Anyone know .......

Do the deluxe rooms usually fill up during the summer months? Or are they often empty?

I'm pretty sure they fill up quickly at any time of year. I know we booked over a year out and couldn't even get a AAA discount since the max number of discounted rooms were already gone

AAA booked our Honeymoon Suite at WL for the last week of Sept 2013 in Nov 2012.....and we got the AAA room discount!

September may traditionally be a low crowd month, but I wasn't taking any chances!!!!

Since they are the only WL rooms that accommodate 6, they can be popular. But, there are 24 of them and I've never seen them offered with an AP or military room-only discount, so I can't imagine they go that fast at almost rack rate for many and at a premium with CL access. I think sometimes people report not being able to get one using a discount, but they may be available at rack

Last time we visited the WL we stayed in the south wing. Thinking about the north wing this go around (woods view). We'll try to get an upper floor. At the room request tips?

Thanks for the replies about my concern with bus transportation. We have 2 ADR's at other resorts- 1900 Park Fare and Cape May Cafe, so it seems the quickest way to get there would be take the bus to MK and transfer there.

I love the planning phase- can't wait!

We'll be dining at 1900 Park Fare, too, one week from today, as a matter of fact. We plan to take the AK or HS bus to GF, since it is supposed to go to GF before going to the park. But I'll ask the bus driver before I get on the bus, just to be sure. The other choice would be to the boats, from WL to MK then MK to GF. I love the options.

Hot off the cutting room floor! A great WL video (with FW music) featuring dining, the Mercantile, arcade, pool and a Deluxe room:

Are you asking about requests you could make? If so, the high floor is probably most popular since you might be able to see some of Wishes. Some also prefer 5th floor because it's the highest floor that doesn't have any of the solid balcony railings.

I always say that the planning and anticipation is half the fun!

And yet another option is the CR Blue Flag boat and then monorail to GF.

Thanks! My daughter might want us to take the monorail because the kids would like it. But I take a commuter train for work, so the monorail loses its appeal for me.

I'm voting for boats .
