We reserved a 2 bedroom through an owner but would now like to add 3 additional nights. The problem is that they are probably long gone. We are trying to find a 1 or 2 bedroom for Dec. 29-Jan. 1. Is there any less expensive way to do this than calling Wydnham and reserving with cash?

TIA for any help!

Hi all,
Looking forward to our first trip to WBC too. Can anyone help with the following -
1. I'm looking for current or fairly recent activities schedules just to get an idea of what may be offered
2. I'm also wondering about creatures (flies, bugs, snakes, crocs etc(!)) at WBC. I'm a Canadian who is not used to the last two for sure. The flies other bugs I can handle

Thanks

Tink I own wyndham points and just checked the website for you. Nothing available with a check-in for either 12/28 or 12/29. But, owners can cancel 15 days before check in dates and that's when you might be able to find the dates you are looking for. Have you thought of contacting the person you rented from so they can reserve the dates if they become available?

Last xmas, I had 2 split reservations for the 10 days we were there. One was check in 12/19, check out 12/26. BUT, what I did was reserve the 2nd reservation for 12/25 so they could overlap and avoid having to checkout at 10 am and then WAIT for my room to become available at 4pm. Prior to our arrival I called Bonnet Creek and had them merge my 2 reservations so I wouldn't have to change rooms.

This is the link to their activity page. There is a .pdf file you can download from this page which should have all the current activities available. I just printed this off myself since we are arriving on Friday

As far as bugs and critters, I sure don't remember much of anything there. There are usually the small lizards...........they are all over Florida. My kids love trying to catch them.

I am a DCV owner and I am getting pretty excited about our upcoming Bonnet Creek stay. Apparently my in-laws own enough points they can request a view? We are going down the week after Thanksgiving, staying in a one bedroom deluxe. Can anyone recommend an area to request? I like an upper room with a view that maybe you could see fireworks, if there is such a view.

Internet Question

Since we are arriving at the end of the week I thought I had better figure out what I need to do ahead soon. Do I need to bring a wireless router? It seems most everyone has mentioned you need one if you want to use the internet wirelessly. We stayed in Bldg. 3 last time and we had wireless. Was this just a fluke?

Thanks!!

Terri

That would've been a fluke, and likely you were piggybacking on someone else's router.

No wireless is provided in the rooms, only the wired connection. You can however take your own wireless router and plug it into the wired connection to give yourself wireless.



Hmmmm... as I think about it, i think the pool bars may have wireless since they do provide it in some common areas like the lobby. Since Building 3 is next to a pool bar, if you were close enough you MAY have been able to get that signal, but it's not extremely likely.

I'm sure you are right about the fact that we piggybacked on someone else's connection. Never thought about that.

I'll be sure to pack our wireless router this time. Thanks!

How fun! We'll be there November 5-12. We're traveling with another couple and it'll be a first Disney trip for both of them. Our little guy will be 14 months and theirs will have just turned 1. We're very excited! If we're there at the same time maybe we'll see each other!

Am getting ready to send in the deposit for our 2 bedroom Deluxe unit at WBC. Our group is comprised of me and DH - early 50s, DD-21, DD-18 and DD's BF-19.

Any thoughts on what request we might want to make regarding Building/View?

TIA!

We are very impatiently waiting for our Wyndham resale to go through so we can book for this Oct!! We are very excited to finally stay here after thinking about it for a couple of years. We have always stayed onsite using either free dining or a pin code...we thought hard about the decision to finally stay off site and to buy into the Wyndham system. Considering the lack of pin codes and Disney's claim to pull back from deep discounts I think we have made the right choice. Not to mention the fact that as our 2 DD's get older having a seperate bathroom and bedroom for them will be worth it's weight in gold!! LOL!! I have been lurking on the old thread for some time...but hope to have a review to post this fall!!
