Welcome to the thread and thank you from NoVA

The view from the Atrium Club lounge is one of the best. You can watch Wishes from there every night and the EWP from your room if you're booked BLV - I think it's the best of both worlds. Happy planning! Speaking of which, I'm off to book some ADRs now...

The refurbishment of the 14th floor is supposed to be a soft and hard refurb. All other rooms are a soft one(linens, etc.).

I just showed him all the pictures! He's ready to go back to Disney! The food definitely helps! The man loves himself some food!

I 10000% agree - what a GREAT post. We're staying TPV in a couple of weeks and this just amp'd up the excitement!!!

If you don't mind 2 quick questions:

1. DH is a big peruser of TripAdvisor and said some of the pics he's seen posted of a Standard TPV are where it appears as if the person has to lean into/over the balcony railing and turn right/left to see the Castle. Is that the case with most TPV rooms??

2. Is there any kiosk or CS place anywhere in the hotel where he'll be able to get a fresh made-to-order burger/chicken fingers/fries type food? He's ultra picky and everything has to be plain-nothing on it.

TIA!! =)

Can anyone tell me what the price is to rent a cabana by the pool? Do they do full day and half day rentals? What are the hours?

Thanks!

1. Technically TPV at CR looks directly at the parking lot and seven seas lagoon. You will have to look right to see the castle but its not a lean or hard turn. It's more like looking across the street at a house a few doors down. BLT views are a bit closer but since the building is curved a few of the rooms on the ends require more of a turn to see the castle better. We love TPV both at CR and BLT and can't imagine booking anything else.

2. The contempo cafe should have burgers and chicken fingers, can't remember about fries. Never had a burger there but I'm sure they can make them plain.

I'm so glad you're even more excited, ErinsMommy and thank you for your sweet comment.

There are two QS options at CR: The Contempo Cafe offers chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers and Angus burgers, made-to-order and the QS by the pool (Sand Bar) also has burgers/fries. You can modify your CC meal on the kiosk and if you order by the pool, you can just tell the CM when you order that you want them plain.

Thanks!
Yes, you can rent for a full day or half-day, but I don't have 2013 pricing information so that's why I didn't put it on the first page. I believe this info. is from 2010 and for the Poly, but I think Poly and CR prices would be the same:

$110 (+ tax) for a half day (10 - 2 or 3 - 7)

$185 (+ tax) for a full day (10 - 7)

So glad you love it, DT83097. Sounds like this will be your first BLT stay, but it might not be your last

In an effort to save DH another hour or so at searching, what is the latest bar that would be open in the Contemporary (or even BLT, that a Contemporary guest can stop by) for a beer/mixed drink. Also how much would a 6 or 12 pack of beer cost at the Contemporary vs. ordering it from Garden Grocer.

TIA again!!

The Outer Rim bar is open until 10 - more details are on the first page under DINING. I can't answer your beer cost question, but maybe someone else can.

Thank you!! He was hoping to find a midnite+ bar to go to after we're all asleep.
