    Free wifi.

    On a recent show Lou indicated that Disney was experimenting with free wifi at the World of Sports complex.

    Though I did not know this before, on my last trip to the World I was told by CMs at the Wilderness Lodge that there was also free wifi available at the Contemporary. It was only available in the lobby or in the business conference area, but that's certainly better than the near criminal $10/day that Disney wants to charge.

    It sure is correct:

    • Front desk sitting area, 14th Floor Concierge - sitting area, Outer Rim Bar (near Concourse Steakhouse), 1st Floor Convention Center Lobby, 2nd Floor Convention Center Lobby, Feature Pool
    The Beach Club also has free wi-fi:

    AllEarsNet says these locations are correct, but that the access costs $4.99 for an hour or $9.95 for 24 contiguous hours.

    WDW Swan also offers Wi-Fi in the lobby area across from the Business Center Desk through a separate vendor that charges per minute or through a longer-time plan. Ask at the hotel's Business Center for details.
    Unless they recently changed it to Free access, I would expect to pay these rates.
