I would say they make fairly loud noises and yes you can hear the booms, especially towards the end.

Personally I always thought those who mentioned the Contemporary parking lot being in the way were looking for another reason to bash the Contemporary based on it's theme, so they use that as another excuse.
Yeah, I agree. Anyone who thinks that doesn't really belong in Disney. Git out!

Please no flames... but I was wondering

Is there anyway to get into the Top of the World Lounge if we are not DVC members?

No flames from me, however based on the various threads I read it looks like they always have a Cast Member who checks for the DVC membership cards before going up in the elevator that goes there.

I think also check your Key To The World card that should also say DVC Member on it, along with making sure the names on both cards are the same.

You need to call reservations and ask to make room requests. General rule is to make no more than 3, and in order of importance. Your requests will be marked on your reservation and you'll get an email with an updated reservation reflecting those changes. The CM assigning your room will hopefully see them and do their best to grant your requests, but remember that these are requests; nothing more.

You can also kindly tell the CM at check in that you had made some room requests and ask if they could help.

The one problem is that room assignments are now done by a computer, so I am not sure how it takes requests into account.

The only guests who still get their rooms assigned by a Cast Member are those staying Club Level, since it's done by the Club Level Cast Members themselves.

True, but it never hurts to ask again at check in and see if your requests can be fulfilled.

When I last stayed at WL and we extended our stay, while I was standing there, a CL CM called the WL room assignor in order to secure the room we were in for our extended stay, so I'm not sure that every CL does all of their own room assignments.

Also, even though the software was upgraded last year and room assignments can be done via computer, each resort still has room assignors who do oversee the computer's selection and do assign rooms when certain requests are not able to be easily fulfilled by the computer. A RA/CM at the CR last year told me this when I was checking in.

Well I know at the Boardwalk Inn the Club Level Cast Member who does room assignments for those guests staying Club Level, because I have talked to her a lot during my previous stays. However I am not sure what they do when guests want to extend their stay like you did, so maybe they do exactly the same thing like at the Wilderness Lodge.

We had big red head phones on hand just in case the fireworks were to loud.
