Thank you!
I would try doing a Google search because I think that's the best way to find out that information.

Now if there is a convention taking place and are worried about those guests I wouldn't. Whenever I have stayed at the Contemporary and a convention was going on I didn't see those guests, unless I was walking along the 2nd floor of the Tower or inside the convention center. The only time when I remember it being crazy was in 2001 when Raymond James had a convention and when those guests were checking-in the line up in the lobby was almost out the door.

I can't help with the convention schedule, but I wanted to say how exciting for you that your trip is so close .

This is what I found by doing a Google search. I've never seen a convention schedule, per se, for the CR, like I've seen for CSR.


Thursday, June 21-23, 2012
NALEO


June 11 - 15, 2012
Western CPE


June 6-10, 2012
2012 Florida Liability Claims Conference
Disney's Contemporary Resort


I'm sure there are many others, but that's about all I could easily find for June. There were also a couple of Disney Institute programs at the CR during June.

[QUOTE=WDWKOOK;44154632]I would plan on one hour, so I would take the 0700 bus. I don't think the monorail will be running. I saw this post here that might be helpful:

We had an early ADR at Akershus the past 2 trips. This last trip we stayed at the Poly and walked to the TTC from there around 7:30/7:40. They had a CM standing at the entrance to the Epcot monorail telling us to head to the bus stop--the monorail wasn't running yet but the bus took us directly there with no stops. We got there in plenty of time!! The trip before they didn't have a CM there and we waited until 8 am for a monorail to arrive. Needless to say we were late to Akershus but it wasn't a problem. They realize there can sometimes be transportation issues!!

So that I got it right for you, I went to AllEars:

Buses for Epcot (Princess Breakfast at Norway) will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

This information is valid EVERY DAY, and for ALL DISNEY RESORTS serviced by Bus transportation.

These buses are for Breakfasts only, and should not be used for general park access. Always let the driver know where you are going upon boarding the bus. Most times, the driver will be able to take you directly (ie: Contemporary, for Chef Mickey's) but sometimes this is not possible. As such, you should always allow time for a connection when going Resort to Resort. Actual arrival times will vary by location.





TQUOTE]

Thank you. To clarify, is this a bus running from TTC or from CR? Are there buses from CR or am I going to have to take the resort monorail to TTC then get on a bus there? Where will I go to get the bus? Will it be obvious when I arrive at the TTC? Thanks!

If we decided to just take a cab to not mess with the hassle, how long should we allow for the cab ride? What time would we want to leave CR in the cab? Thanks!

According to AllEars, the schedule is for all Disney resorts serviced by bus transportation. So you would catch the Epcot bus at the CR between 0700-0715. Hopefully, someone who has actually used the first CR Epcot bus of the day can tell you more about their experience since I haven't used it that early.

I've never taken a cab, but they are always easy to get and the drive would only be about 10 minutes. So assuming there is a cab out front and a 10 minute drive and another 15 minutes to walk to Norway and getting there 15 minutes prior to your 0800 ADR, I would leave the CR no later than 0715. But since I've never done this, your mileage may vary

We checked into the CR today while their system was down. So no room requests could be found. My Mom was the one here first and said the staff were wonderful drifting everything down by hand and manually processing credit cards. When she got her text with our room # we got 10th fl odd # room.
I am now laying in bed watching the castle change colors! Wow! Just wow!

So glad that the check-in mess actually ended-up just fine in the end. Was it the entire resort reservation system that was down? Do you know for how long?

You're up awfully late for someone who's going to be up for the next 24-hours. Will you let us know how long the wait time for BTR is at 0300 tomorrow?

Yes, I believe the entire system was down. I saw a note on the Disney TA site. Not sure how long it was down but we are very happy with our room. Except for the fog so I can't see the Castle!
