    If you have time do the tour of the resort. DH and I did it last month after staying there 3 times we really enjoyed it. It's offered everyday I think around 9 it's on the activity sheet.

    How are the views from the rooms, and how is the transportation to and from the parks? :)

    Yes! I have a question. At the main pool are they doing any sort of Pool Party with music and games? They had been doing that last year at all the Deluxe resorts, but hadn't heard if they were continuing it through this year.

    Thanks!

    Is it worth the Deluxe pricing? or shall we stick to the POFQ?

    Do you think the villas seem like a long walk to the main pool?

    We have stayed at the WL several times so I'll ask;

    Did the lobby "knock your socks off" when you first entered for check-in?

    Have you eaten at Whispering canyon cafe and had the courage to ask for catsup?

    Have you taked pictures of the family in front of the mercantile?

    Have you tossed coins into the 'bubbling brook" and made a wish that you return?

    Enjoy!

    Oh, I'm envious! I hope you're having a great time!

    Is the main pool crowded? Are there any available lounge chairs? I ask because it seemed like the last time we stayed at WL, there were a fair share of pool hoppers and there were never any available lounge chairs.

    Have fun!

    Would you be able to check out the store at the Villas? I am trying to figure out what type of breakfast items they might have. Milk? Juice? Donuts? etc. Any size and costs would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    We'll be at the WL in two weeks and (like Brian) we're wondering about construction. Supposedly they were going to be working on replacing the wooden walkways leading to the boat dock, and be done by early May. Are they in fact working on the walkways? If so, is it bothersome?

    Thanks!

    If you are eating at Roaring Forks, can you look and see what is available at the soda fountain. I'm trying to pre-decide on buying refillable mugs and wonder what the choices are. Thanks, have a great time!!

    Are the rumors of resort mugs in purple and white actually true, or is it still just pink, aqua, and yellow?

    Hi! I was lurking because I am planning for next year and very curious about WL.

    DS and I were at WDW and at the GF when we first got there it was just pink, aqua and yellow. But the day we were leaving we saw black as well.

    Hope that helps! And if you have any insight on WL please share!!! :goodvibes
