Woo hoo!

So, after a ridiculous amount of Debate, we're settled on CR TPV for March. Can't wait! Now, tell me all kinds of things about CR to get me excited that only CR crazy fans would know Doesn't that sound fun?

Also, a few small questions:

-Does anyone have any idea of good spots w/in the standard room for a pack and play. How big is the bathroom? Big enough for the pack and play?
-Is there an ideal floor or group of room numbers to request for best castle/fireworks view? It is DDalmost2's bday celebration, and she's going to love watching the 8 p.m. Wishes from the room!!

Thanks!

Well I am sure you know that they are the only resort with a walkway that goes to and from the Magic Kingdom, so that's a major plus.

In my opinon the Contempo Cafe is one of the best Quick Service locations in all of WDW.

As for your questions I can tell you the highest non Club Level floor you can request is the 11th floor and if you request an odd number room then your beds will be facing the Magic Kingdom, so it can be the first thing you see when you wake up.

The bathrooms are the biggest I have seen among the Deluxe Resorts haivng previously stayed at the Polynesian, Boardwalk Inn and Beach Club. Plus the toilet is behind another door, so someone else could be in the shower at the same time.

Great to know about the odd # rooms. Anyone out there used a pack and play in the CR? How did it work for you? Best places to put it?

Thanks!

My one TPV suggestion would be "away from Chef Mickeys", unless you never plan to sleep late or nap in the early evening. Enjoy!

Quick question - is the studio at BLT any larger than the rooms at CR?

The CR (non-suite) rooms are larger than a BLT Studio by almost 100 SF. The Studio is about 330 SF and the CR rooms are about 425 SF.
