Thanks for the info...

That's the one I went to last time because the other two were crowded. So I guess we'll just stick with that one. :-)

So due to some other family obligations, we canceled our WL ressie for next April BUT my extended family has agreed to go with us in the summer (worse weather, but more people!!!) and we have WL as one of the resorts we are choosing from. We are making a decision during Thanksgiving. OH, I want to stay at WL!!!! We'll see....

Question:

I'm sure WL has bellhops waiting outside to help you with your luggage. But we prefer to do it ourselves; since we drive, we tend to have lots of smaller bags and suitcases. Will we be 'allowed' to use a luggage cart to bring stuff to our room? On our visit to Shades of Green, we were not. The bellhops were the only ones allowed to use the luggage carts and at ~$1/bag, I think we wound up tipping him like $15. We're do-it-yourself kind of people and want our stuff NOW.

We should be at the check-in desk in less than 48 hours!

At Pop, we were able to leave our drivers license with luggage services as a sort of collatoral and use the cart to transport our own stuff.

Sorry Wrong quote. Meant to click Claire&TheBoys Post

We were told one trip that they are not supposed to let you use them without their CM. Something about possibly running into other guests, people riding their kids on it when returning, etc. Basically possible misuse and liability to resort. We did get one one time (like 5:00am), but we haven't asked anymore. Usually DW and I just take them up ourselves and stack other bags on the ones that roll. We are going to have multiple bags this trip staying in a 2 bedroom, so we are just going to let them take them up for us.

We are a lot like you. We like to do things ourselves. But, this is the WL, enjoy yourself, ask for help and don't get all caught up in spending an extra few dollars. Have a great time. You will be glad you did.

If they can get all of your bags on one cart, then just tip them $10.00. Its still a very good tip considering the one cart. One cart for 4 to 5 bags, or one cart for 15. Just smile and say thank you.

I still self-park. No way am I going to pay someone to park my car.

Claire&TheBoys

DizneyNutz is correct, the reason that Amberg and 3"Mouse"keteers where able to use the carts over at Pop and Movies is that the value resorts have Luggage Assistance for their guests. Not to be confused with "Bell Services" the policy at Wilderness Lodge is that the luggage carts may only be used by the bellmen.

If you prefer to carry your own luggage...you could park in self parking before checking-in, then after you receive your room assignment your husband could pull your car up to the front of the lodge just past where the bellmen are located. You could unload everything and then wait until he reparks the car then both of you plus the little ones could all carry your luggage to your room.

I do use the bellmen but have also carried my own bags many times, when traveling with childern we always seem to have many little items like you. I don't tip for each and every little bag I limit the tip to the actual luggage we have, then a little extra for all the smaller items but not a dollar per item, we do it more like JPN posted.

Have a Magical Trip
Beckie
