    My boyfriend and I are coming to Disney the last week in August and made reseverations for Port Orleans Riverside. Should we request a certain location there and if so how do we go about doing this? Thanks!

    Hi Karen,

    Port Orleans Riverside has become our family's "home" resort since it meets it can accommodate a family of 5 while still managing to keep us on a budget.  Our favorite buildings are 14 and 18 with 15 being the runner-up.  They are in the Alligator Bayou area which is more rustic and has lush landscaping with little ponds throughout area.  We like these building because they are in close proximity to the main building and bus stop.  

    While there are no guarantees, I'd always try to include a building request within your reservation.  To do so, you can call 407-W-DISNEY and ask that that notation be made within your reservation.  

    Some resorts also accept fax requests.  A thorough explanation of doing this can be found at by doing a search for "faxing your room preferences."  

    Have a magical trip!  Kara
