    Even those this is not a resort question, would you mind peeking in at H&V for Breakfast or lunch and see what characters are greeting? I am hoping they started adding Sofia the First.

    Oooh, I've been hoping Sophia the First starts appearing there, also! I also heard DocMcStuffins may be joining the crew :)

    Has anyone stayed in a garden view room recently? My DW and I will be staying at CR in a garden view room Aug 1-8, and I'm a little worried. There are several poor reviews in trip advisor from recent visitors regarding cleanliness of the rooms.

    This may sound silly but is there enough room in a closet (not in the master bedroom) to store a folded up jogging stroller?

    Quick question...we got back in the 19th from our stay. We had a TPV and despite having a leaky ceiling one night and having to change rooms at midnight, we had a fabulous time!! My question is, we weren't offered a bounce back offered while we were there. Do they normally offer this to everyone? Is it something they may mail to us soon? I probably won't be going back within a year but with the right offer, ya never know!

    I'll take a peek in and see who is out and about. :thumbsup2

    You got it. :goodvibes

    Feel free to friend me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, there will be lots of trip updates as we go along, and yes, another TR once we get home!

    The Bounceback offers are now in the welcome packet you get at check-in. Anytime you're a guest at a Disney resort, you can call extension 8844 to see if there's a BB offer, whether you got the flyer or not. But you have to book while you're still there, once you check out, you can't book a BB anymore.

    Like Missyrose said, it's in the packet, but in addition, I think (not 100% sure) the current bounceback is only until the end of this year.

    The bounce back offer was in the "Dreams Come True" (I think that was the name of it) binder that is in the room. It was not in our welcome packet in Dec or Feb. but I did find it in that binder both times.

    LOL!!!! DH doesn't even like driving to Fort Lauderdale for dinner ;) But a fall weekend trip just to get our Disney fix may be needed.

    Does it need to be folded? I recall there were several places for our jogging stroller to fit, opened...like just inside the door (since you aren't opened up to a 2br) or inside the master, on the wall with the drawers/TV. There is a closet that houses the highchairs/PNP, so if folded and tucked away is needed, you could put it in there.

    We stayed at CR in a garden view room at the end of January for 5 nights. I loved the room & the view and I didn't have any issue with the room not being cleaned. It was always cleaned (& vacuumed) by the time we returned to the room. I know the kids tracked sand in from the beach a couple of times, and it was always gone by the next day. We REALLY enjoyed our stay there! :)

    I tried to switch our reservation this month from the Poly to CR, but all that was available was TPV CL and it would be about $400 more to switch. Looks like we will have to wait for October to stay here.

    Do you mean garden wing room? We are considering this for our next trip in 2014.

    Thank you for the info! No, it does not need to be folded. I just want it to be out of the way and not "visual clutter."
