    Thanks for the clarification. Last year we stayed in the preferred rooms and this year we have the garden view. I'm just so excited about going in June. I'm certainly counting down.

    Target and Walmart have a hanging collapsible organizer for 15$. You can try that.

    Well could help you again this year too lol?

    Andre, thanks for your work on the Port Orleans website. I didn't realize that was you....I just figured you were a very helpful DISboards poster who REALLY likes POR:thumbsup2

    As someone planning her first visit, I have used this thread and the POR a lot:)

    One general question; if we booked through a TA, can I still send a room request fax, or does that need to go through the TA? I just want to make sure I have the best chance of getting connecting rooms for our visit.....

    Thanks very much

    I might, but I am worried about the hanging space it will take in the closet. I think with 4 suitcases I am going to need to put those in there, and will need things that can hang "above" them, KWIM? Our suitcases are all 29" tall, so I can't even put one inside the other to save space.

    I've already asked that question, and at the moment it is not possible for King Bed category rooms to be booked for more than two people. However that is a limitation of the booking system (which does not know about the upgrade) rather than the rooms themselves, which would take three people easily.

    Yes you can still send in room request faxes I booked through AAA travel agents and sent mine in.

    I believe you would have enough room for one possibly two and still fit four suitcases there.

    Very cool Andre! And thanks so much. We are working on our ADR's that need to go in February for our return to POR in August. Can't wait to stay in the RGR again.

    Thanks for all the incredible pics and tips on requests. We just booked our trip to Disney for May 2013 with a split stay at both POR and BC. We almost went entirely with BC but I am so in love with the pics of POR and this saves us a few bucks too. Just hoping we wont be too cramped with 3 adults a 4 year old and 22 month old twins.

    Now I have to start planning our days and dining. So much fun!

    Awesome!! I will definitely look into getting one.

    I am SO excited to be really "planning" this trip!! :cool1: These mother/son trips are always so much fun for us!! We love going in June (I know, we are crazy) but the crowds and heat really don't get to us any more. We have done it so many times now that we know the importance of rope drop (or staying very late), swim breaks and realizing that a touring plan is just that, a plan, and not something to live, breathe and die by if it goes awry...

    Thanks again for all the helpful info on this thread to add to my planning needs! I'm really excited to give POR another try, and its in large part to the great information here! :goodvibes

    Thank you so much for the help with room requests! We arrived very early this morning after a red eye from San Francisco. I had sent a request for a river view in Magnolia Bend for my already booked king bed. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived and I didn't expect it to be but we were too tired to manage doing much so we walked around Downtown Disney for a bit and then lounged in hammocks for a while until we got the text. And I could not be happier. We have a gorgeous corner room on the second floor in Magnolia Terrace. It's beautiful. I was nearly in tears. I'm so glad I found this forum and that it persuaded me toward POR. It is a perfect place for our honeymoon.

    That's very true, I guess because I'm one of the clueless people that never in a million years thought I'd be able to afford to bring my 4yr olds to DisneyWorld (let alone stay at a Disney resort!!) I'm just completely overwhelmed by everything!
    Thank you so much for all your information, I am so OTT excited about this trip!

    Well, I am finally caught up again reading this thread and I have got to add my THANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR DILIGENT WORK, ANDRE! :thumbsup2:thumbsup2:

    You gave a wonderful New Year's gift to all of us here on the disboards and followers of your portorleans.org. I've listened to you and Venomhatch and will not request by specific room numbers, but these images clearly answer so many of the repeated questions on where certain room type accommodations may be located. This is a wonderful help to everyone and especially to those of us who have never been to POR or POFQ but are currently counting down the days to our first visit at this resort.

    So glad you're happy with your room, the riverfront rooms in Magnolia Terrace are lovely, with easy access to everything and a gorgeous view. Oh, and congratulations on your marriage too, sounds like we're in danger of forgetting that little detail in all the Disneyness!

    Don't forget to go and see Bob Jackson at the River Roost Lounge one evening later in the week, and make sure you wear your wedding buttons.

    Andre
