ON the fax request in the header right under ROOM ASSIGNMENT TEAM do you put the date you are sending it or the date of your stay?

Here's what I have so far

Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort
Attn: Room Assignment Team
Saturday October , 2013
Resort Confirmation # XXXXXXXXXXXXX


Hello POR Cast Members,
My mom and I will be checking into POR next Saturday October 26th, 2013. This is our first stay at POR and we chose it especially for a ‘girl’s birthday trip’, her 70th and my 47th. We are very excited to try your resort; the Royal Rooms ‘enchanted’ my mom.

We have paid for a Garden View Royal Room. I would like to be on a first floor near the bridge over to the main building and the South Depot. My mom has an unstable knee cap and cannot handle stairs very well, however if we do need to do an upper floor I would just ask that we be near the elevator so that we don’t have to double back on walking every time we leave or return to the room as it can be fatiguing for her on some days.

If possible I would also like to request a fridge to keep gel packs cool to help with inflammation, bags of ice are harder on her skin so non frozen cooling works better on her knees. I also have one medication that will need to be kept cool.

We understand that these are requests and appreciate any help you can give us. I am always happy to be at WDW and not getting these requests will not ruin our trip, but getting them will make it a little more magical.

Thank you very much,


Bookgirl

I faxed my request last Friday and I got a confirmation from my fax machine that it worked. I assume that we will find out if our requests are granted upon arrival. Or do they email people before they arrive?

Two more days (boy, I feel like I've been writing that everywhere today)!!

You find out at arrival make sure to inquire about you had some requests and wanted to see if you got them at check in. They will re-look in case they can find you a better spot or not.

I've been learning so much from this thread and portorleans.com!

I'm surprising my princess-mad DD with a birthday trip and have reserved a garden-view royal room. There are several room requests that I would like to make, to accommodate both of our preferences. They are:

Upper floor
Near bridge to main building
River-facing side of building (really don't want to be on the backside of the building)
View of fountain/courtyard (river view would also be fine, but that would be an upgrade)

If I'm requesting a fountain/courtyard view, do I also need to request the river-facing side of the building? I didn't want to add an unnecessary request if all of the fountain-view rooms are already on that side. Also, are these reasonable requests, or am I narrowing down my room choices too much? In looking at the maps, it looks like I would need a room in Oak Manor to meet all the requests, but I didn't know if it would be a good idea to request that as well.

Thanks for your help!

Those requests look great to me. Yeah i would say if possible the side facing fountain near the river.

I didn't see this is yet...I'm still reading but I didn't see it in the first page. How long before the trip should you fax the request? I don't want it to be soon before the trip to get lost, but I don't want it to be too close to possibly not get it because it was sent out too late

Hey all, quick question. We are staying at POR with a pool view. We want the 3rd floor, would it be too much to also ask to be nearest a good bus stop? Which room/building should I request or should I leave it? Thanks!

Well one thing I would want to know first is your room type, Standard, Garden, water, or River views?
