I've heard that BC will give out small bottles upon request, but I've not heard of other CLs. I've never asked for them so I don't know about WL, but hopefully someone else will help answer your question, Julie.

Well, that would be a nice perk! My husband is in the military so I think he'd really enjoy being a part of this experience! Thanks for the patience with this WL newbie!

Awesome, thank you! I know we have two pre-park opening breakfasts so we'll hopefully get lucky and be chosen and able to do it on a day we don't have them. I really think it would be a neat experience for my husband in particular! Fingers crossed!

I asked 2 years ago, DD wakes up in the middle of the night for water a lot, & was given 1 of the large glass bottles that they used to have out. But, I asked last September & was told the only water they have is the water in the large dispensers. So, I would just save a couple of disposable coffee cups with that water in the fridge.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. I usually just check a bag full of bottled water, so I'll probably just do that this time too. Can't believe I have less than 36 hours! My husband is meeting us later in the week, so I'm flying alone with the kids for the first time. I'm dreading the flight, but knowing where it is taking me certainly helps to make it better!

At breakfast time, there was plenty of fresh fruit in addition to the oranges, apples and bananas out all day. And there was oatmeal. Don't know what else was out at that time because I just looked in briefly on our way to get a taxi to an early ADR.

We are really enjoying ourselves! Got room 7044 which is a MK view. Very nice and near the elevators to the pool and the boat.

Mouse keeping and CL staff have been great so far! Today was our first full
day here and we came back to find 4 towel animals. :-)
Thank you for sharing!

I was just reading some old posts and came across this:
Quote:
There is an extra blanket in the closet, the runner at the end of the bed and a down comforter in between two sheets on the bed, like at the CR.
Do they now have down (as in feathers) in the bedding and pillows???

If so I'd need to let them know since I'm slightly allergic. No big issues but sleeping under or on them is too much. I'd wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air No fun that....

We were just there last month and the comforter was a thin fiberfill, not down. And the pillows were fiberfill, too.
The extra blanket was acrylic.

She had the room across from us and I only saw her to say hello when they were coming in late on Thursday evening. They had the cutest signs on their door for DGD's birthday!

150 days!!!!!!

No questions today, but maybe we can all list specific WL sights, sounds, and smells that when we experience them someplace else, make us think (and miss!) the lodge.
For me, the smell of mesquite in a BBQ and hearing Appalachian Spring can transport me. A more vague connection is that sometimes the sounds in a large space echoing can make me think of the lobby.
How about you?
