Well, I'm off all. I probably won't post anymore here until I come back from my trip. Send prayers our way. If I find time, I might post from the WL. Thanks for all the great advice. WL, here I come!!!

View on the show

The view they showed on the Travel channel show from the deluxe room is exactly the same view we had except I think we were up one floor.

The view they showed was looking out over the Villas pool and adjacent woods.

Wow deja vue all over again!

Lodge view?

I went to the disneyworld.com site today and for the dates I'm looking at in late October it shows the choices of "lodge view" and "courtyard view". When I click on the button that explains the views, it pops up a window with descriptions of "woods view" and "courtyard view". I remember a couple of days ago, someone said they called WDTC and asked to book a "standard view" at WL and the CM said there was no "standard view". I'm wondering if they've lumped "standard" and "woods" together to make "lodge" and if I book "lodge" I'm chancing getting a view of the parking lot, etc.

What do you think?

I would definitely....

...call again. There certainly ARE standard rooms, usually located around the lobby, facing VWL (South Wing), and lobby (north wing). You MAY be able to see some trees (which, technically COULD, sorta, be construed as "woodsview"). However, woodsview rooms are further "down" on the "U" of the building. As you are walking down the hallway away from the lobby, the rooms to the right (north wing) and left (south wing) are "pool" view or "court" view. The rooms to the left (north wing) are considered "true" woodsview. Hope this helps....:D

Lodge view... hmm..

Well, it was on the website. I know just a day or two ago, it used to have "woods view" as an option, but today it has been replaced with "lodge view".

Anyway, I'm trying to decide whether to call and find out what concierge would run me on an FTP. I have a reservation for the Poly at the end of November, but the FTP, better weather for swimming and MNSSHP are luring me in to October. Of course the only rooms available at the Poly for the end of October are Lagoon View Concierge and that is way out of my league.

It seems like some people don't like courtyard view... are they really noisy or is there some other problem?

BCVNovember...

...I personally have stayed in a court/pool view room, and, when the balcony door is closed, it is pretty quiet. However, I was directly "next" to the waterfalls, and I thought that the "rushing water" sound was relaxing and almost hypnotic. Maybe THAT sound would bother some guests. I should state that I was on the sixth floor, so "people sounds" were not a concern. Perhaps there is more noise if you are staying in a room adjacent to the actual pool area....if you really want a court view, request inner court (as opposed to outer court-which is further down on the "U").

Best Courtyard or Woods View

The rooms facing the Villas "quiet" pool are also "courtyard" and are very quiet rooms.

I would highly recommend this view if you wanted courtyard or woods view as it affords both. In my opinion the only better view would be an end room overlooking Bay Lake.

I think the fact that Disney choose this view to appear on the Travel Channel feature of the WL supports this conclusion.

To get it you would ask for the south east wing overlooking the Villas or the villas pool.

When I faxed in my requests I asked for the "best view possible" and I think they really gave it to me!
