The flyers have phone numbers on them but no address, so if you order a pizza he said you may or may not get a pizza but the crooks now have your credit card information. He said Disney is collecting all the flyers and working on finding out the group that have been distributing them. He said that they usually get young kids to slip them under the doors as the law is more lenient on kids.

Also, we had our bags held at BLT when we arrived as our room was not ready. They have a room there to hold all the luggage so they don't have to go back and forth to the CR to get luggage. :-)
Thank you for the great info. Good to know Disney is aware

I have an odd BLT question. The pots and pans that they provide, can they be put in the dishwasher?

I have a family of unbelievably picky eaters. It seems like it will be best to cook at least a few meals while we're there. There are so few places where everyone will be able to eat something they like! While I may need to cook, I definitely don't want to hand wash dishes while I'm on vacation!

I stayed at BLT in Dec 2010 and I put everything in the dishwasher, including the coffee pot.

Checked in BLT...got the 1 BR room we requested!

We got here at about 2 PM and since I had pre registered online, we sailed right in, our room was ready and we got the room we had requested; lakeview, north tower, even numbered room, 2-3 floors above level 5 (so we can easily walk the stairs from the sky bridge)

So happy with the room, everything is clean and in great condition, and it is HUGE!

We have a beautiful view from our balcony- to the left space mountain and Cinderellas castle and to the front and right, Bay Lake. Every amenity is here, and it's very comfortable. Already did a load of laundry and loving the 2 full baths with teens! When we get home I will post lots of pics and our room number.

Till then, we are here to enjoy and not to worry, we won't order any pizza.

BTW- related to the pizza " scam"; there are brochures by each phone about "security" including the tip "use caution when disclosing your CC # over the phone" and "fliers place under your door are not legitimate communication from the WDW resort"

This is seriously the best resort thread ever. Every time I'm thinking "I wonder if they have this in the villa....", I just flip to the lists and photos of stuff. Seriously amazing.

But how am I going to pass the time until September if everything is so dang easy to locate?

Delayed but quick post for now -- and I will get pics uploaded by the weekend hopefully. Its just been a crazy week trying to get everyone readjusted back to work/school so haven't had time yet to upload them.

We stayed CR TPV and LOVED our room and the view. Watching Wishes from the balcony was incredible and falling asleep/waking up to the Castle view was so worth the added expense!! We stayed on the 9th floor and when we came off the elevator our room was right there smack in the middle which we were concerned about how much noise we were going to hear from people coming off the elevators and walking to their rooms and Chef Mickeys being to the right and the gift shops to the left, esp. with DD being such a light sleeper, but we heard NOTHING. Not even the monorail when it came through.

Loved Nadia at Chef Mickeys, but honestly the rest of the staff at the resort was not that great. The guy doing our check-in that kept staring at my breasts the entire time and made barely any eye contact because of it -- which was pretty disrespectful and rude), the person that took my order for DH's surprise birthday cake almost blew the surprise by putting it down for 8:30 p.m. instead of 8:30 a.m. and I felt like the cake was rushed to get done and delivered. But the cake came out nice, DH was totally surprised and rather than try and rush out to make our reservations at Kona Cafe...which we were a bit disappointed over, DD loved the idea of having cake for breakfast so we just went with the flow.

Pirates/Pals Cruise was pretty cute. You walk to the conference room and check-in where they give you a bandana to either wear on your head or somewhere on your body so they know you're part of the cruise and they assign you a boat = either "Capt Hook" or "Mr. Smee". There's a couple of statues around the hallway to take pics with, and then two pirates come out and interact for a couple of minutes before you go inside the room where there's a buffet of treats from bags of popcorn/chips, ice cream, chocolate coins, drinks, etc. Then Hook and Mr. Smee come out for 'meet and greet', then they leave and the two pirates come back and escort us to the boats where they interact with us until Wishes starts -- then back to the dock where Peter Pan is waiting. The view from the water watching Wishes was beautiful and there's no better place to see it IMO, even from our TPV room.

LOVE hearing you got your request!! We'll be there in 55 days and my one concern/hope is that we get our room request.
We have a dedicated 2 bedroom but I did standard view this time. Last trip we had lake view and loved it but it was really high and my two youngest are autistic and crafty. One of them figured out (3 yrs old) how to get the high up safetly latch open and was out on the 10th floor balacony!!!!

This time I requested a lower room (but not first floor) with no view of any water. They will do anything to get to a pool or anything that looks like it can be a place to swim. Huge danger. Obviously they are always supervised but it still worries me if I turn my back for a minute they could run to water. They are now 4 and 2 1/2. our 2 1/2 year old is completely non verbal and very little receptive language. Our 4 yr old has major receptive and expressive delays. Neither of them have any concept of danger. They are both very sweet and well behaved but sadly do not understand many things which can lead to major frustration and tears all around. Trying my best to avoid some of these situations. Sorry I've rambled so. Just so glad your request was met.

Lastly, you are dodging another major snow storm here (so jealous). Looks like 16 inches where I will be this weekend at my daughters dance competition in Andover

Have a great vacation!!!

Not only are they dishwasher-able, we have a practice of putting everything we plan on using for the trip in the dishwasher when we check in. While housekeeping does clean anything that's dirty, that doesn't necessarily include everything that was handled by previous guests but not actually used and put in the sink or dishwasher.

Thank you toniosmom and psac for answering my question! I've never thought about cleaning the dishes before I use them. You make a good point!

Eeek - I just booked a BLT lake view studio for me and my 3 yo and the balcony does scare me a bit. I had been reassuring myself that Disney would have built with kids in mind, but is that naive?

Does this whole staring thing happen often- or was it uniquely especially out of the ordinary at the contemporary? Serious question.
