Another bothersome question..

Since we are staying at BLT but paying cash.. Is the Internet free. I know it is free for DVC members.

It's free wifi for everyone staying at any Walt Disney World Resort.

Did that change? I know the poly charged last year. I ran a live stream and it was expensive!

oh thank you! coffee should not be this important, but sadly, in my life now, it is!

any thoughts from anyone on the contempo cafe in general? (not just coffee )

We both loved Contempo Cafe and walking to MK each evening
Have you stayed at the poly before?

I booked the bay view as well. We have watched the fireworks at California grill and from my balcony at the Poly. I prefer the Poly. I think CR is too close to take it all in! So I dont really care for a TPV.

The news of all the WDW Resort guests getting free wifi was announced a couple of months ago.

Okay, I have a couple of stupid questions about the Wifi:

1. Are they just testing this out or is it here to stay?

2. Is the free Wifi just accessible in common areas of the resorts or also in your room?

Thank you sir! That is great. Maybe I will host a live feed from BLT!

The coffee bar (I forget the exact name) is different from the Contempo Cafe. The coffee bar is on the first floor in the front right, before you hit the lobby and check in/out lines on your left. It's styled like a starbucks-type counter, order at the register, pick up at the end of the counter, add your own sugar and milk, etc.

The contempo cafe is the counter service restaurant on the fourth floor, where you order from the computer screens, pay (which actually activates the order) and they'll give you a beeper to come back to pick up your items. We ate breakfast one day (egg sandwiches), and lunch another (burgers), and both meals were very good for a counter service. We thought much better than Gasparilla Grill (GF) in 2009, though GG has had a complete menu change since then. The lunch salads looked very good, I definitely plan to try one in April.

Good news! I've been away from the boards for a while. I won't tell DH about the free wifi or he'll stay up all night online on our next trip!

Just back from CR Sunday (sigh). We had a great stay.

I was thrilled to have free WIFI! It is available in the room. It's pretty fast but randomly knocked me off line a few times.

Hopefully it's a permanent upgrade to the resorts.

I believe it's here to stay maybe CR Fan 4 Life can confirm

Yes both in the rooms and common areas.
DD was able to access it on her IPOD in our room

Thank y'all so much! I hope they keep it around so that I can have internet (without paying for it) during our December trip.
