No carts for guests to use. Either Bell Services or bring your own cart (I have a small wheeled cart that I use).

I would think if the rooms weren't ready that you would have been notified.

And with the Cali Grill opening, well.. let's hope the refurb is complete.

Yes, they had them when I was there this past weekend. I didn't get one however, so can't comment on how it worked.

FYI, I had a brand new fridge (still had the packing tape holding the shelves in place) in my tower room when I checked in last week so I would assume it was installed fairly recently. Hopefully for you that means they've finished installing them in CR by now.

I did notice they don't seem to be any better than that old ones though... still don't keep things fully cold unless you leave the doors to the cabinet open (and mousekeeping closes those darn doors every day!).

Has the bus stop situation at the CR been fixed? When we were there in June the CR bus stop was closed and the stop was moved to the sidewalk area between CR and BLT under this makeshift canopy tent and it was pretty bad. It was a really small area, nowhere to sit, and you had to walk through a lot of construction to get to it (if you went out the front of the CR and past the old bus stop to get there.)

Oh. I was under the impression there weren't any bell services there since no place to store luggage. We will gladly use them!

Parking has been pretty good both times we have stayed there (Oct. 11 & Feb. 13). Room service is available but comes from Contemporary so the wait might be a bit longer than usual. Now that check in is at BLT, bell service is available in the lobby. A cast member will meet you at your vehicle holding an ipad, which is how they start the check in process. Check in is nice at BLT due to the smaller building capacity, which in turn plays a part in the good parking also.

UGH! I'm confused. I am staying at Bay Lake this October and did online check in. When I arrive on the magic express is the online check in desk at the Contemporary or at Bay lake? Not sure where to check in at?

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?
Thank you. I hope he does well on escalator

Thanks for the reply! Getting so excited!

If you arrive on DME, you check in at CR. If you drive yourself, check in at BLT.

It was the regular old bus stop when I was there last week/early this week. I didn't see any construction anywhere in the area.
