Good point about the Ft. Wilderness beds... that is out for us. My family will be staying there so we like the idea of WL being closer to Ft. Wilderness. We did look into the villas but they're not available yet and wouldn't save a ton over getting club level. DH and I definitely want to feel like we are on vacation too and able to enjoy the time after our DS goes to bed, but the $1600-$2000 savings for a non-deluxe room is just looming over us!
You might check into renting points from an owner rather than booking thru Disney. VWL can book at 11 months out and non VWL owners (home resort is somewhere other than VWL) can book at 7 months out. Sorry I have no points to rent .... I use every single one of them!

Thanks, I'll look into it in two weeks when we're officially 11 months out!

32 days...

Our Mickey Mail arrived today for our trip. It will be our second ever WL and WDW trip, following our Honeymoon there 5 years ago.

For the log, our trip will be September 8-17 in a Standard WL Room, this time with our almost 3 year old and Grandma and Grandpa. We can't wait!!!

Thanks WDWKOOK for the best thread!

I love the packing part, it's the unpacking I don't like. Lol. I have been making lists about a month ago.

We have eaten there twice, but this will be the first time on the dining plan. We have deluxe.
My girls asked to go back since they want the kids sushi.

3 Days!?!

We'll be arriving at WL on Thursday. Last time was about 10 years ago. I was wondering if it is possible to get last minute reservations at WCC? We may have a relative from FLA meeting us for dinner but I'm unsure which day so I will need to wait to make the ressie. Starting to get excited but better pack soon....maybe tomorrow

Our options are:
1. Stick with the deluxe room, the extra room will be great and allow our 3 year old to sleep while we watch tv and talk (he is the lightest sleeper ever. it's unbelievable.).

2. Book two adjoining rooms at WL and hope for a discount. If there isn't one, just keep one of the rooms.

3. Book a cabin at Ft. Wilderness or Poly. I'd need to be convinced on this one bc we don't remember the pool being nearly as great as the WL pool (we have pool time each afternoon) and we love the poly and know it has bigger rooms, but we really love the lodge!
I think the WL deluxe is perfect for your situation! The Poly won't give you the important napping/sleeping arrangements you're looking for!

Enjoy!

Good Morning!! This time next Tuesday we will be a half hour from boarding our plane
We will get to meet so many happy faces when we get there, one we are so happy about is our Disney TA who will be there the same time as us and has booked the Illuminations dessert party at the Morocco Pavilion. In all the years we have done Disney we have never seen these fireworks. We either were too tired to stay or dinner ran late. Cant wait to finally see them and have some yummy treats as well. Looking forward to bumping in to some Dis'ers as well!
