Holiday Snacks at Disney's Contemporary Resort



The completion means the end of this view of construction from the Tower's TPV rooms:

The new bus loop at the Magic Kingdom is now open. In addition to regular single stops, there are several double stops that will accommodate two regular buses or one of the new articulated buses.

Is the Top of the World lounge open to all DVC members or members staying at BLT only?

The always awesome WDWKOOK posted this a couple days ago.

All Disney Vacation Club members staying at a Walt Disney World resort -- on a reservation booked using either points or cash -- can access the Top of the World Lounge in Bay Lake Tower nightly through December 29, 2014. The perk extends to members and others in their traveling party. At least one member must accompany the group and provide a Key to the World card or blue Disney Vacation Club member ID card to gain entrance. Walt Disney World transportation must be used to reach Bay Lake Tower. Parking is only permitted to guests staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort or Bay Lake Tower. Lounge access is not available on select blockout dates which currently includes December 30-31, 2013, and July 3-4, 2014. Top of the World Lounge features a full bar, limited menu of appetizers and seating for approximately 77 guests. An outdoor deck is also available to view the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. Lounge access and seating are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission begins at approximately 5:00pm nightly.

I'm not going to have you add us to the log-orail just yet, but it looks promising that we will be at the CR in the spring . We are booked for the end of March right now, but will probably be changing to the end of May/beginning of June. As soon as we make a final decision, I will let you know if we need to be added .
Let me know when it's official

You're welcome and I just noticed you're doing a Bay Lake split with WL and CR. We've done that same split for Christmas 2010 and with BLT/WL in 2012, but in the reverse order. It's a great split staying on Bay Lake. Can you squeeze FW in there somewhere?

dansdad reposted the most current ToTWL-DVC member access information below from the top of the previous page. Are you planning on going up there sometime?

You too!!

Mine was nice in that I got a cold, which wouldn't be awesome except for the fact that with every sneeze I was thinking "at least I'm having this now, and now in 10 days while I'm at Disney". Of course, a cold last week does not mean I won't get one next week, but it helped me cope.

8 days!!!

Regarding the AP Discount recently released:


(from Mousesavers)
Annual Passholder Room-Only Discounts

Stay dates: 1/4/14 – 4/12/14

Get a substantial discount off regular “Rack” rates. Pricing and savings will vary by resort type and date. Rates not available for all dates, room types and resorts. Minimum stay requirements and/or higher rates may apply for Friday or Saturday arrivals.

Sample rates:
•25% off Value resorts (offer excludes Art of Animation - Little Mermaid Standard Rooms, see below)
•37% off Deluxe Resorts: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Standard/Pool Rooms and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – Standard/Woods View Rooms
•37% off Deluxe Villa Resorts: Beach Club Villas, BoardWalk Villas, Old Key West Villas and Saratoga Springs

Offer excludes campsites, Art of Animation Resort Little Mermaid Standard Rooms, Villas at Grand Floridian and 3-bedroom villas.

This is a room-only offer. If you would like to add a Dining Plan with these rates, there is a special Annual Passholders package.

Book by 4/12/14.
•To reserve a room with the Annual Passholder discount, call the Disney Reservations Center at (407) W-DISNEY or contact a travel agent who specializes in Disney travel, and request the Annual Passholder rates.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Has anyone had success booking at BLT with this discount during this time frame? I know in the past I've read that other (non listed) resorts have been available with the AP rate, and it's not listed in the "excluded" section. We're waiting for an AP rate for July, but the fact that BLT hasn't been listed on the last two discounts is making me nervous!

It says SAMPLE RATES so I would say YES BLT would be included because it is not mentioned as excluded. You can always call and ask CRO to be sure
