We arrived at VWL after being on the cruiseline bus for 2 hours! (Six stops along the way plus waiting for cruisers to board!) I will answer any cruise questions later, but don't want to comment till Blossom has gotten on board! Here is a pic of me with Cruisin Mickey! At 11:00a our room was not ready, but they had one available (not meeting any of our requests), so I denied it and said we would wait. So glad we did, it was an awesome room with a great view. It looked to have been newly refurbbed with a new mini fridge, new microwave, Corian counters, new carpet and beadspread. I especially like the little coffee table by the sofa (sure wish BWV had these!). Our view from 3543 studio; Crowds were light at the resort, we hardly saw anyone around our hallway, elevators were really fast! The quiet pools was heavenly most of the time, and the resort as a whole was very manecured with topiary, mulching, etc.
