Just a few... I think MEK did the same thing- she was leaving WLV so take pictures. You just snap away to keep it with you.

I found out you can be online at either 8 or 8:30 am when the phone line open at 9? I think that is right. It is 1/2 hour before the phone lines open. When I was booking Dec., I logged in and it was not updated but then the site is unavailable then updated so hang in during the time where they are actually updating and GOOD LUCK.

Beautiful pictures, Pat. I am not a fan of the Wilderness Lodge at Disney, but this resort at Disneyland really appeals to me (figure that one out). I love the studio décor. Very nice job on the photos.

Thanks for the DVC info Pat. One more question:

If we are borrowing points, and we need to waitlist the room we want, what happens if the waitlist does not come through?
How long would we wait before we should cancel the waitlist and try to change our plans?

My dilemma is that we are wanting GCV, but if we can't get it, there are not any other options at Disneyland. We'd have to come up with a whole different trip to WDW, and it would be on pretty short notice. We'd kind of be SOL, no?

Okay that was more than one question. Sorry.

Well, the resort and the room look fantastic. Boy, I'd love to stay there!

I have to admit, the only thing that bugs me is the carpet in the main lobby. It just seems too loud for the room to me. Other than that, it's WL West!

It is very WL but not so "woodsy". I was very happy witht the studio, very spacious and nice.

When I had to waitlist BWV for May it entailed borrowing. Online I had to "agree" to allow then to borrow the points IF the waitlist came through. If your waitlist does not come through I guess the borrowing does not happen.

Now if you get one night at a time or only able to get some of the nights and can't use it then the points that are locked in and borrowed already would have to be used by the end of the use year.

I guess then your use year would be important. If the trip would be close to the end of your use year, then it is risky.

Funny the carpet is only in within the chairs in the lobby - it actually flows out into a tile border that matches the carpet pattern.

From above it looks really loud but the pattern is so big that when you are on the floor, it kind of flows.

At first I was staring at the shower curtain and then realized it had Bambi on it.

I didn't notice the dancing bears on the check-in desk! Love that! What a fun touch.

You were in 4516?

We were in 5516!

You could see the pool if you looked left, right?


it's a small world after all...

Nice update, and again it looks like a great place to stay! Right on top of the action!

And that room looks so inviting and relaxing........although I'm sure with the parks right there you were probably too busy to relax much!
