I've never seen an Atrium Club King room that's bookable online. I think they might be referring to a King Tower Club room, which is just slightly more than an Atrium Club room. You can't book a Tower Club room view, but you can book an Atrium Club view. You also can't book Tower Club rooms online (and it's closed now for a rehab), but you can call the WDTC to book those rooms. There are only 2-4 non-suite rooms though.

Thank you both so much! I didn't realize there were a few Tower Club rooms that weren't suites. I bet that's what it is since it's a little more than the Atrium rates. Thanks again

The walkway to the MK is going to make it so easy for you to take DD in her stroller. Are you going to do Photopass? I highly recommend it so that you'll have lots of family photos. Also, take a picture at a location you can repeat every year, (I'm optimistic about your returning). It's fun to compare them year to year. Hope your commute goes well.
I had never thought of the same location! Great idea, thank you and yes, think we will do PhotoPass so I have less to juggle

So I'm sure this is a common question, but I am staying at the CR from 12-16 to 12-20 with a TPV, is there a certain location/room no. that I could ask for upon arrival that would make the views that much better, or are all the TPVs pretty much created equal? Thanks guys, we can't wait to go!

I am not sure if the rooms I am thinking of are Tower Club. But in 2010 when I was booking club level, I wanted to guarantee a king size bed and not have it as just a preference. I was given a king room category. After doing research I found that there are two rooms on club level that are configured differently than the rest of the club rooms with weird bathroom layouts. I found pictures somewhere...sorry I don't remember where...and didn't care for the room or the bathroom. I called a few times and on CM finally confirmed I would get one of those rooms. So I changed my reservation right away. Sorry I couldn't provide more information. Good luck and enjoy your stay.

Thank you! I'll have to do some digging around and see what I can find out. Please let me know if you happen to come across the pictures you saw.

Hey Kook, can you adjust my dates for the Logorail?

We were able to extend our dates at the CR now so we'll be there Sept 1-13. I cancelled our days at YC because the CR opened up and we can get the convention rate for the whole stay (saving alot of $$$). Even with a 35% off PIN code, it was $200 more per night for YCCL

Thanks!

In case you didn't find it yet, I did some searches and found the information about the King Room category-Club Level rooms. I believe there are only two on the Tower Club level and are the only non-suite rooms. Here are the links for the two rooms:

http://contemporaryresort.net/room4911.html

http://contemporaryresort.net/room4912.html

This site says these rooms are the two least expensive rooms on the Tower Club Level and are probably the two worst rooms at the Contemporary Resort. The pages have more information and a many pictures.

Hope this information helps.

That's amazing! Thank you so much! It's so interesting that they say they're the worst rooms in the whole resort. That one bathroom is pretty awful. Very cool to see. Thanks again! (This is why I LOVE the DIS!!!)

We're still trying to decide what/how we want to book. 2014 packages won't be released until July 10, so I won't have definitive pricing until then, but we will have 4 adults and will basically need either:
3 separate rooms
OR
Something with 2 bedrooms and a sleeper
OR
Something with 3 bedrooms

Two more things....

1 - do they still put the Wishes music on the TV channel? When we stayed in a TPV room in 2008 that was so cool and its part of the reason my mom wants to stay here, but I feel like I remember reading that they stopped doing it?

2 - what on earth is going on with the new bus stop area and how long is it going to be that way? When we were there 3 weeks ago we stopped by the CR to do some shopping and they told us the bus stop was now this makeshift camp tent back by BLT. It was really small, only enough seats for 4 people, unmarked, and seemed a little unusual.

There were two, but with the just completed 14th floor rehab, I don't know if there is a new configuration.

I've added you to the Log-orail. All of the TPV rooms offer unobstructed views of Seven Seas Lagoon and MK. Frequent requests are:

~Odd numbered room. As you lie in bed, you'll face MK.

~High floor. Some like a more commanding view.

~Away from Chef Mickeys. Some don't want to be near the ongoing "Celebration" song, though it's not easily heard with the door shut and AC fan running.

Yes, you were on the Tower Club level before you changed. Just curious, was your request granted for a King on the Atrium Club level?

Yippee! That's great that you were able to get that amazing rate for almost two weeks

Yes, Wishes is still on channel 20. But, I can't answer your CR bus stop question

Before the rehab, there were actually 5 non-suite rooms on the Tower Club
14th floor. Two were kings and three were two queens. The two kings were both on the MK side. There were two with the two queen beds on MK side with one being on the Bay Lake side. If you booked a king then you would obviously get the MK view but you could not be guaranteed a view when you booked the two queen room.

Having said all that, who knows if it will be the same when the re-hab is done. I do not know if they will keep the same basic room set-up and just re-hab the furnishings, etc. or if they will actually change some of the room configurations.

My fiancé and I are planning on staying at the CR in Sept '14 for our honeymoon/1st anniversary. My biggest dilemma is whether or not to go with the 14th floor "standard" room (bigger balcony) or 12th floor atrium club room... My biggest wish is to have a MK view and be on the north side of the building closer to the fireworks... I've seen maps of the 14th floor but how about the 12th-do any exist anywhere?? CR Fan where are you??? Anyone have a 12th floor plan/pics of the 12th floor rooms??? (I've seen the atrium lounge-it's awesome!) but looking for some pics of the 12th floor MK rooms/balconies etc etc. thanks so much!
