so confused

Ok... 2 weeks to go---- and I am so baffled at 1) WHAT ROOM TO REQUEST
2) how to request it....

If I have read things right, courtyard rooms would not have a view of wishes... right? we had a standard room, 6th floor in 2003 and could see wishes. but the north would block the south and the north faces away from wishes? right?


and as far as calling vs faxing vs making a notation on your orig ressie... (I did that last one in requesting NON 1st floor with patio--- would get nervous wiht extra entry)
I am confused...

thanks so much for all the help on this and everything--- Jill

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

Right, Courtyard view rooms do not have a view of MK! You are either looking at the woods or service area. To be closer to the lobby, you have to look over the service area.

I am trying to finish writing my review of the Club Level and I will post it. The Old Faithful Club was just fabulous, we have no complaints at all! The food was wonderful and plentiful, the staff was great all around (Especially Lisa from Scotland and this other guy whose name I can't remember!) Housekeeping was fine, loved the turn down service guy!

I also have pictures, but can't figure out how to get them off the camera I used for this trip.

deluxe rooms

When I look at the drawing of the deluxe room it looks like there are two balconies. One from the sitting area and one from the bedroom. Is this the case or is it all just one large balcony with two entrances?

Some of the rooms even though they face Bay Lake may not have an unobstructed view of the lake.

In the rooms 5000, 4000, 3000, 2000 and 1000 the main view would be toward Bay Lake, but the bedrooms are on the north side of the lodge, this is why Desparatelydisney was able to see Wishes. I would think that only room 5000, and possibly 4000 and 3000 maybe able to see Wishes.

The South Wing doesn't have any views of the Magic Kingdom or Wishes because the North Wing would be between them and the MK.

Thank you times a million! I really appreciate all of your advice and the explanations. It all makes perfect sense now. Thanks for taking the time to help me play catch up!

Wendylou

When I stayed in the deluxe rooms they had a regular size balcony just outside the living room section, and a much smaller standing room only balcony off the bedroom section. Below are a few photo's of the small balconies.

The Lodge has many activities that are scheduled during the Holidays, the Sleigh Rides (information posted on page 1) is very popular and many guest not staying at the Lodge book this event. Each night they bring special entertainment in. I have enjoyed choirs, bell ringers, brass quintets and many others that visit during the holidays. Just be sure to check your activity schedule when you check-in.

Thank you

Thank you magicinmyheart. My DD9 loves to read and have some alone time. It looks big enough for her to bring her pillow and book and catch a good 15 mins of alone time. It will be perfect for her! Bonus after Bonus...I love it.

Okay, I reread the 1st page for like the hundredth time (Lots and lots of great info there! ) but I didn't see a list of things that come in the room. I mean like soap, shampoo, and such. I know that the products are H2O products. I guess my main concern is the DD wants bath gel for showers. Do they have bath gel in the room already or do I need to pack some? If they already have some then I won't take any. (One less thing to have that might leak. )
Thanks to everyone with their help. I am getting so excited. We'll be at WL in less than two weeks.

I just went and checked my supplies from my last visit, we had Facial and Bath size bar soaps, Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion & Shower Gel in 1.25 oz bottles. All the products are H2O and are very nice.

LIVE from the Wilderness Lodge

I started a report up in the LIVE report section. So if you have any questions please stop by and I'll try to answer them

We lucked into a magical upgrade into a "bear faced room" and watched the water parade from our room

Atchley - I just double checked our "bath" products and there is no shower gel just shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, and lotion. However, I did see it for sale down in the mercantile
