Thank you!! :goodvibes I just booked our trip to the FW Cabins in September on Friday!!! Looking at your pics just makes me even more excited. I think it's going to be great for us and our two little boys.

You know, I really didn't wanna stay in the 80s building because it looked so far away from the main building, but I WANT THAT VIEW! OMG I'm in love. HAHA ;)

May I ask what room number it was? I might request it!

It was room # 7351 which was a handicapped-accessible king bed room.

VAgal76: Thanks for posting those pictures of the AKL Presidential Suite!!! As you know since we've talked before we have that suite reserved in July. I can't wait. Your pictures just made me that much more excited. :cheer2: The BWI Steeplechase Suite is a dream of mine also. Do you happen to remember if the extra bedroom in the AKL suite has a daybed for lounging or not?

Thanks everyone for the great pics!! Love them all!

We just cancelled our Sept 06 reservations for BWV w/Boardwalk view (sadly Mom passed away & we flew to Oregon which we spent what was to be our deposit for the DVC renter for our airline fare but am so glad we got to spend a few hours with her). We are hopeful to replan again this fall and will be planning after the first of July.

Anyone have any pics of BWV 2-bedroom? (Hopefully we can get someone to rent w/Boardwalk view from again who was as wonderful as my last DVC owner - this is twice this year we planned to go but had to cancel so hopefully third time's the charm.)

The 2nd bedroom did not have a daybed for lounging. However, your (master bedroom) will have a separate sitting area with sofa and separate TV. Plus another TV in the armoire so you can watch TV from your bed. In the bathroom so you watch it while soaking in the tub. Well, you get the drift. LOL! The 2nd bedroom is pretty standard variety deluxe room. It reminded me of our regular concierge room. You're going to enjoy this suite. ::yes:: I can't wait to do the Steeplechase Suite. Lorenzo at BWI let me tour it when we stayed there in May, but I didn't have my camera ready. They had just refinished the hardwood flooring in it. It sure is pretty - oh, wait - that's "purty" in these parts. ;)

Heaven2dc - I'm truly sorry for your loss. :hug:

heatherlynn444 - That suite sure is purty. ::yes:: :teeth:

Does anyone know if all rooms at WL will be renovated to look like this? If so, I think they may have just convinced me to give WL a try:teeth:

Yes, all of the rooms at the WL are getting a face lift. I think the completion is slated for August of this year. We're going in July and I am hoping we get a renovated room. :goodvibes

Thank you everyone for your kind words! Mom was 93 and lived a long happy life - we will miss her alot - she kept asking if we had been to see "Mickey" yet whenever we chatted. Sometimes she would get confused when I said we were going to see Mickey (that was my late brother's name also but last time I visited she loved to hold the Mickey Mouse doll I gave her from our trip in 1997).

I just realized it sounded kind of funny how I stated that we used the funds for our deposit for the airline fare to go back a couple weeks ago to be with her before she passed - it was worth every penny. I just also felt bad for the DVC owner that I had to cancel our reservation since he was waiting for our deposit & had reserved us a boardwalk view which we were all so excited about but probably won't get now. :sad1:

I'd still love to see what a 2bedroom looks like so if anyone can send a recent pic - I've seen the ones on allearsnet.com and mousesavers but would love to see some new ones too esp with the view!

Here are my pictures from savannah view room 4224 at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It wasn't the best savannah view I've seen, but we did have a giraffe eating outside our balcony that was amazingly close one morning, and we loved that.

Heaven2dc,
Wanted to add my condolences to your family on the loss of your mom.

As for pics of the BWV/2 bedrooms......you can check out this thread. They don't have many pics of the room there, but there are several shots of BWV views. Perhaps you could make a request for some BWV room pics (I think there is a couple on here). I think the thread could use a bump :Pinkbounc anyway :)

Thanks, MiaSRN642! It looks like from these pics that a 2 bedroom is a 1bedroom connecting to a studio? The rooms are beautiful!

I'm going to post again in the rent/trade board after July 1st & request a 2bedroom and hopefully get lucky for a boardwalk view.

Love the AKL pics - my youngest would love to stay there too.

The S/D uses the same transportation system and guests can partake in extra magic hour too. You can't charge on your room key though like you can at the WDW owned and operated resorts. Other than that, there's not much difference in my opinion. :sunny:

I believe you share bus services with the BW, BC, and YC. I think the only way it's different from the Disney Hotels is that it doesn't have ME and you can't charge purchases from in the parks on your room key. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. ;)

Seriously though, we just save and save for our Disney trips. Plus, I stayed in several of the rooms back when the discounts were really good (like back in 2001 I got 45% off lagoon view concierge at the Poly--what a deal!).

