They never said they were upgrading us or that we had a lake view.
It was an HA room.

Just got back from our eventful trip to BLT! We had some rough times (flew out during a snowstorm, had a very sick child who needed to go to the ER on his bday), but we made the best of it. We did get a great 2 BD LV room: 7602. I'll try to post photos in the next post.
Did they charge the extra points?

Here are links to the posts about the "upgrade". After contacting MS who couldn't explain the problem the owner was returned the difference in points. Scary thing is that there wasn't any explanation of why it had been done.
Your 2nd link reminds me of something. About 2-3 days before we were due to arrive we got a call on my cell and at home from the contemporary but they left no message. When I called back the cm said that if they needed anything they would just call me back.
I bet that was what was happening.
I'm calling MS first thing in the morning because it looks like they charged me.
That is so not good! Please post back and let us know what you find out.
We just checked in to Bay Lake. We booked a 2 bedroom, lake view. I was HOPING to get one of the highly coveted "Even #, north side of tower" rooms.
We lucked out!! 8112 is fantastic!! The view is incredible for a lake view. The room is in in pretty good shape overall. The carpet is pretty worn, but there have been no visible damage to any of the furnishings.
I love looking out our window and seeing Space Mountain, sure as heck beats looking out and seeing the snow
Yay for you!!! Enjoy your stay!!
Please post some view photos from that room, we don't have any posted yet! It is a handicapped accessible 2 BR dedicated room correct?
I will post them as soon as I get home, still away on business.
In October 2009 we stayed in the south wing great views and close to the sky bridge.
I was wondering why the "Even #, north side of tower" rooms were so highly coveted ?
Could you see any of Illuminations from there? Just curious. I assume you get the light from DTD on that side too.
Asked for even number, but don't really care which side.
Because you get a partial MK view and can watch MK fireworks from balcony.
You can only see EPCOT and DTD from the south side even numbered rooms and then you have to be pretty high up to see over the trees. We were on the 7th floor southside and could barely see the ball at EPCOT, but it was a great view from the 12th floor.
As work2play says, you can see Epcot from the BLT villas that are on the South wing, especially if you are high up. We were in 8142, a 1-bedroom villa on the 11th floor of the South wing, and we could easily see Spaceship Earth at Epcot and the Characters-in-Flight balloon at Downtown Disney. At night, we could see the fireworks at Epcot, although at that distance the show doesn't have the same impact as when you are on the boardwalk at BWV.
These photos were taken from #8142 using a 300mm zoom lens. None of the photos we took of the Epcot fireworks came out well because of the low light:
This photo shows the Dolphin & Swan hotels and Mickey's Sorcerer's Hat at Hollywood Studios:
Yes, my favorite 1 BR room is 8242, the view is awesome. Here is what it looks like without the zoom!
Here is from 7744, you need to be higher up to get a good view over the trees...
Stayed in 7838 at the beginning of the month. Sorry that the pictures aren't better. The fog was CRAZY!

Our room was one of the remodeled ones:
Thanks Lynn57! Wow I have not seen fog like that at WDW. Thanks for the studio remodel photo. When we were in 7744 they were remodeling the studios near our room. It looks nice!

Wishes from Top of the World Lounge on Superbowl Sunday:
All of the pictures taken from the balcony were from the middle of the balcony, no leaning over the railing to see the Castle!!!
We sat in the living room and watched Wishes one of the nights, absolutely incredible!!
I thought I loved the MK View studio we stayed in back in October, but this
2 Bedroom Villa blew that away. The extra space was so nice with my parents joining us. But I can see the problem coming, DW and I are going to struggle to stay in studios!! 1 Bedrooms here we come!!!
