    Hi Andrea, My family and I would like to stay in a royal room at POR this fall. We would like to be on the ground floor with a river view and close to the quiet pool. Any suggestions on how to request all of our wishes with the Disney? Thanks,

    Hi, Matthew!

    Great question...and great plans, too! ;-)

    When I have several requests when booking my Walt Disney World Resort stay, I'll call rather than book online. If you are looking to book a Vacation Package, take a look at this link for Vacation Packages to Walt Disney World, then call (407) 939-5277. Tell the Cast Member who is assisting you what your requests are for your stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside. There is a specific category for Royal Guest Rooms with a River View; however, your request for a first floor location near the quiet pool can be noted by a Cast Member on the phone as well.

    Of course, such requests are not guaranteed, but Cast Members would love to locate Guests' rooms in a preferred location if it is possible, so letting them know your preferences is actually very helpful!

    Best wishes for the Royal Guest Room of your dreams, Matthew! You are sure to LOVE Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside; it's a very special place! (If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the UNOFFICIAL, fan-generated site So many wonderful photos and'll be smiling for hours as you read through them!)

    Send more questions as you plan your fall trip to WDW, Matthew; I'd love to help!
