Thanks Nonsuch! I've read a lot of your posts in the thread and have found your room recommendations invaluable in coming up with a list of which rooms to request!

Something to keep in mind for September, HM and Space Mtn are usually closed until around the third week to have their holiday overlays installed. If these rides are important to you, you may want to travel towards the end of September.
Thanks for the quick reply and the info!!

We booked a studio for 7 months out. However, we didn't request a room. We leave in 2 months. Should I call and try to request a room? Which studio do you recommend?

Had 5 choices on my list! He said "Oh your way ahead of me... We are not supposed to mention the exact room number but remenber I did not say it." I think he was joking but surprised I knew what I wanted & how to look for it! The room wasn't ready and the usual "will text you when ready" was the response. SO we drove back home (20 minutes) to wait to be texted! Really we did have to come back anyway to pick up my kid from band practice this afternoon!
There is a list somewhere of theme park view rooms? We're going for 4 nights in August (just in a studio tho) and that would be GREAT to get my hands on...is it in this thread somewhere?

Villas at Disney's Grand Californian - Room Views

This thread here should help those looking to figure out what rooms are where and with some pics of the views.

Yes, the information you seek is in this thread
Search this thread for "6504" which is included in all the lists of studios, since it has the best view

Oh my goodness! Thank you ALL sooo much!! So let me get this straight, VGC will take room requests for specific room numbers!? Holy smokes!! So you don't just ask for "theme park view"?! That's amazing!!

Although Disney will take specific room requests, they are still just requests and there are no guarantees. Making multiple room requests increases your chances.

And yes, all views are nice, unless you don't like looking at trees. The lower floors facing east, towards Grizzly Peak, don't really have a view. However, we found it very relaxing and loved listening to the sounds of birds singing long into the night. It felt like we were in the middle of the forest.

Ok, major daydreaming here, but...

Is it possible to get VGC for any time in December at the 7 month window? And

If so, is the slightly cheaper season (Dec 1-19) any easier than the expensive season (Dec 20-31)?

Thanks!
