Disney WiFi?


#1

Hi,

Whcih resorts have Wifi, if any?

Im assuming CSR has it due to the constant corporate meetings, conventions, etc…

The problem is I will be down in Disney for 8 days and need to spend at least 1/2 hour to an 1 hour to take care of some work. I know, I know…it’s a vacation but certain things can be delegated out while im away but other things must be taken care of by myself.

Also does anybody know of any hot spots in the area?

Thank You.

The Poly is set up for wired broadband access through your existing network card. Cost is $10 per 24 hour period. Contemporary is supposed to have had wi-fi when we stayed there in 2004 in the public areas. I never found out because my wireless card never worked right, but I never knew until I went wireless here at home.
