I always see the signs for Zaxby's (chicken, right?), but we've never stopped. Is it more like a big dinner than snack/lunch?

What a wonderful surprise and upgrade! It will be so easy for you to take the boat or bus to MK with mom. Do you think you can keep it a secret?

60% off is amazing and we completely understand. WL will be there for you again.

The tour is very worthwhile! I have many photos of the Lodge Tour HERE in my August WL Pictorial.

I don't know that a 7-year-old would be interested in it for one hour. It may be more interesting to maybe 5th graders and up. It really depends on the patience of the child. There are times when it's very hard to hear the Ranger so younger children might become disinterested. The tour does keep moving from WL to VWL and back to the Territory Lounge, AP and then upstairs. The tour is only one-hour and it does move very quickly, but some children might get bored if they feel disengaged. Make sure you bring your camera or maybe even one for the 7-year-old. I was surprised that I was the only one in our group who took photos and Ranger Jack commented on that.

Will be heading to the lodge for the first time this Xmas- can't wait!

Thanks for a great thread helped me decide to upgrade from COR- we snuck in at the end of free dining and haven't been to a deluxe yet, so with free dining I could justify the move! Woo! I justify a lot of things when it comes to my disney vacations though

Hi everyone! My family is currently booked TPV at the CR the first of Feb and are considering switching to WL CL. My boys (6 & 4) are interested in the bunk bed rooms and lower price is nice too. We have stayed at the WL before but never CL and never in a bunk bed room. I see you can't specifically book a bunk bed room CL so is that just a request? Also is anyone familiar with where the CL bunk rooms are located? During our previous WL stays we had a room in the north wing and could see Wishes in the distance so I'd like to do that again if there are bunk bed rooms on the north side of the hotel on the CL floor.
Thanks in advance for any help!

There definitely are BB rooms in the north wing. We were in room 7042 on CL and had BB's. It was a great room and we had a wonderful "castle view".

Yay! Thank you so much, you may have helped sway me to switch resorts.

You must stop next time! Zaxby's is sooooooooooooo good! It is much much better than Chick-fil-A! They have this yummy Zaxby's sauce to put on the sandwiches or dip the chicken fingers in. We hate fast food overall but love Zaxby's! The fries are really good too!

It is the kind of fast food where you order and then you wait for it for about 5 minutes and then you get it.

One more thing, are the bunk beds by request only? What are the odds of getting them if you request them? Thanks again!

Yes, on CL, it's request only. But we got our request. I think the WL room assignors do what they can to accommodate.

We were told that they would do there best to get us the BB room at CL with our request. I am hopeful, but working with the Cl planers helps me relax and think I will have o problem getting the BB

I kinda skimmed this thread, but because it could be anywhere, I'm going to ask what section do you need to request to get a magic kingdom view? and do you need to already have a woods view??

Check out post #3. It has detailed descriptions, pictures and room numbers for MK views.

We were in 6012, woods view BB room. There are trees so it's not a clear view. I'm not sure any rooms have an unobstructed view of the castle.

Our daughter and her family had room 6010 and it had a perfect, unobstructed view of the castle and a great view of the Wishes fireworks. We had room 6018 and had a partial view of both the castle and the fireworks.

You have the best chance of seeing the castle and fireworks in a woods view room, north side, 6th floor. Some inner courtyard rooms in the south wing on the highest floors near the Bay Lake end of the building might have a view, too.

Hi Everyone. I have a question I was hoping I could get help with. I'm not sure if I should post it here or not. We have dinner reservations at Whispering Canyon on November 20. We were hoping to do Chip N Dale's campfire afterwards and we are also interested in horseback riding, animals, and the sleigh ride. Does anyone know if the Sleigh ride will be opened by then or do they wait until later in the season? Also, what's the easiest way to get to/from the campfire/animals? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
