Great thread! We are looking forward to our next WL stay in Nov 2013. Thought I'd gather any thoughts on my quandary with regard to that stay. Would like to try CL (hopefully with bunk beds), but can only confirm 11/9-11/16 with our discount. We did the week after Thanksgiving last year and LOVED all the Christmas decorations, cooler temps and lower crowds. Is it a ridiculously long shot to book what is available and hope for upgrading (by paying for it of course) to CL at check-in the Saturday after Thanksgiving? I can't decide if I should book the week we know we loved and risk CL not being available, or book the earlier week with CL and hope we enjoy it just as much?! So tough...

Welcome! There is great comfort in booking the familiar (and with a discount). I think that booking the week you know you love with lower crowds and beautiful decorations is the way to go. Even though you can't book CL right now, it doesn't mean that a CL room with your discount won't open up before arrival. I had BLT open up with our military rate just a few weeks prior to arrival. If that doesn't happen, you can still inquire at check-in, however, you would most likely be charged the rack rate price difference. But, I think if you book a non-CL room now and keep checking periodically for CL availability, it will probably open up before your trip.

Hey, Brian!

I can always use some help around here. How old is DD now? Is she in college yet? Hope all is well!

Welcome and you've been added to the Lodgers' Log. (The list is getting mighty long). You're going to just love WL and the fantastic Old Faithful Club, Bay Lake, FW, the geyser, the EWP and WCC and... So glad you love the thread and let us know if you have any questions about your first stay.

I see a very tropical background in your ticker - that is NOT Bay Lake. Me thinks a resort change has occurred and someone is no longer at CR - Poly with the KKC snack room perhaps

I wonder what is the longest that Pas has ever stayed with the same reservation. Someday I'll do the KKC... If only for one night.

Thanks so much for your increadible and huge effort you put into this thread. We will be at the Fort wilderness Lodge again from July 18 - 21, before we set sail on a cruise on the Dream.

Is it possible to select a certain resort area when we finalise the e-checkin on the website? We have booked a woods view room and hope to get a glimpse on MK.
