I think the only buildings you would want to not be in for your mom's sake, would be Conch Key or Boca Chica as they would be the furthest away.

Check out the map linked below -- It will illustrate where the buildings are in relation to the Monorail. Keep in mind that the monorail is on the second level of the main building so you would need to take the elevator down.

Elevators are fine, stairs would be a different story entirely!

Thanks for the quick response!

Those pics are just beautiful! Thanks for posting I REALLY hope the new GF refurb reflects the same feel as the VGF room décor.

Hi just wondering if anyone knows if the lodge tower rooms in SL are far from the elevator/lounge. Thanks so much for any info!

Booked 7/11-7/14!! Not sure if it will happen, but for now, there's a slight chance! :-)

I know that RPC refurb is planned for July. Went to book as soon as we came back last July for this July and there were no rooms available. So my thinking is that is when the refurb is going to take place in the main building. If you try to book SL for June, there are no rooms available. Tried this last July as well. Gets me to thinking that June is when the SL rooms will be done.

We have booked SL for this July. It will be nice to stay in a freshly done room!

We were just there!

The elevator is on one end of the building and LT rooms are just past the middle.
It didn't feel too far.
