    We were at SSR last week and I only experienced one brief interruption in wifi towards the end of our trip.

    Since our next trip is at Kidani I am a little worried. Guess I will just plan on using cell service on my iPad.

    We were at BWV Jan 13-23 and were amazed at how good the wifi was! It was certainly an improvement from our last trip a year ago.
    I purposely checked wifi in different locations and was very pleasantly surprised to be able to access it almost everywhere, including in the parks!

    Of course it wasn't working when you're inside most of the attraction buildings but that's not a surprise.

    Stayed at BWV from 16th Dec to 18th January, internet at best was around 120 to 200 kbps. It would not support live streaming or VOIP applications. In the afternoons was the best. The help line said they were working on it and should be better in the future.

    Stayed at Aulani on the way home and the speed was over 20,000 kbps.

    How can the WDW resorts get it so wrong. The old wired system was much better!

    My boyfriend and I stayed at AKL Jambo house from January 20th - February 10th this year and the entire time we had very poor wifi. It was terribly slow and wouldn't even allow us to load anything from Netflix, whereas YouTube was iffy as well and often paused in the middle and needed restarting. My boyfriend contacted customer service at the hotel but they told us there was nothing that could be done.

    Oh yes, and as someone just mentioned, we were booted off wifi time and time again.

    We were at VWL from the 18th to the 20th, and during that time DS got sick. So there was some hotel-time, and everyone grew bored with the movies DH had on his computer (he had brought cables so the laptop could be connected to the TV, which was seriously good thinking on his part).

    He went to download a rental movie from amazon, and it just would NOT load. After ages went by and only something like 7% was loaded, he called someone. Said he called the front desk and they told him who to call. The woman on the other end indicated both that something could be done but it probably still wouldn't be good enough to download a movie.

    Half an hour later someone knocked on the door and it was a tech kind of guy. He checked things out, made a call, and our router was "refreshed" or something like that.

    After that the movie was downloaded in no time at all, and DS and DH were able to happily watch The Hulk.
