How is the buses lately? What order of hotel is Contemporary? Is it the first and then 2 more resorts? I know when we were staying at GF and we went to DTD, it was contemporary, WL and GF. I was hoping its the first resort...I know this is silly but my husband did not like the bus system at GF (we always stood going to HS and AK so we started taking taxi). With free dinning, I'm starting all over with our December resort...I was planning Swan but free dinning is to hard to not try. My son and I never stayed at Contemporary but my husband has before with his family. My other choice is BC.
Another question, is the elevator usually crowded to go to your rooms?

We used busses for DTD, WPs, AK and HS. The buses were great! We shared with Poly and WL & GF shared. I think we did share with GF, too at HS. THe only thing was that it took forever to get to DTD and then on to Typhoon Lagoon (about 45 min) but we never waited long for buses at all. And there's a CM at the busstop in the morning asking where you're going. Idk for sure, but I think she caled a HS bus because we had just missed one. We waited all of 5 more min. and the next one was there!
The buses were never so crowded that anyone stood, either.

Their hours are from 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM and yes Hot Chocolate is available up there.

Mickey's Pin Trading Afternoon (formerly Mickey's Pin Trading Night) will be held Saturday, August 15, 2009, from 2 to 5 p.m. This free activity is open to all ages and will be held at Disney's Contemporary Resort - Convention Center, Fantasia G Ballroom. There will not be a pin trading activity in September, but the monthly event will resume in October.
This is from Allears.

After seeing the pics from the breakfast food in the lounge I want one of those pasteries NOW!!
Well, only 17 days (really 18) until I can get one.
Thanks you for all the great info and pictures everyone!!!!

We will be decorating our door with Mickeys (12th floor) so you will know where "your DIS people" are; come say HI!
Hope to see some DIS fans!
I am actually a very serious WDW pin collector/trader and I will be going to the afternoon pin trading and maybe I will see you around there or in the lounge.

Based on my experiences with them in the mornings they share with either the Polynesian or Wilderness Lodge. Then in the afternoon they share with both the Polynesian and Grand Floridian. However no matter what the locations they share with the Contemporay guests will always be picked up frist and dropped off first.

As for the elevators they have never been that crowded and on each floor of the Tower there is 4 or 5 elevators, so incase they are crowded it shouldn't be long for another one to arrive.

Thank you for answering all my questions, so after 10:00 you can't get any drinks from the lounge? What about on the 4th floor if you have a refillable mug, how late can you get drinks there?

After 10:00 PM the Cast Members working on the Atrium Club floor go home for the evening, so that means they take all the drinks and etc which go in the storage room. However you purchased a mug you can drink anytime you want at the Contempo Cafe.

Thank you CR Resort Fan 4 Life, that's the answer I'm looking for...I don't mind if we have to share buses at other resort but I want to be able to get a sit with my four year...it was hard for him at the bus when we had to stand when we were at GF. I like the idea of being first drop off after a long day in the parks too. I think my husband will be more open to staying at CR, when I asked him WL...his response is lets stay home and go to Disney next year.
Thank you...if we book CR I'm sure I'll have more questions

Hope to see you there! It sounds like fun! We have lots of pins but I'm sure they aren't anything special; I hope someone will want to trade!

You're welcome and at least in the mornings you should have the best chance of getting seats on the bus, when getting on at the Contemporary because it should be empty and because you would be picked up 1st. However when getting on the buses from the parks in the afternoon that's a different story, since there will also be guests lined up for the Polynesian and Grand Floridian.

Well if we run into each other I will trade with you if we are able to work something out, because it depends on the types of pins we have and what were both looking for.

CR Resort Fan, I look forward to you CR report! I am hoping you can tell us what it's like as I think you will be there after BLT is open. I am wondering how this will impact monorail service and the 4th FL concourse area.

I wish we were going with you! I know, I have another trip in a few months, but I'm impatient, lol.

Mary

So glad to have found this thread! Just booked BLT 2BR Villa for November - for 5 adults -girls only trip! I've never stayed at CR before so this is a real treat for us. I'm going to go read this entire thread now....and hopefully when BLT is officially open (isn't it next week?) there will be some great reviews & pics on here as well!
