    That sounds about right. I think they just want a general idea of when you are going to be there. We usually check in in the morning, and the past 3 times, our room was ready, and I think it might have been because they knew when we planned to arrive.

    Have a good trip! We will be there in a few days!

    So excited. Hubby gave the go ahead and we just booked a room for March 12-16! We will be celebrating our daughters 5th birthday and the 4th anniversary of becoming a family or Gotcha Day! Now searching threads trying to figure out meals, characteres and such. Any other ideas on how to make things a bit more special?

    If you have the money, check out the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. It's a dessert buffet and guaranteed seats for the fireworks show. The desserts are great and plentiful!

    I miss summers up there! It's perfect! It will come soon! But when it gets here for you don't forget to hit the slowdown button so it can almost last forever.

    What a great thread!

    I'm finally staying at POR on my next trip! I've always wanted to stay there. We're doing 3 nights at All Star Sports first, and then 4 nights at POR!!!! I can't wait! :yay:

    Is POR having anything special in the time leading up to Mardi Gras? I've seen a couple of things mentioned about things @ Disneyland but nothing for WDW?

    Mardi Gras itself is always fun at Port Orleans, see http://www.portorleans.org/mardigras.php. Details don't tend to be announced far in advance though.

    This is the link that has worked for me, when I could not get in through the regular My Disney Experience on the website:

    www.mydisneyreservation.com

    Hope this helps!

    I've been trying online check-in and I am not able to add room requests. Anyone else have this trouble?

    Has anyone ever placed an order through the disney store and had it delivered to a resort? I am in Canada and shipping is expensive so I would like to have my order at WDW when we arrive. How far out would you place the order?

    Oops, I've got a third question. We are taking a 4L camel bak bag to carry water. Where would it be best to fill it - our room, food court?
    Thanks.

    This is why guests have been faxing their requests in.

    I know we are well within our time frame also and haven't performed the check in either just to wait for the right window to open to send.

    We have recent experience with the disney store orders (we are in Canada too). We ordered ahead of time thinking it would take a while to get there. But it was shipped within 24 hours and in 2 days had arrived @ POR!! I feel bad that the resort has to hold it so long.

    Someone else here posted recently that they ordered as well but it still hadn't arrived.

    I would order 2 weeks ahead of time....or more.

    That's awesome! I won't have access to a fax until Sunday, but we'll do it then!! I have the fax example you posted recently so I'lll use that and then send it to the fax number that's in the first post, is this correct?

    Thanks Venom!!!
