Got here around 8pm tonight and so far has absolutely exceeded everything. We've had so much pixie dust in the last 3 hours I'm afraid the rest on the trip may pale in comparison! Went to get onto ME and was given a fast pass plus trial for BOG for lunch. Got to WL where we not only got our request for a bunk bed room, but also had our standard view upgraded to a pool view.

At dinner the girls were each gifted a Mickey straw, then a cast member came out and gave them each a Mickey rice crispy treat while they were eating.

We were greater at the front door with a cast member with an iPad to check us in, no wait. And we were able to schedule to be flag family for 5/23, and my sils family was able to schedule flag family for 5/22.

So far an absolutely magical start to vacation.

I requested a North Wing Honeymoon Suite for our upcoming June honeymoon. Paul I will send you pictures of the view if we get the North Wing Honeymoon Suite.

Also, Kook thanks for the AWESOME job on the first thread and now continuing all your hard work on this new thread.

That is great pixie dust. Flag family is really nice. I hope you can get some pictures. I've heard that the view is awesome.

I've heard that Disney is continuing with the fastpass+ testing. I hope it is up and running in December because we decided to do BoG for lunch instead of dinner, and a FP+ would make it easier. You'll have to let us know how that worked out.

What a magical start to your vacation! Yay for pixie dust! Hope the rest of the vacation is just as enjoyable!

I am going to be there next week for work training and we have all been speculating about the BOG FastPass trial. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll still be doing the trial on Monday when I arrive and take ME for the first time!

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.


I'm very jealous!!! You all have fun!
2 already!!! Wow!

Brian, I think the longest I've held a booking was the WL HM room...about a month I think...but there was a split stay with GF, so perhaps that doesn't count

Hi - I'm very new to this thread and the WL in general. We are considering it for our trip in March. We have 2 adults and 3 kids but one is still in a crib. I read on another thread how it's good to stay at WL and AKL before your youngest turns 3 because after that you need 2 rooms or a suite. So, here I am considering it. We have only stayed at CR, BLT, and Pop before.

1) How long does the boat to MK take? I read that it starts 1/2 hour before park opening. We are rope droppers every day and would want to be at MK well before it opens so maybe the bus is better for the morning and boat on the way home.

2) Is there NOT a door to the vanity portion of the bathroom? All pictures I've seen seems like it's open.

3) I'm concerned about the smaller room size. Can anyone compare these rooms with the CR ones? I know KOOK is the master of both threads but I thought others might know too. We were always fine in the CR rooms but they were full. 5 peoples stuff, suitcases, a sit and stand stroller, etc. The WL rooms seem small, but maybe they aren't.

4) Are the bunk bed rooms worth the added price? Do you really get more open room space or is it sort of wasted space?

Thanks! And sorry for the barrage of newbie questions.
