We arrived yesterday from London and are staying in a 1 bed villa.

It is our first time here and we love it. We went to MK last night and the boat trip was super easy!

The lodge looks beautiful my teenage children were blown away by how gorgeous it is.

All in all we are very happy travellers

Awesome!!! You deserve it for the marketing you provide for WL for free on a daily basis.

Did they know it was your favorite room from previous visits or just a real stroke of luck?

I was going to say the same thing! (and joke that for what you do, they should pay you to stay there!)
So happy for you and your family, KOOK! Enjoy!! (and if you get the chance, could you ask around to see if anyone knows the dates for the villas refurb?)

I am enjoying all the reports and videos in between cooking and wrapping. It is so wonderful to have this place to hang out, especially when I am missing the WL.
Thanks again to KOOK and all the wonderful people here who take the time to respond and help others. You have the Christmas spirit all year!!

Congratulations on the upgrade, Kook! It's not what you book, it's where you get to stay. Enjoy it all and have a wonderful Christmas at WL.

We arrived on the 22...it truly is beautiful. We have had no crowds traveling to parks...even a private ride to MK for rope drop.

We are facing the villas but view is all trees so just right.

Kook not sure what room you are in but I bet we gave passed each other .

Merry Christmas all.

PS. A little kalula in hot chocolate after a lower temperature day- makes club level perfect
