    According to allears:

    "All rugs and furniture in the lobby at Wilderness Lodge were replaced when this year's Christmas tree was brought in and set up."

    Really? All new furniture and rugs? Did anyone who was/is there notice? An improvement or equal replacement?

    Awww, you're very welcome. So great to read that you had a wonderful visit to WDW and WL and thank you for posting your mini TR. We'd love to see some of your view photos:goodvibes

    PSULion mentions a couple above, but it's usually best not to request a specific number in case that room isn't available. You could mention the room number as an example along with a short description such as: "North Wing, high floor."

    :wave:Nice to see you!

    You're going to love it - time to start packing:)

    :thumbsup2

    :wave:

    What happened to January? Never mind, I bet I need to take a look at your TR or the RC thread:hug: (hangs head in shame:flower3:). I can't believe with all your trips it's been two years since you all went as a family - is that even possible:confused3

    You're going to love the Old Faithful Club, flea1267! We were last there in August and April and it was terrific. The wonderful manager, Randy, is currently on a temporary assignment, but should be back by April, before you check-in.

    I have all the menus and photos of much of the CL food posted on the first page. Let us know if you have any other questions:goodvibes

    Thank you for posting that information. I couldn't find it in yesterday's AllEars newsletter. Where did you see it?

    Well, I missed it the first time:blush:, but after a more careful re-reading, I see in the latest AllEars newsletter that it does indeed mention the replacement of rugs and furniture in the lobby of WL. (Thanks again luvallprincesses). In fact, the blurb comes right after this:

    The price of refillable mugs at the Walt Disney World resorts has increased to $15.49.






    Could you have a boys-only trip in January or just take His Royal Minimeltdown to your RC Meet?

    If the kids haven't been to Epcot since '09, does this mean they don't even know about Duffy Bear or have they seen him in the shops?

    Also in the latest AllEars newsletter:

    Do they provide toiletries (e.g., shampoo, conditioner, lotion)? Hoping they do so that I don't need to pack any. It's been about 4 years since I stayed at WL and I can't remember. TIA!

    So if we loved WL (which we truly did) will we automatically love VWL??I'm not sure exactly when we can go back but I'm thinking my Mom will come with us and we may need to do a villa.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone! I'm thankful for all the wonderful posters we have here :grouphug:









    Welcome to the thread! Yes, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, liquid soap and bar soap is still provided at all WDW resorts. Recently, they changed to the grapefruit H2O+:

    Yes, you will! We're DVC owners and just got back from our 2nd stay at VWL. The lobby is smaller and less grand than the main building, but is still very cozy and beautiful. There are wood carvings of animals that are low enough on the ceiling that you can see the details. There's fireplaces and relaxing seating in the lobby and special room off of it. You can still hang out in the main lobby and use all the amenities in the main building. The buses are close to the villas too. I would have attached a photo of the Xmas tree in the lobby but can't figure it out.

    Thank you! We did briefly visit the lobby and pool over at the Villas. I really liked how quiet and cozy that lobby was. My son didn't let me visit long though. He was ready to keep it moving, lol!
