Boat ride to MK was lovely but found the bus service to other parks a bit hit or miss. I still love walking round there but don't think I would go back again :frown: :frown:
    Thanks for reply. Do you think it will have improved any since your visit? Pools are not important since we don't swim.

    We stayed here back in May 2011 for the first and only time. The resort grounds are beautiful as is the lobby. We had a two bedroom villa in the DVC wing and while the room was large and spacious it was a bit run down. This side of the resort is very quiet and the quiet pool is nice. The main pool was noisy. We loved picking up a boat to MK and to The Contemporary/Fort Wilderness. There is also a nice walking path from the Lodge to FW. During our stay the buses seemed to run at normal increments.

    Over all is was a nice experience but nothing special or out of the ordinary. We would stay here again but would not be in our top choices.

    I'm pretty sure the bus service has improved a lot since then but I still wouldn't go back to Whispering Canyon, the food just wasn't good.

    Will he let you have a villa at the Beach Club, I think you would like it









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    We've pretty much decided on WL/WLV as we love trees and wood.
