They have contests also, like hula hoops, and the cake walk (magical chairs without the chairs). They were giving out some great prizes too!! I think the prizes were games, dvd's and such!!

It does get very loud, but the kids were having a blast.
that sounds great!! thanks for the info!

What do they show the movies on down by the beach? Do they have a projector and screen setup or something? How large is the screen?

Movies at the lodge

I don't believe that they show movies directly at the lodge. I know they show them at the nearby Ft. Wilderness campground (accessible by walking path or boat). The movies at the fort are great. They are shown on a fairly large screen after a sing-a-long with Chip and Dale. You can roast marshmallows as well. The current (April) movie schedule is on the boards here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2136471

The only other Disney resort that I know shows movies is the Yacht/Beach Club on the beach. Their screen is much smaller though.

Hope that helps!

I'm glad they are showing movies on the beach now...that sounds like a great wau to let the kids unwind without going straight to the room. Of course....It will probably be mighty cold sittong out there in December, but I'm crossing my fingers we get lucky witht he weather when we are there!

Does anyone know when Ranger Stan is officially retiring? I have heard in July and September. We are old friends and I would love to see him again in September during our visit.

I just upgraded our room from ASMo to WL for the last 2 nights of our September trip and I am so excited. I'm a WL (and Deluxe Resort!) newbie and I can't wait to see it in person because the pictures look gorgeous. The best part is, it's a surprise for the DBf. He still thinks we're staying at ASMo!

so sorry if this has been asked before...

Do they really do massages at sturdy branches? I know this is not a spa resort but I assume they must have a massage room in there if they offer this. Are there robes? Are there different specialty massages? Can we book in advance and who should I call? Thank you so much. This thread is invaluable!
