    How do you think COVID19 will affect WDW?

    I view this differently so to each their own on level of paranoia on if we're all going to be ill. I'm not doing a whataboutism here truly, but the flu worries me more since it was literally more deadly this year. Yet I am not losing sleep over it either.

    How do you think COVID19 will affect WDW?

    Well where there are more concerns it's warmer weather already. Places like FL are in good shape too. I'm in the midwest and we're trending warmer at least where these viruses don't survive as well. We have so many people telling us Chinese are bad that we are starting to believe it. I don't...

    How do you think COVID19 will affect WDW?

    I doubt it will really. I agree that DCL would feel it before WDW would. I don't think we'll have wide spread illnesses here honestly and as weather warms it will fizzle like the flu does.

    AKL lovers!

    Oh I missed that - it wasn't under where I thought it was. Bummer it's at Jambo. I enjoyed doing it and staying to listen to the talks after in Kidani. I like the campfire at Kidani a bit more too so that'll be too much back and forth. Hmmm.....

    AKL lovers!

    I'll be honest if at Jambo, I don't like the savanna as much. For us the savanna view at Kidani is worth it. I'm halway regretting not getting a savanna view next month when we go. If you are in your room a lot it is very nice. The resort activity list is insanely long and there is so much we...

    Copper Creek Studio Villa - Room Suggestions

    It's not long at all. Though I think Kidani's long walk is an illusion as it's only .2 mile long. But CCV is no where near that. You'll walk further to get to the bus or boat really from the lobby. Rooms facing Bay Lake will see the sunrise. In both resorts not all would see it well. We could...

    1st trip—Picked Poly over Beach Club and Contemporary

    The walk isn't pleasant in super high temps with no clouds or bad weather. Lines for the monorail get long during those times, so see try the other first lol

    Best way to request a room location?

    Reports are earlier than that for assigning. Talking in person at the front desk during check in can help at times though if you don't do it early enough or don't like what you get when you arrive. Though waiting until later in the day won't help either.

    Best way to request a room location?

    For OKW I would request a specific area. When I check in online at OKW I choose Peninsular area even though we are booked in Hospitality House. Peninsular area actually have 4 HH buildings. Since I do it through DVC I also chat with MS to let them know my request. You can also call and let them...

    PO Riverside Vs Wilderness lodge

    If you spend any time in the rooms or resort relaxing I'd say it is worth it. If you only really sleep in your room and maybe a little pool time, location really doesn't matter. I do like transportation at WL a lot though. We are back there there year for one of our trips.

    Copper Creek Studio Villa - Room Suggestions

    CCV is not a large resort and there are 2 elevators that can be used. I'd ask for an upper floor but not top floor. The furthest walk from an elevator is very short. When we got stuck in the rain at Geyser Point, we ran to the nearest exterior door and walked to the elevator to get up to our...

    Best resort for a girls trip?

    Before you rent, look at the differences in the room. No real 2 beds in most studios. No housekeeping. No extra adult fees etc

    Disney Dining Plus Plan

    They already have a 3 meal a day plan so this sounds like it would be between the regular and deluxe. Good for those who do breakast/brunch and dinner. We don't do even one TS a day but this would be a good in between for many. We don't spend all day at parks though so it's a food amount...

    Best Resorts

    People have their own likes and dislikes. People travel and vacation differently too. So while I do not care at all for the themes of the values, I would never flame anyone for it. I'm a DVC member so I'm kind of into those locations with those I have my favorites and my least favorites. Oddly...

    Best resort for a girls trip?

    For something big I love the Polynesian for ambiance and location The Gran Destino Tower is pretty awesome too.
