Did early check in I could not make any special requests except a porta crib. Don't need that with teens. I thought you could request more ie location, floor ect.

LOL. I was just checking out the thread to bump it, just in case.

Autocorrect once changed my first name, last initial to "floppies." I was sort of offended.

After about 9 hours, the Kook mobile landed in GA. We thought we'd try a different hotel this trip and we couldn't be more pleased. The hotel is fairly new, we have a very clean and super quiet studio suite (an oxymoron?) and there is even a new Logans Roadhouse right next door which was mighty convenient for this tired crew. We head to Boca Raton tomorrow then check-in Saturday at BLT for a few nights then Tuesday we'll be in the happiest place on earth - WL!

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
So how in the world is Mike ever going to know which DH is yours? EVERYONE loves talking with Mike. I know just what you mean. I feel like all the OFC CMs need their own vacation after we've all been there. They're such great sports.

I'm sorry that DD is now ill. This has been a very rough summer for her. She needs to get well so she'll be in tip top shape for school.

and maybe one of the resort from the boat coming back from the Magic Kingdom. I love that view.
You're too funny. Yankee Candle must have a cobbler scent. I love the view of WL from the back, too. It's so amazing to take in all its grandeur.

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.
Let's see, you don't have to call the WDTC IF you have all your requests added to your reservation by the IPO - they can do this for you.

I've never used ME, but I would think the IPO can do that, too. They will certainly tell you if they can't.

The North Side courtyard views will face toward the marina/VWL/FW. The South Side CV rooms will face toward the MK and you can see some of Wishes. You can't really see the boat launch from a CV, but you absolutely see Bay Lake the geyser and the pool - it's our favorite view. The downside is that in the afternoon, the pool party music and PA system is loud. If you keep your sliding door closed it's not too bad, but if you're sensitive to noise and want peace and quiet in the late afternoon, you might prefer a Woods View.

Did you upgrade yet?

All the Woods view rooms would be quiet as they face the woods and not the WL pool. For a Woods View facing toward the MK request a North Wing room and if you want a better Wishes view, you can request a high floor, but some of the 6th floor rooms do have an enclosed balcony. You can also just request a Wishes View.

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!
to the thread pepe of ohio!

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.
This sounds perfect for you and your family - I'm so glad it all worked out and you're happy. See you in the lounge - we check-in Tuesday

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!
Just post your dates and I'll add you - yippee!!

That is too ironic.

What do y'all suggest I request?
I've not stayed at VWL, so hopefully someone else will chime in, but requesting a "quiet location" might be a good place to start

Yep, the RPC switcher - yet again you managed to not quite make it up to RPC, but did you even get as far as CL check-in? I may be confused, but Jason may have been fairly new back in April. Very nice and patient young man, if I recall correctly.

I remember that. How wonderful of them to be able to put you back in your favorite room.

There are so many DIS acronyms and they can get out of hand. Thank you for asking about OFC so that others will know as well.

CL = Club Level (the generic term)
OFC = Old Faithful Club (the name of the Club Level at Wildnerness Lodge).

You see people use them both.
Yes, I should do that within the Club Level section

And, this, my friends is why I skipped posting from my iPhone in the car today. Even with the DIS's iPhone app, it's rather diabolical posting from that little screen and typing on that virtual keyboard - yes, I'm showing my age.

OCI (Online Check-in) doesn't really allow many requests at all, but don't fret, just call the WDTC or your TA and have them add all your requests to your reservation ASAP. The room assignor will see your reservation about 3-5 prior to arrival, so there's still time. You can also ask again at check-in.

Yippee! It will be our 2nd trip to WL and WDW too, following our Honeymoon there 4 years ago. We're 86 days out and could not be more excited to come "home". Have a fantastic trip with your family!!
