Thanks. And just for the record I'm starting a crazy diet the day I come back but I need to know how much I weigh the day before. That's why I need a scale lol. There's no way I could go to WDW and not have my Oreo covered Rice Krispies lol.

Not from the CR for all those. The boat at the CR does the FW, WL, and CR loop. I've noticed they change order - not sure if that is Captain's choice or just time of day. There is a boat launch at MK that does the GF, Poly, MK loop, and direct boats to WL and FW each over the water bridge.

This is my family's (me, DH, DD11, DD8, DD3) first visit to WDW, so we'll spend a lot of time in the parks. We would probably just use the kitchen at BLT for quick breakfasts.

Thought I would ask all of you CR and BLT gurus out there if there's a clear advantage to staying in one or the other!
We haven't stayed at the CR (yet), but if it were me, I'd go with Atrium Club, but that's because we are a family of 4 and don't need the extra space. I also don't cook or do laundry on vacation so the kitchen and washer/dryer wouldn't get any use....LOL. But with a family of 5, I agree with the pp's that the extra space would be a plus. Good luck with your decision, but I think either one would be great .

I would upgrade and try CL . We did this on our first stay at the WL back in 2004. We originally booked a standard view room (no discount) and decided to upgrade to CL after a promo came out that made the CL room the same price as the standard room without a discount. To this day, I don't regret that decision......we had an awesome CL stay and we remember it like it was yesterday .

Thanks for all the great advice! We are arriving early on check-in day, and our flight out leaves in the late afternoon...So I'm thinking it could be a plus to be able to go to the Atrium Club before our room is ready, and also have someplace to go in case the kids need some downtime before we leave for the airport.
We'll have a great time at either place, but what a tough decision!

Question Pack n play location?

We're staying in a studio in Sept. I have heard the idea of placing a pack n play in the alcove by the door. I was wondering though, had anyone ever attempted to put the pack n play in the kitchenette area? I believe the width of the pack n play is 28", it didn't seen to unreasonable to me that the kitchenette area might accommodate that, but I could be way off?! I also own a mini-size pack n play that is 22.8" wide that I could always bring instead. Doors anyone know the actual width of the kitchenette area ?
Thanks!

In addition to the pool bar, you can walk over to the Contempo Cafe for drink refills. Let us know if you have any other questions
Thank you so much!!

We're only a family of 3 and we don't use the kitchen, but having two bathrooms and your own master bedroom with jacuzzi makes the vacation so much more relaxing and enjoyable in a one bedroom at BLT. Even the washer/dryer is a big time saver and having two balconies and a king bed is great, too. For your family size, I definitely recommend the villa Vs. CL. In fact, I would have booked a one bedroom again, but it's sold-out with our discount, so I booked Atrium BLV, which is our favorite view.

I would book CL with a BLV over TPV and no CL - that's a no brainier to me!

I don't have an answer, but hopefully someone else will. I can tell you that the Studios are actually smaller than a STD CR room, so it will be a tight fit, I would think.

I don't remember the size of the space, but I can't imagine WDW would have built those smaller than 32 inches door way.

Trying to decide if I should do online check in. Have never done it at other resorts but we are arriving around 9:00PM and wondering if it will help us get our room requests. Any thoughts or experiences??

Patio or upper floor with no balcony? (Deluxe room so there aren't really any other requests I could make.) Anyone know what the view's like from the second or third floor? Or would you go for the patio?

I would also do the 1br for sure! The older DDs can watch tv on the couch while you and the baby go to bed. And two bathrooms? Priceless. We aren't much for eating "in" on vacation but it was great for breakfast and snacks. One night we also had dinner in too which was a relaxing break. You can get very tired, very quickly. So nice to have the space to unwind and the set up is great for your family.

That looks cool. If I remember correctly, that has to be on the MK loop and therefore go through the CR, right? I think it can't be on the Epcot loop since that goes through the park, and Disney can't have a "ride" with Marvel branding in a park in Orlando because of the Universal contract. Sorry for being
