They will hold your luggage

If you arrive and your room is not ready bell services will hold your luggage --it does not matter if you flew or if you drove. Have a great trip!

I posted this on a separate thread, but does the WL have comfortable chairs in the room? My sister is having shoulder problems and can't lay down for long. Do you think they could maybe let us borrow out of the hall or something if they don't have one in the room? It's a lot to ask, I know, but I'm really worried she will be up all night for 5 nights. Thanks!

To be truthful the chairs in the room aren't what I would call comfortable, nice desk chairs but not comfy. I went over to AllEars and found these photos so you can see them:




There are nice comfortable chairs in several locations through out the Lodge but I don't believe they could really be relocated to a guest room. Plus the room size would also be a factor.


I guess you could always ask.

This is a photo of the 4th floor area that also has nice chairs.


Now if you book a Deluxe room or a 1-bedroom over at the Villas she would have very nice comfy chairs or couches she could use.

OK, I'll post here what I posted in the last one.

I made a booking in a deluxe (junior) suite about a month ago, and I still haven't heard from customer support (from the concierge. Is this normal? I know they have my correct email. Does anyone have the email so I write to them?

Thanks?

This is the address from an e-mail I got from the wilderness lodge planning office regarding an upcoming stay on the concierge level Wilderness.Lodge.Itinerary.Planning@disneyworld.co

Just so you know they did not contact me first: I had called regarding booking something and they e-mailed me back with all the info that it was booked.

Good Luck

Beckie,

Thanks for starting up this new thread and doing everything you do to keep it going. I can't believe I have been lurking and posting here for 5 years.

We'll, we were lucky enough to receive a 40% off code in the mail the other day. It was enough to make me book 8 nights at the end of August. The rate is $178 including tax for a woods view bunk bed room. I think rack rate including tax would be around $290 per night. We weren't planning on a return home trip this year, but I think it's a deal we can't pass up.

Now the obsessive planning begins...

I did answer you question yesterday...It was the first post I answered on this new thread.

Even though Disney may have your correct E-Mail your ISP may be blocking the mail from your server as junk mail.

This is the information I have:
Wilderness Lodge Itinerary Planning Office
407-824-2466 phone
407-824-3162 fax

wdw.wlodge.itinerary.planning.@disney.com

Hope this helps.
Beckie


Updated new information:
The 200 day mark is the latest date you should wait to hear from the Planning Office. If you haven't received a call by then you need to be sure you contact the IPO asap.

You are all very nice, but remember all the other great Wilderness Lodge Vets that have helped gather the information. I just started the new thread we all have to work to keep it going.

As with the last few threads I always keep the information on my first post updated through the year/years, so if anyone receives any new info just let me know and I'll either add it to the first page or correct old information we have posted.


Tardin

That's a great rate for the Lodge, you know we will expect photo's.

You and I started posting about the same time here on the Wilderness Lodge thread, 5 years ago Where has the time gone?

Everyone have a great trip home,
Beckie

Hi everyone!!

I received the 40% off coupon in the mail at the end of last week and immediately called to book a room for October. This is my first time staying at Wilderness Lodge (I have wanted to for SO long). All that was available was Courtyard View. Are all rooms of this type good or should I be requesting/avoiding certain areas?

Thank you for all the information. The explanation of room location was excellent. However, since I have never been to the WL I can't for the life of me decide which room location to request. Okay, to be honest I can't even follow all the descriptions! I know this can be subjective, but does anyone have a preference? We are booked in a Deluxe Room.

When booking I told WDTC the only deluxe resort I would not stay in was the WL. We live on a farm in Oregon and visit DL a few times a year. We stay at the Grand Californian when we go to Anaheim. It was way too similiar to the GCH for my taste. The reservationist thought that was a shame since it's his favorite resort and he could get our family of 6 into a room for much less money than a full suite. Suddenly, I felt a growing appreciation for the WL. My husband is thrilled. It is exactly where he wanted to stay!! I have to admit I am excited as well!
