Hi Nicole

I'm so glad you enjoyed VB. It really is a beautiful resort.

About the kidless friend. As a kidless person, I would LOVE to go with a 7 year old! You might be surprised, she may really want to go!

So many exciting things on the cruise. Ducky Williams was there. Don Hahn the exec producer of Frankenweenie showed the Nautical Premier of the movie! Fantastic! Met Jason Surrell, imagineer, and designed vinylmation with him. Learn to draw with Ducky. Goofy's voice guy was a lot of fun. There was someone there from the archives..but I never made it there! The final night..there was a special show with Disney Broadway stars: Ashley Brown, Mary Poppins herself, Alton White...presently playing Mufasa, Lindsay Mendez..opening in a couple of weeks in the revival of godspell, and Josh Strickland...American Idol runner up from season 2 and Tarzan on Broadway. They were so willing to talk and take photos! Claire Bilby really worked on talking with members to hear what they want out of membership. D23 is going to allow ALL DVC members to be a basic member as part of DVC. YOu will pay an adjusted amount for the full membership if you want it with the magazine. Talk is that next year's cruise may be in Oct or Nov. Only about 250 kids on the cruise. Lots of characters. Aquaduck! Spa treatments! (specials for the members too), Shows! Palo! Pirate Night and more. It was amazing!!
Will work on photos next! Oh..and the gifts!! Look on the DVC facebook page to see all of the wonderful gifts we received!! Awesome!

Dear VWL Groupies....walking distance.

My in-laws are making plans for a trip to the WDW and are seriously considering VWL because of the decor and proximity to Magic Kingdom. They are concerned about the walking distance from the Villas to the bus stop and boat dock. Can anyone share information on walking distances I would be grateful.

1st, let me say, Welcome to the Groupies!!
The walk to the bus stop is not far at all. The boats are a bit farther, but going out the back of the villas, heading by both pools, is a shorter distance than heading through the main lobby area. VWL is the smallest of all the Disney DVC properties, so the hallways arent very long. I would guesstimate distance from villas exit to bus stop, maybe 75 yards, boats, maybe 200 yards. Hope this helps.

The bus stop for both the WL rooms and the Villas sits in between the two, and in neither case is the walk long. Though some complain that the rooms at the far end of the halls in the Villas are a haul, they are nothing compared to many other resorts. Still, your in-laws might want to request a room closer to the elevators. From the elevators, it's just steps to the lobby doors leading out to the walkway, and then the stroll to the bus stop is slightly more than one minute at a moderate pace, perhaps two minutes if taken at a leisurely pace. The boat dock is farther away as you must either walk through the lobby of the main Lodge building or our preferred way which is to go through the back doors of the Villas lobby, cut through the Hidden Springs pool area (that's the pool located at the Villas), then skirt around the main Lodge pool, by the geyser, and then on to the docks. The docks sit more or less opposite the far left wing of the Wilderness Lodge proper. Even so, I'd estimate that the walk to the docks from the Villas is less than five minutes. I'm certain your in-laws will enjoy VWL, as it is the most intimate and quiet of all the DVC resorts.

Prayer request

Hey folks
I know where to go when I need these

Tammy is returning from England tomorrow and though I know flights are a routine thing to some, I prefer praying before getting on one, we pray before a long trip in the car, asking for traveling graces and keeping others around us safe as well.

So, my prayer request is specific for sure, I pray for Tammy to have traveling graces to the airport(a 3.5 hr bus ride)and traveling graces on the plane.

TIA

Thanks for the warm welcome and information. It is so hard to judge distance on maps issued by Disney. The in-laws are so excited about the trip and the theme of the property.
