All Courtyard Views aren't the same...to receive the view most guest want when paying for a Courtyard View you need to add Inner Courtyard View to your reservation. There are Courtyard View rooms that actually have a view of the Villas and the small Hidden Springs Pool.

If you want the view of Silver Creek Springs Pool, Silver Creek, the waterfall, the geyser and Bay Lake, besure to add this to your request.

While I prefer the Courtyard rooms that are off the main Lobby, many enjoy the North Wing for a great view of the Electrical Water Pageant out on Bay Lake. While the views of the pool are better from the South Wings. I am posting a map from page 1 of the room locations so you can decide what you may prefer. Just click on the link below.

WELCOME, I hope you enjoy your first visit to the Lodge.

I think if you reread the post about the Deluxe Rooms while following along with the room location map it will make more since, open two screens on your CP and view at the same time. (Hope it helps) You will see that most of the Deluxe Rooms are located at the very end of the North or South Wings near Bay Lake.

As for preference I have stayed in the Deluxe Rooms several times and I love the views of Bay Lake from the South Wing at the very end of the hallway, it has an excellent view of the Electrical Water Pageant. BUT as the Deluxe Rooms are now Club Level access I would prefer a room closer to the elevators so you can be on the 7th floor in a second. The Deluxe Rooms # 2123, 3123, 4123, 5123 & 6123 are located right around the corner from the mid-way elevators making a quick trip to Club Level possible. They also have a Courtyard View that is very nice. Of these rooms I would request either 5123 or 6123.

MAGICinMYHEART-

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Not only for some specific room numbers, but for a nice guide to computer use without being condescending. I truthfully never thought about opening 2 screens!

I am excited about the WL, but a little apprehensive since we are so familiar with DL. I feel like I'm traveling to a foreign country. I read posts and have to stop to assimilate all the abbreviations. Maybe I will become WDW billingual. Thank you again!

OH, I just had a flash back to my first trip to DL, I know WDW like the back of my hand but standing in Disneyland was like being in a foreign country.

The one thing you will love about the Magic Kingdom and the other WDW Parks is how wide the walkways are.

lol... I wish I knew... all I know is it's going by faster and faster....

My two previous trips we stayed in a wood view room overlooking the otter pond. I like the northwing upper floors becasue it's quite.

However, I may want to request a room off the lobby this trip. I don't think I've enjoyed the lobby as much as I could have since it was a bit of a walk back there from our room. Especially since my girls will be 10 and 12 yrs old this trip... I may need to be able to make a quick excape in the morning when the two of them and my wife are getting ready.

Since I have a woods view bunk bed room booked, I'm not sure how many options there will be off the lobby and what the view is like.

Anyone have any experience with woods view rooms off the lobby???

Thanks!

I am writing a new post that will cover all the request for room views and where to request. I will add it to one of the post on the first page when completed but it may take a few days...

As you enjoy the North View what about requesting one of the Woods View rooms located over WCC on floors 4th, 5th or 6th floor, there will be some landscaping below but you may still be able to see some of the fireworks.

Thanks Beckie, I think that's what we are going to request.

a few WL questions

Greetings!
We will be staying at the WL this Sept/Oct for the first time.
I have read through several WL threads and found them very helpful, thank you for all your input/views/opinions and pics.
I have a question about the kiddie pool, is it a zero entry? and anyone have a pic of it? Also in the main pool will I be able to take the baby (will be 10 mos at the time) into the water in a baby raft/floaty? Or should I plan to get a water sling? And did I see that I can rent a life jacket for the week to be used in the pool?

Thanks so much for sharing all your knowledge and experiences- we are so very excited for our first WL stay.

We just returned from our stay at the lodge 1/31-2/6. The lodge was beautiful as always and we truly enjoyed our stay. We were booked in a woods view room and ended up in a woods view with bunk beds. It was room 2006 we could see the otter pond and had a woods view. I will post pics of our room as soon as I get them loaded.

If anyone has any questions, I will try to answer.

The kiddie pool is 1 ft and is not zero entry. Last trip we brought a ring for my youngest dd and no one ever said we could not use it.

Beckie, great thread. I couldn't believe when I came home we were on a new thread. Great job.

Hi all,
Great thread! We will also be staying at WL for the first time this August. I just received my confirmation from CRO and it says (JB) next to Woods view. Does anyone have any idea what JB stands for? I did not request bunk beds as we need 2 queens. I am wracking my brain trying to figure out what it means.

TIA!

JB is the Wilderness Lodge code for Woods View.

Oh, ok. Thanks for the response. What does JB stand for then? Seems funny to type out Woods View and then put a (JB) next to it. Just curious...
