LOL! DS(24) says the cafe contempo is his favorite place to eat.

I tried to increase the size of the beer photo I have posted in the Fantasia Market section of the first page and I think the 6-pack of beer is either $13 or $15. I know that Garden Grocer has a minimum $40 purchase requirement and also a $12 delivery fee, plus optional tip.

You are awesome, thank you!! I didn't know about the minimum part. Pretty sure (or hoping) he doesn't want to buy $40 worth of beer. LOL

You're welcome

$40 for beer doesn't go that far at WDW. Have you considered Club Level? Unlimited adult beverages are included and can be stored in your room fridge - just sayin'

If I told my husband this we'd stay club level every time. We were reading about dinner shows for my oldest DS' birthday trip and he saw beer and wine was included and now just wants to keep going back to the shows! Can you see my eyes rolling over the computer?!

Does the Contemp have any viewing stations for MK's fireworks?

Outside on the North end of the Grand Canyon Concourse. Benches are set up, a very nice place to watch the fireworks from.

I wish I could've afforded CL but being I paid this off myself as a surprise for DH instead of taking it from our vacation fund, it just wasn't within my reach to do. Fortunately we don't drink that much beer/drinks and we're on the DxDP, so we're perfectly happy with our Deluxe TPV stay..its our first.

Hope it's tasteful and seamless. Maybe babyberger will get the elusive photos for us next month - no pressure
I'm very interested about the soft rehab as well. Very anxious for more info and pics!!

I'm also thinking of booking the Pirates and Pals fireworks voyage (or whatever it's called ) for our Dec. trip. Anyone ever done this before?

Yes, this is from the first page HERE:

WISHES NIGHTLY MK FIREWORKS last about 12 minutes. Preferred CR/BLT viewing locations:

~Magic Kingdom/Theme Park View Tower rooms/balconies.

~BLT Magic Kingdom/Theme Park View rooms/balconies and some Bay Lake View rooms on the north side.

~The beach.

~California Grill restaurant and observation deck (exclusively for guests with same-day reservations only).

~Fourth floor observation deck.

That's a great spot and it's also fun to go there during the day when it's usually empty and watch the monorail and lookout at Seven Seas Lagoon and the MK. I love that you still call it by its original name the Grand Canyon Concourse. Disney just calls it the 4th floor now

I'd love to hear your review of it. I've seen it several times and it looks like lots of fun, but I've wondered if it's appropriate for teens and adults or if it's intended audience are kids

Definitely will post our review. DH is almost as excited as DD, although he won't admit it.

I love that too. I didn't realize Disney stopped calling it that. It'll always be the Grand Canyon Concourse to me. I remember being totally awestruck by it the first time I stayed at CR way back in 1974.

That's so cute. Looking forward to your review - and some photos, perhaps

Oooo, do you have "vintage" CR photos?

On the CR/BLT map they give you it's now referred to as the 4th floor. I did find it on this post-Contempo Cafe map that's posted between BVG and the doors to the Skybridge:

We did the Pirates and Pals fireworks voyage back in 2010 and it was great! I haven't heard of any changes to it so it should still be great. I think Reid would really enjoy
