I wish one of the Manors were preferred.
Actually this isn't correct. Families of 4 and under are generally booked into Manor rooms. Resort booking likes to reserve standard AB rooms for families of 5. The OP was asking specifically about standard RRs. These face away from the river, and often are parking lot views. They are quite a long trek to the main buildings, ESPECIALLY Parterre Place. You would have to get a RR with a river view in Oak Manor to meet your specifications. And there is no way to guarantee that particular building.
