    Are there any one bedroom Villas that have a view of the MK? We are going for our first stay at WL from February 27th to March 3. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    No sorry, there aren't any villas that have a view of MK, some do have a partial view of the electric water pagent. Actually there are only a VERY few rooms at WL itself that have a view of the fireworks and no views of the MK from their also. The MK can not be seen anywhere from WL property, it is blocked by the Contemporary.

    That isn't completely correct - we stayed in one of the WL honeymoon rooms and had a view of the Castle from our bathroom window. We had a great view of the fireworks and partial MK view from the balcony, but we could see the Castle thru the bathroom window.

    You can definitely see the WL from MK, but I agree it is hard to do the oposite. I doubt you can see the MK from ANY of the Villas, although as mentioned, you might from the main Wild Lodge.

    I still really like the place, however!

    Some of the 5th and 6th floor woods view North Wing rooms at the lodge have a nice view of the castle. ;)

    In a way its kinda neat that you cant see MK from WL or VWL cause you get back from a long day at the parks, WL is a great place to unwind and get away from it all for a little while::yes::

    While you can't see the castle...I will say that you most definately can see quite a bit of fireworks from some of the villas. We were in a studio at the end of the hall on the third floor and we saw a good deal of the firework show from the balcony.

    We actually saw a few of the fireworks from an inner courtyard room in the main lodge a while back.

    I'm sure there are a few villas that can see some of the show.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. As long as I don't get the infamous "dumpster" view I will just enjoy whatever view we get.

    We just made our ressies for a quick four day stay in late April this morning and we're interested to know if anyone has any suggestions as to the rooms or floors of choice.

    We have reserved a 1BR unit.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated! :teeth:
