This might be a dumb question, but if you book two rooms on one reservation, will they automatically be near each other, or do you have to request it? Is there a chance we could get one room in one wing and another room in a different wing? Not that I don't trust my teenage kids in a room by themselves, but mama bird would like to have her chicks close by .
I always request connecting rooms. It's not "guaranteed", but we do it every year and have always been accommodated. Are you the only adult? I believe if there is just one adult and all the rest are under 18 they will guarantee connecting rooms, but I'm not 100% sure because I've never done it. Good luck!
Definitely request that they be connecting or adjoining. Although there is still no guarantee, I did this last year and my DD's were put two doors down from us. They are both in their late teens so we were okay with not being next door to each other, just happy they were close.
ChEARing on my BFF, hopefully next time I'll be joining her!
Like everyone else said, definitely make a request. On our last trip my mom had both rooms on her reservation, and even though we requested to be close to each other, she was at one of the hallway, and we were at the other.
I would also make the request on your reservation. And I wouldn't do the on line check in, but check in on arrival, so if the rooms aren't adjoining or connecting, you can ask at check in if this is available. It's easier to do with check in on arrival. The on line check in desk is a little harder to make changes at, and you may be sent to the other line anyway for changes.
Definitely make a request for close or a connecting room. Like Ashli said, I've also heard if you let them know they are minors they will make sure you have a connecting room.
You can request a connecting room. Like others have said, it's usually not a problem.
However, they will only guarantee it if you have minors travelling with a single adult. If you have 2 adults, even if your intention is to have kids in one room and adults in the other, you have to register with an adult in each room. The best way to do it, if you don't have a TA, is to call in - this way they will connect the reservations right away. Otherwise, you can make the reservation online, but then you have to call in to get them attached to each other and for the connecting request to be made.
Request connecting rooms. The ressies are linked when they are booked together so Disney will keep you in the same area, across the hall, adjacent, next to each or connecting.
For connecting here is the pecking order:
family with two adults and 3 or more children that won't fit in one room. They will be guaranteed connecting rooms as Disney does not want to split up Mom & Dad or worst have children sleeping alone in a room.
The second group that will get connecting rooms after the first scenario is taken care of is the trip with Grandma and Grandpa or Uncle John and Aunt Mary. There are 4 adults so no matter who is in what room children will always have adult supervision. Since this is immediate family their request will be granted if all of the first scenario are taken care of.
The next group is best friends and their families or neighbors or any two families looking to get connecting rooms. Once the first two scenarios are taken care of they will get connecting rooms based on availability at the time of check in.
We had 2 adults and 3 kids in 2 rooms. They said they guaranteed connecting (with an interior door between rooms). We got side by side rooms, but no interior door. It was really inconvenient, but I should have double checked the day before and the day of check in. Lesson Learned. Just be persistent.
