The two girls on our ride were very nice and loooove horses and told a lot of stories about the different horses that they have at WDW. So I bet she would love talking to them. I have no idea if doing the last ride of the morning might give her more of a chance to talk to them, but it's a possibility.

Can anyone go up to the roof or is it just for the flag family?

Only flag family and cast members are allowed to go up to the roof. Sorry. You actually have to go to the Club Level to get to the stair case that goes up to the roof.

We are making our first trip to Disney in may of 09. It will be me, dh, and dd21,dd8 and dd 23 mnths. We are being joined by my sister and s-mom. Should we stay in a deluxe room and enjoy the club level or stay in 2 standards room (no club level)? You all seem to be the WL experts so I would like your opinions!

Hi DisneyMom09,

First of all congrats on your first Disney trip.Once you go to Disney you will be hooked for life!!!! As far as your room choice I think it depends on a couple of things. Sometimes its nice to have a little space when you go vacation with family members(sister and s-mom) --hence 2 seperate standard rooms. However if you get along well and that is not a problem the CL at WL is really wonderful. Even though a deluxe is more $ than 2 standard per night I think you would make it up with the breakfast alone for 6 ppl. The breakfast offered is a light fare but so convienent. And its not even that light--bagels, muffins, coffee, cereal, danish--ect. It was perfect for my family. I figured that was a savings of at least 30 - 40 a day for breakfast alone. Plus they have different offerings depending on the time of day. There is a detailed listing on page 1 of this thread. They also having a detailed listing on pg 1 of this thread of room sizes and locations. It has a wealth of info and might help you in your decision. Hope this helps a little. Good luck with your planning.

Thanks Jeanne! That's a shame - I'd love to see the view from up there. Never mind, I'm sure there'll be a thousand other beautiful views to enjoy!

Goodness...that was so long ago. Now I have 192 days.

But looking on the bright side, at least I'm going!!

No triple-digit tango though? Could anyone stand that many dancing anythings?

I think we are going to have to downgrade from CL . I really don't want to, but I just can't figure out how to come up with that extra $1200 and I would rather stay in another WL room, then not be able to stay at the WL at all.

Please make me feel better about changing it

Hey Suzanne,

O.K. first of all I was looking at your ticker and it looks like you are staying at WL at Christmas time. That is so amazing in itself!!!!I have never been at Christmas and from everyones pictures it just looks beautiful.( I always wanted to stay at Christmas time but would never be able to have my act together to do Christmas and Disney--Im just not that organized) And Secondly dont be upset because you dont really spend too much time in the room anyway. I think the most beautiful part of that resort is the amazing lobby and the beautiful grounds. The parks as well as the resorts are going to be so well decorated and you will be so busy you're just going to the room to pass out at night! And with all thats going on in the economy, saving the 1200 is a big plus. Hope you feel better about it.

PrincessSuzanne--You've stayed there a couple of times before. Was it concierge then? If not, didn't you have a great time those couple of trips? I am going in July and I can't wait. I just have a standard room but still excited. And look at it this way, you have a reason to plan your next trip now--to stay concierge! Have a great trip!

I was so excited to get a call from my AAA agent today. My travel docs are there! She is putting them in the mail to me today.

I now have a box sitting in the spare bedroom to collect the items we are going to ship down. Ugh, this next month better go quickly!!!
