Good to know! We have a 2 bedroom Lake View so I think I am going to be spoiled after this trip!

Fellow BLT DVC owners...anybody else get the new GF DVC brochure in the mail ? My interest were somewhat peaked but then realized my fav 1 BR layout did not have a second bathroom like we have at BLT... love having the second bathroom at BLT even though it is just DH and me...makes for a much happier marriage !. Guess I have officially become a ...gulp..BLT snob !

BLT owners since 2010. We love CR/BLT. We will back for our 2nd stay in 20 days. This time DS, DBIL and DNewphew will be staying there too. They booked a LV Studio and we are a 1B LV, so we are praying or a little pixie dust that we get vilas connected.

We have linked our resides with DVC, that what reservations told my sis to do.
Of course, no guarantee....but we are hopeful.

Does anyone have an email or fax numer that I can use to send a friendly greeting, to hopefully help us with our request.

....so excited to be back at BLT...I can not get enough of these boards....

ixiedust:to all...

Owner here...did not get anything in mail but did see photos of GFV they look beautiful....

If I did not have 1 in college, 1 private HS and 1 on his way to private HS...I would consider buying just for DH and me. I do not think my boys would appreciate the beauty.

Love BLT too.... Love 2 baths....be there in 20 days....

I'm not a BLT owner, but I agree, we loved having the extra Bathroom in our BLT stay than our usual BW (where we do own) stays. And we just bought a AKV contract resale, and booked Kidani over Jambo for the extra bath (and just to try it since we just stayed in Jambo on a cash stay). To go backwards to just 1BR doesn't make sense. Even looking at the point charts, we literally said if we were going to splurge on points and do another monorail stay, it's a much better value to do BLT LV or MK view.

Plus VGF doesn't give easy access to the Contempo Cafe cupcakes!!!

It arrived yesterday, but i haven't opened it yet. I own at BLT and BWV. I'll stay at the VGF eventually, but probably won't buy there. I'd be more likely to add on more points at BLT.

I'm so excited -- we'll be checking into BLT in a little over a week! My parents are planning to come over to visit us one day for a few hours. Do I need to let anyone know or can they just provide my name/room number to the guard?

Hi - Just wondering if anyone here had heard about the upcoming MyMagic+ testing for CR and AKL guests? Apparently those checking in on either June 20, 21, or 22 are eligible for the test. Anyone here going on those dates? I was just curious to hear if they would indeed participate in the test and also then report back here with what they thought of it.

Bay Lake Tower Resort is Wonderful

Returned home and this is a wonderful resort. We had the best view of the castle and the fireworks. My only disappointment was having to come home and not getting a good night time picture of the castle changing colors or the fireworks. If anyone has a nice jpg picture of these please private message me. Thank You

Has anyone ordered a birthday cake and balloons, or one of the chocolate characters/monorail from the resort? We are celebrating my niece's birthday on our next visit, and I'd like to do something. Disney Florist options seem expensive and aren't exactly what I'm looking for anyways (I've ordered from them in the past, it's easy but very overpriced).

Do any of the gift shops sell balloons? Even if I could just pick up those and a few treats, that'd probably be good. Any thoughts or suggestions for a 2 year old? Many thanks!!

Sorry if this is a repeat, but do the refrigerators in the rooms have a freezer section? Are they "real" refrigerators with a compressor or are the just pelter coolers?

DVC (BLT) refrigerators have freezer section. CR refrigerators do not.
