What and when can I expect to get more info. We are staying in a 2 br pres, and owner says he does not have room # yet. From info I have on these boards, I was under the impression that with presidential units the room is assigned at booking. Can anyone clear this up for me. Thanks.
You don't need anything else. You can call, or have the person your are renting from make a request for a location, but as a renter, nothing is guaranteed other than a 2BR Presidential. All of those are in Tower 6, whiich is a great location. Enjoy your trip!

There is wired internet in the room. You just plug the cable into your laptop.

You may be able to pick up a wireless signal at some places in the resort. I was able to get wireless in tower 6 in our room on the 4th floor.

If you really need wireless, bring a wireless router with you. You can get them for $20.

Second the internet - using the wired connection now!

The wifi in our room connected but was almost non-existent.

We plan on getting our park tickets through AAA at this point, but I've heard the Disney booth at the resort offers a discount as well? Does anyone know what their prices for tickets are and if their discount is more than AAAs? AAA offers 10% off.

We have 3 condos booked for late July and just called for my 30 day free uprade and was told nothing was available. I guess I'm a little disappointed because I have never gotten the free upgrade. We bought before it was actually built and have stayed several times. Have any of you had any luck with the free upgrade to a larger room. Not that we actually need it but it would be nice to have just one more bed.

I asked if we were still assigned to the rooms that were given to me at the time of booking 13 months ago and she said yes. She said the only way we won't have those rooms is if something is wrong with the room maintenance so I am going on the assumption that our 3 condos will still be same floor, same building and close to each other.

I can't speak to any possible discount at WBC, but what about Undercover Tourist using the Mousesavers link? Have you compared their prices to AAA?
