Could I get some help with a transportation question. This is our first WL stay so I have no idea how this is going to work. I have a CRT at 08:15 am. I personally like to get to mk by 745. When does the "big" boat start going to MK.. Is there bus service to MK? Does the little boat start earlier? What are the order of stops?? Finally could I just hop a cab from the WL to MK,in other words, are there cabs waitong outside at that time of day?


TIA, Sue

Oh that's very easy!

Take the small boat over to the CR (runs 7am - 10pm), then either walk or monorail to MK. Will take abt 30-40 minutes that time of the day.

You know what - call me crazy, but I'm not sure I would upgrade for free to concierge!! Only because I'm not sure I would like the rooms. I've never been to WL yet, but it sounds like the rooms are interior and overlook the lobby, and that just sounds too busy for me. I want to overlook the otter pond, and look at trees when I wake up in the morning. I can't imagine I would be around the hotel that much for the free food anyway?

Am I wrong??

Great job Fred and Beckie!!

We are staying in the 'Woods view' for our trip, and have requested non-smoking and bunkbeds if possible. I don't want to be a pain to the wonderful people at WL, but is there any thing else I should request as our day gets closer? A room or view? It is DH, dd(8yo) and myself- and we have never been to WDW!

Or should we just leave well enough alone? Thanks for any help

Sorcha----well, I've never stayed concierge as I said, but I dont think the rooms are any different than the ones on the other floors, (Majestic?) . In fact, I request a lobby view, because it's so wonderful to come out of your door and see that stunning lobby, it just makes you feel good! I stayed lobby view, (and hopefully will again this time), and had a wonderful courtyard view also. I think it was a bear face room now that I know what they are. Not that any room at the WL could be bad I guess! As for the free food, this trip I plan to spend a lot more time at the Lodge and less time at the parks. I guess I'm getting old!!! It's good to get everyones views and ideas though, thanks!

Thumbs up

Fred & Beckie

Thanks for starting the new thread. It really looks terrific.


Fred,
I did a survey for our stay at the Lodge in September. I will get it over to you soon. We stayed in Room 4081 (one night) and 5026. I have balcony views for 5026.


On a side note. DH loved our WL stay so much he is already looking into another trip for November 2005! This is a man who until this trip would only agree to travelling to Disney every 5 years.

I have a question for all you WL vets. We are staying at the WL concierge the end of Nov and beginning of December. When I've stayed at other WDW resort concierge rooms I've been contacted after booking, and have sent us stuff to fill out, our elevator keys etc ... We are about 50 days out from WL concierge and I haven't heard a word from them yet. So a few days ago I e-mailed them myself and intoduced our family. I explained how even after so many trips we were still so excited to be spending the holidays at WL, and to be celebrating my 40th birthday (the trip is my gift). I have still not received any reply. Am I expecting too much?? Funny thing is our concierge planner from last year e-mail me to welcome me back and wish me a happy 40th. Any suggestions?? I'm getting a little concerned at this point that they never offered to do PS's or anything. Thanks for any help.

Am I wrong??

Sorcha

Yep, your wrong...The rooms on the 7th Floor aren't interior and only four rooms overlook the Lobby (the honeymoon suites) the feeling while your at the Concierge Area is very informal, with the view of the Lobby and the music it is very relaxing. The remaining rooms are either Woods View or Courtyard View a few rooms over on the North Wing overlook a paved drive and the smoke house but to see the pavement you have to stand at the balcony and look over straight down. If your setting on your balcony the view is of the CR thru the tree tops, with the Monorail coming and going. Also the Castle (which changes color all thru the night) in the distance...on nights during WISHES you have your own private firework show.

AND

Yep, your right...the woods view overlooking the otter pond if on a higher floor has the same view toward the CR so they are wonderful very quite and peaceful...still great if located on a lower floor but the trees block the view more, this room has another great feature it's much more affordable which to me means I can visit more often or stay longer.

So yes concierge is great but if you are not in your room much, the food offerings wouldn't be much of a value to you, and you could buy a nice meal or two with the same amount of money each day.

The one thing I know for sure is your going to love the Lodge..
Have a MAGICAL TRIP

Seana/Julybride
Thanks, I am so happy your DH has finally seen the MAGIC. Just needed to find the right scenery for him.
More trips already planed...you go girl.

....Lambert808, ANY room you get will probably be lovely. The only thing I'd specify is, if you and your family are light sleepers, avoid lobby view/lower-floor rooms. Hope this helps....
