The walk to and from the Garden Wing to the Tower takes about 5 minutes or less. As for the walk to the Magic Kingdom I say it's about 10 minutes or maybe less depending on how fast you walk.

Wow! So many pictures!

My family were thinking about staying at the Contemporary but opted Yacht Club instead (Oct/Nov time 2010) but next time we go (couple of years time) we will seriously consider Contemporary.

This is going to sound like a very odd question, but if you get a MK view on the higher levels what side of the room are the beds? (if you're looking into the room from the hallway door) my Mother is very weird with details like that. Hahaa!

I asked for an odd-numbered room so that the bed faced the castle. We were on the 12th floor. So the beds are on the left as you enter the room. I suppose that in the even-numbered rooms the beds would be on the right as you enter the room. I don't know about that.

Very well said. When this comes up, as it does alot. I always look at it as the old "two types of people, glass half full, or half empty". The only time i see the parking lot is when i deliberatly look down to see it. But with the MK right there, the GF, poly, monorails, ferries, the fact your in the heart of Disney, why would you ever focus on tha parking lot?

Glad my glass is always half full

Here are some pictures from our 8/7-8/14. We were quite surprised and excited to be chosen as Family of the day, so we were given the Hospitality Suite! This was on the first floor of the GW, and we had 4 sliding doors onto our patios.

THe suite was beautiful and very large.

no it was just a regular MK view room. We were on the 6th floor. The view was really nice. (sorry it took me so long to get back to this question. Ive been gone for awhile lol).
