Opinions on Roaring Forks for breakfast or lunch? Any thoughts?
I LOVE the banana foster mickey waffles for breakfast!!
Plan to eat quite a few of those, if only they'd serve those for lunch too....

Congrats on booking . There's a good variety, IMO, at Roaring Forks and it's great for breakfast and lunch (dinner, too, if you want something quick ).

I just booked the Cubs Den for my son (3 years and 9 months old) for an evening during our trip. I'm sure he will love it there. He really likes being around other kids. I'm not certain what we are doing that evening but we will let DD16 choose. She is excited to have a night free from her little brother.

One of the last things on my Disney To Do List is to order a 2 tiered mini cake from the Cake Hotline for our anniversary

3 weeks from today we will be checking in at the Wilderness Lodge

Wishing everyone leaving soon a very magical trip! It looks like you may catch some sneak peeks of FLE

As others have said RF is great. The only issue with it is it not large enough. Times when the resort is fully booked RF can be pretty busy. My only advice is to get to RF on the early side if you're trying to get to a park at rope drop. the line gets long and it gets tough to get a table.

Does anyone know if the roof work is complete and are they doing flag family again?

Less than 2 weeks until our trip. I started laying out clothes today

The are free activities from 2:30-4 at the Cub's Den, but they don't accept reservations. Some activities might require a small fee, but I believe that most, if not all are free. They offer small arts and crafts projects, but an adult must be present with the child(ren). They place a sign everyday outside the Cub's Den advertising the activity:



I have more Cub's Den information and a few photos HERE.

No problem and you're not a moron. You can get the soy milk (as pictured on the previous page) from both the Mercantile and the CR, but I didn't see any bottled coffee beverages in the fridge at RF or the Mercantile, but you could ship them. They do have a Nescafe coffee machine at RF.

Exclamation

Here is the link to the October Activities flyer. However, it notes that there is a separate Halloween flyer, but it was not posted.

Thanks for the thorough Den's Club info, Kook! I knew about the pool activities, but the indoor crafts, etc. will be a nice downtime option for DD11 (and myself) while her little brother (and certainly DH) take an afternoon nap, especially if the weather isn't cooperating for outdoor activities.

Next question: Are we able to purchase MVMCP tickets the day of the party (if there is still availability) at the concierge? The day we would like to go to the party, we plan on spending the day at AK rather than MK so we wouldn't be at MK to see if it is still available to buy the tickets. (We don't want to go if it is sold out, or if the weather isn't good so we are not purchasing ahead of time.)

5 days!!!

We spilled the beans to our kids via a scavenger hunt, and their reaction was priceless.
I showed them the pictures of the WL, and their jaws hit the floor - "It's like a huge mansion!!!" They started exploring the Disney website, and so far want to go on EVERYTHING.

Friday can't come soon enough.

So as you already know we don't have the CL for our last nite. My hubby will talk to CL as you suggested. I was asking him last nite where did he book us and he said the POP Century because he always wanted to try out that place. Do you think it will be very disappointing after being at CL the week before?
Should I tell him to get a regular room at the WL? What do you guys think of POP?

Thanks again!!

It might, it might not. But if he always wanted to try it, why not? At least it's only one night, if it's not your resort you won't have to stay for a whole vacation or take time and effort to change it
