It's not too late to make a request. The highest priority seems to go to the earliest reservations, but making a request in advance is certainly better than requesting a view while checking in.


These are all the 1 bedroom villas that face Paradise Pier and WOC. The second floor rooms will have a rather limited view.
Just clarifying if I can....earliest reservations or earliest requests?? When I initially made our reservation I simply asked for a WOC view if possible. Then later (just 2 or 3 weeks ago) after reading here that you could request specific rooms I sent an email to request specific villa numbers. I of course made the reservation promptly at 7 months....So do you think they will they look at the date I made the reservation with just "a WOC view" or the date I sent the email with the villa numbers?

This is a WONDERFUL thread, thank you SO much for helping me get ready for our 1st DL visit (and stay at GCV) this August! I have a question, though- when you all request a certain number villa, where do you email that to? What's the address? Thanks-

Ellen

I called the hotel directly, not knowing who I should have talked to, and the CM was very helpful, even telling me he knew a better room than the one I was asking for, and was able to tell me if anyone had requested certain rooms yet. We got the room he suggested!

I think Nonsuch means the earliest reservation, so if you booked right at 7 months you should be up pretty high on the queue.

Based on various posts in this thread, earlier reservations receive some priority for villa assignment.

Hi all - the information here has been amazing!

I put in a room request right when we booked at 7 months so hopefully we will get lucky. But even if we don't it will be an awesome trip!

Hello everyone! Back from our LAST 3 nights @ VGC - at least until 2015! Once again this tip DID NOT work for us . We were assigned room #4518 (only one floor above where we stayed back in August which was #5518) Funny how back when I made this ressie the 1st of 3 reservations that it was my LAST of three (ressie back in Jan.) was the ONLY one honored. Not sure but maybe because we didn't check in earlier than 5pm on Saturday thus EVERYONE else checking in earlier than that got their requests honored on spot as they checked in? Oh well! All we CAN do is just keep trying to put room # requests EVERYTIME! Still we had an AWESOME time!! Some friends stop by for a visit so we took them to the 6th floor observation deck for WOC (our 1st time there also) then as soon as we returned to our room the DL fireworks show was on which was very nice - just turn your head left from our balcony to see !! We also decide to use the BBQ for steak & kabobs!! Some strange & interesting comments while holding the platter of steaks while in the elevator but who cares!! We spent more time in our villa than in the park but so well worth our time cuz our last visit was 1 night & we did not really enjoy the room then! We also chose NOT to invite anyone to stay with us so my boys got to stretch out in their OWN room for a change! Our LAST time to use our DL AP's is coming up shortly & we shall MISS being in our own backyard for awhile but at least I will have the disboards to keep me in the DLR spirit until 2015!!! Hope everyone planning for the VGC has a GREAT time as we did!! NOW looking forward to WDW & BCV this coming Christmas!!

That might be part of it... we checked in at 6:30 am and got one of our top choices, so I would guess that your theory might be right.

I made our recent stays reservation 11 months out, made specific room requests, checked in at 7 am, and didn't have a room anywhere close to what we requested. So my experience was that the earlier made reservation didn't get any kind of priority.

But not as early as VGC owners who booked at like 10 or 11 months out.

Also, how do trash bags in unit work? Do we need to bring some? And toilet paper?

It's our first stay as owners.

Thanks!
