Booked for Feb '13

We are a group of 6 (5 adults, 1 child) visiting the World in Feb for dd's 7th birthday. My mother and in-laws are joining us to celebrate. When I booked our trip through our Disney Vacation Specialist in October I asked for AB because we stayed there on our first trip back in '08. I also made 2 room requests:
1) first floor rooms
2) adjoining rooms

Then I started reading this thread...

About a week ago I called to request bldg 16 or 17 as well. I would like to be close to the main building but don't need to be close enough to pay the premium.
I also learned about connecting rooms. If you had a preference which would you choose adjoining vs connecting or would it matter?

How do my chances of getting these requests look? Of all of them I would prefer getting the closer building over the other two.

Any advice?
Thanks,
Cheryl

Sorry to pester you too Venomhatch, but would it be possible to also provide any tips to me a well? It would be so appreciated!!!

I called to add a general room location request after the initial booking (not sure where that's recorded), and was wondering if there is anything else I should follow-up on before online check-in?

I've never stayed at POR before...can't wait!!

The only time I found my ground floor room to be noisy when I was right off the quiet pool by Oak Manor. Other than that, I have been very pleased with my room locations in Acadian House and Parterre Place - all three times, I was at the end of a wing where no one would really walk by unless they happened to be in the room next door; the other direction was always more convenient.
Thanks

Venomhatch--- I promise I am not stalking you, lol, but we were both Pixie Dusted last year to the Poly after the RGR were not ready. Well, I'm going back, and finally booked my RGR at POR! I just had to giggle when I finally made my way over here to see that you were also going back... and staying at POR RGR.

Hi everybody! I visited POR last Princess half marathon with a friend and thought it was just lovely. Doing a split stay this trip with half at CSR and half at POR RGR. Can't wait!

You show up the day after I leave! I'll be at WDW from Feb 22-Feb 28 for the Princess.

I remember you because some gave you in particular a hard time for getting extra Pixie Dust. @@ Did you like the Poly?

The fact that people are saying they've stayed in numerous deluxe hotels and prefer POR over all others has me very, very excited for our July 2013 vacation.

I can tell you I took a deal one year with 2 friends to upgrade to SSR at a $200.00 savings. I thought, hey, it had all the same amentities and it was deluxe.

One night, we rode the water taxi to DTD. I cried and my traveling companions agreed they wished we had not changed. Se spent ech evening at POR.
