Does anyone have a room suggestion for a BLV or are they all basically the same?

Does CL have BLV?

CR's Atruim club has 2 bookable categories.

STD is the BLV and the other is MKV.

The view pretty much the same. Some people prefer higher floors or closer to BLT end.

How did I get a 2bdrm LV villa for 12/24-1/1??? Well I booked as a back up in case I can't get into GF villa . We usually get the 1 bdrm for Thanksgiving but dd will be in college this year and wants to come home for it. Since ds gets 2 full weeks for winter holiday this year I am thinking of a December visit.

Got lucky last year and got a 2bdrm and WOW we loved it. It would be hard to go back to 1 bdrm now.

MIL and FIL live in Florida and since illness means can't come up for summer this year and are missing graduation's thought this might cheer them up.

Going to try to get GF first then this is back up, but a really really awesome backuo

Please add me on to the guest list, we will be staying in the tower mk view Aug 10-16. Our party includes me, DH, DD, and her boyfriend.

I also have a question, we have stayed at CR but that has been some years back and after looking at your pictures it looks like the daybed isn't as long as it use to be. My question is can anyone tell me if it is the same size as BC daybeds? DD's boyfriend has slept on theirs and he was fine.

We're staying at CR Aug 26-29. I would like to go to The Wave for breakfast each day, but I don't necessarily want to lock in an ADR time (not sure which parks we'll be doing). Will it be a problem to walk up for breakfast?

TIA

We actually felt that the day beds at the CR were bigger and more comfortable than those at YC (which I am guessing would be similar to BC).

We had no problem walking up the two times we went last trip. Did not have to wait either time.

Hi there, We are planning our son's HS graduation trip for next year and he has no idea that we are going to be booking the CR tower room. Just waiting for the 2014 packages to come out. Not sure if we want to include CL or not. Instead of booking CL we may book a fireworks cruise instead. But then again CL is also a nice treat that will last the whole trip. May be worth it for us. Such decisions but really great ones.

I viewed the map on the first page and I am assuming that the self parking is under the #9 on the map. If anyone can verify this it would be greatly appreciated. TIA

I remember the self parking really being out there but since we don't plan on really driving we are ok with that.. I think we will drive to DTD since the service the bus service seems slow for this destination from any resort plus we will drive to POR where I have a surprise carriage ride booked for our anniversary!

We really don't mind the self parking not being so close either. This will be our first time driving since 1999. I have to agree, the bus service to DTD from any resort is very slow so we will most likely drive as well.

Oh the carriage ride sounds wonderful and happy anniversary.

NOW my DH just said what about the deluxe room at the CR instead of the tower room. He said that if we book the deluxe we can stay an extra night instead of booking the tower room. More time at Disney, ah yeah.

ASMU/POR Dec 16-22, 2012 & CR Sept 8-15, 2013
We always book BLV and my CR requests are:
~Away from Chef Mickeys (which would be closer to BLT)
~High floor (if we're not staying CL)
~Odd room (beds face away from BLT and toward GW/WL/Epcot) or sometimes "no connecting door." I limit myself to no more than 3 requests.

All BLVs are unobstructed and all have a balcony so you're right that there really isn't that much difference one room to the next.

You've been added.

All of the WDW Resort daybed mattresses are the size of a twin bed, I believe. Only the fabric covering was changed during the spring rehab.

Like babyberger, we've never seen it crowded at breakfast. We have always had an ADR, but when we've been there, it was usually only about half full at most around mid-morning. You shouldn't have any problem without an ADR unless there's a large convention group in there.

What a wonderful surprise for your son! I would definitely make it an extra special memory by adding CL instead of taking the cruise.

The self-parking lot is not under the #9, but just to the left of it. The #9 is the bus stop area and below it is the valet parking area. The self-parking lot is right in front of BLT (beneath #14 and "RED") and to the left of the #9:



It's very close to both BLT and CR. In fact, whenever we take the walkway to the MK, we usually walk right past our car which is usually near/under the monorail track overhead. From the lobby of CR, it's no more than a 5 minute walk. I have a link to a video walking in real time from the CR lobby to the MK on the first page.

Add me to the roll call. We will be in the garden wing, Aug.7-12.

I wish I would have booked tower, but I was looking at the "whole" budget. We are combining business with pleasure, POP for the first 4 nights, DD7's b-day at the Contemporary for the last 5 nights.

It will be great to get back to the Contemporary. I love this resort!
