Incase you didn't see it on the 1st page is a picture of how the walkway route will look, so here it once again for you to see it.



As for your 65 days I am sure the time will go by fast and at least it's fun to plan what you want to do when your down there.

Can someone answer this for me?

We are heavily considering renting points at BLT. 8 nights in a standard studio would come out to about $1500, a huge savings over rack!


But I do have apprehension about renting points, even if I do it through David's. Mostly about paying it all up front 11 months out. I will do it if I can't find a better option, though.

So I was looking at the price of a garden wing standard view at CR from the price list on the CR page on Disney's site. I calculated it out and if I got 8 nights at the price listed during our dates AND I scored a 40% off discount, I would still come within the price I am willing to pay.

But when I go through the reservation system at CR to check the total price, it tells me there are only garden view rooms, no standard available. Yet when I look up the official price list, there are standard views. What gives? Are ALL the CR standard view rooms in the wing already sold out for September 2012???? Is that even possible? Are there only a few standard view rooms?

Thank you I did see that but it just looks so much farther than it really is I guess. I would have guessed it was more than a 10 minute walk so that's good news lol

Their Garden Wing room categories are Standard View which will be a view of the parking lot or convention center and Garden View which will be a view of their pool or Bay Lake.

Love looking at the pictures and making lots of notes on the tips. I've been going through all the older CR threads...my DH thinks I've lost a bit of my mind the amount of time I spend on these boards.

CONTEMPORARY - Here we come!!!
What a coincidence! My Future Wife and I will be there in 54 Days today celebrating our Honeymoon!

Grand Canyon Concourse

Which room categories exit to look over the grand canyon concourse? We would like views of the monorails coming in and out.

You can also reserve their Tower - Theme Park View and see both sets of Monorail's on the tracks going to and from the Magic Kingdom. I can't say how many times I would be sitting on the balcony and seeing that happen.

Ordering at Contempo Cafe with Special Diet

Hello,

I posted this question on the restaurant board, but then thought that the Contemporary experts here would be more likely to know the answer.

Would any of you happen to know the correct process to place an order at Contempo Cafe with a special diet? For instance, if I would like to order a breakfast burrito or something from the menu, but leave the meat off?

Do I place the order at the Kiosk, then stop at the pickup area to inform them? Do I place the order, then inform the cashier? I find this very confusing at Contempo.

Thank you.
Kelly

I can't believe I just did this but I just changed our reservation from BC-CL to Magic Kingdom View-Atrium Club! The room became available and I found some discount (August-September) which made this cheaper than what we had booked already. I am so excited for the view and how close we will be to the MK but I have to admit I am SO nervous. I have spent 5 months researching BC and I made this switch and don't know a whole lot about the CR. Tell me I made the right choice (please).

Thanks CR Resort Fan 4 Life!
Late reply on my part (try to get some work done - and disboards can eat tons of time!) ...but I appreciate the "where to get my morning coffee" update.

Can't wait... only 3 weeks left!

You will first place your order at the kiosk and if you have any changes tell the cashier. Even though you will have placed your order it's not started to be made until you pay because the cashier needs to give you a pager with a number on it. Well the Cast Members who make the food then put in the number on your pager when it's ready.
