Took a stroll this morning and saw that all the windows on the second and third floors of Building 7 are decorated with building permits. And people are still in rooms on the first floor. There has been a lot of security walking around. Is this normal? I found Rm 7116 but with security there I wasn't about to plaster my face to the window. Haven't talked to anyone.

We are checking in Dec 19, too. I requested close building to lobby because of mom needing a wheelchair. Maybe we can come visit you guys if you get in the new rooms!

Room request

We will be going to Disney and POFQ in January for 9 nights. Love all the info on these boards..and for a first timer it is invaluable!

My original room request said if possible 3rd floor bldg. 5. Now with the upgrades happening I think regardless of location I would love one of those rooms..if possible as I know requests are just those and there are no guarantees. Should I change it on the reservation now or wait and fax a few days before we arrive with the change?

Thanks again!!

Just call a couple of days in advance and reiterate your request; faxes are rarely looked at anymore as reported by some of the CM's.

The refurbs take some time and aren't expected to be completed until April - your chance of getting a refurb room may be about 50/50 in January.

Remember, everyone else will be asking for the same thing.

Good point!

Same thing has happened over the years about people talking about how great it is to go the week after Thanksgiving - everyone finally caught on. Drats.

I was amazed when talking to some people that I thought were Disney "experts". They actually knew so little because they didn't come to websites like this one. So, you might be surprised.

Subbing, if for no other reason than I am dying to see what these new rooms look like.
