[QUOTE=Belle5;44116845]If you arrive in Orlando the day before you can check into WBC, where do you stay for the night? Trying to decide where we need to stay...have to get three rooms.[/QUOTE

I would try Embassy Suites or Homewood Suites, you could probably get away with 2 rooms there or maybe 1 room if it's just for 1 night. Embassy Suites has two double, a pull out couch and free hot breakfast...I think Homewood Suites has the same.

We have always stayed at the Embassy Suites in Lake Bueana Vista (pink one) It is very nice. Seriously, I have stayed there at least 15 times. They do have a nice pool area too, which we love.

The front desk was able to tell me what tower and floor we were on, and I'm sure the room number was assigned, but of course he wasn't going to give us that information yet. They took my cell phone number and called when the room was ready. We just stopped at the front desk when we returned from the parks and picked up our room keys. We were offered full use of the resort's amenities, but we were planning to go to a park. I'm sure you could use the pools, but you just wouldn't be able to get into any of the towers and would have to use the rest rooms to change.
Thank you, jaysmom - that's good to know.

Am I foolish to wait until 60 days out expecting to be able to still get a unit?
My trip is in june for 8 nights. I didn't know about the 7days rental peroid until I booked my air ticket. I have to book for a week plus 1extra day . Just got confirm about my booking, total is around 1600.00. the 1st 7days only cost $1200 which average to $170 per nights, the 8 day is killing me...it is an additional $355.00. btw, i booked a 3bdroom unit.

Who did you book through? I was able to book 9 nights and didn't have to pay anymore for the extra 2 nights than I did for the first 7.

I would love to know more about using the buses to get to the resorts for Rope Drop. I was told that the buses start running at 8 am. If we catch the first bus, will we be able to make RD at MK?

Also, does anyone have experience with using a cab to get to the TTC? We have early morning ADR's and will need to be at MK one day by 8:00am.

Any advice or insight is appreciated!!

I have not done this but I called to resort to ask if it was ok. They said it was fine to ship to them as long as you clearly label with your name (as a guest) and arrival date.

I think the refurbishment has replaced any rooms w/ two queen beds with two double beds. That's for both presidential and deluxe. Leaves more walking room I guess... and it's cheaper/easier for housekeeping to replace bedding.

The gifts that they give is usually $100, but if you are not an owner, that is 2 hours that you have wasted of your precious vacation time. For owners it is 45 minutes, that is all they an keep you according to Florida state law. They also usually have discounted tickets, but we always go for the cash. I am not sure if this time I will good not, since we are owners it is only 45 min. I might do this whenmy DH is playing golf one morning. We'll just have to see!
