I said no, nothing, and nothing was said when I checked in. She double checked my reservation and than gave a speech about the replacement issues and apologized.

Room is really nice. Lots of space to spread out.

Magic bands worked great so far. Now back to the park!
I'm sorry about the fridge, but glad you like the room. Hope you're having a great time .

I honestly don't remember it there in Feb, but I know it is a newer channel being picked up by more and more companies
(I have AT&T uverse and only got it recently). Hopefully someone there now can check and chime in

Have a great trip .

I see from your signature that you are splitting between CR CL and Poly CL. I would love to hear your opinion on both when you return. We are taking a 3 night cruise in December and staying CR CL prior to the cruise and Poly CL after. We've never stayed at the CR and although we've stayed at the Poly before (and loved it ), we haven't stayed CL. I am very excited to try the CR as well as try CL at both resorts, so reading about other people's stays is exciting .

So, did they bring you a fridge after you called or were there none available?
Sorry was at MK till the wee hours of the morning!

She said none available at this time. I plan to go talk to them a bit more today. She honestly made me feel like I was not being truthful about there not being a note or not being told at check-in. And now just discovered our blow dryer is not working. Maybe I am in a room no one else has been in for awhile...I didn't make specific room requests...just one with a fridge. So that is why I was a little disappointed.

Once my hair is dry...back to the park to get all sweaty...why do I bother

They feel very similar to a plastic watch to me. Just the band would be okay, but the spot with the chip is very hard. There is no way my family will be keeping them on in August. I plan to hook them to my bag.
Please keep us updated on the Magic Bands and their comfort level. That is exactly what I am worried about. I don't even wear a watch while we are in WDW.

We are booked for our first stay at the CR in a MKV Atrium CL room for December. It would be nice to be close to the lounge, but I'm wondering if it's necessary to request that. How far from the lounge are the farthest rooms? I know some CL rooms at other resorts are a hike to/from the lounge and although I don't need to be right on top of the lounge, I'd like to not be real far from it either. I know requests are just that and aren't guaranteed, but if the farthest room(s) aren't that far away, I won't bother making that request . TIA to anyone who can give me some input .

We were the second to last room on the Bay Lake side and it honestly was not "far" from the lounge which sits at the center of the MK side. Because of the layout if the tower no room is really far away from anything. Our only request is away from Chef Mickey (because of noise) which puts us on the end closest to the MK which the kids love!

I was thinking everything in the tower was pretty centralized, but I wasn't sure since we've never stayed there. I think I'll just take my chances and see where we're placed because it doesn't seem like there is a bad room to be had (or is there ). Thanks for your input and quick response .

If there is a bad room, we haven't had it we were second to the last room for both TPV (9th floor) and BLV (12th floor) and didn't have a single complaint. My kids love being TPV and watching the monorail come in from the MK. I think the rooms closer to the CM side may get noisy during meal times, but not rally a huge issue.

I echo babybergers comments...we were on the last room closest to MK (btw...great view of fireworks !) and did not find it to be a hike to the lounge. We actually like being away from the lounge and elevators since people can be loud forgetting they are in a hotel with other people ! Your gonna love CL !

Thanks so much for your input . My DH and both DSs are pretty sound sleepers so I'm guessing the noise from Chef Mickeys (if we are close to that) probably won't be an issue for us. We are only there 2 nights prior to a cruise and our last morning we have a breakfast ADR at Chef Mickeys and then we will be heading to Cape Canaveral, so no sleeping in for us anyway as we will be up early. With that said, I'm probably in the minority, but I think hearing noise from Chef Mickeys would just be that much more magical of a stay at the CR (although I'm sure there are plenty of people who would disagree with that as not everyone likes noise, especially early in the morning ).

Thanks a bunch . I am very excited to just try the CR, so adding CL is making it even more exciting . Do you think it would wise to make a request to be as close to the MK side as we can be? I'm sure the fireworks view is good from any TPV room, but I can imagine the closer you are to MK, the better they get .
