A regular 2bdrm unit contains a king bed in the master bedroom, 2 doubles/queens in the 2nd bedroom, and a pull out couch.

Since you know the makeup of your group, You can probably figure it out from there.

Our group consists of my husband and myself, my oldest son (32) and his girlfriend, my daughter and her husband, my youngest son (20) and my granddaughter (7). I'm thinking My husband/I and the granddaughter sharing the king bed, my youngest son and daughter/husband sharing the 2nd bedroom, and my son/girlfriend taking the couch bed, as she has trouble sleeping?

We will be checking in next month for the first time. We have a 2 bedroom presidential. I need some guidance with a room request. We really would like a firework view and view of Spaceship Earth and/or castle. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Anyone know the status of the WiFi installation in all the towers? I'm hoping for tower 5.

When I called the resort this week, they said the towers were completed 3 days earlier. I'm hoping there is confirmation here soon from people at the resort before I go out and buy a router.

My understanding is all 2BR, and 3BR presidential suites are located in Tower 6 only. In Tower 6, there are no fireworks views unless you are on like the 19th floor (Presidential Reserve). Your view of Epcot is blocked by Tower 5 from this spot.

I wouldn't downgrade the room for the view though. Presidential suites are super nice. I'll be in mine in about a week!

Yes....hopefully someone can confirm this week. I've already bought a router but it was only $15 so no big deal. I would much prefer to not pack it....I'm bring enough already.

Just wondering what the difference between a regular 2-bed and presedential 2-bed is? We've booked a 2 bed (for 2A, 2C) but wonder if we should upgrade as we got such a great deal by staying here.

a TAD more square footage (not a whole lot), upgraded stainless appliances and upgraded furnishings, the couch is not a pull out in the presidential units, granite countertops, and hardwood floors.


Basically, the primary differences are the presidential units have a bit more fancy/expensive decor, and they are all located in tower 6.

Here now, we checked in today. This is our second stay. We are in tower 4 for the second time. In fact, we are one floor above the same room we were in last year. We are facing the parking lot. Last year were on the first floor, which wasn't the greatest because our patio had no view at all, it was completely covered by shrubs and plants. It felt a bit cavelike with no view out the patio door. This year we are on the second floor. Not much better. My question for you Bonnet Creek frequent fliers...Do you request a certain building /floor? I requested a higher floor -in any tower but got 2nd floor parking lot view. How can I get a nice view???Is it just luck? We are planning on staying here again in October.
TIA

At Spring Break I requested tower 5, fireworks view. She told me she had a room ready for me but if I wanted to wait, she would see what she could do. So, we busied ourselves in the parks for a few hours and they called when the room was ready. We got our request but I don't know if it would be possible everytime. Since I was willing to wait, I think she could make it happen. This may not always be the case. We always check in early. This may better our chances.
