I hope that is correct. The IPO confirmed with the front desk that all the rooms do. But the recent video that featured the deluxe room I did not see one. Sooooo confused!

So this is kind of an odd question. We're booked in a deluxe room at WL Dec 29-Jan 10. 4 adults (mom, dad, grandma and great-aunt), 2 kids.
What's storage like in these rooms? I hate digging through suitcases every day on vacation.

In the photo on the previous page they show a dresser. With layers you'll need that time of year it may not hold all of your clothes but it's probably good for a few things. Are you flying or driving? If you drive one option may be to bring your own rolling rack. You can buy them at WalMart/KMart/Target for about $30 and unassembled they take up little space.

That's a great idea. We are driving so that will probably work nicely. Thanks!

Deluxe room ceiling fan

I confirmed with the IPO (for the second time) and they said that the Deluxe Rooms do have fans. I told them I saw a recent pic of the deluxe room and it did not have one. I hope they are right. My husband wanted to stay at the Cabins due to cost and was I able to talk him into Wilderness Lodge Deluxe room one of the main reasons being the stupid fan! He will not be happy if he spent thousands more on a room when they told us they have them.

IPO has confirmed the fan, the April 2012 Deluxe room photo I posted this morning shows the fan, the Deluxe room layout in post #2 shows the fan and the WDW booking site shows the fan above the queens in the Deluxe room slideshow: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/re...t/rates-rooms/ ...so I'm betting there's a fan

Welcome! There are Deluxe room photo links on the first page/post #2 and many Deluxe room photos on the WDW booking site: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/re...t/rates-rooms/

They have the same storage as a STD room (armoire with drawers/closet shelves/coffee maker stand with drawers and fridge below), with the addition of one additional drawer which is in the table that holds the second TV in the sitting room with the queen sofa bed. In addition to AngiTN's great idea, make sure you utilize the closet shelving since it's going to be a bit crowded

I forgot to mention to make sure you bring some hangers and to save your box to haul it home

Sorry I am on my phone and thought I quoted. This is in response to the fan in deluxe rooms. The more I think about it the more I really don't remember if our room had one. Sorry I know not very helpful!

You know I swear ours didn't have one but I certainly wouldn't bet my life on it. I admit I am not the most observant person! I would just have the IPO include it on your room reservation in case maybe some of the rooms truly don't have them. The air conditioning in our room worked great... And we would leave both outside doors open in the morning to get a breeze so I didn't ever even think about a fan.

I am going to trust them and hope for the best. I didn't think to add it as a request because they said deluxe rooms all have them. We'll see!

Hopefully you will get a fan! Your question is driving me nuts. I actually just checked my trip photos looking for a fan! We apparently didn't take a ton of shots of the bedroom but what we did don't show a fan. My DH also swears there wasn't one. I can't believe I can't remember... shows I am getting old! Overall we LOVED our Deluxe room. I thought the layout was great and we definitely made the most of the club level amenities.

I thought the storage was good. We stayed in one in December and brought a ton of clothes. I was ready for 90 degree weather or 40! There are two dressers in the bedroom... One is more of a tall wardrobe that you can hang clothes and there are shelves with a couple of small drawers in it. There is also a long closet in the living room. You could request extra hangers and hang lots of stuff or also maybe bring one of the fabric shelve things that hang off a closet bar. I always like to immediately unpack out of suitcases and didn't have a problem.

We arrived at the lodge yesterday and were greeted at the door by a CM who knew our name. I was pretty impressed at that since we aren't staying concierge level, we are just staying in woods view room. Our room is on the sixth floor with a view of the castle. Our daughter is four doors down, closer to the end by the lake, and has an perfect view of the castle. She got an upgrade from a standard room. It is a great room.

We went swimming yesterday and the kids loved the slide. They have flotation vests for the children to use, which was great. We've ridden the boats to both MK and the CR, and really enjoy that option.

We really like this resort.

Great to hear from you!

What a wonderful upgrade for your DD and it sounds like everyone is happy. So, have you been looking over the BB offer?
