Or if the manager is standing behind them. 🙃
lol, true.

I’m sure the original idea of ‘sandwiching’ the $ between CC & photo ID was to somewhat obscure the money. However, nearly every time in Vegas, the clerk removes the $, opens it up and places on the counter in front of them. Cameras are everywhere there

I am wanting to know about the amount of 3-bedrooms they have. I know the most common is 2, but I just wonder how many 3-bedroom units they have.

Our original reservation was at SVR but RCI upgraded us to Bonnet Creek.
I am traveling with young children, that still take naps. Which tower would be best for us?

Also, at SVR the balconies were screened in, so I wasn't worried about them. Although I'd like a nice view, preferably of the pool or fireworks, I don't think I would like to be too high up. Which floor would be best?

    IS WBC considered "on property"? Do we receive magic bands or any other onsite amenity?
    WBC is not on property. It is next door to the Carribean Beach resort, and surrounded by Disney property, but is not a Disney resort and you receive no Disney amenities.

    Anyone can put their tickets on a magic band, however, you would have to buy them or use one from a previous trip. You won't get one for staying at WBC.

    Almost every room has a view of either the pools or fireworks and many have views of both. As for naps, the resort is easy to get in an out of and has speedy elevators. The balconies all have railings, of course.

    If we wanted to do close to a week at the end of May, first of June, when is the best time to book? Is this a high demand time, or maybe just a high demand time for certain units. I would love a 3-bedroom, but would take a 2-bedroom, on the sixth floor or below.

    Does anyone know in which buildings the 3-bedroom units are located? Are there a good many of these and are they easy or perhaps harder to rent one? Are these units on the lower levels of the buildings or mostly on the higher levels?
    We had a 3-bedroom unit in Tower 5 on a higher level. It was nice, but they seem to get rented out pretty quickly. There were 6 adults, 2 kids, and a baby -- we were very comfortable! Not cramped at all :)

    Ya, I have a feeling our chances are better with a 2-bedroom, and we can work with that. But I am concerned about the possibilities of being put on a high floor. The anxiety is gives me is awful. But I think more people ask for a higher floor than a lower one, right?

    How comfortable are the sleeper couches in the living rooms? This will be a game changer if not too comfortable. Would most certainly need a 3-bedroom if not.

    I feel most people ask for a higher up floor preferring the view and less ground traffic noise. So you would probable be ok with getting a room lower down. I know last time we checked in we were offered the second floor parking lot view but advised we didnt mind waiting if it meant we could possibly get a higher floor. They were unable to accomodate us with a higher floor as they were booked full. Which was fine. As far as the ratio of 3 bedroom units per floor/tower.....thats an interesting question. Ill be there in Sept and will ask around.

    Ok, thanks. I will only need a 3-bedroom if the sleeper couch is not very comfortable, and I am betting they aren't.

    A sleeper sofa, is a sleeper sofa is a sleeper sofa. If you're staying 1 or 2 nights the sleeper sofa is ok. Anything over that I would get the 3 bdrm, especially if the sleeper sofa is for anyone over 10 yrs of age.

    I have a few questions about booking WBC:
    1) If I book through their website directly will I have to sit through a timeshare presentation?
    2) If I book through a different website besides theirs, are there any restrictions or exclusions from the amenities? (For example, if we were to go to a different property as a guest of a relative there are amenities we could get as guests of the owners BUT if you stay there and aren't an owner or guest of one you have to pay for the amenities.)

    Is there anything I should know about booking through them vs. booking through another site? My husband prefers to go direct although it does look like other sites have our dates slightly cheaper. We're not interested at all in a timeshare presentation OR in purchasing a timeshare.

    It is possible to book a discounted rate through Wyndham timeshares that will require you to attend a presentation - usually this will be disclosed in fine print but you can usually tell if the price is “too good to be true” (usually something like a promotional rate of $299 for a stay or something like that). If you book directly through the website usually the only drawback is the price is higher than you’d pay for a stay through a mega renter. If you’re paying the prevailing rate through Wyndham there’s no obligation to attend a timeshare pitch.

    Unless you book one of those promotional rates that require a presentation, you are not obligated to attend one. They will try to get you to attend one when you check in if you visit the activities/parking pass desk. I always dodge it and leave out the side door. You DONT need a parking pass. It’s the timeshare desk. I’ve never had a problem dodging them at WBC, and the only unpleasant experience I had with Wyndham timeshares was at Clearwater Beach where there’s not a separate timeshare counter.

    All amenities are available to you as a “guest” of an owner as well as booked directly through Wyndham. Some recreation activities require a fee but you’ll see that disclosed (like a sundae bar with an asterisk by it or similar).

    This is very helpful! Thank you so much!

    I don't think that it's a promotional rate or anything. We're going in Feb 2020 and it's showing $1600 for a 2BR for the week with 25% off for booking in advance. I will read the fine print, though.

    I know check in is at like 4, but I wonder how often they are able to get guest in their rooms early. I know the past few trips with Disney we got in around 1:30, but I had a couple of times we got in before 11 am. I guess it just depends on the day and the guest coming and going, as with Disney resorts.

    And I wonder if you arrive very early if that might help your chances of a request for tower location.
