messed up by this redirect.

I am trying to do a Walmart order atm and I am not quite sure which address to send it to? Do I use the street address or the postal address from the Port Orleans website? Walmart is not recognising either of them so I want to make sure I have it right! Thanks

Yes they do, and there is no fee. You can of course bring your own food* to roast too.

* within reason, bringing a whole pig to roast might be frowned upon...

We will be staying at POR for the first time in 57 days! Booked a Royal Guest Room for DD since my DSs get the enjoyment of SWW. Anyone have suggestions on the best room location? I have checked in and requested a corner room. Chances of getting it? Should I send a fax a few days before as well?

Thanks in advance!

9 days away and my fax is all ready to go. Did not realize that I could request a standard room in either AB or the Mansions. Any suggestion would help? Last time we stayed in a preferred room and loved it.

Thanks
