You aren't really chosen. Upon check-in, just ask if you can be flag family. They have a book and if they have any openings while you're there, they'll put your name in the book. You also get a certificate that you were Flag Family.

I showed DH all the pictures yesterday and he really liked the look of the resort. He told me to go ahead and book a trip for June 2009 at this resort.

I also booked us an ADR at Whispering Canyon in September so he can take a closer look at WL.

Thanks for all the great pics.

Here's some pictures of food at Whispering Canyon Cafe

Appetizer - BBQ chicken wings


Skillet


Steak dinner


We had a hard time getting our waitresses' attention since we ran out of butter and my daughter had 1 corn cobbette left. Our waitress brought out 3 large butter balls for that one piece of corn.


My daughter was having a little fun with the waitress and asked what was in the Triple Chocolate Layer Cake. "So there's chocolate in it....?", "So,,, there's only 3 kinds of chocolate in it?" When Allison brought out the cake, she had added a 4th kind of chocolate...., chocolate chips.

This is hilarious. I have bbeen to WCC lots of times but have never seen this one. I like the coffee filter bonnet the most.

WCC is one of our favorite restaurants. Each time you go it will be different. It depends on your waiter/waitress, and the guests themselves. We had trouble getting the attention of our waitress because she was with another table and ended up banning one of them to the corner, then to outside the restaurant. At WCC, it's really better the more crowded it is. Some of the castmembers tell corny jokes, others will take your camera and go around the room taking pictures of strangers. Don't go there if you're wanting a quiet dinner. For those of you that haven't been there before, it's only like this at dinner. It's much quieter for lunch. They do have a fabulous burger at lunch. Best I've ever had.

For all you experienced WL'ers-are concierge rooms any different than standard rooms?
Where does the boat go-straight to MK and back again?

Any photos of the Concierge lounge?

Love to see them-please share!

There are two boats - one will go Ft. Wilderness/Wilderness Lodge/Magic Kingdom, while the other will go Fort Wilderness/Wilderness Lodge/Contemporary Hotel.

I can't help you on the concierge room question.

Last FAll the routes were changed. The Red Flag Launch goes from the WL to the Magic Kingdom. The Blue Flag goes between WL / Ft. Wilderness / and the Contemporary. The Blue Flag usually circles one way in the morning and reverses in the afternoon. Can't help with Concierge either.

The boat to MK is probably 10 minutes or under. It's a slow, relaxing cruise, but it's quite close, so it doesn't take long.

The only thing that would add to your time would be if you have to wait for the boat to arrive...if it happens to get there or be there as you walk up, it'll be fast - but you might wait 20 minutes or so for the boat to arrive.

Then again, the same thing holds true for the bus!

Would you be better off to take any launch that comes and take the monorail from the contemporary?

Thanks for remembering the photos !!!

Hey Tinkerbell, thank you sooooooo much for remembering to post your photos when you returned. I loved all your "not typical" photos of the food, the buffet, & the hats.

I loved the photo of all the butter that your waitress brought your daughter for just one cob of corn, OH MY !!!! Too funny!!!

I will be sure to return the favor !!!

Keep the photos coming fellow Dis Members, I still have quite an addiction to feed !!!
