I'm going back to Disney World next January and was looking into staying at Port Orleans French Quarter or Riverside. However there are no standard rooms available when I go to book online. Is there a reason? Would there be some available if I called? Thanks!

It might depend on your dates (e.g. Marathon weekend?) or if you are trying to find a specific offer - try a few days either side of where you are looking. And you'll only know if you try!

Aha! I finally have something to contribute here! When I called to apply the S/P/D discount, they said the standard room was not available for my dates (PHM week). I upgraded to a garden view, but still saved money!

I got some pixie dust on my room. I got upgraded from GV to Preferred in bldg 18! Awesome location just clues enough to the main bldg and south bus depot. The room us an accessible room, I didn't ask for one but it us nice. I get a bigger bathroom & the wardrobe instead of closet. And I got the new bedding which makes me happy. However I do think they will be even nicer if and when they add a runner at the foot.

Somebody asked earlier about a blanket. There is a med weight one between the sheets.

Dear Venom, hopefully, you received my Request Letter by PM, but just in case you didn't, I copy it here. I reapeat (sorry if you saw it before) that as you read, you will understand the importance of having our request letter made as good as possible:

« Bonjour » et « Bonne journée » to you and your fellow Cast Members,

Hopefully, you’re having a wonderful day today! I’d first like you to know that I’m writing you on the behalf of my daughter who lives with numerous special needs, including Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Learning Disabilities, so she cannot be writing this letter to you. Now, because of her very strong will, she became verbal and can walk a bit. We are going back to WDW from Northern Ontario even though the first time was quite expensive for us, because you and your fellow Cast Members made it so wonderful for her the first time around! So to make sure I won’t forget, 1000 thanks to all of you that keep making our trips magical!

On November 1st, my daughter and I will be visiting WDW at your Port Orleans Riverside Resort. As you know, we have been looking forward for this trip from November 1st to November 9th with lots of excitement. We would be most grateful if you could possibly accommodate a room request for a very Princessy Magnolia Bend Building. We have paid Garden View Room as part of our reservation. The reason we have some requests are that my daughter’s coach is a wheelchair most of the time (even more after being in the Parks….), and that she is very sensitive to noise because of her Autism. So if at all possible, we would like very, very much being as close as possible to a Bus Depot and reside on the top floor, so, again if available, be located in a building with elevators. It would be more than magical to receive a little pixie dust if at all possible for you. It would be the most magical experience for my little one to receive such a magical and Princessy gift. If by any chance, a fridge would happen to be in the room, it would make our life that much easier since she cannot be left alone for us (me) to use the fridge in the Main Building.

Of course, we completely understand that these are requests but if you can help us out to the best of your abilities we would be ever so grateful. We will be arriving very soon after planning for so long (25 months!), and would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide in making our special vacation even more enjoyable and magical.

Sincerely et « au plaisir »,

Area Requested: Magnolia Bend, as close as possible to a Bus Depot (Wheelchair),
Paid for Garden View,
Must be on top floor with elevator, and a fridge (Autism).

Thank you both very much. As I do not want to tie this thread up and take it off topic thank you very much for your thoughts. If you do feel to share sympathies then you may PM me and I will respond. But I do not want to hijack the thread.

Thx
