Talking Just Wanted to See

Morning,
Don't have any really grand info to impart....just knew that my countdown clock had finally made it past the 200 mark and I just wanted to see it.
Oh wait, I do have a little info, I did get my modified confirmation last week and our WL concierge room for Jan 1-8 is 362.50 per night.

Smile Cant't Wait!

We recently booked the WL due to the FTP. Too good a deal to pass up. Haven't been in 7 years - since our honeymoon! It truly is a beautiful and relaxing resort.

One question. I booked a Lodge View room with bunk beds. Do you think my dd's are too little for the bunkbeds. My oldest is 4 and youngest will be 2 1/2.

I think they will be fine but DH is concerned with safety. I like the idea of bunk beds b/c it might make the room seem bigger, but I don't want to jeopardize dd's safety. What do you guys think?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Hello WL devotees. Just got back from a quick 3 day trip with DD (6/9-6/11/03). The lodge of course was amazing. They let us have a late check out (1pm) and our woods view was of some thin trees and the too the left it looked like the edge of the entrance to the lodge and to the right the corner of the lodge. That actually was no big deal. The only difference I saw was on this trip we were sharing busses with FW (the Epcot bus and I think it was the MGM bus went to the Poly and then on to the studios). I think this changes fairly often. The service at the shop and restaurants was as usual outstanding. My DH was so jealous that his "No WDW next year" is quickly waining. We were in room 4084. I think that is all the updates.

Bunks

Katiebug,
The top bunk already has rails and my DD4 slept up there last year and had a blast. And as Disneykid said, you can get rails for the bottom if needed. Your kids will love them. I hope to have another det in a couple weeks.

Even though I have been to the WL twice I cannot remember something about the boat ride to MK.

When you get off the boat you go directly to the main entrance of MK, you dont have to take a monorail or tram right? I belive that is correct, because I remember I hated driving to MK because after parking you had to take a tram and then the monorail and it was a hastle.

My main question is that we have a PS at 1900 Park Fare for dinner. I would like to take the WL boat to MK and then the monorail over to the Grand Floridian. Is there an entrance for the monorail that would take you to GF near where the WL boat let's you off at in MK??

Otherwise we would have to drive to GF then drive to MK for the remainder of the evening, then drive back to WL. I would rather just do the boat...much more relaxing!

Sorry if this is confusing!!
