Go to the POR thread there is lots of info there about best rooms for your needs and advice about making room requests. Sorry don't know how to link it.

Are being in the mansions more important or being close to the main building/pool? Of course, preferred rooms are closest to the main building/pool so you may not end up as close to them as you want.

If being in the mansions is most important, I would just request Magnolia Bend and leave it at that. The mansions have half the standard room inventory they once did with the addition of the Royal Rooms taking over two of the four mansion buildings. And FWIW, if you do get in Magnolia Bend, you will be in Magnolia Terrace or Acadian House - both of which are equal distance to the main pool and main building, and not a far walk. Just across the bridge to the pool and across the bridge and around the path to the main building.

I would request - location close to Old Man Island Bridge. This will put you very close to main pool and building. And close to the quiet pool between Acadian House & Magnolia Terrace. The bus stops are right across the parking lot behind either building too. We prefer these bus depots more then the very busy Main Bus Depot.
Check out the map on page 1 of POR thread and you'll see what I mean.
