Could someone share with me photos of 2 bedroom (either dedicated or lockoff) units at BLT that have MK views.

I am specifically interetested in photos that were not taken with a telephoto lens because I want to see exactly what you can see with the naked eye.

If you could tell me what floor and what room also that would be great. I am trying to figure out what request I would need to put in for the best view possible.

This is for a possible trip down the road. If this is the right resort for me I need to start saving now!

Thanks

Well it's been my experience that you a camera doesn't see the same as the naked eye. To my eye it appears much closer than it shows in a camera, but I've always had good distance vision.

My DSIL stated in 8022 in October and DH took this photo from the living room window. He doesn't remember if he used the zoom on our point and shoot Nikon.

I'll look through her photos and see if she has some more photos.

I found the photos taken by DSIL taken from the balconies of the 2 bedroom some were taken from the MBR balcony and some from the second bedroom.

ok... so I get the whole MK view thing... but what I don't... the extreme markup in points to look over a parking lot.

Sorry... I just think that the Lake view is much more serene...

I get the whole "firework view" and stuff... but... they could have planned out the parking lot a little better.

I guess its the "glass is half full" or the "glass is half empty" debate. There is so much to watch from the MK balconies: the comings and goings of monorails; the ferries on the Seven Seas Lagoon; the Castle; the Magic Kingdom Train, and, of course, the fireworks. You can see the Electric Water Pageant on the Seven Seas Lagoon, and, at times, you can hear the music and characters from the MK parades and the shows in front of the Castle. You don't really notice the parking lot unless, well, you want to notice the parking lot.

One thing we noticed is the rooms have a wall of glass, so you don't necessarily walk out on the balcony and look down at the lot-you can be on the couch or at the table, even in the king bed and you loose sight of the lot-especailly at night. Of course higher the better helps as well. Also a camera pulled way in is not accurate as others have said, the castle does not look that far away-again esp at night when lit up. These have some zoom, but in general its by far the best views we have had. Love the train whistle with the balcony door open.

aloha,
We just stayed at BLT on Nov 5 an had a MKV. It was pretty bad. We were on the 4th floor pretty much dead center. We had a great view of the parking lot and the top of Space Mountain and the tips of the tower of Cinderella's Castle. You have to have a very high floor to have a decent view of the Magic Kingdom.
It is not worth the price of points for MKV if you are on the lower floors. We switched to the lake view and to us it was much better. No Parking Lot view.
Glad we stayed only one night. Gave us a great insight about the views of MK.
Plus you get dropped off in front of the Contemporary Hotel if you take Magical Express and it's quite a hike to the towers.


aloha,
