I've got a standard view Royal Room booked. Other than requesting Oak Manor, which I already have, is there anything else I should request? I'd like to be close to the main building if possible - will that work with standard view? Are there any corner standard view rooms?

Thanks.

I do miss a good fry up !!!



[QUOTE=andrewilley;46837230]It's a fairly lean, thinly-sliced piece of gammon ham (also referred to as 'back bacon'), usually grilled or fried until the meat is cooked through and the fatty edge is just starting to turn crispy. The meat is not charcoaled to within an inch of its existence, which seems to be the aim in the US. See http://www.thegreatbritishdiet.co.uk...les/Bacon.html.



What the Americans serve is generally regarded as "streaky bacon", and while a few Brits do like it, most regard is as a distinctly cheap and vastly inferior over-fatty cut.

A proper full (OK, very full) British Breakfast would be something like this, from http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/c...ast-alone.html:

With a standard room you most likely will be on the back side facing the parking lot.

Hi everyone,

We just booked for a few weeks from now and were only able to get a garden room, where we have only stayed preferred before. Can anyone recommend some good locations in AB for a lot of tired, small feet? Thanks!

Playing Devil's Advocate for a moment here, it's possible that someone else saw your phone while housekeeping were working on your room and nipped in and grabbed it (I've seen housekeepers prop doors open while they go back and forth carrying stuff from their cleaning cart, and I think it would not be too hard to snatch something while the maid was cleaning the bathroom for example). Then, when the phone was found to be locked it was simply thrown away in haste by the opportunist. However there's always the other possibility that you imply, which is much less palatable.

Andre[/QUOTE]

It's possible, I did leave it on the bed closest to the door. However, I don't think it is likely given how quiet it was near our room. I can't even recall seeing anyone pass by our room in the 6 nights we stayed so I don't think it is likely. Also, from what we saw when the rooms were being cleaned the doors were closed. Dh actually noted to me the day after my phone went missing because when we came back from breakfast our room door was closed but housekeeping was in there. He thought it was odd because on our cruise vacations the doors were always open when housekeeping was cleaning.

To be honest I don't even care what happened. When you leave a iphone which can be worth $400 retail, out someone may be tempted to pick it up and walk away with it. It was stupidity on my part leaving it. I really posted this for two reasons.

1. I just wanted readers to know that even though it's Disney things can happen, it's best to check the room before you leave and make sure valuables are locked up or taken with you.

2. Password protecting electronics may make them less desirable for someone to steal.

If something does go missing from your room check with lost and found immediately because it still may have been turned in.

iPhones have a apple ID that can track its where abouts all the time you should contact your carrier and see where they last pinged the phone from. Then contact the authorities and advise them of the situation.

Sorry Andre this will be the last of this off topic message here. But Melissabo iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks have the best return rate to their original owners.

I am pretty sure that since both King Bed and Preferred are bookable catagories, you'll have to make a choice as to which is more important and the other would be a request. You can book a preferred location and request a King or book a King and request a preferred locations. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will be by shortly to correct me.
You are correct...that's exactly what we did. We booked a King and requested preferred. The King was more important to us, which is why we booked that category. The rest is just gravy, right? Afterall, we'll be in WDW

Getting back to POR talk, one of my favorite things from last week was sitting on a bench with DH while we sipped a cup of coffee. Our boys would play at the playground and DH and I would just watch them and chit chat our day. Listening to the Christmas songs and enjoying the relaxed vibe of the resort made it even better. We can't wait to go back.
