one other thing -- we've walked the resort a lot of times. Country seems the furthest away from Melody Hall, but it really isn't any further than Rock or Broadway -- you're just still walking in a straight line. The rooms in Country are further from the parking lots than most of the other rooms though.

But we have yet to stay in Country -- we're almost always in Jazz.

Broadway is awesome -- the lights at night make it really special (and for you that will be any time after 6 pm or so)

I didn't make any requests but I'm hoping for Broadway! The last time I stayed there (which was probably about 10 years ago) we had stayed in Broadway and I loved it! But then again the whole resort was so fun!

You should request it if you want it -- you'll probably get it!! Most people request something closer to Melody Hall. I always make at least one room request -- I usually get everything I requested (but getting a first floor room is the top one on my list).

Why first floor, if I may ask? I asked for a top floor. I had read that they may be quieter...

Oh it doesn't really matter that much, I'll just be extra happy if I get it. If not, I can always walk over to it. I don't spend much time at the resort anyway (hence why I go value every time)

Are there any King bed rooms in non preferred buildings? Would love one in Country Fair or Broadway for the quiet.

I believe so but King bed rooms do not have a tub and go to guests with disabilities first because they have bathrooms that can accommodate wheelchairs.

We don't find it quieter on the upper floors in Music -- the first floor has a concrete walkway, and the upper floors have a balcony. The only people who walk past your room are people on their way to their own rooms on that level since there are many other/better walkways to use to get around the resort. Plus all of the room doors are exterior doors, so in either case you don't hear much from the outside (unlike hotel corridors).

I travel with people (especially my DH) who tend to get lost very easily -- funny how adding a staircase can get him totally messed up and off course This trip it's just me and my DD, so although she's old enough to go from our room to the pool, arcade or food court on her own, it makes me feel safer if she had a more direct path.

And it takes less time to get to and from your room, so you have more time for fun

Rats!!! now everyone will want a first floor room

Never wanted a first floor room in Flkrida... Seen too many people leave the slider open and leave or prop their door open and have all the crawlies sneak in.. We always stay 2nd on up!

We will be in a family suite and if I understand correctly, that means Calypso or Jazz buildings.

Does anyone prefer one over the other?

We have stayed in both and they are equal in size and decor. Calypso is closer to Melody Hall (food, drinks, check-in, etc) which means you are closer to the bus stops.

Here is a map of the resort:

We had a king bed preferred room last February and had a tub. I think some have tubs and some don't.

We also have a king bed request in for our trip next month, and are staying standard this time, so I assume the standard rooms do have king beds available.

You are right some King rooms have handicap showers some don't. Yes standard rooms do have king beds as well.


I also wanted to add that the pictures of the room posted are the pictures of a handicap room and not a regular one. You can tell because there is a sliding door on the bathroom, closet in corner of room, half table and the TV stand is more shallow. It might help if someone has regular room photos to post. I know it is a lot of work to put together a resort thread so I am not complaining but I know how some people expect what they see.
