Thank you.

P.S. Yes, Magic, it's me - your fellow Wishes cruise mate.
Hi Diana,

I told Tim,
Ratpack,
I worried over how to make my room request, this is what I had added to my reservations...Woods View, North Wing overlooking the otter pond with castle view, if possible.
If I get a broom closet I'll still be happy....


Diana, can't wait until the Wishes Cruise.

Ah! Okay

Magic,

I thought that maybe you had a script for making a call ahead of time. I too have North wing, non-smoking, bunk beds with view of the castle if possible, although it doesn't show it on the form that came in the mail.

We won't be getting to the WL until 3 p.m. or so on the 15th (driving from GA/SC border). I was going to call WL direct on the Wednesday before and re-check my reservation. Is this okay or will I anger the room assigning gods? It is imperative we have bunk beds.

I used to have a link to the Passporter web site that had a room request script maker, which is why I thought you had an actual script you might read from.

Thanks to all for their advice and encouragement.

We leave for WDW next Friday!

Too excited!

Diana

Diana,

My request didn't show up on my copy of the reservations but when I called to make a change the CM read it off to me...I wouldn't call the resort, only because I too would be worried it might anger the rooms assigner gods...If for some reason they don't have the Bunk Beds available when you are checking-in, then ask to please change rooms the next day if possible. Arriving at 3:00p.m. should be OK, I would move all the watches and car clock ahead a few hours to arrive ASAP but I don't have small ones to travel with. Have a have a safe trip down.

MICKEY'S DREAMERS,
Wow, great video, made me want to be there NOW.

Hi fellow lodgers !!

As a guest of WL, can we use both the WL pool and the Villas private pool?

I just wondered if it would be okay to see if the Villas pool was a bit quieter and calmer if the main pool should become too crowded.
I am not much into swimming in a pool thats so crowded.

Thanks!
~Chris

TooBoyz4us,

We do just this, let the children use the slide then when we want to swim we use the Hidden Springs Pool, I also prefer the Hidden Springs Spa (hot tub) and most times have it all to myself.

OK, here is another room request question. I booked a woods view for 3 rooms, requested non-smoking, rooms together, now I find out that we will not check in until 8 pm and I would like a view of MK. When I call CRO should this be the wording to use-- Non-smoking, MK view, rooms together, late check-in 8pm.
Will CRO note all this on my ressie? Do you think by doing this maybe they would assign us the rooms we would like?
Thanks!
First trip to WL and getting very,very excited!!

Margaret West,

Yes you can have that information added to your reservation, and the room assigner will see it, I'm sure they will try and accommodate your request. Do you just need the three rooms close to each other (adjoining) or do you need a connecting room? (verbage is very important) What about beds do you want a King Size bed, are 2 queen beds OK, or do you need any Buck Beds?


MICKEY'S DREAMERS,

Thanks MAGICinMYHEART.
They don't have to connect, we want 2 with queens beds and one with bunks, 3 rooms total. I will call CRO and make sure all this is noted before we leave and we will see what happens.

First trip to WL!

DH and I are going to WDW in December, from the 4th to the 10th. Originally we were going to stay at POR but my sweet DH booked WL instead as a surprise for me!

I have been reading a lot on this thread and have a couple of questions..

We have booked a standard room. Is it possible to get a king bed in a standard room or do you have to upgrade to a better "level"? Which standard rooms offer the best view? If you don't ask for a woods or courtyard view what sort of a view do you get? We are going to ask about upgrading to Courtyard or even concierge when we check in but I would like to know what the others offer too!

We are VERY excited about staying at WL, we were at CBR in April and loved it but we know WL at Christmas will be AMAZING!

This is a wonderful thread! We have learned so much about WL and if everyone is this passionate about it we probably will be too!

Thanks to all!

Anyone else notice the UG lists WL as not having concierge?

I was switching from CBR to WL this afternoon. I got woods view, standard wasn't available for my code. I asked Tracy Irene (nice and helpful CM) what my chances are of getting upgraded to the 7th floor. She said it was pretty good since so few people know about it. I asked her to note a request for the 7th floor but not mention that I wanted a concierge upgrade. Now let's see if playing stupid works. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Speaking of rooms, I have a question.

Would any of you know, where would kingbed rooms be in the Southwing, 4th, 5th, or 6th floor, but further down toward Baylake? You know, closer to the pool and the gyser. Anyone know any room numbers? Thanks. :D
The only rooms that I have listed are either on1st floor or North Wing rooms!
Rooms 1026, 1027,1162,4073,5073 & 6025! There are probably others in South Wing...but where?...I don't know!
