Heading back to CR in July. Can't wait. When we were at WDW last November, there was what looked like a refurb of the slide/pool going on. Does anyone know anything about this, and are there any pictures of what it looks like now? Thanks!

Bopth pools are in full use, but as of my last day thee, 3/25/12, the pool slide looked like a ruin from an ancient civilization ... it looked like it hadn't been in use for a while and that it wasn't going to be in use any time soon.

So the slide can't be used? Yikes! That's not good! That's one of the things our older DS is most excited about!

I looked at the CR pool today and the slide is still closed due to construction, but the splash area re-opened.

Yep, I stayed there 2 weeks ago with a Bay Lake view and could see the pool quite well from my room.

The slide is actually missing a piece out of it at the top. However, I never saw anyone working on it, so not sure what the deal is there.

The splash area looked like it was being used and enjoyed very well!

Pal Mickey

Can anyone tell me what happened to "Pal Mickey". I just read about it and it sounds like it was neat and a good idea but they say it is no lomger available. Any one know why?:confused.

While I will continue to think that the Contemporary is an excellent resort, my new found love for the Boardwalk Inn has finally forced me to give up my CR Resort Fan 4 Life user name, and now go with something that is more appropriate - BWI FAN 4 EVER.

Anyway when the time comes to create a new Contemporary & Bay Lake Tower FAQ thread I won't be doing it and if someone is up to the challenge of doing the next one please let me know.

We thank you for all of the wonderful information that you have given to all of us. We will miss you.

Looking forward to maybe a BWI thread by you.

Thank you so much for all you have done!! Even though BWI is now your resort of choice, I know you will still be around the Disboards to share the knowledge you glean from your many trips. I look to you as one of the "experts" here and greatly appreciate all of your help.

Are you and your family headed back in August? And, I didn't happen to catch it, but did you ever get to try those Fish and Chips???

Thanks so much again!!

We were there the 29th to the 5th. A lifeguard at the CR pool told us that the slide would be down until the end of April. We were disappointed but the resort is very nice and has many other things to offer. We went to Blizzard Beach one day so my kiddos got their share of pool slides! It was our very first stay at CR- we loved it. We had a Tower Bay Lake view. Monorails were running most of the time, there were a few times it was down for an hour or two. Walk to Magic Kingdom was convenient but not as relaxing as the walk from BC/YC to Epcot. We liked that the QS food option was right there, our kids liked the fire pit/marshmallow roast, the fireworks and Electric Water Parade. But mostly they LOVED that the monorails run right through the resort. It made it different from any other Disney resort we've stayed in.

May I ask where did u do the marshmallow roast? Our kids will definitely like to do that when we are there. Do they have it all the time? Do we need to pre register for it? Any info you can provide will be much appreciated.
