Suggest that you call Disney and have your requests added to your reservations (unless you booked thru a travel agent, then they can add your requests). Make sure the 2 room reservations are linked (if you have not already done so).

Regarding Faxes, from the FAQ thread...Disney no longer encourages room requests via fax. However, there has been a fluctuation on this issue throughout the resorts. If you would like to send a fax, please keep in mind to do so no sooner than 10 days prior to arrival or later than 4 days prior to arrival

We personally do not fax requests, electing instead to add our requests at booking or afterwards. With the addition of the online check in (when guests can make requests), Disney is streamlining the check in process, and in my opinion discouraging faxes. But do what you feel comfortable.

We had a TS at BoG in January and we loved it!! We were seated in the West Wing, which was kind of nice (even though the room is dark) -- smaller room, less hectic than the main room (and agree the servers do zip around fast!)

We passed up lunch there, the line seemed very long... but i wonder if it would of moved quickly?? Oh well next time... I'll keep your pork meal recommendation filed away.

Did you.... Try the grey stuff, it's delicious, Don't believe me? Ask the dishes!! BTW, the grey stuff très delicious!!!

Need to lock up laptop

We've got a laptop bigger than what will fit in the safe. Can anyone tell me if there's something non-movable in the room that I could loop about 4' of lock cable through/around/etc. to secure our laptop in the room? For instance, at work, it's looped around the countertop in my cubicle (there's a small gap between the back of the counter and the cube wall so it fits).

Obviously it won't keep it from turning on, so we'll password-protect it, but we're hoping the cable will work to make sure it doesn't go astray.

Thanks!
Sheri

We ate in the same room...preferred it over the rest,,loved the darkness and quiet...
The lunch line was over the bridge but moved quickly,,,got into the building and at the ordering kiosk within 20 minutes....worth the wait.
We did NOT try the grey stuff!...I forgot to order it...NEXT time!!! Thanx!

Your sons will enjoy it...Talking/snoring/ suits of armour in the Queue.....and go at lunch for sure...they get to input their own meals at the kiosk before entering your choice of 3 dining areas....Serve yourself drink area with refills also.....Loved the braised pork....Don't get the Pommes Frites (just ordinary cold french fries) Get it with the Mashed Potatoes!!
SORRY,,,THIS SHOULD BE POSTED ON THE DINING THREAD!!!!!! YOU CAN MOVE ME OVER IF YOU WANT!!!

I'm trying to picture what in the room would be suitable for a laptop lock and the only thing I can think of now is that the "closet" shelf is the coated metal style with arms attaching it to the wall. You may be able to loop the cable through part of the openings of the shelf. Otherwise I am not thinking of what else would be non-movable.

Good idea jcarwash

Coaliesquirrel ....how big is your laptop? My laptop fit and its roughly 13". Here's a safe picture from the Allears site, and it states that it is a 15" laptop inside and there is extra room.

You're welcome! One of the ladies on the trip was celebrating her Birthday and she rec'd the "grey" stuff gratis. So we all took a little taste.

Hopefully we get to eat lunch at BoG on our next visit.

<the only thing I can think of now is that the "closet" shelf is the coated metal style with arms attaching it to the wall.>

This will be PERFECT! Thanks so much - this solves a BIG BIG problem, as while I could take my work laptop instead (which would fit the safe), we wouldn't be able to offload our photos to it - which was making me *extremely* nervous that something would get lost/deleted! I trust that the Mouskeeping staff will take great care of us, but just want to secure it on the off chance someone else would need to be in the room for a repair, or someone would sneak in from the outside when the door's ajar during cleaning.
