Every WL room has a balcony (except ground floor have patios), and no flowery wallpaper or bedspreads. You can even get bunk beds.

With the lower prices at WL, maybe you could add CL? The Old Faithful Club is wonderful! Just think of all the cozy areas you'd have to sit down and relax throughout the resort in front of a fireplace or in the lobby and the CL lounge area has a lot of seating, including sofas. Feel free to come on over to the thread anytime.
I have to say I agree . The GF and CR are convenient as they are on the monorail, but the WL is a great alternative with just as good (IMO) transportation to MK via boat or bus (and costs quite a bit less ).

Did you call the resort to see if this is true? When are you going? If it is true, maybe the problem will be fixed by the time you go.

GRYHNDMOM I have thought about DVC several times but it just isn't for us. I like the flexibility of booking a reg resort room and the cost of a 1 bdrm DVC is a little high for us.


WDWKOOK I do love the WL resort areas but the rooms and the restaurants are my hesitations. The rooms are smaller and the décor looks just like all of the resorts and finished basement décor of half the places here in Wisconsin. It doesn't make me feel like I am getting away from home because it looks....well... just like home....KWIM? And the limited menu at Roaring Forks as well as the overwhelming taste of smoke in a majority of the WC meals is a turn off for our family. I like the antics at WC and maybe one meal there every other trip or so but it is otherwise not a must do for us. AP is nice but there are so many other places that rank above it for us that it does not help sway the decision either. I do love the price at WL though Also complicating matters is youngest DD is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy and bananas so the food offerings of CL would just be another challenge that we don't need to add into the trip.

Staying the third week in September and got the letter, too. Wasn't planning on using it so I am not bothered. But I couldn't help but think it is taking them a very long time to replace the refrigerators.

We'll have a cooler we are bringing for the road trip so guess we will be icing it all week if they don't get the refrigerator in before we arrive 10/6. Ohhhhh really, a deluxe resort???? I guess I'm stuck with BLT at this point since renting points. With all the closures, fp+\mb, etc, I've gone from excited to be going to eh, lets just get this over with this week. Maybe it's just my normal "all planning is done and nothing to do but wait blues"???

The dresser is located next to the bed behind the orange chair:







There are also drawers in the closet:






There isn't anything under the TV but a shelf, but it does illuminate below the shelf:

Photos and details on the newly re-imagined CA Grill are available HERE.

Cape Canaveral prawns? Do they serve this on the cruise ships?

If I can get an ADR for 10/8 I will surely forgive the no refrigerator!

You can start booking CA Grill for 9/9 and after starting 8/26. I hope to get an ADR for Christmas Week. I hope you get your fridge AND your ADR!
