I only have just decided to purchase BLT in the last few days. I haven't kept up on all of the details about the resort. Can anyone post some? Number of rooms,types, fireworks lounge , restaraunts (I know there is the Wave, how about CS?). Just all that kind of stuff. I'd rather ask you guys than talk to my guide!

We added on 200 points at BLT and were planning a trip in late September but might move that to mid October if we use the developer points in August. Those developer points are great.
DVC Mike your pictures are always terrific BLT looks better and better every time

We are the proud new owners of 160 points at BLT and are super excited! We are supposed to close on 12/26, which makes this the best Christmas present ever!

I am hoping to be able to do our first trip home at the end of September 2009, to celebrate DH and I turning 30. It would be our first kid-free trip in 6.5 years. I think we deserve it!

They just opened a new counter service restaurant a couple of weeks ago. It is located in the same space where the Concourse Steakhouse used to be located. You order on a touch computer screen and then pick up your self serve items and pay for your meal. When you check out, the cashier gives you a pager which goes off when your food is done. We tried the flatbread pizza and thought it was very good.

We bought 220 points in October while aboard the Wonder.

Absolutely cannot wait to stay there.. We will be there sometime in 2010 as we already have a trip this March (SSR) and a 7 day western cruise in Oct 09.

Count me in!!! 160 points June UY bought last Thursday. Friday I was at the MM at Epcot. Crowded, but fun.


Now if only I could get the darned website to accept my registration info, I'd be a happy mouse!

Howdy neighbors!!

Add us to the groupies list! We originally bought into AKV but then canceled because we just knew AKV wasn't for us. Luckily we didn't have to wait too long - we told our guide we'd be back and he was 100% sure we'd be back - BLT was announced not 60 days later and we placed our order before sales to non-members opened up!

We bought 280 points and now that we've gotten our developer points, I think our original plans are going to change. We'll probably take a week at SSR in May with my sister and her family and then just do a long weekend or a 4-day trip over my birthday in November for us only Or maybe take a 5 day trip in December. I think we'll end up banking at least half our points into our next UY, and we might not use all of them the next year since I might not be up for as much travel in 2010.

I'm totally thrilled with our purchase. I love the location and the fact that it's more like a boutique hotel. I love the decor (it's a style I enjoy although I wouldn't want to live in it - it's great to have a taste of it for vacation).

We were at WDW a few weeks ago taking the boat from VWL to MK and my son (who's 7) was looking at BLT as we went past and he turned to me and said "hey, we own a little piece of that?? wow!"

I am glad to be joining this post. My wife and I looked at Bay Lake (we dont like BLT) and were hooked. We are signing tomorrow. We are going to try (MARCH 1) to stay 2 nights in a standard room at the end of September before staying at SSR on the Developer Points. I am really excited too!!!!

We purchased 200 points while at WDW at the end of November. Scheduled to close on Dec. 25th. Currently we are planning for December 2010. Hoping to use DP's in '09 for a trip to HI. I just found out about DVC in October while planning our first trip to WDW. After convincing DW to take the tour, we purchased on the last day of our trip.

We just added on 100 points on Dec 9th. The location is steller and will be a welcome start to our magical vacations every 2 years with the kids. I'm excited to se how the magic kingdom views work out and the viewing platform. My guide said that the platform can hold 400 people max and will probably have no more than 325-350 allowed at one time. He wasn't sure how they are going to handle who is permitted to go up, maybe a possible reservation system he thought. 20% MK views, 70% Lake, 10% Standard views. We are excited and our first trip will be Fall 2010.

Does anyone know the total number of rooms that will be completed at Bay Lake Tower? Will it be bigger than the number at BWV?
