    Excited for our first stay at BLT this summer. We've booked a one bedroom lake view for 5 nights. We'd rather be higher up. Does anyone have a recommendation for what room or section we should request? Also, are there any suggestions for stuff we should bring. I know we'll need groceries and electric cords. Does the room come with mini toiletries. This is our first stay in a villa, so any pointers will be much appreciated! Thanks!

    I too am going this august and it is our first DVC stay at BLT since we bought into DVC. We are poly "natives" and it is a big step from the two story-palm tree haven across the lake....of course a request is a request, however I don't know what to ask for. We are booked 7 nights -lake view-one bedroom studio. Do I ask for high up or down? Close to the bridge?
    I would love to see the monorail and of course anything pleasing!! But from high up, not parking lot level...but is that mostly standard? So confused....I know every angle of the poly and room types but this is so new....but exciting!!! :scared:

    Thanks for any help!!:goodvibes

    OK, here are a few pictures from our theme park view studio. We were there at the beginning of the month and it was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better view! We were in room 8218 (12th floor).

    A random shot of the room...

    If you have a lake view you have 3 options.
    - The inside of the C which will give you a view of the pool and Bay Lake
    - north side outer C. It's is the top of the C facing the Mk. Gives you views of Mk and fireworks, some monorail and some lake
    - south side outer C. It's faces the CR. has some monorail, CR and some lake.

    We typically stay MK view but last trip had lake view. We ended up on the north side of the outer C. We were able to see the Mk and fireworks. Great view for only lake view pts.

    We always ask for high floor. I would rare be high up then face any one direction.

    Love BLT. Best resort!!!!!

    Crazy question.... In the one bedroom villa, does the commode area in the master bath have a door to close it off from the rest of the bathroom? I like privacy....

    We usually stay at BWV, but may try BLT next time. My son is 21 and sharing a bathroom with 3 of us can be a challenge. 2 bathrooms like we had at AKV but with a better location might be cool. A commode door in the master would be even better (why all the resorts don't have this is beyond me!).

    There is a door separating the toilet and the shower from the double vanity and the bathtub. So, if you're showering and someone needs to use the toilet in the master bath, neither of you will have privacy (but if someone is just using the sink, you will). That's why the second bathroom is great. Let me ask you this since you said you normally stay at BWV and that's where we're staying in June . . . I know there is only one bathroom in the 1 BR, but what's the shower/toilet situation like there?

    Thanks! With the 2nd bathroom, it sounds manageable. I wonder why it wasn't set up like AKV (awesome resort and rooms- poor location).

    BWV- our favorite location. Bathroom has no privacy though between shower and toilet. Ugh... There is another sink and the big tub closed off though.

    This was my awesome (for a) standard studio view room from I think 7240 (or 38).

    I know it's kind of hard to tell here, but we could totally see the castle and fireworks. I was super happy with this room.
