Thanks so much for the pool area info. I was really hoping it would be complete - I know my six year old DGS would enjoy the splash area. But that's OK, plenty enough other stuff to enjoy.
You're welcome.

I've never personally used the salon, but this is some internet info. I found (though I can't attest to its accuracy!!):

Niki Bryan Spas runs the WDW spas (massages, etc...) and they seem to also affiliate themselves with the CR's beauty shop which is next door to the Olympiad gym where they give massages. This is the link to their website and CR info:

http://www.relaxedyet.com/contemporary_salon.asp

From a UK WDW website, I found this info. which shows some of the CR's salon services, but I don't know when this was last updated:

Glad the links can provide some relevant CR info. As to their being up-to-date, I don't have a clue, since I've never used the beauty salon and I didn't find any other price lists to compare them with. But, at least the links give you a rough idea of what they offer and cost - just assume the prices are going to be higher than listed!

After the question about the Salon was posted I tried to find the information and then I would have added any links to the 1st page. However I could not find any websites, so it's great that you did.

I am curious about these pool renovations and the children's splash area. Is this for the main building, or for the Bay Lake Tower? If it's for the main building/garden wing, what exactly are the renovations? Is there a children's pool already? Also, is there a playground for the kiddos at the CR?

These renovations are for the Contemporary Tower and Garden Wing. Now I am not sure what they did to the pool but they are planting more plants and trees making it look more tropical and adding the kids splash play area. I don't believe there is a kids pool and the playground was taken away a long time ago.

The little kiddie pool that used to be at the CR was next to the playground near the north garden wing...it has not been replaced...but the Bay Lake pool is not very deep...3ft in the center I think....

The playground was removed (along with the tennis courts) in order to build BLT. There are conflicting reports on the re-opening date for both the tennis courts and playground: AllEars reports Sep. 1st and Intercot is reporting Aug. 4th which is concurrent with the BLT opening.

I added a link from their site on the 1st page which is right under the link with the information from Allearsnet. I also said since both sites are reporting different re-opening dates we will have to wait and see which one is true.

Boy, that first page is a constant work in progress - the editing/amending fun never ends!

If both those sites reported that the playground will re-open I assume it's true, because we don't have any proof to doubt that.

I don't consider it work because it's something I enjoy doing.

So... either 9-1 or 8-4 it will re-open, unless it doesn't!
