If you book LV and want to see the EWP, then an outer south-side villa or any inner villa will work. We prefer outer so that we don't overlook other rooms. Outer LV villas on the south overlook the CR and marina area and outer villas on the north side overlook the tennis courts and some have a partial MK view to the left.

The elevators are to the left and right as you walk in the main front entrance. The South-side is closest to the Skybridge. This is the sign you will see behind the front desk to your right in the lobby:



The elevator is a short walk away on the right and this is the sign you will find:






If your questions aren't fully answered here, the BLT Room View/Number thread by work2play is very helpful and knowledgable of all things BLT room location related. The link is on the first page.

Thank you so much! I think I'll request outer south side. Snowing here in Kentucky too. It happens sometimes. I remember a few snows on Derby Day!

Do 2 bedroom villas at BLT have salt and pepper? I seem to remember coffee, sugar and creamer but can't remember if salt and pepper are there? Also is some of the coffee decaf? Thanks!

You're welcome. I grew-up in IN and recall every year when spring arrived saying that it could still snow because one time it snowed on my dad's birthday in the middle of April.

You guys have been hit hard this winter - think happy, warm WDW thoughts!

No salt and pepper (though Contempo Cafe has it in packets) but, YES to the decaf. There are packets of sugar for the coffee.

Little late with this, but does anyone know what they are doing with the Olympiad?

From the DIS:

Olympiad Fitness Center closed 3/18/2013- 4/4/2013. Guests may use Grand Republic A in the convention center where a temporary fitness center has been set up.

I didn't know the CR was due for a refurb, but it's good to know . We are trying the CR for the first time in December and it would be great to have a new room (provided everything is done by then).

I can't answer your FB question, but I hope you have a wonderful vacation. Will you be able to post some room photos?

I just wanted to say thank you for this thread- it was so helpful when deciding where to stay for our trip next January 2014. We just booked a theme park view room and we are so excited! Thank you again.

You're so welcome! I know how much closer your vacation feels when you can look at photos and read about your resort and ask questions. What is your ADR date? Do you have your list made yet? I have a feeling BoG might be on there. I look forward to checking-out your PTR later!

Hi KOOK

Thanks for the link . I've been trying to keep up with the Poly refurb that I wasn't aware anything was going on at the CR. Unless something drastic changes for our December trip, we are definitely giving the CR a try . The only thing I'm still trying to decide is whether or not to try CL or just stick with TPV .

Hi!
I had no idea the rooms were being refurbished... any idea when they will all be finished? (sorry if the answer was already posted)

This bus depot rehab or whatever it is, it won't impede me from walking to MK will it? I really can't figure out what's going on with the plans that are posted.

So far we have:
Garden Grill
Cape May Café ( my DH favorite breakfast buffet)
Hollywood and Vine ( My DS favorite characters)
Princess Breakfast
Cinderella Castle ( breakfast / lunch or dinner whatever we can get)

I haven't figured out our exact ADR date yet, I think sometime in August. We will probably add 3-4 more as we get closer to our 180day window. I hate to admit it but one of my favorite places is The Plaza in MK - the cheesesteak is to die for haha

I will definitely post photos! I can't wait to see the new decor! And I found the Facebook page by doing a search. I should have done that first! Thanks!
