Re: Re: Re: too small?

I agree with you regarding the sleeping but I gotta admit....the large rooms at the Poly allow for more room to play and relax when doing the down time thing at the hotel. That is a nescessity there too because the concierge lounge is too small and crowded to play in and the main lobby is in another seperate building.

On the other hand, we realized that at WL and the smaller rooms, we just go down to the lobby and relax and do our thing there. There's plenty of room and the atmosphere....well you guys already know. You don't even have to walk outside to get to it like at the Poly.

I guess it's just a matter of taking advantage of the resources available to you. I'm far from a disney expert and heck I haven't even stayed at many other hotels but I am also a creature of habit and not fixing things that aren't broken.

Fred - ITA with your thinking on the Poly...the rooms are bigger, but you can't just "stroll" down to the Lobby with your mug and relax..it is kinda a trek. I have only just discovered the 4th and 5th floor fireplaces and NOTHING beats the Lobby music to relax ya.....


Remind me AGAIN why I am not staying there next month!?!?!?!

Because you got a good rate for another hotel or there was no availability at WL. That's why we did the Poly.

I like going to the CR but don't think I would enjoy a stay there because I don't care for the theming. I do think the views would be fantastic though. Certainly worth something right?

LOL, Betsy! sometimes you need to try new resorts to REMIND YOURSELF (and others) of your TRUE LOVE!!

Well, Melissa at IPO has everything set for our December trip.
I am soooo excited to FINALLY be returning to the lodge!

Fred, since I use Webshots also, I can link my WL Christmas pics to your WL homepage. BTW, I have you listed on my favorites page.
I plan on taking at least a 300 or so pics!


That way, you can go thru them and move what you want over to the official wildernesslodge webshot page.

Oh yeah...the $$ thing...damn me for not winning the lottery!!

I stayed at the CR before and the decor is less than fantastic, but hopping on the monorail is a nice consolation. I am really going to miss hearing "Welcome Home" when I drive in...

Plenty of space !!!

1. I understand all the rooms are the same sq ft, but which rooms have more "walk around" space? Rooms with 2 queens? with queen and bunk beds? King?



Last August DH and I had an upgrade from woodsview to courtyard ; I guess all room have about the same planimetry and WE NEVER FELT to be tight !!!

We had two queens and there was a lot of walking space around EACH bed !

absolutely lovely !!!!

I'm going in January 2005

I have to share with all of you since no one I know in "real life" really understands my love of Disney.

DH, DS (5) and I are going from 1/2/05 - 1/08/05!!

And we decided to book a Concierge room!

This will be our 4th WL visit in as many years... it really is like "home" to me. Last year we upgraded to Concierge at check-in for $50 more a night - but I realllllly wanted it this time and didn't want to chance it not being available.

Now I have to decide which tickets to get.....

I can't wait! I can't wait!



oooh - I should add a counter!

Re: I'm going in January 2005

You should also enter your dates in my "Who's Going" webpage/database. See who else is going when you are!

As for your dates, we are booked for 1/10 to 1/16 so are right behind you!! Too bad we won't be able to meet.

The good news is your dates are within the christmas decoration dates so you will probably see the lodge all decked out for the holidays.

I'll do that too - I've been busy making a countdown clock!

By the way - I don't post much - but I have been reading - congratulations on the new addition to the family.

By the way - I'm in Central Jersey too - We just moved to Westfield (Union County) in August

I'm glad the tree will still be up - it was our last two visits in November '03 and '04

Anyone need a room at WL concierge for 12/3 to 12/5? Someone is about to cancel and wanted to give a heads up as availability has been limited there.

So sorry no WELCOME HOME, but do you get free Jelly with your toast while staying at the GIANT TOASTER?
