This is great I will use this, but what is the fax number we send it to? Is it the number on the first post?

We checked in this evening and were also upgraded to a Royal Guest Room! Such a neat surprise!

Thank you Venomhatch, for all of your advise on the fax! It really worked ❤

Yes, on a tray on top of the fridge in fact.

In all seriousness though, that is one downside of resort staff going way above and beyond the normal level of guest service - people start to expect it rather than just being happy when they get a bit of extra pixie dust. Some WDW resorts apparently just throw room-request faxes away (we've been told) yet because of the sterling work from the room assignment folks at Port Orleans we're now starting to see people worrying when they haven't been emailed back to confirm all of their requests within a few hours.

We arrive at POR FEb. 5th - 12th. There's four of us including one rather temperamental 22 month old. Right now we have a rental car reserved for under $200.00 but are struggling with if we should keep it our just use Disney transportation. Extra Disney money is extra Disney money. Can anyone please give me feedback on the bus system? Would love & appreciate opinions.

For less than $200, I think I'd keep the rental car - especially if you want to do anything off-site or visit other Disney resorts. The Disney buses will get you to where you want to go, it just might takle a bit longer.

That's a shame. What did they say at the check-in desk when you asked if they could get the room assignment team to find you a room in the mansions instead? I'd be amazed if they were at 100% capacity the last week in January, and it's obviously a big deal for you if it's spoiling your whole vacation and you wouldn't return there.

Andre[/QUOTE]

Riverside was at 100% capacity when we checked in. Holiday weekend and the Mansions were full of dancing teams or some such groups. They said we could move the next day, but that takes up a lot of park time and is a lot of trouble. I have always been hesitant to stay at POR for this very reason....taking a chance on getting put in the AB section. We are having a great trip and it is not spoiled at all. It has become a running joke since we stay lost most of the time!! We are just not fans of the swamp!!

This thread was started September 27, not even 4 months ago. We're already up to 200 pages. I wonder if we need a separate POR Fax Info thread. That might help this thread last a little longer. Just a thought, carry on.

Honestly, I hate to even waste a post space on this, but I am most concerned that we will hit the 250 limit while Andre is in WDW next month.
