Hey, you didn't happen to leave a Canon camera charger or a kid's knitted hat behind in the room, did you? We found both of these items that housekeeping missed.

Just curious-- did you get 4506?

No, but we did get a room on the 5th floor so all is good.

I hope you had a great trip.

Hi DL friends, love all the info you guys have here on the GC! I'm in the early stages of planning a trip to DL for May of 2014. What is the best way for me to go about renting points for a one bedroom villa? My head is spinning with all of the info, and I'd like to make sure I have ample time to get my ducks in a row so we have a chance to stay here. TIA for any help!

Would someone please give a recommendation for a 1 bedroom villa (room number) where we may view WOC? We are traveling with little ones and I don't think they will make it to the show. I would be lovely to see at least a bit from our room.

This is a recent thread about good results using board sponsor David
This rental was for only 160 points. It can be difficult to rent large numbers of points, my sister-in-law attempted a 400+ point rental without success.

If you don't get one of these, there is also the 6th floor patio

Thanks so much, it looks like we will need about 200. I hope it works out!

Just returned from a wonderful trip in a studio! I have one note to add. Despite "step stool" being on the list of items that can be requested that is displayed in the villa, the CM we spoke to said that they were no longer available. It was hard to lift up my 5 year old every time he needed to wash his hands in the sink. If we were driving down to DL, and had a child of a similar age consider bringing a small folding one.

On the flipside, the robes that were listed as being available for $6 on request, were hanging in our closet. YEAH!

There are (understandably) a lot of questions about which rooms to request for good views. I happen to be in the diametrically opposite camp, in that the view (or lack thereof) that I have from my room is unimportant to me. What does matter, though, is that the room be quiet, especially in the evenings. I tend to go to bed early (maybe 9 pm-ish) so that I can hit the parks early in the morning, and if there's a lot of noise coming in through the window, that can keep me awake.

I'm guessing that most rooms are going to to be relatively quiet, but I'm wondering if there are any rooms that I should avoid because they're going to be on the louder side in the evenings.

Worst case scenario is that I wear earplugs and/or play white noise, but I thought I'd ask.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Which day of the week is better for check in?

I have 5 nights reserved in July that I will be shortening to 3 nights. Does checking in early on a Sunday increase chances if getting a PP view studio? Debating between a Sunday checking versus going midweek Tuesday through Friday in hopes for lower crowds...or Monday through Thursday?

Thanks!
