    So, we were fortunate enough to book our Thanksgiving 2010 trip at BLT!! :cool1: GREAT way to celebrate the big 4 - 0 !!!

    One thing that came up, however, when I was making a request (just a request, not a guarantee, yes I know :o) ) since we are in a LV villa ... when I requested an upper floor I was told by a very nice CM that they were no longer able to make that request. When I asked why he told me that there were "no upper LV rooms" !!! What ?!?!?! Isn't the whole interior of the "C" pretty much Lake Views? I thanked him polietly and we finished the details. I then called back to see if speaking with another CM might get me more info but she just confirmed that a memo had gone out last week and that there were "no LV villas on the upper floors."

    Anyone else run in to this?

    Wondering if we should just switch to a standard view and request a "monorail view" :thumbsup2

    This thread has been so helpful in deciding to add-on at BLT and all of the other information to make our trip wonderful -- I hope I asked this question in the right spot.

    Happy New Year!!

    Thank you for a great thread, I am so glad I found it. I will be staying in a 2bdr LV, Nov 1-7, 2010. I requested room near elevators will that diminish my hopes of getting partial MK/fireworks view? I also requested north/even. Also can't figure out how to print map. Thanks Morgana

    I believe that there are only 3 rooms that meet your request 8112,8212 and 8312. They appear to be dedicated 2 BR dedicated rooms. They are near the elevator and are handicap accessible. All of the rest of the 2 BR dedicated rooms that are even and face north end in 02. You should decide what is most important to you and ask for that, if your request is too restrictive, I would guess it would be harder to fill.

    If you PM me your email address, I can send you the maps in excel, which you should be able to print easily.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your reply, I can't PM you it won't let me....
    I don't think I want the HA room so I will just stick with north/even. Thanks again. Morgana

    We stayed in 7312 in early December. Or view was quite similar to locodemickey's except we could only see the tip top of the castle.

    I did finally learn how to post photos, work2play, so will try to add our view from both this room and the 12 floor Bay Lake view we had in September.

    Do you know if the accessible rooms that end in 12 have roll in showers? We have a dedicated 2 BR with roll in shower reserved for May.

    Thanks for all your work.:goodvibes

    This is a great tool. I have been searching for a similar set of information on BWV and AKV. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any help would be great. Thanks

    We just return home and stayed in room 8230 on the 12th floor, dedicated 2 bedroom, MK view. I would like to say that after reading all these post and expecting the castle to be straight out your living room window, I was kind of disappointed when I walked into our room. But after a day of staying there I am so excited we stayed in the room we got. We could see the contemporary's pool, the contemporary hotel, the Christmas tree outside, the walkway bridge, the monorail going into the contemporary, the castle, space mountain and the best part was that we could see the fireworks from Epcot, Hollywood Studio's and MK.
    So, if you don't get a room with the castle directly in front of you, don't let it ruin your entire vacation. It can be a good thing!

    We were booked for a Lake View 1-bedroom the second week of December. I was hoping against hope that we'd get one of the almost-Magic-Kingdom-view LV rooms, but what we got barely even qualified as a "lake view"...

    We got Room 8611, on the 16th Floor. I think they thought they were doing us a favor giving us a top-floor room, but I was so incredibly disappointed. I knew there was only a slim chance we'd get a Lake View room that also included a bit of the MK, but I figured at least we would have a gorgeous view of the lake either way. Instead, we got a view of other people's rooms.

    You could see the lake if you stood at an angle all the way to one side of the room:

    As it turned out, it was so foggy both of the mornings we were in the room, the view didn't really matter! :rolleyes:
