I booked the whole lot as a package too, directly with Disney. When I log onto MDE it shows the resort reservation and DP but there are no tickets linked...

We managed to get a double dose of disney pixie dust today , first the ability to customise our magic bands became available and then when DW called to check with disney how we go about the tickets as we didn't know if they would get them added automatically or whether we would need to present the vouchers on arrival, the cast member DW spoke to could see we had the dining plan and the the ultimate 14 day park tickets and linked the park tickets to enable us to book FP+ tickets when the reservation window for our booking becomes available..

All in all a great day, roll on the end of November and our first stay in POFQ

Here now... Not having the most magical of times. I loooove love love this resort, this isn't our first stay. However, we have switched rooms four times already.
Firstly, when we did online check In,, called disney, etc... We specifically said we did not want conjoining rooms.
We check in... Had conjoining rooms. We had a dining reservation to get to not long after check in, so we decided to take care of it when we got back to the resort.

We return, go to the front desk, had another room issued to us. Transfered alllll of our things to a room in building 1, in the boonies facing a parking lot. Which was ok I guess. Get into the room and saw a balled up wash cloth with hair in it shoved under the sink. (paid for garden view btw). Called front desk again, they said "we will have another room for you in the morning, we apologize, just call bellhop in the am and we will have your bags sent to your new room when you return from your park day." we say ok fine. Cool.

So we go out to play at a park and just returned. We go to front desk, get our new room issued (third one guys!) We hobble over to building 3, ok cool! Get up to our room, and BAM!!!! Conjoining flippen room again. At this point I just want to cry. We havent been able to properly unpack since we got here. Sooo hubby marches down to the front desk and said... "Well.. We got another conjoining room, thats what started the room changes to begin with". So they moved up to building 5. Now we are siting waiting on our luggage, once again. . .

Im pretty bummed. I normally don't complain over small stuff, but this vacation happens once in a while, its not cheap. And I just didn't want to be so close to someone to where I can fear them fart. I love this resort, but jeeeez louise.

About 50% of the rooms have connecting doors, and we tend to find we get one as often as not. To be really honest, at least for us, it seems to make no difference whatsoever - there are TWO heavy doors (making them lockable from both sides) between you and the next room; there is generally no more sound leakage via those doors than there is through the walls. I guess the only exception is if your neighbours decide to open the door on their side deliberately, but that game rarely lasts long.

I'd say just forget it and enjoy my stay to be honest. Unless you really feel that half of the guests staying at the hotel are getting 'superior' rooms to the other half...

We had conjoining rooms at the Gatwick Hilton once, and didn't think much of it, but the family in the next room were really loud. But I don't know if that was just coincidence.

But a Disney holiday is expensive and you want what you've paid for. Hope you get your room sorted soon! x

Thanks for the responses. My "neighbors" had little ones that, I'm guessing, thought that the door was a toy, secret passage way.. Who knows. Its just my husband and myself celebrating our first anniversary, (honeymooned here last year as well) so we just wanted a bit of relaxation.

So about 50% of the other rooms are not connecting, and thats what we asked for.

That's what you requested anyway, please remember that requests are not guaranteed. You cannot book a room that is guaranteed with (or without, in your case) a connecting door.

However, that said, this does all seem like a lot of hassle for you (and for them, come to think of it!) It sounds like each new complaint that you have made has been dealt with separately, rather than in conjunction with any other previous requests.

In hindsight, it might have been easier for them to simply move the wash-flannel and re-clean the basin rather than moving you all round the resort again!

Its all good. I was just shocked at the back and forth from the front desk.
If theres a next time, ill just deal with it. Whats $2000 plus dollars.... pocket change. Silly of me to have expectations.

After two days, im off to finally unpack. Ttfn.

Good plan! Building 5 is a nice location (near to pool, near to movies/campfire courtyard, near to foodcourt/buses and even fairly close for the boat dock) so I hope it works out well for you at last and you can relax and enjoy.

We are at 64 days and I am wondering if we should do online checkin. We have 2 rooms and requested first floor Bldg. 4 on our reservation. The reservations are linked and I read somewhere you can not do online for multiple rooms. Will we still be able to personalize magic bands if we don't do online? Getting excited

We are 62 days out and the option to personalise our magic bands appeared this morning ... Just keep checking in MDE and hopefully they'll appear soon

Thanks..I just checked and was able to personalize bands. It said we could edit until Oct 30 so does it mean that is when they will be mailed to us?

Anyone able to answer my question about online check in for multiple rooms?

Don't know as we will have to collect ours at check-in as Disney don't ship magic bands to the uk ...yet

Hope you get an answer for your online check in query
