We had no problem getting from WL to FW by bus for an 8:30am Segway tour. That bus runs frequently. We could also walk (about 20 minutes).

But, I never saw a boat from WL to FW or CR. I'm sure they run but they seem to run infrequently during the off-season. Our boat to MK was always quick so I never stayed on the pier long enough to see the other boat.

My guess is that they reduce the number of choices during the off season. In other words, there's always at least one convenient mode of transportation but alternatives might run less frequently.

Does anyone know if they've switched the coffee in Roaring Forks over to the new provider yet? I just read on another thread that that the transitions were supposed to begin mid April? I love my morning cup of coffee, but am not a fan of the Nescafe at all.

Thanks!

Good point! Kook..... When does the extra fee kick in for a deluxe room? After 2 still???

I didn't read thru all 224 pages of this thread but sure I will by the time we leave on 11/29!!! We stayed at WL April 2012 and absolutely loved it. When I asked the kids if they wanted to try a different resort they quickly said NO!!! Fine by me HAHA!!!

So quick question....can you get club level with a standard room with bunk beds? Trying to figure this out!

Thanks

Bunk beds in club level rooms is by request only. They are not guaranteed. You can ask for them and hope that they are available for your stay.

I would love to know the answer to this too. We always ended up brewing some in room and filling our mugs with that because it tasted better than the Nescafe. Would love to see a better offering before we get there.

We currently have a reservation at CSR, business class for August but am seriously considering a switch to WL. Is a standard view at this particular resort bad? Will the room be far from everything? I've never booked standard view at any resort but need to be mindful of sticking to a budget on this trip...just a tad nervous about the views. Could also consider upgrading to woods view if better...any difference? One view better than the other? Really need suggestions...TIA!

One of the great things about WL is how compact it is. So you really won't be far from anything no matter where you are. If you look at post #2 of this thread, you will see detailed descriptions and pictures of the different views/categories.

WL advice

Hey Ya'll!
We are currently booked at BLT in September, but I am seriously thinking about switching to WL in order to take advantage of FD.
My question for you WL experts is this: we will need two rooms, prefer connecting. Can you get one room with bunks and one with queen beds? Or in order to be connecting, do they need to be "mirrored" room types?
I know they cannot guarantee connecting rooms.
TIA!!

Thank you.... I think I'll look into the "woods view"

I'll tell you I love WL, but I did go to CSR-Business Class for a meeting in March. I was very impressed. They really did a great job. They did not have the warm apps like Club Level, but we did Breakfast there every day. We also had the sangria in the evening. It was so good I want to go back sometime soon.
