Our trips overlap - we're there for 10 nights, too after BLT. I have a feeling your second time at WL won't be your last

There is a slim possibility that we'll go, but I figured it's better to have a ressie and cancel if we have to than to go to book later and not get what we want. We will only go for 4 or 5 nights and DH isn't much for split stays on such short trips, so he wouldn't want a split. We did a 2/4 split in December 2010 and DH wasn't too thrilled to have to move after the first 2 nights and just when we were getting settled into the 2nd resort, it was time to pack up and go home....so he asked that I don't do anymore splits . I'll have to look at hstrickland's TR. I think I remember reading it when she just started it, so I'll have to find it and look at it again. If I remember correctly she had some great pics of the lounge, which I think I'll love as the seating looks similar to the lounge in OFC .
I understand about not wanting to do the split. I wouldn't do them either for less than 3 or 4 nights (and only if the WL portion was much longer)

Yes, Heather's photos are great and yes, she has a section just on the Kilimanjaro Club - check it out!

Here is a picture I took last year on our brief visit.


WILDERNESS LODGE by midge3426, on Flickr
What a lovely photo and welcome, midge3426!. What a great time to be going to WL and especially the OFC. So many kids are back in school and it's after the Labor Day weekend - it must be almost like a ghost town. I know many love the GF (and I love k&a&c's wonderful thread), but heck, it doesn't even have a geyser

So by my really unofficial and inaccurate count, yours, princessesX3, mine and TheLodgeLady's WL/WDW stays overlap?






If you guys are interested and think it might help to facilitate some DIS meet 'n greets, I would be happy to post/maintain a DISer WDW/WL/VWL upcoming trip calendar to the first page. Those who wanted could post their WDW/WL/VWL stay dates and I would put them into the 'Lodgers Log'. Don't worry that you're not necessarily staying at WL or that your trip might change - being a member of the Resort Changers' Club, I'm used to that uncertainty

Just stay away from the cupcakes. I don't want them to run out before I get there!

Anyone know how to do a screen capture then post it?

Love the pic . I know how you feel about the GF. I've stayed there twice on 2 girls trips and wanted DH and the boys to try it, so I booked it for a family trip. They thought the resort was ok and everyone had a great time, but they didn't love it like they do other resorts (i.e, the WL and Poly ). They will stay there again if I wanted to, but if they had to choose, the WL is at the top of their list .

I hear ya......once it gets down to those last few days before leaving, it goes slow for me as well .....that is until the day before leaving when I start panicking that I'll forget something or I won't get everything done at home, the clock ticks faster than ever .

DH and youngest DS were out of town and just got back last night so I haven't asked them why they chose AKL CL over WL CL, but I'm going to find out today as I'm curious . Not that there's anything wrong with AKL as we've stayed there before and we all loved it, but there's just something about the WL that gets me, especially at Christmas time . But with that said, I've always wanted to try CL at AKL, so it's a tough decision to make and I can almost guarantee I will go through MANY resort changes in the next couple of months.....even if they are just in my mind and not actually changed every time .

How nice of you to keep track of people going to Disney and the WL for meet n greets . I have been on a couple of girls trips with gals I've met here on the Dis and I think it's a great idea for people to meet while at Disney just to say hello and put a face with a name .

Happy Sunday all!!

Wow, miss a day and we're already on page 6 .

Did some clothes shopping yesterday, Florida tax free day. Even though we don't have kids, we benefited by buying new things for us, lol. Lots of savings and sales.

Smile Let's get this log rolling!

The Lodgers' Log is up on the first page/post #11. Just post here to let me know if you'd like your WDW trip to be included in the log or if you have any changes...like I had (again) today. (I had to shorten BLT and WL by a day in order to make it home for DD's freshman orientation.)
