Thank you
I will look into that for my next trip hoping to go when it is all decorated for Christmas

Aw, Yay! I'm so glad to know there are other caring people out there like us! We don't really let it get to us too much and actually prefer to stand on the bus, but when it's happened SO many times and there have been some really rude incidents it creates that negative connotation when someone brings it up, you know?
I take the train to work and this is pretty much a daily occurance for me. So that's probably why we don't use the buses at Disney and we always have a rental car.

This would be an easy decision for me: POR preferred view.

I like POR due to its beautiful grounds and serene atmoshpere, which IMHO is not there at at POFQ. And with a preferred view, you are close to the main pool, Riverside Mill food court, and the building with the hotel front desk.

I have stayed at many Disney resorts, from value to moderate to deluxe to villas, and POR is my favorite resort for the reasons cited above.

I wouldn't recommend it because if the room you want isn't available they're not going to know why you wanted it and therefore aren't going to know what a suitable substitute would be. (And actually, Andre just recently added the floor plans.)

Though you can do both, request your general requests and then add specific rooms with "If it would be at all possible, we would especially love room --- --- or --- "

I wasn't going to ask for a specific room. It doesn't really matter to me. I will just request a building.

Question

Hi all - I have a random question about an upcoming trip. I've booked the 'Magic your Way' program which includes free disney quest admission, free mini golf, that kinda stuff. I was wondering if anyone knows when we get those passes/discounts? Is it when we check in at POR?

thanks!

It took 28 minutes and 25 gift cards, but my package is paid off AND we applied the summer discount. Woohoo! 107 days out! I hate that the website is so janky I couldn't make payments on it. I just put a poor phone rep through adding in all those giftcards. She sure was cheerful about it though!

That will come about 2-3 weeks before your vacation date. It's what we all happily refer to as "Mickey Mail". You'll get vouchers for quest, golf, etc as well as some luggage tags.

I received mine in the mail 30 days before check in, but have seen others get mail between 12-40 days out. You will get luggage tags and a coupon book.

Also, not sure how many of you there are but for mini golf and Disney Quest you only get two tickets....we are a family of five, so not much of a "bonus"

Any one have any tips when it comes to the bus stops at POR? My first time at POR is coming up fast. I know there are 3 stops. I'm traveling with my Mom who's handicapped and my 2 littlest both under 3. I'd like to be first on the bus, because we'll need seats.
