Where would you request with two children ( 5 and almost 2) Would love to be facing the lake but don't want to have to walk a good distance... We were booked at CBR but I cancelled bc I was scared of how big the resort is.

60s Lakeview is super close to transportation and Classic Hall. That's where I was in December and it took me maybe 3 minutes to get from my 4th floor room to Classic Hall each time.

I'm kinda panicking where we're going to chill our summer water bottles in August!

TAs were just informed about this today. They are supposedly being removed immediately and will be replaced over the next 4 months.

Just booked POP for October 2014. Two adults, no kids. You guys on this thread talked me into it.

I also figured out how to put a countdown thingie in my signature.

I agree with PhoenixStrength. 60's lake view is a great location. We were in building 4, 4th floor just 1 door away from the elevator. It was a quick walk to the main building and the pool was literally a minute away from our room but we didn't have the pool noise because we weren't facing it. The only drawback would be if you have a car there and plan to use it during your stay. The parking lots are a long walk. If you're planning to use the buses, it's not an issue. We drive, but we never use our car while we're there. However, it was a long trek to the car to load and unload.

You can request a particular building with online check in?

Specific building requests must be called in, but you can request a certain decade with online check in.

Ww have always included it with our reservation and always got what we asked for; we've never called it in.

I do not want a pool view due to noise issues. If I booked a standard room, are there any requests I should make to be sure my room is quiet such as top floor or a specific building?

Our request is always 50s section, Building C, Illuminations view. Has worked for us each time and you are away from the pool.

Is this more than one request? If so, how do you prioritize?

We don't, we simply make the request in that exact manner. Twice we were given the same room and the third time, the room next to it.

Thank You! I will put that in my notes. Distances to Bus Stop or Pools or Food Court are not an issue. Since the room is for sleeping, I'd like to sleep

Do you mean bldg "3" because the bldgs are numbers not letters? Just trying to clarify because this could be confusing to someone new to the resort. Bldgs are numbered 1 thru 10.
