I had requested a courtyard view with bunk beds. Do I have to say that I want a SPECIFIC courtyard view facing Silver Springs/Pool. I thought I had read somewhere on here or another thread that Courtyard view could also mean facing the villas? Is that true? If I want to face the main courtyard...Silver Springs...how do I request that??? And also...is it possible or am I just dreaming...to get a comp upgrade to concierge???

I guess the premium courtyard views are the Bear Face rooms...correct? Do I request it that way or do they call them something else?

Thank you

Thank you so much for such a great review. I am going to change my food order at garden grocer right now. I think you just saved me alot of money. I knew there was food but I was worried about how much and exactly what would be there. My biggest concern being breakfast. The pictures were great and just what I needed to ease my mind!!!!

Memory Makers....

Thank you so much for the review and pics!!! I'm taking my husband for our 1st ever concierge stay and 1st ever Wilderness Lodge stay for our 20th (blissful ) Anniversary. I think he will be thrilled. I really appreciate the effort to show us all the details!

Wendy, unless you need something very specific, there is no reason why you would need anything else at all! Maybe just drinks to carry into the parks, but that would be it. You can take any of the snacks back to your room. In fact, had I known I would have taken zip locks and gotten goldfish and pretzels to carry in my backpack for the parks for the kids.

The cookies are awesome. I wish I had brought some home with us

The food offerings at CL were enough for my 3 kids for breakfast and snacks. I enjoyed the minestrone soup and cheese offerings. Nothing like having a glass of wine after a long day at the parks while looking over the lobby.

We would do CL again without hesitation.

You will love the WL. We stayed there for the first time last year. If the WL had monorail access, we would stay there every year. It is so relaxing to enter after a tough day at the parks. The lobby is just breathtaking. It looks like a giant Lincoln Log Old West lodge. We are going to stay at CR this year and are afraid that we will miss out on being immersed in the Disney experience. It just doesn't seem quite as well-themed as the other resorts. While at the WL you must try one meal at Whispering Canyon. They have really good food and milkshakes (all-you-care to drink shakes). It is a fun place to eat, especially if you get a fun server. We ate both breakfast and dinner and our servers were not quite into the tomfoolary. But it's fun to watch the servers who are. They have fun activities for children.

I had heard that Beer was available on CL too. Was that the case MM2669?

Thanks for posting all of the pictures, they are awesome. Hoping to stay on CL on our next trip.

If the WL had monorail access, you could not afford it......

Memory Maker,

Thanks for the review!! That's the Lodge CL for you.

Those bagels that you said were wheat are actually cinnamon sugar.

It's is amazing how much they put out at dinner time. I found out that the head chef at Artist Point actually finishes all the dishes, especially the cobbler and he HAS to inspect the food BEFORE it comes up to the floor.

Did you know that there is over $50.00 worth of berries on top of the cobbler!!!

Sad thing about Yacht Club CL, though. I have some friends that work the floor and found out that they are going to renovate the Club Level. I asked why they didn't have those little refrigerators like at the Lodge. Why would a Club Level just lay sodas and water on the table?? Also, they would put the puddings in a bowl of ice. So, I do know that they do want to fix it.

No excuse for the chair being in the hall way!!

Again, thanks for the review.

Yes, there is beer on the CL. It is usually out at the 5pm "dinner" time when they put out the wine.

Yes, we take zip lock bags all the time. Especially if we have left over or so, keeps things fresh in the fridge.

I do know that the last time we were up on the Club Level, they had carrying trays (the kind you see at MacDonalds). If you don't see them, just ask!!

Also another tip. When you go to the Lounge and you want to bring some goodies back to the room, use the tray that is under the ice bucket in your room. Works perfectly. I have seen so many moms trying to bring back drinks and cereal for the little ones so I usually tell them about the tray. I never feel funny about doing that!!
