Any idea if the temporary bakery tent is offering breakfast sandwiches? I tried to zoom in on the pic, but I can only go so far...

I passed by this evening and noticed a number of sandwiches. Will try to check back tomorrow to let you know.

We're scheduled to be there in 2 weeks. Thanks.
It's definitely the 28th. I arrived earlier today and went to check it out for myself. There were a number of guest swimming there. I asked a cast member who told me it wouldn't close till the 28th. She also mentioned how many guests were confused about the dates when they arrive.

All of the baked goods are individually wrapped and everything looks good and fresh. There are sandwiches, cold drinks, containers of cut up fruit, small bags of mini carrots, small cups of applesauce and probably more that I didn't notice since I just took a quick look on the way back to my room.

1. Do the rooms have queen beds or double?
2. A balcony is very important and reading that not all rooms have balcony's or just step out ones makes me nervous. Has anyone had experience with requesting a room with a full size balcony and not getting one?

Thanks
1. Queen, although conspiracy theorists will say Disney's queens are smaller than normal queens. (I'm one of these theorists. )
2. There are literally one or two rooms that don't have balconies, and if you got one of those, it should be easy to complain and switch. All other rooms have balconies at least big enough for the two chairs. Enjoy!

Thanks! That looks way more elaborate than I was expecting.

I have put the pack n play in the "closet...and my son called it his own "room" fits perfectly

We will be there in 5 days!!

I just measured a queen sized bed at VWL. 80" long by 60" wide. Standard queen sized mattress.

the first floor rooms have a patio instead. we had that the one time we stayed there, and really, really hope we get a balcony. we requested a higher floor. (we have a boardwalk view room). since we requested nothing else. hopefully we won't get the 1st floor.

some of the balconies have a half wall, so you have to stand to see much.. we had one of these at vero Beach, and I hope we don't get that either. we have a studio booked.

Thanks for checkinig this out for us especially since you are thereAfter I posted this question, I received a second letter in the mail from the IPO stating that the first letter sent to guests that the pool will be closing on Jan. 2nd was wrong and in fact it is open until January 28th.

This was really a confusing situation but it sounds like everything is now accurate regarding the 28th as the start of the rehab.
