I received a pin for 35% off the WL in September 2013. Right now we are holding a standard room. Is courtyard view worth the extra money??

LOL! That pic is awesome. When I 1st read your post it was on my Iphone and for some reason this was the only picture that was showing... so for a second I thought you were serious. This is exactly what I was hoping not to see. Thanks so much for the pics and managing these WL threads. They have made my trip planning so much easier and more fun!!

For our upcoming trip we were thinking we would walk over to the Fort to look at all of the Christmas displays and decorations I keep hearing about. I wanted to book a sleigh ride but could not figure out when would be a good time BUT, we will have a rental car. Can you drive thru the campgrounds?? This is one of the only things I haven't planned/thought through all the way.

We got the same pin! Right now we are booked in a standard room for 8 nights, but we are considering switching to a Disney cruise

Sure hope we get a discount too

Mind you, we'll go anyway but it means more money to spend on other stuff...

Like the extra little trip to Paris and Disneyland end of november
We were talking about going somewhere chrismassy for the weekend and then hubby says why don't we go to Disney? only 3,5 hours by train and when I wnet to look how much that would be: a special sale with discounts of 50% valid for four more hours. So we immediatly booked

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh, life is good

I am not sure about a car, but what we are doing instead of the sleigh ride is renting a golf cart at FW. The rental is for 24 hours (although we will just use It for a few hours) and costs about $65 including tax. You can reserve them ahead of time by calling 407-824-2742.

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.
Thanks, I was thinking inner courtyard. I will call when the systems are back up and running to make my request

Welcome, chimommy. Only from a Woods View room on an upper floor in the North Wing can you really see Bay Lake. The trees obscure much of the lake from most Woods View rooms. BTW, there isn't a bookable Water or Lake View at WL, but if you book a Courtyard View and request INNER or WL, then you will have a view of Bay Lake, if your request is met.

I think so, as long as it's an INNER Courtyard View. Those rooms look into the WL courtyard, geyser, pool and Bay Lake. There are PA annoucements and music in the late afternoon at the pool party for 2-3 hours, but with your door closed, it's not bad at all.

The view is amazing:

I know that if you have a cabin you obviously have to drive to it, but I don't know if they allow guests without a FW reservation

Inner courtyard is what I would request and a high floor.

Thanks, I will keep trying once the system comes back up. I thought it was weird that ALL of Disney would be booked, but figured it was just my luck and the holiday weekend. It would have summed up the month I'm having Hoping for luck tomorrow!

You can drive over to and through the campground but may we suggest riding the boat over so you can leisurely stroll around and look or rent the golf cart as OP suggested. There are decorations to be seen near Trails End and hoop Dee Doo that may be missed if only driving your car around the campground.

if you recently received at 35% off pin... how were you notified? Is it worth calling to see if I have a pin attached to my name?
