Yes, for us 35% beats free dining. (It's just me, hubby, and the puppy Maggie - and no LOL she isn't coming. I know families with kids often do better with FD because there are more people).

I think she meant sadly bec they don't have offers yet for 2015. We were supposed to go in April before we moved our trip to Nov and there is no way we could have booked another BB for 2014.

Thanks,i figured the boat is better, even if it were to be about the same time or a couple minutes longer, it beats sitting on a bus, IMO. Although we're only going to be doing EP and MK on this trip so maybe we can avoid busses altogether......aside from DME.

That's exactly what I meant! We will be going back in October for our BB stay, and if there aren't "new" BB offers out by then, then that means we won't be able to take advantage of another BB before the end of 2014. Sorry I wasn't very clear! I'm VERY happy with a 35% discount!!!

We are considering WL for our December 2014 visit. I know it's one of the most beautiful resorts during the holidays, but how are the overall crowd levels after dec 12? I want to avoid the pop warner crowds, but is there time to visit before the big holiday crowds arrive?

You won't have to worry about Pop Warner crowds staying at WL. They usually stay at an All Star and a moderate.

Thank you so much! Great offer-hope I can use it! We travel this July/August and are hoping for BB dates extending into 2015 for our next trip. Did you also have the option to choose free dining over the room discount? With our son turning 10 that will be a big jump for us!

Our WL Christmas stay was during Pop (12/5 and after?). Check my signature. Anyway, at WL we had no issues. Only saw Pop kids while we were at AK one day. I wouldn't be concerned.

Of course, those of you who've already stayed there before knew that would probably happen! We arrived Friday afternoon - check-in was a breeze, since we'd already completed the online check-in. We had booked a woods view room and requested a high floor prior to check-in. We were put in room 6106 - 6th floor, across the hall from ice/vending, and around the corner from the elevators. Our view was trees and some of the villas - pretty much what we expected. The staff was wonderful and made us feel right at home. We had breakfast at WCC twice - MT was our server both mornings, and we absolutely loved her! We were celebrating our son's 15th birthday, and she was a riot with him! The food was good, and we will definitely go again and request to be seated in her section. DH and I had dinner at Artist Point last night - just the two of us - and it was, by far, the best meal we've had at WDW to date. Our server, Keith, was exceptional - really spent a lot of time with DH and the Scotch and Bourbon selections. They bonded quite well. We will definitely return, and we will ask for Keith again, too. Just wonderful! We only spent about an hour at the pool, but we really enjoyed it. The only "complaint" I have is that there weren't enough chairs available. We were only there to swim for a short time, so it all worked out fine - but if we'd have wanted to spend more time there, that would have been mildly frustrating. Not a big deal in the big picture, though! We loved WL so much that we booked another stay in October with the BB offer! We will be staying in a 1Q/BB with a courtyard view, and I can't wait!!! So, would you please add us to the list again? October 24-26, 2014!
I'll be there in August! It's our first time @ a deluxe hotel! We have a woods view as well! I've been hearing so many great things about WL! They say Whispering Canyon was very good too! My boys 14 & 12 will love the pool! I'll make sure to get there early for chairs! I'm so excited!

I can't imagine them not being out by then for 2015...they were out when we stay in Nov for the following year. We're in the same boat.

Yesterday was (finally) our 180 day mark! Being that we wanted to try lots of F&W foods + enjoy the club level snacks, we only booked our favorite dinner - Ohana on Halloween night. Happy to have that booked!

We're still far away but there's something about that 180 day mark that makes you feel just a little more excited for the trip!!

Online Check-In ?

If you do online check-in ahead of time, do you get your room number at that time or is that something only given when you arrive at the resort? I didn't know if they already knew your # if you would get it then...
