    You guys rock! we have 8 in our group 2 bookings need rooms next to each other staying at POR 9/19-9/27. Also need first floor due to medical reasons. would like to be close to pool food and bus 5a3c5,5,9. first timers for some what building would be best


    When we went to Disney and stayed at Port Orleans: Riverside, we requested Buildings 14 or 18.  Thankfully, they put us in 18 which seemed a lot more quiet than 14 and nearer to the pool.  But I didn't tell them why I wanted either of those buildings, it just worked out.

    Since then, I've learned that it is best to tell the reservationist what you're looking for in a room (first or second floor, near a pool or away in a quiet spot, etc.), rather than just a specific building, otherwise Disney may just be guessing why you want a specific building.  THEN prioritize what is more important to you, the first-floor room over being near the pool or vice versa.  As in your case, what good is a room near the bus stop and pool if it's on the second floor? 

    Just call Disney and have them make a note of your needs on the reservation, then call and confirm about two weeks to ten days out.  Disney can't guarantee all of your requests will be met, but they will do their best!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
