Have you had issues with noise from people playing on the field while sleeping in all your trips?

How to do a room request?

We want to stay near Stadium Hall. Do I make the request when we show up at the hotel? We are going to be there next Monday and my wife and I were debating on when to ask and if doing the online check-in has any impact on the request. Any helpful advice is appreciated.

I'd call and request it ASAP. They'll tell you that they can't guarantee your room preferences, but they seem to really try to accommodate them. We requested adjoining rooms in a particular section when we made the reservations via phone and got what we'd asked for.

The Touchdown buildings are nice and close to the food court!

I don't think they are, but I'm asking anyway:

There aren't any sports groups or events scheduled the 3rd week of March is there? We'll be there the 20-23. I know that most sporting events flock to Sports first, the Movies. Don't think I would change anyway, but just curious. If there are, I can always request whichever building is the furthest away from everything. Thanks to anyone who knows.

I almost posted that I had no clue if any groups would be there but then I googled and found the following link http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/find/ You can see what sport groups will be there at WWoSports. It looks like on the 20th cheerleaders go home. HTH

How big are the fridges? And I know they aren't included in the room. I've already requested one for our stay. Only trying to hold 1/2 gallon milk, cream cheese, juice/water bottles, & lunch meat. Thanks for any help!

Fridges are not included in the cost of the room but you can get one for a fee. The ones I have seen are the small dorm fridges that would fit everything you mentioned except I am not sure about the 1/2 gallon of milk. I am thinking it would be too tall but maybe someone else can answer about the milk for sure.

Pretty accurate! I just got back and we had one for my insulin. They will fit a 1/2 gallon. You may just need to juggle things around inside. Mine was free b\c of medical purposes, but I think that they normally are about $15\day after taxes.

Thank-you so much for the link. I was considering sports until I looked at the Memorial Day Soccer Tournament where they all are staying at Sports. Please understand I have a select soccer DD and we have gone on plenty of these tournaments. I really want this trip to be NOT about soccer!!!! So it will be Music or Pop for us.

No problem. Guess when I am staying at the resort? I check in 5/27 a day before the soccer tournament. lol I didn't let it deter me since it is only for that weekend that I figured would be busy anyway and then slow down after. My DS has played soccer since he was little himself but around us there are none of these tournament teams.

Music has a wonderful activity program from 2pm till 9pm when they run a different disney movie each night if you choose to stay there. If you stay at music the drawback would be if you get on a bus full of the soccer kids although I think they will be pretty busy with their tournament. Then again at Pop the busses always seem to be packed when we stay there.
