Just at AKV and SSR and it worked well.

It certainly took DVC long enough to implement it. I'm a long time Marriott TS owner and user and they've had free WiFi for many years.

The following is now posted on the Members' Website:

Disney Vacation Club® Resorts add Wi-Fi

Guest rooms at select Walt Disney World® Resort hotels, including all Disney Vacation Club Villas, now offer wireless Internet access for Members and Guests at no additional cost.

Wireless access previously debuted at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort and Disney's Vero Beach Resort. That service continues to be available to Members at no additional cost.

We just got back from OKW and it worked great. At times, we had 2 laptops and and IPod going and it may slowdown a bit, but still worked.

Yes, according to the DVC member website, all DVC resorts now have free WiFi in the rooms.

I am at OKW right now and using it. It works great. I've got my laptop, iPad and two iPhones connected with no problems at all.

Used it at the BWV from Oct. 15-29, 2 different rooms, and it worked great every time I used it. I had my router with me, but never tried to check to see if that still works. I did see it posted on the DVC website now too.

Has anyone confirmed if this is still a pilot or if it's permanent? I get the notice they were testing free wifi through Thanksgiving or just before but not that it was there to stay. At least not for free.

Also, the wireless is subject to more stringent filters than wired. My wife was trying to surf the gossip rag sites on wireless and one of them was blocked by the Disney filter. Not blocked if wired.

I'd still like to now if the wired connections are staying in place. I read something above that leads me to believe they may not be. That's bad. I have no desire to operate my work equipment at Disney on a public Wi-Fi. I'd much prefer to run my own secure Wi-Fi network on my own access point/FW but bridging wireless to wireless is much more of a challenge that wired to wireless. I can do it. I just don't want to have to drag what I'd need down there to do it with.

Wonder how we could get a firm answer to this question?

Have you tried emailing Member Satisfaction? If you do, you'll probably need to ask very specific questions.

We had it in our treehouse this past weekend. What is not available is wifi in the checkin building at SSR.

I was there the first week at BWV and ours seemed to be ok but ended up using DH's phone tether as it seemed to work better. I found at night it seemed to be a bit slower but it could have been cause it was the first week.

I tried it at THV and didn't have much success so stuck with hardwire internet connection when DH used his bandwidth .

I think it probably depends on how close you are to hot spot just like any hotel with wifi.

We were in 7023 last week. When we could see it, there was barely one bar. Most of the week we couldn't see it. We just used the wired connection and the router we keep in our Owner's Locker.
