Thanks for the welcome.

I am very excited that our trip is now 47 days away. We love being able to walk to the magic kindgom with our DDs 2& 4. I do have a couple questions though...

Last year the splash area was still under construction. It looks like it is fairly separate from the main pool are there chairs or anything around so that I can sit and relax while my little ones play?

Also can you book the cabana's before you go? Last year we got one and absolutely loved it. It was great with the tv so when the kids started to get tired they could sit in the shade and watch their fav dis movie. While I ofcourse enjoyed the warm florida sun!!

One more - I think I heard on this thread that they do campfires with marshmellows for kids. Is that every night?

WDWKOOK - Thanks for the movie schedule think it will be everynight in March too? Also I have made my adr's I actually think I might I have went a little over board - I have 18 for 8 days (we are doing the dxdp again). We love the dxdp because we find we can get milk and snacks for our little one who isn't on the plan. I just wished is still included gratuities...oh well!

MK Family, we do alot of ADR's as well. In fact we have 21 for an 11 day trip (which is actually a few less than normal for us). We like to TS at least 2 times per day. I am a firm believer in the power of an hour in the A/C at lunch time to recharge your batteries. We TiW now instead of DxDDP (but I sure am going to miss all those snack credits this June when I buy all those bottles of water!!)

Also, while I am thinking of it, there were threads going around in the past couple of weeks wondering why there was no CR availability the week of 6/13. There is now for the tower rooms and deluxe GW. That is how we were able to add our extra night. HTH someone!!

I'm leaning toward a first floor request, so we can have a patio, or would it be better to be higher, since we will probably have a parking lot view?

Thinking we may stay at CR during our May trip, but will just want the std. view. I've realized during our past eight trips that while a view may be nice, we really just don't stay in the room enough to merit its cost.
Unfortunately, I don't remember our room number. I do remember it was on the second floor. Didn't like that as much with small children. I suggest requesting first floor for the patios. I don't think the view will change much no matter what floor you are on.

There are pool chairs located very close or right by the splash play area.

Yes I believe you can book the cabana's in advance.

I don't think the campfires is every night, so I would check to see the dates when your there.

Since there is a 24-hour cancelation policy for the cabanas, you can book in advance. I know that you can book through the concierge when you're staying club level. Otherwise, I think you book them as "recreation" by calling the WDTC/CRO.

Only 6 days until we leave for our very first stay at the CR

Is there anything that anyone wants me to look for or take pictures of. There was someone who wanted me to find out information on the campfires so I will try to get information on those.

Have a great trip!! I would be curious about the locks on the sliders in the tower. Does it have a lock at the top? DD16 has been sleepwalking, and I do worry a bit with those balconies.
