Advantages to early ressies?

Is there any advantage to having a super early lodging reservation? I made my lodging only ressie almost a year in advance of the date for two rooms. Now, I probaly will split the two rooms into seperate ressies so that I can add different options (meal plan and ticket numbers). By changing the date the original resservation was made, will I "lose" anything like perks or "place" in line for room request or potential upgrades?

In short, do they use the date of the ressie to determine the pecking order for room request?
Thanks.

Question HellOOOOOOO WL Lovers!! Refrigerator Question

I am now under the 30-day mark!! I can't tell you how truly excited I am to be staying at WL and WDW in such a short while!

I know that this may have already been asked, but will friges be in WL rooms in February?? I am about to book FL Tours, and want to add the 30-minute grocery stop option if the friges are in the room already. We'd probably buy: milk, Nesquik (DH and I love chocolate milk!), Coke, and some snacks. The milk won't last if the room isn't ready or if we have to wait for a frige to be delivered.

I am afraid that if I call CRO and try to add that request to my ressie, they may screw up and erase my previous requests (Woods View, Lobby, 6th Floor).

P,S. Where in the room do they put the friges??

Thanks in advance!!

I do not think they will be in the rooms yet. You have to call housekeeping to get it. We were not charged for it when we got it. They are placed under the sinks, so they are out of the way.
I can not wait either. I keep asking my DH when we can book our next trip. AP's burning a hole in my pocket.
Take care and for those of you who are on your way...........Pixie Dust for good times!!

For those staying at the lodge MLK weekend

We are too! Wasn't planned that way on purpose though. Any suggestions which parks will be busy on which days? We arrive 1/13. Do they still run buses directly to the MK or was that just a trial? I can't wait. :jumping4:

Exclamation

Help WL lovers, people are bashing on the WL in this thread:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=711761

Such comments like "AKL blows WL away!". Put your two cents in!

I love the WL!

Erika,

I'm pretty sure that you can get all of that at the mercantile. Of course it will cost a little more, but if FL Tours charges for a grocery stop you may still be ahead of the game.

Smile Wirki, Julybride and Fred. . .

Thanks for the input ! FL Tours does not charge for the grocery stop, so we may just get a 6-pack of Coke and some snacks.

Trust me, we will live it up--but within limits . We're getting a luxury car service--used FL Tours on our last trip to WDW in Oct. 2003 and are now spoiled with that. We aren't usually breakfast people, but we will DEFINITLEY be eating at WCC for breakfast 3 out of the 4 days we will be there (LOVE their omelet with everything in it). We also have dinner PSs at Marrakesh, LTT, 'Ohana, and Palio (love their Caesar salad with freshly imported anchovies and their tortelloni with lobster---YUM!). I am sure we will order room service at least once during this trip (DH loves this). Just being at WDW is living it up for us--I also love the PLANNING !

BTW, Fred, have a magical and fun-filled trip! You must be so excited to be leaving in less than 48 hours!! And you'll have all your beautiful women with ya

I know it is here somewhere, but I can't for the life of me find it...

Can someone please direct me to where I can find a list of food items offered in concierge?

Also, can you add concierge service to a discounted room, or are concierge rooms always rack rate? We are planning a mid=June stay at the wonderful WL and would like to consider concierge.

Thanks! You guys are great

I booked a Concierge room with an AP rate for our Spring Break trip. This is during Peak Season . So Passholder Rates are definitely sometimes available on Concierge rooms...
Good Luck!

Hi Erika,

I just figured out that we will be at WL the same dates Feb 6-10. DH, myself, DD7 and DS8. I don't have a countdown clock (new to posting) but I can just look at yours!!!!

This board has been so very WONDERFUL for the planning!! I'm in love with the lodge and have never seen it in person.

Fred, Have a magical trip ( 4 hours and counting)!!!!!

Smiles and pixie dust to all!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cindy

Boat that runs to the Contemporary

Hey guys

Can you tell me a little about the boat that runs to the Contemporary? How frequent is it? When does it start and end running each day?

Thank you

Not sure what time it starts running each day but I can say we've never waited more than 5 minutes or so. It's a really short ride. Sometimes this boat does the circle from the toaster to WL then to FW then back to the toaster but I've only seen that once.

Cyas all later!

Fred
