Thank you...8 days to go!!

The only way to get three bedrooms is to book the two bedroom and the one bedroom but then you can't get the presidential. Of course you could always book the presidential and the one bedroom but they wouldn't be connecting. Just thought I would post this info in case anyone was interested.
Did they quote you a price per night? Just curious.

How exciting for you. Wish you well. Something on my bucket list but I'm 61 and thinking time is running out! You go for it!

Umbrella/pool/cabana questions

What an awesome thread full of unlimited info!
Just wondering, at the main pool are there plenty of umbrellas to go around?
Do they have waitresses coming around asking if you would like anything to eat or drink? If not, is there any service if you rent a cabana?

Thanks!

The one bedroom starts at $1452/night, two bedroom $2055/night and presidential starts at $2271/night. It goes up depending on season and weekday/weekend.

I'm sorry, but I don't. But, there are also great breakfast choices nearby: The Wave has a great breakfast menu and buffet (photos on first page), Contempo Cafe and Chef Mickey's also serve breakfast. You're just a monorail ride away from Kona and 'Ohana at Poly, The GF Cafe has a lovely breakfast and a character breakfast at 1900. You can even take the boat over to WL and eat at Whispering Canyon or Trail's End at FW (plus the quick serves at WL, Poly and GF).

Thank you, sydjim! Servers sure would be great at the pool, however, none of the WDW resorts have any. However, the cabana does have the option of having food brought to you from room service.

From contemporaryresort.net:

If Guests are interested in confirming poolside dining options in their
Cabana, they may order directly using the house phone in the Cabana or
can call in advance at 407 824-1786.

Have you considered a Grand Villa at BLT?

Thank you! I have actually been a Disney TA for a while now but Disney offers a traning program a couple of times a year for agents where they get to do site inspections and seminars at the resorts. Can't wait!


How great! What a perfect place to train - good luck with your new career (JK!)[/QUOTE]

Do they still have the Disney College of Knowledge? I had to do that when I was a TA for AAA ( a lifetime ago). I wasn't able to go on the FAM trip when it was offered

Have a great time! We are exciting to be going back in less than a week!!!

Absolutely, and I think it is the cheapest buffet on property.
