I think the only times where the elevators might take a bit longer is during the evening after Wishes is finished, because a lot of people will be leaving the California Grill. That has been the only time when I have seen the elevators packed when waiting to get on from the 12th floor, so I was forced to wait for another one to arrive.

Yes they do use a projector and a screen, however I don't know anything about the campfire.

CRFan you are quick to reply no wonder you are "Ruler of anything CR"!

Something I noticed from the CR picture thread. there was a picture someone took froo the fire escape on the northside facing MK. Each floor has what appears to be a small deck with what i presume are stairs to the bottom. can a guest on any aprticular floor(6th,8th 12th ect) step on out there to take pics or will the door sound a fire alarm? @ DLR Paradise pier hotel they have a fire escape at the end of the building and people would go out and smoke there or take pictures.

thanks!

Yes guests can step out onto those small decks on each floors, however I think they would recommend you taking those pictures on the 4th floor observation deck. The only time I went out onto them on the 12th floor I was just curious to see it, however I had my dad stand on the inside incase the door wouldn't open up for me to get back in.

It is a very easy way to watch the fireworks if you have sleeping children nearby and don't want to go any further than the end of your hall, or if you think you are in for the evening and then decide to take a quick look at the fireworks without actually going further than a few feet from your door. The door does lock behind you so whenever we were out on the balcony someone would put a newspaper or some small object to block the door from shutting. You don't hear the music like you would on the 4th floor observation but you do have a great view of the fireworks. It is a decent sized balcony and there were always several people from our floor watching from there.

I will be staying here for 2 nights ( a big treat) and I have a MK view booked. As a guest of CR are we allowed to use the BLT pool?

No you can not use the Bay Lake Tower pool. It's the other way around because anyone staying at Bay Lake Tower can use the Contemporary pool, if they feel like making the short walk over there.

Very excited to be joing this thread! Just booked a Theme Park View tower room for 12/4-12/10 with a 40% off pin code! I havent stayed here since I was a little kid, and now we are going back for our first trip with our son (supposed to be here by now!) Does anyone know what I should request so we have a quiet room without being too high up?

bluechic03,
I forgot to mention that if you want a quiet room I would request one away from Chef Mickey's. Now as for what floor you should request usually people with the Magic Kingdom View want to stay as high as possible, which would mean the 11th floor. So I would suggest the 7th or 8th floor to be somewhere in the middle.

You're welcome and if it helps when you walk on each floor there is kind of a railing, so it's safe to be high up with a baby.
