BLT has their own front desk in the lobby, and I do believe you would check in there I've only stayed at CR but have walked over to BLT to explore.

Room request

I've searched the forum and tried skimming this thread, but can't find who / where I send the room requests. I know in my past stays at the CBR, it was via fax. I'm not sure if that is still used or if email is a better option. Any advice along with a fax / email would be greatly appreciated.

I've surmised that it's best to do it 5 days prior to check-in, which I think would mean Wednesday for a Sunday check-in. Is this correct? Or should I do it on Tuesday?

Thanks in advance!
Brian

The best way to make room requests is to call and have them added to your reservation. That can be done any time from the day you book up until 4-5 days prior to your arrival. They assign rooms 2-3 days out.

I can finally say that I check in THIS MONDAY! Ahhhhh! So excited :D


Question: is alcohol allowed on the Contemporary 4th floor viewing deck of Wishes? Like, could we bring a bottle of champagne to toast? I'm hopeful that we may luck out with a partial TPV in our LV villas, but in case we don't, we may want to watch Wishes our first night over at CR.

Must be referring to the sky bridge on the 4th floor between BLT and CR.

Hi! We are staying at the contemporary in a garden view room, in September. I had a few questions I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to. I keep trying to book the the wave restaurant for an early dinner but the earliest I can find is 7pm. What gives ? I was hoping to do 5 - 5:30. Also, I'm sure that this has been asked a million times but can I view the MK fireworks from anywhere in the hotel? Was hoping to see them from inside the resort on our first night because I'm sure we'll need time to unwind. My last question, I have a son with a rare genetic condition. I'm hoping to bring a special needs travel bed with us. It looks kind of like a tent. Do you think I should notify the hotel ahead of time? I don't want anyone thinking we're smuggling in extra people.
Thanks!

One last question: since I'm travel with my special needs son who is not walking yet ( still toddler so fits in a stroller) are there any rooms I should request in the garden wing that would be best for us (ie: closer to the main building or roomier). Thanks

We just got back home on May 7th. We had a theme park view room, on 7th floor odd numbered room. I must say that Contemporary is definitely our favorite now!!!! My son has already asked several times if we can stay there again when we go back. Just wanted to say thanks to those who have posted such valuable info on here.

When staying at BLT, where do we get our refillable mugs? Anywhere at BLT or do we have to go to Contempo Cafe?

I have a question for the Bay Lake Tower experts. I would like to book a two bedroom for early March next year. I am currently in line waiting for DVC points to become available at David's. Around what time would you advise me to give up on the waiting list and try with Disney? Does anyone know when those type rooms begin to fill up? I really don't have a preference for certain views, we just need the two bedrooms. Thanks!

We booked our two bedroom at 11 months out. The 2 bedrooms seem to disappear really quickly! I started a whole thread about booking BLT on cash through CRO because it's such a quirky thing that really doesn't have any consistent rhyme or reason.

I would let the hotel know about the special bed before you go just so there is no issue with house keeping if you want to leave it up for the whole trip . Not really sure what it consist of but if it looks like a tent they may take it down / apart and ruin it on accident not knowing what it is while cleaning the room .

We are also staying in the garden wing in Sept for just a few days but this is our first visit to the CR so I am no help picking a room for request but I would call the resort and mention requesting a room closer to the tower when you tell them about the special bed .

Good Luck !!
