Kook...honestly, this thread has been an invaluable resource. Thank you for keeping it current.
Yes soooo close. It will go very fast for me as I didn't know I would be starting my new job this week. I will be working part time at Target when in opens in our area. But surprise...I get to work full time this week to help set up the store!!

Good thing I have been on the boards and have everything sorted out.

It is going to be a trip full of first...first all girls trip, first stay on property, and using MagicBands and maybe using a refillable mug :

I would be lost without the boards!

Have a question for those on Facebook

Walt disney world on Facebook just posted an amazing picture of the fireworks being seen from a building....can anyone tell me if that is the lounge at the contemporary? Or an actual room?

It may have sealed the deal!! It looks AMAZING!

I'm starting to look ahead toward when Room Only Discounts come out. I've read here that they often overlap with FD

For log-o-rail and purposes of this discussion we are arriving in the World on December 10 and leaving December 17, 2013.

So, we booked a garden wing because I couldn't swallow the 700 per night Tower price, no matter how much I like to spend money on vacation. We are in the Garden Wing.

Now I'm wondering, within the CR there seem to be caveats about the Room only discount depending on which room is booked. So, is GW usually excluded?

I've checked Mousesavers and they don't always list the room classifications.

Thanks in advance Contemporaries!!

Just as amazing except a little further away. You don't have those huge windows but you're outside on a balcony or on an observation deck. It's really magical. The grand Villas windows are so large because they are two story.

I have seen GW rooms included in RO discounts; however, like with any promo, if those rooms are booking up without discounts, there may only be a few (or none at all) offered with a discount. We are staying at the CR for a few nights in December and I'm waiting for the RO discounts to be released as well. I was going to book a few weeks ago, but then once I heard rumor of discounts (possibly) coming out at the beginning of August, I figured I'd wait to see what was discounted and the dates .

I would think if you have a TPV room, your balcony would be the best place. You can turn the tv on to channel 20 and it plays the soundtrack of Wishes right along with the fireworks. If you don't have a TOV then either the observation deck at California Grill or the 4th floor observation deck. If you have a BLV and are staying CL the the CL lounge has an amazing view from its balcony.
