Re: What a Magical Gathering after all....

So there were definately a combination of factors that affected the overall outcome of your trip. I feel bad that you had these experiences as vacation time should be smooth and painless.

Sounds like Bell Services blew it with your rice cooker and from what you said, they made nice on it.

Sounds like Magical Gatherings pooched your reservation requests and the lodge did whatever they could to accomodate you.

As for the wet carpet, I know that they also shampoo the rugs in the rooms. Could that be why the floor was wet? In this case, we like to walk around bare foot so I would simply have mentioned the dampness to the desk crew or housekeeping.

What bothers me most is that the front desk said you could not see the MK. We all know that is untrue. In this case, without being nasty, I would have asked for the desk manager.

If we can help make your return trip to WL any better, just let us know! We're here to help!! (Just like the Koala Brothers...heheheh)

Our Not so great experience occured due to Magical Gathering.

Hi everyone!
We are heading to the WL in December for a week. It will be our first tiem staying there. We have a woods view, but I did not put in any request....I think I may have said non smoking though. Maybe I should call back to check. Hopefully we will have some pixie dust and get a MK view.....

I was wondering if there are any fun activities for children? (at WL not FW)We stayed at the AKL in May and they had a fun bead necklace activity that you could do. We ended up staying one whole day just at the resort lounging and participating in what they had to offer.

Also - will the FW petting zoo and things be open in December?

I am in the process of making my PS right now...so far I have two down....California Grill and Ohana's.....I timed CG for fireworks and that will be our anniversary dinner....oh so much planning.....

You may want to check out the cubs den there. I would say it depends on the ages of your children.

Anyone have some input for the cubs den?

Lilly - Mmmm...California Grill is my all time favorite...may I suggest the pork medalions with the polenta!! OH MY!!! Now I am very hungry!!

The Cub's Den has arts and crafts each day from 2-4pm...They always have different projects to make. By the pool, they have the Duck races ( rubber ducks race down the Silver Creek) and the winner gets a prize.

Our children will be at the Cubs Den on Nov 1, while DH and I dine at Artist Point. I will let you know what they think of it when I return.

Thanks Majestic on the floor request information.

Do you have to pay for the kids to do arts and crafts in the afternoon at the cubs den?

Thanks.

Nope...A&C are free, but you must stay and supervise your child...the evening babysitting service I have never used but maybe someone else can tell you what they do..I have heard nice things

Here is a list of all the activities for the children while staying at the Lodge:
On select days Wilderness lodge has programs for children: Duck Races on Upper Silver Creek, Pool Games, Fireside Storytelling, (Meet in your pajamas at the Mercantile Fireplace) Beach Games, Penny Toss & Duck Rings.
Daily Activities: Open Crafts and Games in Cub's Den (free)
Children must be accompanied by an adult.

*For good rainy day activities, ask for a Kid's activity/coloring book at the bell station or a list of Hidden Mickeys at Guest services.

And yes the Petting Zoo will be open during December.

We are getting so excited about our upcoming trip I just can't stand it! This weekend I plan to wash the new shirts I got all of us, and start packing some of our items for our trip. You all have been so helpful! I am sure I will have a few more questions as we get ready to go - but for now, a HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all of you!
