We’re 60 days out, would really like to get Trinidad rooms. Has anyone used TPs to request the section only and gotten it? I haven’t had any luck with our reservations in the past. (No selections made on MDE)
Yep. I requested Aruba last time I did CBR and got it with TP…
We also requested Aruba and got it
I just tried to request with TP so I’ll let you know how it goes. I have been reading online that people go to check in and their is no record of any of their requests so I’m not optimistic.
The room requests go directly to the room assigners I believe, not the resort. Years ago rooms were assigned at each resort, now the room assigners are located at one central location?
I only ask for sections of resorts when I do room requests vs specific rooms. I’ve had my requests met that way for the last 7 or 8 trips.
This was my strategy too! I requested building 45 CBR and got 51 - so really close, but my request was something along the lines of my priorities…
- want to be close to reservation x, adjoining room is good
- proximity to OPR and Skyliner
I had something else too but don’t remember now. I also thanked them for making our trip magical and reviewing our request.
We asked for 45 or 51, got put in 41 in 2017. Then 2019 asked for bottom floor at Poly, ended up on 3rd. Never ask for specific rooms or put anything in the check-in forms. Don’t know what it is, but my luck hasn’t been great. Really wish they would just open it as a booking category and I can be done with it.
I’m hoping for them too…want the mermaid theme! I put in a request for one of the ones closer to the bridge to the skyliner in Trinidad using touringplans. I put nothing in the Checkin thru Disney itself because I heard it confuses them to do both plus you can’t request specific room areas that way. Just like near a bus, first floor.
