It is without a doubt our favorite. That goes for both the main lodge and the DVC lodge. We enjoy it because it is off the beaten path that the resort is pure peace and quiet from the excitement in the parks.
We have never had a transportation problem. Buses are always frequent and the boats run regularly. Just watch the boat schedule. There are some direct between MK and WL all day long and others that reverse the course mid day. The route was WL, MK, CR, FW, WL in the AM. Then it went WL, FW, CR, MK, WL in the PM.
If you have time for a relaxing afternoon rent bikes from WL and ride the path back to FW and spend time in FW. We spent 5 relaxing hours last trip.
When you check in remember to have everyone rub Humphry’s nose. Humphry is the bear at the bottom of the totem pole w/ Mickey, Donald and Goofy just to the left of the check in desk. It is said that rubbing Humphry’s nose will bring you good luck during your trip.
