Returning to WH after 7 years..... What Has Changed?

We were last at Whitehouse in April 2007 and are thrilled to be returning to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary the beginning of December 2014. We still refer to our 2007 trip as the best vacation of our lives. What changes can we expect to see and experience at the resort? We are thinking of taking the helicopter in this time but I'm not convinced its worth the extra $$.

RN, maybe start with looking thru a couple of the SWH forums for tons of current info and pictures. Lots has change and been upgrading since 2007. The heli is very expensive, but VERY nice and you get to the WH in under 20 minutes. We have done the heli once and the free shuttle all the other times. Feel free to ask specific questions if you like after checking out the many great SWH forums. I do have a recent set of pictures if you'd like. Good luck on your research.

Hello RN!

RandB started a great post about what is new a while ago - take a look - there are many pages and will give you lots of good reading!


We took the helicopter as a special "treat" when we went to SWH. Hubby loved it and thought the experience and the short travel time (ours was 17 minutes!) was worth the money. He still talks about the views! I do not do well with heights and struggled a bit. We only took it one way (arrival) and took the shuttle on the return. I didn't mind the shuttle at all. It was a large comfortable air conditioned bus. I am thinking of booking the heli for hubby when we return for his b-day but I think for our next trip we will either use the shuttle or just a private driver.

Whatever you decide - have a fantastic vacation!
