    Well put! Though we don't own there, we do enjoy BLT quite a bit. As you say, the decor isn't my favorite, although we do appreciate the sleek, clean lines which rather fit the overall "theme" of CR. Convenience is a huge factor when we stay there. We love walking to MK, being able to hop on the monorail, and, of course, the convenience of the in-resort restaurants and shopping. Love the extra bathrooms, too!

    We’ll be there in 4 weeks!!

    A couple questions: are there shampoo/conditioner dispensers installed in the studio bathrooms here? Trying to plan for toiletries.

    Also: is there any benefit to online check in? We have 2 studios for 2 parties traveling together.

    We are all really disappointed about the conversion of the contemporary arcade, but still getting excited for the trip.

    I love online checkin because I can go directly to my room. For some reason, stopping at the checkin desk seems to take forever!

    We could not enter from the outside to the stairs. Also some of the stairs bring you outside to unusual out of the way places.

    I think they are all fun for different reasons. I love BLT for the walk to MK and being on the monorail. I love BCV and BWV for the board walks area and walking to two parks. I also like SSR & OKW for proximity to DS. So it guess it depends on what you’re looking to do for fun. We’re staying at PVB in 10 days, I love its theming, the monorail to MK or just walk around the corner and hop onto EPCOT monorail. The food at PVB is great too and we love the pool. My kids also love renting the little boats and going out on the water. We also love BRV/CCV for being outside and taking walks, we love geyser point for food and drinks. It’s never an easy choice but that’s the joy of owning DVC, you know there will be a next time. Have fun!!

    I’m glad someone resurrected this old thread. Seems like other resorts get lots of love and BLT doesn’t on these boards. We love BLT and will be spending July 4th there this year. It’s also where we own the bulk of our vacation points.

    BLT is THE BEST. Come on -- walkable to MK!?!? People don't know what they're missing, which suits me just fine. :)

    I’m glad to see the BLT love. I have been a proud owner since it opened in 2009. Recently bought a resale to add on to my existing points. We used to get by on booking one bedrooms but now that there are more little ones in the family we need the extra space. I know BLT gets a bad rap for theming, but when you need to push a toddler back to the resort after a day at the magic kingdom you thank your lucky stars it’s so close. Not to mention, no matter your age, everyone is happy when it’s a short walk rather than the long lines to get on some type of transportation to leave the park.

    Also, top of the world lounge is amazing.

    We stayed at BLT last February. We really enjoyed it. Unlike previous times, we had a room on the first floor so we had a little patio facing the plaza in back of the Contemporary Hotel. It was a great location even if we couldn’t see the MK.

    We are at BLT now. Love it as always. This time we have the best view we have ever received—on the 11th Floor, facing directly at the castle. Clear view of the castle, part of new Fantasyland, etc. and great fireworks view.

    There is a note from the manager stating that there will be exterior painting work and to be careful about leaving personal items on the balconies. I see no evidence of such work, nor mention of it here, but we arrived on Saturday and today is Sunday. Also it has been pouring off and on today so painting would have been impossible.

    We own all of our DVC points at BLT. We bought our first points in 2012 (resale) and bought another resale in 2017. I couldn’t imagine wanting to own anywhere else. I actually love the theme and the location and views are the best in WDW!

    You can usually find us at BLT on July 3, and December 30 when you have to stay at BLT TO SEE MK fireworks from TOTWL! I like BLT a lot, but not the pool, I don’t think it’s adequate for the size of the resort. We usually go to a water park when we stay at BLT.

    We own a 100 point contract there, and they all are used at BLT. We bought resale, and I think they are the only points we have that have restrictions. We paid $100 a point maybe, and I worried we overpaid.:rotfl2:
