Or just use the links in the FAQ post at the beginning of the thread. In the "What types of room are available" section:

Just my advice to help...
Thank you both for the help! I will be faxing in that request form for sure

I love the fact that countdowns are being posted in hours and minutes at the moment. Makes my 446,400* minutes seem a bit of a wait though...

* approx.

Only about 159,840 for me!!!
Counting in minutes makes the number move much more quickly.

Just returned home early this am. ME was very fast for us. Room was ready when we checked in at noon, and bags arrived within 20 mins...I was really surprised at how fast. BUT, when we returned from MK that night, we had somebody else's luggage in our room!....three large suitcases. For a sec, I thought I was in someone else's room...lol. Big woops for Disney!

My kids, Mom and myself will be at POR the last week of April. My kids and I have stayed here before but first time for my mother. Mom has bad knees and can't do a lot of walking so I will most likely rent an ECV for her. A few questions: what is the best area/room to request for her? Do the boats to Downtown Disney accommodate ECVs or just wheelchairs? Any other useful tips for her?
Thanks!

When and how are you going to tell them?

I know how you feel. We still have 66 days to go. I've been keeping this secret since Marcy 2012. I've almost slipped a few times.

The boats can accommodate ECVs, yes. As for location, you'll have to give us some more clues - what type of booking do you have for a start (there are ten categories at POR). You could check out www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php in the meantime for some ideas.
