Regardless of the view though, I can't wait for my first stay at VWL!!
I have never stayed at VWL and I've not heard about the best STD VWL rooms to book. Hopefully, someone else can help you with that.

Here is a link to a DVC map with the VWL room numbers and many VWL photos:

And, another VWL/WL map:

The manager estimated that it would take about two years and that one floor at a time (there are 7) would be blocked off. IMHO, I still say it would be better to block off one wing at a time rather than an entire floor, especially for Club Level, but what do I know...

Two years. Hopefully it won't be to intrusive. The WL is the only place hubby and I stay.

I've stayed at resorts during refurb and never had an issue. If you do I would definitely bring it up to the front desk.

I always think of it as the less people at the resort the better! It's like having the place to yourself.

That works. Actually I remember some years back 4 or 5 maybe there was scaffoldling (?) on the outside. And that wasn't to bad. That didn't bother us at all.

Isn't GF also being refurbed next year too? Interesting they'd have two Deluxe Resorts being refurbed at the same time.

Not too worried for our trip though... can't complain when in Disney right?

Don't you just love the feeling you get when you walk into the WL???? For that reason, I can't stay anywhere else! 24 more days for us

Hoping someone can answer this!!

I just want to clarify whether there are lifevests available for children in the pool...I know some resorts provide them free of charge...do they have those at WL? If there aren't, are you allowed to bring your own?

Oh my goodness!! That feeling is incredible. I keep trying to understand it. I guess somethings aren't meant to be understood......They are just for feeling.

Coffee maker questions answered!

First free WiFi and now pods!

Yesterday, on another thread, I asked if someone could tell me if the new Pod coffee makers are now in the WL rooms because many on the WL thread were asking. elaw was so kind and helpful and actually posted a photo for us that they took last night!




It seems to be similar to this model's description:

Cuisinart "Double" coffee pod brewer. Brews two cups at a time! Compatible with most standard coffee pods including our Cuisinart Private Collection Pods. Compact design, easy pour lid, auto shut off. UL listed for home or commercial use, 1 year manufacturer warranty. Great for Hotel or Bed & Breakfast in room coffee.
