I would say you made a great choice and I am sure you will have a great time.

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!

Thank you!!

My question: South Wing rooms...Do they not all have balconies? I saw a few pictures that looked like there were sliding glass doors, but no actual balconies.

Also, do all the 1st floor rooms in the South Wing have patios?

Thanks!

The rooms on their 2nd and 3rd floors don't have any balconies, so if that's important for you then it's best you make a reservation for a room in the Tower since they all come with a balcony.

However the 1st floor rooms of the Garden Wing building do come with a patio and you can always request a room on that specifc floor.

Woo hoo!! The MK view is one of the main reasons we booked CR for next year. It is going to be awesome. You're going to love it!!

Posting from WL/CL

Before our arrival, I checked the booking site and noticed that the Atrium Club actually had rooms available during our stay. So after we ate at The Wave's breakfast buffet yesterday (fantastic buffet - I'll post photos of it soon), I asked a mgr. if DH could take a quick peek at the Atrium Club lounge since he's not stayed there. I asked the mgr. why there was availability again and he explained that the construction on the 14th floor has been temporarily halted so they re-opened the 12th floor. He confirmed that the 12th floor was closed due to the noise on the 14th. He also said that the construction would start back up "very soon."

Thanks so much for letting me know! I'm glad I asked the question! I had a feeling that's the way it is when I saw pictures.
We may be staying in January for Marathon Weekend, but will be with a group discount rate, so I don't think we really have a choice of upgrading to a tower room. Would love a balcony to hang out on, but not sure we would want the first floor. Not a deal breaker though!
I appreciate your help!

Well if you end up staying at the Contemporary I am sure you will have a great time, no matter if you are in the Tower or Garden Wing.

I agree! No doubt! My older two kids have been bugging us to stay at the Contemporary for a long time!

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!!!
My DH makes fun of me all the time for the hours of my life I will never get back reading forums We will be at the Comtemporary Dec12th -17th
for our very first Disney Vacation. I have a hard time finding CR info in many forums anyway I hope you have a great trip and give a review when you get back

Question for the CR experts - Does the view of the MK improve as your room moves north along the corridor away from Chef Mickey's? I want to have the best MK view possible and am wondering if I should request a room toward that end. We're on CL so floor is not an issue.
