Not a big deal as you can park in the overflow lot and go enjoy the pool while you wait for a text that your site is ready.
Good link. I can't believe it's so hard to find information directly from the Disney site. Still need to figure out if we need to take a wireless router. It appears the internet is through cable.

Any chance you have pictures of your hauler/camper setup?

We have a Georgetown with a skull on the dash and a boxer dog that looks like a mastiff. We received the Disney booklet with a reservation number, but no specific site. Is it on a first come first served basis?

They'll get you in your loop you requested during reservation but don't assign a site in that loop until you check in...so kinda goes by what's open for your stay when you arrive

you can request a loop and even ask for a preferred site number if you have one. Make sure if you have a pet that you request a pet loop. Usually you are not given a site number until you check in at the front gate.

We enjoy the 300 loop, and have stayed in a couple of sites. My last site could fit me but was too close to all the foot traffic and drove my minpin (and me) nuts. So we set our reservations again, requested the 300 loop and told them which sites we preferred that the 5th wheel would fit into.

Yes, take your router with you.

Thanks for the reply. I have a spare one somewhere that I need to dig out.
