Jean,

Yes you overlooked it, the information link is located in the 1st post, half-way down under the
THE VILLAS at WILDERNESS LODGE

I just tried the link and it has been closed let me see if I can find another.

So I finally got a pin code but they won't let me use it for the Deluxe room!!! I am not set on the concierge portion of the room but DH and I really want a separate room from the kiddos. They would let me use it on a 1 bedroom villa but I confess that I've been thinking of that Deluxe room and was hoping for that. Should I hold out and see if 4/3 is offered for April? Or is the 1 bedroom villa a good room? Has anyone stayed in both or even one of them and let me know what they think?
Thank you!!!

I have stayed in both, before the Villas where built we stayed in the Deluxe Rooms and enjoyed our stay. (Concierge access wasn't included when we stayed in the Deluxe Rooms)

Even with concierge access I would choose the 1 Bedroom Villa over the Deluxe Room.

The Junior Suites are approximately 500 square feet and offer 2 rooms, a living/kitchen room and a Large Bedroom with 2 beds. The Living Room Couch also opens into a bed. In addition to the couch, the Living Room has a TV, table, 2 chairs.(The kitchen area is a small wet bar and mini refrigerator.)


The One-Bedroom Villas are 727 square feet and have one bedroom with a king-sized bed and its own whirlpool tub and TV, a living room (which has a queen-sized sleeper sofa, and TV), one full bathroom, plus a sink/vanity area in the room with the Jacuzzi , a fully equipped kitchen (which includes a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave), dining area (which includes table and four chairs), stacked washer and dryer, hair dryer, a nice walk-in closet as well as a smaller closet, and a private balcony or patio which includes two chairs and a small table.

From Post #2, page 1.

WOODS VIEW: These rooms are located above the front desk on floors 5 & 6. North side woods view rooms are on floors 1-6 and face the "otter pond"(a handful face MK). Floors 4, 5 & 6 above Whispering Canyon are Woods View Lobby rooms, plus more Wood View rooms on floors 2-6 located on the south side of the lodge overlooking the Villas and trees.

Wood View rooms located off the Lobby: (Southside)
The woods view rooms located above the front desk off the Lobby (South side of the Lodge) on floors 5 and 6 really have views of roof peaks and a few trees in the distance. The pro and cons of these rooms are the same as the few standard view rooms off the Lobby but you will be paying more money for the same view. Room #’s 5091-5099 & 6091-6099.


Wood View rooms overlooking the Villas: (Southside)
There are additional Wood View rooms located on the South side of the lodge before the mid-way elevators They face the side of the Villas and a few trees, on floors 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. These rooms are very quiet and a good area for light sleepers. Rooms would be even # from 2100-2120, 3100-3120, 4100-4120, 5100-5120 & 6120-6120.

Wood View rooms located off the Lobby: (Northside)
The woods view rooms located off the Lobby above the Whispering Canyon Café. (North side of the Lodge) Floors 4, 5 and 6 have landscaping outside below the balconies, you may also see sections on the employee parking lot. These rooms face toward the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom giving you the possibility of seeing the fireworks from your balcony. Rooms would be # 4081-4090, 5081-5090 and 6081-6090.

Wood View rooms overlooking the Otter Pond: (Northside)
The last group of rooms that are Woods View rooms are located on the North side of the Lodge beyond the mid-way elevators. They are on floors 1-6 they face toward the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom giving you the possibility of seeing the fireworks from your balcony on the higher floors. They also overlook the Otter Pond where the local wildlife visits through out the day. (Otters, ducks, rabbits armadillos and deer) Rooms would be even # from 1004-1034, 2004-2034, 3004-3034, 4004-4034, 5004-5034 and 6004-6034. The rooms located on the 6th floor # 6004-6034 have the enclosed dormer balconies so guest have to stand to enjoy the views.


If you want quiet you should request...Wood View rooms overlooking the Villas: (Southside)

Almost as quiet and my request would be...Wood View rooms overlooking the Otter Pond (Northside) you might hear/see the fireworks and an occasional ferry horn.

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.

The smaller fireplaces are located on the forth floor off the Lobby over the main entrance so to be near this area I would request Wood View rooms located off the Lobby 4th Floor Northside of the Lodge.
Theses rooms located off the Lobby above the Whispering Canyon Café. (North side of the Lodge) 4th floor have landscaping outside below the balconies, you may also see sections on the employee parking lot. These rooms face toward the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom giving you the possibility of seeing the fireworks from your balcony. Rooms would be # 4081-4090

I have a copy of it saved on my computer. It is a PDF file though, so I don't know how to post it here. If you want to PM me with your e-mail address I will attach it and return send it.

My DH & I are BCV junkies, but decided to switch our January trip over to VWL to mix things up a bit. I am really looking forward to staying here, looks like an amazing resort! Only 71 days to go!!!

We are staying in a studio since its just the 2 of us this trip and prefer a quiet room that *might* give us the chance at being able to see fireworks. Would asking for a Woods View towards Lake on a higher floor be our best bet? Or is that asking for too much? I care more about the quiet (i.e., not having our balcony over a pool) then the chance of being able to see fireworks.

Suggestions?

We are also interested in the carriage rides at FW. Has anyone done those? Do they supply blankets in case it is chilly (it will be January after all, you never know)? Can you bring a bottle of wine?

Wow. Thanks so much for putting all this together!

I've recently stayed at SSR, but with three boys (6,4, and 2) it seems like this is the place to go!

I am thinking of a villa again-- we loved eating/cooking in room. When will those villas be available to book? Been trying and trying. . .
