So sorry for your loss! I had to take my 17 year old cat to the vet this week too. It seems like she'll be ok for a while. Just not sure how long....

I am sorry to hear about your kitty. You can probably tell by my user name that I love cats. I lost my 17 and 18 year old cats within 2 months of each other last year. Absolutely heartbreaking. Sending good thoughts your way.

Hi all! Posting with a question from the lodge. Do any of the studio villas have a full bed instead of queen? Just checked in and the bed seems smaller than the queen I have at home, but CMs indicate all studios have queen beds. TIA!

So sorry for your loss. We had to put on 17 year old Yorkie down in November. I'm still sad So I feel your sadness! Disney thoughts can help keep your mind busy.

From DIS Updates:

Disney to enforce age restrictions for unaccompanied minors

Leah Zanolla | Posted: Mar 16, 2013 | Updated: Mar 16, 2013 - 10:28:32 PM

The U.S. Disney theme parks are putting a new age restriction into place. Beginning March 23, children under the age of 14 will not be able to enter the parks unless someone aged 14 or older accompanies them. There was previously no documented age policy, but no specific incident prompted the change. Suzi Brown, Disneyland spokeswoman said, "We regularly review all of our policies, and we identified an opportunity to provide a consistent age of admission and address a question we occasionally get from parents. The question is just if we have a minimum age."

The age of 14 was chosen after guest surveys were taken, as well as surveys from child welfare organizations. Brown said, "If a cast member who is working at the front gates sees a guest who appears to be younger than 14 without someone who appears to be older than that, they will engage in a conversation with the guest." As guests of that age don't normally have ID, the cast member will decide if the parent or guardian needs to come accompany the child into the park.

Very sorry to read about your loss. I have lost many kitties over the years and it always hurts. We lost our last one, 19 years old, 14 years ago. We were recently watching videos of our DD when she was a baby and were so happy to see him looking young and healthy. I just have pictures of the others cats I have loved in my life, but I am so thankful we have videos of our last one. He was a part of our family for so long, and a companion to my daughter, unwillingly most of the time!, from the day she came home from the hospital until high school. Gaius looks like he was well-loved.
Hopefully, planning your upcoming trip will give you some happy moments!

Thanks for posting this video! It was very relaxing. Some of the WDW videos online now are so hyper- quick clips that go by so fast that it is hard for me to enjoy them. This really helped me to feel like I was there.

The decision was made...we booked Wilderness Lodge instead of Contemporary or Animal Kingdom Lodge!

This thread and so many positive reviews convinced us to book for 09/08 - 09/13.

We booked a Standard View - where are all those standard view rooms?
I have only seen some pictures of rooms overlooking the driveway for deliveries and garbage etc.

Should I request something or are the views really only of this driveway?
It is not that important what view we have, but I think we should try to make the best of it.

Trying to get back into the groove of things.... I've missed my fellow dissers!!!!! Especially my WL crew!!!! We booked standard last Oct and our view was over the delivery driveway area but we had a great view of wishes at night so we were fine with it. We have booked standard in the past and been upgraded but that is just luck =) We were on the 5th floor in October.

Hmmm... All the VWL beds are supposed to be queens. Maybe you could ask a mousekeeper if you could take a peak into another Studio to see if it's the same size?

Hope you're having great vacation despite the bed

You're welcome. I loved hearing the boat horn and birds chirping

Welcome! There are also some STD rooms which overlook the bus stop, VWL area in the South Wing. Most seem to prefer the higher floors

All studios have a queen and a double sleeper sofa (except for OKW which has two queen beds). And they are queen beds. I've measured them.

Just book a WL Court Yard view room for 10/27-11/2. Hopefully there will be a decent discount released between now and then for even more savings.
