There are 24 of them so they don't go fast. Maybe one day of your trip they're all booked? Or they're already booked with the rate code you're using? I know they're never included with the military discount.

I was trying to change a reservation when I saw your post and then I gave up after 45 minutes on hold. What has happened to the WDTC?
It's probably the rate code...I once was offered it with 5% off..which is something

Changing a reservation, eh

Kook you rock

I booked one in September for this coming June...and the CM told me I had snagged the last room for that time period. I think people have discovered them, and they do go fast!

As that amazing RC queen would say, "It's all good." I'm just stepping off the BW and heading back to the MK. I strayed for two days too long, I'm hopeless.

That's interesting. I wouldn't have thought that with their premium price and with there being 24 of them, they would go that quickly, but they must be coveted since they hold up to 5.

Can someone tell me how the boats run? Does the boat to MK get shared with Fort Wilderness? Does the boat to CR share with FW? Is there a boat from the CR to MK?

Thanks in advance.

No the boat to MK goes just to and from the MK. The resort boat is shared between CR and FW

There is not a direct boat from CR to MK, you would have to switch boats at either FW or WL, which both have direct boats to MK. (Or you could walk directly to MK from CR)

The boats that run the resort loop between WL, CR, and FW sometimes run clockwise and sometimes counter-clockwise. We found the route to more often be WL, CR, FW in the morning and WL, FW, CR in the afternoon. It is a minor difference, but notable.

25 days, wow, your trip is almost here! I bet everybody is getting really excited now. Enjoy!

Hello,
We are travelling from England and I have booked the WL we will be arriving for 2 weeks from 29th April 2013. We have been to WDW 7 times the last visit was 5 years ago. We have stayed on site 5 times at the Music Resort, Movies, PO and CB. This is our 1st visit without our children who have now grown up and have a very young family so hopefully in the future we will have some more great family Disney holidays to look forward to.

We are hoping we will enjoy and have as much fun as we did as a family and I booked the WL for the location and the reviews it also looks amazing. Any advice from fellow empty nesters would be appreciated.

So glad I found this forum.

Thanks
Karen

It's our resort of choice... We're empty nesters also...the peace and tranquility from the subdued tones of the lodge are very soothing ....

Once you enter, see the lobby and continue out the rear following the spring to the falls and pool... Breathtaking!! We load up a cooler with adult beverages and could spend the whole trip just at the pool .... Take the boat to FW some evening for some delicious buffet at Trails End... Heck, get tickets for the Hoop Dee Do Revue T Pioneer Hall there.... Best show on property, decent American hoe-down food and all the beer and wine included ...big hit with alot of guests!!

Breakfast buffet there is great too and it is or was the cheapest on property ..... Hope this helps a little!!

Thank you for your reply.

I am really looking forward to see the lobby everyone says it is breathtaking and amazing. I booked the lodge for exactly that reason so we could relax around the pool and enjoy some relaxation as normally we are trashing around the parks and when we arrive back home we need another vacation as we are exhausted. It will be a very different Disney holiday but one we are looking forward to.

Thank you for your tips and advice this has helped.

Hi GC.

My grandson, age 5, has packed his green bathing suit because it looks best with his green crocs. Kids are cute. Their mom made them a count down chain, which really helps them understand the time frame. I think I'm the most excited of the adults. I can't wait to stay at the WL. I know it will be wonderful.
