Sympathies and PD your way. I lost a very good friend of mine 2 weeks before our trip this past september. It's hard to get your mind focused on fun in the sun but let the Magic of Disney in. You will be just fine.

Ratpack, PD PD PD PD PD PD PD your way....don't forget....you have someone on your side if you need him!

Oh Boy Hot tubs Steam rising, the view of the Lodge, the stars above, the castle beyond.

Ok WL Vets: question: Should I try eating at Artist Point? Just me and my DS 11.

Im still on the fence abour renting a car. Car vs. Disney Trans. Ive always had a car before, so Im a bit anxious.

I wonder how many dis'ers will be at WL while Im there.

Im so excited.

Where some lime green, you never know who you'll meet.

We always opt for Disney transportation, as for me not driving is just part of the vacation

Hi Starz..DD (5) and I have never eaten at AP because it was pretty pricey...for the same price you can eat at the California Grill and see the fireworks.
I drive each year ( because I am a FL Resident) but NEVER see my car the entire time I am there...I would stick with the Mears...they are very good and you will not need a car during your stay ( at least IMO)

Welcome, to the DIS, not sure about AP rates but there may be Florida Resident Specials equal to AP rates or better, be sure to check out both...We residents recieved our rates this Fall before AP rates came out.
Also sympathies to you and your family, hope your up coming trip will be magical.


Starz723
We have eaten at Artist Point, myself and DN when he was appx 11...his now at UF. They had a childrens menu he enjoyed and I had the Plank Roasted Salmon, I had never eaten salmon before and I loved it. Unfortunatly once you have the BEST it's hard for others to measure up. It is expensive but I believe it's worth it.
You will have a beautiful view of Bay Lake and Silver Creek Falls.

DARN the CUBS lost.

annamonte - Loved the reports!

DisneyDmbNut: Sending PD, sorry for your loss.

Now a question... My friend from NC is driving down to visit for 2 days while my DS and I are @ WL. We arrive on a Saturday and have opted not to rent a car. I was just planning on using Mears and the transportation at Disney. Well now that my friend is visiting... it changes all our plans. Argh! I had to change dining reservations and all - the only one I didn't give up was for the following morning at Cindies. He's driving down and staying off property. I haven't seen him for 2 years so we plan on doing EPCOT that Saturday and returning to the lodge for ressies at WC. I'm sure we'll probably sit around after dinner and talk up a storm way into the night. The next day, Sunday, he plans on meeting us back @ WL after DS and I visit the castle and then he wants to drive over to AK. Now my question... how should we handle the car? He will only be there for 2 days and he is staying off property, but he'll be doing the driving and spending a lot of time with us at the lodge catching up on things. Now I'm not trying to sneak him into our room - he has a hotel, so does he just ask for a visitor pass or something at the guard station? Or do I explain my situation to a CM before we arrive? Any suggestions would help.

tardin1964:

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner... but, I was busy watching the Yanks LOSE !!! Anyway, I have finally regained some of my composure!

Rm 5014 was 2 queens, not bunkbeds... but, I think 5016 was the bunkbed room! Hope that helps you out!

Oh, and:
*** LET'S GO YANKEES !!!****

Post What location to ask for.

We have a Courtyard View room book for 12/10-12/15. I have heard that the view could be of the Villas. What should I ask for when faxing in to avoid getting the Villas view and assure a view of the actual courtyard (which I take to be of the pool area). We also need non-smoking rooms and would like a bunk bed if possible. First time at the WL.

Thanks for your help.

Florida Cat: Thanks for that suggestion. I always wanted to prowl around FW. sounds like a winner.

DisneyDmbNut: So sorry for your loss, PD coming your way.

Thank you all for your great suggestions. Guess Ill se how the funds are spreading out, then Ill make a decision for the higher priced restaurant, Artist Point, etc. Living in NYC, Im used to seeing off the wall prices.

Im still havent made a decision about the car rental. I would have to buy the car insurance, being that I no longer own a car here. Driving is fun for me, cause I never do it anymore. Im always on public trans. Car rental is around $240 w/ins. Thats alot (still cheaper than NY rental,,thats what you would pay for a weekend). Oh decisions, decisons, decisions. This should be my only problem in life Id better decide soon.

I was busy watching the Yanks lose also...It wasn't a good night.

I hope Clemens pitches a great game tonight. If the Redsox beat the Yankees after all these years of trying it will seem as though the world has turned upside down.

As far as the bunk bed room goes, I haven't decided yet if I should try and get one. My girls are 7 & 5. I think part of the fun of being away from home for them is getting to sleep in the same bed together. It's like a slumber party for them. I think I would rather have the view of MK if I had to choose.
