I have written many times that most of my trips to Walt Disney World are last minute. Well, this is the mother of last minute trips for even me. I found out today that I get to go to my favorite place in the world on Sunday. Yes, the Sunday in 3 days.
I got on the Internet to book a room and guess what? There’s little availability. I didn’t want to break the bank on this trip. I would have been thrilled to stay Value. No Luck — even when I broke the 4 night trip into 2 night stays. So, I am forced to stay Deluxe.
I will arrive late Sunday night and enjoy a 2 night stay at the Contemporary. In all of my trips to WDW I have never stayed here. I am ecstatic and I got a great Annual Passholder rate. The last two nights I will stay at the Wilderness Lodge. I know the “Unofficial Guide” guru, Len Testa, often refers to the Wilderness Lodge as a Moderate Deluxe, I still love it. My other options were the Beach Club and the Grand Floridian. They were more than I wanted to pay for this last minute trip and I want to be able to go back again and again.
I have yet to make a dining reservation, but will let you know what you can expect if you find yourself with a very, very, last minute trip to Walt Disney World. So far so good, I have a place to rest my head and hope to have magical dreams.
