I was pretty sure page one had this information so a took a look and...


Nightly free CAMPFIRE MARSHMALLOW ROAST from 7:30 - 8:30. Marshmallow and stick provided.

BB-rooms... any list?

Just wondering if anyone has seen a list of which rooms are Bunk Beds? Are they scattered about the various room categories?

Also, are there any recommendations on request for a better BB-Woods room? I was just going to ask for higher floor but didn't know if it was worth it to ask 'near elevator' or anything like that. TIA!

I believe they are scattered. You can see where they are using this "room finder" from touringplans.com: http://touringplans.com/hotel_maps/d...lderness-lodge

I am actually slightly disappointed about the lack of freezers, since we'll be bringing lunch on the plane and will have a cold pack with us. But such is life... I'll have a ton of ziplocks handy and hopefully the ice machine won't be too far from our room.

In other news... look what came yesterday! I'm pink, DS4 is blue and DH is green!

Thanks for posting the picture of your MB's. I was debating whether to choose pink or blue. Both look good, but I'm glad I switched to pink.

My iPhone 4 generally takes mediocre photos indoors (my iPhone 5S will arrive before our trip!) but it did pretty much capture the color. It's not a hot pink or a baby pink, it's a pretty nice pink. Of course I'd have preferred purple...

Edited to add that once I checked in my magic bands were available for personalization!!
