Well, I'm super sad, but we had to cancel our BLT reservation for December today. BLT was excluded from the late fall RO offer, but VWL was included and available, so we switched to that. The savings (nearly $2000) was just too much to pass up. I'm hoping that when we're at the YC next month we can snag BLT via a BB, but I'm not holding out hope.

Thanks to SRUAlum and her awesome stalking skills, I knew exactly when to check for a BLT 1 bedroom SV and snatched it up in January. It's now showing as available, so hopefully it can make someone else happy.

Ha!!!! Glad I could help and sorry you had to switch That just means you can keep it on the list for next time!

I was searching our room for a BB offer and didn't see one! Maybe the DVC resorts don't put them out since most people stay with points?

Great pics! Makes me miss BLT and our great vacation there
I saw a BB in the back of the welcome/info folder that was on the shelf under the TV. Wish I could have booked one!

After I posted that I was unpacking and found the big Be Our Guest booklet and it was folded up in the middle of the booklet! Geesh! Needle in a haystack! Ha! Unfortunately, I'm a teacher and the only valid dates are during school (its invalid during holidays.) Oh well!

I was a DVC member for years and sold. Of course now my family has gotten the Disney bug back! What is BB. I'm heading down in November and would love to head back to WDW and stay at the Poly in June?

Do you mind posting the dates and any exclusions? Because you haven't done enough for this community already!

Aw! Ha! I love it! The CR and BLT have my heart

The discount is 35% at villas and deluxe and 30% at mods. The valid dates are
7/28-8/2
8/17-10/4
10/17-11/6
11/9-11/21
12/11-12/23

*exclusions are listed as being - 3 bedroom villas, campsites, AOA, and Villas at the GF

Anyone know if you get the rate for your full stay if your check in date falls in those dates, or do I recall them changing it and you only get it for the specific dates which qualify?

We are just back from 6 night on the 12th Floor! (We also stayed at the Hard Rock.) Our room was the last one on the MK side, closest to the MK. It was so quiet. The lounge staff was great, very attentive. The food yummy. The bathrooms were pretty, but oh so not functional. There was no hook for your clothes, no clothes line to dry a wet bathing suit, to little counter space. The pool also, really needs to be deeper than 3'. Neither my teen nor I could really swim. It is more of a "splash" pool.

We do love the CR, it is our 3rd stay here.

Room discounts are date specific and only apply to the dates that fall within the promo, so any nights outside those dates would be at rack rate.

Thanks for posting, glad you had another great CR stay . That's good to hear about the lounge staff and food as we are hoping to try CR CL sometime next year.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, or has already been stated, but can this discount be applied to rooms that were booked 3 months ago? Our dates are within the valid dates.
