If you are going in the near future, could you check this out, and let me know what time the festivities begin? It was so much fun at the GF, I'm hoping to continue the tradition at the CR

We are here and having a great time!!!

To answer your question about the locks, there are 2 on the door, one about a foot from the top and one on the handle. I have attached pictures.

There isn't any campfire here at the CR but they do show movies on the beach.

I have also attached pictures of the gym. Excuse the picture of my husband in the mirror taking the picture

Hopefully this answers all your questions

Something i just thought of. During summer, at what time does the water parade pass by on the 7 seas lagoon side of the tower? Or will we have to go to the beach on the bay lake side? I know it passes infront of MK right asft6er wishes then goes to GF then poly then?????? I think thats how it was.

thanks!

I asked this in an earlier post, but it was buried in my post and may have gotten missed. With my package I booked, I got 1 Spa voucher. My wife doesn't know about it so I was going to surprise her with it. Does anyone know what is all included? It's itemized on my vacation details along with the standard Planet Hollywood Voucher, Mini Golf Voucher, etc....

Thank You!

Leafsgirl36 (and Mr. Leafsgirl36):

Thank you so much for posting the photos of the Olympiad gym; it looks so empty (people-wise). I feel like some treadmills are missing.

Where exactly is it located now?

Hope you're having a great vacation. We've been busy shoveling out from record snow here in VA.

this is from mousesaver about the spa voucher

So it's only a discount voucher? There's no description in my itemized package description. They make it sound like it's a free spa treatment (massage) or something like that. Thanks for looking that up for me.

Maybe WDW should change the wording to say Bay Lake View so people don't get confused thinking they don't have either specific view reserved.

Our vacation is going wonderful....having a blast!!!! My husband said he took pictures of all the treadmills,the only thing he didn't take a picture of was all the bikes as there were a couple of people on the bikes. The gym is on the 3rd floor.

I actually have a question for you. Have you had any problems with the Monorails because this past December there were three seperate problems my family and I encountered with the Resort Monorail, so just wondering how your experience with them have been?

We haven't encountered any problems with the monorails at all. They have been running steady since we have been here and we used them everytime we went out.
