Hi Yankee Princess, We will be at BLT in 18 days! We are major Yankee fans, too. DH will be the guy wearing the Yankee hat/shirt or whatever! He will be at the game tonight, hope this one has a better outcome than last night!

We will be arriving by taxi from AKV as part of a split stay. Do we check in at the contemporary or at BLT (which is were we are staying)? We always come by DME so this will be a first for us.

If BLT is the second stay, you can check in at BLT.

Just adding that we always find plenty of parking at the BLT/CR self-service lot. BTW, I'm not aware of any Deluxes that will allow you to use Bell Service luggage carts.

When there wasn't a BLT check-in, Bell Services had to be called over from CR, but ever since, there is now a dedicated BLT Bell Services

I know that Deb answered your question, and it's also on the first page in the BLT section HERE.

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!).
Thanks for letting me know.

Due to check in 2 weeks from today. Work just called an all vacations are on hold until further notice . We were traveling as a group of 5 adults but the reservations were made by me. Can the others check in without me? We have been planning this for a year and I would hate for everyone's trip to be ruined.

Anyone listed on the reservation can check in . I hope things work out for you and you are able to take the trip.

It has been over ten years since we last stayed at the CR in a garden wing room (when the North Wing still existed)! We are considering returning to stay in a TPV tower room this January (trying to decide between that or GV at the Poly/GF).

My question is for those who have stayed in the newly renovated rooms: how practical is the bathroom set-up? We will be four adults (including three women) and noticed that the sinks are in with the shower. The bathroom looks nice, but the sinks don't appear to have much counter space (just the shelf underneath). I do see that the toilet is separate, which is nice.

Thoughts on how the bathroom set-up would work for four adults getting ready in the morning? It seems better than the Poly at least where everything is together, but perhaps not as convenient as the GF where the sink area is larger and completely separate. We are a family (two grown daughters and parents), so don't mind getting ready in the same room while someone else showers.

What do you guys think about the CR TPV?! Worth it over a Poly or GF GV room? I'm a little worried that we might miss those sprawling resort grounds at the Poly/GF, but it might be nice to give the CR another try...

Hmm... all good choices!

I'm sorry about work. Hopefully, they'll lift the vacation hold soon and your trip won't be affected.

Welcome back to CR! The bathrooms weren't re-done in the latest rehab. It was only a soft goods rehab. The sinks do have a lot of space underneath and also in between them there is room for toiletries. You could also hang a toiletry bag up on the ladder-style towel holder that's on the wall. We love that the toilet is in a separate area with a pocket door. But, personally, I think that 4 adults in any regular room could seem crowded. Have you thought about a BLT one-bedroom? I'm only mentioning it because they have two bathrooms and sleep 5.

The nice thing about the Tower is that all the rooms have a balcony and unobstructed views, unlike the Poly. It's also so convenient to be able to walk right to the MK. I also like not seeing those carts speeding around everywhere like at the Poly.

Keep us posted and let us know if you have more questions
