Always best to call. I'd list them just as you said...top floor, courtyard view, and maybe throw in "closest to food court" or some such thing...we got a good room that way. Usually they can fit about three requests on the paperwork. List your most important one first.

Pop is my absolute favorite value resort, but All Star Movies is the first resort I've ever stayed at on property back in 2001.

I'm always going back and forth on whether to book AS Movies or Pop for our family trip in September 2014.

I think I should just go for it. The kids would be thrilled with all of the movie icons... especially the Toy Story ones!

Someone tell me I won't have regret on not booking Pop again!

I was looking to book a RO first week of April and Movies is more expensive than POP. First time I have ever seen this. Anyone know why? Probably book Sports now.

Were preferred rooms the only ones available at Movies?

No, This was for a standard room at both resorts. Maybe it's just supply and demand vs. a set price like Disney usually does.

Question from an ASMo newbie...

I'm staying at ASMo for the Princess Half in February. Although I've reserved a standard room, when I went to do online check-in, it included 101 Dalmations and Toy Story in my options for room requests. Aren't these preferred only? If so, why would these be included as options?

The online check-in requests aren't coded to be that smart -- it's the same set of selections regardless of what room type you have reserved.

EDIT: I've since learned that portions of Toy Story and 101 Dalmatians sections may be considered standard rooms, and so that's why those choices appear.

That's what I was afraid of.

So, if I've just paid for a standard room, is there any reason to choose Love Bug vs Mighty Ducks? I do want a high floor, and am requesting that, but I'd also like to be fairly close to transportation and the food court without too much noise. Since those aren't offered as requests online, is one building better-suited than the other?

I stayed in mighty ducks and used music food court and transportation as it was closer

First timer

I think I am still in shock on what happened Christmas morning. My brother's and mom put in my stocking a print out from AAA and it read Penni you are going to Disneyworld Dec 2 until the 9th staying at ASmo with the dining plan I looked at the balance and it said PAID IN FULL
This will be my first stay at this resort. I called Disney today and put in my request -- building 7, ground level near smoking area. I asked the CM if this was a quite area and she said yes.......What do you all think????
I don't know why I am scared but I am...I think it is because I am a Pop lady.
Please anyone give me some pointers on what to except. Any info would really help. Thanks

Only thing is...Sometimes smoking areas get moved for various reasons. Hard to say if smoking areas will be in the same spots almost a year from now.
But congrats! Enjoy your trip!!

Pop is our fav, but we needed 3 rooms times 8 nights and I couldn't justify the price increase for Pop. So we tried AsMo.
We were completely satisfied and had no regrets staying at AsMo.
I'd rather save the money for food or souvies.

What an awesome surprise! You'll love AS Movies and it sounds like you put in for a good room request!

Me too! Saving money is always a good thing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that free dining is released again for this fall, plus it's still cheaper to stay at Movies and upgrade to regular dining than stay at a moderate with not having to upgrade.
