Hi Marie!!!

Yes, and there is a french door separating living area/bedroom...better setup IMHO than BWI...that said, rarely discounted unlike BWI

So, KOOK...your comment re: the reduced number of general discounts for WL since the rehab began: are you thinking that there are less rooms available for folks to book? Or is it just that more people book the WL and the "suits" don't need to offer good discounts to fill it up??

The WL Deluxe rooms are 500 SF. There are 25 of them on floors 1-6. Post-rehab PHOTOS ARE HERE and pre-rehab PHOTOS ARE HERE.

I don't believe that managers have any say in what discounts are offered. My guess is that WDW corporate/accounting, and not resort GMs, have decided to target their discounts so that larger discounts are paired with those resorts that generally have lower occupancy.

When WL began their rehab, two floors of one wing were taken out of inventory at a time, it was around that time that the general public discounts seemed to be much less than usual for WL. The CR is a convention resort in a prime location and usually has a high occupancy rate and AoA is the newest resort, and both of them have the lowest discounts, too. Even if a resort's occupancy falls, they may make more money if they can sell more rooms at a higher price. Of course, higher occupancy is ideal since guests spend money on much more than just a room. So I suppose they'll just have to try this for a while, run the numbers and see what the bottom line ends up with this 'new' approach.

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

We will be heading back home to WL Sept 20-28, 2013 but, this will be our first CL trip though. We are so excited.

We are staying at WL OFC for the Passholder Preview weekend. My kids were much smaller on previous visits but dislike sleeping together at this point. I don't want to count on getting a bunk bed room as I am sure they are very limited on CL. So...

Are there rollaways available and will they fit anywhere in the room without having to remove something ? There will only be 3 of us in the room so no occupancy issues.

There aren't any rollaways at WL due to the size of the room. I know that some have brought/shipped those Aero Beds. Did you put in a request for bunks? If you haven't, make sure you email the IPO to assure that the request is in your reservation. Ask when you check-in if you've been assigned a bunk and if you haven't, ask if there is one available, or if there will be one available that you could switch to during your stay.

Enjoy the AP FLE Preview!!
