Yes it does but the safe froze and I needed to have someone come up to open it. We stayed at POR on October and believe it or not we received better service there! I guess you don't always get what you pay for!

I knew I shouldn't have gotten on the Log-o-rail yet. I have been asking questions here since April, but never made the leap.

And now poor KOOK is going to have to change it. Because thanks to this RO discount announced today, I'm no longer GW-GV.

I'm Tower BLV!!!

AND I saved 50 bucks with the change.

Who do I have to thank for this wonderment? Babyberger!!! This story had such an impact on me. So, once the BLV came into my price point, I HAD to book it. Even though I would have saved $1000 on WL, I went with the smaller savings for my dream coming true. I justified it with the fact that WL is always a little bit cheaper than the CR, but BLV rooms are not always at a similar price point as non-discounted GW room.

When we stayed BLV CL, the kids would literally sit out in front of the door and just watch the monorail come through.
Thank you Babyberger!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so happy I could help That is truly what these boards are all about. And I totally agree, you have to take CR at a decent discount when you can get it!!

I have found the write ups do not always have all the info, it is always best to call And even to call several times if you cant get what you want the first time Availability opens up all the time!

I am so excited as I just got off the phone and booked CR TPV CL for 2 nights before our cruise . The discount turned out to be 20% vs the 5% I thought it was going to be from posts I had seen on one of the RO discount threads......so it's a very good morning for me .

KOOK, if you see this after you get back from your trip, could you please add us to the log-orail for 12/17-12/19 .

WOOHOO I am so glad you were able to get the 20%! It is still a hefty price tag, but soooo worth it!

We made it to the CR, room does have a fridge. CR is not affected by the fridge fiasco. BTW, DW still thought we were at POR until we got to ME. The surprise worked!! Wish I would've got a picture of her face!

So Excited

We were booked at CR in the GW for Oct 30-Nov. 4 with just DH, DD3 and myself but had to cancel because DD21 and her boyfriend wanted to come. We rebooked same dates at AoA in a Nemo suite since we are paying for them. When FD dropped DH asked if we could move back to CR. We are now all booked in the tower with a BLV. I have always wanted to stay here. We are paying $500 more than AoA but know it will be worth it.


Any suggestions on room request since DD3 is a light sleeper?

Also does anyone know if they are still going to be testing MagicBands at that time?