I bet you've had some memorable trips. Enjoy your Christmas trip too, is this your first december vacation? We were there over this past Christmas. Christmas Eve was the best ever at Epcot. Christmas day was kind of a bummer in the Magic Kingdom because it was SOO crowded..did I mention SOOOOO crowded, seriously as far as we could walk was an inch at a time -it was raining and the power was out for a couple of hours so nothing was up and running therefore everyone decided to eat at the exact same time. It was hectic but I will always remember Christmas Eve. Anyway, enjoy! :woohoo:

EAD79, I am so glad you posted your photos of WL before they redid the rooms. The new rooms look much more spaceous and deluxe. I may just have to try a stay there with their concierge.

I love, love the armoire they had in the older rooms. Does anyone know what they did with them when they redid the rooms? Maybe I need to look on e-bay. :p I am enjoying this thread so much. Thank you for starting it. :grouphug:

Come on tell the truth?? You are a secret "traveler" and get paid to go to Disney world!

I know there is such a thing because when I did the Disney Cruise we dined with a moderator from these boards who got the trips free to evaluate the ships, service etc! Where can I apply?

Here are some pictures from the Sequoia Lodge in Disneyland Paris. My friend Bonnie stayed here on her recent trip to DLP. She's never been to WDW and I've never been to DLP, so we sent each other a huge chunk of info from each park.

As you can see, the rooms are quite different from those at the American parks, especially the bathroom. Though she did say that it was kind of an odd bathroom, even for Europe. And where we'd usually have a balcony, they just have a large window. The pools are also indoor because it gets quite cold in France. The pool at the Sequoia Lodge is very pretty but I do not have a picture of it.

I showed her my pictures from the Wilderness Lodge and we agree that the Sequoia Lodge and the Wilderness Lodge look a lot alike.

And where we'd usually have a balcony, they just have a large window. The pools are also indoor because it gets quite cold in France. The pool at the Sequoia Lodge is very pretty but I do not have a picture of it.

I showed her my pictures from the Wilderness Lodge and we agree that the Sequoia Lodge and the Wilderness Lodge look a lot alike.

Wow. Thanks for those photos. That is cool. I like the room decor there though the bathroom is a bit bland and different but it looks to be a very nice size.

We were down at WDW the first week of May. We had booked a deluxe water view room with a AAA discount, however, at check-in we were surprised with a complimentary upgrade to Concierge - room 5215.

The view from the balcony included the BC on the left:

View from the room. The building is the Paradise Pier Hotel. You can also see the entrance to the hotel below.

Another view from the room. The monorail passes directly under the this room. Unfortunately, the monorail was out of service for our entire visit. Wouldn't it have been awesome to have it go underneath you? Although I did wonder if it would have been noisy. That's the Disneyland hotel in the distance, and the covered entrance is to the convention center.

Nice pics WickedWench. The pics sort of put this resort a little more into perspective for me though. I had thought the surrounding grounds were more isolated----sort of like how the WL is ? The Grand Californian seems more out in the open---you can see the neighboring hotels ? I think I prefer the isolated/wilderness feel of the WL in WDW. But maybe the pics don't do it full justice ?
Thanks very much for posting because I really haven't seen many pics from the DL resorts.

Considering that DLR, including both theme parks, Downtown Disney, all three hotels, and various other properties encompasses fewer than 300 acres (as opposed to WDW's 47 sq miles), isolation, or even the sense of it, from any point on DLR property is pretty much outside the realm of possibility.

Yeah, it's not isolated at all. It does have nice grounds that are a bit of a buffer, but nothing close to WDW. You can have views of either downtown disney or the california adventure park, which might give more of a disney feeling.

I can totally understand this cynderella. I guess I thought DL was able to camaflouge the resort a little better with trees or something ? Disney can be really imaginative sometimes with working the "smoke and mirror" illusions. I knew DL was much smaller though but thanks for the exact difference in size. I guess there's only so much they can do.

My DH and I are booked to stay at AKL in August...our second stay at AKL. We stayed on the Arusha (sp?) Savana last time and the room was plenty big!

