So KOOK and other experts, as for CL rooms, I don't care about how far I am from the OFC. A little extra walking means another snack! As for views, a partial view of the castle isn't really important, I would rather see more of the lodge, probably not so much the villas. So, does that narrow it down? Any suggestions?

Checked in! They were unable to honor our request for connecting rooms although the CM was on the phone checking for about ten minutes. She said they were so full that there were no connecting a available either today or tomorrow. :-(

In a pair of adjoining standard rooms over looking the infamous loading dock. I will report on noise tomorrow but so far so good.

Otherwise, just catching up during nap time. A nice afternoon in the pool interrupted by a brief rain shower. After nap, it is dinner with Chef Mickey!

Very sad news for us, Randy has left and been promoted to something on Team
Disney.... Tina has taken his lace, has been with Disney for 19 years, recently at AKL... We talked at length today, and she seems very nice... But I miss seeing Randy.

The bad news: fire alarm testing from 11-2 today.

The good news: if there really is a fire, you definitely won't sleep through it! :-)

Please keep us posted about the room noise. I will be checking in tomorrow and am very curious. I have a feeling we will be in a loading dock room as well. Darn very crowded and the stupid fire alarms.

I just spoke on the phone yesterday with the chef from WL. They are wonderful about cooking foods for special diets. I suggest you email disney at specialdiets@disneyworld.com and tell them your needs. They will send you a form to fill out with your ADRs and other places you intend to dine. The chefs will call you about your needs and discuss the best way to accomodate you. The chef from WL is very nice and I have no fear of ordering from the room service menu and letting them know what the chef and I discussed.

I PM'd you yesterday, but want everyone to know that Randy, the CL manager, is actually just on a temporary assignment for 3-6 months with their Line of Business.

KOOK - Randy's move is temporary? My parents got to know him over the summer. They thought he was fantastic! I know my dad believes he is destined for Disney greatness! But they'd love to see him again.

Thanks!

Great dinner at Chef Mickeys last night. The food was ...well, you don't go for the food but everyone in our party did find something that they were able to enjoy. Kudos to the fantastic CM's! Even amidst all the chaos, Mickey and the gang really took time with each child. Minnie even sat with us and had a long "discussion" with my DD who told her that she could have a fork and spoon but not a knife. Minnie then collected all the knives from our table and put them out of reach of the kids. So cute.

When we left, everyone was tired and just wanted to get back to the lodge. Unfortunately, as soon as we boarded out boat, the electric water show slid in front of the WL marina. We were stuck but our great boat captain didn't miss a beat and sailed us out into the middle of Bay Lake. All of a sudden BOOM! FLASH! and "Hallow" Wishes erupted over the MK. We stayed on the water and watched the whole show!

Back at the lodge, some funny business is still going on with fire alarm and electrical testing. We heard a few alarm chirps around midnight and the infamous loading dock rooms provided a rather loud hum from what sounded like a huge truck idling outside the window. I think it was actually a test of the WL back up power generators as there was a note about electrical testing in the room. Well, along with the fire alarms, we now know the generators work too!

We live in a big city and are used to ambient noise but this made it a tough slog for a few hours last night. Off to MK today and will see if we can talk/beg/bribe our way into FLE.
