Although I would be requesting Tokelau this time around if we went with Poly instead of CR...perhaps about the same instance then as GW?
Would love to know that too as we stayed Tokelau last time too and would love to know distance between Gw and monorail.

I think Tokelau is closer to GCH than a CR GW room at the very end of the wing overlooking BL. We have stayed in both several times, Poly and Tokelau being our favorite. Also we are walkers and do not mind a walk from the room at all - so this is not coming from someone who thinks almost every room is too far. . My experience is that Tokelau to TTC would be about the same walk time as CR GW (end rooms) to the MK.

It really depends on your room location in the CR GW - if you request one close to the Tower then it will be about the same to the monorail as one of the closer Long Houses at the Poly - including wait times for the elevator. If at the far end of the GW, then that will take longer than almost any Poly Longhouse to GCH. . We've done both several times.

So if we book a BLV room in the main tower, what other requests would you make?

I'm wondering if someone can help me, please? We were thinking of booking BLT last summer and I remember seeing a layout of the building and the view/type of villa and where each is located on each floor. I don't see it on the first page of this thread (unless I missed it.) Could someone please direct me to where I could find it? We're trying to plan for summer 2014

The BLT room number/view thread is hyperlinked at the beginning of the BLT portion of the thread in post #12. This should help you plan:

No problem and that's what we're here for. Hope you get to book BLT soon. Speaking of which, I'm finding it hard to resist checking again for availability for August

I'm sure this answer is here, bit I'm not finding it. We have a Tower room, BLV booked, I couldn't book a king size bed. Can I request one or are the only king beds CL? TIA!

I bet!! We were just in WDW from June 8-13 and I am searching rates every day because I want to try to go back for a few days before I have to go back to school at the end of the month (I'm a teacher.)

Yes, you can request a King non-CL room and no problem asking even if it were somewhere around here, (but it's not).

One more thing! I think we've finally decided on BLT for next July (trying to hit value season.)

If we're non-DVC, when can we book? I just called and the CM on the phone was so super sweet, but he was clueless as to the rule I know this year value season starts on July 14, but a few years ago it was as late as the 18th (I think?) It always starts on a Sunday, right? I'm just trying to figure out if it will be the 13 or the 20. I teach and we go back to school pretty early and I don't want to push it too close!
