I'd just like to say....

May is never gonna get here!!!

It is October 26th, and we here in our little part of Southern Ontario woke up to FREAKING SNOW ALL OVER this morning! what the frack?

I'm all whining and stuff sitting here reading all these lovely stories about POR, and want to be there NOW, not in May!

Sigh....

Oak Manor is shaped like an H. Only the cross piece of the H has third floor rooms. 9222 is on the second floor, but isn't in the cross piece, so it doesn't have a room above it.

Hi TDDisney

No worries... Thanks much for responding and sharing details about your room... Really helps us plan accordingly... I'm thinking about moving from a river view royal room to either garden view or standard view because garden and standard views, seem to provide more of what we're looking for...

Lol... Totally understand about stalking the boards... I personally can't get enough of reading the boards... I'm on here until the wee hours of the morning... motto is "I'm planning our Disney vacation... Sleep can wait"

Have a magical day

Hi siskaren

Thanks much for responding

Was wondering why that area was to the side on the map

Makes perfect sense now

Thanks again

Explain that when you made the booking there were only Royal Rooms available and no King Beds, and you were wondering if any availability had come up in the meantime. Don't fax more than 5 days out though, as they don't usually do category-change room allocations further out than that.

Thanks, Andre. There was availability (and still is) of kind beds but not under that particular code. Even once free dining opened up, they never really cropped up for all the days of our stay. I think they may have set aside 2 king-bed rooms and most of the RR.

I'll give it a try once the trip gets closer. I don't even want the money difference returned (shh, don't tell the accountant DH). If all else fails, I get the room I booked. Maybe I can talk the DH into him wearing a tiara (he actually mock-threatened it when I booked but I told him that a tiara just wasn't complete without a tutu)...

See FAQ in first post for latest update, currently about 40% of POR rooms have working fridges.

No snow here yet, but I feel the same way; hearing all about POR just makes me want to be there now and not wait my 98 days. (but who's counting?)

Hello

We are at Riverside right now standard view RR
Got all our requests top floor Parterre Place
Not a very far walk to the foodcourt
We are facing the parking lot but can see our vehicle which is great
Beautiful weather and we got a working fridge and we didn't even request one
