I haven't seen a building plan and am wondering how many elevators there are. It looks like the halls will be very long, and I'm hoping there are elevators near the ends of the building. Does anyone know?

Looks like there will be 2 sets of three elevators. Each set appears to be about half way from the center of the resort to the far end of the hallway.

Hope that's how it is.... not like BWV... my last stay, i had the room at the very end... like a 2 mile walk from the elevator banks. :headache:

It certainly seems that far, doesn't it? The same was true for me at AKL. I was at the very end of one of the trails, and it was nearly 1/2 mile (according to my pedometer) to the front door of the Lodge. I was tired of walking way before I got to the parks :eek:

If you look at the building (the side that faces Seven Seas Lagoon and the monorail, not Bay Lake) you'll see two rounded glass areas that stretch the height of the building and have funny little "caps" that stick up above the roofline. These are the elevator banks.

What I don't know is if there's a side entrance that has access to the parking lot from there on the outside of the "C". I imagine that on the inside of the "C" where the pool and recreation area is, there will be a keyed entrance at both elevator banks.

I have been at the end of BWV, AKV and VWL - the worst was VWL because every morning at 4 am the trash trucks came.

BLT MK view for ME!!!! No more long halls! LOL
