King bed as a request, perhaps... if we were lucky enough to get one, those rooms have daybeds, right? Do you or any of the fellow CR experts happen to know the prevalence of connecting doors in the Garden Wing?

I need some of this and I'll be perusing all the first page greatness you've shared with us.
Congratulations! Don't worry about the thread tag as your news bears repeating.

Our absolute favorite GW room was a ground floor room we had once that directly faced Bay Lake. Since it was on the end, I don't believe there was a connecting door - it was perfect. DD was able to walk right out to feed the ducks:

That is a great shot. Love that view in the evening over the lake. Your dd looks she was having a lot of fun. I hope those were not venomous ducks.

Thanks!
We stayed in a 1 BD villa and the chair did pull out into a bed just like WDWKOOK's picture shows.

The Agent Education Program just moved us from CR to AKL - boo! Looks like I will have to wait to do CR until 2014 when we are hoping to stay at BLT. Thanks, everyone!

I just posted this on my trip report but thought it was relevant here too

I just talked to our mousekeeper and she told me that the bed linens are staying the same (they are fairly new) but the mattresses and box springs are being replaced as well as the headboards and carpets. I talked with a manager who said the 11th and 12th floor are still considered construction zones so they cannot bring me up there

We really should start the "I saw venomous ducks at WDW" thread: They were ravenous and hissed! They even invaded the pools and jumped out of bushes. But, alas, it wasn't duck season so

Sunset and Bay Lake make for a great view.

Oh, darn! Well, hope you'll check back with us when it gets closer to BLT time.

You're welcome. It does show it sleeps 9 - maybe 2 are under 3? There is a king, a twin chair, a queen sofa and it then depends if it's a lock-off or not:

1 queen-size bed
1 full-size sofa bed (lockoff) or second queen-size bed (dedicated)*


* Slight variances exist between Lockoff and Dedicated Two Bedroom Villas. Members reserving a Two Bedroom Villa are assigned to either a Lockoff or Dedicated room at the time the reservations is secured. Contact Disney Vacation Club Member Services to confirm the type of villa reserved.

I found them one time over floating in the hot tub at the BWV side. I chased them out. No messes in the water, but it was really hot water. I didn't know how they floated in it without having duck soup.

Just got back from a 7 day stay in a 1BR at BLT and would be happy to answer any questions. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures before DB and I mussed up the room, but I can post pictures of the view from our lake view room if anyone is interested.

I am enjoying this thread!
DD and I are going to be in a Garden wing room for her 16th birthday over Thanksgiving!

Only drawback-we are currently booked at rack rate (!)

I am really hoping for some kind of discount to come out. I could not book bounceback when I was at POR a couple of weeks ago, since THanksgiving was blacked out.

Anyone have success booking CR with a discount over Thanksgiving in the past?

Oh, well, DD and I have been planning this trip for years, and I told her she could choose the resort, and she picked CR! So, discount or not- that's where we will be.
It will be so nice to be able to walk back to our room after a day in the MK without having to wait for transportation in Thanksgiving crowds!
