Oversold Disney Room Categories – Sometimes a Garden View or other category room maybe oversold or not available for some reason.
If you booked this category of room and it is not available the room assigner will move you up to another category that has rooms.
Don’t check in last, or do check in last – Your best bet is to check in early.
Your room(s) probably will not be ready but when you check in early there is more availability for that day so your chances are better at getting something if it was not pre-booked already for you. They want to honor your request but there are only so many rooms that match in this big puzzle and they may have been booked up by guests that had the same requests that checked in days before your vacation.
The cast member may be able to room change you later in your stay if your request is not available.
So the hotel room assigner is constantly looking for rooms that connect, adjoin, or fit a special request.
The number of these rooms that fit the exact guest request are limited and also if you have booked, for example, a Garden View Room and your friend you are traveling with has booked a Magic Kingdom view room, you are not going to get a connecting room.
Certain room categories do not match up or have limited numbers.
