They do; they do not take the KTTW card.

They do? Thanks for the update, I thought it was only the POFQ laundry that had gone cashless, I was under the impression that the Riverside ones were still coin-operated. You've been there more recently than me though.

I had to use cash the second week of June.
ETA: I used the laundry room in between Parterre and Oak Manor.

Riverside still has the coins. FQ is a test at this moment, so nothing is happening at RS for now.

That is funny, because I gave my debit card to my traveling companion to do laundry during our stay - teen boys, I never had to do this. She is also a server and has a lot of jingle, as they say. She most likely used coins and I assumed she used my debit card.

I must hate when someone gives bad info, especially if it is me!!!

If the free dining rumors come true, we may have to do the room only reservation for 2 days and the free dining package for 5 if we are able to get it at POR. Does anyone have experience with this? Is there a good chance that we won't have to change rooms? I was thinking I would send a fax and have this as my only request-stay in the same room.

We have done this 3 times in order to get free dining and have only had to change rooms once. The best bet is to link the 2 reservations and then send a fax that you would like to stay in the same room. Then also mention it upon check in to see if your request was met. If it wasn't, you can ask to see if there's a way to make it happen.

6am to midnight according to this page:

However, when you arrive you should ask because these things could change at any time.

Just found out today that DD broke 3 bones in her foot.

She is in a cast and not allowed to put any weight on it. Will be this way for approximately 6 weeks. I leave for Disney in approximately 7 weeks. Her orthopedic Dr, said the trip would be fine but would have to rent a wheelchair since that would be too much walking to soon.

I have booked a preferred room. I was thinking of calling and explaining the situation and requesting a ground floor room. Should I wait until 2 weeks out or call now and what do you think the chances of the request being granted.

Thanks in advance
