just got back from BLT and for anyone looking at booking there here are some of our thoughts: the pool is too small and too shallow and the slide is good for younger kids but very slow and lame for older kids the lake view room we had 8142 overlooked the marina and the area that they had nightly movies so was very loud. really not worth the lake points at all although i really don't think there can be too many standard view rooms since every view had partial lake or theme park view (MK and the parking lot is the same view, the pool view is lake view and when i complained that i didn't consider the marina a lake view, i was told that all lake view rooms had partial views of something other than the lake) we were on the 11th floor and could hear the noise from the contempory's pool (which we could see) "party" every day. the water pagent kept us up until 10:45pm with very loud music. being on the 11th floor did not lessen the noise very much. if you are going to MK or Epcot, the location is great but taking the bus anywhere else is arduous (the bus to dtd stops at the poly first) really did not like that the poly was on our bus route as it really dragged the bus ride out. 15 min into our dtd bus ride and we passed right by our hotel again. dtd was a 27 min trip. coming back we were first off so i'm guessing for the parks, blt is last off. the cast members were very nice however this is the first time ever our floor requests were not honored at all. we resvd a room for 1 night for my MIL and emailed, called and asked in person to have her nearby (booked a lakeview studio since i was told that we had to have the same view to be close by so of course extra points for that lake view) and she was assigned to the 6th floor when i requested 14th floor for both of us. lucky for me francisco at online checkin got a manager who bumped her to a mk view room just to get her on the 14th floor but at the opposite end of the building the dvc lounge is cool to view the fireworks and our balcony did have a view of some of the epcot fireworks (some were too low to see) however it is just a very noisy location. we like to get to the parks early in the am so we like quiet at night. this is not a quiet location.
