Wow! What a great view. Thanks for sharing with us.
According to csaribay (on another thread) these are the room view designations for BLT:
"4F (MK view) 4L (Bay Lake View) or 4Z (I think - should be Standard View)"
Since Chris wasn't sure about 4Z and your res. has 4W, it may be that 4W is actually "STD View".
I wish people would stop posting amazing LV view photos!!
Now I want one of the MK view LV rooms (if that makes sense) over the actual MK view rooms!
We stayed at 7540, a studio, lake view. Look to the left:
Look straight ahead:
Look to the right:
My reservation has (4O) after the lake view one bedroom villa.
Ours was a 1BR LV, #8110 (north outside of the C)
This is taken from the balcony of the bedroom looking left.
At night from the living room looking left.
Excellent view! I certainly wouldn't mind that for LV points.
We stayed in 8429 a 2BR LV from 2/28 - 3/5. Loved it! Requested upper floor even numbered room. We got 14th floor odd number room. We arrived at noon and the room was not ready until about 3:45. At around 2PM I went and asked when the room would be ready. No pressure I was trying to decide if we should walk over to MK or wait to get into the room. The CM at the desk went in the back and came out 15 minutes later to tell me that he had changed our room to a higher floor and it would be ready soon. Its possible we originally had an even numbered room but we were very happy with the room we got. Its right near the south elevator so easy access to the sky bridge. With 4 kids under 6 we were happy with the short walk. Here is the daytime and sunrise view:
Our party was also in a LV studio. I'll post view pictures next.
We spent 1 night with 9 ppl. in a two BR. OK for one night but my cousin, his wife and DD4 were happy to move to a studio for the rest of the week. We checked them in at 8AM hoping to get a room near our 2 BR. The CM at the desk took a look and said she could get them "close". She did a great job. They got the phone call that their room was ready at 3:30PM. It was right down the hall on the other side of the elevators.
Amazing view and beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.
Will this be visible to all Lake View Rooms? I think my DD would really enjoy it!
I am loving all these incredible views. Even the SV rooms seem to have great views. Beautiful!
My ONLY problem with this resort and some of those great views.....the thought of one of my kids goofing off or playing around and then falling over the railing from one of those VERY HIGH balconies. Scares me!
LV rooms on the South outer side of the tower (high even numbers for the last two digits) should have a good view; DW watched it almost every night when we were in LV studio 7340 on the third floor. In fact, I think middle or lower floors might be the best for watching it; looking down at a steep angle things might get distorted. Rooms on the north inner side of the tower (low odd numbers) MIGHT have a view, especially when it is across the lake and by Wilderness Lodge. I'm not sure if it is "double sided" though, so it might be even less exciting than 'the back side of water'. However, I'm pretty sure rooms ending with low even (north outer) and high odd (south inner) will NOT be able to see it at all. Hope that helps!
FWIW, I stopped and watched it from the sky bridge one night in Feb and thought that was a great viewing spot, so if you can't see it from your room and don't feel like heading to the beach this is another option.
Thanks! My parents will be babysitting on a couple of nights and it will be easier for them if they don't have to go anywhere with DD. Could you see any fireworks from your room? It would be awesome if she could see both, but I think she'd rather have the water pageant if we have to choose.
Hmmm....I was considering booking a MK view studio, but looking at these pics, it's not the view that you see from the CR itself...MK is almost an afterthought in this view....looks like all MK views are not created equal....still a nice view, but not what I pictured. Thanks for posting!
I don't think it would be possible to see both fireworks (at least NOT MK's; you MIGHT be able to see Epcot's WAYYYYYY in the distance...) and the water pageant from any room in BLT, at least not very well for either! I'd suggest you stick with the WP and try asking for "a room ending in a high even number on a middle or lower floor" (like 7340 we were in). My guess is that might be a fairly easy request to get as I doubt too many people want that; even always seems to be trying for a high floor and sneaking in seeing the castle despite paying for lake view!!!
Have to agree. I have a MK view studio booked for August. I am not going to be happy if it's this type view. Those who have booked lakeviews have sometimes gotten better MK views than this one.
I wonder if there is something in particular that I should be asking to be put on my 'requests' in order to get a really decent MK view.
