We’ve always had good luck with room requests at Disney resorts (using TP room request fax - has even worked with rented DVC points), but we’ve always arrived on property pretty early in the day. For our September trip this year (check in 9/17; driving down from GA), we won’t be arriving on property until 11pm. I am wondering if this will effect our room request? I’m guessing yes, and I’m ok with it - just worry about getting assigned a left over room no one wants. Will be at BRV, and we were hoping for a nice view of Bay Lake, or even some trees - but I’m wondering if we’ll get one of the rooms overlooking the laundry bins This is a resort heavy trip (only doing a 2 day park ticket) - normally the rooms don’t matter so much, and we are 7 day park ticket people - but this time I find myself caring a little more about room assignment as we are likely to spend a good amount of time in the room.
Has anyone had success with getting the room they requested (or close to) despite a late arrival to Disney property? Has anyone gotten a less than desirable room when checking in late? Obviously a room at Disney is better than a room anywhere else, but we’ve been spoiled so far as far as granted room requests, and I do enjoy my Disney views
