    We are AKV owners and will be staying at BLT in a standard view studio during our upcoming trip in March. I have a couple questions...

    1. What should I request for a room?
    2. We have never used Magic Express (always drive) but will be this time. How long will it take to get from the airport to BLT? Also, how early do we need to plan to leave to go back to the airport?

    Any help would be great. We love AKV but can't wait for the convenience of BLT.

    Magical Express will give you a pick up time ---approx 3 hours prior to your flight. I think they call/leave a message the day before check out(maybe two days?)

    Also how long it takes to get to the hotel will depend--I think it would depend which resorts they have to stop at to drop off the other passengers. Its usually been under 1 hour for me.

    Take a look at work2play's thread on BLT's rooms and views (see http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2257082). There are lots of posts from BLT guests showing their rooms and views, and work2play has maps showing the location of rooms by views. The thread should give you an idea of what to request if you want a pool view, lake view, MK view, etc. Hope this helps!

    We just went in December. We landed around 9:50 pm. By the time we made it on to ME, and drove to the resort, it was around 12:10 pm. We had to stop at Poly, GF, and WL before heading to BLT.

    We were given a 3 hour time frame to catch ME. We ended up getting back from the parks a little early and they let us on to the ME bus 3 1/2 hours before our flight.

    It was a good thing as it took us awhile to get there and through security. We got to the gate with only 50 minutes before our flight. Had we taken the original shuttle, I think it would have been tight.

    Of course, our flight got delayed for 3 hours so in the end, it didn't matter but I liked the convenience of it all.

    Have a great trip!
