We are SPG members, only the basic membership level, and have stayed at the Swan previously in 2010. We are also celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday and our 19th wedding anniversary!

We would really like a room on a high floor with a nice view, and would also love to be upgraded to a balcony room as we could do with a bit of extra space!

I have asked my travel agent to add these requests to my reservation, but should I email or telephone Starwood or the Swan directly to make sure my room requests have been added? Is there a specific telephone number or email address for this purpose?

Also, what are my chances of being upgraded for free to a room with a balcony?!

And also are there any specific nice views I could ask for?!

Many thanks for any advice.
When I changed my room rate last night I called this number which is the S/D number and asked for "on site reservations" then you are talking to someone in the hotel. I also wanted to be sure my requests were noted. Good luck!

Yes, by invitation at this time.

Enjoy your trip, and let us know how it works out with booking in the parks.

I think so. I'm at the Swan right now and I definitely saw the one at international gateway. I wasn't looking for them but the IG one is really obvious.

We got a map at check in last night. Every park has a S&D station. The AK station is at the far end of the park? MK and DHS are at the front of the park and Epcot is at the rear entry.

I saw something interesting this morning. They had a CM with an ipad helping people book FP+ at the bus stop. I was out there at 9 am. We didn't see him Friday when we were bussing to MK but we had breakfast ADRs and it was probably 7:15. So if they're doing it everyday maybe we were too early to see it. We're doing RD tomorrow at AK so I'll report back if I see him again.

That's a great idea. It saves time in the parks, and gives you something to do while you wait. Those Swan/Dolphin employees...what geniuses.

One of these years I'll go to WDW over Halloween!

I just bought my December plane ticket to Orlando, and I'll be back at the Swan!

I know there are classes that are available for this, but are there food booths set up as well? Is it like a mini Epcot F&W?

The food booths are up in the evening on the weekend and nibbles are from the Swan/Dolphin eateries with a variety of wines and beers. The Swan & Dolphin will put out a listing of items and seminars offered during the S/D Classic which will include times, etc.

I didn't see FP+ guy this morning. I was out there at 8:30 so maybe I was too early again or maybe it was something they don't do all the time.

I would be so extremely happy if they took FP+ reservations at the bus stop/boat launch. Or having a CM in the lobby in the morning. That would allow me to make FP+ for the evening park with my Hopper. PLEASE DO THIS!

I too will be there starting saturday and got invited to do FP+ because I had dining reservations only.

Once I linked park tickets I was able to make FP+ reservations.
