Can I park all day at the Contemporary on our check-out day?

Hi, I will be staying at the Contemporary for the first time since 2006. On my check-out day, may I enter and exit the Contemporary parking lot all day, even after the 11am check-out time? On our check-out day, we are thinking of packing our luggage into our car before the MK opens, then walking from the Contemporary to MK at 9am while our car sits in the Contemporary parking lot. We will be at MK almost all day on that check-out day, but we may like to take a break in the middle of the day and take our van out of the Contemporary parking lot. Would the Contemporary allow us to return to its parking lot later that same day (our check-out day) to park?

Short answer - Yes.

Longer answer - Your parking pass is valid all day on your check out day.

Sorry about the fridge.
Can't wait to hear more about your band experience! Did you get any parade or fireworks FP+s?

I've been contemplating wearing it around here for a day, so I can report on my comfort in 70s and AC versus Disney in August. So I'll let you know!

Hello. I am sure this question is quite off topic but... My mom and I are sitting here talking about the early Contemporary days. She said I should ask if anyone remembers the small slide on the round pool - the pool that extends into the lake? She said we used to be able to slide down into the lake itself. She said it was not there long and obviously back in the day when swimming in the lakes was permitted. Does anyone recall this? If so any pictures you could post? TYA!

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 .
Well if you look again at the pics I posted a short time ago you will see a hallway shot. Where I was standing to take that pic was in front of 4824 which is the last room before the emergency stairwell and the glass nearest the MK (on the bay lake side). So that room is as "bad" as it could get. The mural and elevators are located in the center of the building and the lounge is to the right if you get off the elevator and turn right and walk about ten feet. It is a very short easy walk and honestly I think being on that end was quiet and nice in that you had an MK view when you walked out your front door. In fact my mother watched the fireworks there. Also this room did not have a connecting door to the next room so we never heard neighbors.

So far from the reports we have gotten back, it seems that the tower rooms have fridges and the GW's does not.

I do remember that pic, but I'm going to go back and look again. Thanks for your input......I get more excited as each day goes by .

Hmmm. I guess it is the luck of the draw. We put in a request because we need a fridge for insulin. I really hope we get lucky and have one.

Are you keeping them on the whole time?

Great, let me know if you keep them on. Are they easy for your 3 year old to take off?

So I got here at 10. Our room isn't ready and the condescending family doesn't want to do anything or and show enthusiasm. Our MagicBands don't connect to the elevator so we have to enter through our regular key cards. Meh.

I've been wearing it all day at work and it really isn't bugging me at all. It was at first, but I think it's because I was focused on it.

DD just turned 4. Right now it's sized so that she can slip it on and off (she just did it this afternoon when I put mine on.) I'm not sure if she can pull it off herself if I make it tighter, but I think she can. I will have her test it for you!
