Staying at blt

I just booked a 7 day 6 night stay at BLT for this July. It will be my DDSIL and 4 month old granddaughter. I can't wait to bring her to WDW for the first time. This is why I chose to stay at BLT so we can go back and rest in the hot afternoons and then return for the evening. Also, we can go up to TOTW and view the fireworks if we don't want to go to any other parks. I think this will be a very restful vacation with my new granddaughter Princess Lily.

We stayed at BLT 11/27-12/4 with a four month old for the very same reasons. Loved being on the monorail but loved cabs even more. I think next time we can stay anywhere and just budget for cabs. We loved being dropped off at the front of all the Parks instead of standing in line at the monorail and being crammed in like sardines. I worried about the people coughing and the baby catching something, but she made it fine.

Congratulations on the new little princess in the family, too!

The OP doesn't mention if this is a paid stay or a stay using DVC points but I wanted to point out that the TOWL is available only to DVC members.

Sorry, it's DVC points. My home is Saratoga Springs but because of the little one I thought BLT would be the best this year. We are local so don't have to worry about park commando. We've been only once since it opened and that was a long weekend.

Our home is BWV and I love it there, but BLT is the ultimate! We are staying there again in a few weeks and I cannot wait!!!

You got at least a one bedroom, right? A studio will be very small for three adults and one child.

We were just in a one bedroom at BLT in October and thought it was nice. A bit noisy during the day inside the C. But the room was comfortable. My favorite part? The shower. I want one just like that at home.

I was just thinking about that shower the other day, lol! I looked forward to it every night of our stay.
