Are there any woods view rooms on the ground floor? 2 years ago, we were upgraded to a courtyard view facing the falls near the front desk and we loved it so I was hoping they had some woods view down the same hall.

There are only 181 units at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge so Disney has very few of these units to rent out. DVC Members can and do make their reservations at 11 months in advance.

They do offer the Villas but you have make your reservations way in advance.
Thanks. I have been trying for awhile now-- at first they told me the rooms had not been released yet.

I am looking for September 2010. Thought it would be an easier time given the lower crowds.

Wondering if I should book the club-level room so that we have something and keep trying to switch it.

I liked SSR just fine, but wanted to try something different.

No, no,no, those red signs with the word STOP on them are optional if they have a white border.

Thank you for starting up this thread again.

I really appreciate it.

We're heading down on 12/20. And I CANNOT WAIT.

Does anyone know about the Club Level rooms with Bunk Beds? Any good ones to request? I would really love to be upgraded to a Junior Suite. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I know someone was heading down there recently for CL at WL. I'm wondering if they have a resort report for us.

Thanks to all!!

Erinm

Your question is complicated.

First you ask if there are any Wood View Rooms on the ground floor, but then you said you had a room facing the waterfalls near the front desk and you would like a woods view down the same hall.

It sounds like you were located on the 2nd floor located in the southside of the Lodge.(which is the same floor as the front desk.) If this is the area you want it isn't the ground floor, but yes there are Wood View Rooms on the 2nd floor located off this hallway.

If you look at the map from page 1, 1st post.

Wilderness Lodge Room #'s and Locations

The rooms you are asking about would be the even # rooms from 2100-2120 just click on the link above for a view of the area.

I finally got one! A two-bedroom! It popped up and it was the only one per reservationist!!! (I called to make sure the computer wasn't messing with me).

We're booked for September 18-26, 2010 in a 2-bedroom villa. Now to figure out if I have a specific room / general area request. . . .

By the way, thank you so much. This site helped me make our first full family trip fantastic in September 2008. I did a lot of planning, but I planned for a lot of down time, too. This site made it all work out wonderfully!

Very excited. I almost changed to BLT, but I think my boys will love the WL, and it is all about them. Love the proximity to Fort Wilderness, too.

We were club level in August. We had room 7042 with bunk beds. Our 7 DD loved the beds. We had a perfect view of the fireworks at night. By day we could see the monorail and the smokehouse. Never bothered us, very private room near the rear elevator that no one uses. Going back in 2010!

We told our kids last night and they are so excited! My youngest (3) hopped up from the table and ran to his room to "pack." I made a countdown poster to help the time pass. We are all excited about staying at WL in 16 days!

I saw another thread that mentioned Ranger Stan was leaving soon. Does anyone know if he has gone for good? My sister and I met him a few trips ago and we have looked him up each time. I remember him saying that he was leaving last June (I thought). Maybe the date was changed. At any rate, I know he will be missed!

The following post was over on the DVC Forum, it was posted on October 31, 2009 Ranger Stan has retired, he will be missed but never forgotten.

In the upper right hand corner of the picture are the words: My first day at work I was as wide-eyed as the guests. I still am. Further down on the picture are the words: I am Disney. There was a small matted poster of the picture there, also. And under the words I am Disney were the words I am Retired. I am so happy I was able to be here for Stan's last days as a CM. He is what Walt Disney hoped all his CM's would represent.
