The legacy of Jiminy Cricket lives on.
As I said, they have NOT been successfully doing this at Wilderness Lodge as it is. I had a balcony overlooking the smokehouse and the same forest that this cabins will be up against.
Whenever I've been bitten by a mosquito, it's been at a resort. I wonder how mosquitoes are for the Treehouse Villas? I was also eaten alive on the bridge between Bay Lake Tower and Contemporary watching Wishes in October. And there's concrete everywhere, there!
I'm not complaining, by the way. I'm genuinely curious of what the plan is here.
I can say that I have never been bitten at a resort and I have stayed at nearly all of them. I honestly don't think I have ever been bitten at WDW.
That being said, the mosquito problem in Florida has been getting worse over the last few years. A single hard freeze will often deal a serious blow to mosquito population and the majority of the state has not seen freezing temperatures for more than a few hours at a stretch for what seems like several years.
Maybe I just taste better to them.
That is quite possible. There has been a lot of research showing that mosquitoes do prefer some people over others.
The lake side porches are screened in.
Here are the views from our room.
I'm just going to say right out - Geyser Point is spectacular. The view from our table.
One of the best views at a Disney QS.
Is there an unseen barrier between those tables and Gator Bay?
There is a drop and a wooden post fence with netting to keep out the gators.
Also, the general theming in this new area is top notch.
Yes and the food is terrific too.
Unfortunately, it comes at a price of almost destroying the WL. But who cares so long as The Timeshare Kingdom of the World grows, right?
The new villas look absolutely like crap and are designed like someone went to IKEA. And the convoluted back story that cost WDI who knows how much to craft is absurd. The whole idea that WL was created in the image of National Parks lodges has been replaced by railroad and travel tales. And the 'Copper Creek Villas' reside inside the WL, but why should that matter?
Ken Potrock spoke of the newest Disney Vacation Club resort in a video that was posted on the DVC Facebook page. Regarding the cabins, Ken said that DVC was listening to its members by creating more unique offerings. If the average member owns 150 points and a week in a cabin during Adventure season is 639 points, then who do you suspect DVC is listening to for suggestions?
One day, 20 years from now, after DVC and Parks & Resorts have erected a dozen or so towers and skyscrapers, I wonder if someone with sense will realize that Walt's planned utopia became another major American city driven by capitalism and corporate greed.
If people are willing to spend there money, they should keep building. I love capitalism and so did Walt. If it wasn't for capitalism, there would be no Disney.
WTH is this? bathrooms for the new pool? Looks worse than the cabins.
I would assume so, they aren't labelled on a map.
According to my DVC rep, there will be a satellite office at WL, in addition to the main office at SSR.
Having bathrooms by the pool is a good idea. That way DVC members who are pool hopping don't have to use the bathrooms in the lobby.
It already is....it has its own improvement district. Neither the cities of Buena Vista or Bay Lake existed before Disney....Disney created them.
I'll be back at the end of April for the SW half. I plan on spending many an afternoon with a brew in hand, looking at that view.
Has anyone visited the sales center and seen the mockups?
