We are going in Feb - have never been so I feel like I have soooo much to learn. I have no idea what kind of room to request. It is all so confusing to me!

I have 5 people in our room - I have requested bunk beds. I think. I hope. Need to confirm that!

Any rooms better than others? I would like to see the castle. And fireworks. Is that possible?

You might want to double check what type of room you booked. AFAIK, the only rooms that will sleep more than 4 are the Deluxe, but none of them have bunkbeds. I just don't want you to get there and be disapointed, or have problems b/c you have too many people.

Unless one of your five is an Infant, then you will be fine. Bur either way, bunkbeds is a seperate, bookable category, so check what you have now, to make sure you are getting what you want.

You will love the Lodge!

ETA...forgot about the view part.....to see the fireworks, you would want woodsview or standard.....(but Standard does not have bunks) You would want to request North side, upper floor.

Hi, all! My DD's friend just booked for next yr, but only a courtyard bunkbed room was available - just 2 of them though. Anyone know where these might be located? She booked through a TA and did ask him to keep checking.

Thanks!

They are on all floors (except CL) and are located inside the "horseshoe" (using that term VERY loosely). They overlook the pool, Silver Springs etc. IF they get one looking straight out, they will be able to see the EWP on Bay lake. There are also "courtyard view" rooms on the south side, overlooking the Villas & Villas pool. IMHO, these are NOT worth the extra $$$ for courtyard, so tell her to make sure she requests INNER courtyard. (there have been reports that those are now considered woodsview, but better safe than sorry) There is a link to a great map in one of the first few posts that shows where all the locations are, so they will have a better idea of what they want to request.

Just booked and paid for a last-minute vacation for the week before Thanksgiving! I am so excited! I've always wanted to stay there and I can't wait to see the WL Christmas tree. We've never stayed Deluxe before, but the military 40% discount made it possible!

Hi

I have added some
new information on page 1 and updated existing informatiom.

What I need for anyone visiting the Lodge soon is to please save your Recreation Activities list, you'll receive this at check-in. This will assist me with updating new activities at the Lodge. I also need a new price list from Teton Boat & Bike Rental for any new rental prices of the equipment.

Thanks
Beckie

Yeah! Thank you for starting the new thread! I really appreciate it!
We are heading to WL with 14 other family members to Celebrate our 25th anniversary Jan 2010! I am getting so excited I cannot stand it! My husband and I have always wanted to stay at WL and I cannot wait to hear "Welcome Home!"

I posted a question on the last thread right before it was closed so I was unable to get any responses. I thought I would try again

We have reserved wilderness view rooms and I would love to get ones near one of the smaller fireplaces. I thought this would come in handy while little ones are in the room watching TV we could be outside the door near the fireplace enjoying adult company. What would I request in order to get a chance near one of these fireplace lounges? Are any of these wilderness views?
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Can't wait to go back in Feb. Was able to use the 40% on a CL room so it makes the deal sweeter!
