Luvamouse - great discount, woohoo!

Prior to the 2007 renovations, each building DID have various decors. We loved it, especially the Alice and Floral themes, so whimsical. I was sad they changed it so that every room is the same, but I hate for things I love to change anyway.

DetTigsGal - Good to see you, whenever you have time to pop in.

Conch marina view was first choice, backed it up with Sago.

Thanks for the tips.

Hey guys its me again! I just keep coming back for answers to my questions because you guys are so helpful

The morning of our wedding I will be getting my hair and make up done in our room with my mom and my fiances mom. I wanted to order room service for that morning (after 6 am - because I think I read some where thats when it starts). Does anyone have the phone number so that I could order ahead of time? I know they may not let me order this far in advance but I could just let them know room number when we get there? Even if I had to pay now to confirm. Also if anyone knows where I could find the menu for that so I could take orders of what they want now.

Thanks so much for any help that you can offer.

Online Checkin Question... There are threads about NOT being able to make a request with Online Chekc-In, but what about requests you have already made at the time of booking? We are arriving New Year's Day and saving well over $600 by staying that one night at POR. Then on to the GF LV! I figured that it might be smart to do online checkin for both when I am leaving Savannah for the last leg of the trip. Hopefully it will be that much quicker when we arrive

Any experience with this question? I was afraid to do online checkin last time too...

Sugarloaf during construction

Does anyone have a pic of the courtyard renovations? We are staying in SL the last week of November, I always get a pool view but I am afraid of looking at the mess - is the marina view better, and is it very noisy on that side from the boats? I am going with 4 friends, 3 have never been to WDW and I want to get the nicest room I can (and I totally understand a request is just a request) - trying to imagine what it all looks like under construction and if that will affect much

I can't comment on the construction, but we stayed in SL in August and I requested a marina view in anticipation of the pool closure. We lucked out in that the closure was postponed, but we didn't hear any boats at all, and in fact found the marina side very quiet and peaceful.

I myself don't have any experience with this -- my online checkin was fine but I don't have split stay. With regard to requests, I had all my ADRs in place already and all that went fine.

Deluxe Room ?

Hello Everyone

We are officially going in late January staying Deluxe RPC

This is going to be our last trip for a long time...or at least says my husband

So...I am trying to make this a really great trip! We were originally booked in a Deluxe King...I was always worried about not getting the Turret style...because our desire is more space...so, as it worked out when the Room Discounts came out I couldn't apply it to my King ressie but I could change to the Deluxe RPC with Queen beds....

So, now my question is...Do I want to "request" the square or triangle shaped room? Which feels larger? Which are located in the "quietest" place?

Anyone stay in these rooms and have a room number they would request again?

And...one last question...does anyone know where to find a layout of the hotel (as far as where rooms are located...not the resort map...but one that shows, for example where 4022 is...does that make sense???)...it will help me figure out where to request a room...we don't want to be too close to the Concierge Club...I assume that is louder.

TIA,
Bridget
