We're in our final day of preparation here and will be leaving to begin the long drive to WDW by 3 a.m. Saturday. We will be checking in to the Contemporary on Sunday afternoon and I am so excited that we are staying there I just cannot stand it! I so appreciate everyone here letting me vicariously live thru your pictures and descriptions of the CR. Thanks again!

Are the balconies in the Garden Wing shared or private? It's hard to tell on exterior photos.

TIA!!!

Because the CR is a convention hotel, sometimes the hotel holds rooms for upcoming events. That being said, usually January is a safe time to get a room there. Just keep checking. Disney just released the 2010 numbers and everything may not be loaded into inventory yet. Good Luck.

I hope so! I checked with Dreams too and they have only Atrium available too! At the moment I am looking at $10,000 for 16 nights so may switch to the GF as this is way more than I want to pay!

That's exactly what happened to us. Try checking on line for each night. I figured out that way that they were holding rooms for a convention on the last night of our stay.
