    Was this during a “busy” time of day? We tend to check in at off times and have always been able to dodge them. The sole exception was at prime check in time - maybe 3 or 4:00 pm when there were lurking vultures with clipboards. One of them said something to me about a parking pass and I blurted out that I didn’t need one and basically beat pavement out the door after that.
    Could you just say to them: "I'm already an owner" ? Or, is there something about the check-in process that makes it obvious who the non-owners are? (might be an obvious answer - sorry, my first stay at WBC will be next summer)

    No, they badger the owners as well unfortunately. They call it an "owners update" and try to sell you more points under the guise of just giving you info.

    A friend of mine just booked WBC for June. I have only ever stayed on property. I know she can make FP at 60 days, but is she able to make length of stay ADRs at 180 days or will she have to do it one day at a time?

    She can’t make FP more than 30 days out unless she is performing some other kind of trickery. WBC is considered offsite so you only get 30 day FP.

    She can make ADR reservations though several months out. I’m not sure how long but we make them 3 or 4 months out typically if I remember correctly.

    thanks, I thought Bonnet Creek was one of the resorts Disney granted 60 day FP to. I know she can make ADRs at 180 days, just wondering if she can do the entire week at 180 days or if she’ll have to do it one day at a time like offsite FP.

    which tower would you say is the quietest?
    I looked at the map to refresh my memory and, amazingly, I would rank them quietest to busy in exactly numerical order except for the last two:

    1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 5

    Then you have the main building, which probably falls around the middle.

    We’ve stayed at WBC six times and have never been bothered. Don’t go to the “parking pass” desk and either don’t answer the phone or unplug it altogether. We do that latter! We got these tips from this thread 😉

    A few questions for a WBC newbie
    Easiest to use LYFT to the parks? or drive yourself?
    Are there extra fees for all the amenities??
    Go to the grocery store or delivery?
    Thanks

    1. Both are easy. Minnie Van service is also available.
    2. No extra fees. Some activities, such as ice cream social and crafts, have a fee.
    3. Delivery services abound. I prefer to get my own.

    Does anyone know what the on site WDW ticket pricing is? Arriving Thursday to WBC but the concierge said I had to be there in person to hear pricing. Was planning to get the after 12 pm passes from Disney if there’s not a discount or if it involves timeshare presentation.

    One day at a time. Also for FP she'll have to make those one day at a time at 30 days. Unless like someone else said she's actually at the Hilton Bonnet Creek hote.

    Has anyone ever rented more than 1 unit at WBC and gotten them close together? I have a group of 6 women going on Monday. I rented a 3 bedroom deluxe and realized a few of us would have to share a bed. I was able to book a 2nd 3 bedroom so we can all have our own room but I really don't want to be too far away from each other!
