Cool All-Star Movies- Standard vs Preferred?

I did talk to my mom and she said we need a preferred room and I don't know any of preferred rooms. I was thinking to taking the Fantasia room for January 2010! It's really close to the lobby! Please help me!

I went with preferred in May and all they ask is parking lot or pool side and which floor so you may want to call if you want a specific location of your room.

Preferred rooms are closest to the amenities like the food court, check-in area, gift shop, etc. They cost a bit more per night but people with mobility issues may find it worthwhile; we usually stay in a preferred room at Music (Calypso) for that reason.

According to my 2009 Passporter, the preferred buildings at Movies are Fantasia, Toy Story, and 101 Dalmations. Fantasia is located just a little farther from Cinema Hall past the main pool.

Last year we skimped and did not get the preferred. The walk to and from the food court, etc is awful in my opinion. I think preferred is well worth the extra money.
