Do you remember what floor you were on?

Thanks for the update!

Yippie for your ME tags! I just received a UPS MagicBandapalooza due to 3 room-only reservations for 8 nights, (I like to maximize discounts).

I have given my room requests already in the past with the WL-IPO and sent IPO my request again today. I know rooms are not a guarantee, but the CSR???
Ooooo, I hope you get Casitas 9, the Bear Face room that's close to the geyser and El Centro. Is your reservation displaying correctly in your MDX account? You're not communicating with the Business Class IPO, are you?

On the bright side -- less than 2 months until WDW and our first WL stay!
I've had some FP+ issues, too. I left it alone for a week or two, and it was better when I came back to it.

I've never seen nor been able to apply an AP or military rate to a WL Deluxe room, so if they are actually 25% off, I think that's unusual and it might be a sign for you to book

Thumbs down FP+ changes from phone app on day of park visit

I had to make some FP+ changes from my iPhone while we were on our trip. The first one entirely lost that FP+ but the kind CM at the first checkpoint listened to my explanation of the failure I had when using the app and he worked his with the Mickey head to give us green lights which also worked fine at the second checkpoint. He could clearly see that we only had 2 FP+ for that day and perhaps that helped give my explanation credence.

FP+ changes for 2 other days worked fine from the app when I made them.

The Disney website lists a 25% off rate for the spring for courtyard/club level rooms. I just assumed that would include the deluxe rooms too. Does anyone know this for sure?

The discounts aren't out yet for my dates, but I am hoping for some kind of discount available for deluxe rooms or we may have to rethink our reservations again

Oh, in that case, it most likely won't be included. Unfortunately, I've never been able to apply a discount to a Deluxe room at WL. Everything else is always available (except the two suites). However, that wouldn't stop me from continuing to ask if it's available. You never know, it might someday be discounted. If you need more room, have you considered a villa at VWL? You can apply discounts to them.

10 DAYS and me and my family will be at our very first trip to WDW and CHECK IN AT THE LODGE.... butterflies in my tummy!!!!!

Question - our first day we have early ADR at Tusker House at 8:30.
1) Will I be able to pick up my PP+ card there??? I have had mixed answers on this and I really need to have it for breakfast photos...DOES ANYONE KNOW a 100% answer to this?
2) Is the gift shop where the pp+ is located at at Animal Kingdom open before the park?

OH MY STARS -- I'm sooo excited

Well shoot! I guess I should have looked into that more- I will keep my fingers crossed and I'll check out the villas too, but I know they are in need of refurbs...

Everything is correct other than the room options. My Disney account shows the WL, my email correspondence is with the WL IPO and my Disney packet including my luggage tags are all for the WL. I have no idea why it showed that on the website. I emailed IPO today and they responded that they have noted my room request. I should be set to go, but then you just never know.

WDWKOOK, I just looked at the exclusions to the discount, and it did not list that the deluxe rooms were excluded, so I'm hoping it is the same for the summer discounts!

Anywho, I am sooo excited to have changed our ressies to the WL
There will be 9 of us in two rooms and this will be my 3 nieces' first trip to the World! My kids and I have always wanted to stay at the Lodge
Now to change my ticker...

All Disney Vacation Club members staying at a Walt Disney World resort -- on a reservation booked using either points or cash -- can access the Top of the World Lounge in Bay Lake Tower nightly through December 29, 2014. The perk extends to members and others in their traveling party. At least one member must accompany the group and provide a Key to the World card or blue Disney Vacation Club member ID card to gain entrance. Walt Disney World transportation must be used to reach Bay Lake Tower. Parking is only permitted to guests staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort or Bay Lake Tower. Lounge access is not available on select blockout dates which currently includes December 30-31, 2013, and July 3-4, 2014. Top of the World Lounge features a full bar, limited menu of appetizers and seating for approximately 77 guests. An outdoor deck is also available to view the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. Lounge access and seating are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission begins at approximately 5:00pm nightly.

We'll be there on Saturday and I will try to get some pictures. I missed the Mercantile on our last trip so it is on my To Do list this time.