This time Concierge, probably will get one of those tiny Deluxe Rooms. :rotfl:

Great pictures--thanks for sharing them!

Disney's DVC resorts really are pretty. They do such a nice job with the decor. We've tried Hilton Head Island and OKW (on cash--we're not members), and they were both very nice. I will say that OKW's decor isn't as nice as these pics of SSR and BWV. The rooms at OKW are larger, but I prefer the nicer decor of these pics over the larger room (of course, we don't have kids yet, so I might feel differently once we have kiddos :teeth: ).

We love the light and airy feel of OKW :cool1: True the rooms are larger...but so are the balconies. Our whole family can sit out and have dinner. Couldn't do that during our BWV stay.

nice big balcony at OKW :

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid191/p8c1e13d95ee3d2631690e5233dcfd717/f1e3225b.jpg
We also prefer the 2 queen beds in the second bedroom vs the 1 queen and 1 full size sleeper as with other DVC resorts.
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid191/pc2cf17769bb86198797d2a7d4d677633/f1e32225.jpg

also prefer the OKW kitchen because it's more open and feels more roomy/large than the other DVC resorts kitchens'.

Those who have stayed on the first floor of any of these resorts, is it noisy and do you really have privacy? I would love to try but these 2 things have stopped me. Getting a bad case of arthiritis in my knees and so I really don't care to walk up the stairs.
This is really a great idea for a site!!! I have wanted to try some other places. This gives me an idea of what to expect. Thanks!!!! pixiedust:

i just last week stayed in two first-floor rooms at CBR [conjoining rooms] and we experienced no noise at all. we were supposed to have water view but ended up facing another building in jamaica where we stayed, but there was no noise no matter what time of day!

Wonderful pics everyone! I'm loving the GF ones--we'll be there for half of our trip this November/December, and the pics get me even more excited!

POFQ looks really pretty too! It's on our list of choices for March 2007. But it's not like we plan in advance or anything. :teeth: ;) :blush:

I'm really disappointed in myself!!! I meant to take pictures of the room we had in the Disneyland Hotel, but I left my camera in another bag and by the time I got it the rooms were thrashed :rotfl: After that I just forgot. However, the rooms were really nice a pretty big. The enetrtainment center had a T.V. and a separate cabinet that opened to a mini-fridge. We had connecting rooms, one with a "day-bed" (more of a big couch) and one that was standard. We also had a nice view of the fireworks. Sorry for no pics :guilty:

The Grand Californian shortly after it opened. We had a standard view which was fine. It was the Monorail courtyard. The Monorail went by our room about 20 feet away. We could see through a gap in the couryard to Downtown Disney.

Not right now, but it seems to be the way they are headed whenever they rehab a deluxe resort. For example, the Polynesian, Contemporary, and Wilderness Lodge have all gotten them in their recent renovations. My guess (and it's just a guess) is that they will leave the regular TVs in the other deluxe rooms until they do a complete rehab of each resort's rooms.

This is so helpful! - We are honeymooning in October at POR - now I can see what the rooms look like in Oak Manor- teh web site only shows alligator Bayou rooms. Does anyone have pics of Magnolia terrace or parterre Place? Are those rooms the same at Oak manor? It's our honeymoon so we would like a romantic setting, however I couldn't justify spending big bucks on a Deluxe resort. After all it is WDW so we will be out and about MOST of the time. :blush:
Any suggestions would be great

PottersMom,

The one time I have stayed at POR we were in the Alligator Bayou section, so that's all I have pictures of in terms of the rooms. I'm sure someone here can help you out with pictures of the various mansions though!

I will say that we loved POR. The theming is wonderful, and the whole resort has such beautiful landscaping. It feels very relaxing and we can't wait to try it again. It's a great way to have a romantic trip but still save a little in terms of the budget. Just in case you didn't know, you can reserve a king bed room at POR for an extra $10 per night--well worth the extra cost on your honeymoon in my opinion. We had a king bed room in Alligator Bayou, and it made the room seem so much larger.

...I have only 2 complaints about DxL (...sorry, :confused3 old habits die hard!):
1) I didn't care for the narrow shelf above the sink - not enough space (for ME, anyway!) to put all your 'personals'
2) the winding walkways were very confusing - especially at night!

Wow, the Contemporary now looks, well, very comtemporary. I stayed there at the last renovation(sigh) I had connecting rooms with my sister and the paint was so fresh we had to break the seal between the rooms. Were those pics of a tower room?

