    I probably should know this, but in all our visits to WDW I have not actually requested a specific room or building!:goodvibes
    DH has become an "exercise junkie" and so for our next trip in June we chose CSR, since it is the mod with a good exercise room. It would be so much more convenient for him if we were in Casitas 4 near the exercise facility.
    Can I make this request when I do on line check-in before leaving home? He'll freak if our room is at the opposite end of the resort, since it is so spread out.
    Thanks for the help!

    I don't know about the online check-in route, but you can call and ask them to put the request on your reservations. I did this for my recent reservation and it was very easy.

    On the other hand, warming up for an exercise routine by walking to the facility isn't necessarily a bad idea... :).

    IIRC from my recent experience, online check-in only offers Cabanas as a location selection, but not Casitas. I just did online check-in for our upcoming trip and already had a request for Casitas (so we can be the first bus stop), and only requested close to transportation for the online portion. I would call (as I will again) closer to your arrival date to request Casitas. You might even be able to ask about placing a request for close to exercise facilities. That might work as well.

    I would call 407WDISNEY and ask the CM to put a room request on your reservation and I would request "Casita 4 or Casita 5"

    Casita 4 is where the work out room is but Casita 5 is the building right next to it.

    If you want to be guaranteed to be near the work out room you can book a preferred room. The preferred rooms are in Casitas 1, 2 and 3.

    We were going to stay at CSR on our November trip but I changed my mind when so many ppl complained about the motion sensors on the air conditioners. If you aren't moving around the room (like when you are sleeping) the air cuts off and you gets sweaty in your sleep.

    We also picked it for the work out room because my DH works out every day. Now we just decided to stay at OKW instead. We are going to rent points and try to book a preferred room at OKW (Hospitality House studio) because OKW has a good work out room too.

    I can't sleep with no air blowing.

    Both resorts - CSR and OKW - also have excellent internal bus transportation. Guests who can't get a room close to the workout area and won't walk to it can always use the bus system.

    Your best bet is to call and request a room close to the exercise facility.

    I've seen somewhere that there are bypass instructions so you can bypass the motion sensor and have the room set to whatever temp you want for a period of 24 or 48 hrs...something like that.

    I'm sorry, but I have to ask.

    Doesn't walking count as exercise?
