I would say it took about 20 minutes total because the bus did not spend to much time at the Contemporary and the Wilderness Lodge, in terms of waiting for any extra guests running to catch the bus.
Thanks so much! I think no matter what the bus at the CR has to be better than the All Stars were. We just can't wait to walk to the MK too!!!!

Thanks again!

Do you think Chef Mickey's Express would have the kiosks for ordering?

I was just wondering when Chef Mickey's Express opens up later this year, do you think they will have those kiosks like they have at Captin Cook's in the Polynesian where you order all your main food items? My thinking is since Captin Cook's went threw that major renovation would that be something they are willing to try at Chef Mickey's Express, since it would be a brand new location.

Kelley, they will close the Concourse Steak House in May (some have said June) and start on CME. Then the 4th floor should be done. It should all be finished by December when you arrive.

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

OMG!
I just booked our September stay at the contemporary!! I have always wanted to stay here but could never afford it in my past trips! I am soo excited. The cast member gave me a great package deal with dining and 7 park hopper tickets (2 adult, 2 kids) MK tower view (requested 11th floor)...all for 3400.00! Thats a savings of 500.00....I was waiting for the free dining promo but now I dont have to since it will be included in this package!

Im sooo excited.

Concourse Steak House will be replaced by Chef Mickey's Express Counter Service to replace the old Food and Fun Center. The Wave Restaurant (Table Service, Asian Theme) will go on the 1st floor wher F&FC was. The Arcade also moved to the 4th floor. Right now it is all scheduled to be done by August, but I think it may be a bit longer. Please see the first post for very detailed info on all the renovations at the CR and the construction time-line. It has tons of good info and links to pictures.

BTW, has anyone told you that you look like Vanna White?

Thanks triplfigs! I will definitly go back and check out the first post. I am so new to CR that I have absolutly no idea about anything. Im just glad I talked my husband, sister and BIL into upgrading from a MOD to THIS deluxe!

No, no one has ever said I looked like Vanna White LOL, guess I will have to ask my husband what he thinks about that.

You're going to LOVE the CR. We've stayed at the GF, Poly, and CR, and the CR is our favorite. This trip, we're doing a split stay with the Beach Club too so my triplets can swim at Storm Along Bay.
