questions about requesting a building...

1st choice: Dalmations
2nd choice: Love Bug

If we pay the extra preferred but Dalmations isn't available but Love Bug is, will they give us credit for the extra preferred payment or will they just put us in another preferred bldg?

Or would it be easier to not pay for preferred, list the two choices, and hope for an upgrade? Mid-June, so I know not to hold my breath.

Personally, I don't care. But dd picked Dalmations and just about everything else this whole trip will be about her brothers.

I know this is a fairly stupid question hardly worth posting, but I need to get this settled in my itty bitty brain.

guessing here, but....

Yesterday 09:07 PM
carmiedog Can anyone please poinpoint on the resort map where these guys (er...ducks) are?
http://www.ourlaughingplace.com/aspx...SMovies&resort

While I'm at it, are there any good aerial maps showing where all the "stuff" is?





Mickey's Fantasia hat is in the background. So, I would guess if you can find that big hat, go behind the trees behind it, and you should find them. I'm going June of 09, and am now going to have to look for them myself as now I'm curious, too!

We were actually offered bounceback and have booked again for next september with free dining but are bouncing back at pop century. But the resort itself NO PROBLEMS!

Thanks for the info! I just know that my mom will be sending me out to get the coffee in the wee hours of the morning Has anyone taken one of those small 4-cup coffee makers and used it in the room? I saw one in the store today for $12 but if Disney doesn't allow them, then I don't want to buy it for no reason.

we just stayed at All Sports and brought our own coffee maker, coffee, sugar, milk and disposable coffee cups we had no problem at all. I am sure it would work the same at all movies and as a matter of act we plan to bring the stuff again next year when we stay at asmu. enjoy your trip!

Dec 13-19th

Hello! We just switched resorts from CSR to ASmo. Got an amazing rate with QXG. (if you are there 3rd week of Dec, definitely check it out!)
So question is, can you move the beds? I assume no. We have 2 toddlers, so I will make sure to ask for the bedrails.
We are in a preferred room, and I read something about if you wanted to see Woody or Buzz, request the opposite character building? A little confused by this.
We are very excited (esp with saving $550!!), and the kids will love it! We are celebrating both of their birthdays.
ALso, what is available for breakfasts? I want to do breakfasts in the room as some quiet family time. Can you purchase milk in the gift shop? They love their cereals.
Also, tipping...do you tip your lugguage person (are they called bell hops?), and of course Mousekeeping.
Oh I am so excited! YAY!

You would want to request the opposite character building because if you're looking out your window (assuming you're facing the characters and not the parking lot or trees) you won't be able to see "your" character from your window, you'll see the character that's directly across from you. As far as breakfast, they have mickey waffles, muffins ect. and yes you can buy milk from the little grocery area in the food court.

Thanks so much! I will definetly buy one now. I don't mind walking to the food court area for it, but I'd rather have at least one cup of coffee in me before I 'walk' anywhere

This is a nice All Star. I like this one better than Music & Sports.

I have been reading through pages and pages of info but haven't seen a definitive answer to this yet --

has All Star Movies been refurbished or not?

thanks!
