Also, there are no "castle views," like the CR, Poly and GF have. There are some Woods View rooms in the North Wing that have a partial castle view, so this must be what you mean.

Online check-in is optional when staying CL. If you like doing it, then go ahead, if you don't do it, the check-in procedure will be the same, you will just have to present a credit card at check-in.

We tip cash to the housekeeper on a daily basis, but we don't give cash to the CMs. We instead give a gift basket that is shared amongst the staff. This is easiest since different CMs may be helping you throughout your stay - some seen and some not seen.

Though I haven't done it, I believe the concierges will be able to find out for you where certain characters will be on a given day.

If you have any more questions, feel free to post them

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I meant Woods View that have partial views of the castle/Wishes, etc. We stayed at WL in 2010 and had a great view of the Fireworks and top of the castle when we stayed on the 6th floor, room # 6024. We would be happy with the 6th floor again if the view is the same, but I am trying for the 7th floor, same side if possible.

With check-in, if we do online or do it at the resort, do CL guests have a special desk to check in like other resorts, or the same front lobby area?

Is there a relatively reasonably priced way to do a gift basket for those flying in? I can not see trying to carry that at 6AM through National here in DC, LOL.

What are the odds that a Concierge CM can help arrange for a character to "magically appear" at a park, if not previously scheduled? This will be our last trip for a couple of years while we work on buying our house, which is why we are "splurging" for CL, dining plan, etc, and I figure; since this is the latest in the year either of us can get out to the parks (due to holiday and vacation blackouts); this is my best shot to get a picture taken with Scrooge McDuck, but I am worried as I read last year they did not bring him out for pictures until 12-20, and even then only at the Contemporary, not in the parks!

All of the following pics were taken on my cell phone, and I never claimed to be a photographer...

View of wishes from the balcony of our room -


View from the balcony looking back to the door -




New carpet in room -


New red leather around boxspring area of bed -


Bed -


Club level welcome chocolate -


Towel animal that greated us -


Shower with multi-levl soap dishes -

New tiles in shower -

Sink -


New bath products -


And incase you ever wanted to know, if you move the small table from under the mirror you can fit a twin sized aero bed in the room for your soon to be 14 year old to sleep on -

Not sure if I missed it, but can I ask you what kind of room you had? Was this CL?

Yes, standard room club level. I did however have friends staying on the 6th floor below us. They could see a bit of the fireworks.

Thanks. We're not doing CL, but I"m hoping that in December all the rooms will be updated. We have a Courtyard View.

Well we all know how you got to Poly last time...and your constant references to it here are almost insulting to us WL lovers. If it's so confusing & WL doesn't serve the same drinks as Poly then maybe you should just go back to the Poly thread. Oh wait, I don't think you were welcome there, either.

Exactly one week until our first visit to WL. TA mentioned nothing about online check in. We aren't staying CL. From the brief research I have done it didn't appear necessary. Any advantage to online check in?

By the way the first page of this thread is far from confusing. This has been one of the most pleasant and informative threads I have posted in. Here is hoping it is treated with the respect it deserves.

The only reason I do online check in is so that I can enter the credit card card info for room charges myself.

Off topic.

Wow, ok back to WL discussion.

Everyone there has gotten past the fact that disney upgraded us for free because they could not meet the deadline for the POR refurb. Why dont you get over it. You know what if this is how you pass your time worrying about other peoples business then go ahead. But you wont get to me, I just let it go. I appologized to them and we were just excited to be trying the place out so much. They got past it, we did, so why don't you.
Please lets all try to keep our patience and not let this turn into a flaming battle. I just began reading this thread about a month ago and have completely caught up. I recognized your name when you came on here, Venomhatch, because I've also been reading the POR and POFQ threads plus Andre's site. I think if you take the time to read the first, and very well organized, page of this thread a majority of your questions will be answered. That's where I learned about the WL refurb. It has been a great joy for me to learn more and more as I read further. I know that I have the luxury of being retired and not all people have the time that I do but for resort information threads it is well worth the time to read the first few pages before jumping into the latest pages. Welcome to the WL thread.

You yeah I was trying to put this to a stop now. We are actually interested in paying for WL. So I am going back to questions. Sorry to you for this. Anyhow, so does anyone have an up to date floor plan for at least the 6th floor? Thanks in advance. I have been reading the first page a few time now since the last post I posted. Again back to WL discussion.
