It's possible, but the more specific you make your request the less likely they will able to accommodate it. If, for example, you request room 1000 (made up number) because it is next to the pool and on the first floor, the chance is very slim that room 1000 specifically will be available and you'll just get put wherever.

If, on the other hand, you request a first floor room overlooking the pool, then there is a better chance of getting what you want because there likely are several rooms that fit the criteria.
Spring 1976, WDW/Golf Resort; Spring 2000, WDW/CBR; Summer 2002, WDW/CBR; Thanksgiving 2003, Disney Wonder & WDW/CBR; Fall 2004, WDW/POFQ; Spring Break 2005, Disney Magic W.

It is not like booking a cabin on a cruise ship.

If you request a specific room, the room assigner will overlook your request because they don't know why you picked that room.

Best as PP stated, request in order of importance, your requests. Keep them simple.
