Hi everyone! My how time flies. Nine days before we arrive at POR. We are super excited! It is our first family trip to WDW.

I have a question. Where can I find guidance on shipping things (water) to POR?

We will be staying in a RGR-Garden Room and will be traveling with our four year old. Also, I am at a lost when it comes to room requests. Can anyone offer guidance on room requests? I know I would prefer to be on the top floor to avoid overhead noise. We are light sleepers. I have read about corner rooms to maximize daytime lighting, but not sure if this is available. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. In other words, HELP.

TIA for your feedback.

I was wondering if roll away beds are available or if they would even fit? I will be there in December by myself. However, one night my brother and his wife who live a little over 3 hours away will be driving up to join me for MVMCP. If they decide to bring their 16 y/o daughter it may be a little awkward. I have no problem sharing a bed with my daughter but I am not comfortable with sharing with my neice that I see once a year. I am sure they would have no problem getting their own room if necessary.

9 Days for us too !!!

We are requesting the mansions, but we have paid for a King Bed, so it COULD be either. Maybe we will see you in the mansions though !

Thanks for the link.

Do you have a link for the request letter template? I clicked the link listed at the beginning of this thread, but it directs me to something different.

Idk about rollaways but they could bring an air mattress with them. I've heard about others that have made those fit.

We ordered a case of water and a few snacks from Walmart. com on our last trip and had it shipped directly to the resort. (Address in first post in this thread) It worked out well, and saved space in our car. Plus, $.97 shipped. I ordered about two weeks out, and it was there in plenty of time. We spoke with bell services when we reached our room and it was eventually delivered to us.

What link did you click on? In the first post in this thread there's a section labeled "Can I request a particular location or room type?" In the last bullet point in this section is the link to the template. I checked it; it goes right to the post that has the template.

I clicked the "here" link and it directs me to the last post of this thread. It could be the app.

Ok, so I was looking at the updated maps. I have booked the standard RR. I know almost all of them face the parking lot. I did see some that might have a better view. Do you know what the view might be like for instance in the third floor in Oak Manor? What about on the second and first floor but in the middle of the building? I think Oak Manor might give me the best standard view. I can always request to at least not be looking at the parking lot and that will let me see in between buildings.
Basically what would be the best standard room?

How far ahead is too far ahead to have things shipped down to POR? We'll be there starting June 1 and when DH's beloved Dr. Pepper is back in stock at Staples.com I'm tempted to go ahead and order, but I don't want it to get shoved so far into a waiting area that it gets lost or they think it's not supposed to be there... Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
