    Has anyone stayed at a 1bdrm at the villas lately? We are going in April, and havent been to the VWL in a few years and I heard it is outdated? Also, any suggestions for room requests?

    Had to change my dates due to airfare. We are now going September 15-21. Losing a day but saving $$$$ that can go towards something else while we are there!!

    i'm getting ready to book at the wilderness lodge. I am booking a standard room, is there an area that has some what of a good view that I can request? Would I be able to see any fireworks from MK from this view? Or should I try Woodlands? Any input would be great :) thanks!

    Hi! I just saw the video that featured the Deluxe Room. I did not see a ceiling fan. That is one of the reasons I talked my husband to this resort/room. I looked on the Disney Website and it still lists a ceiling fan, but I didn't see one in the video. It had a light fixture there! Oh nooooo!!!
    Can anyone confirm since the rehab?

    Just renting points and are choosing between Wilderness Lodge or Animal Kingdom lodge studios ... I have stayed at the Animal Kingdom lodge but never at Wilderness Lodge . Is this a good resort for Adults ? We are 4 adults and looked into Beach Club and Boardwalk but both are book for our time in November ... Any suggestions from those that have stayed at Wilderness Lodge ?? Thanks :confused:

    You know that both of these studios have one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa, right? I wouldn't want four adults in one studio unless it was maybe OKW for a very short time. OKW is the only studio with two queen beds.

    Yes but two of our adults are young like 23 and 25 they could sleep on a rock and be happy !! We are not in the room much anyway and it the sleper sofa is anything like the ones in ASMU Suites then I am sure they will be fine ... We are only there for 4 nights and will be out most of the time it really is only to sleep and shower the only reason to rent points is because it is $1000 cheaper then going through Disney themselves :thumbsup2

    Not good. I e-mailed the IPO and they said they called the front desk to confirm that all rooms have ceiling fans. That's strange they would tell me that.

    This is a pre-rehab photo (4/12) from the Deluxe room link in Post #2 of a Deluxe room ceiling fan, by elaw:

    I can't imagine they removed all the ceiling fans post-rehab, so I'm sure you'll have one above the two queens.

    I hope that is correct. The IPO confirmed with the front desk that all the rooms do. But the recent video that featured the deluxe room I did not see one. Sooooo confused!

    So this is kind of an odd question. We're booked in a deluxe room at WL Dec 29-Jan 10. 4 adults (mom, dad, grandma and great-aunt), 2 kids.
    What's storage like in these rooms? I hate digging through suitcases every day on vacation.

    In the photo on the previous page they show a dresser. With layers you'll need that time of year it may not hold all of your clothes but it's probably good for a few things. Are you flying or driving? If you drive one option may be to bring your own rolling rack. You can buy them at WalMart/KMart/Target for about $30 and unassembled they take up little space.

    That's a great idea. We are driving so that will probably work nicely. Thanks!

    I confirmed with the IPO (for the second time) and they said that the Deluxe Rooms do have fans. I told them I saw a recent pic of the deluxe room and it did not have one. I hope they are right. My husband wanted to stay at the Cabins due to cost and was I able to talk him into Wilderness Lodge Deluxe room one of the main reasons being the stupid fan! He will not be happy if he spent thousands more on a room when they told us they have them.
