    I am planning our next trip before we have already taken the one in March...LOL...I am sure many of you can relate to that!

    I am looking at the CR and going all out for a TPV...are those only available in the tower??
    What exactly is the difference between garden wing rooms and the tower, besides price???

    I think it would be amazing to watch wishes and fall asleep to the castle at night, I read somewhere which number to request to get the bed facing the right way on here somewhere too!!! You guys are the best!

    Yes, TPV rooms are only in the tower and other than price and view, the rooms are the same in both the tower and garden wing. One other difference between the two is all tower rooms have a balcony, while the garden wing rooms do not. We haven't stayed at the CR as the theme/decor has never appealed to us, but the more I research it, the more I want to stay there, so we are trying it for a few nights after our cruise in December :).

    Looks like we have the same taste! LOL.

    I have always wanted to stay there but always thought it didn't look kid friendly but with three small kids I think it might work out great! I would consider switching for this trip but nothing is available :(

    Looks like we do :). I have never considered the CR because it feels like a regular hotel to me, unlike all of the other resorts we've stayed at. But once I started researching it and looked at pics of the new rooms, I kind of started getting used to the thought of trying it. We've stayed at the GF and Poly, so now I guess I want to add the CR to complete the list of monorail resort stays :laughing:.

    I haven't booked yet, but I will be booking a TPV :goodvibes.
