Hi there!

I have quite a few pictures of various views. We stayed 7th floor and, I think, 5th or 4th both inner courtyard view with beautiful pictures of the lake and the pool and some of the high fireworks and the parade. I also have pictures from the roof as the flag family!

5th floor Courtyard north side... we also had friends staying on the same floor with some bunks and they had a decent view of fireworks and an alligator in the pond on the north side.

Roaring Forks was fine, food was pretty good. Pool was excellent, no need for waterparks.

One thing I wish they had was more resort specific merchandise. Ran out of the t shirt I wanted...
I'm sorry they ran out of the shirt you wanted. We were there for 12 nights and left on the 5th and from the time we arrived to when we checked-out there was a big run on the clearance merchandise which was marked half-off. Most of the clearance merchandise had disappeared by the time we checked-out. I was told that they were getting rid of some of the resort merchandise and the CM didn't know what would replace it. I guess you'll just have to go back soon to see what new merchandise they have.

Do you have photos of the Flag Family ceremony? Those would be great in the new thread! Could you PM some to me before you leave? If not, I can put them in later when you get back home. Thanks!




The new thread is up and running, but it's still under construction. Hope to see everyone there!

Travel time from WL

Hi everyone. We are staying at WL (first time at Disney ) for our honeymoon this December. I am going crazy planning an itinerary. Just wondering how long it will take to get to each park. I know WL is in the MK area so it will not take long by bus or boat and that we have to take a bus to everything else. I know it also depends on crowds, but can anyone give me a rough idea how long to allow to get to MK, Epcot, DHS, AK, and Downtown Disney? I want to get there at opening! Thanks for your help! Kara

If you post your question to the new thread (link below), you'll probably get more answers from those who do rope drop. We never do RD, however, I would suggest taking the first bus of the day to make RD. It starts about one hour prior to park opening.
