We have been wanting to stay at VWL for a while now, but there never seemed to be any availability for our dates....we all can't wait for May to come .
Congrats!

2. facing the villas - we had one of these rooms when we were there a couple of weeks ago - room 3014. It faces mostly woods and the side view of the villas. This section was very convenient to the lobby and buses. Here is a link to my room view pictures.

3. north wing facing the Contemporary - These rooms are close to the elevator to Roaring Forks and many of them have a partial view of the high fireworks.
Thank you! Super helpful!

I didn't even think about that and it most certainly seems the least amount of hassle since the boat docks are all is n close proximity

Thank you!

Youre welcome! Sometimes you need to ride the monorail to ride it.... but I adore the boats!!! And the lines are sometimes more manageable

ON our way tomorrow morning bright and early.

Thanks for all the tips and excitement building. I am not bringing the computer on this trip but will be sure to share photos when I return...Kook will be there at the same time so I am sure she will keep you all up to date.

Wilderness here we come.

OMG! OMG! I can't believe it. We arrived at 11:00 and we are in our favorite room...on CL...for our entire stay! I am beyond excited and so thrilled and grateful for such a magical upgrade Christmas present.

The Lodge is gorgeous and I can't wait to take it all in later. We are on the bus to Akershus. I'll post more later.

When do the Christmas decorations go up at WL? We were previously planning a trip for the first week of December but we might actually go the week before Thanksgiving to be there on my sons actual birthday. We REALLY want to see the lodge decorated though...

That is a fantastic upgrade. That is really nice not to have to move around, too.
