Can anyone tell me if the new refurbished rooms have the couch that converts into a bed? The rooms look beautiful, but I just hope they still have that little couch.

You need a BLT KTTW to open the door to the laundry room. It's locked.

Can anyone tell me how far of a walk it is from Atrium CL to laundry facilities? It's in the GW, correct? Family of 5 staying nine days-I'm going to have to do laundry at some point
Welcome to the DIS and the CR/BLT thread! I'll add you to the Log-orail and happy planning!

No worries - the daybed is still there. It was a soft goods rehab so only fabric coverings/carpeting/drapes/mattresses...were changed.

Hi I think my Logorail request got lost in the shuffle of all the excited posters We'll be staying at BLT from July 17-24, 2014. SOOOOOO excited to be staying in a 2 bedroom, theme park view!!!



On that note, I've been looking through this thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082 to check out the different views/locations. I was looking at some of the pictures from the rooms that would be dedicated 2 bedroom and theme park view. (We've requested a dedicated due to the bed layout.) My question is....is there really a difference between a room ending in 16 and a room ending in 30? I know the building curves, so I'm wondering if the rooms ending in 30 would require you to lean out over the balcony railing to really have a good "view" of the MK? It's sometimes hard to tell based on someone's pictures because you don't know if they zoomed or if there were some body gymnastics that took place to get the shot Thanks!!!

need to decide: CL or extras?

Will be staying in CR Nov 9 - 12. We are currently staying in the tower TPV. Wondering if we should move to CL TPV oR if we should stay with tower and book cabanas for 2 days and MVMCP. Price is about the same either way. Which would you do? We are 4 adults and 2 children, aged 3 yr and 10 months (3 generation).

Thanks for any insight/advice.

You're officially logged now. I'll leave your BLT question to someone else or you might want to post it to the BLT Room View thread.

Welcome! I'll add you to the Log-orail. I would definitely choose CL over cabanas! There are many more amenities and perks associated with CL, beginning even before your vacation starts. You might also consider CL with a BLV (our favorite). You would have a TPV every time you were in the CL lounge and you could watch Wishes from there every evening. You'd also see the EWP each night from your balcony.

Definitely go with Club Level. The cabanas are nice but you could have weather related problems. One time when we rented a cabana it was beautiful weather at 10 a.m. however by noon it was pouring for the rest of the day. We still had to pay the full price.

MVMCP is also nice ... however our experience in recent years is that they oversell and MK is PACKED. With small children 3 and under that might not be very enjoyable.

We have stayed at BLT 3 times. I find the pictures posted to be accurate compared to our actual views.

We have been lake view but I like to look out windows by elevator. One is adjacent to '30 bank and other near the'16 bank.

Best way to describe it is with 16 end you have a more straight on shot for the castle. I however prefer the 30 end. It has a view of CR, POLY, GF with MK on the right. Seven seas lagoon is our favorite so I would prefer that end.

Also go to google or bing maps. You can see what your view will be pretty good from there too. It helps to see the angle of the building and what will be straight ahead.

We loved the 2br. We finally got one last November

Thank you so much! We are finally getting to stay here and my mom is dreaming of being able to see the fireworks from our room. She is SO excited, so I wanted to be sure we had a nice, direct view. She's always made my dreams come true, now it's my turn to start making her's come true

I'll add you to the Log-orail and congratulations! Your DS is going to love hearing the train whistle. You might want to also take him by boat over to WL. The Carolwood Pacific Room is in the VWL lobby area and there are train models and photos for him to look at.

WDWKOOK, thank you so much! I definitely want to take him to the WL/VWL! My husband and I LOVE that resort! We've never stayed there, but it's on the list! Since we have 5 in the room for this trip we decided on CR. Also, never stayed at CR! I'm so excited b/c I know the next 4 months are going to fly by!~

This thread is great! I'm gradually reading through it now.

So when check in you want row 16,22,24,30 in that order to make mama

See what they give you first then ask nicely to move if available. I was in a lake view row 10 and had a good view of castle even though around the corner.

Pictures just can't describe it. The room is HUGE when you walk in. The views are gorgeous. You really feel like staying in an extension of MK

The talking elevators are a fun touch too. Also CR so close we used that pool and hot tub too. Loved taking boat over to WL for an afternoon break as well.

I miss BLT! We are trying VGF over Christmas break this time.
