THANK YOU ANDRE AND VENOMHATCH!! You don't know what it means to get both of your approval...lol. Also thank you for running such great threads and being a wealth of information. Choosing a resort is such a scary thing but you both make it very easy. My DS5 loves looking at Andre's website to find all the "super fun" things to do and see. Please feel free to use my letter any way you want.
This time in 11 days we will be finishing a luau at Polynesian and heading to POR for our first night of sleep. I can truly say I have no worries about staying there. Between you both and all the great people who post on the boards, I know I'm going to love it!

We checked in on Thursday. We sent our fax six days out and didn't get any of our requests. Don't know if they didn't get it or didn't want to give us any of our requests. We got a refrigerator delivered about an hour after checking in and calling to request it. We also did not get the building (Oak Manor) that our travel agent had requested. We are still happy to be here!

Riverside Request Draft - Review?

Venomhatch and Andre -

Suggestions, critiques, ideas are welcome. Thank you. Is using a fun font for any of this a bad idea - i put the words prince and princess in sparkly font in my letter. let me know.... I am a bit of a dork

Hi there Cast Members!

From October 11-18th my family of four and my mother-in-law and father-in-law will be having a blast together at Walt Disney World and at Port Orleans Riverside resort. The World is one of our favorite places and we – especially the prince and princess – are looking forward to staying at Riverside for the first time.

Speaking of the prince and princess – they have asked me to see if we could stay in a Mansion building on the second floor. Why? Well, so that they may “walk elegantly up and down the pretty staircases everyday” of course. They have loved the grand central staircases ever since our Sassagoula River walks past the Mansion buildings while staying at your sister resort.

But first and foremost, Mom and Dad would like to request a connecting room with Gram and Papa’s room as they are a huge help with said prince and princess. And they are pretty fun too! We have booked two garden view rooms.

We sincerely appreciate your assistance in helping us with these requests and understand that they cannot be guaranteed. Thank you for your time!


Excitedly,
Us (our name and my inlaws)

Requests:
1. Connecting Rooms (both #'s and names)
2. Mansion Building
3. 2nd Floor – so that the prince and princess may walk elegantly up and down the grand staircases 
4. One refrigerator between the two rooms would be great if at all possible.

Looks good to me. Id give you the best room I could if I saw that come across my desk. Lol. But make sure to put the important info at the top of the fax as well that was on my template.

Hello! I am in the process of writing my letter that I plan to fax a few days before our October 18-28th trip to Disney and Port Orleans Riverside. We have 2 garden view rooms booked, and we are traveling with an 8,6, and 2 year old. Grammy and Pappy are in the 2nd room. Can I request rooms in the Magnolia Bend section or will I need rooms in the AB section since we would 5 in a room? We stayed in Acadian House last time, but there were only four in our family then. We liked the location, but didn't know where we can request for our situation. Thanks in advance for all of your help!

Yes, you can request Magnolia Bend as one of the children is under three years old and so doesn't count towards room occupancy limits.

Or you could just add all the kids onto Grammy and Pappy's room and get some sneaky peace and quiet.

LOL! I agree with Andre! If I could convince "Grammy and "Pappy" to go, I would certainly try this! : )

We leave in 26 days and already did online check-in. Our friends leave in 28 days. We are all celebrating wedding anniversaries, us 10 years and our friends 30. So my question is that we would all love to stay in alligator bayou, so should we just send one fax with both our reservation numbers or separate faxes with both our reservation numbers?
Thanks.

I would do both together like that. It would certainly be clearer than sending two faxes then the Room Manager trying to track down their fax and requests also.

Thanks for the fax template. We are arriving Saturday, and my DH is faxing our info tomorrow...need fridge bc DH is diabetic and has meds that need to be refrigerated, also asked for a top floor, corner room bc we're light sleepers. I saw your info of where to fax. My question is...is there a certain "department" he should indicate on the fax cover sheet, i.e. is there a name of the department that handles room requests? Thanks!

Yeah no problem. Make sure to note the Medical needs for the fridge and they will make sure you get one. Medical reasons take priority. I just mention attention room assignment team or room assignment manager. It will get through to the right CMs.
