what room should I request?

Hello, I am going with 8 others and getting two rooms. I am interested in something close to buses to get to parks and not to far from the pools. We also hope to have adjoining rooms. The kids are 11 to 14 so no pack n plays or anything. Should we ask for bottom floor and Where? We all have never been to POR. I have been to POFQ and it was perfect. Got corner room there for 4 people on bottom floor near front.
Thanks
Michelle

Can you do online checkin if you haven't made final payment? Since you can do online checkin at 60 days and have till 45 days to make final payment I am confused.

Yes you can buy beer, but I don't think you can get quantity packs.

Someone was asking a while back about Royal Rooms on corners? Here's what they do with the décor items to make space for the extra window (this is room 9239 by the way):




The wall-mirror is removed, and the pennants get moved onto the wall next to the far bed:




The rest of the artwork usually on that wall is moved to between the beds:

How quiet are "quiet pools"

We will be at POR in June and we are thinking of asking for a room facing a quiet pool so that our kids can have a short walk to a pool. But we have been at hotels where rooms facing the pool have had to deal with loud groups of people who stayed around the pool until late at night. Our kids are light sleepers and this is a concern.

Has anyone experienced loud groups staying late around one of the quiet pools? Am I correct that the quiet pools do not have a closing time?

Well they make the big pool really inviting to the more exciting crowds with the water slide and hot tub so it draws them usually away from the quiet pools. But sometimes it can get moderately noisy, but the rooms are really insulated though.
