From AllEars

From now through the beginning of March, Walt Disney World will be upgrading its complimentary Wi-Fi internet service at the resorts, Downtown Disney and in the theme parks. As a result, there may be brief service interruptions, of only five minutes' duration at any given time or location. Note that Wi-Fi is not available at Walt Disney World water park and miniature golf locations, or while on Walt Disney World transportation.

Yay! I've heard some not so good comments about it. Despite being free, we still want it to work reasonably. I hope it's running smooth by Sept! Dh will be happy.

Do you think we could be a family of 7 and do it together? Thanks!
We are a family of 3 & shared the experience with a family of 6, there was plenty of room.

What is the flag family? Is it that you raise the flag at the lodge? I think my husband would really like that. How do you go about doing it?

From post #9 of this thread.


FLAG FAMILY: Each day at the Wilderness Lodge one family is chosen to be the Flag Family. The family accompanies a CM to the roof (via the 7th floor) to raise the five flags that fly over the hotel: The American Flag, the Florida State Flag, the Walt Disney World flag, and two Wilderness Lodge flags. You must ask at check-in if there is availability during your stay. The Flag Family cannot be reserved prior to your arrival.

Thank you! I swear I've read all the those intro/info posts, but clearly my mind is a sieve! That's cool! I'm definitely going to ask when we check in! Thank you!

I think we are going to do the HDDR for dinner on our first night (I've never done it before despite staying at the FWCG many times as a child) Will we be able to take a boat from WL to the campground? I know there is a walking path, but not so sure my kids will want to walk both ways.

Definitely! There will be signs on the dock that tell you which side of the dock is for boats to FW.

Do you, or anyone else, know what time they do the flag ceremony? Just wondering since we have some early breakfast ADRs on this trip. Thanks!

We did the flag raising in 2011, it was about 8am I think. Really super fun, a treat for our family!

Despite some initial resistance, WDW is finally moving right along into the 21st century

Welcome!

My DD14 would LOVE your screen name as her current BBC/Netflix obsession is Dr. Who.

Welcome, Disbug.

Yes, it's the Blue Flag boat that goes to FW and also goes to the CR - there's even a bus, too, DoctorWhoGirl.

I know that they stopped giving out small bottles of water to CL guests, but I think I read that if someone requested one, some resorts still would provide one. Does anyone know if WL club level will provide bottled water upon request?

Me & my sister stayed Valentine's day weekend for her birthday. She requested a water & they provided a large dasani bottle for her. Not sure if it was because it was her birthday or what. But that was nice of them.
