    We are going to be staying @ PO riverside. My ? is when do we request staying at a certain section of the resort? Can we only do this a check-in? Thanks!!


    You can make specific recommendations when you make your reservation. They will not promise that they will be honored, but make sure they are noted. The sooner a reservation request is noted, the higher in the overall "queue" they are, and stand a greater chance to be honored.

    If you have already made your reservation just contact with whom you made that reservation and have your requests added.

    Also, make sure you do the online check-in before you leave for Walt Disney World. This can be done up to 10 days ahead of time, and not only speeds up your check-in time on arrival day but gives you another chance to note those special requests you might have. In case you did not know about this new feature, online check in can be done at the website when you click on "My Vacation" in the upper right.

    Have a magical vacation!
