I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Wrap your bottled water in a diaper or doggie pee pad before you put it into a ziploc. Then double or triple ziploc bag it. Usually what causes bottles to leak is the weight of other suitcases pressing down on it. So be sure that it's well padded in the center of your suitcase.

Just ask for a non poolside room. Even in Calypso it will be quiet. Also, the upper floors are quieter than the ground.

Ohhh what a clever idea! thank you soo much. My little boy is 4 now and potty trained but I do have half a pack of huggies diapers still in the closet I didnt throw away yet. I will def do that. I was going to ask, I know I have only payed for a standard room but if I had to request a room what would you guys reccommend to be the best rooms to ask for? Every time we have gone to Disney we have always ended up with a facing the car park room, to be honest Im wondering if they take requests saying "non car park please" lol... I can try right???

You could either call ahead and ask for a room with a 'view' or just wait until you get there. If you don't care what building you're in but just want a decent view wait until check in and explain what you want. Don't do the online check in as it makes it much harder to get a room request granted.

Yay! I booked our trip for August!

How far are the smoking areas away from the buildings? I was wondering if I should include "away from smoking areas" when I'm requesting a room or if it is a non-issue.

I don't want to smell it in my room or have to cross a smoking area to get to other areas of the resort.

I would like to know this too. I hadn't thought about this, but I should have. Thanks for thinking of it!!!

There are only 2 designated smoking areas. Imagine standing at the back of Melody Hall facing the guitar pool....one is immediately to your right, at the corner of the building and the other is straight ahead of you as far back as you can go on the property in between the Country Fair buildings.

So I don't think you will need to worry about making any request or smelling it in your room. That said, some smokers feel free to walk and smoke all over the place. So you will encounter it occasionally.

I stayed solo in a first floor Jazz room facing the central promenade for OMDD.I had no problem with noise.

We have a family suite and two preferred rooms booked for April so we'll be in Calypso. (Can't hear that name without thinking of Pirates of the Caribbean). There'll be 9 of us including 3 kids 4 and under so we wanted to be near the bus pick up point, Melody Hall food court, the guitar pool, and the laundry facilities!
