Have a magical trip. I finally made a decision in our resort for December. I booked the Garden at CR...this will be my son and my first stay and my husband 3rd stay (he stayed at the Tower with his family). Thanks for all your help with the questions I have asked. I was all over the place to which resort...first it was Swan (great rate) then WL when they came up with free dinning and then the cheaper price to stay at CR garden with deluxe dinning.

I can't wait to read your review when you get back.

Thank you to all those who responded and I will look into those things you asked and in some cases like the status of the playground, I had already planned on asking about that. Also I can access Disboards on my BlackBerry, however because I am in the United States my unlimited internet plan is not good, so I would be charged a lot for using it.

Ok all my little CR peeps....I need your help!!

I need to get my hands on a Green Monorail playset.
Can't find them on EBAy.
Can't specify color on Disneyshopping.com

Do you think I can call the shop at the CR and have them ship one home for me?

TIA for your help!!!

Just had a question come to mind because of a comment on another thread. How far is the walk from the front of the BLT to the bus stop at the Contemporary? Trying to remember if you just go through the parking lot then turn left. I am hoping that there is a little walkway. TIA

It's about a 1 minute walk and I believe you can walk along the side walk when going there, so it's very easy.

I found the green monorail in stock for $72.95:

Or you could try calling WDW merchandising: (407) 363-6200.

Thanks for your help WDWKOOK!

I called merchandising, but they only have the current color available...orange.

Also, Disneystore.com can't guarantee what color will ship.

I ended up getting one on Amazon for $99.00!

Oh well, lesson learned...get it while vacationing!!

We just wanted a standard tower MK view, but all that showed online when we could book on 8/3 was club level with MK view, so I went ahead and did it! Way more than I wanted to spend, but I wanted to be sure DH got the MK view he wants. This is probably our once in a lifetime trip to WDW, so we're "going all out" for it. I'm a planner and getting the package booked is the first thing marked off my list of things to do. On to March for ADRs!! I know that when I would play with the WDW online system last year it was the same situation. Only club level showed up, but later in the year, all types of rooms were available. I'm just not patient enough to wait!

Glad you found it. Someday you can sell it on eBay for twice as much!

Refridgerator Size

Will a gallon of milk and a gallon of water fit in the fridges in the Contemporary rooms?

Congratulations on booking the Atrium Club. It's so exciting to get that res. confirmation and let the planning begin. When/if a non-club level room opens up and/or any 2010 codes are released, you can always change your reservation up to 45 days prior without penalty.

Here is a link to room photos showing the interior of the fridge:

www.contemporaryresort.net

Click-on "CR Main Gallery" - "Room Photos" - Standard Room."

You'd have to remove the shelving to fit the gallon size.

I don't think so. You could probably do 2 half-gallons, though.
