    HI, we stayed at CBR last year and had a room close to the pool. Can I request that again if I don't select a preferred room ? If not, what are the closest buildings ( non preferred ) that I could request ? Thank you !

    Hi Sue.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question.

    You certainly may choose to place a 'request' on your Resort Reservation file if you wish. Do keep in mind that this is only a 'request' and that your preferences may not be able to be met. Room assignments are based on availability at the time of Check-In. To place a request on file, call (407) 939-7675 and speak with a Cast Member. Let them know that you'd like to have a 'note' added to your Reservation and then let your requests be known.

    If you are requesting a location close to Old Port Royale and the feature pool area, your best chance of ensuring that your request will be granted is to upgrade your reservation to be a 'Preferred Location' room. Doing so will put your room assignment into the Martinique or Trinidad North Villages, located on either side of Old Port Royale.

    Alternatively, I'd recommend that you consider requesting a room in Jamaica or Aruba villages and in buildings 45 or 51 as top choices. These two particular buildings are directly across Barefoot Bay from Old Port Royale and are not considered to be 'Preferred' although personally, I prefer them! The pleasant walk across the foot bridges and island and over to Old Port Royale is lovely. Even if you're not able to secure one of the two closest buildings in those villages, anywhere in these villages is a short jaunt over to dining and the feature swimming pool, water play area and water slide.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Sue.
    Please don't hesitate to write me back if I may be of further assistance to you. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
