So excited!!! Just booked a lake view studio at BLT for a girls only 4 day/3 night stay in June. I have never stayed at Contemporary or BLT and my friend has NEVER been to Disney, so I would appreciate any information you can give me. I'm renting DVC points and the DVC member told me she requested a high floor for my stay.

Thanks and looking forward to all the good advice from you!!!

We've always gone in August or July - will it be warm enough to spend a day at the pool and swim when we go this spring break?

I mean, I know anything can happend, freak cold snap or rain storm... but in general... is it swiming weather?

One more question - much more CR oriented.... can you get chanel 98 (or is it 93) with the classic cartoons at the hotel. It seems like each resort is different.... some get it, some don't .... anyone know for sure about the CR?

The last time I stayed at the Contemporary in August 2010 they still had the classic cartoon channel and it's 96.

Not that I plan on doing it but tomorrow marks 180 days out and I can make dining res.
Now is it 180 from the start of your stay or 180 from the actual day you want to make the res?

Unless your spring break is in January (or maybe parts of Feb), definitely yes!

If you're staying at the CR, with your reservation #, you can reserve 180 days from the start of your trip for up to 10 days out. Anyone not staying on site doesn't get that 10 day benefit.

Ps -- you should start reserving the stuff you really want soon!

Deluxe Garden Wing room video reminder

Many people ask about the Deluxe Garden Wing room, so I thought I'd post the link to the AllEars video of the DGW room:

http://allears.net/acc/resortvids.htm

It's underneath the "Standard" room video.

You're welcome. I was taking a peek at some of the AllEars videos and reading some of the resort reviews (for the 20 millionth time). I'm probably going to cancel RPC - not keen on a DVC construction view from our Deluxe room. I'm reluctant to just extend BWI since we haven't stayed there before and there's the possibility we might not want a long stay there. Was thinking about Atrium BLV instead of RPC even though I wasn't very impressed back in 8/10, maybe they've improved? I don't know what to do
