Ah, that big gap between making ADR's and getting Mickey mail can be somewhat unbearable at times....

I made the mistake of not booking a preferred room and now it's not available for my dates. I am willing to pay for the upgrade if its available at check in. I would also love a corner room. Should I request both or just one? I'm not sure which I want more

If it is available, be advised you will most likely be paying full rack rate for the room.

Disney got pretty savvy regarding "requests" a few years ago at the moderates and turned them into booking categories. Preferred rooms book up pretty fast. I would suggest checking 44 days out from check-in, when people don't pay off their packages and cancel or reschedule. One may become available.

Corner room is a request that you can make.

And is there a late check out, we cant leave till early evening on the last day and were thinking of hanging out at the pool till its time to go, not sure if late check it available, if I have to pay, etc

I'm booked with free dining so I'm already paying rack rate technically. I'll keep on checking. Thanks!

You can do online check in by logging into the Disney website and go into My vacation.

They don't have luggage racks; there is a bench in the room where you could layout a suitcase.

There is late check-out available as long as there is availability; Housekeeping will have to let you know whether there is that day. I normally don't leave until around 5 pm, but I go ahead and check-out in the morning and hang around the pool every year. Your benefits are good until midnight of the day you check out, including the pool. They have lockers and changing areas, so you can change before you leave and don't have to pay the extra money.

Ah, that is going to be tough. Free dining; preferred buildings in AB for families of 5.

They book up very fast; since a family of 5 makes out great with free dining and those with young children like to be close to the food court and the pool.

Keep your fingers crossed that someone happens to cancel and you can snatch it up before someone else does.

I don't have free dining going too early in august. My question is about preferred rooms for a family of 5. We booked a preferred room at POR. You are saying they are in the Alligator Bayou section? Also are these the ones with the pull-down beds? And one more ?, if we arrive around 9 or 10PM will we get bumped from the preferred room? I will do online check-in.
Thanks!

I was booked in a preferred room. When I applied the free dining pin, they moved me out and into a royal room.

So don't feel bad that you didn't book it originally. =/

All four of the preferred buildings are in AB.

I would do online check-in and put in your arrival time and don't ask for any requests.

If we have 3 adults, a 7 year old and an infant are we considered a family of 4 or 5? We are traveling with another family of 5 who would be in AB. We requested connecting rooms so I hope we can at least be in the same building

So does that mean we can possibly be bumped?

Thanks!

You are considered a family of 4, until the infant turns 3. Then you are a family of 5.
