I am not trying to be a downer on this thread, but wanted to post some info from our trip earlier this month.

We had serious issues with the AC in our room (no air blew into secondary bedroom at all, plus no fan). It seems this is an occasional issue here. If this does happen, you need to override the air conditioning unit. It will either make the AC run non-stop (according to maintenance) or just override the motion sensor so it will keep cycling on/off while you are out of the unit (our experience and that of another poster here on the DIS). To do this, you need to press and hold the F/C button on the left side of the thermostat. Once "6P" appears in the digital display, the unit is on override. Whenever possible, leave the doors to the warm room open. It will help immensely.

I'm not trying to alarm anyone, just want you to know how to help the issue in case it does happen. FYI- they did offer to change our room but we declined bc I didn't want to repack/unpack again.

I don't think you are being a downer. Thanks for the info. Its good to hear they offered to move you though.

Just checked in..............was very easy. Stopped in about 2pm, they said our request for an Epcot view will be granted!! I wanted Bldg. 5, but we got Bldg. 4, it is very nice!! Great view.

I remembered a few people saying to when we got our parking pass to just say we didn't earn much money. It worked!! They didn't even ask for an appt. or seem interested in talking to us!!

Thanks for that tip - I will just have to check my group in by myself, no one would want to talk to me with my income!

I agree - you can only be prepared for what you know about, so thanks for letting us know how to prepare!

Glad that things went well for you at check in! So you were able to check in a few hours before 4 pm? (It really doesn't matter for us, since we will be at Clearwater the day of our check in and won't be getting to WBC until early evening.) Could you tell me what size and type of unit you rented? I am trying to decide what building/view we should request.

Hope that you are having a great time!

Has anyone ever booked through the RCI timeshare exchange? I am wondering how rooms are assigned when you book that way. Is it possible to call the resort to request a room with a fireworks view?

We are planning to go in April next year. We have enough points to reserve a 2-bedroom unit.

1 of my 2 stays was booked through RCI. We just call WBC directly and let them know our requests, that simple. Don't want to jinx it be we are 2/2 on our requests!
