VWL- 1 bdrm updates?

Has anyone stayed at a 1bdrm at the villas lately? We are going in April, and havent been to the VWL in a few years and I heard it is outdated? Also, any suggestions for room requests?

i'm getting ready to book at the wilderness lodge. I am booking a standard room, is there an area that has some what of a good view that I can request? Would I be able to see any fireworks from MK from this view? Or should I try Woodlands? Any input would be great thanks!

deluxe room ceiling fan?

Hi! I just saw the video that featured the Deluxe Room. I did not see a ceiling fan. That is one of the reasons I talked my husband to this resort/room. I looked on the Disney Website and it still lists a ceiling fan, but I didn't see one in the video. It had a light fixture there! Oh nooooo!!!
Can anyone confirm since the rehab?

Should we stay here ?? VWL OR AKL ??

Just renting points and are choosing between Wilderness Lodge or Animal Kingdom lodge studios ... I have stayed at the Animal Kingdom lodge but never at Wilderness Lodge . Is this a good resort for Adults ? We are 4 adults and looked into Beach Club and Boardwalk but both are book for our time in November ... Any suggestions from those that have stayed at Wilderness Lodge ?? Thanks

You know that both of these studios have one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa, right? I wouldn't want four adults in one studio unless it was maybe OKW for a very short time. OKW is the only studio with two queen beds.

Yes but two of our adults are young like 23 and 25 they could sleep on a rock and be happy !! We are not in the room much anyway and it the sleper sofa is anything like the ones in ASMU Suites then I am sure they will be fine ... We are only there for 4 nights and will be out most of the time it really is only to sleep and shower the only reason to rent points is because it is $1000 cheaper then going through Disney themselves

Not good. I e-mailed the IPO and they said they called the front desk to confirm that all rooms have ceiling fans. That's strange they would tell me that.

This is a pre-rehab photo (4/12) from the Deluxe room link in Post #2 of a Deluxe room ceiling fan, by elaw:




I can't imagine they removed all the ceiling fans post-rehab, so I'm sure you'll have one above the two queens.
