We are very excited!! I do not have a ticker since this is a surprise trip for the girls. We are doing Universal too, before WDW.
That's great! So the P/S/D discounts are valid for French Quarter too - that's good news as the room-only offers seem to be for Riverside only (unless anyone has been lucky with FQ on this?)

Yes! I had a room only FQ res with 20% CAA (Canadian AAA) discount, and just switched to the new P/S/D at FQ. I priced out both FQ & Riverside, and FQ had the same exact pricing.

Dunno . I booked in July. My friend also booked in July and got the 20%. I used CAA (Canadian AAA) but girlfriend is in Calif. and used AAA. We got the same discount. 20%. I did book with wdw reservations, not AAA.

Will I love FQ?

I love POR, have had 3 stays there. It has become our fav moderate. But going to try FQ this trip for something new. I've seen the new rooms, a friend was staying there while we were at POR and thought they looked great. And looking forward to checking out Elliott's show.
And I'll be comfortably close to POR for my Pasta Bar fix .

FQ has a 5% discount for RO and that seems limited to a few rooms.

I also was able to apply S/P/D to my reservation, I ended up saving $800!

Can someone point me in the right direction for requests again? Is it in this thread somewhere? I really need to get going on my final planning....
and I REALLY love those way out rooms in building 7..... BTW, is the room request process the same in every Dis resort? (staying at Pop for a night also,and like their 'far out' rooms in the back) Thanks!

If there's anything you need to know that's not covered in www.portorleans.org/room-requests.php please let me know so I can add it.

Arrgh! - Room requests not working

I'm trying to do online check in and there is no where to type in the room request.

It brings up a box that says limit it to 2 but there is no where for text. When I click submit it takes me back to the beginning and none of our info is in there - cc, address, etc - everything I previously entered.

How do you use the box to make a room request?

I did talk to someone directly at our resort and made a request - is that why I can't type one in now? I wanted to be more specific with the online request.

Online check-in has a couple of things that pop up, but it is not a place to make the requests; requests are attached to your reservation. When you called the "resort" number, which put you through to a central call center, where a CM pulled up your ressie and placed the requests on it for you. You were not talking directly to the resort.

You will be fine. If you want to modify it, call the number again and they will add it to your ressie.

I used online checkin last week. My only choices were close to main building/transportation and first floor. I only had a standard room booked. But it gave me no option to put in specific room requests. I had requested building 4 or 5 (yeah I know no standard rooms there anymore but it never hurts to try) so I figure I might have a chance, but we'll see.

Of course there was a computer foul up and I had to call and they gave me a direct website to go to instead of using the links on the WDW website. Don't know if that changes anything.

I called the direct number for the resort from the POFQ site by Andre and she answered it POFQ - I was verifying the shipping address and what I needed to do to ship water and packages.

FYI - she said to include the reservation # or check in date on the mailing label.

I'm hoping that is the actual resort # - I have it saved in case we need their lost and found.

Do you mean this number, (407) 934-5000? That's a call center.

I just called that number to make a room request and he told me to call back within 10 days of my check-in date. Don't they usually just add it whenever you call?

Which number? If you're calling in advance then you should phone the main Disney Reservation Center number - i.e. 407-WDISNEY. If you're within a few days of arrival, call the resort number directly.
