Rennovations at Wilderness Lodge? Also, AKL vs WL?

Weren't they renovating the room at WL lately? Is that finished by now? Anywhere I can to see pictures of the new look?

Also, we are booking either AKL or WL. We have stayed at AKL, but never WL. We LOVED AKL so I'm thinking maybe we should stick with that, but then I think it would also be nice to be closer to magic kingdom and try a new resort.

We will be booking club level either way, so if anyone can comment on the concierge lounge at either, that would be helpful as well.

Yup, renovations are all done at WL. IMHO, the rooms look beautiful and are a huge improvement over the old decor. Here of some of our pics from July. We were on CL and LOVED it!

Hope that helps!

Which view did you have? Is there any way to word a request to possibly get the bit of castle view? Gosh, I'd love that. Beautiful. (room looks nice too )

I believe if you book a woods view, and request an upper floor overlooking otter pond, that could lead to the view.

We were on CL, so you can't book a particular view....I would honestly say that where we were located would be considered a standard view, as if you looked down, we were over that smokehouse thing described on page 1 of the WL thread. NO matter, who looks down??? Looking out was gorgeous!

Oh my goodness, I think I'd be giddy with delight if I came into my room and saw that view. Of course even seeing the castle in pictures makes the 7 year old girl in me squeal a little.

I'm not going to lie....I said Good Morning and Good Night to the castle every day. We watched it change colors at night...you could see the monorail going by underneath...and we even watched Wishes....best.room.ever.

Thanks for the replies. The pictures really help. The new rooms look gorgeous. Now just to decide if we stick with AKL since we know we love it, or try something new!

Did you end up trying WL?

I am on the same boat (no pun intended!) - we have been to AKL 2x and LoVE it. I am considering WL for our sept oct trip but I'm afraid after AKL we will be dissapointed.
I would love to hear what you ended up doing and what your experience was!
