I discovered yet another disadvantage of getting up at 0430 - schools don't announce delays until 0500. No sleeping in today for me, but DD is happily snoozin'...

Thank you.
It has been duly noted and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Kilimanjaro Club - or have you tried it before?

Just added you and we'd love to see a wedding photo or two in June

Very excited.
We booked a standard room, if I don't want to be above the smoke house, should I request off the lobby?



Thanks
Are there any STD rooms off the lobby? I thought that the STD (non Club Level) rooms either overlook the service area in the North Wing or the bus stop/VWL area in the South Wing. The top North Wing rooms have a partial Wishes view though and lots of woods when looking straight out and the Otter Pond and more woods are to the right of the balcony and the parking lot area is to the left - just the opposite for the South Wing.

Here are some North Wing photos of the STD room location:

No it will be our first stay at AKL. I will happily report back
Trying to try different resorts this year. Leaving in 13 days for a cars suite at AoA, May brings the cabins and August, Well you know where we will be then
I can't always read every post running after the littles...are you still doing the cabins or have you switched back to WL!

Holding steady on the FWC - I've always wanted to try them. I hope you're getting a quantity discount for having so many WDW trips booked! I'd also like to hear what you thought of AoA when you get back.

I believe the South wing floors on the fourth floor above the registration desk are Standard view that open to the lobby. These are the rooms that overlook the bus stop. In my opinion this would be a great location. (We were in the same spot, just up on the 6th floor on our last trip after booking a standard room.)

I have also heard about the rooms directly over WCC being standard view, but the map shows them as Woods view.

Our approach for next time is to book a standard view and request open to lobby. We'll see how it goes.

A bread thread? Probably, but I never venture too far away from the Resorts Forum and Bay Lake

I noticed in the Lodgers' Log that many of your trips overlap

Labor Day is going to take on new meaning in your family. Congratulations to you, Grandma! (Or is it Grandpa?)

Whatever will you do if DD moves to FL? You'll have to visit her all the time and take her places - hope she'll be close enough for a WCC dinner

OK, so after carefull consideration we decided to extend our stay at the lodge. We'll now be arriving saturday the 4th and leave the 18th.

We still have tickets for ten days so room for a few days away. Like a daytrip to Nasa, some shopping....
I guess we'll mostly do that on the busier weekends.

Only three months to go

Has anyone here done online check in? Are you able to make any room requests with the online check in? My daughter is doing online check in later today and she has a standard view. We have a woods view and are hoping that we can be close enough to be convenient to each other. If there are options on the online check in, would any of them increase her chances of being close to a woods view room?

I'm not planning on doing online check in. She is arriving one day ahead of us, so I need her room number before we check in so that we can try to get close to her room. I would love to be near Otter Pond, so I hope it all works out.

TIA

It is so exciting to read all the announcements of upcoming trips! So many of us are in planning mode and many of us have our ADR date quickly approaching. (some of us are in planning mode even when we don't have a scheduled trip)

WDWKOOK: I am looking forward to reading your review of dinner at BOG. I have read some rather mixed reviews in allears rate and review. It won't keep me from trying to make an ADR, but it does make me wonder if it will be worth the effort!

OK. So last year I was stressing about the refurbishment at the lodge, so I switched to a 2 BR villa. (trip, sadly, not taken) This year, I have my villa and now there are rumors of a refurbishment there?? I feel like refurbs are following me around. At least in the lodge there are wings so you can escape some of the noise and disruption, but I am thinking at the villas there would be no way to do this. I know, I may be worrying needlessly, but that's me! I am not ready to panic and switch my res but I would so appreciate any news on this possibility. (I will also keep checking the VWL thread) Back to ADR planning now!
