Thank you, thank you! I will see if I can get my hands on the Halloween flyer this weekend while we are there.

Yea, unless you made a change to the documents recently, or were delayed in getting in the Magical Express information, your documents should be in... I just received documents for someone going over Thanksgiving! I would have your agent call and confirm that they are coming...

You're welcome and I think your girls will have a great time. The kids are kept busy and even the parents get in on the fun sometimes.

Next question: Are we able to purchase MVMCP tickets the day of the party (if there is still availability) at the concierge? The day we would like to go to the party, we plan on spending the day at AK rather than MK so we wouldn't be at MK to see if it is still available to buy the tickets. (We don't want to go if it is sold out, or if the weather isn't good so we are not purchasing ahead of time.)
I've never done it, but I would think you would be able to purchase them. Hopefully, someone who has actually done it will verify.

Just so I haven't misled you, while the Cub's Den accepts children up to 12, the free activities might be geared more toward the younger kids. There is a lot of coloring, gluing, etc... I just don't want you to think they're like the activities they have at AKL, for example, where you pay to paint pottery or at BLT/CR where you can pay to make tie dye shirts.

I showed them the pictures of the WL, and their jaws hit the floor - "It's like a huge mansion!!!" They started exploring the Disney website, and so far want to go on EVERYTHING.

Friday can't come soon enough.
Oh, that is so sweet. Just imagine when they see it in person - they may never get to all those rides

Do you think it will be very disappointing after being at CL the week before?
Should I tell him to get a regular room at the WL? What do you guys think of POP?

Thanks again!!

I haven't stayed at a Value, but I would imagine it would be a harder transition going from a Deluxe to a Value than the other way around. You'll be going from queen beds to doubles and from interior rooms to exterior and you won't have any boats. But, it's only for one night and it will be less money.

Since no one has answered your question about Pop yet, may I recommend you check-out the wonderful Pop Century thread which is managed by my good friend, Janet B. Her groovy thread is located HERE. Just tell her the KOOK sent you and she'll take good care of you

I believe they serve till around 8 most nights so if you grab some drinks right before the show starts at 8, you should be good to go. They also sell adult beverages at the Mercantile.

That's frustrating. The TA should call them if they aren't received in a few days. Maybe they arrived today

If it were me, I'd just get the reg. room at the WL. Last month, we went from CL at the GF, to "trying out" the Little Mermaid rooms at the AofA because it was new. I won't do that again!! Even the cuteness factor of the LM rooms didn't make up for the step down from deluxe to value!

Wow! really that hard,huh? I am still deciding....I am going to talk to my hubby today. Lets see what he says. Also if I check out from WL and to a regular room can I still use the CL just for that day ofcourse. I heard someone say you can use resort amenities until midnight. Is that so?

WDWKook- You are awesome! Great advise and you really know Disney!

Me, too. Did you stay RPC or Sugarloaf? Not that one or the other would make that transition any 'easier.' How long did you stay at AoA?

Awww, thank you, yolie912. Yes, that's true that you can use the CL lounge until 10 PM (when it closes) of your check-out day, however, it technically wouldn't be your check-out day, it's your check-out and check-back-in day, so I'm not sure how that would work. You are checking-out of CL, but then you're checking right back in to a non-CL room. Have you still been checking everyday for availability? Is there any other Deluxe you've ever wanted to try? That might be an easier transition than CL to Value, but again, we're only talking one night.

Well that's pretty darn perfect then, you check-out of your CL room and into a Standard room and you'll still have lounge access till 10. The next day, you just grab breakfast at RF or WC.

If you wanted to switch to another Deluxe for one night outside of the MK resort area, I would recommend BWI/YC which is within walking distance to DHS and Epcot or AKL. Within the MK resort area, I would recommend CR, especially the Tower. Or you could even stay in the FW area and try a cabin, which is in the Moderate category. It has a bedroom with a double bed and bunks and a Murphy Bed in the living room and a kitchen. Sort of a compromise between Pop and a Deluxe. Have you checked-out the Pop thread yet?

Yes, that's a good idea in regards to breakfast at RF or even WC.
By that time I would want a hot breakfast being that CL
Only has continental. Yes, I checked out the POP thread very informative.
When hubby gets home tonight I will tell him to get
The room with bunk beds. lets see what he says...

Congratulations! We love WL and find it to be a wonderful value and a beautiful place to go home to each day. That is an awesome time of year, and we hope to be there then too!
