Cool. It's been years since I've won an award. Yellow is a good color. Free Dining or a good percent off code would tip the balance towards WL. Or a refurb before our trip.

Any word on a refurb happening before June 2012?

Excited to see what this thread will have to offer... not been to WL since 2008 (currently the best WDW trip I ever took) and about 97% sure this is where I'll be vacationing next October!

We were just there and the room we were in was quite nice. Not sure a refurb is needed...

Anything in particular?

I think we got the room that should have been put out of circulation. Please do not let this bad experience we had color anyone else's expectations, I am sure it was a fluke.

The wall border was falling down, found a lovely toenail that did not belong to use, lots of dust [and I mean a lot not just a few days worth] under the curtains, some strange stuff growing on the access panel in the bathroom, new caulk and grout needed in the bathroom and the mold/mildew/algae growing on the balcony. Room 4079 if anyone is interested. Hopefully all those things were fixed after we left.

Because we paid a lot for the courtyard view with bunk beds, the less than adequate shape of the room left a real bad taste in my husband's mouth and wallet.

It was my own fault for not checking the room before unpacking and my own fault for not taking time out of our commando plans to switch rooms.

This bad experience is in the minority of over all experiences of other guests. Our first two times were a dream.

The news of a refurb would mean there was less time for the dirt and dust to accumulate before out stay. That would go a long way to helping my husband give it another chance. *I* still want to stay here even after that not so great stay. That is how much I love the whole feel and concept of WL.

I thought the legend was that you rubbed Humphrey the bears nose, not his stomach.




The Legend of Humphrey Bear and his MAGICAL NOSE.

Humphrey is located in the Lobby and is the Mascot (an animal, person, or thing adopted by a group as its representative symbol and supposed to bring good luck) of The Wilderness Lodge and the Wilderness Lodge Vet's Legend is that if you rub Humphreys Nose at the start of or during your visit to WDW you will be favored with PIXIE DUST and you will have a MAGICAL STAY.

That's so funny... I was just reading with my daughter and she said you need to let someone know the legend, they have it wrong.... and mom, why is his stomach red???

Yes, yellow goes well with your hair...

I indeed have rehab news straight from the club level manager. The rehab was due to begin in December, but it now looks like it will begin in February 2012. It will NOT be a soft rehab. It will be a top to bottom complete room rehab. Everything will be replaced, including the bathroom fixtures. There is already a model room that the club level manager has seen and he says it is fantastic and everything will be replaced. He predicted that it might take up to two years and will be done floor by floor by blocking off one floor at a time. No word yet on whether they will start at the top or the bottom.

Of course that's the legend and thank you for noticing my error! I must have been hungry when I typed stomach instead of nose. I really appreciate you catching that
