I'd like AB, but with her Autism, (she is "blessed" with 7 diagnosis), first floor is difficult just in case there is a party upstair and thumping on her head. So we need top floor. And AB doesn't have elevators. I, personnally would prefer Oak or Magnolia but it's far from the bus and we still get people upset when we have to board a full bus at the last station and they have to move for the wheelchair. (I know and have asked few commenting people to exchange their waiting time for the wheelchair, but we still get those comments from time to time.) So, I will keep reading in case all those questions and concerns are answered, but if you have suggestions, they will be more than appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your community,

And please realise that English is my second language, so please forgive the spelling mistakes,

Poussière de fée!
Bless your family! I am pretty sure the two you named have elevators, Disney is usually very accomodating for special needs and if you fax them your situation, even call in to the reservation line saying just what you said here, it would help...then back it up with a fax.

It is hard, really horrifying, to imagine your family receiving any negative fallout on a bus or other instance...Believe me, there are people like me that if we see that happening we defend and inform!

Hope you all have a joyous time, you will love the cruise!

I've heard the same, FP+ are now available beyond that original 28th Sept cut-off date and can be booked into mid-October now. I heard that Magic Kingdom on 30th Sept was a problem, but the tech teams are aware of that and are working to fix it.

Andre
HMM, is that just for checkins in Sept? We check in October 8, but can't see anything.

Do we have any idea if the fridge situation will be fully resolved by October 27th? It's when we arrive and I'd really prefer to have one (like many others). But, we usually buy things to snack on that need to be refrigerated...like cupcakes

One more...or two things...

Our group will be at two different resorts (both slated for FP+) POR & POP...can we link our res and choose the same FP+ even though it's separate resorts? And if the others don't show up for the time...because they like to take their time getting up and around etc...can my 5 use at least ours still? In other words, am I better off not including them?

And, if the dates come available to book before we are PIF (not really sure when it happens), can we book or do we need to be PIF? Will they even offer before we are PIF?

Thanks for any and all help!!

No, we don't. The best I can offer currently is that the expectation is that it will be fully resolved by "early November", but whether that date may move a bit is anyone's guess.

We just got back last night. Stayed in room 9051, standard view royal room. It was a fantastic location in my opinion. We were close to the quiet pool and the East depot. It also wasn't far from the south depot. The only downside was there was no fridge. We did get a credit and kept our perishables in the Luggage Room.

What was the credit? I think I've read that some folks have received $15/night, but that you have to request it. Was that your experience?

Another couple of panoramas:

Oak Manor fountain: http://www.portorleans.org/images/pa...83-pano360.swf

POR Lobby, complete after refurb: http://www.portorleans.org/images/pa...51-pano360.swf

I've completed all of the variants, plus HQ versions, of 11 panoramas now, and I'll link them all up tomorrow (just add "_HQ", or use the .mov extension, with the above filenames in the meantime).
