You guys really lucked out with your standard views. I'm still wondering what "on the end" refers to though. We are paying for a courtyard. 999ghsts where are you??

Corndog, Did you have an open balcony or an enclosed one on the 6th floor? Thanks!

999 ghsts...

...wow, all these room locations sound GREAT!! I have a question, too. My main concern is that we get 4 adjoining rooms (or, as close as possible....I would like at least 2 rooms adjoining, because my 2 DS's 15 and 13) will be in room by themselves). We will be staying at CBR for the first part of our vacation (7/26-7/31) Should I call to confirm our location at the WL while we are at CBR??? I don't want to "mess up" what may be in the computer already....thanks again,
kimmar

PS - great pics, TigH!!!! thank you for posting.....:D

If you are to fax 4 days out how should I fax because we will be resort hopping? We will be at POFQ form June 18-22 then on Sunday we will be switching to WL. I will be ok to fax PO-FQ but how can I do WL because I will already be there??? Should I go ahead and put a fax in before I leave that would be 6 or 5 days out, or should I call from down there?? What would be the best way to do this??? Or would there be a fax somewhere down there I could use??? 999ghts.... any advise???? Is that lower inner courtyard by the pool???? Thanks for all your great help??? Corvair

999ghsts....

...thankyou:D for clearing that up for me. We had "connecting" rooms when we stayed at CSR (w/the door between the rooms). We left the door open at all times so that our sons would feel secure, yet they still had a bit of privacy.....since we won't be at WL until July, do you suggest I call NOW to change it?

Thanks 999ghsts! But is "on the end" or "view of the lake" still considered "courtyard". After all, that is what I paid for so I'll still get a room in that category before anything else right?? I'm just wondering if I made a mistake in upgrading the room. I hope not, oh well, live and learn I guess. Any input??? I'm sure it isn't a big deal, just getting too wrapped up in all the planning. (I need a vacation!!!) Thanks for everything. Rojoe

Has anyone ever stayed in the bunk bed rooms at WL? We requested that with a woods view. I didn't know what kind of view to request. Just curious on the size and if requested, should I be hopeful we will get them?

Unhappy sorry...

...one more question. Do the std rooms with bunk beds have connecting rooms?? ( I could use either a queen & bunks connecting to 2 queens or a queen w/bunks connecting to another queen w/bunks....)

Also: what kind of water activities (not including the pool) are available at WL?

We had connecting rooms over the reservations desk (I think they were standard since the view was of the rooftops) and they were two queens connecting to a queen and bunks.

My .02

I just wanted to add a tidbit.

Mrs. DC Mouse and I stayed there in November of 2000. (Geez, has it been that long?)

We asked for a woods view with a King Bed and scored the jackpot- Room 7064!

As an earlier poster said, not all rooms have a MK view. 7064 not only has a dead on view, the view is situated perfectly between two trees so that the castle is completely unobstructed.

The cool thing was seeing them test new firework shows late at night.

The king bed rooms are handicapped rooms so there's no tub, but we liked the roll-in shower just fine.

Remember, 7064, Wilderness Lodge

Work a couple of days, spend a couple of days picking up your daughter from her first year at college and boy, has this thread grown.

Hope third time is the charm for this question. Does anyone know if there is a room where the sun shines in the room at some point during the day??

Thanks

kimmar067--I believe it was the 5th floor. I can't remember the room number but we moved from room 5000 (Delux/Jr. Suite) and it was on the same floor. The view really wasn't that bad and the close location to the elevators was nice.
