I did the same during my online check in. I check in tomorrow. I'll let you know where we end up!!

I would call and request Jazz. It can't hurt and it might help.

So here's the deal. I had originally put a request on my reservation for Broadway and high floor. When I did online checkin, I chickened out and chose high floor, close to transportation. We are in broadway building 7, on the back side of the building no less. Honestly, it's a bit far. Could I get send to it, probably, but we're trying to see if we an move.

In fact, they just called and will be moving us to Jazz building 2 tomorrow. Very happy about this and glad they were able to accommodate us.

I stayed in the Broadway building in September (my first visit to WDW) and had requested a king bes but unfortunately we recieved two doubles (which, after a long day at the parks, was nice to sprawl out on alone) I noticed the room we had was kind of tired looking and was wondering if any of the rooms had been renovated? The pictures at the beginning of the thread showed a very different room than what we had. Regardless, I still loved it and can't wait until our trip in May! We'll never stay off property

There are very few king rooms so it's not easy to get one.

The rooms were reno'd a few years ago....maybe 5 at the most. All the values have had a makeover in the last couple of years. The rooms I have had there looked exactly like the pics on the first page.

yes....they have the small wall mounted ones. If you have thick hair you might want to bring your own. They are not very powerful.

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?

Renovations were done in 2008.

I know the TVs are LG, but does anyone know any specifics? Like if it's LCD or plasma, etc? The model? Thank you!

We are four adults.
and two of us are FEMALES...catch my drift....so we will need to at least hang up our shirts..
Has anyone done this for their clothes..?
Just got back last week and YES! there is a lot less space for clothes now. Not just the fridge, but the flat screen TVs took away half of the wardrobe.

You can get lots more hangers from Mousekeeping -- just call down from your room phone and they'll bring as many as you need. We also put our sweaters on the shelf above the rod but I'm thinking of bringing one of those folding clothes organizers that hangs off the rod for next time. It was just 2 of us this time and we needed all 3 drawers -- we'll let my husband come next time if we can figure out a place for his clothes

Tbh, I think every resort except for AoA could do with a re-do. Music and Sports are still the most recent total renos.

As for the sounds of water flushing, we have noticed this less at Music than at other disney resorts, especially Pop (that was very very loud). AoA was no worse than Music.

We did online check-in and got NONE of our requests -- totally opposite of what we asked for. Our room had already been assigned so it was hard to get it changed. Not sure I'll ever do it again, but it may have just been because we had a much shorter trip -- usually we're there at least a week and have always gotten everything we requested.
