Just spoke to the sweetest CM....DH & I are booked for a standard King at WL in September!!
I mentioned to her that I'm gluten free & although I really wont need it, she put in the system to have the room "medically" cleaned prior to us checking in. That's pretty cool!!!

You will love WL...it's my son's favorite resort. We love the theme, the landscape, the restaurants, the pool....can't say enough positive things about the resort. Hope you have a fabulous trip!

I don't fully understand. Please, someone explain, how is your gluton allergy have anything to do with the room being "medically-cleaned". It isn't as if you are going to lick the tables right?

Yes- I would imagine the room being "medically" cleaned is more meant for someone with a peanut allergy....But it was a nice gesture, and I couldnt say no.
Hey, maybe someone was playing with flour or playdoh in the room before me...then I would really want it cleaned ceiling to floor.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm also gluten-intolerant, and other than a kitchen (with lots of flour that can get into nooks and crannies), I cannot imagine needed a special "medical" cleaning.

Honestly, I'd probably refuse it - the chemicals used for this cleaning, are probably more potentially harmful than the risk of gluten in a hotel room!

Yeah, but now that you have "medically cleaned" attached to your reservation notes you're stuck in the room that they've prepared for you. so if you don't like the location or whatever they're not going to move you until the next day (when they can again prepare a medically clean room).
so, while it's nice that they offered it to you, I think it's one of those things I would have declined unless absolutely needed. I'd be afraid of being stuck in a crappy room

Congratulations! I think you will love WL! We have stayed there twice and while we're staying at the Poly for our April trip, I'm feeling a little wistful that I won't be at WL. Enjoy your trip. :cloud9:

As for the room being medically cleaned, the CM is the one who suggested it, not the OP, and I don't think it's a big deal. :confused3

We stayed at WL Feb 5-12 and there were peanuts on the floor and in one of the drawers! I was shocked to find them in plain view (and some in the door area) when I walked into my daughter's room (we traveled with my 22 mo. old grandson so it was upsetting to find these)

Congrats, WL is amazing! I'm staying at the Beach Club in May and I've always wanted to stay there and I'm really excited about it...but I'm tempted every once in a while to change back to WL, just because I loved it there so much! :)

HIIIII!!!!!!! Omg yay!!!! I've been on here for years! But I don't post too much. I used to post under a different name and I had a few hundred but nothing crazy haha like over you-know-where!!!! SO EXCITED YOU BOOKED WL!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!!!!!

Have you thought about Park/Days and ADRs?? :cool1::cool1::cool1:

I'm definitely more excited about this trip then DH! It took me a while to get him to say yes to going before we have kids - but he'll be happy that i convinced him. The only thing he asked for is that we go to Universal, so we'll be doing that for 1 day of our trip.
I'm realllly excited about the dining - ive read so many good things about the chefs & restaurants dealing with food allergies. So im going to eat myself silly popcorn::popcorn::

So far I'm thinking possible ADRs at: California Grill, Coral Reef, Crystal Palace, 50s Prime Time, Raglan Road, maybe the Luau @the Polynesian

I've been reading up on MNSSHP & hopefully DH will be interested in some candy & night time fun @ MK!

I was told by a friend who interned at Disney that you really only need 1/2 day at AK & HS...so we'll probably only do that much. But we have a 4 day park hopper ticket, so i thnk the 4th day we'll just bounce around to whatever we liked the best.
When i was in Disney as a kid, we didnt go to Epcot - so this will be my very first time there & I'm super excited about that..And I'm sure DH will love all of the beer!
:thumbsup2
You're going to have to give me a full trip report when you get back! And this time you have to stay super healthy! :)

We stayed at WL Feb 5-12 and I just received (postcard) and completed online the survey. I hope I hear back from WDW in regard to the good and negative issues I addressed. (as an aside, there were questions on dining and I had to reply in writing I did ask about the old refillable mugs that were sold as 'for use during all future visits'- I did see some of the old WL mugs and also some that were not sold that way. Since one of the questions pertained to Roaring Forks, I thought it was a great time to ask!)

Congratulations! we are staying there also in August
My husband also i had to beg to go on our first trip last year and not even 3 weeks after returning home we had another trip booked for this August and with the free dining again which he loved. I think your husband will have a better time than he thinks he will. I certainly didnt expect to get the response i did from my husband. You will love the dining plan and its so great not having to put your hand in your wallet constantly.

Yes i agree that DHS is not a full day park. I was there only a few hours and had enough. We are going to AK probably only a few hours this trip.
We may even go to Universal or Seaworld for one day before getting to Disney.

DEFINITELY do Cali Grill, it is the BEST!! Try to time your ADR with Wishes that night so you can watch the fireworks from the restaurant or even out on the viewing area. Amazing! Coral Reef was great too, the aquarium view is spectacular especially if you love marine life/animals. The sea tortoise is HUGE! We had a table right by the glass which was so cool. I've never done Raglan, but we're doing 50's Primetime lunch on this trip. I agree that DHS is not an all day park, but it depends on the times of the shows, etc. DH loves Lights, Motors, Action! so that's a must do...And Toy Story Mania is new and a must do, as well as American Idol Experience! So this trip we got lucky and we have a morning EMH day where we're hoping to get a lot done before our noon lunch ressie, then use our FP's for the afternoon. Because there are new attractions we've never done before this trip will be a longer park day than usual. Never done Crystal Palace, but everyone loves it! It's a great character meal I've heard. We personally don't get much value out of a buffet, so we don't really do them, however we ARE trying Liberty Tree Tavern (now that it's NOT a character meal anymore hahaha) which is family style and supposed to be super yummy! Can't wait for that! The luau sounds awesome! Never did it though. DH is going to have a BLAST! You both are going to LOVE EPCOT!! Make sure you go through World Showcase at night, it is just breathtaking. Also as far ask AK, it is DEF a half day park for sure. If there happens to be a morning EMH day when you're there, my best advice is to take it. Get there early so you can get in RIGHT at 8:00 am, and go STRAIGHT for Kilamanjaro Safari. You ride the safari first thing, before all the lines, and there are SO many animals out because they feed them in the early morning hours. Then we go straight for Expedition Everest! Ride it, grab a FP then head over to Dinosaur. Then we eat lunch at Flame Tree BBQ YUM! Best CS ever! Then use our EE FP and we are outta here! We will also walk the Maharaja Jungle Trek if we like, that's always nice after lunch. But we're going in June with temps in the 90's so we don't stay long at AK. You should definitely do It's Tough to Be a Bug, it's cute and fun. I have ONE secret ADR planned for our last night that Mike doesn't know about! We've used all our DDP credits, so I'm going to pay OOP, but we're doing Jiko at AKL! I'm SO excited for this. I've ALWAYS wanted to check out the Lodge, and the restaurants. I can't can't wait for this last night signature surprise! Woohoo!!
