    Venomhatch--- I promise I am not stalking you, lol, but we were both Pixie Dusted last year to the Poly after the RGR were not ready. Well, I'm going back, and finally booked my RGR at POR! I just had to giggle when I finally made my way over here to see that you were also going back... and staying at POR RGR.

    Hi everybody! I visited POR last Princess half marathon with a friend and thought it was just lovely. Doing a split stay this trip with half at CSR and half at POR RGR. Can't wait!

    You show up the day after I leave! :lmao: I'll be at WDW from Feb 22-Feb 28 for the Princess.

    I remember you because some gave you in particular a hard time for getting extra Pixie Dust. @@ Did you like the Poly?

    The fact that people are saying they've stayed in numerous deluxe hotels and prefer POR over all others has me very, very excited for our July 2013 vacation.

    I can tell you I took a deal one year with 2 friends to upgrade to SSR at a $200.00 savings. I thought, hey, it had all the same amentities and it was deluxe.

    One night, we rode the water taxi to DTD. I cried and my traveling companions agreed they wished we had not changed. Se spent ech evening at POR.

    Returned on Monday from a short 3 night stay. Thanks to Venomhatch for the great advice. We requested building 16, closest to food court without being preferred. We were given an upgrade into a pool view corner room. It was great, my sons loved the pull down beds. We enjoyed the pool, food court, lounge, and surrey bikes. The buses were fine and we took the boat back from DTD. All in all it was a great stay and we were very happy with our decision. Thanks again to Venom and all the wonderful people who post here. Happy Thanksgiving!

    No problem. I am sorry I didn't see it sooner. I get about 10-15 PMs a day regarding POR so I am drawn to that.

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    We are not going until May, but I requested bldg 18 on our initial reservation. Not preferred but still close I think to the main bldg? Was this a good choice?:confused3 Also, how far in advance would I call to make a room request? 10 days prior? I realize we still have a long wait, but just wondering! Thanks!:goodvibes

    Very good call on the building choice. I usually tell guests 17 because it isn't preferred but building 18 is preferred. So I don't know if you will get that. Unless they sprinkle some magic. Well they can see your request 30 days or less out so you can at that point send the fax. PM me if you need further help.
