You might be able to see part of them, however it's hard to say because of the Contemporary Tower and Bay Lake Tower being in the way. The only thing I can say is you will be able to hear them when they are going off.

We were on the seventh floor right above CM, and it was LOUD. Not the normal eating noise, but the yelling and screaming for every kid's birthday was really bad. They encourage everyone to scream and wave their napkins. If you're waking up early for rope drop, though, not a problem!
I think when it comes to something like this it depends on what each persons opinion is and where their room is located. There have been a few times when staying on the 12th floor that I got a room over Chef Mickey's, however I didn't mind noise from there. The last time I stayed on the 12th floor was in August 2010 and was in room #4808 on the Bay Lake side. Well that specifc room was right over the Contempo Cafe, however it was almost right at the begining of where Chef Mickey's starts. Although I can say that I didn't hear any noise from there.

However I do agree if anyone thinks noise from there will be a problem the best thing is to request a room away from Chef Mickey's over the Fantasia store, having a higher floor would only be a bonus.

I like the new thread. Have a great trip. We're finally out of the 100 range and counting down to our first trip to BLT.

May I add a couple of questions?

With a little one, we are excited to be able to stay at CR and see fireworks from the room balcony a night or two during our stay. On other nights, how is the noise level of Wishes inside a MK view room with the balcony doors closed, something you could sleep through? Just in case he's very tired and turns in around 8 or so. I know Wishes will be late some nights when MNNSHP is going on from looking at park and event calendars.

Secondly, Chef Mickey's, the Concourse, etc., can you barely hear noise inside your room later at night, early in the a.m or REALLY hear it? Thanks for any responses

Well even with the balcony doors closed you can still hear the bang of the fireworks when they go off, however it's not as bad if you were standing outside or had the balcony door opened.

The noise level on the 4th floor depends on which floor your room will be located on. So if your room is over Chef Mickey's chances are you will hear it, although others claim it's not a problem and others don't like it. Basically that comes down to your personal opinion, although you can request a room away from there just incase. Now the lowest floor I ever had in the Tower was on the 6th floor which was right above the Monorail station. However I can honestly say we never heard any noise from it or people talking when they were in line.

Thank you CR Fan

I have a request noted for a high floor, I didn't think it would be bad, but travelling a lot for work i'm amazed at the things you hear through the walls and doors of hotel rooms. Some of which I wouldn't want to have to explain to a three year old! Hopefully he'll be able to sleep soundly after being so tired, if we can calm him down from being so excited to be at this favorite place! Having stayed in the Garden Wing and loved it, we hope we'll like this even more.

Hopping in to the new thread.

I've got two upcoming stays at the CR booked. 8/4-8/10, DS and I will be staying Tower-MK view to celebrate his 18th birthday. Then I've got a stay booked in November for an annual continuing ed conference that I go to every year and my husband will actually be going along with me (he loathes Disney....it's his one flaw).

These will be my third and fourth trips to the CR. I have to be honest, so far, it's my favorite resort on property, so I'm VERY excited to be staying there twice this year.

Thanks for the pics and CR info thread!

Oh no, I looked at your lovely pictures, Heather and my heart sank a little knowing we're not booked there. But, I have to keep telling myself that we're staying CL at the WL for the same price as a Tower/BLV non-CL room and we were just there in August and December

OK, I told myself all those things, but I'm still missing the CR.

Great pictures Heather and just like WDWKOOK it's weird knowing that next month will be our second straight trip not staying there, although like last time we will be planning to visit and it's better then nothing.
