Update: we went back to the front dek this morning and asked again. They asked if it was medical purpose and we said no but they did credit us the $15 a night. Quick and easy, thanks!

I would definitely call the Resort. Check this thread out, it has the phone numbers to different resorts. Good Luck

I have probably a very silly question.. Don't ask why but every time I hear "lake view" I picture far toward the backs of the buildings lol... Are there lake view rooms that are close enough to the main hall???

The one time I stayed on floor 3 in the 90's I tended to use the stairs as it was quicker than waiting for the elevators.
Thx. That helps. I will probably see when I check in if I can get 4th floor near the end by stairs.

Yes. Buildings 3, 4, 5, and 6 all have rooms where the window faces Hourglass Lake, and all these buildings are considered close to Classic Hall.

Building 3 is a 50's building, 4 and 5 are the two 60's buildings, and 6 is a 70's building.

After looking at the TA site again, I did notice that "beverage cooler" is still listed as an amenity. Took a picture of the page to take on my trip in two weeks.

I would definitely request 1st floor.

What time do you try to leave the resort by for a 9:00 rope drop?

I'm usually at the Bus stop around 8:15. That usually gets me there by 8:45 and not at the back of the line to get in.

I would get to the bus stop by 8am at the latest. We got there at 8am last year and were late to our PL appointments for 9:10am. A bus didn't come until 8:40, but that was very unusual. That is the only time we have ever waited more than 20 minutes for a bus in all of our years at POP.

I know, I know, laundry on vacation but with being there 12 days, I have no choice. The walk to the buses doesn't bother us. My husband usually gets coffee in the am so the walk will be nice for him. Thanks for any input.

I think my question got overlooked. Any ideas or opinions?
