    going to Disney in October and staying at Carribean . upgraded to preferred rooms but really want to stay at Jamaica 45 buildings or Barbados 32. They say you can only request when you get there? any chance of securing that before?


    Thanks for sending me your question here at planDisney!

    So, what you have heard is largely true. Disney cannot guarantee a specific room or building request for your upcoming stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, since they are placing so many guests into so many rooms at so many hotels, all at the same time. But you can improve your chances of getting your wish for your “home in the magic” to come true by following a few simple steps. 

    Step 1: While you cannot select a specific location at the time of booking, when you use the Online Check-In feature of My Disney Experience you may have the option to request a room based on the view, location, floor, or for early check-in. These options can change over time, and by resort. But that will help your chances. Though Disney cannot guarantee that they can fulfill your request, it does improve your chances of getting a preferred room location.

    Step 2: I would advise you to also call Disney at (407) 934-7639 and add your building request. This is the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations number, and they can make a special note of your preference on your reservation. The sooner you call, the better. 

    Step 3: Upon arrival, if you are not in one of these two preferred buildings, do not hesitate to ask if there is a chance of moving. If they can grant your wish, they will. I have done this a few times, and I can tell you that the cast members were more than pleasant and accommodating when I asked. 

    An often-overlooked perk of staying at the Caribbean Beach resort is the immediate access to both the Disney Skyliner and some premium coffee! If you really need a good morning cup of java, there is a Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company kiosk that is a free-standing booth located by the Caribbean Beach Disney Skyliner station. You can enjoy a drink on your travels and arrive charged and ready to go!
    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions. 

    Have a Magical Vacation!
