We have just booked a tower room for seven nights next August, are there any preferred locations / floors I should request? Have all the CR rooms now been refurbished? Its our first time at the CR, looking forward to it!

Can we get 2 high chairs at blt? Should we request them at check-in? We arrive in 11 days.

I started a whole thread on this because you can book on cash sooner than 7 months. It takes a lot of persistence and constant checking of WDW.com, but we were able to book around 11 months out! When are you going?

princessap - I booked with David's. They didn't have a BLT member right away with points for the 11 month mark but 2 days later they found someone. I am on a wait list for the second part if our stay at BCV until they can get someone with enough points to book this early. Have you tried them?

We will be checking into the CR on 2/22/14, and I can't wait! It will be our first stay in a monorail resort!

You're going to love being on the monorail . It's not only convenient for MK and Epcot, but it's close to a variety of dining options at the Poly and GF.

I can't help with location suggestions as we've never stayed at the CR, but wanted to say congrats on booking the CR . We are hoping to try the CR next year.

We always request a high floor away from Chef Mickey. This puts is away from the noise in the morning as we are NOT a rope drop family And also closer to the MK! Our views have been amazing on both the TPV and BLV side.

I just checked the Disney site for you and played around with some dates (I'm a pro at this after having to do it so much for our July trip next year.) As of right now, it looks like reservations with a check OUT date through September 22 are available. If your check out date is the 25, it looks like cash reservations should be open for you soon

why cant i book a room?

I posted this elsewhere but wanted to ask here too! i tried to make a reservation for veterans day weekend 2014 and was told that the ONLY rooms available are club level! Is it possible that the whole resort is sold out? What could cause that? I am so disappointed! There are rooms available at Poly and GF for my dates so what is going on at CR? I really wanted to try it this time Help!!

CR is a convention resort, maybe there is one that weekend.

We'll be heading to CR for a short stay 1/22-1/25. Booked a BLV for 2 adults/2 kids. So excited. This will be my first deluxe resort. Celebrating my birthday a little late (Jan 8) and DHs a little early (Feb 19).

I did contact them but haven't been successful. And I know of someone else waiting with them for BLT in sept as well and no luck either and they wanted a 1 bedroom too. Am really hoping we can secure something soon! I am so excited to try BLT.
