At least she quickly updates her ticker for us - that helps. Have you done online check-in yet or are you skipping it?

I think all your frequent and rapid changes indicate that you just might possibly love it EVERYWHERE. So I don't take any offense to your changes - it's always exciting to read about why you've chosen your RotD (Resort of the Day)

Thank you! Sometimes I frustrate myself though

HRH has her RotD picked...it's a triple split....Pop/Poly/YC (poly snuck back in) She and I discussed that we would like to sneak SAB over to BWI

Feel free to ask any questions!
What type of room was this? studio? one br, two br???
Thanks

I decided to hold off on the online check-in, my room requests are important to me, I hope I am not making a mistake since we arrive on a Sunday which I have to assume is a busy check-in/out day.

I always skip online check-in. I don't think you'll regret it one bit. Where is your first ADR? Are you going to try Kouzzinas? I have a breakfast ADR there and the menu sounds great!

We have high hopes not to have any flight delays and be able to check out BRG
for lunch since no ADR's are necessary there. I do have a surprise ADR for 4:15 @ Marrakesh for DH, he has been wanting to eat there(because of the belly dancer) for years, personally he is a picky eater and I think it will be a waste of a dining credit, then later that evening I have a Cape May which I am a bit nervous about incase our flights cancelled due to weather and I will have to pay the $20 but I decided to take the chance.

We wanted to try Kouzzina on our last morning, only place we could fit it in but when JB changed our flight making it earlier by 55mins we decided to cancel it not worth rushing about our last morning. So we will do Belle Vue Lounge or Room Service

Hello Everyone!! I love this thread...its very imformative

I booked a trip at Boardwalk Inn Standard view room May 26th to June 7th. After much research and the help of this thread, i would like to request a room facing epcot to see illuminations preferably on a high floor. My fiance recently beat cancer and to celebrate we decided to go to disney world i want to make this trip as memorable as i can for him. i know nothing is garunteed but im going to try to get the room lol.

I wanted to ask:
Should i call the hotel to make the room request or call disney reservations? Also, should i also fax the requests to Boardwalk inn the day before i get there?
Does online check in affect my chances in getting the room requested?

Thanks everyone

Don't forget you can also try Boardwalk Bakery for breakfast.

DH has said it would be nice to just grab something from there and spend the morning on the boardwalk until we have to board ME so I guess it will depend on how the spirit moves us on the last morning.

****The above was a Quote from JDDS1119*****

I would love to hear thoughts on this too. I booked Standard view and we are going to be there for 11 days. I'd rather not be overlooking the parking lot the whole time . I did put a request in to be near the lobby and wonder if I should change it. I like the idea of contacting the hotel the day before if not a few days prior with requests.

TIA everyone!!

Upgrade?

I just booked for 3 nights for five of us in a standard room. What is the likelyhood of an upgrade to a Junior Suite on arrival?

Any requests you have should be made with a Cast Member who works at the Disney Reservations Center, because they will add them onto your reservation.

Now I haven't done online check-in but others say if your requests are important it's better not to use it.

There are no Junior Suites available at the Boardwalk Inn. Instead they have a Garden Suite which might be what you are thinking of. However I would say the odds of being upgraded to one is very slim since they don't have a lot of them. So if this something you like it's best to switch your reservations and reserve it.
