I am so excited!! I booked 1 week for dh and I in April. We are going for our 15th anniversary. We booked with the Spring discount but there was no prefered available to book. I was a little bummed but requested certain buildings. I checked last night and they had prefered, it was to late to call last night but I called first thing this morning and got it!! Stoked.

Online Checkin/Charging Privileges/Fax Requests Questions

This will be my fourth stay at POR! 107 More Days! I can't wait!

I have put the deposit down for 2 rooms. My Mother will be paying the balance when we arrive. My mom and I are staying in one room and my friend and her son are staying in the other room. We would each like our own credit cards linked for charging privileges. Can I still do Online Checkin when the time comes? Or would the charging privileges make it a more complicated check in process that would cause me to wait until we arrive to check in??

On our last trip my mom and I had our own credit cards linked to our own room cards. When we got home and saw our bill we were VERY confused by it first of all, but then it seemed as if my mother's credit card was charged for all our charges. The bill showed a line item every day that was the room cost and taxes. The whole bill was very confusing to follow to see what was charged or credited on any given day!! So obviously with another person coming with us we'll really want to make sure this is done correctly!!

I know I have plenty of time, but since I'm posting... How many days before your trip should Faxed Requests be sent in?

THANKS!!

The new computer system now allows multiple credit cards in one room so you are good.

If you opt to do online check-in, you can indicate the one card and add any additional cards when you check-in.

ok good to know! i will just be sure to double check on Day 2 to make sure everything is getting charged to the correct cards.

Also, did I hear correctly that we can do the Online Check In up to 60 days ahead of arrival? And if so, if I put in room requests there, would be it ok to still send a Fax Request a few days ahead of our arrival?

I can't believe I have so many questions! haha This is my 11th WDW trip, and my 4th POR stay, but I have never done online check in or faxed requests or anything. But this is a big bday trip for me and my friend (the big, scary, 4-0!... and my mom's bday too) and it's my friend and her son's first trip ever so I want to make it special! Thanks for your patience with me!!!!

Ok spoke to Room Assignment team just now. They do welcome faxed in room requests but you may not get a confirmation call or email. But he or one of the fellow CMs will try to reach back. But if they can they will try requests are just that. But POR tries to spread all the magic they can with possibilities of a little magic from time to time.

We are looking forward to our first stay at POR, and we arrive on Easter Sunday. I just completed the online check in on Wed.. We reserved a Royal Room with river view. I selected the request for both corner room and ground floor. Having not stayed here before, I am not sure if that was a good request. Can anyone comment on the view from this room type? Thinking that we may want to step outside the room for a drink while the kids fall asleep. I am not familiar with this resort. Can we just stroll to the lawn from the first floor room, or is there a rail or walkway leading to steps?

Thanks so much for all the help!
It's actually not necessary to have a later check-out to be able to use the pool and go to DTD on your last day. When you check out, just drop your luggage off with Bell Services (or better yet, take advantage of RAC (assuming that you're using a participating airline.)) You can also drop off your carry-ons with Bell Services.

Yep. I've stayed at POR twice (once way back when it was Dixie Landings) and got placed in Alligator Bayou both times as a solo.

Yes, but generally in riverview rooms, you will still have some traffic coming by.

I was in Parterre Place (before RR's) and was lucky enough to be in a corner room on the second end farther from the main building - hardly anyone walked by my room, since there were so many other ways to go. However, I was able to actually pull my chair out into the alcove and watch the water taxi go by without anyone really needing to get by.

The lawn abuts right to the sidewalk. But trust me, when you see how immaculate the landscaping is, you hesitate stepping onto the lawn - you will want to stay to the sidewalks.

I got approval from my manager and finally booked!! May 4-11th RR Standard veiw.

I have some crazy flights booked (Red eye there and 13+ hours to get home) but I saved myself and extra $380 by doing this. I save on flight cost (flying out of Bellingham instead of Vancouver) and not having to stay the night on May 3rd.

I just hope I can make it through the day with very little sleep.

Quick question.
Does the lead person on the reservation need to be the one to check in?
When we arrive at MCO my husband is picking up the rental car and we are taking Magical Express (the kids really like M.E).

I was thinking he could stop on the way and pick up any grocery items we need. If we beat him there can we check in or does he need to be the one to do it since he booked the trip? We are all listed on the reservation. Just curious.
