Have a great trip, Andre. Stop by if you get a chance, but I may be at my other job as I split my time these days.

Hope you have a great time! We'll be arriving Thursday morning for 10 days, can't wait!! Thanks again to you, and to Venom, for all the great planning info you provide.

Have an amazing time, Andre, and take lots of pictures!! (Not like you haven't already )


Venom: I just noticed that you are originally from Newport News. My husband has family there!



Corner Room Question:
We are currently booked in a royal room, garden view. I'm trying to determine whether or not it's worth it to add "corner room" to our request. I've requested to be on the river side of the building, so assuming that's honored...

In Oak Manor it looks like the garden rooms that would be a corner would be the ones ending in 66, 63, 47, 50, 35, 31, 30, 83, 410? It seems like these would all have windows facing walls of other parts of the building except for maybe 410? In Parterre it's similar. I guess what I'm really wondering is, are there garden corner rooms that actually have 2 windows that don't look straight at a wall/door/roof to another room? I hope I'm explaining this right!

Yeah we have family also up by Fort Eustis area of NN. Yeah some do have views of the building and that would be the gamble when requesting that But majority of the garden rooms in the courtyard area have far better views than the corner rooms in GV category.

The Royal Rooms are located in 1/2 of Mansion buildings and they are not far from the food court or the bus stop. You can send in a fax 3-5 days before your trip and hope to receive a room close to either bus stop/food court. Also you may want to include a request for first floor.

Check out portorleans.org for an idea of the distance from the mansion buildings to the main building. It isn't as far as Alligator Bayour rooms.

We just came back from a trip February 2013 and had a garden view room. However, we were in the parks and at other resorts until dark and only returned to our room for sleeping purposes and the more scenic location was not worth it to us. In addition, it may be better to get a room closer to a bus stop than scenery if you are traversing late at late in Alligator Bayou.

Need advice on garden view room in 27 days

Hi ,just signed up for this thread .Tried to read other threads for answer to my question,but couldn't find best answer.We are two adults in our late 50's.I actually will turn 59 while there. We are leaving in 27 days ,I actually booked last week on a whim.I know but there was a snowstorm and I have the week off for a Florida trip. My husband needs a scooter to walk far distances(diabetic with nearopathy in his feet).We did visit in 2010 and stayed at Polynesion,, this time I wanted to spend a little less.I chose the POR because we wanted to enjoy the resort more. We bought the 4 day tickets and dining plan. I chose the garden view room . My question is which garden view room nearest the food court and accessible for the scooter (Ireserved from outside company,so he could use it when neccessary at resort) in the room. We will use busses and also some taxi's .Will the scooter break down to go in taxi's? Thank you so much for any help you can give .

Actually, you didn't. At the top of every page of every thread is a link labeled "Thread Tools." Click on it and it will bring up a drop down menu where one of the options is "Subscribe to this Thread." Moot point now, but now you know for future reference.

Anyone know? I think my question got buried quickly once Andre got on! Hope you arrived safely, and have a great trip!

Thanks I won't "waste" a request on a corner room then. I, honestly, don't really care that much where our room is. Thinking about it just gives me something to "do" for the next 111 days

How to do extra requests?

We are staying at the POFQ in May for our 26th wedding anniversary. Our son is currently in the CP and booked the room for us with his discount. He was able to book us a King bed room which is automatically a garden view or water view I believe. There was no place to make additional requests or mention that we are celebrating our anniversary. Does anyone know how we do that?

I have the confirmation # and I have booked dining reservations already and the system knows we have the room booked. I would LOVE a corner room since we will be in the room a lot with me studying and dh working a bit. We will only be going to a park one day and the rest of the time relaxing, studying and enjoying the resort.

Any help would be appreciated! We are so excited to be getting away and excited to see our son at the same time

I have a "river view" booked for Mar 2-9. I am traveling with my DS10 and DS16. I would like to be close to transportation and food (like everyone else!). It doesn't really matter to me which section we are in. Could you tell me which buildings would be the best to request? I looked at the map, but I wasn't sure which buildings would be river view but not preferred, since that wasn't available when I booked.

Thanks!
Kari
