What room request: Yacht Club pool / lagoon view

I have an upcoming stay at the Yacht Club in a pool view / lagoon view room and am wondering whether I should request something specific for a room request.

Are the views pretty much the same for these rooms or would it be better to request a specific location for the view? Higher floor, lower floor? How about location relative to the front entrance and back entrance (for park access)?

Look at this picture. I circled the best area imo. Easy access to the quiet pool and laundry. And... you get the best view of the fireworks. Its been a couple years but I think the rooms are in the 50's I think we had 451 but really dont remember

A couple of years ago we got a free upgrade to a high floor, facing the water, almost all the way at the end of the building, and we loved it. We could even see some of Illuminations from out balcony, and could use the far outside exit to get out to the boats.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was originally thinking I might like to have a view out to the Boardwalk but a view of the fireworks would be good too.

I don't know how to circle where our room was, but if you look at the map, our room was close to that notch cut our of the corner, down the hall from where the "red heart" symbol is on the map. We had an amazing view of the Boardwalk and could see Illuminations everynight(higher fireworks) from our patio. We requested 1st foor, close to lobby and day bed. We got 1st floor and a day bed. We were far from the lobby and SAB. The patio was lovely and watching illuminations at night was great.
