They call me "The Off-Topic Queen"

Off topic, but WL question: Does anyone know the pool hours?

I love this thread!! I've been looking at it daily to feed my WL addiction. We have a trip in December 7-14th, and we were originally booked in a MK view room at the Poly. I kept finding pictures of the WL at Christmas time. The more time kept ticking off my trip countdown, the more I was having to convince myself that I would be as happy at the Poly that I would have been at the WL. Finally I realized that going to WDW at Christmas time and not staying at the WL would be like someone putting a slice of Godiva chocolate cheescake in front of me and just letting me look at it, but not eat it. I made the change a couple of day ago and was able to get a courtyard view with bunk beds. Last night I was showing my sister pictures of the WL and telling her about the rooms with the bunk beds. My DS9 walked up and said "yeah I'm just not lucky enough for us to get a room with bunk beds." I told him that maybe if he is really good this summer and during school, that Mickey will suprise him with bunk beds. I have not told my DS's about the change in resorts. I can't wait until we get to our room at the WL and they see the bunk beds.

gread photos to follow....I feel a road trip coming on
Thanks! We've been DVCers since 2000; our home resort in the Boardwalk and I will admit that we have become quite the BW snobs - it's the only place we've stayed over the past eight years. Decided to mix things up a bit with this trip with my daughter. I want to teach her that change is good!

Thanks for the nice pictures. You are getting me even more excited for my trip in August. It will be my 3rd stay at the WL.
Looking forward to seeing more, when you have a chance.

Although many on these boards will shake their heads that you gave up being "On The Monorail" for the WL, we say you made the right choice. Especially for the time of the season you are going! The Christmas decorations and music just blend with the wood lodge theming, complete with fireplaces. We will be there the week before you, but here's wishing you all the most magical experience!

This is a brilliant site for WL info http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1710310
I found this info there:

Silver Creek Springs Pool and spas are open 24 hours (weather and maintenance permitting; please respect quiet hours 12AM - 7PM) Lifeguard on duty 9:00a.m.-10:00p.m.
Note* If No Lifeguard is on duty the slide will be closed but you can use the pool.

One quiet pool located at Villas, Hidden Springs Pool (No lifeguard on duty)
Kiddie pool
Three Jacuzzis (one Hot one Cold are located next to Silver Creek Springs Pool, one Hot at Villas next to Hidden Springs Pool)

Thank you and I hope that your trip is practically perfect in every way. I'm sure there may be some that may think I'm crazy. They just don't realize the greatness that is the WL. If we were going for our wedding anniversary, I may not have made the change. To me, the WL is just the place to be for Christmas time. I already have some Keelex's bought b/c I know when we walk into the lobby for the first time, the water works will start.
