I just wanted to share my experience and ask if anyone has ever had luck with this procedure.
I had read somewhere that dining seating requests could be made via e-mail directly to the dining department (I had already made my request when the reservation was made). So, being only a few weeks away from our departure I sent an e-mail to the address I had found, along with our reservation numbers and table location request.
I was tickled to recieve the following email response...
"Good morning, Your request was received and forwarded to the Maitre'd."
Has anyone ever done this?
