Question for you experts on WL......

We are staying at WL in January. My sister is staying at CBR. We are trying to plan breakfast together at the Whispering Canyon Cafe at 8:00 a.m. She would need to leave CBR no later than 7:30 right?

How would she get to us that early? What time do the boats start running? I was wondering if she could catch a bus like she is going to a character meal and then take a boat or bus over to us at WL.

Here's the other tricky part....if Crystal Palace is going to be closed in January, then maybe going to MK to catch a boat or bus would not be possible due to the fact that they won't have a character breakfast???

Hope someone has a couple good suggestions. Thanks!!

She'll have to leave a heck of a lot earlier than 7:30. There are no direct buses from resort to resort. She'd have to take a bus to a theme park, then transfer to the bus for WL. I think that there can be as long as a 20 minute wait between buses too, so if she arrived at a park just as the WL bus was departing, she could wait a while.

As for CP being closed , CRT also does character breakfasts, so the MK hub would be open.

I don't know if it is the worst I'm bummed because I haven't booked my trip yet (hoping they extend the 4/3 deal into April). So waiting for the deal to be released is stressing me out! I'd love it if I was booked and my ADRs booked. OK, so I'm just jealous of you

Honestly, from CBR to WL, at that time of morning, I'd just take a Cab. She could easily get the character Breakfast Bus to MK, but will then have to try and get a bus or boat over to WL from there. She would have to allow at least an hour to do it that way, maybe more. I can't imagine that a cab would be anymore than $15. That's what we paid from AKL to WL, and that's farther than CBR to WL, I think.

This is a bit of a random question! I was wondering if the WL sells photo frames that are resort specific?

Has anyone seem them recently or even got a photo of one?

This is our 3rd stay at WL and I love getting a snowglobe each time, but thought it would be really nice to get a photoframe to match & put one of our wedding photos in it that we had taken there too.

Thanks for any help

Yes they do....I bought one in March while staying at WL. It has the totem pole of Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and the bear (forgot his name) on one side and the other side has a replica of the huge fireplace in the main lobby. Unfortunately we don't have it out yet, and is still in it's packing box because we are getting our house ready to move...so I guess it will be a new addition to a new home.

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!

All that being said, I do not think any noise we could hear was unreasonable. Maybe around typical dinner hour I could hear applause from WCC but it was pretty faint.

We sometimes use a white noise machine to help drown out some of the typical sounds when we travel.

Enjoy your trip - I think you will just love it
Thanks! I will have earplugs too (I can't even sleep with my DH I am so bad) but I will ask for an upper floor!

The Pool - your opinion????

Ok, the pool is really important to my family. That includes - places to sit, some shade available, drinks at the pool (and some food), the pool itself (is it crowded???), and the slide. And any info on the hot tub? Is there an additional 'quiet' pool or is there a deep end on the main pool?

Thanks for any info!

Hi- I am wondering if there is a microwave in the quick service food place? My kids like the mac and cheese cups and I would like to pack some if there is a microwave available. Thanks!

Yes, there is a microwave in the dining section of the RCC.

The pool is a nice small wonderful place to gather! As far as the slide being all that and a bag of chips..it really isn't that great but it's still a slide!!

In the main pool area, there are not a lot of shaded areas. Getting a table with an umbrella would be your best bet but over at the Villas Pool (no slide) there are more shaded areas.

The pool can get crowded because it's a smaller area than other pools, esp. in the summer!! The hot tubs at the main pool are nice but the hot tub at the villas pool tends to be less crowded.

Guests from FW used to hop the boat over to WL to "crash" the pool but now that they have redone their pool at FL with a slide, kid area, and hot tub, I'm going to be curious to see if it is less crowded when we're there in Dec.

The food is good. We always get one adult drink from the bar. My Ddad LOVES that they sell the WDW popcorn at the bar. Roaring forks is also close by so you'll see people get lunch and bring it to the pool area.

They do have towels at the pool for use. I'm not sure about the villas pool though???

The main pool has a bit of a deep end but no bigger than 6 ft I think? The little stream that starts in the lobby ends up in the pool so that's pretty cool!!

I hope that helps a bit! If you are looking for a 100% pool adventure YC/BC might be more for you but I'm sure you won't be upset with WL...just get there somewhat early to get a good spot!

I'll be staying there the same weekend!!! The only advice I can give you is that if you want a specific room request I would make it before the trip. It might not be granted but you can try! For example: we're booked courtyard view with bunk bed so I called and requested an Inner CY view of the main pool on an upper floor (we don't want a lower floor room).

That is really the only thing I can think of that you would need to do before coming!!
