I don't remember either being down at YC or WL, but just read on another site they were down filled at CR.

They feel like down at the CR, but I thought WDW Resorts used only synthetic down due to allergy concerns. Hopefully someone else will know for sure.

If we looked straight out our living room we could see the lake and to our left we had a great view of some of the MK attractions.
Sounds like you had a great view and room. We stayed in a BLT one bedroom in August and loved it, too. We also got our request which I was very happy about. Did you book a BB?

I really miss it to. I loved watching Lambert the Sheepish Lion at the end of the day. How much could it possibly have cost Disney cost to run that channel? I wonder why it was removed. Did that Duffy read-along channel replace it? You'd think they could have both though seeing how many channels are "reserved for future use."

Oh good, you are still talking me to I wasn't sure after my family's lack of love for WL this past weekend, LOL!!!!!

But yes that is exactly what I am concerned about. I am allergic to down and just like to let hotels/resorts know ahead of time if I know they have down. It would make sense that the resorts use something hypoallergenic. Hopefully someone will know for sure!

Have a great day KOOK!!!!

Wow. That really is disappointing. My kids are older now but still looked forward to watching them. We can watch everything else at home. That was a magical treat when staying in the Disney resorts.

I know it's not the same, but if you search YouTube for "Clasic Disney" or "Silly Simphonies" or even "Lambert the Sheepish Lion" you can find many of them there.

Hi everyone,
Newbie here. We are booked at CSR for a spring trip but hoping to switch to CR soon. We would like to request a garden wing room as I am not too fond of heights. Anyone ever been offered a free upgrade at check-in?

Also, do the garden wing rooms facing the lake/beach cost more?

A Garden Wing room is not a request, but a bookable category. There are two bookable view categories within the Garden Wing booking:

Standard View: These rooms face the parking lot with the monorail above.

Garden View: These rooms face either the pool/grass, the canal that connects Bay Lake to Seven Seas Lagoon or they can directly face Bay Lake. These three views within the bookable Garden View are by request only and they aren't guaranteed. If you don't like heights, you can request a ground floor room in the Garden Wing, if you end-up changing to CR

Thanks, I would be fine with any room in the garden wing. It's the open floors of the Tower building that I don't like. Are all those floors open to the main atrium? Is it just the 14th floor that is a closed floor? That's club level though right?

That's correct, only the Tower Club Level (14th floor) is enclosed and doesn't open to the Concourse below.

Hi everyone! Just slightly more than 45 days to my stay at CR Tower Bay Lake View. So excited! I have a question about Garden Grocer deliveries. I've read conflicting reports that the resort charges a fee for collecting deliveries. Is that right? Alternatively, could I get things like cereal, milk, water, snacks etc at the resort shop? Will they cost substantially more? I'm not on the dining plan so planning to eat breakfast in room except for the days i have breakfast ADRs....

thanks!

I read it had something to do with the new televisions, but I don't know if it's true and I really don't see why that would make a difference. We should all write Disney and let them know we want the cartoon channel back.

Yes, you can purchase all of those items at Fantasia. They also sell cereal, milk and water (all single-sized servings) at Contempo Cafe.These Fantasia photos are from August:

I had an order from Garden Grocer delivered at the end of September and the hotel did not collect any type of fee. I tipped the bell services gentleman when he brought them up for me but that was it.
