From asking on here and my TA, you can get AAA room-only discounts at Disney still. The catch is that no packages can be added through Disney, so no dining plan. You can book direct with AAA, though, and get a package.

We really want the DDP, so we will just stay with what we have.

The rooms are the same. The tower is nice because you feel like you are part of the action! Close to food, shops and monorail. However the convenience of being near the beach and pool area are plusses for the GW. Also that area is more relaxed.

If a balcony is important though then go with the Tower. I thought I would mind not having a balcony on my GV stay but I just put a chair in front of the window and that worked fine for my morning coffee.

Good luck deciding!

Thanks for the info, of course that would be going on during our trip. But I think the weather next week might be too cold.

From what I have heard, Disney and AAA are ending their affiliation...so I think they AAA members just won't get those added bonuses anymore.

Tower floor views

Can you please tell me if there is a way to request a certain floor in the Tower, MK view?

The lowest floor is the 5th floor - isn't there where the monorail goes by - on the MK view side? Do you hear the monorail whooshing by?

Are the views of the MK pretty good from the 5th floor?

This is what shows up for online check in:



The odd numbered rooms on MK view will give you a view of the castle from your bed.

You can call CRO and put a note in there. J

Also you can make a request at check in too. I wanted a king bed last May which is not a bookable category or an option at checkin.

I had a 7th floor room once and loved the view from there.

Also the MKV rooms on same side as monorail so you can't see it from your door/hallway.

The most noise comes from chef mickeys. If noise a problem request to be on opposite end.

Hi everyone-- we are staying at CR for the first time later this year. Right now we are booked in a lake view room in the tower. Any advice for a quiet room request?

My husband likes Poly, but we are nervous about construction. I've always wanted to try CR, so hoping to make it a nice getaway for him too.

thanks!

What I've seen on the 2009 Contempoary map, the rooms in the Garden wing are not in Odd or Even, but will have view of the pool, the water bridge, Bay Lake, and the parking lot, depending on where in the Garden Wing the room is.

Actually, the lowest floor on the MK side of the Tower is the 6th floor. The concourse is on floor 4 and the monorail platform is on floor 5. The last time I stayed at the CR (about 5 year ago), I was on the 6th floor. You could not hear the monorail but the room did vibrate as the resort monorail passed underneath the room.

This really stinks! We are coming with my 8 month old in a few weeks and staying in BLT. Is this a new refurb? I hadn't heard of it before? We will be leaving once it's open again. Sadness

Thank you so much! We booked a garden view so at the very least I think that guarantees that we won't have a view of the parking lot at least.
