    Any photos of the check in area? I thought that was being renovated also.

    Thanks

    Go to the first 2 pages to look at pics and descriptions. There are 2 bldg with rooms: Tower and South Garden Wing. Tower has MK view rooms and Bay Lake view rooms. You book these specific room views. The Tower has the monorail, shops, restaurants, check in.

    For the best view of the fireworks, the TOWER THEME PARK VIEW ROOM is what you want. But it is the most expensive of the 2 Tower rooms.

    Tower Theme Park Rooms go from the 6th floor to the 11th floor. Floors 12 & 14 are Concierge. You have a fantastic view of the MK on all floors. The monorail is on the 5th floor.

    Bay Lake rooms go from the 5th to the 11th (no monorail on that side).

    Are you a AAA member? The AAA web site (AAA Carolinas) is showing avalibility for Tower Theme Park View rooms at the CR for your dates ($465/night).

    Really? Our AAA agent is with that branch, and they said it was only available part of those dates. I've left her a voice mail and I'm on the phone with CRO right now.

    I checked the AAA Carolinas web site and that was the only room category at the CR for your dates. Sometimes I've been able to find avalibility on the AAA site when Disney doesn't have anything.

    Good Luck and let me know if you were able to get a room!

    Triplefigs - I wish you luck on finding your Tower MKV for you dates. I'm bummed for you.

    On another question, I have 2 pictures of the lobby from December just after they removed the construction panels. I'll be happy to get them to you for posting, if you want.

    I was reviewing my photos from a recent trip and noticed work along the canal south of the south wing. It appear to be work to shore up the water line - or the shore line. What confuses me is that it appears a one-lane roadway is going in along the shore (from the midst of the garden wing running up under the monorail line) but that could be for the construction equipment access. Does anyone know what they are doing here?

    Well, we got 4 nights in the Tower!!! So it's a 4/4 split between the Tower MK view and the Beach Club. My kids are thrilled to get to go to Storm Along Bay and swim too.

    Hi! I have been lurking for a while now and love this board! Thank you to those of you that have done such a great job! We have two children and sympathize with you, triplefig, you just can't count on everyone being healthy at the same time! This will be our first time at the Contemporary and we are sooo excited. We are booked in a Garden Wing Deluxe room, which I found pictures of on the old board. We are going August 4 and have our 'important' dining reservations done, but were wondering if there were any casual places to eat breakfast that usually wouldn't require a reservation that are in the monorail vacinity (in any of the hotels or even the parks). Thanks!

    If you know where in the old thread the Deluxe GW pics are, I'd love to add them to this thread.

    As far as casual b'fast goes: CS at Captain Cooks at the Poly, Gaspys at the GF, Main Street Bakery in the MK. HTH!

    Don't know, but I would guess for the construction equipment.
