The balcony on the 6th floor Deluxe Room isn't enclosed.. not even part it. It has wooden slats for the balusters instead of metal balusters. The Deluxe Room on the 5th floor does have the metal rods for the balusters, the views are the same from each floor. It is also the same view that the Presidential Suite has, I think it's one of the best views available.

The enclosed balconies that we refer to are completely enclosed with solid material either wood or stone work, you have to stand to see over the balcony the rail is approx. 4 feet high. When you are sitting down you have compete privacy.

Both the Woods View and the Courtyard View rooms are great, but the Inner Courtyard View is a little more spectacular so I would keep the room you have booked. Sitting out on the balcony people watching is always a nice way to spend a few hours.

I know my nieces and nephews have enjoyed every activaty that they have done while staying at the Lodge. The Duck Races are great for everyone.

On my last trip my DH and I were relaxing out behind Trout Pass Pool Bar and the lifeguards brought small kites out, the children just started appearing from all over.

At first we tried to just stay out of everyones way, there were more children then adults to assist so we started helping pick colors for the designs (each child colors an original design on their kite) soon we were all running up and down the beach with kites in flight. (Yes, I still have my Kite)

One of the best afternoons we have had at the Lodge and none of the children belonged to us that trip. Trust me I hadn't planned on spending the afternoon helping little ones color bears, trees and stars on kites...then running back and forth holding a string. Remember we were behind Trout Pass Pool Bar.

So the best advise I can give you about the activities is try them all and join your childern at play.

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

I would stick with the courtyard view. There is nothing to see with a woods view but the tree tops! We wound up with that in May and didn't even wind up sitting out there. The only good thing was we had a great view of Wishes at night! Didn't know what the noise was till I looked outside. So for 10 minutes every night we used the balcony!

I have to get my new counter figured out...sorry about the old halloween one from almost 3 years ago

Question about "chair saving" by the pool? It will be just me and ds- no extra eyes from dh this trip to watch our son. And I remember that the water parks and during a recent cruise that chair saving is an issue--- IS this a problem at this resort? it always happens to some extent but is it excessive at the WL?

Would rather have a sippy tag than the other kind
It is SUPER easy to get started in that

I am here now, at the WL, on the Club Level, if anyone has any questions or if you want any specific pictures. Very different experience here over our stay the last three days at the Yacht Club Concierge level.

OK, very strange, I JUST posted that post above and yet it shows the person who posted after me as many minutes later and not onlly that but they edited it a long time after. That isn't possible. Just seeing what time this post shows as posted..

Great photo

It happened to me as well. I posted right after the question about the fridge, but two other posts showed up before mine several minutes after I actually posted - so I edited it twice.

Something must be going on with the site tonight. Earlier today could not get on the site at all.

As for your WL vs YC stay - would very much like to hear your comparison!

Thanks! (wonder where this post will show up!!)

I would also like to hear your comparison, memorymaker. We usually stay at BC, but will be at WL in two weeks . How are the two different experiences? Thanks for your reply, we can't wait to get there.
