I've got to add another thanks to nonsuch and others who have provided room recommendations as well. We checked in for our first stay renting points yesterday and got 4506. Would have liked 5506 just a bit more, but I'm not complaining at all-- we have a FANTASTIC view and watched WoC from our balcony last night.

When do you check out? We're checking in on Friday with a request for 5506 or 4506 :-) We've stayed in both and enjoyed WoC from the balcony. In the summers when there are 3 shows, we are usually headed to bed by show #3 so we just leave the patio door cracked and listen to the music!

We were in 4506 last week! I LOVED our room...it was one of the several we requested. Our family loved watching WOC from our room.

Unfortunately we came down with a serious case of addonitis and have been put on the wait list for 150 more points with a December use year. We bought our first set of points last year and clearly it was not enough! For this 5 day trip, we needed to borrow points from this year.

I just want to thank everyone for all of the tips and hints that are posted! Bringing our own nonstick skillet was huge. Most important though, were the room information regarding views. We were thrilled!

When do you request? As far out as possible, or closer to your stay?

As far out as possible. I've been told by more than one CM at the resort (I know this is almost like a bus driver based rumor) that if there's more than one request the earlier one gets first dibs. This comment was made to me unsolicited twice when I got my foirst choice room each time, and the CM checking me in commented that I must have made the reservation a long time ago. I did, and made the room requests that same day with a call to MS (booked online).

Does anyone have pictures of the views from the 1 or 2BR villas facing WOC from the 3rd or 4th floor? Trying to figure out when the wall or trees start significantly obstructing your view of the lake. I'm particularly interested in 3522 which is right under the GV and 4508.

Thanks!
