I think we all have good timing . It's the week "before" Jersey Week, but it's usually not too bad. We have went for Halloween and stayed the 2 weeks, and I have no complaints about the crowds at all.
I will try my best. I REALLY don't want to. It seems very cozy, and DH has always liked the decor. I feel like my trip is set



The last 2 days I just kept looking, and looking at the WL. It "called me". Or maybe this thread is too AWESOME to resist Minnie&Nana I don't know what view we will have-have to do more research on the different views. I DO know the view from the lounge though
I know KOOK did such a wonderful job on this new thread that I am beyond excited about heading back there for this trip. I have to sit DH down and have him read it over, although he is already happier than a pig in _____

It is good to see him getting excited over the trip, yesterday he was reading about the TiKi Room re-opening and told me he wants to go there. I think in all our trips we only ever did that once, twice tops.

That's terrific Sheila. I know this trip will be bittersweet for both of you, so I am SO glad you are both getting excited

My DH has NEVER been so happy to go to Disney! He's even excited about the GF! I am really hoping that DH is changing over to a Disney lover, and I think WL will seal the deal

I haven't done the Tiki room since I was 12 I think, but I can sing the song verbatim (thanks to a Disneyland record I wore out as a kid)

do they still offer the free photopass photography session at the Wilderness Lodge. I believe I read someplace that it was discontinued.

Hi Everyone! Longtime lurker; this is a great thread! I am very excited since we will be at the WL in 6 days, my third time there! It just gets better and better..... My DD and I had the best stay last October, and hope this one is the same. Last April, we went to Harry Potter and Universal, no Disney, and my DH (not a huge Disney fan), said to me, "It's not Disney". I think the kids and I are winning him over!

Love this thread!! Heading to WL in 3 days for my DD's suprise Sweet Sixteen trip. We're going CL this time and doing the Segway tour since she's finally able to. She knows nothing yet!! Can't wait to tell her Wednesday night that we're going Thursday morning. She'll find out about CL and the Segway tour when we get there.

As always - love your smilies!

I do hope you get a good deal for March. Since spring break is in April, I would think there would be a good deal coming before then.

You are so sweet, thank you. It makes me feel great to read that people are excited about their trips. Half the fun is the anticipation and planning.

Yes, the Tiki Room was supposed to have opened back up today. It's one of those attractions that never has much of a wait and is cool and dark, like POTC

I believe you can only schedule it in advance now:

From: http://www.wildernesslodgesite.com/c...opass-sessions

Did you know you can get a professional portrait session at Wilderness Lodge?

Here's how: Sign up for a one-on-one professional session with a PhotoPass photographer. There's no sitting fee required.

You can choose from print packages, or get all of your session images on a Professional Portrait CD (separate from Disney's PhotoPass PhotoCD).

Reservations are required and can be booked up to 30 days in advance. Call 407-934-4004 to book.

Even without a reservation, you can sometimes catch PhotoPass photographers in the lobby of Wilderness Lodge -- they'll snap a few photos of you and your family and scan your regular PhotoPass card.

Thank you and so glad you came out of lurkdom! I think DH will be happy to be returning to the WL so maybe you'll be booking a Bounceback. You better get to packing now!

Thank you, LBAK!

Your DD is going to be so happily surprised. How sweet of you. You will love club level. Randy, the manager (he always wears a suit) is so personable and loves chatting with all the guests. The CL CMs, especially Mike and Loyda, are terrific and also love chatting with the guests. Tell them the family who was just upgraded to the Presidential Suite says "hello" and we miss them all. Oh, and get to packin'!

Well, THERE you are. I was going to PM you today to let you know about the new thread. Good to have you aboard and I hope you'll find the time to answer some questions every now and then. BTW, did you know about our colossal upgrade?

Thank you much for your kind words, Missoutandabout. If you need to change resorts, you know where to go for that sort of mischief. I think I should put that link in my signature, too

We are staying at the WL for the first time next month. It really seems to be one of the best values among WDW resorts. Thanks for this fantastic thread, it definitely has us looking even more forward to our upcoming stay.

2) While at the WL a couple of weeks ago (not sure what date) we had come back from MK on the boat during the fireworks (very cool, the captain even stopped the boat to let us watch). My DS and I were walking by the pool and we noticed people coming down the stairs from the roof where the flags are raised each morning. I asked cocierge about it the next day and she told me that they use that someties for very important occasions - a proposal, vets returning from Afghanistan/Iraq, etc. I thought that was very cool. Must be a great view of the fireworks, but I would be scared.

Now to figure out how to edit my ticker...
We went up there on the 18th of July to watch the fireworks! The view was AWESOME ! Here are some pics of the fireworks...sorry they are not great.

You really can see everything from up there!

WDWKOOK~I will be more then happy to take pictures of the JR. Suite for you...you can hold off until Aug 2012 though right? That's when we are going back....ignore my ticker it's to throw off my girls
