    Sorry that your daughter had flooding issues, but happy the housekeeping took care of the situation promptly ... and the upside... the unexpected liking of a new area that she may never thought about requesting! :thumbsup2 (and the Tramp building does have HC rooms).

    I remember our stay in bldg 9... end room by Mr./Mrs Potato head...it was one of the quietest rooms we have ever had! And I really liked looking over at those pac men and Roger Rabbit. :goodvibes

    Okay for those of you who have inquired about non HC. King rooms, here are the statistics on them at POP.
    There are only 9 preferred and 29 std king rooms that are not HC adapted in any way.
    There are 12 preferred and 8 std king rooms that are ADA adapted for the deaf.
    There are 11 preferred and 19 std king rooms that have the tubs w/ handrails & raised toilets.
    There are 29 preferred and 41 std king rooms that have the roll in shower & raised toilet.
    For a grand total of 150 king rooms!
    Roll in showers will NEVER be on the fourth floor.
    The non HC king rooms will be located in bldgs 2, 4, 6, 8 & 9.
    HTH!!

    Was wondering. DH said that on our next trip depending on where we stay he would like a room right by the kiddie pool. What would that section be? How would it be listed on the reservations? Would I also need to make some kind of request? Thanks in advance.

    The kiddie pool is directly behind the main pool, in the 60s section. I would request a room in the 60s section in one of the wings that is lakeside.

    That would be 60s Preferred. There's a link to the map showing where all the different categories are near the bottom of the 2nd post in this thread.

    Here is the link that shows preferred/preferred pool and standard views, hopefully this will give you an idea of the layout:

    If you are wanting closest to the kiddie pool, you would want to book Preferred View and request 60's building, close to the Kiddie pool (these are just requests and not guarenteed and there are several preferred view locations).
    If you are wanting to be close to the kiddie pool but you want to pay standard rates you would book Standard and request lake side, 60's building (again, there are several standard locations and requests are not guarenteed).

    But, at this point, if I change to a standard room, won't I get charged more because of the ticket price increase?

    Beg to differ, but there are handicapped king rooms with roll-in shower on the 4th floor. My parents had one in October. They didn't want it ... as my brother is a quadriplegic and without his wheelchair he is unable to move and way too heavy to carry down the stairs in case of a fire. They tried to get moved but there were no ground floor available at the time so they just dealt with it. Their room was a king handicapped adjoining a regular room.

    I'm sorry your family experienced that problem.
    what room number were they in? And probably what made the situation even more difficult to try to move them to the first floor was the need for connecting rooms.
    I am going by the information provided by the room assigner whom I have developed a rapport with that works in the back office at the actual hotel (NOT a call center). ALL 4th floor King HC rooms are supposed to be tubs w/ handrails. This person has always been spot on with all the information she has given me before and has backed it up with documentation.

    No problem Stitchlovestink, just sharing! They were in the 70's, not sure what room, but up above the "fooseball" guys, facing the "Mickey phone". I can ask my Mom what room(s) they had. And yes, the need for connecting rooms does make it difficult anywhere they go. Brother needs 1:1 care (even to roll over in bed) but it's worth it because he Loves Loves Loves Disneyworld! :woohoo: And we all love Pop!

    I asked this question the other day, posters suggested taking the bus to MK and taking the boat to Fort Wilderness.

    Just changing from one category room to a different category should not cause you to pay more. It should save you some money since Preferred pool view is the highest room rate and standard is the lowest. They shouldn't have to change anything about your package other than the room category.
    Disboard friends please correct me if I am wrong. :scratchin
    If you are within 45 days of check in, there may be a change fee.
    When you booked your trip was Preferred Pool View all that was available or did you have a choice?

    Just call and ask and let us know what they say:thumbsup2

    In a similar boat myself. I will be making an upgrade to my reservation so I had called to ask this same question. I was told that anything under 15 days would have a fee (not sure if she said it was 15 dollars or so) and no changes at all made 3 days prior to reservation.

    Ft Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge are the stops for that one. There is also one that goes to Grand Floridian and the Polynesian.
