Our flight is landing at 11:20 pm, then we have to get our bags, pickup our rental car and drive to the resort so somehow I couldn't justify the cost of another night at WL. Plus I want to drive up to WL for the first time in the daylight We aren't on a dining plan although we have booked a couple table service dinners

First stay at WL

We arrive on the 20th for our first stay at WL. I really think that this will be my favorite resort. We have a Woods View Bunk Beds room and I was wondering what all of you who stay there often put as a room request and why. I was thinking of adding that I would like to be close to the lobby, would this be a good idea? Thanks for all your help!!! I can't believe we will be there in just 12 short days

Check out the Carolewood Pacific room in the VWL lobby and take the WL tour and go over to FW and sit on the WL beach and watch the EWP at 9:35 and sit in the WL lobby and people watch AND....have a great vacation!

Time to get to packing

Is this crazy to just stay for one night?
CL for just one night? IMHO, unless it's a late arrival night and you're just looking to stay somewhere less expensive just to sleep before an early CR check-in, then I'm not really in favor of the packing and unpacking and moving involved in just one night. When we drive down, we stop overnight and I pack a separate overnight bag. If you did this, it would make it easier. But, if you're flying, then you can't leave the rest of your things in the car. You'll have to take everything for just one night then do it all over again the next day.

I like the idea of checking in in the daylight

I've read others saying that the Hyatt worked out very well for them and some use points for free stays. We always drive, but I'm curious, if you do that, can you still arrange for ME the next day after your flight arrives?

Congratulations on your first stay at WL

Why do you want to be close to the lobby? Do you want a door that opens onto the lobby below? Do you want to be close to an elevator? Sometimes guests request a Wishes view from the Woods View rooms. Some of the North Wing, upper WV rooms have a partial view of Wishes

Love the photo and we're glad you arrived safely. You'll probably be stepping into WL by 8:30! I think this kind of crowd level at MCO is a sign of things to come. Helloooo IASW 20 times in a row

Here is a link to a great review/blog of the dinner buffet at Trail's End. They list most of the items with lots of photos!

We are here! We had to spend some time on ME, but when we arrived there was nobody at checkin and we got connecting rooms on the sixth floor above the checkin desk overlooking the lobby. We are in love!
