Oh How cool. Happy dance for you.

I was never a CR fan until we stayed at BLT in 2010. I just fell in love with the resort. We are excited as well. Maybe we will see ya there.

BLT questions? Which floor is the walkway and 1 BR questions

Great thread! Im on another board similar to this, and know how to search...but honestly I've come up with a couple of different answers can anyone confirm/answer for me...

What floor is the walkway from the BLT to the Contemporary?
The most consistent answer seems to be 5 th floor in BLT to 4 th floor on Contemporary tower. But I've seen 2 nd 3rd floor and read about people staying in 7xxx and say it's on the floor below ( but I dont think 7xxx is 7 th floor- I'm too much of a newbie to understand how the floor numbering works!)I'm confused

Are there 2 full baths in the 1 BR units? Again, floor plans and posts seem to differ in this. We've stayed in the BWV 1 BR and I dont remember 2 baths, but that was a while ago now!

Opinions about the sleeper chair as a viable bed for a petite teen (64 inches)?

Last question (fer now!) We are only staying a few nights, so unlikely to be able to take full advantage of a high floor MK view for fireworks ( we will likely be in the parks with teens till close when "bombs go bursting in air", so we are considering requesting a room on the same floor as the walkway ( once I now which!) Lake View, and we realize that may not be a great view, but thinking of convenience of not needing the elevator. Any thoughts? Anyone had luck with requests? We are not DVC members and we will be going during the busy Presidents BD week, so I'm hopeful, but wondering how good our chances with a request will be?
TIA to all the CR experts out there!

Walkway is on the 5th floor of BLT and goes into the 4th floor of Contemp. I can't remember how the room #'s go in relation to the floor #'s.

Yes, 2 full baths in 1 bedrooms.

I think sleeper would be fine for 16 year old. My 10 year old slept in it just fine (I know a big diff. in age -although my ds in 55 inches tall,) but I remember reading a lot of reports of adults being fine sleeping in the sleeper.

I think requesting a 5th floor room would be fine, especially good for the convenience. We were going to do this last year, if we didn't get our request of a high floor on the North and outer part of building met. We ended up getting those requests met and had the best Lakeview room ever...-really it was a view of MK. If we can't get a room like that this year, we'll be requesting a room on the 5th floor, for the convenience.

BLT room numbers start at 71XX for the first floor, 72XX for 2nd, 81XX for the 11th, etc.

Ps-- you don't remember 2 full baths in BWV because it didn't have it! I think only BLT and AKV 1 BRs have the two full baths.

Yes, only BLT and Kidani have two bathrooms in their one bedrooms; Jambo doesn't.

Thanks for all this info!! Im thinking my 18 is tiny and will be happier on a chair than in a bed with her nearly 6 foot tall sister It's only a couple of nights, so I think it will be fine.

AHH! That explains my seemingly faulty memory! And the sleeper chair is new too! Well, that makes them more useful to us...When our kids were bitty, we would bring the grandparents and did the 2 BR, but they were in the pack and play then (kids, not the GP), since then the one bedroom didnt feel like it would be worth it (other than kitchen and laundry) so the last few times weve been weve just stayed in a studio or Wilderness trailer. (last trip we stayed at the other park "which cannot be named", for teens and grandma to meet the boy wizard..btw) so since then AK and CR have added new villas and they seem to have a few more benies!! Sounds good to me! Thanks for the help!

The cups and pods are NOT interchangeable. The pods are flat filters with ground coffee in them and not plastic cups:



I took that last month at WL, but they are the same as the CR.

Same concept but it is a different system (like VHS and Beta). Pods are harder to find, at least around here but similar.
