Click on My reservations and then "view details" then Under Accommodations click on "check in Online" you can link your credit card etc. However from what I read here "room requests" is different and looks like it really didn't get you any options. You can take a loon anyways
Yes you can do tat but it doesn't give you any room options like it does for us. I really don't understand why there can't just be one site for everyone. It's not like prices are given in Chen currency or anything.

I need some mail sent to me while at POR. Can I receive mail there? How should it be addressed? We're checking in Thursday and were leaving tomorrow to Florida. We're so excited.

I assume so, but postal mail (as opposed to courier deliveries) goes to a central PO Box so not sure how that works in terms of priority mail?

Long time lurker, first time poster. We are heading down to POR the September [19-27]. IT's our first time at WDW, the wife and I grew up in Orange County, CA and have been to Disneyland over 100x. Looking forward to our first trip to the world! Im just a little obsessed with Disney and listen to all the podcasts.

We booked a Garden view room, was wondering is anyone had any recommendation for room requests. We would like something ground floor, in a mansion building, and close to pool.

Ive been to portorleans.org and just cant decide!

I would just say that. It's much better to make your requests general rather than trying to request a specific room number.

Me too. Online checkin for the airline opens in 50 minutes! (I doubt I'll be able to get our boarding cards today though due to US travel rules - I get them for internal US flights, but not for the transatlantic flights)

For those who have arrived to find no refrigerator, or it unplugged...

Were you given any kind of notice prior to your arrival that you wouldn't have a refrigerator available in your room?
