Thanks!!

My first request would be close to Tower. We stayed in the Tower last month. The laundry room for the entire resort is located in the Garden Wing so I went to the Garden Wing a few times during my stay. When you enter the door to the Garden Wing from the Tower Side, you are close to water play area, pool beach and of course the Tower. The rooms closest to that end of the Wing seemed to have the best location for convenience.

Unfortunately, standard view rooms are not going to be near the beach.

The Standard View rooms in the GW are all close to the Tower because they face toward the parking area and monorail which is right next to the Tower. There is a slight possibility of seeing some of the canal off to your left if you're in a room closest to the canal on the south side. Unless there's an obstruction I'm unaware of. Also, none of the GW rooms have balconies, but the first floors do have patios. I don't know how many king/SV/GW rooms there are, if any - sorry.

It was supposed to be completed by now, but I haven't heard anything yet. I will scrounge around the interwebs later today and see what I can find.

Thank you so much for that helpful info! A patio would be nice so maybe we will request that - it will be January so we are planning to spend lots of time in the parks as opposed to the room but we would love that little bit of outdoor space.

Can anyone tell me about how long a walk will it take from GW room to MK? Thanks!

You're welcome. At the end of the Transportation section of the first page, I have a link to a video in real-time of the walk from the Tower to the MK, which is about 10 minutes. The walk from the GW to the MK is a few minutes longer.

We are staying in 2 bedroom tpv at blt from 11/10-1/17. My 2 year old dgs is afraid of elevators. How many flights of steps will we need to walk if we request room on 5th or 6th floor? Please add us to log a rail. This thread rocks

The 14th floor Tower Club rehab was slated to be completed by "late summer," but I wasn't able to confirm completion. But, here's an older floor plan of the 13th, umm, 14th floor that CR Resort Fan 4 Life once posted:

I'll be glad to add you. If you are on the 5th floor, you'll be on the same floor as the Skybridge which connects to the CR's 4th floor Concourse. I think this is what you're asking?

There's no such thing as a dumb question on my threads so I hope posters feel comfortable asking questions and helping each other out

How is the BLT parking? Usually spots to be had? Also, just in case, is there room service available at BLT? We are shooting to arrive at BLT, check in, and them make MK rope drop. Since the room probably won't be ready and I understand no where to store luggage at BLT it be best to just park and get the luggage out after the room is ready. Do they have carts we can use?
