When this has happened to me, one of the regular check in CMs have waved me over.

Just back from a stay at BLT. We had room 8018 Park View Studio and it was wonderful. The Castle was right in the middle of my balcony. Rm was in great shape too. Very happy!!! Can't wait to go back in April.

I made my room request when I booked through DVC. Are you saying we should call BLT directly as well?

No, DVC is where you have to call, if you made the request already, you're good to go!

First time @ BLT - advice needed :)

Hello everyone!

This will be my first stay at BLT (or any other DW resort) and thanks to this thread, I think I know what my room requests are! Now all I need to know is...how far in advance can I call BLT to make these requests?

I am not a DVC owner, I converted my HGVC points to RCI and used those to secure a week at BLT...so I can't just call DVC to ask for specific rooms. RCI recommends calling BLT no earlier than a few weeks before arrival but I fear that's too late. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

Wow, good question. DVC requests go through member services, cash booking requests go through reservations. I don't know how you would make requests. You can't really just "call BLT." You might want to do a general post on the DVC Resort board to ask how trade-ins into DVC make room requests. Good luck!

7930 MK view (2 BR D) (MK to the right)

A post on another thread reminded me that I needed to post pictures from this unit. I stayed there my last trip and was slightly disappointed by the view. Primary view when standing in the room is the CR, GF, and Seven Seas Lagoon. MK is to the right, and is a nice view when you are right up by the windows.

Is not a good unit for fireworks, as the angle makes the display look like its over Space Mountain. And to watch them in the LR of the unit, you have to basically put your left cheek up against the window. View from the balconies is nice, but one night we left the door open to to hear the music from the room's TV and we ended up with a small swarm of tiny flying insects in the room.

Sorry for the mess in these pictures.

Master bedroom:

View out the LR window:

Do all studios with magic kingdom view have comparable views or are some views better than others?

that is how it looks from all the villa at BLT. because it is not behind the MK - it is much further away behind a lake (safety)

if you want it to look behind the castle - then that view is only available at the Polyn (well in the parks -main street)

disney won't even talk to you until they receive the reservation from RCI - and don't think that happens until a couple of weeks before hand.

but you can try - the phone number should be on your reservation confirmation.

specific rooms are NEVER guaranteed - a request is just a request - hint - the earlier in the day you get to BLT the better. You can check in at 6:30am.

Thanks so much for the information! Unfortunately my flight doesn't come in until later that afternoon so I guess we will just be happy with whatever we get!! :D

I will try calling a few weeks before just to check if RCI has submitted our our reservation. ::fingers crossed::

Just checked in yesterday to BLT after 4 nights at treehouse villas! We have a Lk view GV but to our surprise after check-in we were put in villa 8512 which is an awesome Mk view! It is a HA room so a bit of an adjustment for counter heights and such but for sure worth it according to dd's and their friends! Lol the only disappointment with check in was when they said the room was not ready and they would text me, I told them this has happened the last 2 times with check in and I never get texted, they assured me and verified my phone number. Well needless to say never got text showed up at 330 to leave keys for dd's so we could do grocery and cm said "oh your room has been ready I have no idea y we did not text you!" Anyhoo having a ball love the fireworks from the balcony but also a lake view to boot.
