On Line Check in Question

If I check in on line, will I still be able to request a specific room when I get to the resort? I know I may not get my request, but if I check in on line, do the rooms get assigned right then and there?

Leaving Monday AM, bright and early... , and I want to be ready to go when we get there.

If I have the info on my DM and DS and family, can I check in for them online, too?

I just did this and I did not get to repeat my room request online. I did, however, call POLY and re-confirm my request with them. They told me I would not know until my check in day if my request had been met. They said due to people staying longer than expected, unforeseen maintenance issues, etc., they were unable to confirm the request ahead of time. Crossing my fingers for you and me that we get our requests!

All our requests were in the ressie and we got them all - higher floor,connecting rooms and a frig at ASSp. When we arrived there were about 30 people at the regular check in counter and only one couple ahead of us at on line check in.

Is there a limit of characters to key on the room request online?

Since online check-in generates all your resort paperwork so it's waiting for you when you approach the designated online check-in counter and is designed to save you time - checking in online then requesting a specific room* on arrival pretty much wipes out any time savings.

*Not that it's particularly advisable to ask for a certain room - what back-up plan do you have when that room's occupied?
