I am considering switching to CR but it is not available for my dates with discount. Is there any chance rooms will open up with new discount being released January 3??

We stayed at the contemporary last July and we loved it! Its clean and beautiful! The kids loved the pool with the waterslide! They are great with poolside games and activities for all ages. I would definilty book there again! But this time my husband wants to stay at the Wilderness Lodge which looks absolutly beautiful too! I just loved being right on the monorail! Have a great trip!

I wish we could take advantage of the Disney card members discount but unfortnatly my husband can not go during the times offered.

I believe it's permanent, but if I find a re-opening date, I'll post it.

Being able to walk to the MK is so convenient and you can still easily take the monorail over to the Poly for a bite to eat. The Bay Lake View rooms are our favorite. I think you'll love it!

CR fills fast since it's the most popular convention resort. Never give-up trying to get a discount though as guests cancel all the time.

Just rebooked our current CR TPV April reservation using the Disney Visa card. Also ordered our tix as well. Still trying to figure out exactly how much we saved (can't compare to the old because we were planning on dropping a day prior to this deal ....and it's TOO confusing for me lol), and the CM couldn't give me a %. Can anyone tell me what the tax rate is at WDW? I need to figure this out! LOL Thx!!

FWIW.....tried for BLT 1 BDRM TPV but they only had Standard View (due to special needs child and the fact that we spend LOTS of time in our room we could not take the chance of not having a view of the Castle).....so the CR it is!!! No complaints tho.....WE LOVE THE CR!!

Also is anyone at WDW using Fast Pass+? Or have you had to convert APs to paperless tickets/RF bracelets yet?

No one is using FP+. It hasn't been rolled out officially and the next round of testing hasn't been announced either. Stay tuned.

Though the RFID KTTW cards (for resort door entry and touch to pay) are being used by all resorts now.

As KOOK said, keep checking, people cancel all the time. But I will tell you when I booked my Feb trip I did so based on availability at CR figuring I would be able to move it to better dates for us, but nothing has come available so it looks like we will be sticking with the dates we booked.

I think the WDW tax rate is 12 or 12.5%. From what I saw on the Visa disc page CR was at the 20% discount.

I have been trying for a 1br at BLT but nothing has been offered with a discount so we are sticking to our TPV room as well We just learned that DS has wheat allergy and we were hoping to be able to do a bit more cooking ourselves, but no luck. DS is also on the autism spectrum and being able to watch the fireworks from CR and not have to deal with the noise and crowds was perfect! Have a great time!


38 DAYS TIL WE ARE BACK AT CR

Contemplating CR for Jan 2014. We stayed at AoA in a suite for our last trip & loved the space, however we have a toddler, a teenager and will hopefully valve an infant as well. My husband really wants to stay at the Contemporary for its location on the monorail and being able to walk to MK. He likes the idea of not having to get the kids in & out of strollers after a long day at the parks. I'm a little worried about costs, especially since he wants to do the Deluxe meal plan as well, but hoping the convenience would be worth the extra cash! In my dream scenario we'd have a MK view, but I think GV might be more affordable. Would GV or BL view be quieter with two little ones? I figure well be back for nap time int he afternoon, but likely out for dinner/parks at night most nights. Any advice?

We booked the Disney Visa promo for mid April and it was 20% off the room portion. Still trying to decide if the package is worth it. It's only $47 less than buying tix thru AAA and locks us into a package... We usually do room only and buy the tix on our own

Garden View definitely quieter, just request to not be on the pool side.

Thank you, but it's probably obvious I didn't take it. But, I did copy and paste it! I like how it shows off all of the BLT and CR grounds and Bay Lake, too.
