We didn't love it last time (didn't hate it either, it was just okay, though I do remember the mac and cheese being fantastic), but we didn't love Jiko our first time, either, and REALLY liked it on our recent trip.

We did a bunch of booking yesterday -- the one studio night in VWL, the DCL cruise, and our April 2014 AKL 1BR stay.

I have to call and add room requests, will request the high floor bay lake view you suggested, that sounds perfect.

We'll probably want something quick in the morning, does the counter service (Roaring Forks, right? Wow, this whole thing is new to me!) have good muffins or anything like that? Do they still have them out in the afternoon/evening if we wanted to get them the day before so we have them in the room already? Don't know if we'd do that, but it might be good to have the option.

Thanks!!!

Here are some WL roof photos, but I don't think I see any solar panels in these, but that doesn't mean they aren't somewhere else on property.

I will post my findings here - which may not be much, but I'll try

I am envious of your 15 nights - would be so awesome to be away from work for that long! I hope your trip is fantastic! :-)
Well, DH hasn't really been able to take leave since the whole sequestration business started so he ended up with more than usual that he needs to take. It's a win-win for both of us

Yep, RF has all you'll need and their cupcakes are amazing, but no muffins in the evening. If you're not in a big hurry, WCC has a great breakfast served family style and so does TE at FW. The Mercantile also sells pre-packaged baked goods and you can always order room service ahead of time

I love this thread
We are planning for end of Feb. We just stayed at AKL this past Feb. But when we ate at whispering canyon i fell in love with wl location. We are magic kingdom people.
I looked around the lobby a little. Looked cool. Dd loves the mercantile. We still regret not buying the sasquatch soap lol!
If i want to be close to roaring forks, close to boat launch, and see bay lake with an open balcony....what would u all recommend for a room request?
And now as usual i impatiently wait for the next year to open up...ugh...

We were there last February for the first time and loved it. If you ask for woods view overlooking Otter Pond, north wing, 5th floor or lower (6th floor has the closed balconies), you'll have a view of Bay Lake through the trees and be close to the elevators that are closest to Roaring Forks. You might be able to see some fireworks from the higher floors. We had a 6th floor and could see fireworks, the castle and the monorail, but it had the dormer balcony which I didn't care for.

ETA: the courtyard view, inner courtyard, north wing will put you close to Roaring Forks and the boat dock

With free dining, I was able to upgrade to courtyard view Sept 14-21. Hoping for a bear face room, as I think my girls would love it! Can't wait to for the girls only/birthdays trip!
