    The CR has the most comfortable beds we have ever had in a hotel. I sleep as well there as in my own bed. You will LOVE them.

    If we have the garden rooms, do we need to go thru the main building to get the buses or we can walk around the grounds? When people say you can walk to MK, is the walkway safe to walk (is it a sidewalk so my 4 son can walk or is it in a busy street and walk on dirt road)? Thank you

    When walking from the Garden rooms to the bus station you need to walk into the lobby of the Tower and exit out the automatic doors that are located on the right side by the front entrance, so can't miss them and it's very easy to do. It's also very safe walking to the Magic Kingdom and just before you come up to the road where all the cars go by, there is a traffic light that says when you are able to keep walking.

    Thank you, Disneymama5816. I see you stayed at the Swan so the bed at CR is as comfortable as the Swan. When we stayed at AKL, my husband called the Swan to switch but they were all booked and I don't want the same thing happening again. We loved our stay at GF and felt the beds comfortable but not AKL. Thank you again.

    The Garden rooms look exactly like the Tower rooms and are the same size, so they should the same when it comes to them being comfortable.

    If you stay in the club level can you order a cake from another resort and have it delivered to your room?

    My best advice is to call or e-mail the Contemporary IPO to see what they say.

    You're welcome.

    Im at the CR now. We are in a magic kingdom view room on the sixth floor. I love it. The CMs in the lobby were great when it came time to check in. We have a great view of the Magic Kingdom, the Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian. The monorail is like right outside the room but it is not noisy at all. The room was clean when we got here and there was even a towel animal in the bathroom when we got here. I will have a better review and some pictures later. Plus there was no wait for the room to be ready we got to the resort checked in and came right up.

    AxlRose330 - If you are taking pictures, did you happen to take any of the new kids' Splash Area by the pool? I've been dying to see pictures of it.

    Only if it's not too much trouble.

    Thanks:cool1:

    I havent taken any picures of the splash area yet. I just saw it this afternoon but I will get some pictures when I go down there next. I just dont wanna look like a creepy weirdo taking pictures of other peoples kids at the play area. I may not be able to post them within the next couple of days.
