Re: Pullout chairs at BLT

I'm 6'2" and 190 pounds and I would have no problem sleeping on one of the pullout chairs.

It would be snug - it's not the width of a twin mattress - but the length was fine and the mattress pretty comfortable.

Oh My! well, then she should fit at 100 pounds and 5 feet 4! And if she wants to switch off with her 5 foot 10 1/2 foot sister, I will use your post as proof it can work despite her protests

Just back from BLT

We just took our daughters ages 6 and 4 to WDW for their first trip. Stayed in 1 Bdrm lake view at BLT. Wanted MK view but all were booked. I requested high floor even room and north tower. We got all of our requests!! The CM at check in even said "we were able to get all of your requests!" Room 8410, 14th floor nearer the center tower on outward side of curve. From the balcony, we had a view of space mountain and the castle! We watched Wishes from the balcony on the nights that we got back early enough. The room was in great condition. Only issue which was very minor was cold water dripping from master rain shower head. Didn't care about it enough to call about it. Having kitchen with our perfectly delivered Garden Grocer groceries was great. Girls slept beautifully on pull outs and we loved having a real bedroom. I am sensitive to noise and heard absolutely nothing the whole trip. Loved walking to MK. Loved washer and dryer. Two full baths worked perfectly. Stroller delivery from Orlando Stroller rental and especially Kingdom Strollers (love you Matt!) went perfectly. Overall just a great stay!!

We stayed at the Poly on our last trip to the world and my kids LOVED the Electric Water Pagent. I was wondering if this comes by the Contemporary. We will be in the Garden Wing, and I'm not worried about seeing it from our room, but I was more wondering if there was a good place to go see it from.

It floats by around 10:05pm at the Contemporary. A good place would be the Marina area unless you have a Bay Lake view then you might be able to view it from your room

You can definitely see the EWP from any Bay Lake View Tower room and from the Garden Wing rooms that front Bay Lake and from the beach. You can also watch from the 4th floor windows that look out onto Bay Lake.

Thanks so much for posting your BLT one bedroom review, twodogs! Isn't it great when all your requests are met?! Sounds like you'd return to BLT? Did you book a BB or are your DVC?

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm excited!!

New to board & WDW

Hello, I have spent the last few days reading over all the great information you guys have provided on this thread (thanks!). I finally signed up as a user today to start asking more questions and get all the helpful information I can for our first family vacation!!!

We are planning our trip for Nov 2013 and are very interested in staying at the CR. Our children at the time of travel will be 4 and 3. Here are some question I have from the start:

1-What is the best way to book our trip (we are in the US) should we just go through Disney?

2-How can we save? Discounts? Open a Disney CC? American AA card?

3-Any tips for those who have traveled with young kids, please give me any advice you have.

4-Walk or take the monorail? I have heard walking really is not that bad.

5-Stroller for the kids or do parents find they just want to walk and end up dragging the stroller around? Where to rent a stroller?

6-Chef Mickey dinner? Are there set times for this? We are a early dinner type of family (example 5pm) how do we book a dinner to meet Mickey?

7-MK view room or Bay Lake view? If you have the Bay Lake view do you get to see the sun set? If you have a MK view what time does the firework show start?

8-Splash pads or zero entry pools at CR? Although our kids have been in swimming lessons neither know how to swim.

9-Flight cost, this seems to be so costly. We will be coming from Dallas Texas and all the prices we have checked seem so high (1300 for four RT)

Sorry for all the questions. I am just really excited about planning our first trip and I want it to be really special. I am not sure when we will be able to go again. Thanks so much!

We will absolutely stay there again. Perfect set up and location for the parks our kids are into right now. We just booked the room through the WDW website. We are not DVC members but can see why people might want to be after this trip!! They were great t BLT!! I will try to post room view pics later though may have already been posted by someone else.