Sarah, don't know if you were talking about my pictures, but yes mine were from Tower Magic Kingdom view room 4245 My laying in the bed closest to the window you could look out and see the castle. My son just loved it. Our stay there was one of his birthday presents.
If you have any questions, just ask.

BeckWhy, those pictures are of the Yacht Club. I've got some of the Beach Club too--I'll have to go dig those up and post them.

Cinderella Fan, thanks for sharing those pictures! We'll be trying the SLC at the Grand Floridian for the first time this December, and your pictures made me even more excited! Did you like having a dormer room?

You don't have to dig them up if you don't want too. I just think the rooms that are decorated like that are lovely. I've seen the rooms from BC, so ya know.. save you some time or something. :)

Diane, thanks for those pictures of the new Contemporary rooms. I think they look great! Since they are new, you don't get to see that many pictures of them, so thanks again for sharing.

Trini, if you go to this thread, it has answers to many FAQ's, including how to upload and post pictures. You can either put the pictures into your signature (to show every time you make a post--like the one of my at the bottom of this post), or if you just want to post the pictures to one topic (like room pictures to this thread) you can just follow the same instructions but put the picture links into your reply instead of your signature. Hope that helps! :) http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2770

I read somewhere that Disney is positioning the Contemporary as more geared toward business travelers and the Polynesian as more geared toward family vacationers. Given that, I think the new decor at the CR is probably a good choice. It was pretty "busy" before, and now it's much more muted. It reminds me of W or Westin hotels, and that's probably a good thing in convention/business travelers' minds. I had never really wanted to try the CR with the old decor (just not my taste), but now I'm game! :)

They are rehabbing the 14th floor right now. I'm not sure when it's supposed to be done, but I would guess in the next several months. I can't wait to see what they do with it!

The bed was really comfy. Sorta made me not want to get out of it, which is really funny because this trip we spent less time in the beds then any other trip. Oh well such is life. It was our son's 10th birthday and we had lots of surprises planned and they were usually early in the am.

Sorry! those most certainly were your pictures I posted about.(I could have been a little less vague :surfweb: My mommy-brain gets me at the best of times.

We are also huge fans of the Contemporary, the room size and the view is what lures me in.

Ok, the truth is the monorail...... I've wanted to stay in that resort because of the momorail since I was a small child...And it's as wonderful as I always imagined it to be!! Ha!

Our next trip in October we will be at OKW in 2Br. Anyone have any pictures to share?

The suites at the Contemporary are all located on the 14th floor. There are a few regular concierge rooms on that floor as well (half of which have MK views and half of which have Bay Lake views). They have now made the Atrium Club full-service concierge (currently located on the 10th floor during renovations, but I understand it will be moved back to the 12th floor when they are done). Again, half of these look at the MK and half look at Bay Lake. They haven't finished renovating the 14th floor suites yet, but someone did post a picture of a renovated wing building suite on this thread earlier. I would imagine the general decor would be similar.

I stayed at the Contemporary concierge on the 12th floor. The view of the magic kingdom was awesome. Just got home Sunday!!

The rooms were all newly renovated. ...we were the first people staying in our room. It had just opened up again.

The decor is identical to the photo posted earlier from the wing building. (Back on the first few pages...not the recent one on page 29ish) Can you believe I didn't take any pics??? ARRRRRR The rooms are beautiful. Fancy but functional. Free internet, not just a connection but a computer!!!

The whole experience was awesome!!!!

We must have similar resort taste--we also stayed in one of the honeymoon suites at the GF RPC! I have a hard time picking my favorite of the two. DH liked the garden suite better than RPC. I loved being in the main building at the GF, so it's a tough call for me. I'd love to go back to either one! I do think the garden suites are a little bit better deal though--they are much larger than the GF honeymoon rooms. Did #1207 have a garden or was that one of the ones with a balcony and no garden? I've heard that the ones with no balcony are larger, but I like the little garden.

We must have similar resort taste--we also stayed in one of the honeymoon suites at the GF RPC! I have a hard time picking my favorite of the two. DH liked the garden suite better than RPC. I loved being in the main building at the GF, so it's a tough call for me. I'd love to go back to either one! I do think the garden suites are a little bit better deal though--they are much larger than the GF honeymoon rooms. Did #1207 have a garden or was that one of the ones with a balcony and no garden? I've heard that the ones with no balcony are larger, but I like the little garden.

