My sister and I are so looking forward to our visit in April.

What did you book?

New one for me. I think Beckie might be right with it being bunks. If it's not, I will try and find out.

My question is for those of you who have been to WL in the last 6 months or so. What kinds of WL themed merchandise/souvenirs do they have these days?

I didn't buy anything WL-themed except for the mini-character totem pole in 2005 when I stayed there, and this May I am determined to correct that error in judgement! Thanks in advance!
Just got back, and they had everything that Burberryplaid said. The mugs are new, I think they are really nice. The merchantile also had a snow globe witht he lodge in it and it's battery operated and lights up!!

They also had new Swarovski crystal tops for women. They are beautiful, but very pricey.

Of course, they always have the bear figurines, plaques and wine holder. And now have soap slices with crazy names like "moose spit", etc.

Right now the buy $40 get a Walt Disney canvas bag for $10 is in process. The bags are sturdy and nice.

Hope this helps.

What did the mugs look like?

Also, do you remember how much the snow globes are? We purchase a snow globe for DD each place we visit.

Thansk!

Not sure but I think the snow globes were around $25.

I saw two porcelain mugs. Both had the lodge painted on it. One was more rustic. I actually bought one and have it at my desk.

We decided to flip to a studio in the villas because it was the same price (as the CYBB we had) and it has a microwave and a tad more space. I would REALLY like to have a 1BR but none available at the pin code rate.

Can anyone give me any advice about views to request? Didn't see anything on the first page. Also, are most of the units lockoffs or "singles"? I know DH will not be thrilled with a lockoff but perhaps he will just have to deal.

Views are usually not requested when staying over at the Villas as most are views of the woods, you need to request location.

If you click on the link below it will give you the location of each Studio over at the Villas.The Studio's in lavender are the dedicated studios. You could request 1st floor near elevator and pool area, that way you will have a better option of receiving a dedicated studio.

Good Luck

Wouldn't the sugars from the ice cream be better used early in the day instead of late in the evening?

There are only 20 dedicated studios. With the Villas primarily being a DVC resort I would imagine that DVC member requests are filled first. It may be very hard to get a dedicated one. Good luck!

I saw someone answered the monorail question thanks I actually forgot I asked that.

I have one other tinsey tiny question for those VETS that stay here often, how are the beds? I'm spoiled when it comes to a comfy bed and the bed at CSR was just very uncomfortable to me. I'm hoping since this is a deluxe resort the beds are alot better. So Vets how are the beds at WL?

Reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally? Hmmm.... We don't have the BB, but we do have the CY view. What was your pin code for? Ours is 40% off. Where can we find the prices for the villas. DH would LOOOOOVE a villa, even if it was a studio!

Never mind, answered my own question. Disneyworld.com - duh!

Looks like it would be $202 more for us for the week in a Studio versus our CY view.

Now, gotta research the Villas to see if the $202 would be worth it.

Thanks for the hint! I would have never, ever thought they were even similar in price!

Yup, we had the 40% off pin, and it was within $20 (total, not per night) of the price of the CYBB room we had booked. I was a little torn because I thought the CY would be more "in the middle of things" and the villas would be a further walk...but really, quiet and peaceful is kinda what we're inclined to prefer, and I'm really pleased to get a tad more room. Plus the sofabed gives you somewhere to sit during the day, and I think (?) you get a DVD player too, and definitely a microwave. So hopefully it's a good tradeoff.

I found the beds to be very comfortable. I fell right asleep at night and slept the whole night away.

Thanks again Beckie, I didn't notice that link on the front page and it's a big help. I'm thinking it's best to just request the side away from the busses and not worry about the lockoff deal.

Hi Beckie! Thanks so much for this fantastic thread. It's less than 6 months now until we cross the pond and I'm getting excited (well, I've been excited for months already!!! ) and the info on here is brilliant!
