I agree!! NO SPLITS for us either!! Been there DONE THAT! I need to unpack and put those suitcases AWAY.....ONCE! Lol!!

I KNOW you will LOVE the space in a 1 bedroom!! We have stayed in all size Villas (except the Studio) at the BLT, and have had many many stays in the CR Tower rooms as well! Most recently this past April we stayed in a CR TPV room. As much as we LOVED the quick access to the 4th floor via the elevator, etc., we really missed having TWO bathrooms, at least TWICE the space, a washer/dryer, and a KITCHEN!!
If it were only Hubby and myself I would definitely consider the CR again (as the BLT Studio is just too small - for us anyway), otherwise it's the BLT for us going forward!
Also, as much as my son loved looking down onto the Monorail from the upper floors, he is MUCH HAPPIER watching from the comfort of the BLT patio chairs!
Have a GREAT stay!!

PS: SOOOOO excited!! Just booked our flights tonight on JetBlue out of PVD! Under $200 PP!! Can't complain at that!!

Renting points at BLT isn't so bad, as long as you book early.

If you get an odd numbered room, you can actually lay in your bed and see the castle. Nothing like bringing the sights of MK right into your room.
It's posts like this that make me excited for our first CR stay in December .

I think the brokers have a hard time getting BLT points to book at eleven months out.

Yay!

I just booked CR garden wing/standard view room with the 40% military discount for next May! I did think twice about booking a TPV room in the tower, but I am trying to stay on a budget and the tower is still more than I wanted to pay even with the discount.
I'm really happy we were able to book the least expensive rate combined with the discount! We're doing the deluxe dining. You can see what my priorities are! I'd rather eat well than have a pretty view!

Ok weird question. We are staying at BLT in January through Disney (not DVC or renting points). Are we allowed access to the top of the world lounge?

I do not believe so. I think it is only for DVC members.

Thank you! That is what I thought, just thought I would ask the Dis (they know all!)
