BLT vs BC studios

Hi All!
We're planning on staying in a studio on our next trip, and I can't decide between BLT ( I have only stayed in the once Contemporary as a kid- never BLT) and BC ( where we love). We usually do 1 or 2 bedrooms, but we don't have the points for this trip. DD will be 2.5 so the proximity to MK would be great, but are the studios that much smaller? And how is the pool? We're going in August, so we plan on a lot of pool time. We're doing a split stay with AoA, so we don't really want to split again.

Thanks for all of your wisdom!

We've stayed in both. While I love BCV, and would normally chose that, I think you should try BLT this time. How are you going to know if its right for you if you don't give it a chance?

If you usually do 1-2 bedrooms than a BLT studio (which is the smallest of all the studios) will really seem small. I would say you can do it if you are comfortable putting your family in a value room though. It depends on how much time you spend in your room. The storage space however I have found is pretty good in a BLT studio (with just DH and I we actually regularly stay there). I don't know your family size but if you have more than just 1 child I would be hesitant to staying in the studio at BLT- if it is just your daughter than decide if the proximity to MK is worth the tightness of he room. I know that I can definitely tell the difference in size between BLT and SSR/OKW and that is with just 2 of us.

I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I agree. We did a studio with DGS last August, and it was fine. We ate cereal breakfasts in the room, and we all liked it.
The pool is zero entry, and there's a splash area at BLT that I think your DD would like. There's also a small slide in the pool at BLT that little ones seem to enjoy.

The BLT is the smallest of all the studios. Most of the space is in the bathroom, kitchen and hallway to the living space. Will it bother you with the beds nearly touching when you open the sleeper sofa? If you don't need the sleeper sofa, it should be fine.

BLT studio will require more points than BCV if you are short on points.

Thanks Folks!

We are used to staying in the bigger rooms, so we might go for BC and do BLT next time when we have points to splurge on a 1 bedroom.
