We had a two window royal room at the beg of oct....room 9222 in parterre place.....not too close to bridge, but close to parking and east bus stop....we definitely liked the two windows....i think it made the room much nicer (felt bigger, was brighter, and extra set of "royal" curtains made room even more decorative)

Thanks for all the great tips on room requests and the quiet pools. I'm going to consider booking a Royal Room so I could be guaranteed a mansion room.

Still reading and learning about POR. The PortOrleans.org website is outstanding!

Checking in to POR in 7 days!! Thanks for the fax sheet Venomhatch. Sent it in and got a quick email response about our requests. So excited about this trip as we still haven't told the kids about it. Out of curiousity, does anyone know if Lactaid milk is available anywhere on site? If not we will be using garden grocery probably

Hello TDDisney

Thanks much for responding

I found Room 9222 on the map however, am still trying to make sense of the room locations

Was there a room above you? How was the noise level?

Thanks again!!

Have a magical weekend

I can't believe I found the answer to this!! According to Andre's map on Portorleans.org, it is on the 2nd floor; which is the top floor in that area of Oak Manor.

Hi reader562

Thanks much for responding

Pixie Dust to you

This is great news... I'm map illiterate and you have provided the missing piece, to help me understand that section of the map...

THANK YOU

Have a magical weekend

Well there's no harm in asking. Even though there are relatively few King Bed rooms, if there is any space then they may well be able to help you.

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.

Online Fax

Any suggestion for an online fax company to use?

It was a super quiet location. We never heard a soul, and I am a very light sleeper. We requested a top floor and mentioned that we were sensitive sleepers, so
I'm guessing that's why we got that. 9222 is a standard view (parking lot and half garden), but we don't look out the windows much :-). It seemed like there was a third floor above us, but I never saw or heard anyone up there. And, since we requested top floor I'm wondering if there was noone up there.
