Can't let our thread go to page 2!

Anyway since I have to post...

Anyone have any suggestions about Standard Rooms to request at check-in?

Any info on resort activities (I have heard about a marshmallow roast!)?

Advice for making the trip special with a couple of almost 3 year old cousins meeting for the first time?

Questions of the day:

Is our pas130 packed and ready to leave for her Honeymoon Suite tonight?

Is our TheLodgeLady packed and ready to go to the Old Faithful Club tomorrow?

We're so excited for you both! Please check-in with us if you can and have a safe and easy trip to your Lodge.

I wonder if there's a way you could just upgrade to the 'plus' version of PhotoPass, then all your character meals, rides and even HDDR would be on your CD. I would give them a call and ask, it would be worth the additonal cost. We also received a nice CD with over 400 stock WDW photos with our pre-order.

Thank you for the shameless bump. On the first page, post #9, I have a link to the current activities calendar and I have a list of all the weekly August Movies on the beach. There is also a photo of the marshmallow roast and the current times are listed on the August activities calendar. Though it's a very quick activity, it's so nice they do this and the kids and adults love it. They provide the stick and marshmallow (or two) for free and it's located right behind Trout Pass pool bar on the beach where they show the movies.

There are lots of fun and free activities for the kids. They are listed on the first page and include free activities in the afternoon at the Cub's Den, pool activities in the afternoon, Surrey bike rides, petting zoo at FW, pony rides at FW, stable tour. Having FW right next door is like having two vacations in one!

If you request a "high floor" or "view of Wishes" for your Standard room, you will be able to see some of Wishes. Of course, if you're in a North Wing room when you look down during the day, you'll see the smokehouse and service area/road, but also part of the Otter Pond off to the right and woods straight ahead. I have photos of the view on the first page and also a photo of the outside of the rooms. The South Wing STD rooms don't have a Wishes view. If you do have any room location requests, make sure they're all in your reservation at least 5 days prior to arrival so that the room assignor sees it.

Have a great mini reunion!

Hi All!

Since our group had such a great time at VWL in May...I'm planning a surprise trip for me and hubby in January 7-10.

I was thinking about booking CL. Does anyone know if there are any discounts/offers available for this time? Is it worth it? We aren't planning on doing dining plan this time around since its a quickie trip.

Maybe looking into Poly too?

Good morning Lodgers!

I'm getting there, lol. I just have to "refine" my choices tonight. My DH is pretty much done, although he threw me out of the room while he was packing because I was being a pain in the neck. He told me he could take care of it. I always have to give my 3cents, haha.

Tonight just finishing up and tidying up the house a little. And making sure to give the pups lots of quality time.

Thanks for the good wishes.

Photopass Plus

Kook,

I saw your question about upgrading to photopass plus and wanted to share my recent experience with doing just that.

My trip is not until the end of October. I previously purchased the advance sale photopass CD about 2 months ago. This week, I got to thinking about all the ride pictures and character meal pictures I would like to have and decided I really wanted the photopass plus.

I called the photopass plus number (407) 560-4300 and here is what I learned.

To get the discounted advance sale photopass plus, you must purchase it at least 14 days prior to the trip, because they actually mail you a voucher and a stock images CD prior to your arrival that you must have to obtain the photopass plus card.

They took my previous purchase and turned it into a credit. I then waited a couple of days and logged in and selected to purchase the photopass plus. I then paid the addition $70.

I received a notice that my order had shipped yesterday and will post an update if there is more to share once it gets here.

Anyone doing the movie on the 22nd or 23rd?

We might be there, depending on the kiddies.

This describes me too. I am mostly packed 2 weeks before my trip. It takes me weeks to unpack because I am suffering form post Disney depression.

Cure for Disney depression: my rule .... never leave WDW without having another trip planned and booked is even better!
