Plumb forgot to take a picture, but I will in August, unless you take one sooner. The AP entrees served at TL are not the same as the AP entrees served at AP, these were some of the items last month:

Scallops

Salmon Silverbay. Not cedar plank, but DH loved it. - $35

Beef Tenderloin. We split this and it was perfect. - $43

Chicken. I had this and I believe it was a small Cornish Game Hen cut into several pieces - $29

A vegetarian dish. I had this, but I can't recall the name and on my receipt it only says "Vegetarian" - $28

A mixed grill dish with a few meats.




Yay for adding a night! Hope to make some headway on the TR this afternoon.



More CL nights is fantastic and you won't regret it.


Looks like you've discovered our little secret. Congratulations on re-booking!



There isn't a map of WL room types/locations for public consumption. The bunks are scattered throughout the resort. I hope you have a wonderful first stay at WL!
kook!. Do we finally have overlapping trips???? We arrive 8/16 and are down until the 26th!!!

Hello everyone. I've been reading the forums with great interest, especially this thread. My husband and I have been to Disney numerous times, but have always stayed value. This most likely will be our last trip for quite a while and a bit of a splurge and surprise for my husband. He believes we'll be staying all 4 nights at Pop, but in fact we will be spending the last 2 nights at WL CL. He's always wanted to do CL, but with taking our family (Mom, kids etc..) with us every time, financially it was a no go. This time just the two of us. So, finally this: Please give me the top 5 hints/thoughts on CL and how to get the most out of this experience! Room requests? Etc.... Thanks in advance!! We are going check in at WL on March 18th and are not flying home until 8p.m. on the 20th! No parks while we are at the lodge, just relaxing and watching my husband smile!

Hi all! We are newcomers to the Lodge, as we have never stayed there before! We are now looking to book a 2BR Villa for our upcoming trip. I know this thread is full of so much information, that I LOVE, however, I started getting a little too overwhelmed and decided to just post and ask this quick question!

Do the 2BR Villa's have access to a bathroom from the Living Room without having to go through one of the bedrooms?

Thank you!! Looking forward to possibly being part of the Wilderness Lodge lovers!!!

Yes, you can access the bathroom without going through the master bedroom. The layout for the bathroom/bedroom is a bit strange. If you look at this diagram of the 2BR Villa you can see that the door to the bathroom is exactly opposite the sink. There is a diagonal line representing the door. There is also a diagonal line representing the door to the master bedroom. You can also access the bathroom through the master bedroom. There are a lot of doors right there.



This diagram might show the bathroom door a little better.

Well, our 2/2 arrival is getting closer. First timers with WL AND CL !!!
So we're officially into "overthinking " mode. Been going over and over the first page,just trying to feel as familiar and comfortable with all the info as possible.
So, first question - I saw a reference to requesting a rooftop view of Wishes Fireworks. Has anyone ever done that???? Is it still possible to make such a request?

Second question - Taking into account that it always comes down to personal preference, I'm only now becoming aware of Deluxe rooms also being CL. I saw one pic where a 6th floor deluxe room had the same exact beautiful view as #7127(room must be just underneath it). How much more money is a Deluxe room and is that bigger room worth it?? We're heavy duty balcony sitters, unless it's really cold or rainy. Weather, the first week of February, can be a crap shoot, going either way. Bad weather makes a bigger room more inviting, where DH & I can find our own reading spots. But, how inconvenient is it to have to take an elevator up one floor to visit the lounge? Is it that big a deal?
You see, officially overthinking......waaaaay toooooo excited!!!!

Thanks! We agree. Problem is staying CL spoils us and we miss it when we're back staying on our DVC points. (Oh, what a problem to have! )

Thanks woodnymph for posting those floorplans and explaining the bathroom access from the living room. We will have a 5th person with us and it is nice to know he will not have to tiptoe past sleeping couples to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. ( or during our afternoon naps) Is this true of the lock-offs too or just the dedicated? (I requested dedicated, but you never know)
I will overlap with the mid-August people too, but only by a day.
Welcome to all the WL newbies!!

This may come as a shock, but I don't mind getting a picture of anything WL related It's very possible that I'll snap a few (1000) shots in June....

Welcome to all the WL newbies!!
Yes, this is true whether you have a dedicated studio or a lock off. The bathroom configuration in the villa doesn't change. It is the same whether you have a 1 BR villa, 2BR with a lock off, or a 2BR with a dedicated studio. The only thing that really changes is the placement of the doors of the studio. Here is a diagram of a studio. You'll see that the biggest difference is that there is a door into the hallway from the lock off while the door for the studio in a dedicated two BR villa is an interior door.



We have only stayed in the 2BR villas at the BCV. The door for that dedicated studio opens into the vestibule of the villa, which is a lot more convenient then the door in the WLV. I'm not sure why they built it that way.

We are going to be staying at WL for the first time starting this Friday. I cannot wait. We went to AKL last year and loved it. It going to be nice to be closer to MK this time though! This trip is a surprise for my six year old son. I am picking up early from school and driving him to disney (6 hours for us). I am just telling home that we are going on a surprise trip. I think he will figure out once we start passing highway signs. Eek. I can't wait!
