I would think so only if you can score a room on the 6th floor in the north wing. By day your view will be of the garbage and various service trucks. Not lovely. But, by night, you will get your own view of the fireworks from MK.
I was able to see this view from the 6th floor hallway windows. My room was courtview which was lovely because of the silver creek falls and the pool. But if I were on the other side of the hallway I would have had the fireworks from my own balcony.

I totally think it would be worth it! The atmosphere is just wonderful - if you can't tell we absolutely love it It is one of the less expensive of the deluxe resorts and along with location has so much to offer. We also enjoy relaxing on the white sand beach and watching all the boats on the lake. I don't really know much about standard view rooms, my only experience is woods view. I request 'North wing, upper floor' for a MK fireworks view! I just think the woods view is so calming, kind of a retreat after a busy day in the parks.

Not sure how much you have read but upon check in you can request to be Flag Family. Very cool experience, you go on top of the building and help raise the flags for the day. The view up there is amazing. I was shocked to see how close everything seemed!

You are right disneymami about that view - that MK view is our favorite! We didn't even find the service trucks/etc to be bothersome. We could watch the monorail and even see the Polynesian from our balcony too, not to mention the seemingly private viewing of 'Wishes' from our room each night. My request is usually in the Woods View category 'North Wing, Upper Floor'.

Does "north wing, upper floor" consist of any bunk bed rooms? We are slated to have a bunk bed room (my kids' request) -- would be wonderful if we could see the fireworks from our room too!

We are back from our 6 nights at WL. It was a tale of ups and downs. We were a little disapointed in a few things but overall it was a wonderful and beautiful place. Out of EVERYONE at the resort Bell Services or at least the bag valets were the absolute best! They were very helpful with everything we needed. We were horrified with the WCC, long story I will add in my TR. But loved the RFC.

We booked a standard room and ended up with a pretty good deal. We did face the delivery area if we looked down but that turned out perfect for us. But we also faced the CR and MK and had a perfect view of Wishes!

As for the noise outside we didn't hear it if the patio door was closed. We however ended up leaving the door cracked everynight after the first since we are so use to the noise where we live it was just to quiet for us. The noise outside reminded us of home. It helped us sleep.

yes, we had bunk beds in our north wing, 6th floor room. Room 6049. I'll never forget it. But ours was courtview, quite lovely with a view of the falls and the pool and the lake.

Would you share some of the highs and lows with us?

Hello all! We are staying at the great WL the first week of January 2010. We stayed there back in 2007, so we thought we would return again, but this time, staying club level for our first time. I was wondering if anyone knows if you can get wireless internet access at club level. I have read here that you can get it down in the lobby, but we were hoping perhaps there was a "hotspot" up at club level perhaps near the lounge. We stayed at Yacht Club last year and were lucky enough to have a room right above the lobby so we were able to get the wireless connection(for free!)

No, no,no, those red signs with the word STOP on them are optional if they have a white border.
I hope you like Debbie Gibson? I did not and got busted at a DECA National Convention for skipping her concert!
