Wdw kook thank you for the quick reply, I have a few questions. Is it awkwardard to get to the dresser? Is there a soft chair/ ottoman? It looks like the one bed is really close to the sliding doors? Am I right?

I have been having similar turmoil for our upcoming late July 2014 trip. I really want to stay at the Poly but with the impending DVC construction, I am looking for the best alternative. I keep seesawing between GF and CR because it MUST be a MK resort. We have stayed CR garden wing before but would not again because we really like a balcony. The tower rooms are convenient but the lack of theme(just our opinion) and here it comes.....the picky Seinfeld part.....no "good" sitting chair. We spend a lot of time in the room decompressing from the park crowds and I NEED a real chair to sit and chill out. Those awful desk chairs just don't do it for me. I put up with one of those our last trip to CSR and I am done with all that. I was hoping with the last room upgrade that they would add it but they did not.

SO......we are planning on GF even with the old lady décor. Hate the bedspreads and wallpaper but I am crossing my fingers that the rumor is true and they will do a soft goods refurb (and go to white duvets at least) after the Poly room refurb is complete.

Now if GFDVC causes really large pool crowds at GF....we might be back at CR Decisions are so hard sometimes......
We are in the same boat, I was doing gf, then I realized there were only 4 very small dresser drawers.......then I talked myself into cr, now I am also put off by the no chair? My parents both use that chair. .....ugh I wish they would just leave the poly alone so I would not have to worry about this stuff, lol. Now I might be back to gf, icky decor and all

Glad it will be in operation when your DGS is there with you.

You're welcome!

I've never found it hard to get to the dresser. The chair can be pushed under the glass desk. There isn't an easy chair, only the desk chair. The bed is fairly close to the sliding glass doors, maybe two feet or less? But, the door that unlocks to the balcony is closer to the daybed than the queen bed, if that matters to you.

Does anyone know if the stations at the pool close or are they always open?

For the day. I'm an early riser (work at 7am) and don't like wake my family. So I dress in the dark, slip out of the room and go exploring for a couple hours. Need my coffee.

Contemporary Grounds is the name of the coffee shop in the lobby of the CR.



It's open from 0530 - 11 PM. They also serve baked goods.
