On a lighter note - they were still showing the older bounce back in our room for free food. I called and they were more than happy to help me book two room discount bounce backs for 2014.

We shall be back here at the WL on 4/20 - 4/26 and then again 11/9 - 11/15 !! And we are going back to Club Level !!! Yay!!!
What is the bb room discount?

Bounce back discount. It's usually in the room when you check in. Or in the paperwork they give you when you check in.

Thanks, Kook! It was.

It's official....I've started seriously packing now. Carry on's are set up by person. Outfits are being set up by day.

AND, I decided that we didn't want to come back to an undecorated house and so we have up all of out outside lights so far!

14 days; a wedding, a surprise birthday party, 2 Thanksgiving dinners (one 3 hours away), family home from overseas, packing for WDW....ain't no big thing!

I've been trying to follow the bounce back discussions because we want to book a bb when we are at the WL. From what I understand, the dates aren't posted yet, but CM's can tell you the available dates if you call. Here is what someone posted in one of the threads:

However, thanks to DisBoard I knew to ask about the new offer. I didn't ask about specific resorts, sorry. I was told in general it's 30% off moderates and 35% off deluxe. Here are the dates: 1/3-1/8, 1/12-1/16, 1/20-2/13, 2/17-3/1, 3/6-4/12, 4/20-5/22, 7/28-8/2, 8/17-10/4, 10/17-11/6, 11/9-11/21 and 12/21-12/23. I may call tomorrow to get more resort details. I'll post if I find any more information.

Wow.. you are putting me to shame. We have 3.5 weeks to go and I just started thinking about making a packing list on the weekend. However, I said to one of the kids tonight "We only have 3 more weekends until Disney!" and then quickly realized that is NOT a lot of time. There's no time for extra things during the week with work/school/homework/practices/lessons etc. So that's 3 weekends to finish the Christmas shopping and wrap it all, decorate, make the packing lists, PACK, and do the 1000 things that need to be done on weekends.

I have a feeling I'll be standing in the lobby of the Lodge before I know it

Artist Point current menu

Does anyone know which website shows the current menu for AP. I have a reservation for 12/4 and would really like to check it out.

By the way, when we went to AP in September, it was excellent. We really liked it. A lot more than our first try there 4 or 5 years ago.

I've been working on the 2014 thread. I will finish it this week and post the link to it here when it's up

I removed it from the activities list because it's more of a special occasion event and not like Flag Family that is a daily event. You can ask the front desk at check-in or a concierge for more information/availability.

Samuel is a CL CM and he is very nice. Glad you enjoyed the show!

Keys to Kingdom tour and Backstage safari have been booked! Still need to book Dolphins in Depth and DiveQuest.

Oh and added another day at the parks.

Love looking at our itinerary and keep bugging my DH on what we want to do and when lol especially on our 'down' days which will be funfilled at WL (he really wants to do a fishing excursion)
Sounds great. Can you squeeze Trail's End in there?

We checked in on the 30th and they had the room ready for us at 8am!! I was excited when I learned our room was on the 4th floor since I requested a lobby room but when we got upstairs I realized we didn't get our requested room because we were upgraded to a courtyard room just around the corner from the lobby so I figured it was the best of both worlds!!! The room was spotless and a mickey towel animal greeted us. We never waited longer than 10 minutes for a boat or bus and the lobby never appeared crowded. We got new towel animals almost everyday except 2 days in the middle. I had made tip envelopes for mousekeeping and they took them everyday except the 2 days in the middle loved the pool in the evening with the geyser and water pageant the distance. I guess there were 2 things I didn't care for #1 quick service food selection and #2 not staying longer!! Now on to plan the next trip and since it will be closer to December the wilderness lodge would be perfect!!!
Thanks for reporting about your trip and now it's time to plan another one

to the DIS and the WL/VWL thread! Of course you're in the right place and feel free to post any questions you might have. The first two pages have a lot of information to help you plan your trip. You're going to love WL! Many transportation options and FW is right next door. Lots to see and do close-by and the resort is beautiful. Happy planning and let us know if more questions come up.

Start packing…at least in your mind. What an exciting trip for DD. Take lots of pictures and I'll add you to the LL.

What I love about the WL: everything is under one roof, so no walks in the rain for morning coffee or snacks; the lobby is stunning and you will never forget the first time you see it; in spite of the lobby size, the vibe is cozy and warm, and relaxing; I love walking along the beach ( small, but sufficient) after getting a drink at the poolside bar, and watching the sunset; the sound of the crickets at night; the mesquite smell in the air from the smokehouse and restaurants; The Music! ( I should have put that first); the little bridge in the lobby with the flowing water; the cozy spots throughout the resort to just sit and relax; I love the light fixtures! ( especially the owl, which is my icon); and finally, the theming surrounds you and when you come back from a dizzying day/evening at the parks, it really feels like you are a world away from the intensity the minute you step off the boat or the bus. ( the boat to MK is another plus!) Happy planning!!
Great post

If we weren't so lazy, we would actually ask about switching to a regular room, but that would mean packing up our stuff.

Either way, we are here at the WL and that in itself is amazing.
I understand, but at least you tried it. If you feel a burst of energy, you could still ask to move to WL, even CL. I've done some last minute resort changes and never regretted them.

Just so everyone knows, all of the WL menus are hyperlinked in the DINING section on the first page.

Yes, and the menu can also vary greatly on holidays such as T'giving and Christmas. HERE is the link to the restaurants with special Christmas menus.
