Not meaning to start a debate but I find the conditioner doesn't work well in my hair so I usually bring my own.
The last time we paid cash for DVC, we also got refills on laundry detergent.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll only be there two nights (just a quick solo getaway.) So I'm sure it'll be fine for that short of a trip. I just am trying to figure out how to get sunscreen down without spending an arm an and a leg if I don't check a bag, but if I can bring two 3 oz sun screens instead of shampoo/conditioner, I think that'll work. If I was going for longer and checking a bag, I'd definitely bring my own! Or if it was the combo I'd need to bring my own because it just makes my hair unmanageable!

Contempo Cafe

Hi everyone. I'm KK from the UK. We're planning a two week visit August 2012, and have loads of questions if you guys don't mind a Englsh guy butting into the thread from time to time....

First of all, the Cafe thing scares me: the automated kiosks and I will not get on; I can hardly use an ATM without doing something wrong!!!! Can you tell me anymore about it?

Also, we've stayed at the GF before and we're used to 24hr snack bar: we used to get back late from park and DW or myself would normally go and get drinks (Disney coffee is far nicer than the rubbish we get in the UK), and pick up danish for Breakfast the next morning. What's the alternative at the CR as I believe the Cafe is not 24 hour?

Thanks guys! Looking forward to getting to know you over the next year.

Their touch screen ordering kiosks are very easy to use and if you have any problems one of their Cast Members will be able to help you with them.

Now the hours from the Contempo Cafe is from 6:00 AM - 12:00 AM and there is nothing else over there that is open 24 hours a day. My advice is purchasing some items in advance to keep in your room when your hungry for the times past 12:00 AM.

Can anyone tell me if 1: EACH bathroom has supplies in a 2 bedroom/3 bathroom and 2: How much $ is it to ask for more?

Trying to decide if I should stop at Publix and get full size bottles for my family of 6.

Thanks

Great pic hstrickland

I know this is a CR thread but I am so excited to be going back to CR/BLT. Ok *deep breath* today BLT finally became available on the web site so we are booked for June 2012 1 bdrm villa TPV for the second half of our trip. I am so excited and can't wait to tell our DS15 when he gets home.

Thanks CRRF4L. I know we will. Can't wait to go back as we just love the whole CR/BLT area. Our DS was super stoked when we told him. Now I only have to wait until I can make our ADR's. Hope you and your family have a great time at the BWI.

Thanks and looking my BWI ticker our trip is coming up very soon. In fact we are leaving on the 14th since we happen to be driving down, so sometime next week it will be time to start packing.

We've booked a stay at the CR for October 2012 but are hoping to get a 2BR at BLT so we can all be together. Website still says it's not available.....any idea when it might come open?

Also, we're hoping to get a pin for 40% off. If I book BLT in a package, can it be applied? Or should I just book the room and add tickets and dining after (if I can even do that)? Thoughts? This is our first WDW vacation!

I would be jumping out of my skin to be packed already. You guys must be so excited.

I just booked our June 28, 2012 trip to BLT 1 Bdrm Villa TPV today. It was not available on line yesterday but when I went on today it was there. I figured it would be about 10 months before we could book and I was pretty much spot on.

Last year we were booked in a 1 bdrm villa TPV but then my DH received a 40% off code. So I called to see if they could apply it to our TPV and they only had LV available so we took it. Couldn't pass up that savings. Just as long as they still have inventory available under the code, you should be good. They only allot a certain amount of rooms per code.

smooreo,

Just spoke to a CM about BLT and was told that cash reservation at BLT can be made 8 months in advance. I believe it is 11 months for DVC members. We're teying for June 2012 so I have a couole of months to wait.
