First off i wanted to say that this is a great thread, everyone is so helpful. We are booked for a stay at WL from 12th to 17th Dec, in a woods view room. My two DS 11 and 13, want to have a room with a patio, they saw them on the room photos, as we live in a condo with a balcony and they want to be able to walk outside onto the grass to run around. What area of WL would be best for this type of room? Thanks in advance.

Ask for the first floor if you want a patio. The first floor woods view rooms appear to be in the north wing. A first floor courtyard view room would face either the inner courtyard or the quiet pool on the villas side.

I was looking at room view pictures and saw the first floor woods view rooms with their patios in the north wing. It looks really serene over there and am tempted to request it for our trip in December.

On the WDW web site where they have the photos of the different types of rooms. The woods view one is actually a patio shot. I also googled it.

A google search of WDW WL woods view with patio will bring up some pics of the old rooms prior to rehab. There are some taken from the room looking out and some from the grass area looking at the patio.

I'm so glad this thread shows the refurbished rooms, I like them much better!!!

Would you say courtyard 4th floor is a good location? Do you have a view of Bay Lake from the courtyard view rooms?

I just noticed we aren't listed on page 1. We are WL CL Aug 30 thru Sept 2. Our first night is off site over by Sea World, we leave to drive down on Aug 29 after my husband gets home from work.

We are 14 days away, I am so excited. It's all we can talk about now.

Yes, you should have a view of Bay Lake from the INNER courtyard rooms. The others face more towards the villas and likely will have a more obstructed view of the lake.

In general the lake view gets better with higher floors. Fourth floor is nice because it is the first floor that is continuous between the North and South wings, and also it has some "Bear Face" rooms which are courtyard view and open to the lobby. We think that's an awesome combination, and they are only on the 4th and 5th floors.

I have a room booked for Dec at the WL club level. Does any one know what rooms have 2 queen beds. We don't want woods view but inner courtyard close to the building. When I booked that requested two queen beds not one queen bed & bunk beds.

Want to be close to lounge but not that close if you know what I mean. I looked at the page that has room location but hard to see the numbers etc. So if anyone has stayed club level, inner court yard over the rock falls . I know confusing. I have stayed here many times but since they went to more rooms with one queen & bunk beds. I am at a loss lol. Ty

Ok...I don't want anyone to get crazy but, I was just reading over in the Dining Reviews a thread that is "Coming to you live..." Now sit down...scanne is at WL right now staying CL and she posted that last nights offerings at OFC was not only the Apple Cobbler but the Berry as well!

In all our years, I am ashamed to say, I have never tried any of the cobbler. We are rarely back from the parks to eat at OFC. But, this year, I will try to sample all.

Room Maps!

This is an awesome summary of the WL, thanks! I particularly love the room map; I know exactly which room to ask for now.
When we checked into WL in 2005, the CM remembered us from 2004 and upgraded us to WV 4001. So want to stay in that room again! November will be our 15th visit to the Food & Wine Fest, 10th stay at WL!

Ok, so I have decided to book a bunk bed room instead of going CL.

I know I have read somewhere on the thread which floors have open balconies, closed balconies, and do 1st floor have a patio?

I am going to request North Wing (to be close to food and boat), but am torn between booking woods view and courtyard view. Ultimately, I think it would be nice to have a good lake view with an "open" balcony. Anything else is a bonus.

Where would that be, WL gurus?

(Is that how you spell guru )
