My daughter and I will be visiting WDW in September, specifically to attend the Food & Wine Festival. I had considered staying at the Boardwalk Inn again because we loved it when we were there in April of last year, but I happened upon a really fantastic deal at the Swan Hotel where I am getting two nights free. It was too good to pass up so I reserved a Deluxe Balcony room and specifically asked the young man "Those face Crescent Lake, right?" and he said "yes." But after perusing their website I see that not all of them do.
My question is this - I'd like to call back and be pretty specific in my request. I know they can't guarantee anything (and since I'm getting this special deal I may be ignored anyway), but what I would like to request is a high room with a balcony on the side that overlooks Crescent Lake and the Boardwalk. I am trying to be able to see the EPCOT fireworks, if possible.
What is the best way to word such a request? And what, if anything, does anyone know about the various views from these balcony rooms at the Swan? If anyone even has something as incredibly useful as a specific room number that they know provides the view I'd like to have, that would be wonderful!
I may have had better luck at the Dolphin as far as the view is concerned, but they didn't have the dates available that I needed.
Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
