So, back in 2015, last time we went on a big multi-room family trip, Disney did NOT honour our room request and put me and the kids next to Grandma and Grandpa at POR. In fact, my family was in the Bayou, while my parents, and my brother and his girlfriend (who have no kids) were in the Mansions. We were about as far apart as possible.When we asked why they would not put us together, we got something about them trying to keep the Mansions adult-only, and putting families in the Bayou. I’ve since heard from friends staying at other resorts, that the one thing Disney doesn’t seem to be able to do is keep traveling parties spread out over multiple rooms together.
We’re going back this year, and we’d like to be close. Strategically, what is our best bet? Do we ask to be together? Do we just put in a strategic room request so we end up at least on the same side of the resort?
