The Obsession Begins

In January, my family went to AKL, staying CL. I practically can't believe it but my husband agreed to a pre-Xmas trip Dec 18-23rd!!! We will be staying at WL CL- got the 40% off deal- incredible!!! I am so excited to see all the decorations around the entire Kingdom.

We are keeping this a secret from the kids until we start driving down on the 18th, so I have to be discrete about my disboards obsession. I will probably have some late nights!

I read some of the recent posts about CL at WL. TVEPFOX wrote that room 7042 had a great view of the fireworks. Any other suggestions for CL rooms? My kids loved the bunk beds at AKL. Should we ask for bunk beds with MK view? What other options would be fun on CL? I know we can't ask for a specific room but what should our request be?

Since we already stayed CL at AKL, should we expect any extra pixie dust? We were totally bowled over by the special treatment at AKL.

Tvepfox r.i.p.

I've changed my screen name. Since I lost my job I'm tired of being my old user name. Time for something new...

TVEPFOX is now LuvsBlueDiamonds

Yeah, go figure, what a great screen name for me. For those of you who are getting to know me I LOVE blue diamonds. Ask DH, I collect them!!

I have to start all over with posts and threads, but I don't care. Hopefully this name will bring me good luck and maybe a few new gems!

FINALLY found the return of this thread! Thank you for starting it again. It is a wonderful resource for all of us who LOVE WL and VWL!!

We already have our next 2 trips to VWL booked. We'll be there Jan. 7 - 14 and Oct. 7 - 12, 2010! Counting the days for both!

I've got a 'courtesy hold' on a 1 bdr villa at WL for 4/24 - 4/29. I can't get too excited until I put my deposit down

I'm still hesitating because we are trying to also make my Grandma's 90th birthday celebration in Vegas for 5/1. I wanted Disney to be a longer trip so I'm just going to hash it out with DH to see what he thinks. If not, I think I'll just book the 5 nights. Oh, I did price out resorts in Mexico for the same date range (because someone in my family thinks I'll actually go there instead of Disney) and while the price is comparable, I just can't imagine myself having fun sitting around a beach. Weird, huh??? I hated my honeymoon in Tahiti - boring!!! But Disney???? Bring it on!!!! (Nope, I'm not one of those people who don't travel - I've actually been to over 30 countries in my life. Can I help it that Disney GETS IT RIGHT????)

Ttc

Does a bus go from WL to TTC on a regular basis? I see where it said "reverts back to old route" If we want to take the monorail to EPCOT are we better off taking the boat to Contempary then switch at TTC?

During park hours there is no bus to the TTC, so yes you are correct on the boat to CR then Monorail.

We enjoy taking the boat and monorail route to EPOCT for a change of pace from the bus. But it can take a long time to get to EPOCT doing this especially in the afternoon when the boat goes to FW first before CR.

I love doing the boat to monorail in the morning. Coming into EPCOT on the monorail is just so much more exciting. I usually take the bus back though because it is such a quick trip. :-)

Can't wait, 33 more days until we return to the WL. Our first visit to WDW was in Aug. 2008 and we stayed at the WL and was upgraded to concierge, we loved it. We went back to WDW in Jan. 09 and stayed at the YC club level; we liked it, but it was not the same as the WL.

We are going to surprise my DD12 with a Christmas in WDW and staying at the WL. Not only does she not know we are going to WDW, but she don't know that grandma & grandpa are going to be there. Since they have moved to Arizona she hasn't seen them in two years( I miss them to). We have all our ADR's set and that first night we are eating at Narcoossee's. I can't wait to see my daughters face when grandma & grandpa walk in fashionable late once I phone them we're seated.


As magical as WDW is, I'm sure that will be the most magical moment of our 10 days.
