    Anyone know where I can plug my wireless router in the room? I can't find an Ethernet plug and the wifi sucks.

    Just returned from our first stay at WBC. It was wonderful. I plan to stay here again in the future. We have not 1 complaint. We were in room 556 in Tower 3 in a 2bd deluxe. We could see Illuminations nightly. Next time we stay here, I want to stay longer so that we can enjoy more of the amenities offered.

    We are looking at staying at Bonnet Creek in February and were going to use my mom's timeshare on a 4 bedroom. None are available at the 10 month window. I priced Vacation Strategies, Ken Price, and Farrell's Vacations. Vacation Strategies and Ken Price came in around the same price. Farrell's Vacations came in way cheaper for the week we are looking at. Anyone know why or know any specifics? The other two require a deposit is Farrell's a pay in full?

    I booked through Farrell for a 7 day June trip. He was the only one that had a four bedroom and was way cheaper than the other two you mentioned, as they still sent me quotes. Farrell is pay in full.

    Check EBAY. That's where I found my 4bdrm Presidential suite for a week for the exact dates. I took a risk and waited until the 60 day mark. Check redweek and myresortnetwork too.

    HI -
    We are checking out tomorrow and are considering renting a cabana to have a resort day before our 8 pm flight. I have a couple of questions.

    1. Which cabanas do you prefer Tower 5 or 6?
    2. Will there be a place to change? Perhaps even shower?
    3. DO I call the front desk to book it?

    Thanks for any help

    I thought the ones at tower 6 looked nicer for some reason.

    That is great you enjoyed your stay! We are getting read to go to Disney and staying at Bonnet Creek for a week. We requested a highfloor 2br in Tower 3 as well. We were told it was recently renovated with granite and flat screen tv's. Is this correct info? Thank you in advance!

    Yes, the kitchen area had granite counter tops and there were flat screen tvs.
    The furnishings were far nicer than at any of the WDW DVC villas and I say that as a DVC member.

    Just returned late last night and all I can say is WOW! The resort is so beautiful and the room was fantastic. We were on the 6th floor of Tower 2 and was facing a golf course. It was easy to get anywhere we needed to go.

    We booked with Vacation Strategies and there was no problem at all.

    On check out day, we decided not to return to a park and instead rented a cabana for the day. What a great decision! Such a relaxing day, hitting all the pools and playing mini-golf. It was great to take a day to take advantage of all the resort had to offer. At $50 it was a bargain!

    My family will never cram into an overpriced Disney resort again!

    Has anyone else encountered a problem with the dryers in the unit? We stayed in a 1br presidential last November and for the life of me I couldn't get anything to dry in that thing unless it was in at least twice, way more for towels. By the end of the week we were just hanging stuff up all over the unit to dry.

    Wondering if they are all useless or if we got stuck with a bad one. Will be good to know for this visit.

    (We didn't overfill it, it was at least half empty most of the time)

    Thanks!

    The first time I used the dryer, it was all towels and it took a couple of cycles to dry. After that, I didn't put all of the towels in the same dryer load and everything dried fine. If this doesn't work, call the desk. Once at BWV we had problems and the heating element was bad.

    We booked through Vacation Strategies too and final payment is now due to them. Do you ever get any confirmation information from Vacation Strategies? Just wondering how this works after I pay the final balance.

    I did not get a confirmation with my name on it, just an email that they had received my payment and that I just needed my license at check in and that was exactly right.

    I've gotten to the point of almost expecting to run the dryers twice. the biggest problems I've found have to do with making sure the lint screen is cleaned.... and unfortunately some units the lint screen is pretty beat up so the airflow and drying ability seems to have been impacted. (and how knows how dirty the exhaust is).

    The dryers were not good. The dishwasher was not good either.

    Ok, good to know it wasn't just me! Our clothes dried faster being hung up around the apt. We didn't have any problems with the dishwasher but the microwave didn't work when we arrived. They replaced it pretty quickly. We also had no batteries in any of the TV remotes.

    Still loved it though!