We must be vacation twins! :lmao:

#1207 was a suite with a balcony, which I prefered over the loft style. When we first checked in, we were told that #1215 was the only one clean, but it was fartherest away, but we took it. When we had unpacked and settled in, DF went downstairs to set the AC, it was leaking out from under the stairs. The carpet was soaked!! So, we called the front desk and was moved into #1207, which we loved. The ceiling in the LR was lower, of course, but the bedroom was much bigger!

I don't know which I like better, either. The room in RPC is smaller, but the Garden Suite is a hike and a half to the lounge.... It just depends on what type of vacation you want to have, I guess.... :blush:

BTW, what time in December will you be at the GF? We will be in RPC for the week of our wedding.... :wizard:

You're right about the LONG hike to the lounge from the garden suite! I have since heard that there is a back stairway that leads right up to the lounge area--whenever we get to stay there again I'm definitely going to ask about that so we can save some walking, LOL.

We'll be at Disney Nov. 26 - Dec. 2, and at the GF for the second half of that (Nov. 29 - Dec. 2). We're trying the Sugar Loaf Concierge this time (couldn't swing RPC this time around).

I just found this thread and thought I'd contribute some pics from my last stay. OK, they aren't room pics, but it was the view from our room, overlooking the lobby!

We found that stairway, thanks to Denny, one of the Concierge. However, you still have to hoof it up 3 levels of stairs, as you can't come in on another floor.... :rolleyes: So, either way, it was still a hike... :teleport: Our 1207 was directly under the lounge...go figure... ;)

When we went to GF a few weeks ago, we started out in SL. Had we never stayed in RPC, it probably wouldn't have been a big deal, but, IMHO, it just didn't compare. But, we had a terrible experience, so that probably put a damper on it. I hope you have better luck! It was just SOOOOO crowded in the lounge, it was hard to even get around. I think you're stay will be much better, though! :wave2:

I just read through all 33 pages in one setting!!! I had never thought of POR, but those pictures look great! And I'm in love with the Deluxes!!!

We're staying at the Pop Century as part of our "research" trip, but my personal favorite is the Wilderness Lodge.

I saw furnishings from the Polynesian and Wilderness Lodge on eBay and was seriously tempted. If they ever rehab the Boardwalk Inn and auction the current decor, I'll be bidding for sure!

RPC stands for Royal Palm Club. It's the concierge level inside the main building at the GF. There is also lodge concierge called Sugar Loaf Concierge. Hope that helps! :)

What are the perks of the RPC, nicer rooms? Snacks? The room pic looks absolutely gorgeous, what a dream!

Thanks!

The main building has regular rooms, honeymoon/deluxe rooms, and various suites. The regular rooms in the RPC are the same as the rest of the GF rooms. Essentially you get the following things when you stay concierge level:

--pre-planning assistance: the concierge staff can make advanced dining reservations, tours, fireworks cruises, etc. for you. They can also help to arrange having things in your room when you arrive. For example, they could have a Pal Mickey waiting when you check in (you would pay for the Pal Mickey). This service can be very helpful. They are generally very good about getting hard to get reservations like Cinderella's breakfast if they have 90 days notice, but it's still not a guarantee.

--on-site assistance: the concierge staff is also available once you check in to help you with any last minute arrangements.

--lounge food offerings: the concierge lounges at Disney's resorts offer food service throughout the day. It's not a meal replacement plan (except for maybe at breakfast), but it's nice to have some midday snacks, evening hors devours, and cordials and desserts later in the evening. At the GF RPC they also offer afternoon tea with scones. We enjoy having a little something to snack on occasionally, so we like this offering. It's not a meal replacement though.

--private access: the GF RPC levels are key card protected, so non RPC guests can't access those floors. At some Disney resorts concierge is in a separate building (like at the Poly). This makes some people feel more secure.

Hope that helps! :)

This thread has been wonderful! The pictures are awesome. Thanks so much to everyone for sharing!

My hubby and I are planning a last minute trip to Disney in December to celebrate our five year anniversary. We had hoped to rent points for a DVC stay however; it seems we are a bit late in the game for that. I am trying to sell the idea of springing for the extra cash and staying at the Dolphin. Anyone have any pictures of the renovated rooms at the Dolphin? That would really help our decision making!
Again, thanks for posting all the great pictures! Wonderful idea for a thread!

Her room was one of the honeymoon turret rooms in the main building. It does have concierge access.
