When being chased by a bear, you don't have to outrun the bear. You just have to outrun the other guy.

Prices at Trading Posts

How are the food prices and selection at the Trading Posts? I am wondering if I should plan to buy our food (at least the cold food) there or if I should use one of the shopping services and have it delivered.

Thanks!!

As I recall, food was rather pricey in the @ the trading post, but still cheaper then eating out for every meal.
We just booked our trip for Jan. 2-9, 09, and are planning on bringing alot of food with us. We are driving so it's easy to just pack a few coolers.

LOTS of Disney VIP's stay at the cabins. Mainly for privacy. Not having to walk through a lobby or public area every time you have to go somewhere helps avoid crowds, and also having your private transportation right outside your door is a big plus too.

Also 118 and 120 are rarely used to help the housekeepers. Since the other cabin loops are a good half a mile away from the 100 loop, the housekeepers have to have one of their supply carts towed all the way out so they can clean those 2 cabins. Sometimes FW will put people in them, but this is pretty rare and often requests for these are not able to be accomidated do to housekeeping staffing.

Preferred cabin/loop?

Hi. I am getting ready to book my reservation for Nov/Dec 2008. Is there a particular loop that I should request (or cabin)?

Thanks!

Cabins with disabled access

Are the cabins with disabled access in one loop and spread throughout FW?

Are you getting a golf cart? If so, then there is little reason to prefer one loop over any other. If not, then you may want to request a loop near the pool or the bus stop. Also, you may want to request a cabin near the beginning of the loop as some of the loops are quite large and you could still have a fair walk to get to your cabin once you get back to your loop. But again, as long as you plan to use a GC, you can happily stay in any of the cabins in any loop.

I went on a run one day through most of the cabin loops when we were there in May and it appeared to me that the accessible cabins were spread through at least several of the loops. I don't think they are in each one, as I don't remember seeing any in our loop (2100), but there were lots in the 2300, 2500, 2700, and 2800 loops. They had a ramp to the deck and I believe some or all of them had bigger decks. Of course, I'm sure there were other modifications inside, but I didn't go in any so I can't fill you in on that.

Have a great trip!

Leslie

We just got back. The cabins are great!!! We were in the 2500 loop - just a short walk to the quiet pool. We got the 40% off postcard, so it was $153 a night. We also got the bounceback for next year.
