    Does anyone have any information on the rehab schedule for the Yellowstone and Yosemite suites at the lodge?

    Thanks

    Oh, I was just wondering if you were going to post some updates to us while you're at WL. Some post photos or talk about what they did or ate that day. Nothing formal, just making us all feel like we're right there with you:goodvibes

    If no one responds, you can check the Lodgers' Log on the first page to see if anyone overlaps with you and then you can PM them to try to meet.

    :rotfl: A pontoon would be perfect - or that Pirate Cruise boat would work:scratchin

    We are honored to be chosen as your 1000th post thread:worship:

    CONGRATULATIONS AND MANY, MANY MORE!!!

    Success:thumbsup2

    That is so neat, but he'll always be remembered for the bed wedge;). Do you miss being a CM?

    You're too funny, but no, I'm not adding 3 more days and no, why would I tell you not to stay one night at VWL?! How exciting that your DW might become a TA! Some like to request a high floor that looks out toward Bay Lake:)

    All WL rooms were rehabbed last year. The suites were rehabbed last spring, but I don't have any updated photos of them. I will try to get some in July though.

    We stayed in the suite in October and it was not rehabbed. It was almost exactly the same as ten years earlier. I was told that it was going to be this summer but can't seem to get a confirmation on that.

    Thank you so much for posting that information, floridafam. I am going to update the first page to include this. I have no idea then why they weren't rehabbed. Which suite were you in in October? Would the IPO know when they might be rehabbed? I could ask them if that might help.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I didn't really think you would say not to stay at VWL. :rotfl2:

    WDWKOOK I blame you for this haha!! :rotfl2: We just took advantage of the 30% Visa Discount to switch our first 3 nights over to the Polynesian Club Level - Garden View. We have never stayed there before and so super excited to try it.

    Still equally as excited to be going back home for the remainder of our stay at the Wilderness Lodge. I am not sure if its because it was the first resort we stayed at or the amazing experience we had when we went back for our honeymoon but it sure holds a special place for us.

    So we will now be at the Poly Club 9/2 - 9/5 and then WL Club 9/5 - 9/11. Yay!!!! :yay:

    HA! I am rather partial to Bay Lake, in a split stay kind of way. Are you thinking of booking the Studio or One Bedroom?

    :rotfl:
    Fine, I'll take all the split stay blame and I even updated your Log entry;). But, when are you adding CR/CL?

    Haha! I wish!! We stayed there for our first night in 2011 and DH isn't a big fan. Hoping to one day talk him in to giving BLT a try though!

    I am envious of your 15 nights - would be so awesome to be away from work for that long! I hope your trip is fantastic! :-)

    We booked a Studio for the one night, and got an Artist Point ADR to match. We've only been to AP once before, so it'll be good to try it again. We didn't love it last time (didn't hate it either, it was just okay, though I do remember the mac and cheese being fantastic), but we didn't love Jiko our first time, either, and REALLY liked it on our recent trip.

    We did a bunch of booking yesterday -- the one studio night in VWL, the DCL cruise, and our April 2014 AKL 1BR stay. :cool1:

    I have to call and add room requests, will request the high floor bay lake view you suggested, that sounds perfect.

    We'll probably want something quick in the morning, does the counter service (Roaring Forks, right? Wow, this whole thing is new to me!) have good muffins or anything like that? Do they still have them out in the afternoon/evening if we wanted to get them the day before so we have them in the room already? Don't know if we'd do that, but it might be good to have the option.

    Thanks!!!

    Here are some WL roof photos, but I don't think I see any solar panels in these, but that doesn't mean they aren't somewhere else on property.

    You don't have any information about the suite rehabs do you?

    I will post my findings here - which may not be much, but I'll try:surfweb:

    Well, DH hasn't really been able to take leave since the whole sequestration business started so he ended up with more than usual that he needs to take. It's a win-win for both of us;)

    Yippee! I put your dates into the Lodgers' Log:)

    Yep, RF has all you'll need and their cupcakes are amazing, but no muffins in the evening. If you're not in a big hurry, WCC has a great breakfast served family style and so does TE at FW. The Mercantile also sells pre-packaged baked goods and you can always order room service ahead of time;)

    I logged you, too!

    It's official! You're logged. Enjoy the peace and quiet;)

    I added your honeymoon to our Lodgers' Log on the first page. So many are going in September:thumbsup2
