I booked 6 months out and it was fine, and much less expensive.

As long as you're good with lake view, you should be fine.

No, I wouldn't think so. I booked a MK view in May for a November visit.

Thanks for the reassurance, with people posting for my dates I was getting nervous that I should book now.
I would prefer std view but if I wait to book I can get lake view for the same price davids charges for std. So that was my thinking.

I am really set on staying here now and will be disappointef if we dont get it.

That's a good way to look at it, especially if you don't care about getting a MK view.

Thanks! I dont care for the mk view as we wont be in the room at night to really take advantage of it. I have read that lake view is preferred by some over mk view too. My dh wanted a condo and I wanted onsite so this is our compromise! lol.

I cannot wait for our daughters to see it when we get there!!!

Your only problem is you are running into the start of F&W Festival. BLT is a good place to stay for F&W because you can take the monorail to get to Epcot.

Welcome and congratulations! All of the Tower rooms were rehabbed March 2013. We prefer being on a high floor, away from CM. What view did you book? You're going to love CR!

You can either ask at check-in (if your room is ready) or you can call housekeeping from your room. Your trip is coming up SOON!

Welcome and you're going to love your first monorail resort stay, but don't frget about the walkway to the MK

I really wanted to try it this time Help!!
They probably aren't booked, they just haven't released inventory for non-CL rooms that are booked in great numbers by conventions. Keep checking and don't give-up. They will most likely soon release non-CL inventory for November 2014.

This can happen and also, because CR is a convention resort, they sometimes hold back rooms and don't release inventory as quickly as other resorts.

Make sure to note your birthdays in your reservation and I'll add your dates to the Log-orail

Welcome to the thread and happy planning, Kathy

In the Recreation section on the first page, I have a list of locations:

ELECTRICAL WATER PAGEANT:

Every evening at 10:10 PM, Disneys Electrical Water Pageant stops in front of the CR/BLT. The 14 illuminated floats, accompanied by music, was created for the dedication of the Polynesian Resort in October 1971 and it can be viewed from the Bay Lake side of the CR Tower and Bay Lake Tower, the beach, the dock for the Blue Flag boat launches and from the Garden Wing rooms that front Bay Lake.

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!
Aloha and welcome to the CR/BLT thread! I'll add your dates to the log. While there's lots of information on the first two pages to help you plan your first stay, feel free to ask any questions that might come up. You're going to love having practically everything under one roof in the Tower and the walkway to the MK is so convenient.

I've always watched the Electrical Water Pageant from my balcony on the TPV side. I guess I'm watching it when it's playing for the GF but it seems fine to me. Is there anything different about watching it from BLV?

In the last 48 hours, I have made I think 3 room changes, and am now, finally booked in a 1 bedroom villa at BLT 4/26-5/3 2014. (we were at the Poly, then switched to a studio, then a garden standard, then, finally, the 1 bedroom villa). Haven't been to WDW for 25 years!

ETA: Is there anything I should request room wise? We are in a lake view. We will be back in the room for naps in the afternoon.

Let's see…from a BLV room it's much closer, later at night, louder and not backwards. There's really nothing "wrong" at all with watching it from a TPV room so enjoy and thanks for mentioning that you can also see it from a TPV.

I'll add you to the Log-orail and congratulations! We loved staying in a one bedroom at BLT and we also had a LV. We requested an outer villa, facing the marina. There are also outer LV villas on the North side, closest to MK. You can see some of MK to the left in those rooms. The BLT room view/number thread has a schematic showing all the room locations which may help you with a general location request. Let us know if you think you might make more changes
