ROFL stirring the pot....of OATMEAL! I love it! Ya know if they don't have it later this week I'm going to have to throw Randy's name around & try & get some!!
Recent reports have been exaggerated...I hope. Should you pack some instant oatmeal packets just in case?

We used the open space in the bathroom for stroller storage and did fine with three of us in the room. Enjoy your trip.

I should have known you'd be on the case!

Maybe all will be ok and we will get to go.. if it comes down to it I can go to plan B and stay in SOG.. that might even be hard to do...
I need a little Disney Magic and make this all go away...
Don't worry, my DH is RET USAF and pensions aren't affected by sequestration. He's only affected because he's a DoD civilian now. Please thank your DH for his service to our country, goofynut41

You all are too funny with the oatmeal! Thanks for my Monday giggle!

Yippeeio!

Oatmeal is serious stuff, but I do wonder if any children would care much about it over all those CL muffins and Froot Loops

Thank you to TheLodgeLady and Kook for the oatmeal update!

Since we usually just go in November and sometimes in June, it looks like I will have to try and convince the family that another trip will be a great idea so that I may enjoy the oatmeal at the OFC.

Me too...clueless on the multi-quoting!

KOOK, thanks for those early morning photos of the lobby~that's my absolute favorite thing about the WL...being down there in the peace and quiet with my coffee!

Lulu'sMom: how wonderful your news of being cancer-free! A trip to Disney is a lovely way to celebrate that!

Sorry to hear about those of you who cancelled your trips. I know how it feels. We had to cancel twice, once because we had a very sick family member who passed away. The second time was due to financial reasons. When we go this December, it will be ten years.

My husband wanted to extend our vacation for another day so we added a day at the beginning, arriving on the 4th instead of the 5th.

Besides visiting all of the parks, resort hopping, etc., we wanted a day to enjoy the lodge itself.

Day 1 we will arrive, get settled and go to Downtown Disney.

Day 2 we will relax at The Lodge and go to Cirque du Soleil and the rest of the time, we will start our adventure in the parks.

We have a Woods View. What area can I request so that we will not hear the noise from The Wispering Canyon?

Also, what is the chance of getting a king size bed.

Thank you.

DH and I are celebrating a "cancer free" trip soon and are thinking about returning to the lodge.

WL's CL is one of the TOP CL's on WDW property. Kid you not.
CONGRATULATIONS!! The perfect place to celebrate. Keep us posted on your plans. Hope you can go all out and stay in style. ( maybe take some photos of a refurbed suite)

There was plenty of oatmeal when we left 2 days ago . My 2 year-old had near tantrums every day over those darn fruit loops - that cereal was the bane of my existence all week!

Kook, both of my parents are ret. USAF!

We had a woods view room in the north wing and we really liked that wing. We could see the water, the Contemporary and the castle from our 6th floor room. We could hear the boats and the Electric Light Parade, but there wasn't any noise from the lobby or the pool. And it was very convenient to Roaring Forks.

Hi all! Headed to WL in just 20 days!!! I read in another thread that there is a resort tv channel available at Blt and cr that runs the music / soundtrack for Wishes during Wishes. Anyone know if this is available at WL also? If so what channel? We have a woods view room this time and I am hoping to maybe be where we can see a little of the fireworks from the room (requested north wing otter pond area, 4th or 5th floor).

Thanks!!

Kook.. Thank You for your nice compliment to my husband.. Thank Yours too!!
My husband is retired also out of service, combination Air Force and Air National Guard.. He now works for the Army Corps Of Engineers On a nearby Lake as a Federal Park Ranger.. Guess we will wait and see about what will happen.. He told me not to cancel just yet, so we are gonna wait and see. We still have plenty of time before Dec... We will be very sad if we have to cancel..
AS for Oatmeal.. I eat plenty of that at home.. Im all for the Mickey Waffles!!!

Oh, thank you everyone for all the congrats!
It's been a couple of years since DH and I have stayed at the WL CL and 5 yrs since the last time at the YS suite. We just adore the lounge and the cast at the OFL. Top notch.


And yes, my furbaby is a rat terrier.

Awww.....that is one food I eat everyday since I no longer have a stomach.
Oh, well, I know we can work around this.

I am toying between the GF and WL. The discounts are awful at the GF! (only 5% AP!?!?!?!-how pathetic!)
For the price of CL at GF, I can almost pay for a suite at the WL, or two CL rooms. And I put the OFL a very close second to the RPC.
