The room did not have a fridge but housekeeping did send one up. We did request one for our insulin. The gentleman who brought the fridge said they just received 200 new fridges today and they still needed to be installed in the rooms.

Will check in again later. Off to Magic Kingdom.
Hope you have a wonderful time! Thank you for reporting back to all of us.

My boyfriend and I are going to stay at BLT in February using my moms DVC points. She booked the room for us and they advised her its facing the lake. (Sorry for the ignorance) Is there any where to see pictures of the room or the view? On the WDW website I can't seem to figure out which one it is?

Is the hotel fairly nice? I picked it because it seemed to have the nicest bedding.

Also, will we be able to go to the Top of the world bar? Or is that for club level people only?
Any input anyone has is appreciated.

Sorry if this has been asked.

We start our drive to WDW in less than 12 hours. Our car is packed, except for food items and my boys are very excited. We will spend two nights at art of animation and then contemporary. I can't wait to test out our magic bands and fastpass +. Thanks for all the wonderful tips on this thread that helped me plan our trip!

I'm sorry about the room. I hope the room you were reassigned is ok as far as noise. Hope you have a good time at MK .

I'm not sure, but I think Top of the World lounge is for use by DVC members only. Hopefully someone will be able to verify that or correct me if I'm wrong. Below are links to pictures of BLT. Hope they help .

Here is a link from All Ears website:

What size villa did she book? Studio or one bedroom?

They currently have duvets on the beds, but they might be changed to triple sheeting.

You need a blue member card to get up to the Top of the World Lounge and your KTTW that shows you are a DVC member staying at a WDW resort.

Coffee at BLT

I will be staying in a 2 BR villa at BLT in a couple of weeks. I know that there is a coffee maker in the room. How much coffee is provided? Do I need to bring filters? Thank you!

If you are staying on a DVC reservation, you will only get service every four days. So you will probably have one, maybe two, prefilled coffee packs for the coffee maker. Each pack will make 4-6 cups of coffee. If you want more coffee, bring your own. You will need the Mr Coffee style basket coffee filters since those are not supplied.

Just a FYI....

I was just able to order our magic bands on MDE. We arrive on Sept. 6 - 15. So I guess they are testing in the month of Sept.

I would like to officially all the new CR/BLT posters from the last couple of weeks. I've been at WDW and got very behind with the multi-quoting. We had a wonderful stay at WL/CL, but missed CR/BLT every time we boated past or went to the CC. I plan on booking our July CR/BLT stay soon.

Thank you to all the wonderful posters who answered questions. If your question wasn't answered and/or your name and dates didn't get into the Log-orail on the first page, please re-post and I will add you and/or try to answer your question.

So as not to experience as much post-Disney vacation withdrawal, I booked WL for Christmas today. CR wasn't available at all with the SOG overflow rate, but at least we'll be right next door where there are plenty of fireplaces for this guy and we plan on booking CA Grill as soon as ADRs open up for it.

Thank you for the information! We will not be staying on a DVC reservation..just a regular guest. Will the coffee supply be replenished more often then?
