That does help -thank you! I think we also will be happy with any view. I feel like the less I request, the more everything will be a 'surprise' and I can enjoy whatever we get. And I won't be disappointed if we don't get something I am a light sleeper - so I will keep your tip in mind!

Did I mention I am sooooo excited!

Hi! I'm new- never stayed or visited the WL- and have reservations at the VWL next July. I just wanted to know, can you see "Wishes" from the beach or any other public areas of the WL? I can't wait to get there!!!

Beach? Probably not but here is a tidbit from the first page that tells you where you "can" see wishes.

NORTH WING BUILDING B: Outside is Woodsview and is very quiet and private. We enjoyed it very much and would request it on future trips. We had a good view of Otter Pond, while we never saw any Otter’s there were plenty of Ducks swimming and Rabbits having dinner. The MK fireworks are very plain to see and my estimation is rooms 5012 to 5032 had the same opportunity as well as the same rooms on 4th and 6th floors. Rooms #008 to the end of the building are blocked by two large trees to view MK and to far from Otter Pond to see except a small end of it.

Courtyards views on the inside offer a fantastic view of the pool area and are somewhat noisy until the pool is closed for the day.

NOTE: If you are in the South wing,you canstill view the MK fireworks. Go to the 5th or 6th floor where the two wings meet. pull back the shutters on the big windows. Fastest way to get up it the elevater by RF.

OK, WL Vets should I request a room or just hope to be "sprinkled with pixie dust"?

I have a Woods view booked. With my original reservation I asked for bunk beds and a view of MK.

Should I just see what happens and if I am not happy ask to be moved or should I request a certain section before we arrive?

I would see what happens but there would be one request I "would" ask for.

For me, I would want to be up as high as possible. I know you requested a view of MK but just to be sure I would ask for a room on the 5th or 6th floor. Just remember that 6th floor is smoking though.

Getting close for you eh!!! You will have a great time.

Just came back from WL!

Congradulations on new thread! I am still new in WL site, but I enjoy it very much. You all WL Vets helped me so much before we took this trip. We just came back from WL last week. I wished I could say that WL experience was great, but we had a bit of not-so great experience there because of Magical Gathering.
Is it something I should share with you here?
Maybe, I did not do enough homework before I went, huh?

What a Magical Gathering after all....

Well then! Able to spend the nights at WL was wonderful experience. I stayed at Polynesian before, but WL room was much better, but since we got there right after hurricane Jeane (=sp?) left, floor was a bit wet. Did not bother to let hotel know.

Our Not so great experience occured due to Magical Gathering.
We were party of 14 and booked 5 rooms (1 Jr.Suites +4 rooms).
My Father in-law's majore concern was that all of us being on the same floor and they promissed that there would not be any problem by going through Magical Gathering. Once we got WL, it took Front Desk for a while to locate all of our resarvations. According to Disney, we had to have 3 different resarvations under one Magical Gathering#, however, they still had a hard time locating it. Then, she told us that one room got upgraded somhow and all rooms were in differnt location. 2 were on same floor, but the rest were in totally different area/views. After two hours of figuring out and Front Desk person going into back room for several times, we were able to have 3 rooms on 4th floor facing lake and 2 rooms on 3rd floor facing parking lot. Then, she tells us about Priority Seating @ Chef Mickey to confirm about # of people and time. She said it was 8:30PM for 10 people. I just confirmed that morning that it was 7:30PM for 14 people.... We spent extra miniuets to figure out, but there was no luck.... She told us to go to the restaurant and tell them the situation. I have requested Coffee Maker at each room and a crib in one of rooms, but they never showed up so we had to re-request again. I have requested and re-confirm MK view but Front Desk lady said there is no such MK view because of woods! By the time we figured out the room location, we were very tired of arguing with them (despite of all of Vets beautiful pictures). I brought my rice-cooker. I am an Asian and love to eat rice, so I brought it with me. 3rd day of our stay, I decided to make some rice and it was broken. Bell boy must dropped before he/she brought laggage to the room. MGR of WL showed up our room for apology and everything went well. WL replaced me with brand new rice cooker. My huband and father in-law were able to vent a bit about our not-so greate experience. Next day, we received a fruites basket.... Despite of all experience at WL, realized it was not them at WL could not accommodate our majore needs. (except coffee maker and crib). What a Magical Gathering experience we had, but over all we enjoyed very much staying at WL. We had a great service at Canyon Cafe and kids loved them. We were able to see MK's fire works and Water Pagent every night! Boat ride to MK/Conteporary to Epcot was excellent. Bus ride to MGM was great. Bus driver (Adrian) was very funny. Because of his humor, we did not feel long ride to MGM. Everyone at WL said, "Welcome Home!", that made us feel so special! We had a few not-so great experience, but over all, trip went well and we had another great memory at Disney!
Thank you for letting me share this with you all! Hope I can learn more from you for next WL trip. //Coko
