Hi I am just about to send my room request.I have been reading this site for a couple of weeks.My husband needs a scooter ,he can walk but has some mobility issues (diabetic nearopathy) .What would be the best location ,garden view near food court and a bus stop? We are going just the two of us to celebrate my birthday (59 agggh) .I know kind of lame for two oldies without kids to go. I went a couple of years ago stayed at Poly and it was great to just get on the monorail.This time I wanted to try POR it seems so nice. Thanks for any suggestions. Nan

I tend to suggest asking for WHAT you want rather than a specific building. i.e. explain the mobility issues, and that you'd like a room fairly close to the food court and main bus stop. Ideally you should have booked Preferred Location rather than Garden View, but I'm sure they'll still be able to find you something suitable.

If they are sending via post, use the PO Box address. If they are sending by courier, use the resort's street address. If in doubt, use the street address anyway. For more details of how to label the package, see www.portorleans.org/services.php#Mail.

The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago! All of a sudden I realized that I hadn't received any notifications of posts in a few days. When I went on the thread I was no longer subscribed. I had PAGES of posts to catch up on!

Oh, and CONGRATS to Ye Haa Bob! I've never stayed at POR so I'm not familiar with him personally, but WHAT an honor. I can't imagine how exciting that would be!

I can't believe it....we are almost ready to go. Seems like forever (August) since we booked this trip. I hope I have everything packed. POR here we come! Now please tell this stupid snowstorm to buzz off....I don't need a crazy 2 hour drive to the airport.

CSR or POR Royal Room? Price is the same.
I was all set to book CSR, but then I heard about the Royal rooms at POR!

My quandary is this: i have been to WDW many times, but this is the first time for my friends and their DD. And i am in charge of all the planning and I want it to be perfect for them!
i thought the Royal rooms have a bit more "Disney" than CSR without being over the top Princess-ey for my DS9 and my friend's husband. (We were originally looking at AoA, but my son saw the Little Mermaid building and that idea got VETOED!)

Is there anything you could say that would sway me either way?
CSR was not good for me last July. The tour groups were horrible. I'm an in-shape mom...but getting older . The kids in the groups were harassing me when I walked alone. Luckily I'm a spitfire so I would not be intimidated by them but it was extremely uncomfortable to be harassed by kids only a few years older than my son! I know that's not a fault of CSR but it definitely added to the less than stellar time I had there. There is no food court and the quick service food is so limited. The lines are ridiculously long in the tiny area for quick service. And the 'buffet' or whatever you want to call it is limited and not very good. I only received average service from the staff. The pool slide was awesome but the pool area was really messy. And our preferred rooms were so far from the main pool, it was horrible. The beautiful fountains near our room were drained for all but one day (and no work was being done on them!). CSR is one of my least favorite resorts at Disney. I'd prefer offsite and most other on site resorts, and I've stayed at many of them.

Although its been awhile since I stayed at POR, it is so much more serene with a better food court, additional transportation, and a more laid back atmosphere (without the conventions...and I'm a convention attendee so I know how much better it is without that!)

As the highest honour one can receive within Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, The Walt Disney Legacy Award recognises those exceptional individuals who consistently excel in the categories of: Dream, Create, Inspire. The award is a global program which recognises the outstanding achievements of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Cast, Crew and Imagineers, and each recipient will have first been nominated by their leaders, direct reports and/or co-workers.

Congratulations Bob, this award is richly deserved for the amount of effort and dedication you put into entertaining your guests. Walt would have been proud of you, as you embody the values and traditions that he wanted for the parks (and now resorts) which carry his name. Wear your new blue badge with pride.

See Bob's Facebook page if you'd like to congratulate him yourself.

Andre
Woo hoo! Congrats Bob!!

What time would you recommend getting there to get seats?

Tomorrow is the day I plan on booking our November stay at POR.

Is there anything I should put on our original reservation? We want the Mansions and I'm think we'd like Magnolia building. We're doing standard view and I was thinking 2nd floor (feel free to convince me of a different location.) Is there anything else we should not on the reservation at the time of booking?
