I used that Dream Res link up top to book. Upon searching there was Wyndham Bonnet Creek and Orlando Bonnet Creek. Can someone tell me the difference? Wyndham 2br $231 and Orlando 2br $109? Both have the same address.

Has anyone used My Resort Network to rent from a WBC owner? I found a godd deal for our dates in June and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this site. The owner is Larry and Ruth Wahlburg from Laru Resorts.

This is how I book and will book again! It was less expensive than VS or VU

Good to hear you have used them. It is the best price compared to VS and VU. Did you use some sort of rental agreement document? I have never done this before.

Does anyone have a current bus schedule for WBC? I know from reading this thread most go with a rental car, but unless we can get an awesome deal on a minivan for 10 days, it is the shuttle for us.

We have a few questions on Bonnet Creek.

Can a 2 bedroom deluxe and a 2 bedroom presidential sleep 8 people? We are 4 adults and 3 kids. I've seen pics of both. If the price is close enough, we may opt for the presidential because we like the lay out better.

How is the parking? Some review sites say it's pretty difficult to find a spot, especially in the summer. What's been your experience?

What are the best shuttle companies to take you from the airport to BC if we opt out of getting a minivan?

Thanks for your help. The place looks incredible.

.
The deluxe and pres are the same layout.....just the decor is different. Not totally sure but I think the pres only sleep 6....no sofa bed.

We were there this past July in building 5. Parking in front of the building was just OK during the day but after about 7:30pm there was nothing left. We would have to go into the garage to find spot. The night we arrived it was approx 10pm on a Sat. and we had to go all the way to the top floor of the garage to get a spot.

If anyone has a reservation made Feb 15th or later, I highly recommend that you check out the thread on the Orlando Hotels and Attractions board about the new $12 fee per day for transportation (parking/shuttle). At this point, it is a little unclear if the fee is for all guests (who are not owners at WBC...renting from an owner doesn't count) or just the guests who elect to use the shuttle.

That means an extra $84/week to pay at the front desk...not exactly a drop in the bucket.

I would recommend you contact your rental company for more information...someone on the thread mentioned Ken and Denise Price were refunding their renters the $84 as the contract said "no extra fees."

We will have a rental car- will it still be charged?

It's unclear at this point what is happening with the fee. The other thread says that it's a fee that will be charged to ALL non-owners. There is also a few reports of people calling WBC to ask about it and they have been told it's a shuttle use only fee. The one thing that stands out is it appears that the WBC staff do not want to admit that they don't really know right now.

So far I haven't seen anything that pertains to a parking only fee. There are Wyndham owners who have chimed in on the thread to say that other Wyndham resorts charge this fee.

Thanks for the response of the 2 bedroom question.

Also I have been getting quotes on WBC and have noticed an note (usually in the fine print) that parking fees are not covered.

5. How can Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort help me plan for my Disney vacation?
The resort offers scheduled transportation to the Disney Theme Parks for a mandatory fee of $12 per day per unit. Our on-site Disney Planning Center is staffed with Disney Cast Members who can assist you with a full array of Walt Disney World® Tickets, Disney Dining Reservations, and insider tips for visiting the parks.

No sure whom it applies to

Very bizzarre! I just looked at this and they are both WBC so I don't understand!!! Possibly one is Presidential units and one is Deluxe???? Very strange.
