    Hi Judy!

    Congratulations on your fast-approaching Walt Disney World vacation!

    You're going to love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. My most recent stay there was just this past December and I had a wonderful time as usual. My favourite new addition to this wonderful property was the cappuccino and espresso machine in the Riverside Mill food court! There's nothing like a great cup of coffee to start a Magical day out right! ;)

    The In-Room safes at Port Orleans Riverside are located in the 'closet' area of the vanity section of the bathroom. They utilize a key which you'll want to be sure to tuck into a safe location once you've deposited your valuables. The safe interior area is about 2-3 inches deep and about 6-8 inches high, about a foot across. I've had no problem locking up my passport folder containing our travel documents, small wallets, car keys, cell phones etc. They're not large enough for such items as iPads or notebook computers.

    To add a request to your Resort Reservation, such as a particular floor you want to be on or a building or two you'd prefer to be in, simply call in and speak to a Cast Member at (407) 939-7675. Have your reservation number handy at the time of your call. Advise the Cast Member that you'd like to have a note added to your reservation. Your request(s) will be notated and although they cannot be guaranteed, those in charge of room assignments will do their best to meet your request based on availability at the time of your assignment. Always mention your request again at the time of check-in just in case it was overlooked.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Judy!
    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
