I assume you have Globalist status (based on programs listed under your username). This was on a stay paid with points or a stay paid with cash? If a points stay, the waived resort fee and valet would be standard Globalist benefits.

I just booked a 4-night stay here for my wife and 1.5 year old this coming September (9/11-9/15). We had 4 free night awards to burn and this seems like a good use. We'll probably mostly stay on property, but will maybe hop over to Animal Kingdom for an afternoon.

From everything I've been able to gather, the crowds do die down a bit after Labor Day. For anyone that has visited the hotel (and the parks) in mid-September, can you shed some light on what the crowds are like?

Hi,

Mid september should be busy but quieter than July -august. However if you have not been to WDW for a while , I would read up on the park reservation process ( currently I think you need to make a reservation for a specific date to access the park as Disney has limited capacity in these covid times and some live shows are cancelled). Disney may ramp up capacity as summer approaches/ vaccinations step up and covid cases hopefully fall.

It is still going to be hot but the humidity will be a bit less. than july/august.

Regards

TBS

September is the absolute slowest month of the year at WDW, I was just looking at renting a Disney Vacation Club property and September is the cheapest month.

I would call and ask. The times always change and I've seen it only a few times a day, depending upon the season and occupancy. The hotel is right on the edge of Disney property and you can probably uber or cab it to Disney Springs and take a bus to the park you'd like to visit.

Very true. But it's also hurricane season I've had to cancel a few trips in September because, as my luck would have it, hurricanes pointed themselves at Orlando during my dates. One year I managed to get really inexpensive tickets for right after labor day... and a hurricane hit. I rescheduled for 2 weeks later... another hurricane. I finally rescheduled for late October and lost my cheapo seats.

Iím planning a trip here. I have a 8 year old, 5 year old and 2 year old. I have two nights in November. Using two cat 4 certs. Globalist. Is the property a destination in itself for a weekend? Or do I need to look into Disney or animal kingdom? We live in Los Angeles so we can go to Disneyland. Any recommended activities on or off property?

Normally, enough to do if you love the pool, which is not heated so somewhat cool in May (never been in August). The property is large and can do bike rides, pitch and put, maybe another game. But for active days that donít involve hanging by the pool, maybe not.

odd that one would travel a distance to Orlando as a destination though without getting off property. I go for business and avoid the theme parks but would go if I had kids.

you should check with the hotel to see hay is being offered when you go. My experience is pre COVID.

There is definitely plenty to do with children. The smaller pool is definitely heated. There is a beach area for the children to play. The lake has non-motorized water sports and there is biking. Last visit the climbing walls were closed due to covid however by November I imagine they will be reopened. At night there is a fire pit to toast marshmallows. Nights when I was last there they had movies by the pool.

Depends what u like to do. One trip we stayed 2 nights and didn't leave the property and were very busy and didn't get to do all we wanted. My kids were older and very active though. Also all our trips were pre covid. We spent time trying the various watersports - my DD loved the aquabike and also wanted us all to paddleboat. Then we had to try out the SUPs and I wanted some time kayaking and canoeing.

Chatted with the parrot, played poolside games to win prizes (incl tokens to the arcade so we went there to play), went swimming and hot tubbing (small pool is heated, big pool is chilly but fun), went up the climbing wall, took out the surrey bike, played pitch and putt golf, rode bikes to the tennis courts, ran out of time to try the driving range or play tennis. Also fit in evening strolls around the pretty grounds. Spent some time in the gym, then more swimming. We made very good use of the property amenities LOL! If you get bored, there is (at least there used to be) a free shuttle to the Outlet Mall.

That said, we are Disney geeks and made sure to fit in Disney time later in the trip.
