View Full Version : So other than smoking, what are your room preferences?

Not surprisingly, the last poll showed that an overwhelming (77%) first request for a room revolved around smoking or non-smoking.

Okay, so now that we have that out of the way.....what is highest priority request in a room other than smoking/non-smoking?

While thinking about this, it occurred to me that it would probably make a difference where one is staying. In other words, at BWV the most critical thing might be a Boardwalk view. At OKW, however, it might be first floor.

So, since you only get one vote, choose the DVC home you most often frequent and let us know what your most important request is.

My apologies in advance to HH, VB and BCV owners....only room for 10 options!

As always, comments are welcome. :)

Oh yeah, I forgot to give my own comment.

At VWL, I request a specific view (pool).

At BWV, I request proximity to elevator.

At OKW, I (will) request a specific area (near main building/pool).

Since you can only vote for one thing, you can put your other resort priorities in your comments.

Thanks....I think this will yield some interesting insights! :)

OKW - water view (not pool), close to the bus stop and quiet pool. this has worked very well for me. I use to ask for building 18 - but lately (it has been years) I haven't gotten it - so now I just request the view - this seems to work much better right now.

At BWV I request standard view - water view (or near the elevators - depends upon who is traveling with me).

At VWL (I learned the hard way) - request near the elevators or a pool view if possible.

Great post Granny,

You can learn a lot from these.

OKW- Building near HH (either 62 or 63 is great)
BWV- I agree with near the elevators.
VWL-floor level (I have never stayed here yet but I think I would rather have a balcony vs. a patio)

That's my 2 cents worth.

Well since you left out BCV, I can't vote so I will just put it here, I requested Top Floor, Epcot View.

And Terry S....sorry about BCV omission.

Frankly, I don't know enough about HH, VB and BCV to even know what the popular requests might be.

Anyone want to take a stab and do another poll on those three?

Class?

Anybody?

Class???

DH is visually impaired and not good in low light so WLV close to the elevators is a must, or we may not find him for the rest of the trip. He loves WLV but the hall lighting leaves alot to be desired!

I voted "Other"... we always have two requests (besides non-smoking):

Turtle Pond area
upper floor

We've used those requests for so long that we would never be able to find our room if it wasn't near Turtle Pond :)

We always ask for top floor no matter where we stay. Such light sleepers, we like to avoid walking and dropping thing noises from above.

We learned the hard way after listening to Pop Werner cheerleaders above us jumping on the beds while practicing there cheers. Yikes! was that a long night!

We have had only one trip home. We stayed at OKW and VWL(our home) at both we asked for non smoking (allergies) then asked for top floor.:)

I voted "floor level" because we are usually at BWV in a standard view and we find there is a better view of Illuminations on the upper floors, but if we do have a preferred view, then we request "Boardwalk view".
At OKW we usually request near the HH, as well as an upper floor.

Anyone else want to post their favorite requests?

Or are you keeping them secret so others don't make the same request! :D :D

My usual request at OKW, besides smoking preferance, is to not be on Miller's Road. There is nothing wrong with the units there, in fact the last time I stayed there I had a really nice view of turtle crawl...but - if I get Bldg 20, I always park at bldg 21 to avoid the bus turnaround and the parking for some of the new bldgs is not convenient.

At home (OKW) we request buildings 62 or 63 (near HH) because we like to let the kids walk. At VWL, we request top floor best view of Bay Lake - very, very, peaceful in the mornings for coffee or light reading on the balcony. At BCV, we've requested again top floor with EPCOT view (keeping fingers crossed).

Turtle Crawl is the area Or Boardwalk down by the main pool.

Tutrle Crawl is also a drink Served in the Gurgling Suitcase ( the Bar) and Oliviia's and it's real good.

So would Turtle Crawl's be buildings numbers 23-26? I'm trying to get a bearing for my next trip...

I was referring to the view of the boardwalk area near the main pool. I'd forgotten about the drink - they're good, too :D

E-mail me if you want me to e-mail you a photo of the view of turtle crawl from room 2020 (a 2nd floor studio)...Like a said before, there is nothing wrong with the rooms, but I'd try to park near bldg 21 and do a little walking, since there is a bus turnaround circle at bldg 20. Especially if you have a Caddy, Town Car, mini-van, SUV or other "long" car

Okay, with 82 votes in, it appears that:

For OKW, the most popular request is specific building or area. In a way, I guess that some of the "favorite view" can certainly be combined with that.

For BWV, the most popular request is a specific view. My guess, though we haven't had many comments here, is that the specific view most requested is of the Boardwalk itself?

For my home, VWL, the requests are evenly spread among floor level, proximity to elevator and view (of the pool, generally).

Thanks to everyone who voted and put their comments in. I found this to be informative, helpful and just plain interesting. :)
