Hello! We are making our first trip later this month, and looking at room requests. (I feel I’ve done due diligence, and spent hours searching archives and searching the room finder, so I hope I’m not being redundant with my questions).
Based on archives here, I think I’m going to request a Sunset Savannah view room for AKL, and we have a standard room at the Polynesian. We have already warned the kids that it may be too chilly to swim much, so I would like to avoid a pool room view. Does anyone have suggestions for where we could request? I saw that someone once suggest the Aotearoa (@PrincipalTinker ?) but I can’t figure out what room block that was, and most of the view pics on room finder aren’t impressive. Will construction affect requests, or is that only on one pool?
When I fill out the room request, what is the most polite verbiage to put in the comment section that we would gladly accept an upgrade? I want to leave that open, but not sound brash… We have 2 kids, and this trip is smack dab in the middle of their ten-day-apart January birthdays (will be 6 and 8). Do I mention the birthdays in the request, also?
Thank you so much for your help! We have a feeling that this will be the “magical” trip, and a one-shot deal, so I want to get it right!!!
