    WiFi at WDW

    I have heard on-line that there is free Wi-Fi in various places throughout the resort. But I can't find specifics other than IN the parks

    What I really want to know (and am hoping is the case) is if they have WiFi at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Anyone know if this is or isn't the case? What ARE the hotels that have WiFi in the common areas?

    (not gonna pack the laptop if I can't get the free WiFi)

    From my experiences, the ONLY place at WDW with free wifi is at the cafe at Wide World of Sports. The resorts themselves have wired Internet at an additional charge.

    Re: WiFi at WDW

    There are two things that annoy me about my favorite resort...

    1. Terrible coffee
    2. No internet access without paying fees.

    I'm sorry, you're going to be stuck when you get there, I really am. However, I will mention that McDonald's does have free wifi in many of their restaurants now, or are supposed to. There is one across the street from the All Star resorts, should you need to check in. However, I've not been able to check to see if this has been upgraded or not.

    And don't even get me started on coffee, my lifeblood.

    If you do find wifi, please, please, post information.

    Peace,

    I'm sure there's WiFi around the resort, but it's Disney's private line that's used for cash registers.

    Re: WiFi at WDW

    There's been a thread on this before (try searching), and I believe it concluded that free WiFi is generally not available except in a few unusual, specific locations (such as WWS complex listed above).

    For the record, Las Vegas also have very little free WiFi, and I would believe for what is probably the same reason: if you're surfing the net for free, you're not out there spending money.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Thanks for the insight folks, but this is what I've read...

    Has no one been recently to tell me where these "common areas at the resort" are?

    Never mind...Found the answer and (just like y'all said) it wasn't the one I was hoping for...

    Oh there's plenty of wifi (my iPhone has picked several different networks at DTD), but no FREE wifi.

    Want free wifi? Stay at the Holiday Inn on Hotel Plaza Dr.
