    That's a standard view room?--wow, wow, wow! Since you're on the third floor I guess it could be an upgrade. Oh yeah, I'll just check your thread that shows the map of the rooms.

    OMG, what more can you ask for, 2 live reports with pictures and live streaming. We're leaving on Thursday. I haven't received a call for a classroom yet, so I'm going to enjoy the wait in the world.

    Based on your map on your thread showing room locations, it appears that you should be in an LV room. Here is the link to BLT Rooms and Views: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082
    I found your live stream on another thread earlier. Pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing Wish this evening.

    OK, just came from the front desk. (Son lost room key!). I asked about my room. She looked it up and said "standard view"! We think it might be due to the trees? She thought there were standard view rooms on floors 1-5, but she was not sure exactly where they would be...

    I will update the maps when I get back. Looks like it may be more complicated than what we thought. We will have to wait for others to post their standard view room details!

    My guess is it's standard view because of the trees. Add it to your chart (when you get back)!

    Enjoying your trip report! If you have time, can you please take a picture of the "famous" bathroom door gap? Thanks. Have a great vacation!

    Congrats on squeezing in this trip to Disney. We are also BLT owners but won't be there until Dec.
    PS - we are right around the corner from you in Columbia

    Hi there to another Howard County resident! We are in Lisbon! We go in November and I am so enjoying Work2play's trip report! How exciting. I have to say, I am thinking Standard view isn't so bad! Might have to consider that! Hope you have a great trip in December!

    OK, a few more room photos! I will get back to what we did, and sprinkle in more view photos. It is really funny because many of the best views are from the elevator banks and stairwells!

    And the now infamous "gap" between the bathroom door and the wall:

    It really did not bother me, and I am actually one of the people that likes the layout of the studio with the bathroom sink on the kitchenette side. I never had a problem with a steamed up mirror!

    Thanks again for all the pictures...and angles of things we don't normally see! Like a sliver of a tub. ;) :goodvibes

    I see that there are places for smaller bags...I suspected as much.

    Enjoy your stay!

    Howdy fellow Clarksville DVC neighbor! I had to chuckle when I read about how close you are to the airport and the super low Southwest fares to Orlando. I say that ALL THE TIME!

    Thanks so much for the great trip report with pictures. I just made reservations for next July at BLT. I am so looking forward to it. Have a great vacation!
