Good luck princessap!!! Mine was for a studio so smaller number of points which may be why it came through sooner. I'm sure you will get it though!

Subscribing! I booked a studio at BLT for 9/2/14-9/6/14 through David's also! They got it just a couple of days after the 11 month mark!

Probably a silly question but....where can you see the Electrical water pageant?

If you have room on the Bay Lake side, from your balcony. Otherwise you can go down to the beach area to watch it.

I am surprised you have been successful with davids. I have a friend waiting to hear back about booking a one bedroom for next september and no luck.

Actually, they were the second company I contacted. The first didn't have points for a studio at BLT and suggested I wait until 7 months out, so I contacted David's right away and they had it within a couple of days. Maybe the studio is easier than a one bedroom? Good luck to your friend!

I'm contemplating changing to the contemporary from the poly due to the construction. Can someone tell me what are the pluses/minuses of BLT v. the garden rooms? What category of rooms is in the part where the monorail goes through? I see there is a big upcharge for BLT.

I have not been to WDW in 25 years (when I was a kid) and will be bringing a 5 yo and infant. We will come back to the room in the afternoon for naps/pool time.

One plus for you, you can walk to and from the MK and BLT (or CR). You can get the monorail at the CR to go to the TTC and catch another to Epcot. And the pool at BLT is fun for kids.

Just avoid a studio at BLT. They are very small. More suitable for a couple or a couple with one small child. Go with the one bedroom villa.

You'll need to head over to the CR (just take the overhead bridge) to dine if you don't use your own kitchen.

There are 3 buildings at The Contemporary (CR). The main tower (that the monorail goes through), the garden wing, which is a 3 story building adjacent to the CR, and BLT which is the vacation club villas, BLT and CR are "connected" via a sky bridge between the two.

Hope that helps a bit.

Hi everyone, just changed my reservation from Poly to CR CL TPV. We've never stayed at CR, but decided to switch rather then spend the next 9 months obsessing whether or not the Volcano Pool would be open.

Thanks to everyone here for posting their great CR and CR CL experiences. I was concerned it may not be as nice as the Poly, but no longer. After reading through this thread the last few days, I'm psyched and ready to go. If only I didn't have such a long wait, but it'll be fun planning and reading along with you all.

We're staying Aug 17-24. Please keep sharing about your trips!

It will come through! Did you go through David's (I thought you did?). You could also check out the rent/trade board. I've seen some on there for BLT.
