I was there Feb 2 in Bldg 8 and it was not refurbished yet.

Even though I never changed my ticker to update we're leaving earlier, we are leaving the 12th and I can't believe that this time on Tues. we'll be 1/4 of the way there. So excited, DD knows we decided on a split stay, but DS doesn't, he will be so excited when we get there! They both play softball/baseball so I thought that section would be perfect for us, with hopefully a parking lot view so it may be quieter
You should call in your requests.

okey dokey so I called in my request, gonna keep my fingers crossed we get it, being we'll be a late check-in. Talking about check-ins, I asked the CM if I did the online check in if it would counter act my request...her response was she didn't see how it would being that the request is put into the computer! Hope she's right, cause I'm going to do it so that everything is ready when we get there, we will already be late so would like it to go nice and easy so we can go get some sleep!

Just back from a week at sports. There was 100's of cheerleaders there, but our room was quiet. We were in the football section, but thankfully not facing onto the football field. Once we shut our door, it was all quiet. We were in building 7 and there was a privacy curtain and new bedding, etc. The room was nice. I found the beds very comfy and longer than a normal double bed. We had a great trip and I'm sad to be home!

Whether you do online check-in or not has zero affect on your requests.

But it is worth the effort to put your request in...
You might just get it....

been back a couple days, wanted to tell you about our stay. We did not get our request of Homerun, was told at check in none available but it was because Building 8 is still being refurbed, we were upgraded though to Touchdown right next to food court, so really can't complain. Was worried about noise at first,but didn't hear to much. Some of the Twirl Mania was already there,but very well behaved! A soccer team was there as well, they played around that night til about 11,but nothing to bad, they were also well behaved.
Enjoyed the pool with DS, he wanted to go to the Grand Slam Pool which felt very warm,but then again it was chilly that day..
Kids also enjoyed the arcade...loved the icons,but we are sports lovers here
Overall a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again! have stayed at all All Stars now and would say this is our fav.

Should I do online check in, if I also have to pick up a grocery order, and a stroller? I don't want to be an extra burden to the check in CM's, if I should have just done a regular check in......

Online Check In is simply a way to speed up your process of check in. They basically have everything printed when you get there, so all you need to do is present ID and payment (for additional charges) and your ready to roll. It doesn't matter whether your picking up a grocery order and a stroller along the way.

Online check in is done at the check in desk which is not where you will get your groceries and stroller. You simply check in at the front desk then go back outside the door where the ME bus drops off and go to luggage services and ask for your groceries and stroller there. That is where they store everything. Well unless you sent yourself a package with the groceries then you go over to concierge and ask if they recieved it because mail is stored in the back there. So yes do online if you wish it will not slow down the process for anyone else or the CM at the front desk.
