Question Room Request...

I have a trip planned for September of this year. Last year (our first trip) I stayed at All Star Music and loved it but this year we switched to All Star Movies 'cause it seems a little more "Disney".

A few things I am looking for in a room, in order of imporntance, are:
1. non Smoking
2. King Bed
3. close to Cinima Hall and Laundry
4. first floor

Currently I have a request in for non smoking, king room located on the first floor of Fantasia Building #8 as close to cinima hall as possible.

First of all is this a possible "combination" for a room? If it is, then is it the best request for what I am looking for and if it is not, then what would be the best request for what I am looking for?

Also should I just leave it at putting my request on my reservation or should I fax it in and if so when should I fax it?

Also, Feel free to leave me any other All Star Movies Advice you think I should know!!

Sorry for all the questions... I know the disboards are the place to get my answers though!!!

Great thread! We will be staying at ASMo in October. We have stayed many times at Music and Sports before, but this will be the first for Movies .

We have booked a preferred room. My first request is non-smoking. After that it would be a big deal for us to be very close to the pool. Noise will probably not be a factor because we are pretty well used to sleeping in a noisy situation. Plus, the kids (9 and 6) would love being close to the pool. After that, I would like to be close to the bus stop -only for the sake of saving a few steps at the end of the day (this is not a big deal, but in a perfect world...). Theming is not an issue for us. I think we would be equally happy with Dalmations, TS, or Fantasia. Right now I am thinking of requesting:

1) non-smoking
2) Fantasia #8
3) facing courtyard
4) ground level

Does this sound about right? Will they think I am a wierdo for making so many specific requests?

Some correct me if I am wrong on this, but I believe that the laundry is down by mighty ducks, which isn't close to the cinema hall. Also I don't know if you know or not but the fantasia building is a preferred building. We found out when we went in a couple weeks ago that all building except love bug and mighty ducks are preferred.

Fantasia always was preferred. I guess TS and DALM got so many req, that WDW is capitalizing on them too. Also, the only smoking permitted in rooms is in one of the MD buildings

Movies Questions

If you can't get in Fantasia, ask for Dalmation, building one. You are close to both pools and Cinema Hall/Bus depots. Call the resort directly, (407) 939-7000, one week before you arrive to confirm your request. Arrive as early as possible. Buy the resort refillable mugs.

We'll be staying at ASMo in August. We have a Buzz loving 3 year old and a 7month old. We need a quiet room for afternoon naps for both of them and DS LOVES Buzz so I'm thinking I'll request Buzz, 2nd or 3rd floor, courtyard as suggested. My only concern is the distance from Buzz to the pool. I figure DS will be in it a bit each day but it looks kind of far from the bldg on the map.... how far is this? Also, when we booked, the only rooms left were preferred. I tried to request TS then but was told that all that was left was preferred so it would be Fantasia. We booked in May and I requested an upper floor but didn't specify a building because of it. (by the way, this was the same CM who said I should buy a few extra days of tickets instead of the park hopper which I've since learned won't work!)

Does that mean we will be in Fantasia or that they were switching TS and Dalm to preferred and the CM didn't know about it?

Should I call and fax my request now or must it be done when booking?

Thanks. I figure I'll give a call and see if they can specify TS for me.

Anyone have any info on the distance from TS to the pool?

Also, if I request Courtyard, will it be overly noisy because of Andy's room? The baby will be napping in the afternoon and will be going to bed most nights at 7:30pm. Is there a better location to request?

Thanks!

We just returned from a 10 day stay at ASMo. We recieved a complimentary upgrade to Preferred rooms. Our rooms were in bulding 9 (Woody), first floor, rooms 9724 and 9725. Friends of ours had room 9726. Our rooms were close to everything, yet far away from the courtyard to be nice and quiet. Our rooms did not face the courtyard. That wound up to be a good thing since it was quieter.

The rooms were plenty big, although we did have connecting rooms. I think that if we only had the one room I might have felt cramped though. DH and I stayed in the first room while 4 girls shared the beds in the connecting room and my DS slept on a twin size air mattress in that room.

However, somehow in the middle of the night our 2 littlest girls wound up finding their way into me and DH's beds in the first room, lol.

There is plenty of room for a twin size air mattress if you put it where the table and chairs goes. You can either move the table and chairs in front of the window or put them in the other room if you have connecting rooms.

Here's a photo of just how much room we did have in the room with the air mattress.


Mousekeeping even made up DS's air mattress with fresh linens each day.

I should also mention that the beds at ASMo ARE movable. We first thought we would put DS's air mattress in between both beds. We tried that first, but wound up putting it where the table was because it just worked out better that way.

Hope this helps with the planning!

Jennifer.

Herbie rooms

I am just in the dreaming stage for a quick Christmas trip. We went last year and it was nice and quiet. I would love to stay at POFQ but need to downsize the cost since it will be the week before Christmas.

My DS suggested staying at ASMo and trying to get a Herbie room for DD. I stayed at ASMo last year but it was only for 2 nights and we didn't really tour the grounds, pool and only used the food court 1 night because it was pouring out.

Anyway, does anyone have any pics of the Herbie rooms? Any thoughts on the Herbie rooms? We won't be using the buses since I will have my car.

TIA
