I can't wait to hear about your fast-approaching club level stays. Will you be posting to the RC thread or a TR? Will you post live?
Thanks! I will pop in and post on the RC thread here and there. We are getting so excited!

It will be very fun to hear about your Tower Club stay. It sounds like a great way to start next summer!

The 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units do but the studios do not.

I'm relatively new at this and I am trying to figure out all the acronyms and abbreviations out. What is a Log-orail?

It is the listing on page 1 of this thread of Dis'ers plans to stay at the CR.

It's just a fun way of knowing when others will be there as well.

Club Level differences?

Hi There,

2nd time back to DW, 1st time at CR (last year at Poly). Very excited! Coming with my wife, two kids (3 & 7) as well as in-laws (sorry - don't know the acronyms yet for each). Just made res for two adjoining TPV rooms, but wondering about Atrium CL. Just getting my sea legs with CR so pardon my ignorance, but is the refurbishment of Atrium rooms and the inclusion of suites at Tower the only difference btw the two levels? Also, can anyone direct me to pix of the new Atrium rooms? Many thx for the help. I am sure I can find this info somewhere in this thread, but figured I'd fast-track it as there are so many knowledgable folks here who might be able to help me save some valuable time and directly steer me to the right resource!

The Atrium rooms are the same as all the other tower floors. The only differences are keyed access, and a three room space that makes up the lounge. The floor has a view of the Concourse like all the other floors below it.

The Tower Club rooms were just refurbed along with the lounge. It is also keyed access and has a two room space lounge. It is an enclosed floor and does not have a view of the concourse. They are as of yet no pictures of the refurbishment, but we are all anxiously looking forward to seeing some in the near future. There is a DISer (LuvMySoldier07) checking in tomorrow.

This has been an especially magical trip for us. We've loved our time here at the CR and any of you making trips here soon will love it!
Glad you had a great trip . We've never stayed at the CR but we're trying it for the first time in December. I am getting very excited after reading about so many great trips and seeing lots of great pics .

We will be in a 2 bedroom with twin toddlers. Can we request 2 high chairs? Should I request them when we check in?

You can put it in your reservation but you will still have to call when you get there! I'd just wait.

I don't know how to link my other thread here from my IPhone, but I will link it tomorrow for you! The basic answer for you now is that your dates aren't open yet, but don't give up hope!

Here it is http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3137255
And depending on when you're going in August, your dates might be open now. Today all the dates through a check out date of August 5 appeared to be available in all categories except 2 bedroom standard view!
I think your question's been answered on the thread you started so I won't re-post what I posted here a few days ago about cash reservations, but in general, cash reservations are usually available at the 7-9 month point.

Great! Looking forward to reading about your stay. You've been planning this trip for along time.

I envy you being able to go this time of year. We've never been in June, but we have to go next year right after school gets out due to DD's July/August commitments. It's not ideal at all, but the only way we can do family vacations for at least the next couple of years until DD graduates.

We can't wait for you to get to the Tower Club! Are you there yet?! My DD just bookmarked your Instagram account for me so I can check for your mobile updates. If you can't post here, I can post your Instagram photo here for you.

Welcome! The 12th and 14th CL floors underwent lounge rehabs this summer. All of the CR rooms also underwent a soft goods rehab this summer. All of the CR rooms on the 12th floor (Atrium Club) are identical to all the other CR rooms. There are many links to photos which are in Post #1.

The 14th floor (Tower Club) has 16 rooms, 5 of which are king and queen non-suite rooms. The rooms on the Tower Club level are decorated differently than all the other floors (or at least they used to be pre-summer '13).

As kellylfitz mentioned, LuvMySoldier07 is arriving today and will soon post photos of their Tower Club room. If she posts to Instagram first, I will re-post her photo here for her.

Yes, ask at check-in or press the Housekeeping button on your phone when you get to your villa.

Thank you, Melissa! Unless there is an unforseen circumstance, such as a scheduling conflict, I can't picture myself giving this reservation up. I will admit that we will probably end up doing a split stay (other resort TBD) and not 11 nights there, but this is such a difficult reservation to secure, I booked it for the entire trip.

There is only one other queen room (and one queen HA room) up on the 14th floor. I'll keep you posted on the split options. I figure that any other resort will be much easier to get than this was, so I should be fine getting a split this far out.

Your trip is coming up real soon! Does BLT still look good for February? You're going to love the one bedroom!
