A little bit of news for those who may not know: There's a new GM for the Lodge properties (Wilderness Lodge, Boulder Ridge, and Copper Creek). Her name is Sheryl Koenes. Don't know anything about her but I noticed that she has apparently instructed bell services to allow guests use of the luggage carts and I saw a number of guests shlepping their own stuff around the resort. Not sure if I think this is good or bad. It's not something you expect to see at a deluxe resort but it does allow frugal folks to save a few dollars on tips,

My two cents. If you can afford DVC or to stay at a Deluxe hotel, you can afford to tip bell services.

Don’t be cheap.

    Just wondering if Coke Zero is available for a refillable mug at Roaring Fork? Thanks!

    How hard is it to get a Copper Creek cabin at the 7 month window in October? Is it hard at the 11 month mark? We usually vacation for 5 nights in early October close to Columbus Day. Thinking about buying into Riviera but if the 7 month window doesn’t work for cabins, may need to buy CCV instead. Love CCV more but they increased the direct price.
    It can be done but pretty hard during the time frame you want to go. You can always waitlist.

    I’m fine, and yourself? Did you pass ROFR?
    Hello! Good to hear! I’m fine, thank you! No, not yet!! I’m on pins and needles. Day 18. Seems like people are just getting notified in our ‘date sent’ timeframe. I’m hoping in the next day or two!!!

    Or you might be a person who prefers lugging your own stuff, especially if it's just a couple of suitcases, or if there is something special you want to carry. We don't borrow luggage dollies, but I'd say a third of our visits we haul our own stuff for various reasons. The other two-thirds we use bell services.
