Outer Rim in Contemporary ?

Just wondering if you are able to take drinks from the Outer Rim to Contempo Cafe. Also, would it be totally weird to bring food from Contempo Cafe into Outer Rim? The drinkers in my family are not too excited about the wine and cocktail choices at the cafe . Considering most nights will be spent at MK for our trip, this may be their only chance to booze it up! Thanks for helping a first time poster!

Yes, you can do either. If you ask for the drinks "to go", the bartenders at the Outer Rim will put them in disposable cups for you. You can basically walk around with drinks anywhere; you just can't take drinks in or out of the parks.

We are doing a monorail pub crawl and were going to end at the Top of The World Lounge (DVC members)....Is the atmosphere/views from the Outer Rim comparable? Last time I was at TOTWL there were soooo many toddlers, strollers etc. Really not a lounge feel at all.

No. The views out the window are not comparable. However, the views of the toddlers and strollers are.

People hang out here waiting on ADRs for Chef Mickeys, most of them using the chairs without drinking. Kind of takes away from the atmosphere. I wish Outer Rim opened in the afternoon so that people could enjoy the view and the atmosphere with a bit more peace and quiet.

Tambu at Poly is the same way but at least they open earlier in the day, well before Ohana diners start showing up.

Well, The Wave is open at noon -- it and Tambu are the only lounges in the MK resort area open before dinner. It's shocked me for years that a hotel as expensive as the GF offers only a pool bar to people who want midday libations.

Yes, this is true. The Wave is cool but it doesn't have the views of Bay Lake or the monorail, though!

I agree it's weird that GF (or any other deluxes for that matter) don't have lounges that open earlier unless you count the pool bar.

Lol.Thanks. I think I know the area.... right outside Chef Mickeys and Contemporary Cafe? If so its more like a waiting area than lounge.

Ever since The Wave opened, my group (and the Contemporary itself, for that matter) have ceded Outer Rim to Chef Mickey's as a glorified waiting area.

That's the one! All the ambiance of an airport terminal.
