Thanks.

Granted, it was with a 400mm lens, but it was from my balcony.

I could just stare at that castle all day, and night! Just beautiful!
One day I'll talk my husband into spending the money to stay at BLT....

BLT 12th floor, 1BD right in the middle of the building. Don't remember the exact number, but I think it ended in 20. Maybe 8120? It was so awesome!

View when we opened the door.

From the window.

We had a similar view in 1981 at CR - it was considered a parking lot view back then. No castle, but we did not care. I just don't get why people pay so much to see a parking lot.

There is a parking lot there? I didn't even notice! My son's face--seeing that everyday on his 10th birthday trip--was worth quadruple what we paid and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

This is a view from our third floor room in Tahiti at the Polynesian. I hope this view doesn't disappear with the DVC huts coming.

Beautiful..word is Tahiti will be DVC ....I don't see how the view could be as good with Huts out there.
I am going to miss the original Polynesian....it has changed so much over the years...I hope DVC doesn't change it too much more.

Wonderful! Glad he had a special birthday trip!

My kids had the exact same reaction - we absolutely loved watching the monorail glide by...seeing Space Mountain was heaven on earth for my 7 yr old son...I think we were in our room for the fireworks just once, but it was fantastic. Glad you had a great trip...but still happy we paid a parking lot view rate.

Oh no doubt!! We own DVC at BLT, and until it is paid for, we still pay an arm and a leg for the "parking lot view!" haha!! We leave again in 8 days but will stay at OKW because we waited too late to get BLT. When we can get two trips in per year, I feel like we are getting more for our money. Once we pay it off, we can go for "free!"

Wilderness Lodge, Courtyard View, Room 4151




I actually cried a little bit with joy when I saw that view. We were even able to see the highest Wishes fireworks over the top of the other wing!

Port Orleans French Quarter, Riverview Room, 7346


Unfortunately, I only stayed here for one night and didn't even check in until 9pm, so I was able to enjoy the view for about 20 minutes the next morning.

These are easily the two best room views I've ever had, and both are rooms recommended in the "Good Rooms" sections in the Unofficial Guide!
