    You're welcome and thank you for your kind words. I really enjoyed creating and updating this thread for everyone.

    Did you stay in a Deluxe room again? I know what you mean about missing it right after leaving, so it sounds like it's time for you to plan another trip;)

    :hug:Great to have you here and I'm ready to put you in the log anytime::yes::

    New thread, old friends:grouphug: - hey, where is everybody else:confused3

    The new thread is a perfect segue to your new TR. I missed today's installment and look forward to catching up tomorrow, even though it makes me hungry! Check it out everyone:thumbsup2

    It's a GOOD busy and welcome back!

    I'd be happy to add you and I'm glad you love it:goodvibes

    Awww, thank you for taking the Blue Flag over here from the CR thread:)

    Yesindeedy!

    Thank you! Pull up a rocker and sit a spell.

    How exciting! Did you request North Wing?

    Welcome!

    Great thread! We are looking forward to our next WL stay in Nov 2013. Thought I'd gather any thoughts on my quandary with regard to that stay. Would like to try CL (hopefully with bunk beds), but can only confirm 11/9-11/16 with our discount. We did the week after Thanksgiving last year and LOVED all the Christmas decorations, cooler temps and lower crowds. Is it a ridiculously long shot to book what is available and hope for upgrading (by paying for it of course) to CL at check-in the Saturday after Thanksgiving? I can't decide if I should book the week we know we loved and risk CL not being available, or book the earlier week with CL and hope we enjoy it just as much?! So tough...

    I don't post here alot, but I do read from time to time as the WL was the second deluxe we tried (2004) and has been a favorite ever since :goodvibes.

    Welcome! There is great comfort in booking the familiar (and with a discount;)). I think that booking the week you know you love with lower crowds and beautiful decorations is the way to go. Even though you can't book CL right now, it doesn't mean that a CL room with your discount won't open up before arrival. I had BLT open up with our military rate just a few weeks prior to arrival. If that doesn't happen, you can still inquire at check-in, however, you would most likely be charged the rack rate price difference. But, I think if you book a non-CL room now and keep checking periodically for CL availability, it will probably open up before your trip.

    Great to have you lurking and posting, when the mood strikes you:thumbsup2

    My magical quill is ready for your dates! So glad you love the new and improved thread.

    Thank you so much:goodvibes. I must give a shout out to the amazing POP thread hostess, Janet B. Go to her thread for all your POP CENTURY needs::yes::

    You found us! Didn't want us getting shut down since we were fast-approaching 250 pages. Thanks so much for your kind comment, Kathy.

    Hey, Brian!

    I can always use some help around here. How old is DD now? Is she in college yet? Hope all is well!

    You're welcome:)

    Welcome and you've been added to the Lodgers' Log. (The list is getting mighty long:)). You're going to just love WL and the fantastic Old Faithful Club, Bay Lake, FW, the geyser, the EWP and WCC and... So glad you love the thread and let us know if you have any questions about your first stay.
