I wasn't familiar with this resort and it looks beautiful. Do all of the rooms have interior entrances to the rooms? Also, what is the new hotel being built, or is it a new building for this resort?

Yes, all rooms have their entrance via the internal corridors. The buildings themselves are access controlled via your room key. (Which also means that if you order food delivery (pizza/chinese/etc), you have to meet the delivery driver downstairs and outside the building. the only exception to this is the onsite restaurant.)


the New Hotel is the Wyndham Grand hotel at Bonnett Creek. I would provide the hotels' link, but the site appears to be broken currently. you can find the link via google.

Thanks so much for the information, I looked up the new hotel and it looks very nice. I will have to keep these places in mind for future trips if we stay offsite.

You got it We just got back from a 4 bedroom presidential and it was really amazing! We were in tower 3 facing the lake on the top floor (9th). We had a view of both Wishes and Illuminations which was awesome. Someone said our tower is due for refurbishment in March. It was definately a bit dated. We had a flat screen in the living room, but not the bedrooms. No surround sound or computer thingy on the wall. But really, it was stunning. I got it off ebay for $185 a night so it was a steal!

View from our balcony, this is wide angle so the Epcot ball is actually bigger:


This is closer to the real size:


More views.....




Fireworks view for Illuminations....pretty close to the actual size...


Wide angle shot...




Pool view from our balcony...




And at night...




More to come!

Thank you, Bonnie! Awesome pics & I can't wait to be there in June!

I will NEVER again be able to look at a whirlpool tub (as seen in your pics) without thinking of your story about the jets in an empty tub and LMAO!!!
(For those who may have missed it, check out post #1312...)

Really can't thank you enough for taking the time to post your reviews & pics!

Are there any tidbits of advice you wish you'd known before your trip?

Did you participate in the WBC PIF box?

Any other thoughts?

Thanks!

Gretchen & Family

Not really, everything was pretty great. Maybe some earplugs from the karoke that played 3 of the nights, but mostly it was funny.

No, I wanted to but there was no openings

Just have a great time! I'm very sad to be back. I'm posting about it all in the trip report section. We all had a blast and no one wanted to come home.

Subbing...I think we are going to leave property for more room and try BC this fall. I really hope we like it, because I love staying on property
