Do you think I should ask for the building numbers, or do you think they will know what I mean if I say along the main river path? I just do not want a room too "deep in the bayou"! My second request would be the corner room too, I'm sure we will need that extra room.
I would basically say you would like a room along the main river path, preferably in 38 or 39. Remember to ask for magic and not be demanding or dramatic. Try to put a smile on the CM's face and they are more likely to hook you up.

I thought I read that only the exterior corner room have the 2 windows and the inner corner rooms (like near the stairwell's) don't

Sorry, what is the best way to save money? I was seriously considering a split stay then realized I'd have to break up my tickets in two to qualify for free dining at each resort. That adds a good deal of extra money. Any suggestions?

Can you just buy your tickets under your free dining ressie for your whole stay? I believe you are allowed to pick tickets up 3 days in advance of the day you are set to check in

But then they don't get free dining for the second part. You have to buy the park tickets with each package to qualify for free dining.
I don't think there is a cheap way to get free dining on a split stay because of that, unfortunately. Maybe do the room only discount for the second part? Wouldn't get free dining on that but wouldn't have to buy the park tickets with both reservations.

Oh, I was assuming they were doing a split ressie because they had a room only and a FD ressie. Didn't read that thoroughly enough

Thanks. I was hoping I was missing something. Oh well, another reason to start saving for another trip. We have everything set at Pop, I just started thinking why not try to do WL too, 4 nights each. We are planning to take a whole day off to go hang out there..why not just stay? Well, another $1,500 is reason enough. Next time, :-)
