Is it intended for children or would a teen enjoy it (or be terribly embarrassed?)

Did you get a newly rehabbed room? The crowds must be very low right now

I was wondering this as well. I have two boys, a teenager and a toddler so I'm always trying to balance the two. My oldest is fairly tolerant of the things we do for the youngest as he knows we do things for each though. With Peter Pan and pirates I think the youngest would really like it, and I suspect my 13 year old would too.

We have stayed at the Contemporary numerous times. This trip will be our first time staying at BLT. Does anyone know what room numbers the grand villas are that have a MK view? We would like to try to request one. How far in advance should we request?

Are you using DVC points for the grand villa? If so you book lake or MK view. Did you book a cash reservation? I'm surprised if grand villas were available for cash. I thought they always sold out on points.

Work2Play's BLT Villa Views thread is the ultimate resource:


http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082

Room and villa requests can be put into your reservation at any time. Just call the WDTC and have them place your request in your reservation. Best to do it at least 5 days prior to arrival so the room assignor sees it when it's dropped into the resort's reservation system.

Did you get a newly rehabbed room? The crowds must be very low right now
Definately not a rehabbed room, it is bad need of one. The bedding is very stained and shabby looking. Needs a facelift but we still love the view Unfortunately we had to have maintenance come last night and fix the toliet, there was huge puddle on the floor but it seems to be ok now and we had to have mousekeeping come and change the pillowcases on one of the beds since there was blood on one pillowcase when we checked in

Bu watching the fireworks on the balcony last night was worth every penny of the trip as usual The castle was still changing colours when DD woke up 6:45am this morning. We just came back form a great 1st day at MK, it was awesome and the crowds were light this morning but wait times are up to 60 min for the big rides this afternoon. We made good use of FP and basically walked on everything. Now off to Narcossee's for my favourite lobster

You have much more patience than I do. I don't think I could have stayed in that room. So sorry you had a really rough start. I hope everything is better now and you had a great meal with lots of butter! Let us know if you find out anything about the room rehab

Oh no, not a good start! Glad to hear they got things sorted quickly for you and hopefully the rest of your stay is perfect! Maybe I should add Narcoossees to the list of ADRs for the next trip...DH loves lobster!

I don't remember the exact numver but it was the 14th and 15th floor. It ended with 30. We were looking more towards the lake but when you stepped out and looked right you still had a great view just not a direct view. I know my bil wanted a slightly better one but this room was ready at 9am so how could we argue.

We still had a great time and it was wonderful

Welcome!

Tinkgurl: According to Work2Play's BLT room view/number thread, the MK Grand Villas end in even numbers from 16-30. There is a chart on the first page of her site that's linked to on the BLT/first page of the thread and six posts above.

Glad you had a nice time. Did anyone get lost in the GV, dona?!

Thanks everyone! Even if we don't end up with a MK view room, we will still have a great time. Just thought it never hurts to ask!
