    Re: Animal Kingdom Lodge or Wilderness Lodge?

    As a side note - make sure your courtyard view is, indeed, courtyard - facing the WL waterfall, main pool and hot tubs. We booked courtyard this past trip and got stuck in a room that barely looked over the villas pool. Because we could see a hint of the villas pool over the trees, that room has been reclassified as "courtyard" (even though all we really saw from our room were trees). Since courtyard view rooms are more expensive than woods view, make sure that you are getting the correct view that is worth the extra money.

    On that same note, I always go with the standard room, and the last time I stayed at the Wilderness Lodge, we got a view of the drainage ditch/water system. It also happened to have a view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks, since they would shoot over the trees. So the view is always arbitrary in my opinion.

    Considering your friends are at Ft. Wilderness, WL is a good choice. Either hotel is nice, but they also have a walking trail to Ft. Wilderness, I think it's about a mile long, so that's an option too. Also, if your friends are guests at FW, and you're going to the pool with them, I see no reason why reason why you couldn't use their pool.
