Just booked our Oct 2013 stay at the WL!! This will be our first time at a deluxe, and I am soooo excited. Not sure if my boys are more excited about going for MNSSH or the bunk bed at the WL. Now to cross my fingers for free dining....

Congratulations! Your boys should have a great time there. We were there for free dining this September and loved it so much we booked a bounceback for next year.

We would love to be in one of the "bear face" rooms. Are there any bunkbed rooms in this area? Looks like I would need to book a "courtyard view" room to have a chance of getting one of these rooms. Is this correct? Also any suggestions of the best way of requesting a room in this location when I make my ressies? I know that there is no guarantee, but I'd like to increase any chance I can get. This location would be the best of both worlds for us. Our favorite view of the courtyard, and our favorite location right off the lobby!

Thanks for any help!
Welcome! Yes, you would need to book a Courtyard View room. The "Bear Face" rooms are are located on the 4th and 5th floors and are odd numbered from 4067-4079 and 5067-5069. You could just have that request placed in your reservation, but I don't know which ones, if any have bunks. I hope you have a wonderful birthday trip!

If I'm looking at just a standard (woods) view room, is there anything I should request?
Welcome, katmg! There are both Standard View and Woods View rooms. I'm going to assume you're asking about a Woods View room? Some guests like to request a high floor in the North Wing so that they can see some of Wishes.

We also saw part of the lake and saw (and heard very loudly) the nightly water electric parade and fireworks from Magic Kingdom. We were very impressed with the holiday decorations and my kids loved the resort, especially the bunk bed. The restuarants were very nice and the CM's are very nice and you can tell they work very hard. I made sure to thank them because too many times, they aren't and a simple thank you can make their day. The food at each restuarant was better and more than I expected. I would definately stay there again....this time we were upgraded to WL, next time we are thinking about maybe doing a villa. Against my wife's wish's, I took my 7 year old son out on a 2 seat sea racer out onto the lake. It was a lot of fun and I think he and I really enjoyed the father/son time. Watch out for those bigger boats though!!! They send out some good waves for a little sea racer!!! LOL We did have a dining plan but we stopped at a publix before arriving and got yogurt/fruit/milk for breakfast so we didn't have to use any credits. It was nice having a mini fridge to be able to do that!! Housekeeping was excellent!! Having a balcony was also nice, but I turned out to not use it as much as I wanted to because my kids thought it would be fun to try to climb up the railing. I have two kids that have selected fears and my 3 year daughter is scared of Barnstormer roller coaster but still demanded to ride it each time!!!! So, I just couldn't take any chances with her on a balcony. I learned that within 20 minutes of getting in the room. Again, had a nice stay at WL, would definately stay there again.
Thanks for your WL TR, WellingtonR.

We were on the 6th floor and our room (6018) had a beautiful view of the castle, perfect opening in the trees. Loved the patio area behind the pool bar - very seldom was anyone there and it was so relaxing to sit by the stream and wait for the geyser. I wish I could say we spent a lot of time there but we were on the go most of the time.

We had only stayed moderate before this and I think I'm spoiled. I want a trip back where we drastically cut back our park time and do some relaxing!
Welcome back! Yes, the Deluxes do spoil you and you definitely need to go back to do more resort-only days

Yep, you'll want to go back - so just plan on that now.

Thank you so much! I think I'll go ahead and book a Courtyard View room and forget about the bunk beds. We've had a bunk bed room several timesin the past, my kids even had bunk beds in their room at home at one point, they really don't have to have them on vacation. I think the odds would be better if I didn't book bunk bed.

This will be our 6th stay at the lodge. It's our favorite resort in WDW, and no other place feels like "home". We are currently booked at POR, but my heart is calling for WL, especially since it's a birthday trip. We've been twice for our children's birthdays and have always stayed at WL for those special trips. Just can't NOT stay there this time. I should hang out on this thread more often. I'd feel so at home with all these WL lovers!

Just booked my first solo trip for Jan. 2 - 5. I agree that WL feels like home - it will be great to be back there! (Stayed at POR last month. It was nice, but isn't 'home')

Right now it's snowing here, has been for hours, it's cold and predicted to get really cold tonight. So it's good I can look at some nice pictures here and dream of sitting by the pool in the sun with a nice cool drink....

Hmmmmmmmmmm
