Last March, the DVC Villas did not have a radio with an Iphone charging doc I don't know why, if maybe they are not replacing them once they brake or disappear. I would take a charger just in case.

So Kook, if I understanding that map correctly, the CL rooms are sort of "clustered" around the courtyard????
CL rooms have WL courtyard view, VWL courtyard views and Woods views. The CL rooms just don't extend out past about Roaring Fork like floors 1-6 do.

Appreciate any advice!
Whatever you do, make sure that your request for a rehabbed room is in your reservation now. You won't be able to add room requests to OCI. For your dates, a rehabbed room would be in the North Wing (with bunks).

Doing OCI will NOT void or erase your room request as long as it's in your reservation, the room assignor will see it. When you check-in, ask if you are in a rehabbed room and if you aren't, ask if there might be one available.

Hi, I've been reading this thread this week to learn more about staying at the WL for a possible August 2013 trip. So far I'm just on page 32. I'm already familiar with the lodge itself as Artist Point is one of our two favorite WDW restaurants (Flying Fish is the other). You're so right about the WL decorations at Christmas. I keep an 8x10 of my DH and I taken by a Photo Pass photographer in front of their main Christmas tree during our December 2010 trip framed & displayed on a table in our bedroom.

Thanks for organizing this thread and for the great information that is kept current on page 1. Are all of the rooms in the North Wing now rehabbed or just certain floors or areas?

You're welcome and to the thread, Kathy Z! We were also at WL (and CR) during Christmas 2010, maybe our paths crossed. Currently, floor 5 is being rehabbed. Floors 6 and 7 (CL) have been rehabbed in the North Wing.

Does the WL have cabana rentals at the pool? I don't think they do, but maybe with this refurb, that may be something they're going to add.....????

Also, will all the club level rooms be rehabbed by August 4th?

Thank you!

You're right, as of now, only the monorail resorts have cabana rentals, scanne. The South Wing's 7th floor is slated to be completed July 27th, so they should be working on the 6th floor August 4th. I hope you have a great stay at the OFC and POR. Are you in a Royal Room?

We are 73 days away from our first CL stay and I'm growing more and more excited by the minute! We booked this stay after our 180 mark so no email for our requests I would like to put in a request for a room with a fireworks view. Do these exist on the CL floor? Any specific room numbers I should hope for?
We are also staying in a deluxe room in December. Do any of these rooms have a view of fireworks? If so any specific room/floor I should add to my request? I just received my request form for our Dec trip and want to put as much info on it as I can
I was going to request Hoop De Doo but read the dinner show is unavailable I hope that changes but I'm not holding out much hope!

And last question, the north wing is the side facing MK right? Thanks so much guys! I have said before and will say it again, this is such a friendly and incredibly helpful thread!

Villas of Ft. Wilderness?

Since we're neighbors with Ft. Wilderness - HOWDY, neighbor, I thought I should post the link to the latest information (from April) on the possible Ft. Wilderness DVC construction. While the construction hasn't begun yet, as it has on the GF DVC, Disney re-filed (they originally filed in 2010/11) the paperwork necessary to build a construction staging area. The first link includes a 2011 blueprint/plan. From this plan, it seems the Tri-Circle-D Ranch buildings will have to be relocated and the shoreline near the marina could be re-shaped to include a parking lot.

If you read the FW DVC speculation in the links below, you might want to keep in mind this comment that appears in the second link:

Re: Some movement on Fort Wilderness project -- wdrl
Wednesday, 04 April 2012 19:08

I'm a little skeptical whether the activity at Fort Wilderness signals the start of a DVC resort project. In October 2010, when Disney filed paperwork entitled East Parcel Development Project (EPDP) with the South Florida Water Management District, it was to move the stables, blacksmith operations, and some other structures from the north end of the FTW complex to the south end. This places these items closer to the main road, giving Disney easier and more direct access to the stables. Superficially, relocating these operations to the south end of FTW makes sense; it doesn't necessarily mean that they were pushed out of their current locations because of a DVC project.

Also in 2010, Disney expanded its facilities at the STOLport location, which houses several construction trailers. The original EPDP included permit requests for expanding STOLport, and so, too, did Project 2011-1, which we now know is the Villas at Grand Floridian project. The only permits that were recently filed -- at least those that are available on the SFWMD public website -- involve an expansion of the STOLport complex. By itself, it doesn't mean that Disney plans to build a DVC resort at FTW.
