    You can request it but it doesn't make a lot of sense. The chances of a specific room being available for a particular stay is slim.

    And, if it is not, then the room assigners really have no way of knowing what you want.

    You are better of requesting the area that is most important. If you have more than one request, then I would suggest listing them in the order that you would like since requests are just that.

    When we stayed at BLT last year, I requested "Even #'d room, northern end, higher floor" because I really just wanted the outside and not the inside. But, I also wanted one of the partial MK rooms if possible but was okay if that didn't happen.

    I ended up with even #d room, northern end, 6th floor. Was very happy. This year, we are in a SV room and I just requested "not first floor" to hope I get one of the other rooms.

    Good luck!

    If you are booked in an MK view room, then you will be on the front curve anyway. What I would then request is "highest floor possible".

    If you are in a LV room and want to try for a room that has a partial view of the MK, then yes, even #'d room on the northern end.

    Hi everyone. I am an owner at BLT. We stayed there from January 21st to 28th. This was our second time staying. I know this room already has pictures up but I thought I would share anyway.

    Our room: SV, Room 7412. I was THRILLED with this view and miss it! LOL

    As you can see the service area was there but it really wasn't a big deal. I didn't even pay attention to it when you can see space mountain, the castle and rockets!

    Here was our view of wishes from the room.

    That was a standard view studio correct? If so, yeah, I'd be thrilled w/ that view if I hadn't paid for a MV or LV for sure. ;) I think that room was was classified appropriately and you got a great view for the price. :thumbsup2

    oops, sorry :flower3: ,

    ( been trying to do our pictures - { photopass & appox. 1,000
    that we took & fighting a stupid cold for 3 weeks} .

    ..fyi, i was @ work and before i could get home, another poster
    included his room didn't have any damages. whew, sure hope so.
    that not all the rooms were liked ours.

    we were shocked, as soon as we walked through the door. however,
    because our room the week before was so spectacular , & was
    made possible by special lady working with us....we tolerated it
    this one time. never again.

    things we learn. we will never accept another room std., or not , on
    the first floor. safety. the traffic we saw made us feel unsafe.

    even the shuffle board plucks were damaged. did they throw them
    @ someone? sure looked like it.

    once we added up all the damages, it became self-evident how they
    did it. [ like picking up the scooter to burn rubber.]

    one time, two partial-undressed females were frolicking in the hall.
    one noticed me watching them & mouthed "creep". really? have you
    looked in a mirror ? you do know this is wdw?, & undergarments are
    required? p.s.- i have a young daughter & i don't want her seeing this
    type of behavior. they had taken off their shoes & sitting outside
    one of the rooms. after my comments they booked it.

    when i think about it. locals & others are possibly renting points for
    a night or 2, & hosting parties. it would be cheap & prefect- because
    there is no security there.


    as for the towl, it was shoulder to shoulder on the 31st. [ i know there
    supposed to be a limit but if they are coming in from other avenues,
    then there no way to stop the over crowding. ] interesting enough,
    when i mentioned we were owners, some got out of the way so
    we made it to the front. that caught my attention, because it is
    first come, first serve...so i think they knew they didn't belong.
    anyone else there on the 31st? [ wish i took a picture how crowded.]


    we are expecting a family resort where we don't encounter this
    type of displays.

    our first room, 8420, was in~deeds magical. every night , it was
    filled with pixie dust. from watching tinker bell flying off the castle,
    too the light shows. in the mornings, the moon was seen behind
    the park. watching the mono rails on our balcony, was a treat!

    maybe , i' m old fashioned & spoilt but lady~like behaviors are
    endearing & never tiring. it was the first thing i noticed about
    my wife & still adore to this day. i hope disney doesn't change
    either.

    Room 7218 Standard View Studio

    This room already has pictures POST #100 but I wanted to add this picture of the view while standing in the middle of the room. We stayed there over MLK weekend. Loved the room and the view.

    Hey all, I have read through all the pages and I did see that many rooms in the first post indicate what they can see, but I didn't see many studios that can see the water pageant. We are booked in a lake view studio. Does anyone know if any of these can see the water pageant? We're traveling with an almost 2 year old so will have many early evenings and it'd be wonderful to see it from the room. Thanks for any tips!

    Also, I can't find a resort map that indicates where the elevator is located. I've requested a room on the 5th floor for now for convenience to the monorail with a stroller but if the elevator is not on a far end (requiring a lot more walking) then the floor won't matter as much. Anyone know of a map that shows where the elevators are located? TY again

    The gray bars on the map in post #1 of this thread are the elevator banks. The bridge to the monorail is on the 5th floor on the South / Contemporary Resort side. We had a 3rd floor lake view studio in that region and DW told me she watched the Water Pageant from the room while I having commando nights in the parks. Therefore, staying there would kill two birds with one stone!

    Hope you enjoy your room and have a great trip!

    Hi all-

    We're staying here for the first time on Feb 6 for four nights before heading out on the Disney Dream! We have a 1 bedroom Lakeview room as MK ("themepark") view is not available.

    Just from scanning some of the recent posts, it looks like people are getting partial MK views with standard view rooms. Would I be more likely to get a partial MK view if I downgrade to Standard view, providing its still available? Or are people just getting lucky? Do I ask for a partial view at check-in?

    Thank you very much for your advice!

    :goodvibes Glad I could help! FYI, I just found it and we were in room 7340 on that trip. Looking to the left from the balcony, we had this view:

    We stayed in BLT from January 21 thru the 30th. We own there and it was our 2nd stay since we bought in.
    We booked a SV 1 BR and I requested anything except the 1st floor.
    We received room 7912. It had a pretty darn good view of the castle for SV points.
    Loved it

    You got a 9th floor as standard view? Cudos, but that doesn't sound right. I thought the highest SVs were 5th floor... :confused3

    I would guess it was since AFAIK that wasn't actually a standard view room! It was in the lakeview category unless they are doing some real switching around of what rooms are in the different categories. Nothing on the 9th floor is standard.

    FYI - Another person who stayed at BLT in Jan had booked a standard view and then were told they were "upgraded" to lakeview. When they reviewed their points online they realized it wasn't a free upgrade and that the points had been deducted from their account for that upgrade. You may just want to double check that the same wasn't done to you.
