    I’m trying to plan a vacation and I am very interested in staying in Port Orleans my question is are joint rooms more expensive? And how would I go about requesting joint rooms?

    Hi Juan,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question about your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Picking which Disney Resort Collection hotel is such a fun way to start your planning process and I'm happy to help you start this Magical journey.

    I can confirm that both Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter offer a limited supply of adjoining and connecting rooms.  Adjoining rooms means that the rooms are adjacent (next to each other), and connecting rooms means that the rooms have an interior connection such as a doorway between the two rooms.  I have a large family and when our children were young, we would request connecting rooms whenever we would book 2 hotel rooms.  Now that my children are older, we usually request adjacent or nearby rooms for our 2 or more hotel rooms.

    You will be happy to know that requesting connecting or nearby rooms does not incur any additional cost, however it is not guaranteed.  In my experience, the Disney Resort hotel staff do their very best to honor as many Guest requests as possible.  There are a few ways to make your request to help increase the odds of your request being honored.  The first one is to note it at the time of your booking.  If you are booking your Disney Resort hotel reservation online, you can note your request during your checkout under "Guest Information", and within that section you can select the option for "Room and Amenity Requests".  After you select the "Room and Amenity Requests" you will then have the option to select either "Nearby Room" or "With Connecting Door".  Another way to request either a nearby or connecting room is to use this handy-dandy email form to submit your request after you have made your Disney Resort hotel reservation.  Alternatively, you can also call the number listed in here for Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and ask for your request to be noted on your reservation.

    Juan, I have another tip for you as you are planning your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Once you have made your Walt Disney World Resort vacation reservation, keep an eye on this page for Special Offers, Deals, & Discounts.  If you see a special offer that could apply to your reservation, you should call to see if it is available to be applied to your current reservation.  Each offer has a limited quantity, so it is a good idea to check often and to call as soon as you see an offer that could apply to your visit.  In the past, I have applied Special Offers to my existing reservation as well as "re-booked" my vacation in order to stay at a Disney Deluxe Resort hotel and also to take advantage of a Disney Dining promotion.

    I hope this information helps you in planning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  Please come back and visit us here at planDisney with all of your vacation planning questions.  We are always excited to help you plan your next Magical adventure.

    See Ya Real Soon,
