Request

OK- I am only on page 6, so I still have a few more to go.

Does anyone know of a bunk bed room with a view of the castle? I know some rooms that have a view, but not sure if any of them have bunk beds

thanks!

Wow - you guys make a compelling argument for upgrading to WL! I want to stay there so bad (and so does my 5-yr-old!) but I am not sure I can justify the extra $1000 for the week!

Great pictures, everyone!

I love this thread. I really love this thread. This has to be my favorite thread of all time! I've been struggling this week with a decision: WL or AKL. Each and every time I see this thread, I KNOW the answer has to be WL. Of course, then I start thinking, I could see a girafe from my room and I'm back to AKL. Of course, I'd have to pay big for the Savannah View. I'm starting to think that there isn't a bad view at WL (except the dumpters in back). Thanks to all that contributed.

I go back and forth also on this but always end up at WL. This upcoming trip will be my second at WL! I'm really excited! The Mods and Poly are my favorites! I like the spreadout layout of those resorts. But what makes me pick WL over AKL is the location. I just like being closer to everything.

For great information about your stay at the Wilderness Lodge you should visit the FAQ Thread, the first page has loads of information and there is a post about all the room locations and views. Just click on the link below.

Thanks for the posting the pics Eliza61! From other threads it sounds like you had a great trip! Other than strollers. It's gone beyond a game for DH and I to avoid them - we always come back with bruises on our ankles and it's a look of fear on our faces when we see them bearing down on us!!

You are making me soooo "home"sick. I can hardly wait to stay again in December. Maybe I will go by for a visit next month, to show Dcousin (9) where we are staying, since she has never stayed there before.

We just returned and had a castle facing bunk bed room. It was room number 6016. We were able to watch wishes at night. It was truely amazing! It was a wooded view with a view of the castle right between two pine trees. I'll post pictures soon. I haven't had a chance to download onto the computer yet. I only took 860 pic.
