Does anybody know what kind of view you might get with rooms 6081 or 6082?

When you do the online check in with a courtyard view... what options does it give you for room request?
When i stayed at cbr there were a few to choose from. Akl had one. Wondering if the options given might stop me from calling and harassing a cm.
Really thinking inner courtyard upper floor open balcony.
My goal is a nice view of bay lake.

Thank you for any help

We stayed in WL for 2 weeks end November through early December last year (standard room) and got upgraded to a Bay Lake view. I'll post the room number when I can remember it but the view was stunning.

A few pictures from room 6149 last September (it was a bunk bed room). Loved the location of the room just didn't love the enclosed balcony so this time we've requested the 5th floor

Panoramic shot

Looking right to Bay Lake

I don't remember the number of the room sorry, but it's the top floor. Stayed February 2013.

Looking straight:

We are here now and aren't in those rooms, but here is the view looking down from that area.


Here are those rooms from where the photo was taken on the 6th floor.


There is a group of trees between the building and the road that leads to the service area. It looks nice, and you might catch some of Wishes over the trees.

Here's the view from 6096. It is also a lobby facing room above the registration desk on the South Side, and has 2 Queens.







And from the other end of the room, looking into the lobby:

Looking for a good room

This indeed is a great thread. We are planning our first visit, and strongly considering WL.
After reading the entire thread (yes, all 12 pages), it sounds like the ideal room (for us anyway) would have the following characteristics:
1) view of fireworks
2) view of EWP
3) open balcony
So, does such a room exist?

Welcome. Your requests could theoretically be met, but it will be with some compromise. Seeing both the fireworks and EWP from the same balcony is a challenge, but your best chance would probably be a higher floor inner courtyard view room in the South Wing, but avoid the 6th floor in the further out (East) section of the wing, because those have enclosed balconies.

If it were me though, I would focus on the fireworks view and get a Woods view room on the North side of the North wing, then walk down to the beach to see the EWP. The same situation applies with the closed balconies being on the east end of the 6th floor, which all of the Woods View rooms are in that wing so I'd request 5th floor.

For lots more WL info and a friendly group of people, check out the WL FAQ thread here. Enjoy, and happy planning.

Courtyard view room, South wing upper courtyard. It was a Queen/Bunkbed room. Close to the elevators as well. Open Balcony. Also Great view down into the lobby from the 4th floor above the stream, but somehow did not take one picture from there.



Looking down at the entrance to the lodge from the courtyard. I could actually see the stream a lot clearer than it shows in this picture.




Looking Left




Looking Right in the morning (obviously during Pool Renovations)




Better view in sunny middle day. Looking a bit down you can see the top of the waterfall and if I remember right I could see the geyser (partially blocked by the far trees).



Okay crappy iphone picture but just to show that I could see the EWP from my balcony...and OMG you can definitely hear the music. LOL


I could hear the fireworks but don't remember seeing them. I think I was at the wrong angle.

We just got back a week ago, and we stayed in a courtyard view room 4159. We could see both Wishes and the EWP, which made it worth the walk from the elevators!



My son going down the slide! I could see my dh and ds5 at the pool while I stayed with our napping 1 year old, which was nice.


View to the left...


The lake and EWP were to the right, but I didn't get a photo. This photo of the fireworks doesn't do justice at all to what a good view we had of them, I really recommend this room!
