Our room was right above Kouzzina's...which is right beside Seaside Sweets. I will try to attach a picture. I took one from outside looking up at our room just for this reason!! :-)

Our room was above Seashore Sweets. It was a deluxe club level room. It's the top left balcony with the blue and white striped awning.

#4253 is to the left of the blue/white awning, sort of tucked behind, on the picture. (Spoodles is now Kouzzina's.) It shares a balcony (w/ the divider) with #4255. #4253 was the second door on the left after passing through the Innkeeper's Club door. For reference, we also had an adjoining inside door to #4251.

I've never stayed in a Cottage, but hopefully, someone else might be able to answer your cottage question about the larger loft bedroom.

The WL Deluxe room is not a loft, is smaller, less expensive and only has one bathroom, but has two balconies. On the WL thread's first page which is hyperlinked in my signature, I have a map that shows their location and a more thorough description. There are 25 of them on floors 1-6. As you already noted, they aren't located on the 7th CL floor, but they are all within the main building, unlike the BWI cottages. Beginning April 15, WL will begin a top to bottom room rehab., one floor at a time. I'm going to be there in less than a month and I will ask if there is a floor rehab schedule. So if you do stay at WL in December, you might even get a totally renovated room

In making your room-type decision, I think you need to take into consideration:

~Location/Resort amenities

~Price

~Size/Room features

~Proximity to CL lounge


Good luck!
Thank You very much for your info,It is much appreciated.I guess that it is going to be a tough decision between The Cottage Suites & Deluxe Room at Wilderness Lodge The cottage suites are a high contender though,Which Club level do you recommend between Boardwalk & Wilderness Lodge? Which resort will have more of a Christmassy feel between the two? The price beween the deluxe room & Cottage suite at Christmas well there really is not much difference,So it comes down to where i want to stay & its a tough choice.
Thank you again for all your help

Hi all. We are back from our Anniversary Trip and really had one of the best times ever at WDW. I enjoyed the Winter/Summerland miniature golf as a nice diversion. And California Grill was another new experience with mixed results for our night.

Back to BWI: Our room was #4235 directly across from the Innkeeper’s Club Lounge. The room was nice and clean, with a standard BWI room interior. No special treat awaited us for our Anniversary, although we enjoyed our CL gift of chocolates. Staff was excellent including those I had interaction with most: Joe, Jackie, Linda, and was it Eduardo or Ernesto(?), I should have taken notes. Anyway, they were just wonderful. And Raymond at the front delivered us and also checked us out. Nice boy. CL breakfast offerings were plentiful and early evening snacks were fine.

And I am so glad I was able to meet up with sjs314 and give her a big hug. It was the highlight of my trip.

I am very glad you had a great trip. Did your DH like the funnel cake??? And I am glad you got to give Sheila a hug too!

Did I mention we had the BEST time ever????

Sounds like you'll be returning to The Innkeeper's Club, right?

I will be staying CL at BWI for the first time in just a few weeks so I can better answer your question then. On the WL thread's first page that's hyperlinked in my signature, I have some photos of The Old Faithful Club/WL that I took at Christmas 2010. Though I haven't personally been in BWI at Christmas, I do have photos of BWI at Christmastime on the first page of this thread (last post).

I'm very partial to WL at Christmas and we just LOVE their CL lounge and staff. There are many fireplaces throughout the resort, cozy leather seats, garland/decorations everywhere... It just feels extra special at Christmas so that would be my personal resort pick. It's also lots of fun to go next door to Ft. Wilderness for a walk or even on the bus to see all the absolutely terrific motorhome decorations. They are amazing and they even decorate their "yards!" Have you considered a split-stay where you stay at both the WL and BWI? That's what I'll be doing in just a few weeks

Upload your photos to a free photosharing site such as PhotoBucket. You can then edit your photos, if you like. Each photo will have an IMG code that corresponds only to that photo. Copy the IMG code and paste it right into your post and the photo will magically appear If you need more help, feel free to PM me.

Welcome back! Thanks for posting your review. I'm disappointed to hear that there wasn't at least a token anniversary remembrance in your room. It was noted in your reservation, right? Did you at least get the pin or a character signed photo? How many nights were you there?

I'm going to post your room information to the first page - yes, you're famous now! Thanks for reminding me that I should probably take notes when I'm there:roll eyes:

ETA: Forgot to ask if you would book BWI/CL again?

WDWKOOK: Oh my gosh, you're right — I forgot to say the most important line of my review...

BWI is my hands-down F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E resort at WDW.

I can't wait to go back again. Did you notice my avatar of BWI artwork?

Pictures of room 4253, standard CL. (I forgot to take them until after we had unpacked so overlook the mess.)

View of outside of #4253 and #4255. These rooms share a balcony with a divider. Room #4253 is connected to #4251 with a door in the room.



And, of course, the great pool!!

Pool ... no chairs

My only "complaint" is about the pool in the afternoons. It seems that people get up in the morning and come put towels on chairs and then leave for the parks, etc. When we came back from the parks for an afternoon swim around 2:00, there were not many chairs at all that didn't have towels on them ... and certainly none together. Not sure what BWI could do about this, but it's my only negative of the entire trip.
