Thank you!!
WDWKOOK posted the hours, but just vouching for the quality of the coffee, when we went in July, we bough coffee/iced coffee/lattes/iced lattes/iced mochas, and all were good! Not quite Starbucks (I'm a SB junkie), but it fulfilled the joneses very well.

They don't sell the refillable mugs there and that means you can't any refills there since you purchased them at the Contempo Cafe.

One week!!!

We'll be checking in at the Contemporary next Tuesday It has been my *dream* since I was 13 to stay at this resort...I can't wait!

and now for a question...

We have an ADR at WCC one night at 7:45 p.m. Would we have better luck walking to MK and hopping on a boat to take to WL, or do the boats that run from the CR to WL reliable? Should we plan to be at a boat dock at 7:00...does that give us enough time? Thanks!

We took the CR/WL boat in May and waited no longer than 15 minutes! It was so easy!! I didn't even know it was there. We were there exploring the resort, saw the boat dock and decided to go explore WL and eat at WCC for lunch!

They haven't always been reliable for us. In July, we walked from the MK to the CR and tried to take the Blue Flag back to the WL where we were staying. We waited almost 30 mins. and decided to walk back to the MK and take the WL bus back. When we got up to the CL lounge, I looked down and saw a man who had been waiting at the CR dock with us just then walking from the boat dock. The bus from the MK was actually faster than the boat from the CR that day.

Cabana's at CR

Hi Everyone, Question, has anyone ever rented a cabana at CR and if so which one would you recommend? I imagine that they are all good but what's your preference. The one's by the entrance or the one's furthest from the entrance? TIA

Haven't rented one there, but there are four of them and they encircle the Quiet (Bay) Pool.

Here are some links to info. and photos, in case you haven't already seen them:

Thanks WDWKOOK. I have seen the pictures and I like how they are kind of secluded. After renting the cabana's from our previous stays at the GF it definitely spoils you. We have a split stay next year, first half is the at Poly (renting a cabana) and second half at BLT. Thinking of renting a cabana at CR as well but not definite on that one yet.

When we were there this summer, I know there were two more cabanas, one on each side of the regular pool, in addition to the four in the quiet pool area.
