    We had our first stay at BLT in Oct for wine & food festival and believe we had 8212. We requested a room on the outside curve and couldn't have been happier. It was technically a lake view but we enjoyed the fireworks from the balcony. Can't wait to go back next year...great DVC purchase!

    What an awesome thread full of unlimited info!
    Just wondering, at the main pool are there plenty of umbrellas to go around?
    Do they have waitresses coming around asking if you would like anything to eat or drink? If not, is there any service if you rent a cabana?

    Thanks!

    The one bedroom starts at $1452/night, two bedroom $2055/night and presidential starts at $2271/night. It goes up depending on season and weekday/weekend.

    I'm sorry, but I don't. But, there are also great breakfast choices nearby: The Wave has a great breakfast menu and buffet (photos on first page), Contempo Cafe and Chef Mickey's also serve breakfast. You're just a monorail ride away from Kona and 'Ohana at Poly, The GF Cafe has a lovely breakfast and a character breakfast at 1900. You can even take the boat over to WL and eat at Whispering Canyon or Trail's End at FW (plus the quick serves at WL, Poly and GF).

    Thank you, sydjim! Servers sure would be great at the pool, however, none of the WDW resorts have any. However, the cabana does have the option of having food brought to you from room service.

    From contemporaryresort.net:

    If Guests are interested in confirming poolside dining options in their
    Cabana, they may order directly using the house phone in the Cabana or
    can call in advance at 407 824-1786.


    Have you considered a Grand Villa at BLT?

    Thank you! I have actually been a Disney TA for a while now but Disney offers a traning program a couple of times a year for agents where they get to do site inspections and seminars at the resorts. Can't wait!


    How great! What a perfect place to train - good luck with your new career:badpc: (JK!)[/QUOTE]

    Do they still have the Disney College of Knowledge? I had to do that when I was a TA for AAA ( a lifetime ago). I wasn't able to go on the FAM trip when it was offered :(

    Have a great time! We are exciting to be going back in less than a week!!!

    Absolutely, and I think it is the cheapest buffet on property.

    Hi all! I'm thrilled to be staying at BLT for the first time. In October. Too far away. :( Anyway we're getting a studio and I just checked out the floor plan on this amazing thread. How awkward is that bathroom sink/vanity and kitchenett setup? What were they thinking???

    Yes! I have been doing this a few years now and took the updated College of Knowledge courses in September- you have to be up to date on the course in order to even attend the training sessions. Most fun "work" I have ever had to do! ;)

    After reading through the information page, I see the rooms are being refurbished right now? I had not heard this! Looks like it will be completed by March 22, I will be there March 18-22 - should I get a new room? Anyone have pics of what the new rooms will look like?

    I am hoping to be lucky enough to get a newly refurb'd room when we check in on Wednesday but if not I will ask if I can sneak into one to take some pictures.

    DH and I are staying at CR for the Princess Half Marathon in 3 weeks and I talked to the IPO folks since we are staying on the atrium level if the lounge would be open or not. They said that it is suppose to be open a few days before we arrive on 21 Feb and if not, we should get a call. I expressed my displeasure that if the club was not open it negates my paying extra for the club level.

    So long story short...call and ask the status and then put in a room request for a new refurbished room.
