Hi again Two more questions....sorry! You know how things go right before you leave!

1. My mom and sister are arriving in the morning, which I'm guessing will put them at BLT via ME a few hours before the official check in. Is there somewhere for them to store their carry ons if our room isn't ready? They mentioned maybe heading over to MK or going to DTD, but didn't want to haul their carry ons with them. Also, they'd be ok to go to the pool even though they aren't officially "in" yet, right? We did online check in.

2. We are a group of all adults, so we're trying to figure out room charging. My mom said we can just use her card as the room account, but we all want to help pay it down. Can we go down to the front desk (at BLT?) periodically throughout our stay and use our own CCs or Gift Cards to pay on the room balance? I know I've read you can assign different CCs to different MBs, but that it doesn't always work properly and that sounds like a mess to deal with.

Thanks!!

#1 - yes, all resorts have bell services to leave your carry ons.
And yes, they can go to the pool

#2 - as you said, I know you can assign different cc to different MBs. I have not tried, but have read that you can go to the desk with GC or cc before they process final bill

Thank you so much! We always drive, so this is our first experience dealing with ME and luggage questions .

#1 We always leave our bags with Bell Services and collect them on the way back tot he room. Never had an issue.

#2 We did this 2 trips ago when we took my MIL. No issue for them to link different C\C. It doesn't link to you room per se as much as it does the MB. So if you order a drink at the pool and use your MB (swipe + your pin) it will go to the C\C associated with the MB.

When we checked out, we did have a few items that showed from my MIL's purchases. The front desk fixed it in about 3 minutes. No big deal.

The frnt desk for BLT is actually located in the Contemporary.

Hi all! In 49 days, we'll be making our first stay at BLT after multiple stays in the CR Tower. We booked a lake view and I currently have a request for a higher floor, odd number so we would be on the inside of the "C". However, I was thinking that I might like to be on the outside facing the Contemporary marina. Two questions --

1 - How would I state this in my request? Even number, south facing room? Or would I ask for an even number room facing the Contemporary marina/pool?

2 - Any reports on success of getting this sort of view if requested? If I am granted my odd number request, I would at least be able to see the BLT pool. My fear is getting an outside on the northern side, which I'm not sure we would enjoy as much just based on some of the pictures I've seen of that view.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Great information! I thought there was a BLT desk in BLT now, no? Is that just for when you check in? Thanks!

We drove and checked in at the desk in BLT. Our rooms were not ready, so BLT got two luggage racks and had bell services from CR store our luggage while we walked around waiting for our rooms to be ready. We used my mom's CC for all of our MBs and they set that up when we checked in. When we got in our rooms, we just called bell services and they delivered the luggage to the room, so you don't have to actually walk over to the CR, but that is where bell service is. HTH!

Yes! That helps a LOT, thanks Did you keep all the charges on your mom's CC, or did you go down periodically and pay off parts of it with other CCs or GCs? I'm just trying to decide which method will be easier.

Hello!

Quick question ~ Has anyone ever been able to snag a 2 bedroom BLT villa under the military discount? Thanks!

We just kept all the charges on her CC, but I don't see why they would have a problem with paying off part of it at any time. They don't actually charge the CC until you check out of the resort

If you're staying at BLT, you can use both BLT pools and the contemporary pools?
