Thank you, jecskc for posting your photos of VWL. I'm going to add a link to your photos in the VWL section on the first page

Lots and lots of stress with the moving, but getting to walk into the Lodge in just about a month is going to make the whole world right again.
How exciting, but you have a lot on your plate right now. You'll feel much more relaxed once you arrive back home at WL

It's the last section of the first page of the thread. I list who will being staying at WDW and their dates. It's purely voluntary and you don't even have to be staying at WL, but most are. I'll add you, too

Couple of room questions. We are finally less then 60 days out so I have started thinking about packing! What are the hair dryers in the room like. Are they real dryers or on the wall Holiday Inn Express-like. I try not to have to pack one if I don't have to. Also what about outlets. Are there a decent number that are easy to get to. Like every one else we have a million electronic devices and wondering if bringing a power strip is worth it. Thanks!

We didn't use the hair dryer, but it wasn't on the wall, it was in a bag under the sink.

As for outlets, we found there were plenty for the iPad, 2 iPhones, an iPod touch and a laptop...

Alright all my WL experts....need some advice. We recently had to change our reservation dates and were not able to get the same woods view room and instead are booked in a courtyard view. It was worth the upcharge to make the dates work for us. But now my room location request doesn't apply and I need to know what I should be asking for. Any suggestions for BB CV room locations?

So sad...DH and I decided that we'd make a quickie trip next month when we were already scheduled to be off for a long weekend. Went to book the WL and couldn't figure why it was sold-out. And then realized ALL of Disney was sold-out. Yep, Veterans Day weekend and end of F&W. So, no trip for us!

Try again tomorrow night when the system comes back up. I tried 3 times to move my WL trip and twice WL showed as sold out, 3rd time it finally popped up! Good luck!!!

We love the inner courtyard view. We had one with bunkbeds on the sixth floor of the south wing, I think the room was 6157. Fantastic view! You could see from the lobby area on the left to the lake on the right. Also, you could see the top of the Contemporary (California Grill). Only "complaint" was having loud people in the pool after midnight. I used it as an excuse to sit out on the balcony on watch their shenanigans.

JK, those are in the bathroom next to ol' River Country. Here are the ones at WL:



It's located underneath the sink:




There are plenty of outlets. The table in the room has a power strip on top (behind that card):

Don't give-up, they aren't at 100% occupancy. Keep checking online after tonight
