I've booked April 30 and May 1 2010 at the 40% off and we're in a standard room/standard view and I'm paying $216/night including tax.

This will be our first time at WL and we're excited! I do have a question though since we have no experience at this resort.

Are the bunkbed rooms a specific category? Or do I have a chance at getting one in a standard room? Is it a request? Or do I pay more at booking?

Any help would be great. Thanks!

Bunkbeds is a seperate, bookable category. Unfortunately, there are no standard view BB rooms. The least expensive way to get a bunkbed room is to book a Woodsview bunkbed room.

Thank you! I think I'll look into how much that would be to upgrade.

We have stayed at the WLV and the Poly on separate stays. I actually think they have a lot in common for what we like.

in common:
great themeing and ambience
very quiet resort area even when busy
feeling of being far away and relaxing to go back to beautiful resort
on a lake and offers boat rentals for extra fun
lots of great restaurants IN the hotel
easy to get to luau and hoop de doo (easiest of all resorts)
great room themeing and remodeled with flat panel tvs
easier bus transportation IMHO than the mods and others
Elec water pageant goes by each night
they have a beach and boat transportation
(we were in the villas so our rooms varied...but the reg rooms are pretty !!)

differences:
room size
themeing - just depends on what you want

so...its whether you want Hawaii or the woods....I honestly love both !!

good luck !(yes different sizes)

Looks like you are going when we are planning on going...But I'm still holding out for a deal. I'm pretty sure I'll go with WL - I have to try it at least once, right???

We've always wanted to stay at the Poly and one year we decided to spend the extra money and go for it .......until we noticed that they don't have a hot tub! I know that might not be important to everyone but when we come back from a day in the parks the first thing I want to do is get changed and relax in the hot tub, even if it's 90+ degrees outside. I keep hoping that one day they'll add one at the Poly but until they do I just have to enjoy our visits to Ohana!

Ya know it wasn't that important to us, until we had the luxury of the hot tub at the end of the day. It was fantastic!

For a Standard room, ask for 6th floor. Then you will most likely get a view of Wishes. :-)

Enjoy!

This is the info I have from the cake chatter thread- as I was not sure about where and what days we would be getting our cake(s) - ahem!

WL bakery Director is Chef Eddie Lancier-- call the WL, ask for private dining and then ask for Chef Lancier... I would bet that they will be very helpful in your needs, custom cake or standard.

Good Luck!

(if this doesnt pan out for you, feel free to PM me as I have also been stalking the cake thread for months)

We booked our next trip to WL a couple of weeks ago as I got the Buy 5/get 2 Free pin, but last night I got the 40% off pin and my TA was able to apply it to save us an additional $260+ Can't wait to go "home" it's been too long!

a bit of an odd question I suppose...

I plan to have many stops to the Terr Lounge in the evenings or afternoons while at the pool during our stay for some much loved Ice wine, last year the baby was only 10 months and preferred me to Daddy, this year he is much more independent-- so I plan to enjoy a glass (or several).
So do I have to stay in the lounge? or can I get my glass of wine and sit in the lobby by the tree or the firplaces or near the pool if the family is swimming? (ohh does the pool bar have Ice wine too?)
If I have to stay in the lounge, then maybe I would rather by a bottle from PD and keep it in my room?
