In regard to the walmart on Vineland...
I'm a morning person and am always at Walmart first thing..... if you go late at night yah its gonna be lacking (salespeople stock overnight) and it is one of the busiest stores in the area. And I've NEVER seen it dirty in All of my visits 3 vacations last year with multiple visits over there.. Yah they may have had pallets that they were unloading but as someone who works in a supermarket that does not bother me.... product comes in off the trucks on pallets, so you expect them to offload pallets so you dont see them on the salesfloor. Just not realistic!
Good Luck!

I had to make a point of going to the activity desk when someone was there to return them rather than just being able to throw them in a bin when leaving the pool.
Thank you for your reply - I think we will just take our own pool towels. I don't want to be worrying about losing them the entire time we are there

Dear Guest:

As a result of recent feedback, the Bonnet Creek Home Owners Association has reversed the
recently communicated $12 per unit / per day transportation fee at Wyndham Bonnet Creek
Resort. Beginning March 1, 2013, transportation fees will only be applied to individuals who use
the Walt Disney World® Resort shuttles at the resort.

We remain committed to delivering exceptional Count On Me! service and creating vacation
memories for you and your family and friends.

Thank you for your continued feedback and ongoing support. We look forward to your stay at
the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort.

Sincerely,
Richard Scinta, Resort Manager
Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort
I'm confused. Does it cost to use Bonnet Creek's shuttle to WDW or not? Is it $12 per person or per room if they do charge?

Good points. I'm going to guess that it's a choice when you check in, pay $12 per day for length of stay and everyone in the room gets a "ticket" for the shuttle. Pure speculation but it seems like the only thing they could do and make it fair.

Can't wait! We're staying at Bonnet this June for our wedding!

So if anyone sees a bride and a wedding party in the early morning on June 27, It's me!

2 Bedroom presidentials are located only in Tower 6. Same goes for 1BR and 3BR.

Only the 4 bedroom presidentials are located in all the towers.

There are also non-presidential rooms in Tower 6.

It means instead of charging non-Bonnet Creek owners a mandatory $12-a-day bus fee (whether they use the shuttle bus service or not) now only people who want to use the bus service will be charged.

The details of the system they will put in place to charge for bus service hasn't been revealed yet as far as I know.

Yes wireless internet was by the pool and we did use it.

I replied to your other questions in a separate post. Have a wonderful trip!

Thank you for answering my questions! I was hoping the fridge was at least stocked with water and soda. Debating if it is worth the $50/day or not. We have a toddler so I would prefer to be in the shade and having the fridge is nice to store sippy cups with milk, lunch, etc

I've tried searching the thread, but was wondering if anyone has requested quotes for 2 BR vs. 3 BR, and if so what was the price difference?? I noticed Vacation Upgrades has pricing info for the 1 and 2 BR, but not the larger units. If the price difference is not too much we might forgo Windsor Hills (which we are considering) and return to BC

We are considering booking through Vacation Upgrades for our May 2014 trip. Does anyone know what their cancellation policy is? With the discount going on at WDW right now, it is cheaper to say onsite, but without it, it is cheaper to stay offsite. So if they have the deal again next year, we will most likely stay onsite. But we want to have a back up plan in case they don't.

I have a few Bonnet Creek questions that may have already been asked, so I appreciate your patience. 2 full, and 1 extensive threads is A LOT to go through.

1. Is one able to send items ahead to the hotel that they do not want to carry with them?

2. Is there a place near BC where one can send items HOME from?

3. Has anyone used an in-room babysitting service at BC? Do they recommend a company? Or can you? We would like to have an "adult night" while we're there.

4. I have seen the google maps version of the BC layout, but I am a first timer so I'm hoping there might be a map someone can direct me to that has things labeled on it such as "where the fireworks are launched" or "pirate pool" etc. I'm hoping to have all my information about the layout in one place. I like to know before I go!

5. Can anyone tell me the estimated driving time from BC to the different parks, and the level of traffic you encountered on an early morning/end of the night run?

Thanks very much for your time and any information you are able to pass on.
