Hello all! This November (next month! so excited!!!). will be mine and my mom’s first ever trip to WDW. We’ve been to DL 3 times with my kids and nieces and nephews when they were younger, but it’s been quite a few years. I’ve learned a lot so far reading all your posts and would love some feedback on a few things!
This is a truly trip of a lifetime for myself and my mom…we’ve only been dreaming of it for, say, 20 years or so! Our trip is planned for Nov 14-21st staying at Wilderness Lodge. We have our FPP and ADR all done, as well as our touring plans set. We will not have a car available to us and are planning on using Disney transportation, Uber or cab services as needed. This is more of a splurge trip so while I’m not rolling in the dough, I don’t plan on pinching every penny either. I have (I hope, wisely) built in a break into each days plans as neither of us are spring chickens (I am 45, my mom almost 70) anymore and I don’t want to set a breakneck pace :). We are doing Universal for a couple days before we head to DW as well so this is a full, full trip. All that said, here are my questions:
Our last day, the 21st, we have to check out at 11am but our flight isn’t till 6. I was thinking of getting us some kind of spa treatment for the afternoon as a lovely ending note to our trip. Any suggestions? Saratoga looks like a great spa but would it be a pain to travel there? How long would it take by bus? By cab?
We’ve made a room request of higher floor, closer to elevators but we’ve only booked a standard room. I’d like a room that’s not too noisy but isn’t a million mile trek to the lobby either. Should we request a specific room? Call the hotel itself and ask for a suggestion?
I’d love to make this trip as magical as possible for my mom. Can anyone suggest some ideas? I am so out of my league here!
Thank you in advance for your help and input and for sharing the Disney love!
