I have reserved a 1 bedroom theme park view for Oct 27th-Nov 3rd. Does anyone now if I will be eligible for the free dining or room discount if it is released tomorrow? I can't figure it out.

You honestly won't know until tomorrow (if it is released then) and make the call. It all depends on availability. There does not seem to be a hard and fast rule as to which resorts and room types are included.

Keep trying! Good luck!
did you get std view or garden view? I can get garden view but not standard for our dates.

I am currently staying a CR an can say it has to be one of the worse experiences I have ever had!! First day my room wasn't claimed the second day they came at 4:00 while my kids were napping and told us if we turned her away she can't come back. At check in they never sent a text when room was ready so I should've known we were on for a horrible time! This place is the most non-accommodating places I have ever stayed. I will never come back here!! Thank you for letting me vent!

I am so sorry you are having such a bad experience. I would definitely call or go to the front desk and let them know how upset you are. I would also call housekeeping and ask to be out on an early schedule as you have children that nap in the afternoon.

As for the text to let you know when your room is ready, that seems to be the norm at all the resorts. I don't get it more than I get it.

Sorry again, I hope your experience turns around quickly!!!!

First time stay at BLT

We finally were able to book a BLT standard view room for the first time based on availability thru DVC. I never realized how much of a high demand this resort had! What can we expect for a Standard View...is that considered pool view? Any pics would be so appreciated! TIA!

Thank you 😊
I saw the Log-orail on the first page.

Check out this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082. Work2play has diagrams of BLT showing which units are studio, 1BR, and 2BR, and which units are standard, lake, and theme park view. Below those diagrams is a list of links to posts with pics taken from various units. We love BLT. Hope you do, too!

Alright!
I'm just getting used to reading all of the pages and I finally read the entire first page and saw what the club level consists of.

I'll try to read all of the pages. I'm sure my questions will be answered.

I haven't been on the DISboards for a while. I have to get used to all of .the abbreviations again.

It's very interesting and informative

You're welcome . I agree.....it is fun seeing when everyone is going and if they're staying at the CR or BLT .

Staying CL gives you a few extra perks such as a lounge with food offerings throughout the day and IPO (Itinerary Planning Office) that can book ADRs and dinner shows for you and answer any questions you might have prior to or during your stay. The food offerings are nice as breakfast consists of continental breakfast type foods (muffins, cereals, etc) and is great for a quick breakfast before hitting the parks; afternoon offerings could be chips/dip, cookies, etc.; evening offerings will be 1 or 2 hot appetizers along with maybe cheese & crackers and a few other items; and the evening ends with desserts and cordials. CL rooms do cost quite a bit more than standard rooms, but it really is a nice perk if it's in your budget. We don't do CL every trip, but when we do, we like having the lounge for someplace else to go other than in our room or other places around the resort. HTH .

Yes it does but the safe froze and I needed to have someone come up to open it. We stayed at POR on October and believe it or not we received better service there! I guess you don't always get what you pay for!
