I have just a couple questions today....Has anyone been able to get a late check out? Has anyone Upgraded to club level at check in ( paying for it... I'm not trying to get a free upgrade.. I'm thinking about seeing if we can upgrade at check in... Just wondering if anyone has done this and apx what they charged a night. I might go ahead and just book cl if they end up offering a discount later. Thanks

Yes, we got a late check out on the day we checked out. It was only 1 hour but that's all I asked for. Probably could have gotten later if I'd wanted.

We were in club level but it's what I booked before arrival so no idea about doing it at check in. Honestly, it would be better to do it ahead of time since they do some things to get stuff ready for you that they couldn't do if you didn't have it booked already.

Talking Just Booked! Wondering about requests!

Hi All!
I've been a watcher on here for a few months but am happy to report that we just booked our honeymoon vacation at the Wilderness Lodge!

As this is a big splurge for us (we normally stay at Port Orleans Riverside), we can't afford the "honeymoon suite" so I booked a woods view. I had read that the north side lobby woods view has a chance of seeing the tippity top of the castle…am I able to request this now? Or is there a certain time in which I put in a request.

I'm so excited! Thank you in advance for ANY information given!

Congratulations!

We could see the castle, the whole castle, from our 6th floor woods view room. I had put in my request when I was talking to a CM about our reservation. I had requested 5th floor or higher.

Meggimouse Congrats!

We will be honeymooning at Wilderness Lodge this June for 8 days and staying in a honeymoon suite. We requested a honeymoon room on the North Side. While not fully guaranteed they said they would try their best to accommodate the request. The North side is the side with the views of MK. I would request a room on the upper floor on floor 5 or 6. Also listed below is my honeymoon itinerary thread if you want to read it for any suggestions.

Congrats. We have done woods view for a few years now. After I make my reservation I call and put the request for above the 3rd floor facing the otter pond. We were able to see the Castle through the trees and have watch Wishes from the balcony.

Late check-outs are ultimately up to housekeeping, I believe. Best to let them know as far in advance as you can, after you check-in, so that it can noted in your reservation and a decision can be made.

As was suggested, it's best to book the room you really want before you arrive. After arrival, if it's available, you will be charged the difference between what you paid and the current rack rate for the CL room.

Well, we changed our WL reservation. Still going from 11/17 thru 11/23, but instead of CL we are back into a 1 bedroom Villa.

Started thinking of space, money, ect. We are saving money moving back to the 1 bedroom with the AAA rate. Plus now we are going from 340 sq feet to 814 sq ft. Plus a full size kitchen and the washer and dryer.

I think you made a wise choice! As much as I LOVED LOVED LOVED WL CL, a standard room is just way to small for our family. I fell in love with the grounds of the villas. My boys stopped to play a game of checkers in one of the sitting areas off the lobby. I could have sat there relaxing all day!

Since the Deluxe CL rooms at WL are never discounted, they're out of my price range. We will go with a 1BR at VWL next time for the space - and beautiful setting.

That's not to say I won't be back to WL with the ladies!
