104 days!

Our first night we arrive at MCO around 11a with dinner plans at Trail's End at 535pm. Is the easiest way to get there a bus to MK and then boat? Or should we just take whatever park bus shows up first and then bus from there to Fort Wilderness? And then is there an internal bus at FW, too? Never have been there - been dying to go!!

I absolutely cannot wait to get back to Pop! I daydream about it all day!

Here is a link to the Fort Wilderness map: http://www.wdwinfo.com/maps/FWMap.pdf

From Pop, I think taking a bus to DHS and then transferring to a Fort Wilderness bus would be the most efficient (i.e. the least amount of time and walking). Taking the bus to MK and then getting a boat to FW is pleasant, but I think it will take a little more time with the boat part. The upside to going MK and boat, however, is that you won't need to take the internal bus at FW to get to the Trail's End restaurant. The boat drops you pretty near Pioneer Hall.

We've stayed at FW in the past and it really is a nice resort. The beach and grounds are nice to explore. Take some time to wander around. Depending on times, you might be able to do the Sing along with Chip and Dale campfire. I think that typically starts at 7:00 with a movie shown after around 7:45. If you have little kids, that can be fun. It's by the Meadow Trading Post, so not in the same location as Trail's End, but easy to get to internally.

Has anyone tried asking for a stepstool at POP? In a different resort's thread someone mentioned getting a stepstool brought to their room to make it easier for little kids to use the sink and toilet. DS and I will survive without it, but it would definitely be nice to have...

I believe I read that Joffrey's is the new brew. I have had it once or twice other places and it good. If you are a Starbucks fan, it does not compare....but it is MUCH better than the brown swill that Nescafé is trying to pass as coffee now.

Hi,

We have 2 rooms booked for this summer. Does anyone know if the connecting door can stay open between the 2 rooms or does it shut itself? The kids will be in the other room but I wanted to keep the door open during our stay.

Thanks!

There would be 2 doors-each room can lock the connecting door. They do no swing shut. I had connecting rooms in Jan 12-we kept the doors ajar not open but I think you could keep them completely open if you wanted to.

Yes you can keep them open the entire time if you choose to

Thanks so much! I am requesting connecting, lake view 50's or 60's. We had a lakeview room at AoA earlier this month & it was so peaceful!

Thanks again!

I've requested one for my Gram to get into bed easier and it worked out fine, might take a couple of requests though.

http://www.amazon.com/Folding-Stool-...d_sim_sbs_hg_3 We were able to find something exactly like this at a dollar store that was easy to fold up and bring in the bottom of the luggage.

Smile Pop is so nice.

We will be going back in May and really lok forward to it. We also like to look over Hourglass lake and some of the best pictures I've ever taken at WDW are in the morning looking out over it. More than a few mornings I have seen hot air balloons going over POP. Very pretty.

I requested a lake view 50's room too. I don't mind walking for 2 extra minutes to get my POP Waffles or ride a Disney bus when the trade off is peace, a less heavily used room and excellent water views ( that would cost millions to enjoy here in So Cal).

'Sides. The only purpose my room serves is to sleep and shower...and fall asleep to the fun resort ad loops on everything you can do at WDW.

8 more days until my very first WDW trip. It still hasn't "hit" me yet? Is that weird?

Can you ask housekeeping for a small in room coffee maker? Also do they sell milk in the shop in quarts?

No, there are no in room coffee makers available from housekeeping. They will allow you to bring your own small one though if you'd like.
I don't recall seeing milk for sale in quarts...it is available in half gallon jug and like a 16oz size.

I do not believe they have in room coffee makers available at any of the value resorts.

You can get a 2 quart container (1/2 gallon) of milk. They also have the single serving sizes of milk (1/2 pint?).
