I finally made it through the whole thing, and feel at least a little bit wiser!

Finally today, I found a standard view room during free dining dates, and I booked it. I am so excited to be heading back to Wilderness Lodge, and with a three year old, I am so looking forward to the boat to the Magic Kingdom!

So thanks again, and I look forward to chatting with you all, and sharing my experience when we get back!
Woo-hoo! Congrats on your trip!

Courtyard View Bunkbed rooms

We have a ressie for WL CY BB in June. I did ask for "Inner Courtyard", 4th or 5th floor, but would like feedback on what folks think the best bunkbed rooms are. I wish I knew which room numbers were BB. In April my wife and I had a wonderful inner CY room near the waterfall that faced "out", towards the lake. I wonder if any of those rooms like _035, _037, _123, _125, _127 or the Bear Face have BB.

Just switched my reservation from POFQ back to WL. I have to say I feel much better now going back since we haven't been to this resort since 2003.

Roaring Forks Drink Station

Hi Everyone,

My husband, son and myself are staying at the Lodge for the first time in October. We will probably be buying a couple of the refillable mugs (well, at least 1) at Roaring Forks. Can anyone tell me specifically what drinks are offered in the mugs? I think I read somewhere that frozen Coke is offered at some resorts but not all and some said that apple juice was available while others said you had to buy it separately.

We will be making a grocery store stop on the way from the airport and would like to know what we should buy there vs what we can get in the mugs.


Thanks!!

If I remember correctly at WL, there are only your basic Coke products (Coke, Sprite, Cherry Coke?, Mr Pibb/Dr Pepper?, a root beer). I don't remember seeing anything other than that, except coffee and maybe unsweet tea (what are they thinking?).

The Wilderness Lodge Resort has a "Refillable Mug" program at Roaring Fork you may purchase a mug for around $12.49 and are entitled to "free" refills for the duration of your stay. The refills are available from the beverage dispensers and usually include: coffee, sodas, hot tea, ice tea, and hot chocolate. The Lodge doesn't have Frozen Coke nor are any juice drinks available for refill at no charge.

Does Roaring Forks have a "child's special" everyday. or are their only options PBJ and chicken nuggets, each and everyday. I thought I saw a picture somewhere where it said "child's special" on a blackboard, or something like that.

Red face Couples Massage?

I was looking at the prices for the spa, and didn't see a couples massage. Is this only available at other spas, or is this a special request? I'm actually interested in the couples instructional massage. So far, I haven't come across any information about it at WL, so I'm wondering if it doesn't exist. Any insight (and experience) is appreciated.

Which Standard View Rooms?

Hi guys! My mom, husband and I will be staying at the WL for the first time this September for free dining!! We are so excited, having only ever stayed at the moderates before. However, because this is a bit of a splurge, we requested the standard view rooms. I've read the description of the standard view rooms on page 1 of this thread, but am looking for additional comments from folks who may have stayed in those rooms. I am a little concerned about the noise complaints (either from WCC or the delivery area) as I'm a bit of a light sleeper. Any advice on which rooms to request? Thanks so much in advance!

There are only 9 rooms in the standard view category that overlook WCC. I would add a note to your reservation that you want to stay in the North Wing, this will keep you away from those rooms.

As a sidenote, we've been to WL twice now and paid for a standard view but we've been upgraded to courtyard both times for free so I'd say there is a good chance you'll get an upgrade. There's no guarantees of course, but I think you have a chance.

Have a great trip!

The Bunk Beds are located all around the Lodge so I'm sure theyhave bunk beds in the area you want, just not sure about the Bear Faced rooms I've stay in a few of them and never seen any bunk beds.
