Two questions:
Are movies available on-demand in the room?
Do the TV's have a HDMI input one can pipe their own content to?

i am sure they had RCA jacks on the front of the t.v., but would like to know the HDMI question too.
(will that charge my flip video camera?)

Port orleans still has their mini fridges right?

and, someone please confirm Bob is still playing at riverside?

You may want to call back and see if they can put in for guaranteed connecting - when we first booked we didn't have that, but when we called back with our ME details, that CM changed our reservation to say guaranteed connecting (you can see the words on the reservation link they sent us). We're 2 adults 4 kids checking in 10/8 but not till about 10pm. Hope that helps!!

11:30pm. But the buses run later than that if you miss it.

There are no on-demand movie facilities on the TVs in the room, but there is an HDMI port you can use. Netflix on your laptop I assume?

About 40% of rooms have fridges at the moment due to a defect that was found property-wide. They are replacing the others, but it will take another month or so to complete all the rooms. See the FAQ in the first post for details.

Yes, "Ye Haa" Bob Jackson still plays at the River Roost lounge, Weds-Sat. And his hair still looks fine.

If you are worried, just go through the online checkin process again and adjust your arrival time. You can re-do it as many times as you like.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I'm new to this and my eyes are starting to hurt from reading so many of these! What a wonderful way to discuss WDW! My daughter & I will be staying at Riverside next month (in 33 days!) in a royal room. I understand that limits the buildings we can be in, but I'm wondering which one would be ideal. I've heard that Oak & Magnolia would be great, but I don't know much about it. We will have a car there but plan to take a bus to the resorts. I have a fused spine and some nerve damage so I tend to have a lot of trouble with my hip & thigh with too much walking. So I'd like to be near a bus depot, but we'd also like to be close to the water hole & pool. Any suggestions??

My daughter & I will be staying at Riverside and on the morning of her birthday we have breakfast at Cinderella's castle at 8:30. Will the bus be running at 8AM to Magic Kingdom?

Yes, even earlier than that, actually.

Royal rooms are in Oak and Parterre.

Have you checked out the maps of the resort linked to in the first post on this thread? From my understanding of the maps and what I noticed during our quick first stay, apart from the bus stop outside the lobby, the bus stops are all on the *other* side of the buildings than the pool and lobby/restaurant areas. So unless you are put right in the middle, that's a hard one to do, to be close to *both*. That's my understanding, at least.

I did this on our last trip and worked fine. It was hot enough for me. I didn't taste any coffee either.

Awesome; that helps a lot. Not bringing the laptop because I'm making sure I can't be suckered into working. I'll be using a MHL adapter to run off my phone. I'd like the option of doing Netflix or a rip from our library just in case.
