They don't. That's why "GTD" is computer-generated, while information stating that things like connecting rooms are not guaranteed is stated on the Disney website and on the paper they consistently reorder and use for reservation confirmations.

Well, based on experience, at least one person in this thread would be within their rights to warn, "Don't book a preferred room at a Value because you won't get it - and they'll argue about refunding the extra money you paid!"
I don't need to explain anything to anyone that didn't get to book 2 connecting guaranteed rooms. On this same thread there is a DISer who had it booked correctly and got what was guaranteed to them. Another poster on this thread is someone who has stated they are (or were) a resort CM and has stated that there are reasons that rooms are guaranteed without listing the details.

I have no doubt that CMs guarantee rooms that shouldn't be, don't guarantee rooms that should, and even that sometimes people that are under policy guaranteed connections don't get them for one reason or another. How many threads with a question are there on the board and no matter what the policy/answer is there are at least 4 people that pop in, 'that's not true, I was able to do the exact opposite.'

No matter what situation you have there will always be people that had the opposite experience. Always. Whether it's right or wrong, against policy or agreeing with it. Always.

They are always going to have a clause to cover themselves for the few times they need to because yes, it CAN happen... anything CAN happen under the right circumstances.
