Contemporary Theme Park View

If you reserve, and pay for, a theme park tower room at Contemporary, are you guaranteed that view? Are some rooms better than others? I put “highest floor” on my online request but didn’t know if I should also ask for a particular area (room closer to the MK side)? I started a new job last year and this is my treat to myself. :cloud9: Thanks!
