We just got back from another awesome vacation. The 4 night cruise followed by 3 nights at BLT lake view. Here are my thoughts. I have to confess they differ slightly from my DH he was ready to do an addon right then and there he was so in love Pros: Location:Obviously the biggest plus. Walking to MK is amazing. I also liked easy access to all the other resorts on Bay Lake and the boat over to WL. We had a 5th floor lake view room. The 5th floor is where the pedestrian bridge. Pure luck but very handy. Decor: Stunning. Loved the artwork, the colours, the comfy bed. I actually liked the galley kitchen/bathroom area. (I have heard some Disers complain) There is tonnes of storage in the kitchen and bathroom area. Loved all the dark wood with the pale blue, just stunning. Top of the World: Gorgeous, friendly staff, yummy drinks and awesome view of the fireworks. Contempo Cafe: Nice quick serve options, good choices and an easy walk via the bridge. Laundry: right off the lobby and tonnes of machines Parking: Lots of parking and close. Never had trouble finding a space. Cons: Theming: or lack thereof in my Opinion, like I said before the hotel is stunning but it could be anywhere, Miami, NYC etc. I just wasn't hit over the head with the theming that I love at AKL or VWL. Also there is no plush lobby The Lock down: You have to use your room key to get anywhere, even to open the main doors. Also to access the pool, and coming back from the Contemporary you need it to get onto the walkway. DH called this "exclusive" I found it really annoying and like it was a fortress. Because of this they have guides stationed in the lobby all day long. You can't just come in and take a look around. You will be watched. Just left a bad taste in my mouth. Pool: this is really a neutral, I liked the zero entry, DS liked the water sprayers but the splash pad was closed. I thought the neon Mickey's were super cheesy on the pool slide at night. Points: We are spoiled by off season and it was pretty hard to stomach 77 points for 3 nights in a lake view in March. In Summary: we will definitely stay there again, my pros outweighed the cons for sure. The hotel is gorgeous but because of the high points only once in a while. I just missed that warm cozy feeling of my home resort. And like I said DH would have posted a different review, he got mad when I spoke ill of his new beloved BLT. We were in 7509 a studio lock off March 4-7. Would be happy to answer any questions.
