    We just got back last night. We were in 7827. It is a 1 bdrm. Bay Lake view room. We were in the center of the arch. We had a beautiful view of the pool and lake. I took pics of the room if anyone is interested. Out of all of the resorts we have stayed in, this is the first one that my DH said he REALLY liked. Never before has he commented on the room or when I asked he said it was "okay". He liked the clean lines, colors and the fact that it had 2 full baths in a 1 bedroom unit!

    We went to the Top of the World to watch Wishes on our second night. It was nice, but I don't know that I'll do it again for the fireworks. I may go just for the lounge. I really like the view of wishes from in front of the castle. Everything happens with the castle being in the forefront. When you watch it from The Top of the World, you see if more from the side and most of the fireworks are seen from the side and not behind the castle. Its just a preference on my part to have the visual of the castle in front of the fireworks. It was great to not have to fight the crowds though.

    I feel exactly the same way about the fireworks! Do you have a photo of the view from your room? I would love to post it on the thread.

    This is from the living room. The one I took from the bedroom has the same view. I can't believe I forgot to take one of the pool area. Sorry!

    We checked in today in a 1 bedroom standard view. Room is 7141, first floor. View of the courtyard. Will post pics once I have some taken of the room (we dropped our stuff off today and hit 2 parks and just got back)> Really impressed with the room.

    In the Disney magazine I received today they had an ariel view of BLT that showed a service area on the north crescent. I have a certain knack for getting "the dumpster view" or the room adjacent to the service area. I have a 2bdrm lockoff standard view booked for March, so I'm trying to figure out how to avoid being next to this area and still have a room on the outside of the north crescent. Has anyone been able to get a view of this from the tower?

    The pool area is in the distance here (but we are the closest room to the pool):

    Thank you for posting! I have only be back a few days and I miss it already! I like your room location, great access to the pool. Be sure to try the Bocee Ball, you can get the balls at the community center.

    Do yoy mean this area: (It was to the left from my balcony room 7306) I believe that it was where the air conditioning units were. I do not remember seeing any dumspters from there...

    If you request an even numbered room on the northside and got it, you would get XX04/06, XX08/10 or XX12/14, where I believe it will most likely be on the first 3 floors for standard view. XX08/10 and XX12/14 will definitely have a view of that area as well as the tennis courts and space mountain.

    I saw the picture also - I think the only way around it is to ask for a even numbered room (outside rooms end in even #'s) in the South wing (facing the Comtemporary).

    w2p - yes that is the view I was talking about! It might not necessarily be the dumpsters, but a service area. I have been assigned the dumpster view at BWV and VWL numerous times. It's a joke with anyone who travels with me. I even have my dd9 trained to run to the balcony and check for dumpsters. I am a light sleeper and the trucks beeping when they back up (usually @ 5am) wake me up.

    Eeyore3838 - I liked your view. Was it quite or could you hear people walking by? I think I will probably request an inside room or as dreamLinda said an outside facing the CR.

    It was quiet for the most part. I did not hear people walking by, but when they had the pool party at 3pm, I could hear some of the music when the room was quiet. (And then we just went in the pool :thumbsup2)
