DisneyDmbNut,

Too funny actually I didn't read the Weather Report today because I had to go to work this a.m. just goes to show great minds think alike.

I also think a great relaxing thing to do is walk over to the Villas to the Iron Spike Room and play a game or two of checkers.

They have checkers there!? My DS5 LOVES playing checkers. DH and he were sitting at that little table in MK playing checkers while I went into Exposition Hall to pick up our pictures. Everyone walking by would stop and just look at them. Not sure if they thought they were an act or just thought they were crazy for playing checkers while they were in Disney World....

For the record, I skip the weather right now (since I'm not going down anytime soon), but I always look for the Tip for Today!!

Yep, checkers, chess, big cozy rocking chairs, and large beautiful fireplace. (modle train engines & some train cars they are stationary) I have taught four of my nephews how to play while we where staying at the Lodge. We usually go down before the EWP and play until time for the show or when they run out of quarters at the game room.

Hello Vets! I have a question about the Deluxe rooms (or junior suites). I assume that there is still the additional charge of $25/night/adult over two adults in the room and if you reserve one of these what floors are the located on? Are they on the concierge floor and if not do you get concierge access with the suites? If not can you add access to concierge when you book the suite and how much extra is it? My mother-in-law may join us on our next trip and I thought this might be a nice way to give everyone some extra space!!! Thanks in advance if anyone is able to answer my many questions!!!

There is still that fee for more than 2 adults in the room.
Also, there are deluxe rooms on other floors(other than 7th floor). I think you can add concierge service on, but I am not positive!

Jr. Suites

We were given a complimentary upgrade to a Jr. Suite during our trip this past January, but we only had two adults and one child, so I can't help with the additional person charge. But I can help with location! We were in room 2000, and we didn't have access to the Concierge amenities. It was a wonderful room with views of the fireworks and the ELP every night.

Weatherwoman Looking Forward to being out of a job!!!

GO ROY! GO ROY!

Current Temp at the Lodge: 59*
Sunrise: 7:01am
Sunset: 6:19pm

TODAY

Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 70s. South winds 5 to 10 mph.

TONIGHT

Partly cloudy. Patchy fog after midnight. Lows in the mid 50s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

SATURDAY

Partly cloudy. Highs around 80. Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

WL Zippadee Do Dah Tip for the Day:

Many newbies don't know that small sitting areas are located toward the front of the Lodge on the 4th and 5th floor. Comfy chairs and fireplace make a perfect "after park" retreat. Grab your mug and enjoy the view of the lobby below.

POOLS: Silver Spring and Silver Creek meanders down to the waterfalls and into the pool. There is a small slide and it is in the rocks that jut out into the pool. Two large hoppers by Trout pool bar have abundance of towels. The main pool is very pleasant during morning hours and does become somewhat crowded in the afternoon. Our plan was to stay at the main pool and after lunch move over to the Villas pool. While smaller is very nice and less crowded. A bonus is they have piped the lobby music to Rock Speakers in the surrounding landscape. We had a table in the shade and a speaker nearby and was very relaxing and enjoyable. WL sound track offers a very good selection of Western songs.
On the back of each Lifegaurd station is a white board. Each morining they list Park Hours, that day's weather and Lodge activities, like Duck races.
At the end of the main pool is the Kiddie pool. Up the steps are the teo spas.


Is either a zero entry pool by chance? Thanks for any info you can offer. can NOT wait to stay at WL!!!!!! WOO HOO!

I wasn't able to get the map link to work...it said I wasn't authorized for that area. Is there another place I could go to get one? We'll be staying there the week of March 6 and I'd love to get a sneak peek at the map.

Thanks,

Donna C.

I have a question for you Vets. How many Deluxe rooms are there? What's the difference b/w the Deluxe room & the Jr. Suite? What is the likelihood of getting an AP rate on a Deluxe room or Jr. Suite? We are traveling in October.

Oh, Hi DisneyDmbNut!

Oh, Hi DisneyDmbNut!
Deluxe & Jr suites are the same rooms. There are not many, I don't know exactly how many. These rooms are very rarely discounted, to anybody.
