You should be greeted by a CM who will escort you to the 12th floor. If you aren't, just ask for a Club Level Runner or CM who can escort you to the 12th floor where you will check-in. We always drive so the gate guard announces our arrival which alerts the staff. A CM should be waiting to greet guests outside as soon as they arrive, but that doesn't always happen.

We have a tower room with a MK view booked for one night! We then transfer over to AKV-Kidani 2 bedroom suite with a savanna view.

Our flight arrives at MCO at 9:15am. We are getting a rental car and figure our arrival time at hotel will be around 11am. (We have a 4 year old and 2 year old)

My plan is to check in, hope our room is ready but if not...eat lunch and head for the pool. Are there 2 pools? Which pool is best for a 4 & 2 year old? I saw they have cabanas by one pool. I'm debating getting a cabana if our room isn't ready so we have a place to relax. Hoping we can do that day of?!

Thanks in advance for the help!!

This is weird to me because there is a price difference when booking. If I'm paying extra for a MK view, I expect to get a MK view.

Can anyone clarify?

So would this allow them to park for free at the parks as well?
Just thought about that.

Also, how are the buses to AK and HS? Dedicated bus for CR or does it stop at other resorts as well?

Hi,
In 2012, it worked that the CR busses went to the Poly then to the AK/HS. On the way back, the AK bus stopped first at Blizzard Beach, then returned to the CR-Poly.

And, for the logorail! We'll be there 5/10-17, CR Garden Wing. First time back to the CR since we were young...

This only applies to the Queen bedded rooms on the 14th floor (Tower Club) there is no price difference in these rooms.

Regular tower rooms and 12th floor Atrium Club rooms have different prices for Bay Lake View and MK view.

Once upon a time all rooms in the 1-12th floor of the tower were the same price. 14th floor has always been more expensive.

Yes you have the ability to park at the parks for free with the parking pass at the resorts.

Depending on how full the bus is, it may stop off at the poly. When I was on the bus last month, it picked up at the Contemporary and immediately went to the poly before going anywhere else. I was surprised that it didn't go to the GF but it didn't.

. I love CR because of the walk to MK, it's really close. I'm a bigger guy and didn't like idea of extra walking during my first stay at CR, but once I tried it we almost never take the monorail now. We always stay at BLT which is a bit closer than the garden wing, but it's still a 5 to 10 min walk depending on your speed.

Welcome. You might get to CR prior to 11 and your room might be ready. It depends on whether they've assigned you to a room that was occupied the previous night.

There are two pools at CR: The feature/Mickey ear-shaped pool and the Bullseye or Bay Lake pool, which is considered the quiet pool. Your kids will use the feature pool which has the slide and some fountains and is next to the children's water feature area.

The cabanas should be reserved in advance and can be rented for full and half days. There is more pool and cabana information and photos HERE in the thread. Let us know if you have any other questions.

If you booked a MKV, you will get a MKV. As NJRRK posted, only Tower Club Level/14th floor room views are not bookable. The booking for them is a little confusing, but they read "Standard Club Level Room," and Tower Club and 14th floor aren't noted in the booking. Atrium Club bookings will read "Atrium Club" and the views are now bookable.

My magical erasing RC quill will erase you from the Lodgers' Log and your CR dates will magically appear in the Log-orail

No need to worry, just like Spork24 posted, the walk is about 10-15 minutes from the furthest GW room and it's magical to walk toward the MK and see SM and the Castle and hear the train. It's actually shorter than waiting and riding the monorail.

For a GV/GW room, the rooms that front Bay Lake are amazing. You can walk right out to the beach and pool from a ground floor room. The rooms that face the canal are also very quiet and nice, but some have obstructed views from trees. The ground floor rooms have patios, but there are no balconies in the GW.
