It is a fairly long walk from the boat launch to the monorail at the Contemporary. Then once you get there you may be waiting for the monorail. I would wait for the MK boat.

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

I can't wait to see the Christmas tree. Well, I have actually been waiting for 12 years, so 97 more days, I think I can make. Wonder when they put it up? Think I will ask and maybe next time we go in the Fall, I'll try to be there and see if they will let me help. Could you imagine decorating a tree that BIG.

I'm glad you like the pictures. Unfortunately, we didn't just recently return from WL. Those are pictures from our 2004 trip. But, in January we're going back to WL and staying in a 2 bdrm villa. It's my favorite resort. Here's a few more pictures to feed our WL addiction. In 2004 we were there for 14 days and had booked a Silver Falls pool view room for 3 nights, and a standard view room for the rest of the trip. Disney doesn't like to move you, so got to spend the entire trip in the pool view room. Our room was 4th from the end nearest the boat dock. Our room number was 2011. It was a great location.


Here's a close up of our balcony


Here's a picture of Ranger Stan. We had just taken the lodge tour.

ITA. We just got back from a wonderful stay and that was my only disappointment. We booked a table but were put in the area partitioned off from the main room so we could hear all the fun going on but couldn't see or be a part of it - very disappointing but I didn't know there was a separate section when I booked the table. Will post pics of the Lodge in a day or so. Apart from that meal everything was perfect.

Thanks for sharing the pictures! 14 days at the lodge - what fun. We've never done more than 5. And how great that you didn't have to change rooms. Love to see more pics when you get back from your January trip!

One of the many delights of WL is the wildlife - extremely tame rabbits and lots of ducks who like to use the pool!!! Even when there were loads of people in it they came in for a swim too - the kids loved it as you can imagine!!
