Yup, you would want a 12 cup basket filter if you were buying them.

Welcome fellow threaders. We just made our ressies for xmas (19-25) for our first time in a deluxe! welcome us to the big time.

That being said, normally we stay at POR/POFQ and get our breakfast from the general store there. Is there a similar store in the contemporary? I have looked at countless maps and have not been able to find one.

Also, we are staying out in the garden wing and are looking for a decent place to watch the fireworks before bed. I read you can go out into the parking lot and cacth the show. Any other ideas for a 9 year old?

Thanks in advance

Vat

You can buy groceries at Fantasia Market on the 4th floor of the tower just next to the arcade. You can watch fireworks from the 4th floor balcony or you can see them from the parking lot. We would go to the movies under the stars and watch the fireworks by turning around in our chairs. They are held on the walkway between the CR and BLT.

The fourth floor observation deck is a great place, though it can get a bit packed. Really good view, though, and its cool having the monorail pass so close overhead as well. Also the 9 year old might like the cupcakes from the Contempo cafe. Very sweet. This 40 year old loved them!

We're checking in to BLT one week from today! It's our first time ever staying on property and our first trip in over 15 years!

We booked a cash reservation and I just want to confirm that we will have daily housekeeping, especially shampoo and conditioner. I don't want to bring it for 6 of us if I don't have to!!!

TIA!
Sarah

Yes, you will get daily service. Also, if you ever need more of anything, just call mousekeeping.

Two quick questions...

If you are not a dvc member but you rent points from a member, can you use Top of the World? I know you can't if you are a cash reservation but the language on using it if you are a guest of a dvc member is unclear.

Also, how long is that walkway to MK really? The million times I've passed it I never really noticed but it honestly looks like quite a hike...

THanks!!

Only DVC members have access to Top of the World Lounge. When we were there last week, they asked to see my blue DVC member card and my room key.

Since you're renting, you won't have a member card, so you won't be granted access to the lounge.

It takes our family about 10 minutes to walk over. Going to MK it is quicker to walk than take the monorail because of the loop but heading back to BLT from MK it might be a tie depending on how long you have to wait for the monorail to arrive at the MK station.

As for the walk, 10 minutes at a leisurely pace. If you stayed at one of the other resorts, think of it as walking to the bus stop, and then walking from the bus back to the room in your resort. Except, you didn't stand in line for a bus.
