"Just returned from 6 night stay BLT, Room 8144. I was pleasantly surprised how large this 2 BR unit was I am not a fan of contemporary decor, I found the BLT decor fresh and crisp. Loved the pictures over the couch and beds. I had no problem with "lack of themeing". Carpet in hallways is full of Hidden Mickeys, pictures in halls and room were all Disney themes. View was great. End unit closest to Contemporary Hotel so we could see Bay Lake and watch all the boats come and go. Also overlooked their pool and could see all the major attraction, DTD Characters in Flight, Epcot Ball, TOT and Mickeys Hat and EE and the Tree of life. Amazing how far away everything is. I would not want to pay extra to see Cinderella Castle b/c really you are looking at the BLT parking lot." cindynagel (www.allears.net)
"We stayed here June 22-29th and loved it!! We had a lake view and it was very nice. We were on the 11th floor and looked out onto the pool and the lake from the middle of the building. Last time, April 2010, our lake view included the Magic Kingdom. Both were great!
No problem at all with check in and we had 3 different arrival dates for different members of our party. Front desk helped with car rental for my son and transport to emergency care for hubby, when he came down with swimmers ear. Everyone that hepled us was professional and knowledgeable.
We had a two bedroom lockoff and it was perfect for the group we had. The main bedroom is very spacious as is the bathroom. We used garden grocer for the first time and that worked out very well. The kitchen and living area have plenty of space, though I'm not a fan of the modern decor, it was tasteful and worked well for us. Love the pull out chair, one more body!! The second bedroom was a studio and my boys loved having their own room, fridge microwave and all!!
We rented boats one day and the kids had a blast. Only down side is the size of the pool, the zero gravity walkin takes up half the swimming area, but we went to the Contempary pool a few times and that was fine. The location to the MK is great. We let my older kids go late night and felt ok with it (cell phones help too). All in all, we really enjoyed this resort." jbmcdm (www.allears.net)
"I recently stayed at BLT with my adult daughter 5/4/11 thru 5/10/11. This was our first stay at BLT and fell in love with the location to MK and close access to the Monorail. We loved the grounds, including the pool area and having access to the Contemporary amenities. The cast members were very pleasant and could not do enough for me when my daughter had the stomach flu. Our room was very quiet and dark, so we tended to sleep in later in the morning. However, our room seemed very worn for being a newer resort. The handle was falling off the closet and the toliet tissue holder was falling off as well. I felt that the rooms were a bit smaller than other DVC resorts we have stayed at. Other than these minor issues, I would definitely stay at BLT again!" JanSpagnoli (www.allears.net)
