Picking up where we last left off…
We had been staying at All Star Movies, but were making a move to another resort. We woke up this morning pretty early, packed up and took a Lyft to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. We had breakfast reservations at a new-to-me restaurant, the Grand Floridian Cafe at 9:00 a.m. We wanted to get to the resort, check in if possible, drop our luggage, and head to breakfast.
I had stayed in this resort previously in the Main Tower–Theme Park View. I personally love this resort! I love that the monorail goes through it, I love that you can walk to the Magic Kingdom, and I love the quick service Contempo Cafe! This time, because I’m a travel agent, I was able to secure a Theme Park View– Atrium Club Level room for an amazing deal. I have NEVER stayed Club Level at Disney, so was super excited to experience it!
I had done some research and googling about what to expect when checking in, and kept reading to just go directly up to the Club Level check in desk. However, we were arriving here super early, and wanted them to hold our luggage while we went to breakfast, so I wanted to be sure. We checked in at the regular check in desk to make sure our MagicBands were working correctly and then she sent us on our way upstairs.
To get to Club Level, we had to tap our MagicBands on the Mickey. Notice there is no floor 13!
There are small check in desks as soon as you exit the elevator, so we stopped in there. They gave us some information and then told us to enjoy! Of course we had to check out the lounge before going to breakfast.
The Lounge schedule was as follows:
- Coffee 6:30-7:00 a.m.
- Continental Breakfast 7:00-10:30 a.m.
- Afternoon Refreshments 12:00-4:00 p.m.
- Contemporary Flavors 5:00-7:00 p.m.
- Desserts and Cordials 8:00-10:00 p.m.
The view from this lounge is amazing, as you can see Magic Kingdom!
I thought the selection for a continental breakfast was very good!
We didn’t have a lot of time before we had to get on the monorail to head to the Grand Floridian for our breakfast reservation. That’s up next!
