Well, I finally got my AAA agent to finalize my ressie for Dec 13-21 and we have a woods view room and supposed to have a roll-in shower for mom. I just couldn't justify spending the extra $1200 on club level, maybe for our 10th Anniversary in 2011. We will still be at WL and that is what counts.

Has anyone shipped themselves a package to WL? Was wondering if they have a holding fee or not. We won't be in till Sunday afternoon and since Monday is a holiday, there will be no deliveries then, so wanted to see if it got their Friday would they have any problems holding it for us that long and if they charge anything. This seems to be different by resort, so thought I would ask.

TIA

We are arriving on Thursday morning. Our flight is supposed to arrive around 9 am. We wanted to stop at Wal-Mart before and get milk and some food. If our room isn't ready, do they have a fridge to store the milk and other stuff that needs to be kept cold? I know POFQ would do that for us, but our room was ready when we got there.

Thanks!

I'm not going to say they are stationary but they are very heavy, most guest just request Bed Rails from housekeeping they work really well and would be safer. If you book Bunk Beds they have the bed rails already on the bed.

I have never had to ship or mail anything to the Lodge so I'm no real help. Other then calling the Lodge direct for their policy about storage/holding charge.

I know that guest leave packages for other guest with bell services for a day or two, so your should be fine having it delivered on Friday just make sure your arrival date and reservation # is marked clearly on the package.

Good Luck

No there is no fee for having a package shipped to WL we shipped my wifes wedding dress and our welcome bag items shipped down in 05 and there were no extra fees then, also yes the bellhops can keep cold items cold for you.

Bell Servives will have refrigerators for food and medical usage. (All food *MUST* be factory sealed) They will also have a locked area for valuables such as laptops, cameras, and other electronics. Just make sure they know which items (bags) need refrigeration and that they place a luggage clam ticket on the items.

We will be staying at WL June 1-7 on our first trip to Disneyworld. I was wondering where is the best place to watch the Electrical Water Pageant?

At the boat dock or beach, if you want to be close by.

I can confirm this. We had water shipped when we were there a couple of weeks ago and they held it for us. There was no fee charged.

Thank you!! We will be coming from Wal-Mart so everything should be sealed!

Smile 1st family trip to WDW and WL!!

I've finally read all 60 pages of this thread and am so excited. We will be going on our first family trip to WDW and will be staying at the WL. I'm a teacher and we get a week off for Thanksgiving so will be going 11/21-11/27. We're even getting there on a night of MVMCP ( but $175 for the tix for 3 ) My daughter will have just turned 5 and we'll be celebrating her b-day along with our anniversary while we're there. I guess we'll have several buttons (1st timers, b-day and anniversary)!

Oh when, oh when, will they post the Nov. operating hours??? Our 180 day for ADR's is coming up!!

Thanks for verifying that.

So the UPS/FedEx label should look like this:

Wilderness Lodge
My Name
5/25/08 - 5/30/08 (my dates, or just arrival date?)
Reservation # (same as confrimation #?)
901 Timberline Drive
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

Thanks again everyone.

Congratulations!

We have been to Disney before, but never just the three of us, so we're very excited to be staying at the Wilderness Lodge in September.

I hope your trip is wonderful.

WL construction photos???????

We would love to see how the WL was built; does anyone have or know where we can find any photos of the WL when it was being built in the early 90's? Thanks!!
