Hey Fred.........what do you think my chances are of upgrading to concierge for the 3 days I was able to book at WL at rack rate? Do you think it's worth asking when I check in, or does the fact that they say they are "booked" mean I don't have a prayer? You know, first time I stayed at the lodge, I asked about upgrading to concierge at check in, and was not very savvy about what it really meant, and I passed up a fabulous deal. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS ONE??????? I could have had it for $30 a night extra! and I had such a good rate to begin with, that, well, it's one of those things that you just never get over! So anyway, think it's worth a shot?

A new WL thread #5!. Let me remember 999ghosts who was so helpful to so many of us a couple of years ago. If you read this 999, you're still remembered as a great and helpful CM.

Thanks to Fred and Beckie for all your hard work, too.

You can ask for the upgrade at checkin and if it is available, they will give it to you. Is it worth it? I would say yes but I love staying concierge. It will probably run you about $50 to $55 a night for the upgrade would be my guess. That's after taxes too I believe. Anyone recently upgrade to concierge want to confirm that???

Ask away if you have any other questions for concierge. I will do whatever I can to help.

What are your dates for WL again?

Fred

Does anyone know if the rooms at WL have cedar in them? Cedar is one of my daughter's asthma triggers. I've called Guest Services at WL a few times but can't seem to get anyone who knows.

Thanks for any info.

I'm just not sure about the cedar either, can't remember...I know some resorts have Cedar strips added to the closets and dresser drawers to protect cloths but I don't remember smelling the distinctive cedar smell while staying at the Lodge. This would be way to important to just say there isn't any...Maybe special needs could help you with the correct answer.

Hope your trip is MAGICAL

Fred- We are jumping over to WL for the 11th, 12th, and 13th of November. AKL from the 6th thru 10th. I'm hoping the move goes smoothly since I'll be elsewhere that day! But I figured I'd call that morning before leaving AKL and just ask to see what the cost would be. I've read so much about your concierge stays, and it just sounds so nice.............

Cedar? I don't recall any cedar smell in the rooms. My DS and I both have asthma, and didn't have any trouble, but then I don't know if cedar is a trigger for either of us. Sorry I can't be more help!

Don't worry about the move. Guest services will take good care of you!! We've done it before and had no troubles at all.

Last month when we stayed at the Lodge I asked about the upgrade to concierge and was told $60.00 +tax a night..this was on a woods view. But I had booked two rooms with five children so I passed.

Opps: Let me add that the CM that was checking me in was in training and had his trainer watching every move so he might have been limited to his responce.

Hi all

We are staying at WL in December, it will be out 2nd stay there. DH loves this resort.

I had the email for the IPO, but lost it. Can someone post it for me? I need to email them about some arrangements. I usually don't do too many PS's, but I saw the hours and figured I need to at least do some.

Thanks

Valerie

You can email WDW.WLodge.Itinerary.Planning@disney.com for Wilderness Lodge Itinerary Planning. Take note that the people that do the planning in advance do not actually work on the concierge floor at WL. They also plan for guests staying at the Polynesian in concierge.

We just returned last night from 4 glorious nights at the WL on the Concierge level. I must say that the staff was great, they assisted in any way possible and the food on the Concierge level was great!!

The e-mail is wdw.wlodge.itinerary.planning@disney.com

Hope this helps!!!
