Thanks Kook

Yummm. I haven't had the blueberry cobbler. I have had apple, peach and peach berry. Hope they have blueberry in October when I am there.

Kook, Thanks so much for the picture!

Smile Less than 48 hours .....

..... and counting and we will be at the Wilderness Lodge! (God .... and Isaac, willing). Our flight leaves nice and early at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning and we'll hopefully arrive at the Lodge before our 1:15 p.m. ADR at WCC! If not, that's okay, too ---- we are looking forward to a truly relaxing, hardly-any-plans trip.

I've ordered my water from Walmart and it has arrived at the WL. I sent a small box of breakfast and snacky items down and it has arrived as well. I've got my list of ADRs (one per day at a variety of old-favorites as well as new restaurants, and as always, subject to change at any time). I'll pack tomorrow, then will glance at the DIS boards to verify the soft opening times for each park, plus take a quick lok at the entertainment schedule from Steve Soares' site (sp?), and then probably sleep oh, 2-3 hours on Saturday night before we leave the house at 5:00 a.m.

Any thing else that should be on my To-Do List?

Uummm ..... has anyone been at WL when the weather has been potentially wild like it is predicted with Isaac? I'm reading reports that Monday may be very windy and rainy - who knows what it will actually be like, but in the past, what has occurred at WL, if anything, during such times? I'm reading anything from "wear a poncho and enjoy the low lines at the rides" to "stay inside, buy extra food at the resort store, don't venture out." Any insight? Thanks!

Howdy Folks,

I stumbled across these boards and this thread today. So, I've got a bit of reading to do, but all of your posts and pictures are making me antsy, in a good way. (Thanks to all for such great info!)

We're driving from GA to stay at WL from 10/3 to 10/9. We booked a Courtyard view (the theory was it'd give mom and dad something to look at during nap time ).

Disney was part of our engagement and part of our honeymoon, but we haven't been back in over 10 years, so we're really excited about this trip.

We'll be celebrating our first *real* family vacation, our 15th wedding anniversary (10/4), and an early celebration of our little one's 3rd birthday (she's a Halloween baby).

I skimmed through OCI info in other posts and had a question.. actually a few related ones:
- Are there any benefits to OCI -- is it just intended as a time saver?
- Since we're driving, we can be pretty flexible on arrival time, so is there a best time-range to arrive so we could forego OCI?
- Are some courtyard rooms better than others? and if so, would checking in online or in person give us a chance to get a better view (again, for nap time ).

- T

We are taking our first trip to Disney this fall and decided to upgrade from POR to the Wilderness for our stay from 11/22 to 12/1. What route do you recommend to Epcot? Take the bus or boat to CR and then monorail to Epcot? I would guess the bus is faster but the boat/ferry is more scenic? We have two girls ages 8 & 2.

We were there last year for Irene...she was suppose to cross land but ended up stating right off the coast.

It wasn't bad actually. WL was on top of it, ready to bunker down if needed. We got the typical rain every day between 3-4. It was Wednesday that was the worse as that was when Irene was next to us on the coast. It rained at 2:30 or so (we were in line for Beast). But then it changed over to pretty strong winds and the rain became a torrential down pour. We tried to get cover under the boat dock because it was impossible to walk the world to the exit (even with ponchos). Ended up getting a ferry and decided to wait the rest of it out in the aquarium. Turned out awesome because we got to see Scuba diving Mickey!

WL concierge was great! Because we were flying when the hurricane was in NC heading to MA, we weren't sure if our flight would be canceled. WL told us that they would make sure we had a room and help us with our flight.

Everything turned out fine. We flew right over and didn't have any turbelance. Unfortunately we got hit in MA and lost power for awhile. The irony of avoiding a hurricane in FL to get hit in the Northeast!

Also, to help with the kids.

When the weather is bad or lightening is in the area and they close down the pool. Several Cast Members bring out loads of toys and games to the center of the lobby. When we were there it rained several hours one day and they kept lots of kids very happy and occupied.

Personally, I would do the bus and use the boat for Magic Kingdom days. Bus is faster usually but we LOVE to use the boat a few times! We'll be there a week or two after you! I can't wait.

Does anyone know what the dimensions of the safes are in the rooms? DH and I are both bringing iPads to use on the flights and mine has an Otterbox case on it which makes it bulkier than normal. I think they'll both fit but just want to be sure.
