Does anybody have any pictures of the CR (and maybe BLT) at night? For example, as you are walking around the resort, from a distance...
I'm just curious what it looks like?

it seems like every resort takes on a whole different look at night, and I think that is SO cool! BC and all the white lights, Poly and the tiki torches...even the lobbies look different at night with their subdued lighting (the BW looks really pretty!!!)

what does the Contemporay and BLT look like at night???!!!

There's no way I can justify spending the money for a 1 bedroom or 2 connecting standard rooms. We thought of the possibility of putting DD's pack n play in the outer bathroom (by the tub). Does anyone think this would work? We have a standard Graco pack n play, but I'm not sure if it would fit. Despite waking everyone else up, DD can sleep through anything so I don't think she would wake up if we had to walk past her in the outer bathroom to use the inner bathroom. I know this sounds weird, but I think it might be the only way to make DH's dream of staying at CR a reality...TIA!
Have you looked into The Bay Lake Towers? This is the same problem we have with our kids, and if we do all sleep in the same room, we're also afraid of waking them up in the morning! We've put BLT at the top of our list for that very reason (and it looks pretty cool!)...good luck!!!

Their beds are very comfortable and you won't be disappointed in them.

I don't know if this helps, but here's the photo I took a couple weeks ago

This door is right past that towel rack you can see in the front on the first photo
Thanks for the pictures! (I never thought I'd need pictures of a bathroom )> It does look like a tight squeeze, but it does look possible. We can easily fold up the pack n play when she's not sleeping so we have room in the bathroom in the morning.


I also found this floorplan of the a standard room in CR. Is this basically the bathroom layout everyone has? I think if I put the pack n play right next to the tub there would still be just enough room to open the door to the inner bathroom.

I have been looking at BLT, but if we are paying for a kitchen, DH won't let us be on the dining plan I don't want to cook all of my meals on my vacation, so we're torn

The CR has the most comfortable beds we have ever had in a hotel. I sleep as well there as in my own bed. You will LOVE them.

Garden room

If we have the garden rooms, do we need to go thru the main building to get the buses or we can walk around the grounds? When people say you can walk to MK, is the walkway safe to walk (is it a sidewalk so my 4 son can walk or is it in a busy street and walk on dirt road)? Thank you

When walking from the Garden rooms to the bus station you need to walk into the lobby of the Tower and exit out the automatic doors that are located on the right side by the front entrance, so can't miss them and it's very easy to do. It's also very safe walking to the Magic Kingdom and just before you come up to the road where all the cars go by, there is a traffic light that says when you are able to keep walking.
