Hey everybody. I have a question we just booked a preferred room for the end of August. My daughters love toy story. Should I request to stay in the toy story section or is it better to see all the toy story things when you are in another building looking out your door and windows. Is it obstructed when you are actually in the section you enjoy the most? Hope this ? Makes sense. TIA

My preference is to actually stay in the TS wing. Everything is a bit spread out so we liked being near the TS courtyard. We walked over to the other sections. I don't think you can see the courtyard from any other buildings.

Does it matter what floor you are on? Is it better to request a top floor? In your opinion

We were on the top floor (rm 9911) and we liked it. We didn't face the courtyard but could see it when we walked over to the elevators. If you are lucky and you get a room where you can see the courtyard, I think it is better to be higher up since Buzz and Woody are HUGE!

Thanks for your help. I just called and put those requests in. Ts section facing courtyard higher floor. Hopefully our requests will come true

Is there a safe in the value resort rooms? If so, is it big enough for a iPad?

What time of year/ months do tour groups take over the resort? Do they stay in the standard or preferred section? We are thinking first two weeks in may or first part of October. I like the looks of asmo but I do not want to be there with huge tours of teens etc.

I think to get the best view of Andy's room would be the top floor. We stayed at the TS section facing Woody twice.. and we loved it!! When we stayed at the Dalmation section.. we also chose the top floor. It's just a better view and less foot traffic.. less noise.

Being on the 3rd flr you don't hear toilets flushing above you. That's why I always request the top floor.

Are cupcakes and donuts available in the food court? We have a tradition of powdered donuts for breakfast for the birthday kid and we would like to keep it going for my daughters Disney Birthday. TIA!

Can anyone who has been there recently tell me the colors that are available for the mugs? I keep finding different answers to the question depending on what hotel and when. Pictures would be great also. I want to make stickers with our names to put on the handle and top and now I'm trying to decide what color to make the stickers.
