Wanting to know about this Pop Warner week... Last time we went to Disney in Dec we went the first week. There was this thing called pop warner going on, someone told me it is always the first week in Dec. SOOOO... this time I made reservations for the second week in Dec 2013 thinking we would avoid this pop warner... NOW I'm reading somewhere that they have changed pop warner week to the second week in Dec... Can I not get away from this... Does anybody know for sure when Pop Warner week will be in 2013?

Maybe check the Pop Warner website? I'm planning a trip for Dec 2013 and would like to avoid PW week. Not because I found the kids hard to deal with but because there are so few discounts during that week.

KOOK- just wanted to say have a great trip! I know you have a few more days but I don't know when I'll be back here... just got back from the dr & now DD has a virus, poor kid can't catch a break this summer. We find out if the cast comes off tomorrow Have fun & say "Hi" to Mike from DH-the guest who spends way too much time talking to them in the lounge Those poor guys, DH goes on and on. I always feel so bad for them that's why I bring them a big package of Girl Scout Cookies from DD's troop. Almost 1 month to go

Kook - I hope you have a great trip.

I would like to request scratch and sniff pictures of the cobbler at OFC
and maybe one of the resort from the boat coming back from the Magic Kingdom. I love that view.

CL Questions

I am booked CL and just got the email from the IPO. I have already made all of the ADRs but wanted to put in a room request. If I put it in the email to the IPO do I also have to call the reservations number to add it? What about the flight info for ME?

I was thinking Courtyard view close to the lounge. Is there a better way to describe this? Is this South or North side? I see most people looking for a MK view for Wishes. What are the cons of a courtyard view? Is it possible to see the lake and boat launch with a courtyard view?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Also, do they have roll-away beds available at the WL?

Thanks for your help.

That being said, I don't have kids so maybe someone who does can weigh in with a better opinion.
Thank you Pamela!

Room Requests

Likely going to upgrade to WL from AOA tonight for our November trip (22-Dec.2). So excited to be there with the Holiday decorations up. We will have a woods view room. I would appreciate any room request reccomendations. Have two preschool girls so proximity to transporation is important as is a quite room, but would love to have a possible view towards MK as some of you have posted. Thanks in advance!

First off, WL is a beautiful resort close to the MK but without the high price tag as the monorail loop resorts....we've stayed at WL more than 10 trips and prefer the north wing easterly, away from the service dock.... Here we've been close to the elevator, quick shot down and you're at Roaring Forks and out the door and voila... Right at the pool... It's also closer to the boat dock but farther from the bus depot but the resort is so compact, you'll hardly notice the walk thru the lobby...

As for views....aren't much to see, trees and CR block views of the MK.. (might glimpse some high firework from the north wing) and Bay Lake views are again tough unless you're on a wing end or high up.... We prefer courtyard, like to watch the pool and hear the music and antics....

No matter where you're at...(except a view on the villas) good vibes all over the resort.... When you hit the lobby it's hard not to become addicted, and then follow the hot spring out to the pool and hear the soothing music... Nothing could be better!! Enjoy your stay and "welcome home" as they say!

We have finally settled in to our room. I have to say that I am in love with everyone of the CL cast members! They are beyond great and so accommodating. We arrived yesterday and had requested a wishes view and if possible connecting rooms. They did not have that available, they had two rooms three or four rooms apart with a wishes view or connecting rooms. Half the family wanted connecting the other half wanted wishes. We chose connecting rooms. This morning at breakfast they came up to us and said they had connecting rooms with a castle view! How awesome is that!!! Anyway we are now in rooms 5052 and 5054 I will report back and if anyone has a specific question fire away. We are here for 13 more nights.

Well Kook, I'm baaaaaaaaack!

Kook have a fabulous trip! And when you get back, you can add me to the Lodgers Log! Yup! We switched and are coming back to the WL!!

We are not doing CL this time around, just a woods view BB room. We had already decided to ditch the DDP because we are kind of over being tied down to ressies, and didn't really want to have to plan around the CL serving hours either. We LOVED CL, but I think we'll reserve it for special occasions, and really CL was only a fraction of what we LOVED about the WL. So, we'll get everything we love, except the cookies (as we explained to DD's)

I'm so excited!

Is it 7052 and 7054? Isn't the CL floor 7? Anyway, if those are your rooms, then that is AWESOME because those were the rooms we had last week. My mom and dad were in 7052 and we were in 7054 with awesome views of Wishes! ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
