Exactly what I said! I think he stopped paying attention to them because after a few years I didn't want them anymore (how many of the same do you really need?!).

I also collect popcorn buckets (not the shaped ones, the traditional cylinders with park themes and colored tops). They make fantastic catch-alls when at the beach, camping or at the drive-ins! And it brings a little unique Mickey home with us!

Good to know I have options! Thank you both!!

That's the same reason I love them (and why I often buy coffee mugs as souvenirs.) I love being able to use something every day that reminds me of Disney. The popcorn buckets are a great idea!

BLT - One Bedroom Pictures

Does anyone have pictures of a BLT One Bedroom with the sleeper and the chair open. We are staying there in Oct and wondering if it will be tight. Thanks.

The new mugs also have new colors! I loved the addition of the light purple lids

First time stay at BLT with a few questions

I have a few questions about our upcoming trip to BLT.

1. Can we do any of the recreation activities offered at the Contemporary or just at BLT since that is where we are staying?

2. We exchanged through RCI so no TOW lounge, where else can we see the fireworks.

3. Can we take the kids to the Wave for beer tasting or do we need a babysitter and how much is the beer tasting?

4. Finally my BIL and his wife may be coming over to watch the kids for us one night, will they have to pay for parking?

Thanks so much for your help. I browsed the thread but didn't have a ton of time to read through it all.

my DD has wanted to stay here for a couple of years and our friends we are going there with own BLT points so will be fun staying at the same resort as them! we are already decided to have a more low key trip this time, (this is our 8th trip to WDW) enjoy some pool time with our kids (two 15 year olds and one 11) and of course Flower & Garden which we went to in 2011 and loved, can't wait to try all the yummy food pavilions too!

can't wait to stay so close to MK! we've been lucky enough to watch Wishes from Top of the World on two previous trips with our above friends and love the view of the lake!
What a fun birthday! Are the two 15-year-olds sleeping on the Double sofa and you and the 11-year-old in the Queen?

CS? Do you mean CR for Contemporary? There are some activities on Halloween for the kids, usually by the pool or lobby area in the afternoon. But, I don't know specifically what activities, if any, are at CM on Halloween.

You shouldn't have a problem making it. The early ADR buses are meant to get guests there on time. Just tell the driver when you get on the first bus of the day where you are going.

I have photos of the sleeper in the BLT section of the thread. The hyperlink is in POST 1. The living room is quite large and the chair rather small (twin-sized) so you won't have any space issues.

You can participate in the CR activities.

2. We exchanged through RCI so no TOW lounge, where else can we see the fireworks.
From POST 12:

THE WISHES NIGHTLY MAGIC KINGDOM FIREWORKS last about 12 minutes. Preferred CR/BLT viewing locations:

~Magic Kingdom/Theme Park View Tower rooms/balconies.

~BLT Magic Kingdom/Theme Park View rooms/balconies and some Bay Lake View rooms on the north side.

~The beach.

~California Grill restaurant and observation deck (exclusively for guests with same-day reservations only).

~Fourth floor observation deck at CR.






3. Can we take the kids to the Wave for beer tasting or do we need a babysitter and how much is the beer tasting?
From the May Activity Calendar:



4. Finally my BIL and his wife may be coming over to watch the kids for us one night, will they have to pay for parking?
I would think that the gate guard would give them a temp. pass.

Thanks so much for your help. I browsed the thread but didn't have a ton of time to read through it all.
Welcome to the thread! My answers are above in RED.

23 days

Only 23 more days until I can cross CR off my bucket list of Disney resorts. It will be a quick trip, down on Saturday back on Monday night, but it is just to get me over the hump until our big trip to WL in late Oct where we are hitting both MNSSHP on Oct 31 AND MVMCP on Nov 7. What a way to bookend a trip. I hope Atrium Club is as good as OFC.

Contemporary Resort fridge magnets?

Souvenir magnets with the resort logo (sort of)

I've got one from the GF and the Polynesian but I can never seem to find one for the Contemporary Resort at any of the shops there. The CMs there tell me they don't exist but wish they did.

Do they?

Congrats. We are now down to 24 days ourselves. I'm sure you are as excited as we are for the day to hurry up and arrive.

Well, you know that I think the OFC lounge and staff are the best…But, the views from the AC are amazing and the CR rooms are much larger and nicer, I feel. Let us know what you think.

Do they?
This has been a perennial complaint of mine and others. CR just hasn't had any resort-branded merchandise for many years. The print of CR/BLT by Larry Dotson is the only thing I've found in years. It's really too bad because they could be selling a lot of branded merch., like Poly has, if they had any.

~ Question...will that beer tasting event at The Wave only be Saturdays in May or will it be an ongoing thing??

As for the resort specific merchandise...there used to be lots of CR branded stuff...but the items have dwindled over the years... I find this so strange since both of the other monorail resorts... GF and Poly have plenty???

Add us to the list!! After an almost 3 year hiatus (not by choice), we are finally headed back to WDW and staying at the CR.
I stayed there with my parents as a kid about a million years ago, but haven't stayed there since the early 80's. This will be DW and DD's first time there and they are super excited.
Our dates are 8/9--8/16 in a Tower Theme Park View room. Come on August!
