Subscribing to this thread for the first time. We have never stayed at WL, but about to book concierge for August. (We have stayed at AKL, GF (RPC), BWI, and when I was a child I stayed at Poly and Dixie Landings).

count us in September 14-21 woods view with a requesting for Magic Kingdom side high floor, but will take what we get. Last room was woods view, but we overlooked the quiet Villa's pool. Just rebooked from October to september to save some money. We stayed at WL for our girls' 1st trip last february and of course they don't want to stay anywhere else. Hoping to have some down to to explore the lodge a little more this time around. Anyone know if Whispering Canyon Cafe has chicken or chicken nuggets on their kids menu? My daughter wanted to go again, but wasn't liking what's on the menu now. Also need to remember to ask for Flag family at the beginning of my trip since we missed it last time by 1 day.

According to the Disney website, no chicken nuggets on the lunch or dinner menu at all.

Here is their dinner menu for kids:

I have pictures from our trip this month. Here is the view from room 6018. You can barely see the Contemporary and the castle. The Contemporary was much more obvious in person, looking like it was really close to the WL. You can see Cinderella's castle by looking under a branch. The view of the fireworks was a little obscured by branches. My daughter had a perfect view of the castle and fireworks from room 6010, but I don't have a picture of it.



and some towel critters from our room and my daughter's room. They brought the Mickey and Minnie with them. We only got the towel creations during the weekday, none on the weekend. Flowers above the heart was from the lei we got at O'Hana's.

The first three are from our daughter's room:







these three were from our room:

Can someone tell me what view we are likely to get if we book concierge? Should we request something specific?

Thank you for the photos and menu! That is the same menu I had looked up. Maybe I can share something from the skillet with her since she will eat things from that. We only got 1 towel animal the last time and it was a mouse. Maybe this time I will have my girls leave some of their disney toys our in hopes of some added magic.

Thank you for posting your cute photos, Wood Nymph. Looks like you had such a fun mousekeeper.

Congratulations on booking your trip - I'll add you to the Lodgers' Log. Could your DD bring nuggets from RF to WCC?

There are two possible views when booking CL: Woods or Courtyard. Woods can be either on the North side facing toward CR, MK or South side facing toward VWL. Courtyard can be either WL or VWL. If you have a preference, make sure its noted in your reservation and you can email the IPO to do that. Bunk beds are also by-request only.

Thank you! I'm pretty sure my husband won't agree to bunk beds, though :D

I could have sworn I once read that any TS location (or almost all of them) will have Mac and Cheese and/or Chicken Nuggets, even if not on the menu. You just have to ask. But for the life of me I can't remember where I read that. It was back during the planning for our 2011 trip.

It's official! We have booked Wilderness Lodge, Woods View & Bunk Beds for Aug 11-16t! I cannot wait! I already booked all of our dining reservations except for our check in night. I am debating if we should try Whispering Canyon since we're staying there or go to Raglan Road, one of our favorites, at Downtown Disney. I just can't decide! We are doing a TON of new restaurants this trip, so I thought maybe I'd try to do something familiar, but I think next time my husband is insisting on a monorail resort, unless he falls in love this trip, so I might want to take advantage of being there & eat at the resort? I'm so indecisive, but overall just stoked to have another Disney trip to look forward to!

One of our favorite things to do .... on our MK day hit the park in the morning and then come back to Whispering Canyon for a relaxing lunch. Our last 3 trips we have not needed ADRs for our lunch .... eating lunch after 1:00 pm.

That is a great idea and one I thought about doing on our AKL day, just wasn't sure if we'd make it for a later lunch after an early TH breakfast, but there are plenty of Disney snacks to much on to tide us over, right?

HI! I have not stayed at WL in years because we have one too many babies. I am staying in a few weeks, as grandma is taking them to her dvc villa. So excited to go back to WL especially all the rooms have been refurbed! When booking a view is it worth it to request inner courtyard, I think it is call Bear something on DIS? How is it having your door off the lobby?
