I know all request can not be fulfilled but do you make a request for a certain area/room when making reservations?

We have not gone to the Polynesian.  We usually go to POFQ and we request a water or pool view, they are closer to the main entrance, food court and bus stop.  And you are not looking directly into another building.

At poly we asked for a view of magic kingdom which are the Hawaii and Tahiti long houses. Our view was very nice facing MK and the lagoon. You can see what rooms were recently renovated too and request one if those as well

I actually prefer the older section and ask for Aoteroa or Fiji. It's possible to get a MK view for the price of a lagoon view room on the lagoon side of Aotearoa.

Yes, we always request the ground floor if the Tahiti bldg. if you get a theme ok view, you'll have a great view of the fireworks and park. The ground floor rooms have patios that aren't penned in so you can go right out and run around on the grass - which makes the room seem bigger. It's like having an outdoor living room!:)


Also, the room is close to the ticket and transportation center so you can get to and from Epcot easily - as well as the mk.
It's also private on that side so you usually don't have anyone walking past your room while you're in your pjs watching the fireworks.

The only request we have made is ground floor. We like having the balcony. The upper floors, have sliders but no balcony.

That's not entirely true. In the older building the third floors have a balcony in all rooms, the 2nd floor has sliders. In the newer buildings there are balconies on both the second and third floors.

True, but the one time we didn't request, we ended up in that middle floor.
Which stunk.
We like the ground floor.

When and how do you make these type of requests?

You can make the request any time after you've made your reservation. You can call 407-w-Disney and have them add your request. I like to call again about 4 days before we check in to make sure they see it. They always say that the requests aren't guaranteed but they do try to accommodate and I think we've always gotten the room we requested.
