Do you mean a cab back to your resort for ME or a cab to the airport? You could get ME to pick you up at the Contemporary instead and just take your carry on luggage with you. You can have them hold it for you at the front of the park and pick it up on your way out. (We did this on a resent trip when we bought the giant Stitch.)

This CAN NOT be done. The ME bus pick up is only at the resort you are staying at. You can not get it at the Contemporary or any resort other than your own.

If you want to get a cab at the MK, you have to take the Monorail or the Ferry to the TTC for the cab stand, so plan on that travel time. There are no cabs available right at the MK. A cab to the airport is pretty expensive - over $60 I believe.

If you are going straight to the airport from the park, you would have to be schlepping your carry ons to breakfast or putting them in lockers under the train station, if they will fit. I would definitelty try for fewer carry ons, two rather than six, as you asked earlier.

You can get a taxi from the Contemporary as well, just walk or catch the monorail.

I've never caught the ME, we hire a town car to pick us up at the airport and take us back and someone else suggested getting picked up from the Contemporary so sorry about that.

Well...hmmm...gosh darnit I don't want to give up this reservation! LOL* I don't want to call my TA either because it's just such a serious pain with this lady to change things. ARGH.

So if I took a cab from the MK travel center to CBR do you think that'd shave any time off? We could check out early and have all our carry-on's at the front entrance so all we have to do is grab them and get on the ME to the airport. Think that'd work??? Or worst case scenario we could to and leave a little early if it looks like we'll be cutting it close.

In the future I'll be booking my own trips. We booked this time with a TA who made all my reservations and to be honest, they kind of stink!!! Anyhow, we're already paid up and we have a ticket for that day so we might as well go for SOMETHING. Even if we Rope Drop if it's early enough to get a couple hours to do something, then CRT, then off to the airport. Isn't there an exit right by the castle with buses or no?? This is what the TA told us when booking the ADR. POOH!

You realize you can make your own Adr's right? You do not need your TA to do that. They may not be linked to your Res # but you can fix that later.

This! Try to get better adrs then tell her to cancel hers if you do. Good luck!

Bell services at your resort can hold all your carryon items. You will get little tickets to reclaim them when you get back from MK. don't take it all to MK with you!

Go on disneyworld dot com and click the tab on the upper right that says "where to eat" then "make reservations".

I don't think taking a taxi from the TTC to CBR much, if any,time. You still have to line up for either the ferry or the Monorail, and then once you reach the TTC you have to get a cab for the ride to CBR. Walking to the CR and getting a cab from there would probably be quicker.

There is no exit near the Castle. You have to walk the length of Main Street to reach the Main Entrance, then walk out and down the walkway to the bus stops, which is a bit of a trip.

By the way, if you choose to go to CRT, you will have to check out of your room regardless before you head to breakfast. Check out is 11 AM.

Go to www.disneyworld.disney.go.com and click on the link that says "where to eat" (second from the right I believe). From the drop down menu click "make dining reservations". The just plug in your specs. If it were me, I would check for the next two weeks to get a different day for CRT. Departure day would be too stressful for me to enjoy it.

Yes, it would be a reservation for 5.
