Plus on my families recent stays without the North Garden Wing building there were a few times at night when we had to wait for another Monorail to arrive, because of the line. Now besides having Contemporary guests in line I am willing to be there was guests for the Polynesian, Grand Floridian, those getting to the Magic Kingdom to get on a WDW Resort bus and offsite guests going to the TTC.
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.

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
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!

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.

Thanks in advance!
The Atrium Club is located on the 12th floor, the extras is a continental breakast, afternoon snacks, hot appitizers and other foods from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM, then dessrt and cordilas from 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Besides that there will be Cast Members working up there from 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM to help with anything you need and when you arrive you can also check-in up there, so just tell a Cast Member at the bell stand when you arrive you have an Atrium Club reservation, so you can be taken up there.

Thanks! I'll see if I can post pics from my iPhone when I get there, but they'll definitely be up within a few days of when I get back (and there will be A LOT...I took almost 2000 on my cruise in May ). If I can figure it out, there might even be some video.

I'm curious about the bathrooms, too (with regards to toiletries and hair dryers). We have a 1BR, which has two bathrooms, so I'll let you know!

No problem. I actually said WOW when I looked out the balcony door as I was expecting to see a tiny tiny castle. The pics don't show it as big as I saw it.

Any recomendations on room requests for Atrium Level Bay Lake View?

Does it matter?

I stayed at the Contemporary several years ago, but haven't seen the rooms in person since the renovations and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the tower rooms have a daybed or a pullout sofa?
