    Disney's WILDERNESS LODGE, BOULDER RIDGE VILLAS, COPPER CREEK VILLAS and CABINS Information Thread

    Also, a heads up to those traveling soon. WL (incl. CCV and BRV) is Gate 8 at the new DHS bus loop. It is the first bay on the closest loop to the bathrooms. It shares with the Contemporary Resort (as does the bus to/from AK) and you will most likely share busses after the morning rush. Note...

    Although we had a bit of a mattress issue, the rest of our trip, and Boulder Ridge Villas, was awesome! Here are just a few pictures of our time at what feels like our second home 😊

    Disney's WILDERNESS LODGE, BOULDER RIDGE VILLAS, COPPER CREEK VILLAS and CABINS Information Thread

    The boat to Ft Wilderness takes about 10-15 minutes. We gave ourselves 45 min from leaving the villa at BRV to get over to Ft Wilderness by boat, and that was plenty of time.

    The were patrolling the shore with a light later in the morning and evening. I'm guessing someone reported the gator sighting.

    You will probably be fine. The Villa we stayed in was in good shape. All other mattresses in our 2 bedroom were okay...just the one we slept on was not great.

    Teenager with Autism...tips?

    We wrapped up our trip on Tuesday. Getting home was a bit stressful just because travel is. We all were tired and a bit cranky. Overall, the trip was amazing. My stepson rode things he didn't think he could (FoP and Slinky), but with encouragement he tried and loved them. He was so proud of...

    Teenager with Autism...tips?

    We are here now. My stepson decided to opt out of the DAS. We've had some challenges, although most of the trip has been fine. Getting him to drink fluids has been challenging, and then he gets dehydrated and cranky and his impulse control, already not the best, becomes rather non-existent. But...

    Official Disney Cake Chatter - Part V!

    Got our Chewie cake last night on our Illuminations boat cruise! It was awesome! Ordered ten inch, marble cake with chocolate butter cream frosting with dark chocolate mousse filling. Made by the Yacht and Beach Club. Cost was $80. The boat captain...the amazing Becca, put the porgs on for me...

    Yep, we saw them in the pool yesterday. I don't blame them...from our balcony at BRV, we also saw a pretty large gator go into Bay Lake from in front of the cabins.

    Just one of them waddled into the bar. I figured she must have been a regular because she didn't get shooed out right away 😊

    Shot is an understatement. We turned it, and you could tell someone else had already tried that. The area where you sit by the nightstand, the springs are just shot. Haven't made it to the front desk, but I'm planning to stop by before heading back to the park this evening. Hopefully they can...

    Here now at BRV in a dedicated 2 bedroom. What in the world is up with the beds?! The one I slept on last night was one of the worst hotel beds I e slept in. And I travel monthly for work, up to 2 weeks at a time, so I've slept in a lot of hotel beds. The bed is saggy and sinky and the springs...

    Jambo! The newest AKL Information thread

    We we're in room 3112. I had actually requested a standard room on fourth floor directly across from 3112 on Kudu trail. We we were on Ostrich trail right off the lobby. It ended up bet an awesome location. Would definitely request that room again. We even saw zebras and one giraffe, plus lots...

    Jambo! The newest AKL Information thread

    We got here yesterday for just one night. A little sad it wasn't longer because we had a blast just enjoying and exploring the resort. We move to WL today, which will still be great. I will share more pics later...as an FYI, the front half of Kudu Trail, closest to the lobby, appears to be in...

    Jambo! The newest AKL Information thread

    We aren't CL, unless we get exceptional pixie dust. We are just std view. Got an awesome deal when the summer offers first came out for only $10 more than POFQ (where we were going to stay). Very excited...can't wait for tomorrow! Plus my boys are going to love the animals and the pool!

    High Chairs or Booster seats?

    We are staying in a 2BR at BRV, so it should have one. Thanks!

    Does the Magical Express always take about 2 hour?

    At the time of night, we've had it arrive 5 hours after. We usually just ask at the front desk for them to hold it at Bell service until morning if we arrive after 5 pm.

    High Chairs or Booster seats?

    I was just wondering if the DVC villas have high chairs or booster seats available? Or should I just rent one?
