Hi Everyone-
I am getting ready to call tomorrow for a room request, and need some help as this is my 1st time in a standard view, we normally do lakeview. SO, we will have a standard view 1bedroom, and I am looking to see both the fireworks at the magic kingdom, and the monorail as my 2 year old loves watching cars, trucks, trains ect... So, I know to ask for an even numbered room, but what else? Thanks for everyones adding to these thread! It is great!

We just checked in to BLT. We are in #8142, one floor below the work2play memorial room of 8242. Great views of the Contemporary and Bay Lake, and we can even see the monorail. We'll post some photos soon!!

If they are on a higher floor! I think DVC really needs to reclasify the third floor rooms. Room 7326 (I think that's the right number, has a totally blocked view on the balcony from the overhang awning.

We were in 7842, 3 floors below, and loved the view. We enjoyed being able to see Epcot fireworks, DHS, and even AK. At night, it was fun to watch/listen to the pirates and princess cruise come into the dock.

How does this compare to the MK view you had on your last BLT stay?

Have a great time! We'll see you next week.

Yes! You can see the finale, anything that is high in the air. It is pretty far away, you can definitely see it.

That is soo awesome! I am going to name that one the wdrl memorial room! Enjoy and let me know what you think of it!

I liked seeing the monorail enter and exit the Contemporary from the other end. You can see all the way to the ticket and transportation center along the monorail track.

7804/7806

Just stayed in 7804/7806 from 9/23-9/30. The pics from 7806 which are already posted are a great representation and I forgot to take pics from 7804. The view from 7804 was very similar to 7806 however, you needed to lean to have a view of the castle. I would give a warning that 7806 has a strong odor from smoke in the room. We complained and an extra cleaning was performed, however, it did very little to help. I would avoid this room for a least a few weeks.

When we checked in in July I asked for an even numbered room (MK side) above the 4th floor. Because we were staying only 1 night the CM at checkin was great and gave us a handicap accessible room which had an amazing view of MK. But we ended up going to Top of the World both nights. So if you dont wind up with a castle view - go up to the Top of the World lounge - its SO worth it!

Yes, you can bring the kids. I think they have 3-4 flatbread choices.

How do you guys get your requests honored? What is the magic word to use other than please? In all the years we have been going and all the trips we have made (approx 20 trips starting the year after WDW opened) and all the resorts we have stayed in (value to deluxe) we have NEVER had a request honored. Never. I will admit that we only started making requests the past few years (that would be the past 8 or 9 trips) due to my health) and we always make an "either or request" not a specific one. "May we please have building a or b, please? " rather than "May we have room A, please?" Still, nothing. So, how many of you on here will actually get the specific room you are requesting? I ask because we have asked that our BLT room for our Christmas reservation be on a certain floor or higher and I can't wait to see if we get this one! Especially since this request has nothing do do with a physical disabilty.

Requests are a tough one. I worry at BLT because doesn't everyone request a higher floor?

At the Poly, they gave us a ready-room and it was nowhere near where we wanted to be. We went back, nicely....trip of a lifetime/celebration....didn't want to face the parking lot..... The CM called someone, answered a few questions with yes, after looking us up and down and we were granted Tokelau, two rooms from the MK end of the building AND it was ready (Aug. 2007).

Now we stay DVC. And we tend to arrive REALLY late. I use online checkin with the hopes that they assign my room in the morning, while hopefully not busy/taking their time, read requests etc. And then should someone come up with a story, as above, they are not going to take the time to change my room from online checkin....too much work.

We got our request at BWV--high floor close to elevator. DH didn't think we were too close, but we were about halfway down the building and on the 5th floor (Jan. 2010).

At SSR, we requested the Springs upon reserving, two weeks ahead. I added College Park to my request two days before we left. We got College Park and not a good view at that. But it was in our request line so we wonder if we had taken potluck or I hadn't called about CP what we'd get (Aug. 2010).

Everyone will tell you to stay general, but I think you have the idea with building A or B. It feels like people are awfully specific with the BLT requests. I'm going to call eventually and add even numbered room to my high floor request. But I'm not going to specify north or south. This will be for next August.

Good luck.
