A little differnece in the bus stops

Magicinmyheart - I don't know if this was just for our week, but there were a few differences in the bus sharing when we were there 2/2-2/9.

Just like you have posted, WL shared with GF to go to the AK. However, we also shared with GF when going to DTD. We went to DTD 3-4 times during our trip, and this was the case every time. The bus stops at DTD also had these stops together - WL & GF.

We only shared with FW when we went to DHS. We did not share with any other resort when going to Epcot, and the bus was only half full. We were there for rope drop, so I was expecting the bus driver to stop.

Maybe someone else has some insight into this as well. Hope this helps.

I always add this to my post changes happen all the time. February is a Off Peak time and I'm sure Disney trys to balance the expense of operating their buses whenever possible.

From page 1 *NOTE: With Disney’s On Demand Service Bus Service the routes may change at anytime, during Peak and Off Peak Seasons the routes may also be changed. The above routes I have posted are the routes that have been used on 99% of my visits to the Wilderness Lodge and The Villas @ Wilderness Lodge. I have also encountered new bus drivers that have taken creative liberties with the routes and correct order of each location.

The information I post is to give someone not familiar with the bus systems an idea of how they normally run, while also telling everyone that they can and do change.

Thanks for posting your experiences it shows that they do change routes all during the year. It's great to receive as much information as we can to help guest staying at the Lodge during the year.

Hi Everyone!!! It's been quite a while since I posted..very busy with school..but I am almost done!! While we won't make it to the WL this year, because of some other home improvement issues we would like to take care of, we are planning at 2 week vacation the last two weeks of August in 2009, of course the concierge level I'm just reading now to get my fix..cuz it looks like this will be the only way I can "be" at the WL..without "being" at the WL..vicariously through you all

It's good to see you post it has been awhile. Two weeks OMG you'll be able to get a list of everything they offer at Club Level along with some great photo's. Don't forget to ask about Flag Family you shouldn't have any trouble being first on the list if you are staying that long. Don't stay away too long.

Our stay was fantastic. We loved the boat, and Samuel (DS5) LOVED the geyser.

Just a few pics from the resort.

BTW, we're heading back to the WL next February.
Oooh what beautiful pictures!! May I ask what type of room you had i.e. standard, courtyard, woods, etc??

From the view - I guess inner courtyard. But all the rooms look alike inside, except for bunkbeds/king bed differences (and deluxe rooms are different-sure would like to see one of those)

Yes, it's a Inner Courtyard View room South Wing 4th floor. Click on the link below it is a map, while not 100% correct it will give you an idea of how the Lodge is laid out.

Thank you so much for this thread. I am considering the WL for our 2009 trip. In respect to the "Bear Face Rooms", do you have to go through the lobby to the pool? How far away is the pool? Thanks!

Is this true?

I was just over at www.allearsnet.com and was checking out the WL reviews. Someone posted that they never took the bus because a boat would take you to Epcot and MGM Studios?!? Is that correct?

Nope, the only boat service is to the Magic Kingdom and the Contemporary.

No, that is not correct. You could take the boat to the Contemporary to get the monorail to Epco - but I believe you have to switch monorails. There is no direct way to get to Studio's - you would have to take a bus.
