    Stick with the request at check-in, too. When we checked in and they have us the number, I knew it was a high floor inner ring, and we just kept it because it was at least a high floor. In hindsight, we should have even asked to switch, the outer ring views are definitely nicer. Enjoy the trip!!

    Just curious, we will be in a BLT studio Lake View and have already requested a high floor but want to be on the outer ring, which numbers do I need to look for at check-in so I know that it is what I want? Are all the even numbers on the outer ring and the odd numbers are the inner ring? We do plan on doing online check-in too and will be making requests again, but when we get there I will be checking and talking to the CM about it too. Thanks for anyone's help.

    these are the only ones I found
    7202
    7216
    7230
    7144

    the charts says that the one higher are lakeview??? or MK

    now next year there will be more

    would think only 4 dedicated 2-bedroom standard view would be gone the first day you can get them

    if you got one later - then my apologies.

    yes, that's exactly it. Then subtract 70 from the first two numbers for the floor. So 7504 would be on the 5th floor. 8438 would be the 14th floor. Finally the numbers start with -01 on the north far corner and wrap around, so 7504 would be on the north side (sideways view of MK), while 8438 would be south side (facing Contemporay and the Marina, which I think is also a great view). I'm not specifically sure if the numbers I mentioned are studios (see the first page for that), just giving the general scheme.

    Thank you so much for the information...it helped me out a lot. The view that we would like to get is the view facing the CR and the Marina (glad to know you think that is a great view :goodvibes). We are so excited for our first DVC stay here (stayed at BCV twice and SSR once) and we want to make sure we have a great view of the lake :goodvibes.

    I had requested north, outer, high floor. Rec'd south outer 6th fl:rolleyes:
    Actually worked out great for us. We spent alot of time at the Contemporary.
    There is already pics from 2010 with comments on the condition of the room. Sadly, its the same 2 years later.

    We arrived at BLT Saturday and will move over to WL/CL tomorrow. This was our first stay ever in a villa and we have loved our one bedroom. I have nothing but good things to say about BLT and our BLV villa. I requested a high floor, outer villa and we received the 6th floor facing the CR/marina - it's perfect. We are steps from the stairs and we just go down one floor right to the skybridge - so quick!

    I will post photos (our view is exactly the same as above) and probably a TR next month when we get home. I'll post the link here.

    Am curious to hear about the room size comparison to CR rooms. Bigger? Smaller? Amenities?

    ETA: As of yesterday they started a trial of check-ins at BLT. They don't know how long the trial will last and the BLT CM said that this was only being done between 7-10 pm when she said they have the most check-ins. I always thought most guests arrived earlier, but it seems they still have to check-in at the CR.






    The one bedroom villa's only similarity with a CR room is that the furnishings, marble, style... is very similar to a room at the CR. The villa is more than twice as big at 1000 SF. A room at the CR is about 420 SF. We have two full bathrooms, a whirlpool tub, king bed, a double sleeper and a single chair bed. There's also a W/D, two closets, two TVs, generous storage space and a full kitchen. It's amazing and beautiful. I highly recommend it and you have all the conveniences of the CR just a short walk away.

    We usually ask for an even number, high floor, in that order, because we want an even number room and a high floor is a bonus.

    We only do studios, because I am points cheap. Glad you liked it.

    Glad you enjoyed it, sounds like you might have made the switch to your favorite home away from home already. After being spoiled with the 1BR, was it tough going to a regular room?
    Did you do Cali Grill or the Wave while you were there?
    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Look at the third and forth pictures on the very first post. You are only looking at one side of the building, hence why you only have even number rooms. Unless I missed part of the post and the PP was specifically looking for even number rooms.

    Has anybody ever stayed in a fully HA 2-bedroom lockoff?

    We had a fully accessible, lake view Studio last month, room no 7914 We had both a bath with shower plus the roll-in shower with chair. This had two shower heads to use.

    The storage in the room was good, although I missed the kitchen area of the non-accessible studios. The negatives of the room were; not a great deal of space between the bed and sofa bed, the storage of the cushions from the sofa bed when folded out. Also, the microwave was so big there was no room to place the toaster or coffee maker safely near to the electric socket.

    We didn't hear any noise from the laundry area below, we have done on lower floors. The views were amazing too.

    barrysprot36 - See my problem is that I need 2 bathrooms that don't have a tub/shower combo. I need one that has a roll-in shower with grab bars and shower seat and one regular shower stall setup but that also has grab bars. From what I heard, I don't believe that setup exists at BLT.

    Hi everyone! Where has the summer gone! Thanks for the photos, I updated the first post with the links. I will have to update the picture for 7208 and 7241, making them lake view instead of standard view... I will do that in the next couple of days, that file is on my other computer....

    We are just a few weeks from our next stay at BLT, I can't wait to get there, it has been too long!

    Hi everyone! I just finished reading through all 127 pages - it took me a few days, but I did it! Yay! :) We are renting points from a points broker for our stay in September. We have two tiny ones and will be making trips back to the room each day for naps. What are some requests I should make to ensure we get a quiet room? Of course a view would be nice, but I'm mostly concerned about getting the itty bitties to sleep soundly! We've never stayed here before (or on Disney property at all, actually, even though we've visited WDW tons of times!). Also, I'm not sure how to make a request since we're going through a rental place for points. Help! Thanks a bunch.
