We stayed in bldg. 17 room 1733 for the first time in March. I had sent in a fax request asking for something close to everything, on the corner of the second floor. Suprisingly I received all my requests, and they actually upgraded us to a garden view (pixie dust) I loved this location close to everything, nice views and the little walk we had felt like you were in the bayou. Can't wait to go back!!

Glad it could help! Pretty awesome map for sure.

This is just my family's opinion, but we don't feel it is worth the extra $$ for a certain view when staying at a moderate. There are no balconies so to actually enjoy the view you have to have the blinds open. When in the room, we do not like having everyone that walks by be able to look into our room. If we want to relax and enjoy a view, we will sit out at one of the benches by the water or in one of the courtyards. Now the couple times we have stayed deluxe, it is definitely worth the extra $$ for a good view because we have a balcony to sit out on and enjoy. Again, just our opinion.

At a deluxe I'm willing to pay more for a view, but not at a moderate.

We loved our garden view last year, but I agree about the lushness of POR and that even a parking lot view isn't horrible.

My main concern is hearing slamming car doors, or cars starting, etc while we're trying to sleep. We spend so little time in our room relative to everything else at Disney that the view isn't super critical. (although building 28, which is all garden view, was very nice)...

ahh, decisions...
