When we were there in February the 14th floor club level had small bottles of water but you had to ask for them.

You did mention that and thank you for reminding us. I wonder if maybe that's because they have so few guests up there and all the suites so they feel they have to still have the small bottles if requested?

Thank you for the informative thread...I have been wavering recently, giving up a great deal at BC CL for the CR CL for our Aug trip. Discounts for CR have been significantly lower this year and the room rates, significantly higher so it's gonig to be a close call...praying for a PIN.

Nonetheless, enough ranting, I have a question about the latest Room refurb at CR. I saw the great photos of the Tower Club King rooms which were POST-Rehab. Were all the rooms rehabbed recently or just the Tower club level rooms?
Thanks.

Definitely! But that isn't until October. We have our AKL Kidani stay starting on Friday!! I think we have a Wave ADR (my wife does all those things), but we definitely have an Artist Point ADR, so maybe I'll do a quick post on a different thread.

All CR rooms had the recent rehab!!
Just like Lindsey Lohan!

This is great to hear! It'll make things so much easier for us. Thanks!!!

Excited beyond words to be staying in the Tower (MK view) next week. Checking in Friday morning for a 6 night stay with my DM and DD. Was so disappointed the monorail would not be operating on its regular schedule though... just my luck, eh. Anyway, it looks like we'll only be inconvenienced the day we arrive (we won't be able to hop on after dropping our stuff off in the room) and on Sunday when we have to get to the Poly for a 'Ohana ADR at 5:15. So, what's the quickest way to get to the Poly from the CR when the monorail is out of commission?

Bus. Lots of busses running that loop.
FYI. It is back on line every day promptly at 7 pm!

I'm not as Disney savvy as most of you so I'm not sure if this is the correct location to share some CR experiences from this week....

Just returned from an 11 night visit, garden wing. A few evenings, as we relaxed in the quiet pool, we heard some of the pirate tour groups head down the dock toward the boat and we were in stitches, laughing. It sounds like so much fun! The tour leader was hilarious and it sounded like such a good time, we decided to add it to our Disney Bucket list!

There are a couple different ones, I believe. I'll be researching! One has Captain Hook, himself, on board. The one that we heard departing did not, but the guide had a great time hollering over to him with his best pirate trash talk as they were boarding.

So funny!

I'd also like to add that I think the CR pool staff is absolutely first rate and they do a great job with the afternoon pool deck games for the kids.

Could someone please refresh my memory on the "new" monorail hours/operation schedule? It's been a while since we stayed on the loop. Also, is it something temporary or permanent?

Thanks!

Not permanent! It's only for maintenance but a pain in the butt nonetheless. Hours when it will not be available are 11:30AM-7:00PM. It should be back to it's regular schedule after this month. I'm hearing April 1st. Hoping this is true.... if not sooner. Just realized this is only on weekdays. Assuming the weekends are normal operating schedule. This isn't going to be as bad as I thought it would be. No worries for Sunday. I should be able to take it for our 5:15 ADR. Whew.
