Reading this is getting me even more excited to stay at the CR in December .

Please add us to the logorail. We'll be @ BLT Jan. 25-Feb. 1. 1 bdrm std view. First time standard view. We've stayed BLV @ BLT didn't care for facing someone else's balcony. We've also stayed MKV @ BLT and loved it. We've also stayed @ CR many times. We love CR, that's why we bought dvc.

Will do!! We love the CR. I stayed there as a kid with my parents. Now I'm taking my kids. When my husband and I discussed our anniversary gift we both said Disney :-)

Now I just need the CG to open and I'm ready. Lol

I can't wait to hear all about it . How cool that you stayed there as a kid and are now taking your kids. Good choice for an anniversary trip......Disney is a great place to celebrate an anniversary . I hope CG is open for your trip and that you're able to get an ADR. We've never eaten there but I'm thinking of trying to get an ADR for our trip as it gets great reviews .

If you love a BLV, you can book one and request an Outer Villa so that your villa would not face other rooms, but instead face toward Bay Lake and CR or Bay Lake and SM/MK on the North side.

You will just love BLT and you might find it hard not booking a Deluxe in the future

We are taking a family vacation next June with 11 people, staying at the Contemporary Theme Park View, cant afford concierge/club level so what would be the next best floor to stay on?

Our non CL visit we were on the 9th floor while the 10th and 11th were being renovated. It was phenomenal! Great views of the MK! We were second to the last room closest to the MK.

Saving us from Page 2!

Welcome back KOOK!

I have a question about geography of the resort. When the Fall/Winter discounts came out, it brought a tower room into my budget. TPV was not available (except for CL, which was out of my budget) so I got BLV and the CM made a request "customer highly requests a MK view" within the BLV category.

If, by some magic, this request is filled, and I do get a tiny sliver view of the MK from the BLV category, is that nearest or furthest from Chef Mickey's?
