Other than mistakes, there are 3 reasons you might not get what you reserved and paid for:
  • some type of maintenance problem that prevents the room from being occupied by guests
  • previous guest stays beyond their established reservation but continues to pay for the room (they can't be thrown out as long as they pay)
  • another guest who had some sort of inconvenience or problem may be upgraded to a theme park view room as a method of what Disney calls "guest recovery," meaning their way of smoothing things over to make a problem go away

In any of the above situations, your pre-assigned room may not be available for you ... as I said, it isn't yours until you show up, and it can be given away or be rendered unavailable at any point prior to that.
If they can give your room to someone who just doesn't want to leave what is to prevent someone who wants,say,a week and are told they can't have it because Wednesday on is taken.Couldn't they take Monday and Tuesday and just not leave and therefore get the week they wanted in the first place? It seems if they want to "stay beyond their established reservation" at CR they should be the ones to get another room in the CR.

I certainly hear you, and I really understand. But, I had a very unusual circumstance at PORFQ in 2010. While I was there we got over 3' of snow back in Baltimore. It was just me & my BF & I was pregnant and frequently sick to my stomach. It was superbowl weekend and they were overbooked. All the flights home were cancelled. I begged for almost 2hrs to keep my room for 1 more night and finally convinced them that evicting a pregnant lady from the resort was not very Disney. I'm so sorry for whoever got bumped (I hope they got bumped up. I heard they were transferring some overbooked guests to one of the larger DVC properties.) But, I really couldn't do anything else. I now try to see things differently when I am inconvenienced. Maybe (I know not always) that other person or family has needs greater than mine at the moment. Probably not, but that's what I try to remember when these things happen.

Does anyone have any pics of the room views from the CR TPV rooms they can share/post? Or, can anyone point me in the direction where some are? Thanks

Now "That" I could understand.

Thanks! I saw that but I wasn't 100% sure that was a view from a room. Awesome!

SM is closer to the hotel than the castle, so it's always going to seem like a bigger part of the view.

We're thinking of staying in on arrival night (next Wednesday) and getting private dining instead of going to Artist Point.

Has anyone had anything delish from Private Dining or have a current menu besides what I've found on AE?

Thanks!

In my opinion there really isn't any room that's closer to Cinderella's Castle vs Space Mountain. I have had a Theme Park View located in different areas and in my opinion the view looked exactly the same, so I dodn't think we were closer to one and farther away from the other.
