Refurbed rooms at BLT already? Really? Why and what was refurbed? We're staying here for the first time next month so I'm kind of curious.

The studios are being refurbed due to some complaints about the bathroom sink being in the kitchenette area in the original design. Now the sink is being moved into the bathroom (just a wall change). Also, some issues with the bathroom door locks are being addressed for all room sizes(I think). The refurbs are an ongoing process and unless disney finished recently, you could be put in either set up for the studio. No other room size is affected (except the 2 bedroom lock-off of course) by the bathroom sink issue.

Oh okay. So they moved the orginial sink that was by the kitchenette into the bathroom or just added another sink in the bathroom?

Never mind. Just saw the new photos and answered my question! Much better layout now if you ask me!

ok, i can't actually figure out how to post pictures for some reason, but i am looking for some advice:: This summer my family and i stayed at bay lake. we were in room 7218 which was THE MOST AMAZING VIEW EVER (right by magic kingdom and the monorail) !! we usually stay in a different resort every year for 2 days before we go to OKW for the week. This year we wanted to stay at Kidani, but my mother is having a super hard time deciding where to stay, and we have to make reservations soon. I told her we may not get the same room because the same things don't happen twice. I honestly don't care where we stay, but what are everyone else's opinions ??? HELP ME OUT, PLEASE

I think the view from the inside of the resort hub is beautiful. You get to overlook the pool, bay lake and hear all the sounds of bay lake love it.

We're staying in a LV Studio in Jan for our first DVC vacation. Can anyone suggest what I might ask for in terms of a room request? Are higher floors more desirable? If we face the pool, can we see the Electrical Water Pageant? From what I've gathered, our best shot of a semi MK view would be an even number on the north side?

Thanks!

We have stayed Lake view the last few times and we have made requests because we wanted certain things. Both times we got exactly what we wanted and the same exact room.

Here was our request:
Floor 5 (we wanted easy access to the bridge since I am not a fan of elevators) North side of the building High Even numbers. We ended up with 7508 which actually got us a view of the castle as well. We watch fireworks every night and was so happy. My parents were also in a LV studio and they had 7509 and their view was of the pool and lake. They loved their view because they like the action of that side and we like the quiet MK view in our room so we were both very happy both times.
If you did not care what floor you were on you could just say North Side high even numbers and even though it is Lake view you can still get a peek at MK.
