Question about beds at blt. Poster above stated that 2 children need to share but I thought 2 queens in one room and a king and sofa bed and sleeper chair. The adults will be sleeping together and then kids will have own beds. If I'm wrong about beds thet might decide things.

You are correct on what sleeping arrangements are available but what people were referring to is the fact that THV has a 3rd bedroom whereas at BLT if each child has their own sleeping "place" then there will be two open sleepers in the living area. It's just not the ideal arrangement in many people's mind b/c it limits the useage of the living area to times when the kids are not sleeping.

We will have 4 adults and 3 kids. We are looking at either THV(SSR owners) or 2BR theme park view BLT Dec 2-8, 2012.

THV give us an extra BR but BLT give us and extra Bathroom.
BLT has 3BR units as well, since points are not an issue.

I would make a reservation at SSR at 11 months and then try to change at 7 months to BLT. I would also go for a LV over the MK view as Spiceycat said.

I have stayed at both and would pick THV hands down over BLT. The only thing that would even make me consider picking BLT over THV is the location thing, otherwise THV is a much better place to stay, IMHO.

Yup, that was me. My preference was that if two kids were ok sharing a bed, i would do BLT. Not that they have to. The sleeper chair, in my opinion, is only good for smaller children. I laid on it and hung off considerably (though I am 6'1"). Otherwise you have multiple people in the living room wanting to go to bed at different times and lost use of the living space at night if someone wants to stay up.

BLT offers more space in the living area, great views, great location and convenience. THV offers a 3br option for 2br prices, isolated quiet and a unique experience.

One thing to think about, will the kids be going off on their own? If so, I'd really recommend BLT. While you said youd have a car, they won't. Getting around from Treehouse Villas would be considerably less convenient. Not only can you walk to MK and monorail to Epcot from BLT, you can walk to the MK bus depot and catch a bus anywhere. And, that walk is no worse than being on the far sidemof the BWV and going to the bus stop.

We where looking at that too but we would have to do a lake view. But, not sure if that is how many points a want to burn. I was thinking a little less then that.

That was my thought also. Now that the kids are older we might get some Adult time and let the kids have some freedom and BLT would be great for that. THV not as easy to get to places on the bus. Can be done but a lot longer. I'm more leaving to BLT.

Form reading it looks like MK views are hard to come by? Are lakeviews just as good. Does anyone have other suggestions.

I wonder if I couldn't get a 2BR theme park that I wonder if I could get 2 1BR either lakeview or theme park. Will I be disappointed if I get a lakeview. I'm really looking forward to watching fireworks from our room. Is there a place at BLT besides the top of the world bar to watch fireworks that has a good view?

The area outside the lounge is great, as are the areas near the north side elevators on the upper floors for watching the fireworks. I would imagine the walkway from the contemporary is also good. We had a Lv 1BR on the 8th floor north side and watched the fireworks from the balcony and they would have also been visible from the living room if we had had the drapes open.

I don't think you could have picked two more different resorts to choose from!

Me ... yeesh... tough one. I Love the outdoors and am dying to stay in a treehouse, but I'm going to say I'd go with BLT in December. Why? BLT has more holiday decor than the THV to greet us all around. In December I want trees, lights and wreaths around us. It's also a very easy boat ride over to VWL and Ft W. or a monorail trip to the Grand Floridian where there are tons of decorations (and a giant gingerbread house) to take in

Though, now that I've thought about it, you should really stay at THV. We're also going in December 2012 and I don't want any competition for a 2BR!!

I kid, I kid.
