    This is my fear! We're booked with a Royal Room - Garden View, and I'm worried we'll be on the parking lot side. I know, really, don't sweat the small stuff, but it's crossed my mind ;) I guess when I fax my request I can nicely ask to be on the water side of the building?

    Can anyone refresh my memory as to whether there will be an iron and a blow dryer in the room? I didn't use either on our last stay at POR, but with a new haircut and my DDs having a few outfits that may need to be pressed, I'm worrying about it this time.

    Thank you! I'm thinking of just casting fate to the room-assigning gods, but if I decide against that, I'll probably request "Upper floor, Oak Manor, North Wing."

    Thanks again! :wave2:

    Yay and congrats to you both!!!! I wish we could go before November, but it's just not possible. :( We can only do a trip every other year.

    Better to request what you want, i.e. "a room overlooking the marina and main building area if at all possible" and see what they can do for you.

    I notice that you're in Canada; you may still be getting the old website, which doesn't have the same room request options as the new one.

    My girlfriend and I are booked for May 24-June 2. She's never been to Disney, and I haven't been for probably 10 years. Very excited! I have gone through this whole thread, and will continue following it. Andre and Venom, you two are amazing!

    Does anyone know how late the Campfire on de' Bayou runs in the winter? I see that it starts around 5:30pm but will we miss it if we don't get back to the resort until after 9pm or so?

    Thanks! :)
