I am the same way. I need circulation at night! I was worried about this too...

Don't worry! The rooms certainly get cold enough! We had the thermostat set to 71 degrees at night, and it was cold enough. It goes lower...down to 60...and when it's down there, it's FREEZING in the room. We set it down to 65 a few times while we were doing our hair (had two hair dryers going and it got hot in there) and it got cold QUICK in there...so much that I had to put on a sweater. You can also set the fan to ON all the time, vs. AUTO. This way, there will always be air blowing out the big vent. If you sleep in the bed closest to the balcony, you will have more air hitting you from the vent too.

One thing I can suggest, since you have an MK view room is, if you will be back for your room in the afternoon, before you leave for the evening, CLOSE the curtains (the heavy ones). The setting sun hits right into the rooms, and it's HOT. It'll keep your room cooler if you keep the curtains closed in the late afternoon/early evening. Those blackout curtains work REALLY well.

We were also given one of the best tables in the house. The castle was right there. Two years prior we were staying at the Polynesain and we did not have foil castles all over our table and our table was one row over from the window, but still a fabulous table. I had no complaints!
That sounds amazing and I had no idea they ever done something like that before, so I wonder how they knew you were staying at the Contemporary?

I do not know. The waiter just told us that since we were guests of the Contemporary we got the foil castles on our table. They were good sized foil castles too. It was a wonderful surprise and it was AMAZING! Maybe someone eles on here would have an idea how the restaurant knew we were guests staying at the Contemporary?

Usually they ask where you are staying when you make your dining reservations, do you remember giving the CM that info when you made your reservation? It would be in the notes on the restaurant's system.

We had foil castles on the table at Cali Grill a couple of weeks ago, I had mentioned that one of our party was celebrating his birthday and very first trip to Disney that week. It was a fun touch!

MY DH made the dinner reservations. That makes perfect sense, mystery solved. It was a fun touch! Thank you!
