Kook,

It is a Pebble Smartwatch. The countdown watchface was altered by a co-worker of mine. He changed the date and added the Mickey ears and Disney World text for me. The WL watchface I made with an online watchface generator.

The Pebble Smartwatch was a Kickstarter project last year and I backed it. You can now buy the watch from their website or Bestbuy in the US. It communicates with your iPhone or Android and shows your text messages, emails, caller ID, and much more on your watch. It also has pretty much unlimited watchfaces as you can have 8 loaded on the watch at a time and change it when you want. It's cool!

For Kook or anyone else that's been recently, is there by chance any new WL merchandise in the Mercantile?

Quick question about territory Lounge...are kids allowed? I know my daughter (8) would love the fondue and it would be great to stop in to get a quick bite after we fly in. Thanks!

I must say that I am on other travels sites for various vacatons, but this thread about the Wilderness Lodge has to be the most active I have been on. Everytime I have the opportunity to visit, it has added yet another page.

Now we are in the planning phase for next July. So far away, but cannot wait to come home again to the Wilderness.
The first time we visited we had the opportunity to be a guest in the Yosemite Suite (won a little lottery money).
Now with College tuition we just want to come back.
Looking for a room with a view, does not have to be a suite,
Eagerly reading all the posts, and when I know something or need to ask I will be back.

Thanks ahead of time

Later

Wow! The new room map is fantastic Thanks! A great thread just got even better

I now see two woods view rooms at the end of the North Wing overlooking Bay Lake. Are they on every floor? What room request would get one of those if they're available?

Currently my room request is Otter Pond, higher floor. I may switch "higher floor" to "open balcony". But I think I want to be as high as possible and still have an open balcony. Is that floor 5?

If those truly are woods view rooms then I would love one of those, too. It looks to good to be true, though.

Yes, the fifth floor in the north wing near Otter Pond has open balconies.

Yes, kids are allowed.

When my son was little we watched a few World Series games there.

No age limit, everyone is welcome.

It does look too good to be true

Thanks for the open balcony information. Since I'm travelling with a family group requiring 3 rooms, I want to leave a fair amount of flexibility in my room requests. But I do like the open balconies and higher floors.

A few days back Raya and WDWKOOK were discussing these rooms as well. Looking at the satellite image they pretty much just look out towards trees that are between the lodge and the boat dock. Boat horn noise might be a bit of an issue, and they would have the longest hallway walk, but they do seem like nice rooms. They exist on all six floors, and have two regular rooms between the deluxe rooms on the corners. The same rooms on the South wing have a better view, but are listed as Courtyard view.

Was fortunate to stay in one of the end rooms in 2002. Would love to be placed in one of them in September as I have a woods view ressie. My prior stays I've always booked standard and only our first trip in 1998 we didn't get upgraded. But right now I'm just ready to go!

Our first stay at WL CL is in November and I am to trying figure out our view. We are booked standard with a queen bed and bunk beds. What view do we have? How far are the farthest rooms from the lounge? I am trying to figure out requests and don't want to be far from the lounge with a 2 year old. I heard north side woods view might give us a view of the castle? I would love that! Any CL room tips would be really appreciated! Thanks!

FYI, in the Dining Reviews there is a thread "Coming Live to you..." by jabead that had 4 current WL guests reporting. They are doing dining reviews of WL restaurants as well as others through out WDW. Lots of great food and pics, just go back a few days worth.

Hi!

My family and I will be staying at the WL in Oct, yay

This will be our 1st time, and I've booked a Courtyard View. I have no idea what to request room wise. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Dearest Most Wonderful WDWKOOK,
Thank-you SO MUCH for your guidelines (notice I use the term "guidelines"), on tipping, in response to my questions on Friday. I now feel so much better prepared. Sorry for the delay in responding to your response, but we were having a whole house contents tag sale last weekend, as we're planning on moving, so I'm trying to fit in moving from NY to Fla. while planning our Feb. WL trip(while also planning our F & W 5k in Nov, incl. an 11/10 dinner @AP).

DH & I will be driving up to WDW,so we will have our car to use when necessary. During the course of our weeks stay, we'll be dining in every park, including a KTTK Tour @8:30am,Crystal Palace, Boma and Trails End also @8:30am. Would it be to our advantage to drive to MK or AKL instead of taking a bus or boat, due to time constraints? I'm assuming we'll be walking to FW for our TE breakfast.......
