Question about towels at BLT

Certainly don't want to derail the already derailed tipping mousekeeping thread So, I have started a new one for my question. We will be 5 + baby in a 1-bedroom at BLT. How many towels will we have? I read on the tipping thread that you cannot request more towels if you are staying on points. I've never stayed somewhere I couldn't request more towels so I just need to know if I have to bring a few extra towels. Also, what about bedding and pillows?

You can always order a towel packet for $6 that gives you an extra set of towels. You should have at least 4 towels and 2 hand towels and washcloths in each of the 2 bathrooms. You can buy more towels to use or you can wash the towels you have- you just can't get them for free.

Ok, that sounds fine. Thanks for the response!

Did you book your stay through Disney Reservation Center or through Disney Vacation Club? That makes a difference.

I would throw a couple of bath towels into your luggage, you can then wash them with the others. Any color but white.

We rented DVC points through a broker so I don't know how it was booked.

It sounds like there are 4 bath towels in each bathroom so we'd have 8 total. That will be fine for our family of 6. We are packing light so I plan to be washing a lot anyway.

Thanks for the list of what is provided. It looks like there is basically coffee, sugar/creamer, laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, etc. for ONE day or ONE use. Is that correct? I was planning to take most of those items anyways and don't mind, but I just want to be prepared. Also, my dh's parents are staying in their own 1BR so I need to let them know what to expect.

If you are renting through a broker, you are staying on points and the DVC rules that Deb & Bill quoted above will apply.

When we stayed at BLT in an accessible studio in July we had six bath towels and 6 face cloths. I think they must have run out of hand towels as we only had two. I rang housekeeping to ask for more and they fetched me 4 more bath towels (no charge).

Sorry to ask a silly question. Re the schedule for the cleaning service that was posted ( thanks for that! ) is day one check in day or the day after? I can never work it out!

Thank you! Does anyone know if you can upgrade a trash and towel to a full clean if you pay the extra 15 dollars?

No, and if you could you would pay an extra $20 for full clean. $45 for full clean in a one bedroom, $20 for Trash and Towel in the one bedroom.

But you would have to schedule the full clean and pay $45 for it.
