What are the rooms like?
Our rooms are best described as “Bed & Breakfast” type. There are 4 bedrooms in the lodge plus 3 separate cabins. All rooms and cabins are shared occupancy. You may request a particular room, but we can’t guarantee that youll end up with that room. We must wait and see how many couples, men and women are in the group before we can assign rooms. Most rooms sleep two; one room is a single; one room is a triple. Couples will always have their own room or cabin, of course.
There are 586 rooms. Each room is among the largest at WDW (480 square feet) and has two queen sized beds and a day bed/sleeper sofa. There is also a sitting area that includes a table and chairs. The bathrooms are big and include double sinks/vanities. Each room has a large closet, dressers, a night stand and a color TV. Each room has either a patio or a private balcony with two chairs and a table. Other ammenities include: coffee maker, refrigerator, in-room safe, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, in-room movies, internet access ($6.95/day if used) and transportation to WDW theme parks. Five family suites are available that sleep 6 persons and six family suites will sleep 8 persons.
