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.
WOW! That sounds like so much fun. I love surprises like that. We're staying concierge for the first night with nothing else booked so we can just chill at the resort. From there we move to a different room for the next 7 days. It'll be nice to be there with someone who has never been and has no idea what Disney World is really like.

Now if those 65 days will just hurry up and get over!

You have the holidays first, so when you look at it that way, it seems so much sooner!

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

I agree. The morning is the best time to do it.

Whenever talking about transportation i always try to point out that getting place take longer than you think it will sometimes.

Taking the boat to CR and then taking the Monorail is great to do... but it will take longer than the bus. And if you don't hit it right it can take you 45 minutes or more.

Getting close enough that we can almost count with our toes and fingers

Hoping for some lucky pixie dust..

My daughter will be celebrating her golden birthday while we are there (Turns 11 on December 11th )

We have Inner courtyard on our reservations, but hoping when we get there a request for a room location we want pans out, or if we are REAL lucky, get a free upgrade

crossing fingers! Did you look into the CL discount code? IT wasn't that much more per night than courtyard view with the discount. I'm paying $309.75 per night with tax.

Best place for the Pack & Play?

I was wondering where the best place to set up a pack and play would be in our room? Is there enough room between the entertainment unit and the wall where the connecting door is? We used a P&P at Pop one year and there was enough room there so I assumed it would in that spot at the WL, but you know what happens when you assume!

First time at WL - room advice please

Well, I've finally gone ahead and booked 2 nights at the WL

I'm an Epcot resort kind of person but having visited WL before kept thinking I must stay there one time, so I'm staying just for a couple of nights as a 'taster' before I move back to the YC.

I've booked a woods view room, the reason being although I think the courtyard is gorgeous I'd prefer a 'quieter' location, I was also seriously considering club level but the enclosed balconies are a no-no for me.

So, where would a good location for a woods view room be, particularly for a first timer?

I'm intending to spend my 2 nights at WL relaxing and taking in the resort, so any helpful hints and tips would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Request NorthWing upper floors overlooking the otter pond. The farther down the wallway you are away from the lobby the quieter it will be. It is a bit of a walk back to the lobby but it is quite
