I just faxed in my request today for Aug. 20th (Hope it went through!) We requested ground floor near the hot tub because my husband loves the hot tub and he will be turning the big 5-0 while we are there!

Would 15 days before arrival be too much time to send a fax? We arrive at POFQ on 11/09 but we leave home on 10/29 and I'll have no access to a computer to send my request (I was planning on using http://www.faxfree.com/).

Thanks, I need to see if the website works on a tablet then.

BTW here's my letter, do you think it's alright?

Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort
Attn: Room Assignment Team

Resort Confirmation #XXXXX


Hello, and good day to you and your fellow Cast Members.

On November 9th, my Family and I will be visiting Walt Disney World at your Port Orleans French Quarter resort. We are all looking forward to this trip from November 09-22 with much excitement, our check in day is also my mom's birthday! We have stayed at POFQ before and it has become my favorite resort, it’s beautiful and so perfect for our needs! We would be most grateful if you could possibly accommodate a room request for Building 4 ground floor, maybe either Rooms 4105 to 4108 but specially room 4105. We really liked room 4105; we stayed there last trip and it was perfect, as it was very accessible to my 72yo mom who has a bad knee and needs a little help getting around. Due to her age I wish to save the major portion of her energy enjoying the parks

We have a paid Garden View Room as part of our reservation and we have some simple requests, we’d love if the room was near the bus stop and food court. So it would be very magical to receive a little pixie dust if at all possible. It would be the a very magical experience and really help with our visit to WDW.

We understand that these are requests but if you can help us out to the best of your abilities we would be ever so grateful. We will be arriving at your resort very soon, and would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide in making our wonderful vacation more enjoyable and magical.

Sincerely,

Thanks so much for your input. I'm off to see if I can access the website from an iPhone or find a computer that I can use during the first part of my trip.

Worst case. You print it off and send it from another fax machine, somewhere, aka fedex/kinkos, ups store, etc.
