I would hope that Disney keeps the hard-wired Internet as well as WiFi in case the resort WiFi has issues as some have mentioned it does in some locations or times. If the hard-wired Internet is free too once they add free WiFi that would be even better but I would like the option of the hard connection for reliability.

What I've done in the past is to use my Apple Airport Express to convert the hard-wired connection into a local WiFi hot spot for our room which worked great.

Have 3 lazy weeks booked for June in OKW and part of my lazy retreat is surfing the net. Live trip reports. Checking weather. Lines. Cancelling/making ADRs. So I look forward to the free wifi. But if its too much hassle we will take the room internet alternate days. Did last year and it worked out great. Have to keep up with happenings on other side of Atlantic when away

At this point, there is no WiFi at the value resorts and I do not know if there are plans to add it.

This makes me very happy!!

We were at WLV in Sept 2011. No wifi at that time. We are considering staying club level next visit but wifi was kind of a sticking point for me. I felt that internest access should be free at club level. So wifi makes me really happy

Thanks!!

Allears has reported that there is now free WiFi at all resorts except the Campgrounds, it does say there is free wired access there, though.
