I believe that check-in desk is for the lounge that carlnix30 was asking about. It's like Cali Grill, they make sure you're supposed to be able to go up before you can access the special elevator.

And don't forget your camera like I did one year! I had to get DH to run upstairs to grab our camera. Lesson learned.
Thanks for the responses. January 21st can't get here soon enough. I am giddy with excitement!

Staying at CR at the end of March into the busy first week of April. I will have many questions, but first- tell me about the coffee bar. Nescafe or the good stuff? Stayed at the poly two years ago and LOVED the coffee bar in the lobby there. I know they will not be serving Kona coffee but tell me what you know!

Will the pool area be busy? Do they have childrens activities?

Delivery fee?

I am thinking of order water to be delivered to our room (from Costco or Staples or somewhere similar)... since CR is a convention hotel, is there a surcharge for having items delivered to hotel guests? I've read that there is, but I've also seen posts that people have not been charged the surcharge. Any recent experience?

We arrive in 12 days and I cannot wait!!!

TIA!

It's not Kona, but better than the typical Disney World swill. It's sort of a Starbucks clone, with starbucks style drinks, and I would say it gets about 80-90% there in quality. We tried a bunch of different hot and iced drinks (coffees, mochas, lattes, etc.), and all were decent. We went every day if that means anything.

If the items are sent via Fed Ex or UPS then there will be a charge when picking them up at the Business Center.

However if they are sent via the United States Postal Service then they will be sent to the front desk of the Contemporary and a Cast Member will deliver them to your room, so you don't pay anything for that.

In August/September 2011 when I stayed at the Boardwalk Inn my Aunt had some items sent there which she bought online since it was less expensive. Well some items we needed to pick up and pay a little fee, where as others got sent right to our room when they were brought up by a Cast Member.

Now I am confused.. If we label it "front desk" will it still go to the business center?

Just had to share my excitement I just switched our June trip from the Poly to CR Bay Lake view

I had posted a mini trip report before that DD and I received had received an upgrade from GW GV to the Tower Bay Lake view back in November for our Thanksgiving trip. I just couldn't get that gorgeous view out of my head and those comfy beds

We both loved Contempo Cafe and walking to MK each evening

All you do is put the full addess for the Contemporary. However like I said before if the package is sent via Fed Ex or UPS then it will go to the Business Center and you need to pick up there and pay whatever the fee would be. If it's sent via the United States Postal Service it will go directly to the front desk and a Cast Member will bring it to your room without any extra costs.

That's exactly how it happened when I was getting some packages at the Boardwalk Inn, because they also have a Business Center and where I am basing this information from.
