KOOK - in your best magic erasing marker can you change me once again Changing the Jan 4-6 from CR to BLT The wonderful CM on the phone did not want me to cancel so even though the Visa, soon to be GP disc was not valid for my dates, she managed to find me a PIN but it was only good for CR CL (Atrium and Tower!) or BLT, so we are now booked that weekend in a 1BR at BLT!!!

Your DD wouldn't like that I requested the Bay Lake View. I'm sure someone will be very pleased to get the TPV Queen. June seems farrrrrr away, but I will definitely post a Tower Club TR in July.

Well, DH was "un-furloughed" by the DoD so I feel like I can think about our Christmas trip again - at least until the debt ceiling crisis hits on 10/17

At BLT now. Love the resort! The monorail situation has been very inconvenient. We have an ADR for Kona at 2:30 10/10 before mnsshp and it's gonna be a pain getting there. But where there's a will there's a way.

That is great that your DH was "un-furloughed". I feel for everyone that is going through that mess right now .

Glad you're having a good time and loving BLT. I'm sorry about the monorail situation......but you have a very good attitude and I agree that where there's a will there's a way . Hope you continue to have a magical trip.

Tower Club Standard King Room?

Hi, everybody. We received a pin code yesterday, which did not apply to our booked TPV room. It turned out that the code did apply to Club Level--we were offered a standard king room on the "Tower Club" floor (the 14th floor?), for less than the price of our original booking, so we reserved that. However, we were not able to book a guaranteed TPV room--we were told that whether we got a MK view or a BL view "depended on availability at check-in," and that if we wound up with a BL view, we could watch Wishes from the lounge. Does the inability to guarantee a specific view on this reservation sound odd to anybody? It seemed kind of strange to me. Maybe because I booked the room with a code? Any input would be appreciated.

BLT is great and I'm glad you're having a fun time, despite the monorail closures

Well, being back to work doesn't mean you get paid. I've put Christmas on the back burner of my vacation thoughts again.

Congratulations on booking the Tower Club and to the DIS and the CR/BLT thread!

I have more Tower Club information, a room/suite location map and photo links on the first page HERE.

There are only two King rooms on the 14th floor that are not part of a suite. Your booking rate has nothing to do with not being able to book a view. Both of the King Tower Club rooms are TPV/MKV rooms and are coded with "CW." If you booked a King Standard CL room, you will have a TPV. However, if you book a Queen Tower Club room, there is one TPV and one BLV, so you can request your preference. We requested a BLV, which is less popular. Since there are only 5 non-suite rooms on the 14th floor, and one is a HA room, I suspect it just isn't worth creating a separate booking code for only two Queen rooms.

Stop by anytime. Are you considering stopping by CR or BLT?
