You've eased the minds of so many. I bet they all had sweet dreams tonight. I've worried about that, too, especially losing our Tables in Wonderland which has a $50 replacement fee.


No apologies needed here. Your request is correct, and if you would like to not have a solid balcony railing, you could also request a 5th floor room which is the highest with a see-through railing.
Thanks! I just always hate asking questions when I know I've seen the answer before. I think I'll just leave the request as "upper floor." I'm not too concerned with the balcony railing, just thought maybe we'd get lucky and see some fireworks when we're back at the room for little ones to go to bed.

We are SUPER excited for our first stay at WL next week!!!

We just returned from an absolutely fabulous trip - we started with 3 days at the BC and then moved "home" to the WL Our room was on the 4th floor inner courtyard and we had a fabulous view of the upper Wishes fireworks. The best nights were for Hallowwishes as these are even higher than the standard and wow of wow it was something I'll never forget - it simply doesn't get any better than this

We enjoyed the BC but there is something so special so relaxing about the WL that is something I just cannot explain - cares of the crazy world just slips away.

I can highly recommend the new Chef at the WL - he made me an amazing gluten free breakfast and lunch! While we didn't go for dinner (the skillet only does not work for us) the other meals were delicious, safe, and full of options. Roaring Forks managers also took very good care!

Oh and the new renovations are beautiful - lots of hidden Mickeys!

This is so reassuring; thanks for sharing! I am making my first trip to WL in Dec and it will also be my first trip to WDW since having to go gluten free. Hearing other people's experiences helps ease my worries! Any other gluten free favorites from your trip?

Any tips or advice gratefully received. Our thoughts have been with those affected by Sandy.
Welcome! Some prefer to see some of Wishes so they request a North Wing room on a high floor. Best not to request a specific room number, except as an example, because if that number isn't available, the room assignor won't know why you requested it and will have difficulty assigning a similar room.

Don't forget to look at the first page for activities and recreation that your family might enjoy. Also, there is a non-stop bus to the MK, which often gets overlooked.

Let us know if you have any questions and have a wonderful trip!

You're welcome and we're happy to try an answer any questions - new or old!

FW, as in Ft. Wilderness? Are you staying there or Wilderness Lodge?

Thank you for letting us know about your split stay and your experience with your gluten diet. Will you do another split in the future?

Oh I'm sorry....I'm new to this whole blogging thing and abbreviations. We are staying at wilderness lodge. We had recently been upgraded to there. We were originally booked for the cabins.

Three Weeks from Today!!!!!

Sorry for all the exclamation points but sometimes excitement just sort of bubbles out.

This time next week we will be sitting on the plane ready to head east to our favorite place and our first stay at WL. I hope time starts moving a little faster now and then slows to a crawl once we get there.

Hey! We hit our 3 week mark as well
Even though we were just in the world 3 weeks ago there's something about being there during the holidays that gets me super excited!!
Have a GREAT trip!

Hi Everybody,

It looks like many of you had great trips or are just about to! We would like to add our next trip to the Lodger's Log. We booked a bounce back for September 6-15, 2013 at WL. At the time we booked we weren't sure we'd be able to keep it, but planning, saving, and paying off our last trip are moving along well so let's go for it! We can't wait to go home again.
