My hair is more coarse than fine, and I liked the shampoo and conditioner jut fine. But my mom has very fine hair that acts up if she uses anything other than what it's used to (she can't even use conditioner at all), so she brought her own.

Next week at this time, we should be all checked in for our first night! We're staying in a Royal Guest Room with a standard view. We used a travel agent and she requested a room near transportation. Should I fax a request in as well? I'd also like to be close-ish to a pool. Also, we'll have strollers with us. Is it more convenient to have a ground floor room? Lastly, we requested a pack and play for my son who has a peanut allergy. Can I request that it be cleaned due to allergies or is Mousekeeping good about stuff like that?
Thanks!

I am pretty sure they can also do a special room cleaning for peanut allergies if you call ahead of time and have it added to your reservation. I had called and asked about some special allergy cleaning for dustmite and fragrance allergies and the CM specifically asked me if I was also allergic to peanuts as they have a special cleaning for that too.

I am no expert by any means, but I did read on here that you can request a "deep clean" because of allergies. Explain about your son, and I bet they will accommodate you.

I also read that room requests should be faxed in about 48 hrs ahead of arrival (there is a number here on Disboards for the room request fax line--someone more savvy--help please?!) with the requests prioritized as to importance.

I think a ground floor would help with strollers. We stayed at CBR several years ago with our 2 year old grandson, and between the walking from the bus stop and then carrying the grandson and stroller upstairs when everyone is pretty beat it was kinda

But the view was nice!

There are pros and cons to everything, but this time we are staying at POR and requesting a room closer to things and a first floor. If we get it, great, if we don't, we'll manage and there will be something else to compensate for it, like the view being better from the second floor!

Everything you need to know about faxing requests is in the first post in this thread.

I am not Andre, but I can confirm for certain that coins are still used at POR. Only FQ has been converted.

We are at CSR after a week at POR royal room and I miss it a lot. Beds are so much more comfy at POR. The grounds and overall feel at por is so much better than csr, IMHO.

We are booked at CSR for free dining in DEC and I think we are going to change to a RO rate just so we can get a port Orleans room. Honestly at this point I would rather even stay at pop than CSR. But have definitely decided POR is our new favorite.
