I faxed in my request yesterday and followed up with a phone call. I got a call back today from Mr. Elg saying that my request was noted and my room was assigned to the area of block of rooms I'd requested! That is WONDERFUL news! Thanks everyone, especially Venomhatch, for your help! I can't wait to be there in 48 hours!!!

I was under the same impression. I sent the fax in today for check-in on December 9th. The fax machine must be going nuts from the posts on this thread!!

Glad to see the POR Fairy helped you out by giving you both some extra pixie dust! I hope both of your families have a magical time!

You'd have to take the monorail or ferry over from MK to the TTC to get a taxi

Not so, you can get a Taxi from POR. In fact, they now have Taxi stations there.

Hey BSG, they were right they are talking about, "from the Magic Kingdom to POR."

We are having a great time at POR!! Weather is beautiful and resort is lovely. Sent a fax to request building 16 or 17. Upon check in we were upgraded to building 14. We are on the first floor and just a few steps from the main building.
A special thanks to venomhatch for all the help

We checked in yesterday. I had requested Magnolia Bend when I booked but the room we were assigned was in Alligator Bayou. I asked whether any rooms in Magnolia Bend were open and there were so we were able to switch. No idea why the request was ignored in the first place; it's not like the hotel is full right now. But no big deal, the CM at the front desk was most helpful and we're staying in Acadian House now and are very happy. This is such a beautiful resort and we're really enjoying it.
