That's what I figured, better to be a day early than 2 days late and on the bottom of the fax pile obsession.....

It never hurts to mention something that you'd like if possible, but do remember that there are no 'Standard View' rooms in building 14, so they would technically be giving you an upgrade. However if there is any capacity available they have been known to do that, so it can't hurt to just mention that building 14 would be your ideal if any rooms do happen to become available there.

Don't send your fax more than 5 days out though, as they generally won't assign category changes much further out than that (I assume in case any more bookings might still come in).

I would definitely mention the extra one-day booking when you send your fax. The system is meant to flag this automatically (and they also run regular reports looking for matching names in consecutive dates) but just in case it gets missed it's worth mentioning anyway. They will usually try their best to avoid you having to change rooms if at all possible, but sometimes it can't be avoided depending on capacity.

You will technically need to check out and back in again, but if you can stay in the same room that's just a formality to get your new package items added and update your room access.

Hey, don't assume that you're normal just because you've found a whole load of other people with the same obsession...

We will be staying at POR from 5/7-5/10. We have 2 garden view rooms reserved with my parents. Which building should I try to request that is closest to the food court and best bus stop? Is there anyway I may can get a room upgrade? Can you email me the template? Also, which building will construction be on at that time? Thanks!

4. Also, which building will construction be on at that time? Thanks!
1. I would just ask to be close to the food court rather than a specific building.

2. You can ask if there's availability at check-in, but it should be with the expectation of paying for it.

3. It's in the first post of this thread.

4. The only building I'm aware of that has construction going on is Oak Manor, which is one of the Royal room buildings, so you won't have to worry about being put in it.

We leave in 4 days for WDW and staying at POR. We are booked for a Royal Guest Room with a garden view. I really wanted to be in Oak Manor but with the roof construction, would you chose the other bldg even though it is the farthest building? What would you do?

I am checking into POR on Wednesday, May 14. I am thinking that Friday, May 9 will be the day I send my fax. Venom, would I be able to PM you my fax to read and suggest changes? I already have it typed up.
