...if the Character breakfast buses are still running, you can just catch one right to MK!! We were told by a CM at CBR that they don't start untill 7:30, but, lo and behold, one was at the bus stop at 7AM SHARP!!

Question on the boat/ferry from WL to MK...


Does it ALWAYS stop at FW first? Or does it go just to MK from WL? Is there a "Local"(stopping at FW) or an "express" (going directly to MK?)? Is there a certain schedule?


Thanks!

I'm back from the Lodge. I had a nice stay, but it could have been better. Our mousekeeping was not great at all, and the room was dirty. The very first room I had was horrible. The whole carpet was wet!! SO they moved us to 6149. It had a great view of everything, and it was a courtyard view (they upgraded us). This room was much better, but far from the food and the bus stops. The view was beautiful, and the rooms really were lovely. It was the little things that made the room unpleasant. Long story short, we transfered over to the Contemporary Resort, and the rest of our trip was fine.

Transportation was horrible. I hated travelling to Fort Wilderness. They were really crowded, and made the trip longer for those at the lodge. They really do need (FW) their own transportation.

I think a lot depends on the time of day. Early in the morning, we have caught the boat and went directly to MK from WL and then other times of the day we have done both, go directly to MK and go to FW first.

Deluxe Room

All of the Deluxe Rooms are on the corners. We stayed in room 4166. We were in the South Wing, had 1 balcony that was right on Bay Lake, the other had a great view of the geyser and the fireworks from MK. Room was quite a hike from the lobby, but well worth it.

Pool/MNSSHP transport questions

Does the main WL pool have zero entry? I thought I read somewhere that it was, but can't find it now.

We have tickets for MNSSHP (the Halloween party at MK) on Sunday, Oct. 26. Can I plan on the boats running later to get back to the resort?

Thanks!

The last woods view room I had was over the Cubs Den, overlooking the WLV and the pathway to the buses. It was a corner room, very pretty and quiet. Since Fireworks are only Saturday nights in October and we will pretty much miss them, should I forgo trying to get a tiny Castle/Fireworks view?

Any nice Woods view rooms to recommend? No bunkbeds.

Anyone ever had a standard room on the North side? How are the views? Are there standard rooms on the 6th floor? Sorry, I can't remember all this from the other thread, I am sure it was answered there. Oh, and if there are rooms on 6th floor, can you see the MK?

I had a standard view room on the north side a few years ago. I think it was on the 5th floor. At the time, we could see the fireworks in the sky at night, but from what I hear, the trees have grown some and the view is limited. The view down below is parking and loading zone(also the smokehouse).

We're back from our fabulous stay at the WL. No one everyone loves that place. It was breath taking! We ended up upgrading our reservation on the 4th day so that we didn't have to leave the HM suite. Got it for $200 a night since we paid $400 a night for the first three nights. Not bad in my opinion. I loved being able to use the room key to get us up to the 7th floor. Everyone in the elevator was so curious as to why we were special. teheheheh. And we had a perfect view of the MK fireworks show from our balcony.

Off to do some shopping for new house stuff. ta for now!
