Bay Lake Towers announcement

From the main DVC board it seems like DVC are announcing the BLT resort at the Contemporary today - along with Treehouse villas at SSR.

Anyone this side of the Atlantic interested? (I know I am but not sure how I can persuade DH!)

I had the e-mail myself and have just watched the video - very exiting - straight off the monorail to MK, excellent.

I would LOVE to add on at BLT but I think I have a lot of persuading to do.

I am interested in these especially when dbf fell in love with Disney when we was there and so it will now be much easier to convince him.

We want to buy BLT- it is the only DVC DH is interested in. Unfortunatley timing is not good for us as we just don't have the spare cash to be able to do it at the moment.

Hopefully it won't sell out too quickly

Dad and I talked about it tonight and I have just e-mailed our guide to say we are interested in buying. It will mean us cutting down on our holidays though.

Question

Hi

I got the email with the link to BLTs looks interesting although that woman is annoying.

However I've not heard anything at all about the tree house villas at SSR.

Are those the ones that used to be connected to the Disney Institute?

We are SSR owners - does that mean we could book them 11 month out or are they different?

Thanks

Just had a look at the photos of he rooms and we don't like the look of them. Trying too hard to be "Contemporary" and also too dark - we're not fans of browns or yellows in the home.

I'm not interested in adding on at BLT and don't expect to want to try to book there for more than a couple of nights now and again, maybe. I can see the appeal of being able to walk to MK, but I think the boat ride from VWL is pretty simple, and I much prefer VWL to the Contemporary - just more to my personal taste.

The tree house villas, however, have always been on my wish list We won't be looking to add on, but might want to try to book one one day - although it seems likely they'll be tricky (if not impossible!) to get without the home-resort booking advantage.

I just love any extra flexibility with DVC!

The old Treehouse villas have been completely torn down and brand new ones are being built in their place. They are located approximately halfway between SSR and OKW, but are on the SSR side of the waterway.

They will be a separate booking category for SSR and SSR owners will have the 11-month priority booking window.

Thankyou

Looks Like I'll be able to book 11 month out then

Now when you say tree house villas I imagine you have to climb a ladder to get in - Will be very interested to see what they look like.

This will give you an idea of what the Treehouse Villas will look like.

They've done a great job with the Bay Lake Tower website. It provides a much better feel for what to expect than the video managed.
