I hope she has a great vacation!
I agree, the view of Bay Lake is simply breathtaking in the morning!!!
We wouldn't trade that for a MK view if we went back.

That is great to hear. I have read all the reviews and am hoping we get an awesome view. I don't think there can be a bad view as long as I'm at Disney.

The North Wing is long gone, but the South Wing remains. There are two bookable view categories: Standard and Garden. Standard is closest to the monorail and parking lot. Garden can be facing the pool, Bay Lake or the canal.

We were going to do BL view last fall, but they were sold out of rooms at our discount code, so we ended up with MK view. This time, I stayed up to watch the fireworks!

I think a BL view would be beautiful. Does anybody have BL photos to post?

Looking right, you can see Wilderness Lodge, then further back you can see Spaceship Earth:

Glad to help! I love CR. So much so that I'm in the process of closing on a DVC contract at Bay Lake Tower!

We were actually booked to stay for 11 nights at a tower theme park view room at the Contemporaray from 27 Nov to 8 Dec. Since they are offering free dining for the period that we'll be there I called yesterday to request to convert to free dining. Unfortunately, the theme park view room is not included in the promo. We either have to change to a one bedroom suite, or garden wing or std club level. In the end we decided to change to the TP view at the Poly instead. Save us $1400. While I will definitely miss the convenience of Contemporary, especially the inconvenience of using our resort mug at the Poly, it's nice to try a diff resort. For $1400, it's worth the change.

That stinks for you. I got TPV with the FD PIN. We can only stay three nights due to high schoolers, but I figure any discount works!

That's a 2nd THANK YOU to Missyrose for posting the pictures. I don't know if I can wait 10 months. I'm excited to have a cruise coming up, but man I realize how much I miss the parks.

You're welcome!

thanks- I think we have a standard room. (i am hoping to be near the laundry room- unless they upgrade me to a full castle view--lol)

would you know what I should request when checking in.

being by the pool is not important- we are arriving late (6pm) eating dinner, washing clothes and taking a spin on the monorail and getting to bed early.

we will not be using the pool as we are only coming for a weekend--one day at magic kingdom then leaving the next day
