Guess I'll add Full Balcony to my YC room request

I think its 50-50 at the beach club. there are alot of lagoon rooms
that do not have full balconies..
your best shot of getting a full balcony is to request the quiet pool area.
all of the rooms there are full balconies however its not the greatest
lagoon view

2 weeks! I check-in in 2 weeks!!! And I get to go pick up my Mickey Mail from mt TA today

So now my questions - we do have a request attached to our room so would it be better for us to check in when we get there or should we check in on-line?

I've not done check-in on-line before (or made a room request before) so I'm not sure if it's more likely to get our request if we talk to someone at the check-in desk

Boston Whaler Montauk Rental, August 2012
Boats are so much fun rented one back in December 2010 and it was in front of the Magic Kingdom with the monorails above that made it magical.

The only things left to pack are those last minute things - the stuff we use every day.

Hubby is doing laundry today since he has the day off. I'll do any dishes tonight and then tomorrow we'll be eating off paper plates and using red solo cups and emptying the trash before we go to bed. I need to drop off the rent check tonight.

We also have a list on the front door to check off before we walk out on Saturday morning - things like unplug appliances, close all the windows (especially important since hurricane Sandy is heading our way)...

I wish I was... but I have a wedding tomorrow I'm part of that has been taking up all my free time this week and last week I was sick. Luckily I only need to pack for me so I hope to be able to start this weekend.

I have been plotting what to bring though.

OK, that's good to know. Guess my safest best is to go YC for lagoon full balcony? Anybody know how high the percentage of that would be, approximately? Near 100? :-)

BC room near villas

I am staying in a one bedroom villa and my friend is staying in a standard room. What area should she request to be closest to the villas?

I booked the villa on a bounce back. Didn't realize there was only 1 bathroom. Still trying to get a 2 bedroom with a bounceback or AP discount. Not likely, but hoping. Going Dec 9-15. Can't wait. I am sure we will have a blast.

For your friend I would put "closest to the villas WALKWAY".

This would give them the idea to put you right there so you can get to each others rooms faster.

Please remember that requests are simply that, requests and they are not guaranteed by the resort. I'm not sure if you could put a request like that in for your Villa location. From what I've read, Villa assignments are fickle at best but it couldn't hurt to let them know what you are hoping for.

Good luck and have a great trip! I'll see you in Storm Along Bay, the lazy river section, third inner tube from the left. I'll be wearing my itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, polka dot bikini and hiding from my husband and 3 teens.

We were in BC and friend was in Villas, really it wasn't a problem. I was near the elevator that goes down to lobby outside the Marketplace, so we usually arranged to meet in front of Marketplace in the mornings, or the lobby.
