What is the difference between a standard room and a "preferred" room?

I booked a trip for December and the only room available at a discount were preferred rooms so I went for it.

Here now, in Toy Story section. We have a working fridge! Didn't have to request it, it was plugged in and running when we got to our room. Doubled checked for a Warning note, but found none.

Thanks for the update on the fridge. We'll be checking in in less than 3 weeks so that is great news. I was wondering if they switched the coffee from Nescrape' to Joffreys?

Because there is no space to store 27,000 fridges

In regard to the Coffee pots they read Jofferys when I was there Aug 11-16. I really liked the dalmation section , which is preferred.

Just checked into all star movies today! Awesome!! Dalmatian building with my parents and grandparents all in a row next to us. Rooms were cleaned and ready for check in at 11:00 am this morning. No working fridges, but we did request our credit. They say the credit will be put back on the credit card we paid for the package with. Very pleased!

anyone checking in October? Has anyone received any magic band email or anything of the sort? It sounds like we may be out of luck for October at this point? I'll be checking in the 12th with no luck at this point.

So glad to hear that! We check in next week, and I have requested Toy Story section. We'd hoped to have a fridge, so hopefully we'll get one too!

OK I need to ask, what does this mean specifically. Do you have to request a certain section to get the better located room or do they do it automatically?

What it means is a Preffered room is going to be closer to the main hall than then other locations

Here is a map

That being said I have stayed at the Mighty Ducks and the Herbie section and found the walk to be just fine about 7 mins.

Thank you. Though I rent a car so for me it isn't a huge deal.
