Sorry if this has been asked before, but we all know how the search is "hit or miss"

What form of transportation would you take to get to rope drop at MK? I was thinking boat, it would be cool for the kids to see the MK inching closer for their first visit to MK, but am scared that if the first boat is only 30 minutes before rope drop, how often does the boat fill up for this? I am specifically looking at 8/22

Thanks!

The boat is really cool, but it does fill up quickly for rope drop. I would take the bus, it is really fast, plus they run earlier in the AM. I think it would get you there faster. Do the boat on another day.

I would take the bus also, but make sure to take the boat for the return trip to WL. Try to get a seat outside of the boat in the back. You will have a nice view of MK while leaving.

My friend recently mentioned there was a Hidden Mickey's search nightly at the Wilderness Lodge. Is this true? Has anyone done it?

Thanks!
You might be able to see some of the higher fireworks. When we were there last September we saw some of the higher Pirate & Princess party fireworks from the beach.

In 2006, we stayed at Pop and my favourite snack was a bag of Chip & Dale's Cheese Popcorn. I looked on the snack thread and don't see it anywhere.

I hope so!! We don't have cheese popcorn in Australia, and I LOVED it!
If it is one of the pre-packaged Chip & Dale snacks, they probably have it. I think they also have SmartFood in the Mercantile, which is another type of Cheese Popcorn. Yum!

Not everyone enjoys these rooms (I do) but many guest enjoy being futher out toward the pool then right off the Lobby. For all the room location options I have the information posted on the first page it's the second post.

Trust me no one will know what you're talking about if you request a Bear Face room, you would need to request Inner Courtyard View off the Lobby. Bear Face Rooms is what we call them here on the FAQ Thread.

I would never tell you that an upgrade to Club Level is impossible BUT the Club Level has been very busy lately there may not be a room available to upgrade you to.

Remember all room request are just that request and not guaranteed.

Thanks for the info...I called them back and requested the Inner Courtyard per your instructions. We are so excited!!! Thanks again!

pillows

We just got back from our first stay at the lodge and we fell in love. Not just with the lodge itself, but with their pillows . I would like to order them, but, the website has 2 choices. Does anyone know if the pillows provided are the down alternative or the magic gel? Any help is appreciated.

I would call the Lodge and ask for the director of housekeeping. They would know as they would still have new ones in boxes.

That is so great to know. My DH has a hard time with pillows...but these sound great. Another thing not to worry about.
