    one thing you could do is pack them, then not put the magical express tag on that bag. Then you could run over get the bag, take out the pins, and then run the bag over to magical express.

    Hey all! We're packing right now for our trip at the BLT next week! We check in a week from today, but we're leaving Tuesday night for a bit of a pre-vacation stay (and we're driving, so we won't actually be in Disney until Thursday).

    I get such great information from these boards (and this thread was invaluable to me when I was planning my stay at the Contemporary last year) and while I usually only write cruise reviews, I'm going to write a long pictorial review of our stay on my blog when we get back. We have a 1-BR Bay Lake View villa booked, but I'd be happy to try to take pictures or seek answers to any questions anyone here has :)

    So if anyone wants a picture of anything or has a question about BLT, let me know and I'll try to take it or find an answer :)

    Are there any places to charge an ipod in a guest room (aside from a laptop)? Do the alarm clocks have an ipod feature?

    So excited! I just got an email from Disney showing my reservation w/the new 2010 rate change. Can't wait to arrive at CR! Now just watching for a discount code!
    The pics of the splash area look cool! We will be there in Feb, so I hope it will be warmer at least one day to use it.

    Just got my Disney email also, called and changed my sister's reservation to upgrade her to CL level so that my sister and niece and nephew will be on the same level as myself and my husband. :cool1:

    Thanks so much for the splash area photos. I love the expression on the guy in the photo. Almost like he was thinking of jumping in!

    Have a great rest of your vacation. :thumbsup2

    I am guessing the pictures are not doing it justice. I just don't get it by looking at these pictures. So, I will figure it all out in 4 days. YIKES, I only have 4 days to pack ! ! ! ! (2 actually - double YIKES :scared1: :scared1: )

    Good point about the north garden wing. ANd you are correct about the monorail - we did walk back to CR from Mk one night on our last trip just to browse the 4th fl concourse area, then hopped the monorail over to GF. The lines were really long and the monorail crowded that evening... I am just used to seeing very small monorail lines to and from CR during my past few trips. We normally go off season though, and if we are staying late in MK, we just walk back, it's become a tradition for us.

    Oh yay we'll have some pics soon! I'm sharing a 2BR BLT villa in November with 5 friends - we have 3 baths in the unit, but we are all curious to see what toiletries are provided, and how many. Also hair dryers - is there 1 per unit - or 1 per bathroom? Have a great trip!

    Okay, I'm so excited I can't stand myself! I just booked Contemporary MK view Atrium Club level for June 5-11, 2010! I'm sure I know the answers to these questions, but I am trembling as I type so I need some help.

    What floor is this?

    What are extras on atrium club level?

    Thanks in advance!:dance3:

    Just came back.

    Awesome 2 weeks at the CR.

    The staff was very friendly and helped us a lot.

    The view was great. We had room 4226. We were on top of Chef Mickey and it did not bother us at all.

    All that bothered us is that during the second week there was a convention, and these people took a lot of room. And the elevators were VERY slow because of them.

    Here are some pictures.
