BUT.... if you are interesting in the slide there, it does not empty into the pool so it probably wouldn't be salt water even if the pool was.
Yes it's hot tubs for me, too. (and not this kind: ) But my daughter is 12 and that would suit her.

Ken got back with me and extended our stay a day, so we'll be there the whole trip. No moving to Universal for the last night. The family didn't really want to go so much, it was just me. And we might still go for a single day if I can scrap together a little extra dough. Otherwise we'll stick to Disney and be happy. Plus maybe we'll get to actually do some of the BC activities!

I've never seen the prices on their website, where are they located? I simply filled out the form and got a quote on the size of the villa and the length of stay. I added 2 more weeknights to our reservation (which included 2 weekends) and took the difference in the two rates, figured out the weekday cost and the weekend cost...which is why I stated "if my calculations are correct" and I also said "irregardless...$100 is a great rate" Would really like to know where the prices are posted on the website though...I still don't see them. Thanks!

If I don't hear anything back I will just call the resort and ask...

Thanks!!
Would you mind posting that info if you get it?

We haven't had the pleasure of staying at WBC yet, but are in the market for a new mattress. If we like it as much as everyone else seems to the info will be quite handy.

Thanks!

I would LOVE to know what Brand the sofa's with the hideabed are! I slept on the one in our room the last night so I could get up early and finish packing without disturbing my kids, and could not believe how thick and comfy it was. It was the 1st time I have ever slept on one that was even close to being comfortable!

Ahhhh yes I do remember seeing that page when I was comparing prices. I thought I read that she was looking at Vacation Strategy which doesn't post their prices. I'm not confused anymore (at least for the time being ) Thanks for the link!!

As a side note, I am using Vacation Strategy for the first time and have absolutely 1000% amazing customer service and speed in every communication with them.

I did a lot of research on the Dis about other vaction rental companies, and compared prices with them all. VS has stellar reviews on the Dis as do many others, but the price difference was significantly less going through VS then with the other companies I had them give me a quote (looked on ebay too). On top of that...VS has a "low price guarantee" so if you find a lower price they will match or beat it. I didn't need to use that guarantee because they were priced far below everyone else I checked with. As an example, the exact same room and timeframe with VU is $1320 with VS it is $1041 that is more than 20% less for the exact same room. Just FYI

The mattresses are Simmons Beautyrest. The tag said "Wyndam Hospitality' as well, so they may be made particularly for them. It also said Savana Plush, I believe. I meant to take a pic with my phone, but forgot.

Absolutely the most comfy mattress I've ever slept in. After getting home, my back started acting up again...time for new mattresses here as well. Hoping I can find the Simmons here!

Savannah Plush is by Dormia, but I did read that Wyndham is going with Simmons Beautyrest beds, so now I'm confused. We LOVED the bed we had in Building 2 last month. However, we have a Simmons Beautyrest now at home, and it's almost the most uncomfortable bed we've ever had, with the Simmons Beautyrest we owned previously being even less comfortable. I know there are different models, but I don't want to take a chance on another Simmons product. Just wish I had taken a look at the mattress label while I was there.

That's so weird, because for us we were quoted almost $400 more with VS than with VU.

Let me be clear though. VS's more expensive quote was outside 60 days, and I knew up front what VU's would be at 60 days and just waited and got my room for $400 less. Wait. Was that clear? I could try again if it was 'clear as mud'.

I believe that inside 60 days VU will be less. However. I did NOT get a quote from VS inside the 60 day mark since they were so much more expensive outside of it.

whew.

I guess really everyone should just shop around.

Hmmm...that is confusing. We were also in Building 2 (last week). I'm almost sure it said Savanah Plush as well as Simmons Beautyrest on the side tag. Weird. I guess we could call BC and ask?

I just got a quote back from VS. They were $77 more than VU.

When you book further out the rates are higher with both companies. The quotes I compared were outside the 60 day window for both companies, so I'm not sure if we're all comparing apples to apples..but for my trip it was quite a bit less with VS. Also they have a price match guarantee so if you wanted to guarantee the lowest price VS is where I would book and did..but obviously everyone needs to go with whomever they feel most comfortable with

Ok, I'm going to call and ask tomorrow, and find out exactly what the brand is...I suppose it is possible that they have more than one brand...We've stayed in two buildings in the last two years and I feel like they were the same...(Bldg 2 and 5)...I'll let everyone know what I find out.
