UPDATE: We are now in the room. Eveything is clean and pretty. No fridge. Magicbands worked on the doors. Super cool. Everyone is sleeping off the jet lag since we all woke up at 2 AM

Do you have a Magic Kingdom view? Just wondering if there is a noise issue with the construction of the new MK bus depot accross the street.

Thanks!

We do not have an TPV. But you cannot hear the noise outside the club level while you are next to the window. You can hear it on the balcony.

EDIT: If you want your MagicBands to work you need to hold them against the thingy for a long time until you see the green light. You can't just flash it once quickly and go "Well, MagicBands are a bust." .

We leave for CR in 7 days and I JUST discovered the Contempo Cafe. We normally like the moderate resorts for their food courts (I know, we're crazy).

Anyway, I'm wondering how big it is and how crowded it gets, especially for lunch and early dinners. I see the pictures from the beginning of the thread, but I can't figure out how big it is.

It's not a food court. It gets crazy crowded and empties all in about 3 minutes. You order your food, they hand you a piece of paper with your order, you go pay for it then they hand you a pager and suggest you go find a table if you are eating in. When your pager explodes, you go get your stuff. It's the cheapest and quickest way to get Mickey waffles (use the vegetarian option and you are not stuck paying for the extra meat products.)

CA Grill has been lit up at night. From afar, they appear to have added much more lighting, perhaps pendant lights? Hard to tell from afar, but it is very bright. I spoke to a manager who said the latest re-opening estimate is still around the first week of September.

Beautiful pic....thanks for posting . Also thanks for the update on CA Grill. We've never eaten there, but we are considering it for one of our nights when we are at the CR in December.

You're welcome! It's always a must-do for us. I'm not sure how we'll like the "newly imagined" CA Grill, but I would still recommend to anyone that they try it at least once. At least the view will be unchanged

Have you booked your split stay yet?

This is going to sound silly but it looks like they are Christmas lights from up close!

I already have our ADRs booked, but may change one of them to CA Grill .

Yes, I finally booked . By the time I decided what to go with, the new RO promo was going to be coming out, so I held off until 8/1 when the discounts were released. I had my choice of every room type from GW through MKV CL. I decided to go all out and went with MKV CL 12/17-12/19 and got a 20% discount. I called with BLV CL in mind, but MKV CL wasn't that much more for the 2 nights, so by the time I knew it, I was telling her to book that . I'm happy with my CR choice and I was able to get Poly CL for 12/22-12/24 with 30%, so that really made my day because I wasn't expecting any discounts for those 2 nights since it's the beginning of Christmas week .
