This past year we went to disney and stayed at the beach club villas. We had a reservation and my brother had one as well. We contacted member services and had them link the reservations in an attempt to get us close together. We checked in on a Saturday and my brother checked in on a Monday. We had low expectations regarding room placement but hoped for the best. To our surprise, our villas were right next to each other and we had an amazing time. I know that this is completely dependent on the scheduling but the bottom line is...link your reservations (using confirm numbers and member numbers) and you could be placed in close proximity to each other. We were fortunate... I wish you luck!

My experience with this had not been good at WDW. We have a number of times and at different resorts been placed on different floors, at OKW different buildings in the Turtle Pond area that were not even close.
Our successful experience was this summer at VGC, two one bedroom villas just a few doors apart. Made it easier to hang out and enjoy time together.

Guess we were in the lucky group in that both times we requested two rooms close together they were both in the same building at OKW. I have found the room assigners at OKW to be most helpful. One time we had a split stay and when I mentioned to the front desk clerk that we would be back in a few days to check in again and that I really hoped to get building 55 (my favorite - also the one that my deed says I own a tiny portion of) she got the woman to come out and talk to me. Yep we got exactly the unit I was hoping for. I know that is the exception but it sure made for some special pixie dust feeling. I certainly never expected to talk with the room assigner and would never ask outright for that. The only other time I spoke with someone who assigns rooms was when they told us our room was ready and in fact the housekeeper was just going into the room to clean it when we got there. I asked if they had anything that was ready and the CM really tried to find one that met my requests and when I told her the only one I really cared about was near a pool she found us a unit in bldg 46. I am sure it had to do with it not being a busy time and there being no one else in the check in lines at that time.
As others have said make it your only request and you stand a better chance of getting it.

With the size of VGC, that shouldn't be difficult.

I have found it hit or miss no matter where we have stayed. Sometimes they can accomodate, sometimes not. This past August OKW had us 5 buildings apart.....but then upon check in at Vero we had connecting rooms (we didn't ask for that) so I have to lean toward the idea that it is whatever is available.

This HAS worked for us since they've had this designation.

Just got back last weekend from SSR. Had three studios booked and put in a "Travel With" note on all three reservations. DW and I arrived first of the three families, I was able to check-in for all three rooms at the same time, all were in the same building, same floor, and all were available for check-in at 09:15.

Thanks again for all of the replies!

comp_op_2000 - just wondering - was your name on all of the rooms? Asking because of my earlier question - regarding checking into our own unit as well as the unit my two twentysomething (late in the day arriving) kids will be staying in.
The one answer I got to my earlier question about this said that if my name isn't on the room - then I can't check into it. Right now I have myself, my sister, and my husband in one unit (we arrive mid morning) and my two kids (arriving close to midnight) in the other - because that's where we'll actually be staying. I really want to check into both units when I arrive so that the kids can just go right to their space and crash when they arrive - we have an early day planned the next day.
I haven't heard good stories about people trying to change names on reservations - so I'd rather not make any changes if I don't have to, but also don't want to be waiting until midnight to check them in.
Any insight you have would be great!
Thanks!

No my name was not on all the reservations. I am the member who booked all the rooms with my points, placed the "Travel With" note on all the reservations, informed the check-in CM of what I wanted to do from the first moment, and it turned out to not be a problem. I did online check-in with two of the reservations and one without due to one family not wanting to put a credit card on their room.
