That is great. I just didn't want to wait until a week before if I had to make arrangements well ahead of time. I'm just a little nervous as he has been sick for a month now and can't seem to shake it.

We just returned from our extended weekend stay at POR (our first visit to this resort); we had a very pleasant experience for the most part.

I did fax in a room request letter, and we got none of our requests. Not our lucky weekend I guess. The room (AB 16) was quiet, clean, had a very pretty garden view, and we did have a refrigerator. Our daughter enjoyed the main pool, and my husband and I enjoyed the pool atmosphere (AKA refreshment stand) which allowed us to relax while keeping a close eye on the child.

We found the bus schedule to be quite regular, and we only had one issue with being packed in like sardines (heading to MK for rope drop). Our magic bands worked flawlessly and we decided that we are fans of the NextGen initiative. All in all a successful trip despite the somewhat crowded parks and very warm temperatures.

Thanks for all the great information provided on this thread.

Well I checked out the room we stayed in this past spring on that site and it said no connecting room but it was in fact a connecting room ! I am guessing the site isn't overly accurate

Well-our first visit to POR was booked this morning using S/P/D.

Mom, Dad, DD8
King room with pull down bed (yay us, Mom and Dad will sleep!)
4 day hoppers and dining plan
Savings of $363 from rack rate-maybe I will get an FD PIN and save another $181.
Decided to book it to get the King room.

Thank you, firstwdw! I think their site must be missing that information all together.

Speaking of the elusive PINs, does anyone know if those can be transferred? I'm guessing not, but I know a friend who just received one and will not be able to use it. Any chance she could pass it on to me?

No, they're only for the person they're addressed to.

Ah, sorry, I thought that was covered? I believe that it's a sort of a "blanket sandwich" at the moment (sheet/blanket/sheet) but whichever, I'm sure you'll be able to request one anyway. There was always a blanket under the old comforters.

About 50% of all room types connect. The only thing you can't easily get is King-to-King connecting directly (there are some King-to-Queens though), and also the fully Wheelchair Accessible rooms don't connect (as the relocated beds cover up the space where the doorway would have been).

I rate their site very highly indeed, and their Lines app is wonderful for live touring plan tweaking if you're on a tight schedule - just give it the attractions you want to visit, and your timescale and preferences for breaks/etc, and hit the optimise button and it'll give you a step-by-step plan to keep your waiting to a minimum.

Wow I'm kinda bummed. Only RGR standard view was available when I booked with free dining (wanted to return to POFQ). Now with the fridge and the bedspread situations I am feeling not so exicted to have booked this room. Really wanted preferred but none available at booking. Am I correct that I cannot switch resorts at this time without losing the free dining?
