We've never stayed at Riverside before but are considering it for our trip next fall.

We are a family of 4, but I have one young DS who will not take well to sharing a bed with anyone. If we request a room in AB will we get it? I'd really love to make use of the murphy bed.

Sorry if this question was already asked, I've just been skimming the thread and haven't seen it.

Thanks!

You can look on the first page at room categories; the only way to make sure you get AB is to book preferred. All four buildings are in AB.

Go over to DTD and use one of your credits over there. Honestly, I would prefer paying OOP at EOE or use a CS credit, than eat at Boatwright's.
Where on DTD do you recommend?

We're planning on staying at POR next year. We stayed at POFQ last year and loved the atmosphere. The evening walks were wonderful. My daughter really wants to stay in the Mansions section (not the Royal Room) - guess she's too old for that. Anyway, I know room requests are just that, requests. Is there a particular room category (other the Royal Room) that I can book which would give me a better chance of staying the the Mansion section?

You can request mansions and not one of the particular buildings. You are not a party of 5, so you have even a better chance.

If you look at Andre's map, there are a great deal of garden view rooms in the mansions.

You can also reiterate at check-in, you do not mind waiting for a room in the mansions.

Just filled out my fax request for Alligator Bayou, second floor (we have river view booked). Sending it tomorrow. I had DD try on her summer clothes and pick her outfits - finally starting to pack. Woo Hoo!!!!!

Bummer my hubby was hoping to do the same thing. I don't see the fun in doing the path 8 times fun at all.

Well, technically, you only have to do it 4.7 times to get an 8 mile run...

Sausage and batter, two words that sound great together. The only other thing you could add to the list would be bacon!

Our plane lands at 4:30pm this Saturday, and we have a dinner ADR at Raglan Road at 7:30. Is that enough time? We are using ME, and then it will be either boat or bus to DTD. I would prefer boat for the ambiance, but I worry it will take more time than the buses. Also, the weather report shows thunderstorms, so is it possible the boats won't be running?

Not sure about the boats...I am assuming they stop running with lightning. I will be there Wednesday-Saturday and am praying the thunderstorms stay away!!
