Thanks for all the great info, now to plan on which area to request. Have people found that most requests are granted?
Congrats! We will be there Feb 15 and 16 too!

MinnieGirl33 has posted a thread indicating she is staying in a 1BR, standard view room number 7135. She has some nice pics of her view. Here's the link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post33531918

how to make a request

I have never made a room or floor special request when we have stayed at DVC, how do you go about doing this? Realizing that nothing is guaranteed, but I would like to give it a shot, after seeing some of the great views people have had.

I think this thread is cool but am I the only person who is NOT planning to request anything for my upcoming stays? What I want the most is my room to be ready when ME gets me there, which is hopefully sometime before 4PM...

Just call MS and ask the CM to add your request to your reservation. It's best to make the reqeust as general as you can (such as upper floor, near elevators, etc.) rather than ask for something specific (like Room 7304).

Wonderful chart!

Question...I just booked 9 nights for next April, a GV with a MK view.

According to the chart, does that mean I am locked in to one of 6 rooms?
(8416, 8420, 8422, 8424, 8426, 8430)

And if THAT'S true, can I assume that the views of the MK from any of these villas are pretty much the same? Should I bother requesting one room over the other?

Obviously I'd prefer the best MK view as possible but don't want to go through the trouble and request it if it's really not necessary.

Thanks!

The views should be relatively similar, but people have reported (from lower floors) the MK views in the 16-22 range have a straight ahead view of MK.

So...in YOUR room, when you were on the balcony, was there something below near the parking lot (I thought i read that there was either a dumpster..an A/C unit..something like that)?
Thanks!
yep. not so much noticeable view-wise, but i am an early riser by habit and the noise was fairly noticeable from sort of equipment near the magic kingdom. of course, in that respect i am spoiled because we usually stay at boardwalk and request a quiet pool/garden view. last spring we overlooked the croquet ground and the canal, and there was nobody up but me and the ducks at that time of day. The view from our balcony at BLT was wonderful. i would definitely recommend the 10's.

In looking at possible rooms to request for our SV dedicated 2br, I think I found an error in the map notations. In the "actual reported views" you have room xx16 on the 3rd floor marked as SV. But in the reported views listing, you don't list 7316. You do, however, list 7216 as a SV. Do you know which is correct?

It seems like either would be a good room to request if I didn't want 1st floor and I wanted even a chance of an MK view.

I checked back through my notes and I believe the reported views map should have shown 7216. I updated the map.

I'm not sure if there is a BLT room that has views of BOTH MK fireworks AND Epcot fireworks. However there are rooms that are on BLT's south crescent that have views of Epcot. For example, see fla4fun's earlier post:

It was a great view. I had specifically requested an upper floor marina view, and that's what I received.
