The problem stems from the fact that the band itself cannot prioritize the tickets attached to it. What is happening is that people are trying to use their bands to enter MNSSHP, but their regular park passes get dinged for one day's admission instead. Just because your MNSSHP tickets are showing on MDE does not necessarily mean they are loaded onto your MB. There is also the fact that if you purchase MNSSHP tix online, they automatically link to your MDE account. My suggestion is this - use your MNSSHP hard tix to enter the party, DO NOT scan your bands (or even get them close to the scanner). Once you are safely inside, feel free to use your MB for meals, purchases, etc. Do that and you should have a trouble free party! Have a great time! My suggestion is this.

Thank you for posting your pictures. I really enjoyed them.

My DH and I can't wait to get back there again. I'm hoping that we get a chance to spend some time on this balcony.

Hello WL folks I asked this question awhile back and did not get a response so I will try it again....I know it has been asked before but I can not find it (I'm hoping to book a bounce back vaca next year when I go in December)
1.) Can anyone tell me a GREAT standard room number with nice view and location? (I'm hoping my hubby will go for this is the price is right)

Thanks!!! I'm soo excited I just can't stand it

We'd love a photo





Glad you were able to change rooms and tonight you'll be able to see some of Wishes from your room!

It's a team effort at the OFC and CMs strive to go out of their way to make your stay special. Randy is very hands-on and his love of his job really shows. It's a very special and unique club level.

Since some have been asking, is the coffee machine in the lounge still Nescafe or is it now Joffery's?
Still the Nescafé machine. By the way, Randy says hi.

I was still planning on bringing the actual ticket.. I have AP's that are good for another 10 months.. So I don't think that should interfere.. But I always carry those cards too

Here may help you.. Honestly, I haven't stayed in a standard room in years.. I have always been upgraded.. So maybe ask for a location "near" a room you like, and hope for pixie dust

As many other guests with a standard room booked we were afraid to get one of the south-wing-standard views.

When walking to our room, we were able to see the balconies of these rooms as well as the view-blocking roof peaks from the hallway.

Some of these rooms probably provide the worst views on Disney property. All you can see is a roof. Trees in far distance.

When staying at WL again, then by booking woods our courtyard view. The risk of getting one of these rooms is too high.

Most of the balconies there had towels etc. on the chairs. I felt a little bad for those people because I guess most of them did not expect this "no-view". I do not understand why this is considered as standard, they should be bookable for less $$$

The scary views from the standard view rooms were enough to make me book woods view, too.

Our daughter had a perfect view of the castle and fireworks from room 6010, but it wasn't a bunk bed room. We had a really good view, too, although it was partially obscured by one tree branch. It was room 6018 and had two queens. But I'm pretty sure that someone reported that they had a bunk bed room in one of the rooms in between our two rooms, like maybe room 6014, 6012, or 6016. The closer to room 6010 you get, the better the view.

Well we did it. We spilled the beans.
This trip was set to be a surprise, but my kids were asking..sometimes begging for us to book a trip EVERY day. We were all set to go in August and cancelled to bring our new puppy home. So I got the great idea to surprise them with this trip. It was becoming more and more apparent that while a surprise would have been exciting, the kids were missing out by not being able to be excited and anticipate the trip. Last week my 16 year old sent me a text with a list of 30 things she would give up for Disney (one of which was her brother).
Today, my 9 year old was actually in tears saying "I don't even care if it's a year away, or two years away!! I just want to know we can go again one day."

So it was time. We sat them down and said "December 13th.. what is that day?"

Dd said "2 months after Thanksgiving". Ds said "12 days before Christmas".
We then said "Nope.. it's the day you leave for your trip to Disney World."

They FLIPPED OUT. Dancing, cheering, hugs and teary eyes!!!
We then discussed all the details and looked at all of the Wilderness Lodge pictures in the photo thread. They are SO excited.

They are both glad we told them. So it's official..I can't keep a secret to save my life, but I have 2 ecstatic children!!! 75 days to go!!!!
