Does anyone know if you can book the room you want at AKL? I've been doing reserach on the rooms with the best views and have a good idea of exactly the block of rooms I want to stay in? If they let me book my room then I may just break down and reserve our stay today and then hope for discounts!!

My kids have always been grateful for any room that has taken them to Disney. Even if she did pout about a room for awhile, it will be LONG gone when you hit the park entry or see Mickey or something like that.

Only the room type can be reserved. I guess you could always specify a certain room # in a room request, but don't count too much on getting it.

You would think that if you call far enough in advance and are the first to request a particular room that they could honor it...but I'm sure logistically that might be a nightmare for them. I actually don't have an exact room request but a block of rooms I'd like to stay in...

I went ahead and made our reservations last night! I also did some math last night and it looks like either the RO or FD discount will be about the same for us.

I made the reservation at AKL and I'm really excited but I feel like I could get just as great a vacation at a moderate hotel and am questioning the cost of the current reservation vs. downgrading hotels. I've made a lot of TS ADRs with 3 of them being signature restaurants so I got the deluxe DDP and so I feel like I could make a choice on more moderate accomodations or food options...hmmmm....or keep it as it is and do a lot of saving before the end of January!

Joining in on the wait. We have a LM room booked at AOA from January 27-Feb. 3. Hoping for a discount but assuming there won't be one for AOA. Depending on what discounts are offered at the moderates we may change but probably not. We all really want to check out the new resort.

Within a specific block would be a bit easier than a specific room #. I'd ask, all they can say is no...

I gave up on waiting and called to book today. We are heading to the Poly for our anniversary!!!

The CM I talked to was a sweetie and said while there are no discounts for our dates (Jan. 15-19) WHEN they come out I can just call and add it then. I was very excited about the when, and not an if. Maybe I am reading too much into it, but a girl can hope!!!

Sounds like a fun trip!!! I think something will come out. I did the same thing as you and booked our trip and am waiting to see what the discount will be. The CM I spoke to did say that historically there's been offers but we'd have to wait and see. I'm hoping they have something out by Oct 1.
