Thanks my kids would be disappointed if they couldn't use the slide and I knew I could get the correct info here!

So all bands have to be individually activated or is it the account that is activated? Just curious because my DH and son will arrive later. Will their bands work, or do they need to go by the front desk?

Thank you! We have 7 DAYS LEFT! We are so excited. We have Garden view but not Royal Rooms. Right now I have requested bldg 90 Oak Manor, ground floor closest to Food but I think I might change it because I might be too specific. Not sure

Not sure yet I think I might mention the room motif cause we definitely dont want the granny flowery bedspread. Just give me Mickey heads & I'm good.

If you have a regular garden view booked and not a Royal Room then you cannot request Oak Manor Building #90. That entire building and Parterre Place are specifically Royal Rooms which are their own paid category. If you have paid for a regular garden view room and want to be in the mansions, then you'd have to request Magnolia Terrace or Acadian House.

Thank you!
If you have a car there I would just drive. It's only five minutes or less away by car.

You got some pixie dust when you checked in! Congratulations!!

We are booked for a garden view royal room for our upcoming stay. I'm excited!! We always stay in then AB section so this will be like staying someplace new! I want a room close to the food court and I requested a lower level because I was unsure if they had elevators over there. I know they don't in the AB section.

Hey all...first post but I've been all over this site.

This will be our second trip within 12 months. Last November we stayed at POFQ the week after thanksgiving. We were planning the same week but with the Free dinning plan we bumped it to October. Now the kids will be dressing up and truck or treating at the park.

Originally booked at POP but for an extra $250 we got POR with a royal garden view and dinning so we couldn't beat it, plus we're going a month earlier than planned.

We take 1 vacation a year and I can't wait to go, seems to be taking forever but only 51 days to go.

Myself...DW, DS8 and DD6 are all set to go. Ordered our tickets for mickey Halloween party and have the MB ordered.

What time are you arriving though, as the downside of having rooms 'blocked out' in advance is that unless they are both empty the night before, it's hard to guarantee in advance when they will be ready for to you occupy. It can sometimes become a choice between getting the best from whatever happens to be available when you arrive (i.e. "Ready Rooms") versus waiting for previously blocked out rooms to become available.

flight lands at 10:45am..so "late" for when we usually arrive ( 8am and have always had rooms ready but have never made a request). I think my only request will be not having to switch rooms...

We are going to be planning an extended family trip to POR next August 2014 (15th to 22). The online system is not showing ANY rooms available. They aren't renovating POR next summer are they??? .

scooters

We're planning a trip in January with my parents. For the first time, I think my Dad will be renting a scooter with an off-site company. Our requests in the past have always been... close to main building, connecting rooms, ground floor or near elevator. Last time we were in a ground floor, connecting rooms in the inner courtyard of Magnolia Terrace. I thought it was a pretty good location, but that walk was still pretty brutal for my dad. I made a lot of runs to refill his mug, and get things from the food court for him.

This time, we're thinking my parents might do better with an accessible room (not wheelchair... just the ones with the higher toilet and grab bars). Is that considered a bookable category... or is it just a request like any other random request? Also, we are considering booking preferred location. We didn't last time, out of fear that we would get put on the 2nd floor. As much as distance has been a problem for my dad.... steps are out of the question. If we were to book a preferred room this time, would the fact that he has a scooter guarantee a first floor room? Thanks for any help!

We check in next sat the 14, should I fax my requests Monday? We r booked preferred but would like to b closer to food court building 14 would b the ideal place as husband has knee issues. Also what r the crowds like during that week? We stayed last week in September last year and crowds were great till end of week when food and wine started. Another question what r the odds our rooms (2) will b ready by 1ish that Saturday. Thanks!!!!!
