    We had a fantastic stay at BLT in June (Thanks again to all the CR/BLT experts for the super-helpful advice!), and at the time, the CMs at the Community Hall were giving away free Teen Beach Movie masks. My dd will be having a Teen Beach Movie themed birthday party in a few weeks, and I was wondering if anyone knows where where we can get 6 or 7 of these masks. Does anyone happen to know where I can find the phone number or email address for the BLT Community Hall?

    I spoke to someone at CR today. They are still saying it will take a few months to replace the refrigerators. I am really not happy about this. :(

    The BLT phone number is still listed as the CR's phone number (407-824-1000), which is actually a call center somewhere else in FL. But, they might still be able to help you contact the BLT Community Hall.

    Thank you for posting. Just curious, did you speak to the call center? If so, they might not have the most up to date information and may only have the estimate that all TAs were given that estimated up to 4 months to complete all resorts.

    I had a direct contact at WL who reported that they were done replacing recalled fridges there last week. But, it's possible CR has many more recalled fridges than WL had and will take longer.

    I think the new CA Grill will be special to you, just as it was for your reception. I wish it was going to be open in early August, but it looks like we'll miss the grand re-opening by a few weeks. I'm looking forwarding to reading reviews!

    Hi KOOK :wave:. Thanks for the link.....those desserts look yummy :goodvibes. I have our ADRs set for December, but may change one of them to CG when they open up reservations again. We've never eaten there, but it's one I want to try and it would be convenient when we stay at the CR ;).

    How exciting! We didn't get any, presumably because we aren't doing ME:confused3

    :wave:
    CA Grill is a must-do every trip, so this will be the first time we won't be able to eat there:worried:. You will love it and make sure you time it so you'll be there during Wishes and ask for a MK window seat upon arrival;)

    I'm sorry CG will still be closed during your trip :(. Our December 2010 trip was the first time we tried any of the signatures and we loved them (Artist Point and Yachtsman). We have an ADR for Narcoossee's this December and I might try to squeeze in CG if I can get an ADR. I would love a MK window seat :wizard:.

    I am a newbie and soooo confused looking at room charts. I booked a stay for a 1 bedroom park view but have noticed alot of people saying they are not happy with some of the rooms for a theme park view. I am thinking I want to see some of the lake also. So do I ask for a outer room on the curve for this type of view? Is this a good view for fireworks? Do I ask for a even numbered room on the North end? I don't want to look at the contemporary and the is the south curve, right? HELP!

    When I asked if she was at the actual hotel she replied that she was, though I pulled the phone number from the web, so who really knows. :confused3
    Do you have the confirmed front desk number? If you are allowed to share, I would love it. Or if you have a moment, might you be able to call? Trying to figure out our garden grocer order. Thanks so much!

    I have a question similar to KathySmallwood. We're in a 2 bedroom lakeview, and am unsure about room requests. How far in advance should requests be made? I know the are just requests, so am not sure if the timing truly matters? Our trip isn't until May '14.

    We've never stayed at BLT so I can't answer your questions, but hopefully someone familiar with BLT will be able to offer some suggestions for you :).

    You can make room requests at any time. Rooms don't get assigned until a few days prior to your stay, so IMO, making requests a year in advance isn't really any different than making them a month in advance. With that said, I usually make requests when I make the reservation, that way I don't forget to do it ;).

    We were there Oct 12 and requested a 1BR on the outside curve. Had a view of the lake and fireworks...super nice not to leave the room to watch the fireworks !
