Smile Newbie at Bay Lake Tower Resort

Hi I just made a reservation at Bay Lake Tower in Spring of 2014 and we have never stayed there before, I am looking for some advice on a request to give Disney as far a room location goes. We are staying in a two bedroom standard view ! Please advise.

Also if anyone has any other suggestions about BLT I would greatly appreciate it ( ex. Foods, hotel activities not to miss , Ect. )

Thanks In Advance
Started a family tradition in Oct 2010, when we took our daughter (10 months old) to Disney for the fisrt time, now we can not wait until Sept. 2011 for our next trip back. We promised our little princess that we will take her every year (now mommy and daddy have an excuse to visit Disney every year !!)

We will be staying at BLT for our first time in December. There is a thread all about the BLT on the DVC board. It has an unbelievable amount of info. You may want to go over there and take a look!

Just stayed at BLT last month. We absolutely loved it! Not sure about what to request for standard view because we had a lake view studio. As far as food goes everything you need is at CR. Its just a quick walk across the bridge (located in BLTs 5th floor and CRs 4th). BLT does have pool bar with a very limited selection of food items and a drink station for mug refills. We really enjoyed Contempo Cafe at CR for a few counter service meals. CR also has the Wave and Chef Mickeys for TS. The location was amazing! Enjoy your trip!

They have the boats that you can rent. We took the 2 seater small boat out on the lake. It was fun driving around.

I think this is the best suggestion. Check out the BLT threads and if you want room pics you can check this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082
