According to work2play's maps in Post #1, they have room numbers that end with xx05, xx17, xx29, or xx41. Of these, I assume that villas numbered xx05 would have the best view of seeing Epcot since they face south and are at the end of the crescent.

Good luck on getting what you want for your stay!

Actually, I believe that the dedicated XX44 rooms would have the best views of EPCOT. It is the only option for a dedicated 2 BR on the southern portion of the outside cresent. Here is the picture that I took from the TOWL looking south toward EPCOT (I was on the MK facing observation deck):

Ok, so Work2Play, if I were to get a 2 BR dedicated on the outside (even numbered room), on the North Cresant.. what do you believe would be my view? I am assuming the lake of coarse, do you think I would be able to see any of MK or would I be too far off with the curve?

Thanks!!!

That is a good question! I had 7306 and you would be talking about the XX02 rooms, two down from where I was. I am guessing that if you stood out on the balcony, you might be able to see Space Mountain but maybe not the castle. There are some tall trees on that side of the building, so you would want a high floor to make sure you had an unobstructed view over the trees. I believe either room would have a great view. One of the real features of those end locations is that no one is looking into your room and you can leave the blackout curtains open. If you get an odd number room, you might find that you need to close the curtains more often.

You are correct that xx44 villas would probably have the best views of Epcot. However, in my prior post, I was referring only to the Lake View villas that are on the inside of BLT's crescent. Of these, the xx05 villas probably offer the best southernly views.

Yes we did take pictures.. I'll post some ASAP they are on my hubby's SLR and I don't know if he uploaded them yet or not. Once he does i'll get some up.

He took a bunch while fireworks were going off as well but I've not even seen those yet!

THANKS AGAIN, WORK2PLAY!! Our wonderful room, which we got using your chart, was 8210. 1 BR unit, twelfth floor, classified as a Bay Lake View. We could see the castle, space mountain, lake shore, and lake. Everything about this trip was terrific. All the CMs were great, and the facility is amazing. Now I have to go do laundry.

YoureverydayAdam has a trip report going http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...1&postcount=16. The photos show he is in room 7204, a 1 bedroom and he states it is a lake view room. You can see the lake through the trees.

Its amazing how much information is shared between DVC members! We are new, our first trip will be October 12th. I was also planning on having Work2's chart with me, its fantastic! in fact, i was thinking a room in the '10's would be perfect (8110, 8210, etc).
So...in YOUR room, when you were on the balcony, was there something below near the parking lot (I thought i read that there was either a dumpster..an A/C unit..something like that)?
Thanks!

Just booked for Lakeview in Feb 2010

I love this thread, I was able to book a lakeview one bedroom today for President's day weekend. We usually only do a studio, but there were none available, so I splurged!
Thanks for all the great info, now to plan on which area to request. Have people found that most requests are granted?
