Someone has a new ticker. It's another Sea Raycer Split! (As GrandCalifornian refers to it). Yes, I saved the best for last

We are booked to stay at the lodge for the first time this October! I'm slowly making my way through this thread so I'm sorry if these questions have already been asked. We booked a standard room-should I make a specific room request (are some standard rooms better than others?). I know there were recent renovations there-was the entire resort renovated or just a part? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Yay! I am honored, excited for you, (and just a little jealous too). That should be a great trip!

Welcome to the thread!

Every WL room was renovated. Some who book a STD View room request a high floor, such as the 5th, in the North Wing since you can see some of Wishes from that wing. However, the North Wing STD rooms do have the service area below (photos on the first page) and the delivery trucks do make some beeping noises as they back up. The South Wing STD View rooms have a view of the bus stop/VWL/FW woods in the distance and parking lot off to the right.

Let us know if you have any other questions

Thank you, but don't be even a little jealous, your trip is coming up soon and you get to go when the crowds are low. Have you and DW made your ADRs yet? DH considered taking the Blue Flag over with DD, but then he'd miss out on the "welcome home" greeting out front.

Ahh, just the fact your trip is sooner makes it worthy of a little envy, and spending time at CR looks like fun, but we are super excited to spend another 10 days settled in to WL.

We did our ADRs at the 180 day mark and got everything we wanted. We will get to try Be Our Guest for the first time, along with a lot of places we have never been before, and of course Trail's End!

We'll be watching for updates on your trip and it will make us even more excited for ours. Enjoy!

And I look forward to reading your TR after our trip is over - makes me feel back at home

BoG is now a coveted ADR, much like Le Cellier and CRT used to be, so congrats on securing it. We're going to try it as a QS for lunch and of course, I have a breakfast and dinner ADR for TE

YAY! Are you all packed? You're almost doing the reverse of our split. What ADRs do you have booked?

Warning: we were there last week and never once saw a blue flag boat. If you're going during the off-season leave plenty of time to wait for a boat to arrive.

Our trip is just under 2 weeks away, and I'm at the point where I'm obnoxiously excited (which I have a feeling many people hear can possibly relate to). We always book a courtyard view and request an inner courtyard, but I have to admit I think waiting to check in and see what room we're assigned to is probably the most stressful part of the trip for me, and I know it shouldn't be. We spend a decent amount of time in our room, and love to just hang out on the balcony and watch all the fun going on below. In all the times we've stayed we've only had one "bad" room assignment, and they were able to accommodate moving us to an amazing location. I guess no real purpose to my post, except I'm really excited and nervous at the same time, and no one around me would really understand lol.

Love this thread by the way!!!

Good Morning!
I'm sure this is on this thread somewhere but my feeble search attempts are in vain.

We have an ADR for 8 am at Crystal Palace. What's the best mode of transportation? Early bus to MK, cab to CR, boat to CR. I want to leave WL around 7:20-7:30 am. MK opens at 9 am that day.

Hi!

Just a few quick questions for the WL addicts out there. We are planning to go to WDW in Feb for my bday and to run in some of the Princess events (I may do the half w my mom and maybe DH and I think we will do the family 5k). We are long time AKL addicts but I have always wanted to try WL. Just to confirm my suspicion, the deluxe rooms hold 6+ 1 under 3? I will pay for my parents to come with us, and I would like to do CL. I know at AKL I would need two rooms, not sure if a deluxe at WL would meet our needs as well.
