We upgraded!

So excited, we just upgraded to a TPV room for our trip Dec. 4-9! It will be me, DH (celebrating birthday on arrival day), DD#1 (surprise trip for her 5th birthday!), and DD#@ (will be 2.5). My girls have never been to WDW, DH went once when he was young, and I haven't been there in over a decade. Now I need to go back and read through the thread to get tips about which room to request. I just wanted to share my exciting news!

My DH loves the renting a boat idea so we may do that. Oh and parasailing! We were also planning on trying some of the lounges, but I didn't think to take the boat over to WL and FW for some more!

24 hours from now I plan to be on the People Mover after enjoying my delish taco salad from Peco Bill's!

Thanks again for your help and if you need me to check anything out or take any pics, I will be happy to oblige!
I am so envious that you will be on the PM today - and it's right across from my other favorite - CoP (I have many favorites.)

Safe travels and hope you'll be able to check-in with us soon with an update. Hope your DS is doing better.

Any WDW Resort is fine for the Log-orail so I just changed you to POR and added a day

Three more for the Log-orail!

Forgot to check-in earlier. We will be arriving this coming Thursday at the CR
5/16 - 5/25 (GW/GV).

Kook - Any guesstimates on when the soft good rehab might be done in the GW? I thought I saw on easywdw.com that the half closest to Bay Lake was being worked on now, but I might be completely wrong. I have a request in for a Bay Lake view (I realize that it's only a request), so I wonder if I will have any shot at all!

(Thanks for all you do on this thread! I read often, even though I'm not posting.)

Hello All!

My understanding is that the CR rooms were getting a refurb. Is that correct? And if so, are there any pics that you could direct me too? Thanks!!

Thinking of booking Atrium CL for our December trip, but was wondering what the differences are between Atrium CL and Tower CL. From what I've read on the first page of this thread, I'm thinking 12th floor Atrium CL and 14th floor Tower CL is similar to GF RPC and SL in that RPC has a larger lounge than SL (with Tower club having a larger lounge than Atrium club), the views are better (tower club being higher up with better a view of MK), guests staying RPC have access to both the RPC and SL lounges (guests staying Tower club having access to both lounges), and better location as RPC is in the main building (although this last comparison doesn't really count as both CLs at CR are located in the tower). I think I remember reading that Atrium CL had limited offerings in the past, but has changed and now has the same offerings as Tower CL, is this correct? Also, are there regular rooms on the 14th floor or just suites? Anytime I price out the CR, I only see options for Atrium CL and never Tower CL. After Atrium CL MK view, it goes up to GW 1 bedroom suites with no option for Tower CL. TIA for any input .

I have always wondered this too. How does one actually go about booking a regular room on the Tower level? Also to PP I'm pretty sure the Atrium lounge is bigger than the Tower lounge.

I called and booked two regular rooms on the 14th floor. The catch is you can't be guaranteed the view. There are five standard rooms on the 14th floor. Four of them are on the MK side. One is Bay Lake. This means if course that the odds are in your favor to get MK view but you could get Bay Lake and you are not allowed to book one or the other. The Atrium Lounge is bigger but both have the same service and items. Tower Club guests are allowed to use both lounges. There are fewer guests on the 14th floor so the lounge should not be crowded even though it is smaller. Balconies are much bigger on the 14th floor.

We had a one bedroom suite plus two standard tower rooms booked for July 18-21, 2014 because the two bedroom was not available all three days. We went back and changed the reservation to keeping this configuration the first night and then for the other two nights the people in the two standard rooms are moving to the two bedroom suite. I'll be able to take pictures of all three type rooms now.
