I try to request North Wing because of the views of the Castle at night, I love watching it change colors. I have actually woken during the night and gone outside to just sit and watch the Castle.

Viewing Wishes is also great from these rooms, even though one floor down the view is the Standard View Rooms.

How quiet are the rooms at the resort? My fiance and I are planning our Disneymoon for May 2009, and we both love the looks of the WL (we loved the GCH at Disneyland).

I tend to be a light sleeper though, and don't like it when I can hear people talking in the rooms next to us, because I will be awake with them. (My fiance will sleep through anything!) Are the rooms pretty soundproof? At the GCH we could barely hear people in the halls, and we rarely heard voices next to us (only a very loud child once in a while). Is it like this at the WL?

Thanks for your help!

I found the rooms very quiet, never heard a peep from our neighbours.

Do we share a life? EXACTLY the same story here. There is no way we would have gone this year without the code, DH has always wanted to stay WL--we researched it on our first trip, passed it by for AKL and almost passed it by this trip for CR, but came back because it was cheaper and DH REALLY wanted to stay here.

Oh yes, me too. This thread is NOT helping me be patient and wait for October.

Can anyone tell me the closest place to WL to buy wine? We'd like to keep a bottle or 2 in the room to save some $ . We will have a car.

Also, what is the average price range for cocktails or a glass of wine at restaurants? Obsessive planner here!!!

Answer*** yes, there is a freezer. I found a picture on Allears showing it.
Mrs. Disney Ron,

I just returned from the Lodge and I looked at our fridge. It did not have a freezer in it. It was just as your picture, but no freezer. Now, I am not sure if the rest of the rooms had different fridges.

OK, I know of two places that are not very far. They are both down by DownTown Disney. One is Goodings (S.R. 535 & I4; 407-827-1200) and the other is ABC Liquor (11951 So. Apopka-Vineland; 407-239-0775). My preference would be the ABC store because they will have a very nice selection and their prices are much lower than Goodings. ABC is just about 1/4 mile from Goodings (which is the closest). Mapquest them and you will see.

As for prices for cocktails: approximately $5.00 to $10.00 per cocktail. Martinis are closer to $8.00.

Wine will run around $4.00 to $8.00 a glass.

Now, you could purchase some really nice wines in the Mercantile. But they will be a little pricey (but not bad). But as you said, you have a car , so I would venture out.

Also, in Epcot, drinks can run from $6.00 for beer to $10.00 - $12.00 for a glass of champagne.

Thanks to Dizneykid we have the new prices for the boat and bike rentals for Teton Boat & Bike Rental @ Wilderness Lodge, I have updated the rental prices on Page 1.

I am working on a post for the Health Club, what Sturdy Branches offers and a price list. I will add the new information to Page 1 when I have all the information.

Thanks

Sorry it took me a few days to get the answer to your question. Yes Study Branches does have prenatal massage therapists, you will need to call in advance and depending on which trimester you are in they can schedule you.

Ok, the information on Sturdy Branches Fitness Center with rates and treatments are now located on page 1 post # 3.

Thanks once again to Dizneykid for picking up the new prices on her recent trip. She called me Saturday morning and I had her running all over the Lodge "THANK YOU" Jeanne.
