OMG you are correct. I was just looking at our BLT pictures from last year and there they were.

The NEW SUITES haven't been started? What?
that's why I was looking forward to booking one of them.
Of course, we've stayed in them and they are wonderful but they do need a rehab. Sigh. What to do, what to do.
This is interesting as we have a suite booked for 2 weeks from today. And our reservation was made last year, and no one ever contacted us about getting bumped, so... I will report when I check in! We have stayed in the suites before so I will let everyone know.

I believe that the view, MK or BL, is not bookable, but I'm not certain if they've changed this. There is also a higher CM to guest ratio on the 14th floor. Hopefully, someone who has stayed on the Tower Club level can add to this for me!
On the 14th FL, the view is bookable - we have a 1BR suite TPV booked rather than the BL side.

If you had to be moved to another resort because of construction on the 14th floor I am sure someone at WDW would have contacted you a long time ago, so I don't think you have anything to be worried about.

I am just hoping the suites were not renovated. I never warmed up to the proposed Health and Wellness theme. I realize the Suites can be considered "dated" in their decor, but I feel that the decor fits with the contemporary theme of the resort itself. So I am kinda excited to hear that the H&W remodel may never have gotten off the ground, and hopefully never ever will.

I am also wondering what the holiday decorations may be? I have been ok with the nod to Mary Blair gingerbread tree on the 4th floor concourse area, in fact it's my cell phone wall paper from last year's trip. And I love the big wreath... I guess I can dream that WDW would be sporting more new decorations all over the resorts and parks.

I have been so busy with real life "stuff" and this is the first time I've had to just sit and visit the boards, and realize that I'm going back to Disney soon. And the Contemporary! It's been a whole year since we've stayed at CR, and I am ready to see the resort that has the highway in the sky go thru it.

Does anyone know if the pools close if it gets to a certain temp outside? If so, what the temp is? I read they are heated, but wondering if they still keep them open if it's 70 out? (can you tell I"m from the North - LOL)

We leave Saturday and can't wait. I officially changed our reservation to CR from BLT a few weeks back if folks recall. I was able to get FD. I called this week to confirm all of our details and on a random chance had them check for a RO discount- one was available! So we ended up saving some extra money, a very pleasant surprise!

Working like a crazy woman now so that I can actually enjoy our vacation and not work! Can't wait!!

Hmmm nice
Might have to check that out, my wife would like a massage Prob - it will be our 10th anniversary too

We land at the airport at 10am, does anyone think it would be a problem to be checked in and everything by 3 for the afternoon rental session?
Heck, if anyone has good ideas to kill a few hrs on checkout day that would be good too

The pools stay open no matter what the temperature is outside. In the past I have been to WDW when it's been very cold at times and there was still Lifeguards dressed in full jackets and winter hats to keep warm, although the funny thing is no guests were swimming.

The only time I have seen them close a pool is when it rains outside and there is a threat of lightning, so they can tell everyone to leave the pool area and get inside.

They do don't they. I am so glad that you mentioned the two by the regular pool as well. Well, we always do something special every time we go to WDW, whether it's La Nouba or a really nice dinner say at Fulton's. Something that we would have to pay extra for outside of our MWY package. So we figured this time on renting the cabana's for a couple of days instead.

Can anyone point me where to find the number of rooms at BLT that are studios with SV, LV, MKV, one bed with views, two beds with views, etc?

I've read through but not seen a definitive answer- are there keurig coffee machines in the contemporary rooms?
