yes...and no. There are several rental locations available within the Disney Arches.... however there is not anything that would allow you to walk from the resort.

Off the top of my head.....


There is the Disney Car Care Center (alamo/National... shuttle to the Car Care Center is available I believe from the TTC).

The Swan/Dolphin have a care rental Desk (Think it's also alamo/National... but I may be wrong).


And there is (was?) an Avis rental desk at one of the hotels across the street from DTD.




you may be better though renting from the airport. more options, and then you also don't have to worry about airport transportation.

Thank you. They have been quick with the responses with us too, so we will most probably book through them. Our stay will be in a couple of weeks, so I will give you a heads up about any issues with the booking should any occur.

Does anyone think I'd have a prayer of getting a WBC reservation for April 9 -16th?
If so, can someone recommend who to try to book through. Right now we're booked at POR Royal Room but we're used to DVC and I'm afraid we'll feel cramped. Thanks!

your issue is with Bonnet Creek, not VS. You can choose to deal with it like everyone esle, or look else where.

unfortunately for you, me as well. the timing of the price change for the shuttles comes after we booked, but before our stay.
Ok perhaps you missed what I already wrote- you and others. I don't blame VS. I am frustrated at the confusion and changes to fees by the Wyndham HOA. Miscommunication and having half the story before responding appears to be a common thread.

The cabanas are at the Tower 5 and 6 pools. They're very nice -- two lounge chairs and a couple of other chairs, a small refrigerator, and a flat screen TV. I think the price is $50 per day, but I sorta remember reading lower prices than that off-season.

4 and 6.... 5 doesn't really have room for the cabanas due to the zero entry and lazy river.


And from the reports I've seen here, the prices do tend to fluctuate based on season and availability. I'd say it's best to call the resort if you want to find out the pricing for when you are down there.

http://vacationstrategy.com/


http://www.vacationupgrades.com/

Another owner who gave me a great price, less than vacationupgrades but more than vacationstrategy (but perhaps safer as VS rebooks your reservation at 60 days for a lower rate and there is always a small chance booking won't be available) is farrellsvacations.com

I'm staying at WBC 5/10 to 5/17

What are the chances of being able to request two units next to each other? We are traveling with my parents, but each have a 2 bedroom unit reserved.

thanks

I have the same question. We don't have to be next door but the same floor or tower would be nice.

Driving Directions

Does anyone have driving directions to the parks from Bonnet Creek? I would love to study up on the easiest way around before we arrive.

Thanks,
Paul

We stay there twice a year with another family and we have only had one visit where we couldn't get our rooms right next to each other and even then their room was right across the hall from us. Just be prepared that you might not get the tower that you want or the view if the close rooms are the top priority.
