    We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside in the Alligator Bayou. We would like a location that is near the bus stop, swimming and the dining area. What building number do you recommend? Can't wait to go!


    You will have to upgrade to a preferred room, but Building 14 is going to put you closest to the Ol' Man River swimming pool complex, Boatwright's and other dining, and one of the bus stops. Keep in mind that even if you don't want to pay for a preferred location, you can state on your reservation and also at online check-in where you'd like to be. I've found that I get a better location if I tell Disney what I'm looking for in a room rather than a specific building request. I tend to get closer to what I'd like. If you simply state that you want a certain building, it may be full and then Disney doesn't know why you requested it, making a bigger puzzle for them. Of course, requests aren't guaranteed but you are welcome to make them, and Disney does take them into consideration.

    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
