We check in in 4 days! Faxed my room request yesterday, haven't heard back yet. We requested either magnolia terrace or ground floor in a close bayou room. We'll see! We have a large stroller so stairs aren't an option!

I wouldn't be too surprised about not getting emails for a while as I believe David will be out of the office for about three weeks, and he's the one who often replies by email.

I must confess to having changed. We went from POR pool view to POFQ pool view last night. We still have free dining as it was available there but had been sold out earlier in the week.

As there are only 30 pool view rooms at FQ we know where we will be staying.

I put my fax in his attention...Now I'm wondering if I should just call Disney and ask for Magnolia Terrace only to assure that I at least have an elevator and am close to the pool...Instead of the more detailed fax I sent him...

Which is exactly why I keep advising people not to send faxes to any specifically named individuals. Don't worry though, I'm sure they will have set something up for faxes to be dealt with by someone else in the department while he's away.

If you are that worried that they won't see it, re-send it Attention: Room Assignors.

One thing I did as recommended by VenomHatch was I put my email address on the Fax that was addressed attention to the Room Inventory Manager. I got a return email that it was received and my request was granted. Just a thought...

Thank you for this! We've done this with Delta and Airtran, but I wasn't sure about it now that Southwest bought Airtran. We're using Southwest in late Sept this year.
