    Thanks to YOU for managing all of this. I enjoyed checking out the posts when dreaming about our trip and wanted to contribute. We LOVED our first visit to our new "home"!

    Okay.. I'm ready to stay there. What nice photos. I love the laundry room. I'm so weird because I'm always happy to do laundry on vacation but at home it piles up for days. LOL...

    We stayed in room 8232 (studio) and I don't see any pics from that room on this thread yet :cool1:

    I asked for a view of the Contemporary, higher floor and got exactly that.

    Great pictures downontheBW, thanks for posting. I am wondering what category room this was? I know you said it was a Studio but was wondering what kind of studio. We are booked in a LV studio in September and this view would be awesome (I too requested highest floor possible). I could sit out on my balcony all day and watch the monorail go by if my kids would let me :goodvibes.

    It is a lake view studio. If you go to post #1, you can tell which rooms are which view categories.

    Awesome view!

    Just saw this thread & it reminded me I need to give you a few of my pics from studio # 7808!! It was a great location and these views were pretty good bcuz we didn't have to do a lot of leaning in either direction to see the MK or anything. It was really good, would've been better if we'd been on a higher floor (less distraction from the parking lot / tennis courts) but still happy with it as a LV!! :thumbsup2

    As work2play said, this is a LV room. Actually I spent a lot of time reading on that balcony - just my DH and me so we did some serious relaxing.

    And, most important, I forgot to thank :worship: work2play for a great thread and all your hard work. It is wonderful to be able to visit a resort and know all about the rooms and views beforehand!!
    :thanks:

    Thanks to everyone that has been posting! I could not do it without you... As much as I would like to stay in every room, your photos have made this a great thread! :banana::banana:

    Question about the dishwasher. We only stayed in the studio so far so didn't have a dishwasher. Next time we go, we will be in a 2 bedroom lock off, and we are planning to have some breakfasts in the room. Do they supply the rooms with detergent for the dishwasher, or do we need to bring it? I know they supply detergent for washing individual dishes, but I will be on vacation...

    Yes, they give you packets of dishwasher detergent.

    I put every single thing that could possibly go in that dishwasher (including the coffee pot) and ran it every single night. No dish washing for me! You can ask them for additional dishwasher detergent, too.

    as others have said yes, they give you dishwasher detergent, and ...laundry detergent! My favorite part of staying in a larger dvc villa. washer & dryer. No bringing dirty clothes home, no dragging the stuff to the laundry facility. Enjoy your trip!

    Do any one bedrooms NOT have a connecting door? We've never stayed at BLT, but we always request a room without a connecting door and I don't know if this is possible in a one bedroom.

    At BLT there are no dedicated 1BR so all 1BR units have a connecting door (connects to a studio).

    Thank you, dizfan!

    Do you (or anyone else) know if noise passes easily through the connecting door at BLT?

    The connecting door is in the hallway with the closet, not in the "living space", so I never noticed any noise whatsoever. :thumbsup2
