    You know its gotta be true if it comes from Magical Express, where all the bus drivers are from... Better get out of the South wing before the wrecking ball shows up.

    Huh??? It only says the ones that are current, so what makes that sign mean there is yet another resort coming?

    Towers is plural instead of Bay Lake Tower.

    When we left BLT this past Monday, there was only one (1) Tower.

    I don't see it as a joke. They knocked down the north wing to build BLT why not do the same with the south wing. If you look at the picture you can see that the 2 towers would be the same distance to CR. I stayed at BLT in FEBRUARY. My view was the south garden wing. I would think everytime I looked at it, how old and outdated it seemed.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised...the South Wing looks "out of place" and "wrong" now. I really wouldn't be surprised if that hadn't been the plan all along. However, I'd look for more clues than a sign. lol Besides...after construction, the aerial view would look more like a Mickey hat. :cloud9:

    Going past the South Garden wing on the ferry, it always looked like a sad, gloomy housing project to me. I don't anticipate us buying points at BLT, but I'd be happy to see a second tower just to get rid of that eyesore!

    Of course a major draw to BLT is the Magic Kingdom views. A south tower would be unable to provide such a vista, thus they would not be able to charge a point premium for those rooms. Such a tower may be less economically feasible.

    After they started BLT I always thought a 2nd tower would be down the line just for balance of the area. So it this happens I thought so already

    What if they build a 2nd tower It might not be all DVC.

    Now if the tear down the CR and put a 3rd tower up in its place thats your Mickey Hat

    I could also forsee problems with members who bought at the North tower, just to get the 11 month booking window (like I did). They build another tower, have it be the same resort, and then there would be twice as many members be eligible to book the MK views at 11 months out. This would probably annoy a lot of current BLT members.

    Of course, the more likely answer is someone at the sign shop screwed up.

    I noticed that on our trip "home" last month, but forgot to post it. I had the same exact thought! :)

    Do you really think DVD/Disney would care if adding another tower makes it more difficult for owners to book a MK room? There job is to build resorts, sell them out, and keep them full. They really don't care whose in what room. Besides, once you close on DVC there isn't much you can do about it except sell your contract, and DVD/Disney dosen't care who owns the contract.

    Yes. This is one of the signs that directs people to go into the correct lineup at Magical Express. Still only 1 tower out there as of yesterday.

    Time will tell.

    Many people call it Bay Lake Towers so it's possible that it was a simple mistake.

    We had two guides in December tell us that Disney drilled some test pylons after BLT opened and results showed the ground at the Wing was not stable enough to hold the weight required for the current Bay Lake Tower.

    It may be guides just spreading rumors, but it's true that Disney will have to run tests on the ground there before they would know if they could build there or not. Just because a 3 story building is there, doesn't mean it can hold a 16 story building.

    If they build another towel, THAT would be a big eyesore!! Three concrete blocks buildings side by side??? Sure look like govement housing project! :rotfl:
    if you people want to add-on more BLT points, why don't you just call your guide and buy them right now?? Why do you need them to build another tower?? It is not like they sold out of all the points!?!?! :confused3

    We will just have to wait and see. IMHO I think it is a good posibility they may do something like that.

    I just think it is extremly funny to see comments here about how the South Wing looks like an eyesore after ALL the posts about how a new 16 story tower would look sooo... out of place and would look sooo.... ugly and be such a terrible eyesore and not match with the "A" Frame building ......
