    Going to arrive POR 9/23/11. We opted for the standard room when we booked our vacation. Now we want a preferred room and none are available! What standard room should we request when we check in for the closest to the main lobby and bus stop?

    Hi Kathy!

           Port Orleans Riverside is such a wonderful resort with so much to offer!  It is also quite large and some of the more distant rooms can be quite a trek to the lobby.  Fortunately, there are many bus stops scattered throughout the property and you can always find one just a few minutes away from your room.  

          If you are saying in the Mansion area of Riverside, there actually aren't any preferred location rooms!  Rather, they are priced by view.  In order to be as close as possible to the food court, dining and lobby, I would request a room in Magnolia Terrace.  It is directly across the bridge and like the others, it is absolutely stunning!  However, if you are staying in the Alligator Bayou section, preferred rooms are located in Buildings 14, 15, 18 and 27.  I would request a standard room in Building 16 - Disney can't guarantee your request, but will do their best to honor it.  Have a wonderful vacation!

    Much pixie dust,
