Two resorts to ask about:

AKL - is this correct - out front by buses and also behind the pool slide? Any chairs in the pool slide area? Staying in August for first time, so wanted to make sure!

Also...
WL- where to smoke? And any section good to request a room in to allow for easy access to a smoking section? Staying at WL in early December. Want to be able to sneak out late at night and have a smoke. Is it too dark and deserted down by the pool/beach DSA?

I have a courtyard view booked. Should I try for requesting off the lobby? Or south side but closer to the lobby? Or south side down by the pool bar area? Is there an elevator in the building at that far end for an easy in and out?

Most of our stays are ground floor at values and is so easy to open your door and short walk to a DSA, so not sure what I'll do at WL or AKL, so that's why all the questions! thanks!

The DSA by the beach is sorta dark, and of course late at night it can be deserted. But we use it frequently and haven't had a problem. It's the only choice as far as finding one near a room. Just ask for a room near Bay Lake if you have Woods or Courtyard View. For Standard View, you'll have to walk no matter where you are. The one by the bus stop is your only other choice, and I don't think it'll matter which Standard room you have, really.

Hey Stitch34,

We stayed at the WL and AKL in December last year.

We found the best DSA at WL at night was the one just behind the shop (Mercantile?). It has 4 x bench seats and overlooks the covered walkway between the WL and the Villas.
Plenty of like minded folk to chat to if you desire and all under cover so no problems in the rain. We also got a coffee from the Roaring Forks to take with us too. Met lots of interesting people from all over the States.

AKL has the DSL at the front of the building by the bus stop but the best one is by the pool bar. There are again some bench seats and individual chairs and also some umberellas to sit under if needed. The guys at the pool bar are pretty relaxed too and if there's nobody around to offend then they let you sit at the bar on the high stools.

Milly

Our best friends both smoke. Him chain - Her not so much.
We did the world with them last year during food and Wine. No problems at all. We just would figure out where the nearest smoking section was and after dinner head there first. So they could smoke. I know at night he would wander off and smoke, most of the time my DH would go with him. If we where at the pool.
Over all I wasn't bothered in any of the smoking areas.

Just was glad to be hanging out with our buddies.

Thank you for supporting us smokers! It is very much appreciated. I'm glad you had a good time with your buddies.

Gf

According to the map I have seen, the DSA's at GF seem to be few and far between. We are staying in the Sugar Loaf building in December. Can anyone tell me your experience with convenience of DSA's there or from my building, where the closest one I should head for? We've never stayed there before. Thanks!

Disney's Bay Lake Tower DSAs Report

Nobody else has reported these so just wanted to add them to the list...

There is a DSA to the left of the main entrance as your facing it. In the morning this is in shade.

There is a DSA to the right of the Tempo Fountain as your facing the building. This is in the shade in the evenings.

There is a DSA on the observation deck at the Top of The World Lounge. It is to the far right as your facing the MK. it is in the sun in the early evening but as the sun sets over MK ( great view ) it is then in shade. Having a bar beside it is also very handy :-)

There is also a DSA in the area between the Contemporary and BLT, not sure if this is a new one or an old one for the Contemporary.

Thank you. I've been waiting for this information.

I can't believe you have over 10,000 posts and the TG hasn't found you yet. Here's some cheers to help you out.

Smoking at the AKL is great, you can smoke in the Pool area over by the pool bar. It is easily accessible, they have tables and chairs so you can relax and enjoy your cigarette.
