Hi! I'm adding to the list of questions that needs answering by CR pros!

Can you see the monorails running from CR TPV rooms?

TIA!

Yes. From your balcony you can see the monorail going from the MK into the building of the CR and also the monorail across the way going around to the GF and back to the MK.

Question about the floorplan I am looking for some clarification on.

We have a dedicated two bedroom. Is it correct that we will have one bedroom with two queens, a sofa slepper in the den, a convertible recliner in the den, a king in the master and a fold out love seat in the master?

I see different things regarding what else is in the master in addition to the king bed.

Thanks for the responses!

One more... Are there any rooms/floors that have a better angle for viewing the monorail? Or a certain room request I should make for the best monorail view? Thanks, all!!

A dedicated two bedroom villa at BLT will have a king bed in the master bedroom, two queen beds in the second bedroom, one queen sleeper sofa in the living room and one twin sized sleeper chair (not a recliner) in the living room. No love seat in the master bedroom (anywhere in DVC villas).

Last year, we stayed at Poly and the longhouse we were in was about the same distance from the TTC as the GCH, which we thought was idea - so easy to get pretty much anywhere. I know the TTC is just one monorail stop away from the CR, but is it walkable, as well? And on our last trip, DH would often pop to Capt. Cooks and grab coffe and/or breakfast items to bring back to our room while DD and I finished getting ready - I'm assuming the walk from the GW to CC isn't that much further.

Thanks!
You cannot walk from the CR to the TTC. You'll need to take the monorail or cab. You can walk to the MK from the CR.

We stayed in Tahiti many years ago and also in the South Wing bldg at CR. I think the South Wing building was closer to the counter service (other than taking the elevator/escalator) than Tahiti was to Capt Cooks.

Just adding on to Deb's post…unlike Poly, there is a covered walkway in between the GW and the Tower, so if it's raining, you won't get wet. DH will need to take either the elevator up to the 4th floor or some outside stairs and then the escalator up to the 4th floor. Unlike Poly, Contempo isn't on the ground floor. That's really the only big difference.

As Deb said, the easiest way to the TTC is by monorail as it's the first stop. You could also walk to the MK and take the ferry, but unless the monorail isn't operating, this method would take much longer.

We are here in the CR now. It looks like any theme park view should have a great view of the monorail. All the rooms face the same general direction. It might be a little better to be on a higher floor. We are high and we have a great view!

I could use help from the experts on this thread! I can't decide how to make room requests for my upcoming 1-bedroom BLT Bay Lake View room.

I want to see MK from the balcony which means I should request an even number room, correct?

Ideally I would also like to be at the same level as the sky bridge.

What is the best way to make these requests? Online check in has only a few choices. Should I send my preferences via fax? Wait until I arrive?

It is always best to call and have your requests added to your reservation. If you are renting points, the owner will have to make that call for you. The only 2 resorts in all of WDW that still read and act upon faxed requests are POR and POFQ.

Thank you for saving me the fax fees! The owner did call it in. Should I complete online registration too?
