2 Bedroom Deluxe Pics

I just posted some pics of our 2 bedroom deluxe unit in Tower 4 on the WBC photo thread in case anyone wants to see more pictures.


We stayed in unit 1474 which was right beside the elevator. Never heard any noise from the elevator and would choose tower 4 again for a number of reasons. LOVED the view of Epcot and the fireworks at night. Epcot was very close, and MK was in the distance, but still had a pretty good show.

We recently booked a deluxe two bedroom unit for our May trip! We are so excited! We passed by WBC while on a bus to DTD on our last trip and were amazed by how close it is to everything. All the positive feedback and photos about WBC here on the boards really helped us to choose this resort over other options we were considering.

Confirmation fee?

I'm sure this topic has probably come up before but I was not able to find an answer when searching. Looking into booking at the WBC and I see included with the quote from what seems to be a respectable outside source a significant confirmation fee. Is this a legit fee?, am I being duped?, or is it just the price of doing business and is something you just have to bear? Thanks

I had to pay a $300 deposit to VS, but that was deducted from my total. I would use VS again in a heartbeat, they were awesome!

Staying at BC for the first time at the end of December and I have a few questions. 1. When should I call to request a room? 2. Do I call the BC number directly?

Thanks in advance.

Oh, me too --- a deposit with VS. I meant it was all included though....as part of my total fee, not an extra fee.

I called WBC a few days ago and requested fireworks view, we'll see. Their direct number is 407-238-3500.

I'm here now, leaving tomorrow. I called Bonnet Creek directly about a week before we left. We got exactly what we requested. We did speak to another couple at the pizza place who said they booked a certain view 9 months out and didn't get it. Not really sure how it all works.

VERY hard. No, let me correct that. VERY VERY hard. After the first salesweasel tells you you're stupid for not buying, they send in the closer. Then they send you to a guy who will supposedly take a satisfaction survey, but will try to sell you points for a vacation. When I refused there, he kept jumping up out of his seat and exclaiming, "You're just not thinking right!" And so on.

How long was your stay? Did you have the phone call invite, Did you finally buy? If not how were you treated after,

If memory sserves:
1. March 2006. I was at Star Island via a business gift, and suckered into going to the pitch. I think they kept me for 3 hours (I was clueless then). The pitch was very hard. But I looked around, and figured the people I saw there would never be able to pay the installments on their loan, and would have to re-sell at a lower price. I never could have conceived just how low, until I got home and looked on ebay.
2. Dec. 2006. I was obligated via above to go again on my second visit to Orlando. The sales pitch was even harder, with the young woman salesweasel showing cleavage (!), and telling me, "I know what it is, you just can't afford it, right?"
3. After that, I bought Wyndham, via Ebay, for $100, 49,000 points.
4. I went to Bonnet Creek in September 2009, and was offered a gift card to go on the "Owners Update." It made no difference that I told them I could buy on ebay for $1 what they were selling for $15,000. When I said it's been 90 minutes as they promised, and I'm not in Orlando to spend it at a sales pitch, they sent me to the next guy, who tried to sell me points that I could use for a vacation. But I did the math, and it came to about $175 a night! So I declined. He's the guy who kept jumping up and exclaiming, "You're not thinking right!" Then they sent me to a final guy, who pressured me to buy, I think, a vacation outright. When I said no, he looked disgusted, threw down the paper work, and let me go. They kept me 2.5 hours.
5. Last year I received an invitation, "as a Wyndham owner," to stay at their "beautiful new luxury hotel Wyndham Grand at Bonnet Creek," for a reduced rate, if I went to a "meeting." I bit. Once again there was a lot of pressure--and then the salesweasel angrily asked me, "If you knew you didn't want to buy more points, why did you take the offer"! But at least they kept me only an hour and 20 minutes.
