Are all CR's standard rooms in the Garden WING?

TIA
Garden Standard View, Garden Garden View, and Garden Deluxe, as well as two types of suites (one is a hospitality, one is a one bedroom) are in the Garden Wing.

I guess I should have asked if there were any standard rooms in the main building? I would love to stay in the main building but am not sure I can justfy the price.

Tower options are (from least $ to greatest $):

Tower-Bay Lake View
MK View
CL 12th FLR (Atrium) Bay Lake (which is oddly called "standard view")
CL (Atrium) MK
CL 14th FLR (Tower Club)
14th FLR suites

You're welcome.

BLV is what we always book, it's my DH's favorite view. He prefers it over MK because he doesn't like the parking lot down below. You'll see the Electric Boat Parade each night and, if you ask for an odd numbered BLV room, your bed will face toward WL/FW/Epcot instead of toward BLT.

My family and I are going with the Bay Lake View on our next two Contemporary stays.

For this August if we wanted to stay Club Level on the Atrium Club floor we have no choice because they did not offer the Magic Kingdom View with the 4/3 deal.

For this December we went with the Bay Lake View on the Atrium Club floor with the AAA discount because it was less expensive then the Atrium Club - Magic Kingdom View.

Now even though I do enjoy the Magic Kingdom View, the Bay Lake View is just as great and there is something nice about looking out the window at the water. Plus it's still in the Tower and what can be better then that? So crystal273, I think you will enjoy it a lot.

Club Level tip #4

I just added Club Level tip #4 to the 1st page in the Club Level section and here it is.

If you want to purchase thank you gifts for the Club Level Cast Members that work on the 12th and 14th floors, the gift can be no more then $75.00 in value.

Just curious, who actually determines the value of a gift?

I am guessing it must be the managers of each resort.

I have a question about the Sand Bar - are there seats at the bar, or is it just a walk up window?

Thanks!

There are tables just to the right off it and it's a walk up window to order your food and another one where you pick up your food.

Hello, everyone! I am a frequent poster on the Poly boards and hopped over here for some info on our next trip. We just got back from the Poly 3 weeks ago and we loved the resort, especially being on the monorail line. I am thinking of going to WDW again next February, but it is peak season and I just don't think I can swing the Poly again this soon. I was wondering if anyone could offer some info on the Garden view wing....how far is it to walk from this wing to catch the monorail? The fireworks were a big deal for us at the Poly, and I was reading here that there is an observation deck on the 4th floor...does it get really crowded, or can you show up a few mins before the fireworks start and catch the fireworks? Is there anywhere else besides the CG to watch them from the CR? Any other advice you can offer about your experience in a garden view room...did you feel like you missed out by not staying in the tower? TIA for your help
