WOW! Is this a family reunion? Were you in charge of organizing the event or did Disney help? Let us know how it all comes together

Someone has a concerned tone in their voice. Do you picture them all at the pool and bus stop at the same time? Don't worry, it's only 3 nights so you wouldn't even be there, right?

Speaking of comin' 'round... DH mentioned yesterday how he just loves when we turn into Timberline Dr. from World Dr. after going through the MK booths. Then you drive under the big arch and you know that WL is just 'round the bend






You'll be driving under the arch THIS WEEK!!!!!

Awesome! I really want to do this with my family next month since my husband is in the military. I think he'd really appreciate it! How easy was it to set up? I can't wait to hear about your experience!

Shipping luggage to the WL

Has anyone shipped? We usually travel with a single large steamer trunk. It holds everything for both of us, but lacks wheels or a handle. As a result, I prefer to ship. However, last year when we stayed at YC, we had to walk from the front desk all the way to the business office in the conference center (a separate building), wait for the trunk to be brought up, wait for someone to come with a luggage rack, and then walk back to the hotel front desk, and past it to our room.

It wasn't a fun way to stay our Disney stay.

Does the WL have a business center? Can we call from the ME and have our trunk waiting at check in?

I'm sorry to hear about the possible change. But there is still time and discounts could still be announced.

Anyway, an inner courtyard view is gorgeous. You can see Bay Lake and the main pool. But it can be noisy during the afternoon pool party. The outer courtyard looks at the quiet pool over by the villas, not as nice.

The woods view rooms in the north wing can have a partial view of the highest Wishes fireworks. I like that view because I like the woods and don't like pool party noise.

That's ok...I was looking forward to CL but it is what it is I'm still going to Disney and I still get to stay Deluxe so it's all good, right?

I'm so torn.....@ what time is the afternoon pool party? We'll be at the parks most days but we do have a 4 year old so that worries me for any nap time.

What would be most convenient to the lobby area (food court, restaurants, buses, etc)? This is my first stay here.

Thank you for your help!!!

Ditto (though my DH isn't in the military - thank you for your service!)...I'd be really interested in how this is set up. I know you have to ask at check in but with being CL, can the CL CM still set it up?
