Hey! We recently switched our ressies from the BC to the WL!!! We only stayed here one night a few years ago in the Deluxe Suite (we are a fan of 5), but our oldest DS isn't going this year-doesn't want to miss a week of school..anyhoo, we are booked now in a Courtyard View room.
We are wanting to upgrade to Standard room Club Level-but they keep showing no availability at this point --so if we don't get that, we will just be happy with a Courtyard View.
Couple of questions,...at Courtyard View, is there any requests I should make? I am gonna ask for a higher floor and a full balcony. and secondly, do any of you have pics of the recently reno'd rooms? I went back a few pages on this thread and didn't see any pictures of reno's...maybe I missed them...TIA!

The 7th floor of the South Wing will undergo a rehab starting July 7 - 27. From about July 7-13, the lounge will be closed and therefore, CL will be closed so there are no bookable rooms at that time. Is that when you're looking or are CL rooms just not available with your discount?

All rooms at WL have full balconies, so no need to request that. Do you want a view of Bay Lake and the geyser? Is so, you need to request an INNER or WL Courtyard View room. If you want a view of the villas then you would request an OUTER or VWL Courtyard View room. Keep in mind that some of the 6th floor rooms have balconies with solid railings that you can't see through.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to post them to the WL Information thread that's hyperlinked in my signature. There is a lot of information on the first page, including links to photos of the new rooms.

This is a slide show that I made from our trip in 2007 (link to my trip report is in my signature). Thanks to a friend who I had made a disc for, I just "rediscovered" the slide show and uploaded it to YouTube. We've been on many trips since then, but this is probably still one of my favorites!

I know this is an old post, but FD has been announced for some dates in Nov. Might be worth checking if you can still add it to your res.

We were 3 days away from a surprise trip to POR, and had to cancel due to DW illness, so reschedule to Nov 10-17, and decided if we had to delay our vacation, we were going to upgrade to WL, our first Deluxe, and have something awesome to look forward to! Happy to be staying at WL, and glad we get to see the Obsorne Family lights again, they start the day before we arrive! Love the World in November!

Very glad we didn't tell the kids, or we'd have to mega disappointed grumps to deal with! We were supposed to leave tomorrow

Hey!! we got the FD!!!! Made it even better!!! Glad you got to upgrade also and yes,..it's a good thing you didn't tell!! Just think, instead of leaving tomorrow and dealing with rain and heat,you can now enjoy November better! And we shares weeks! How cool!!!
Are you making a room request? I am thinking at this point that we are not....

I've never been to WL before, so wouldn't even know which room to request, we have two children, DS turns 9 the day before we go, and DD is 4, so proximity to the pool is a priority to us. Otherwise, just glad to be still going, and thrilled to be able to afford to go as often as we do, so in the end, we'll be happy with whatever we get, and enjoy. Nov is our favorite time to go anyway, so I guess it worked out! Glad you got FD, such a huge savings! This will be our 4th FD trip!
