Our first stay at Wilderness Lodge is currently scheduled for November 9-15. I know renovations are scheduled to start on October 26, 2015. I’ve called twice to try to find out about how it is going to impact our stay and see about availability at other resorts. The first agent was looking at moving us to ASSports so I got off the phone fast! The second agent assured us that our stay in the Lodge itself would be minimally impacted by the construction since it is starting at the quiet pool by VWL. I’ve now heard that they are calling DVC guests at VWL about changing resorts due to the construction. We’ve never stayed at WL, so should I be worried about the construction or is the pool by VWL far enough away from WL that we’ll be fine?
Combined with our last hellish stay at POP (room in middle of Argentinean quinceanera trip group, generally kept up until about 3 am, request multiple times to change rooms refused saying there was nothing available and they could not assure a quiet room anywhere in the resort -??), if this trip goes south, my husband will never agree to another trip to WDW, so I’m stressing a bit.
