Thanks so much!!
We are staying at Bay Lake Tower June 4th-10th in a one bedroom villa. We rented points for the first time, and we are very excited!!
I’m sure my questions have been asked and answered many times in this thread; I hope you’ll forgive me for not reading all 276 pages.
We have a 2 bedroom villa booked directly through Disney at BLT. Do I have remind anybody we’re paying on cash and get daily housekeeping (we do, right?)? And if so, who would that be?
Also, how do I tell in my reservation if we’re in a dedicated or lock off? Do I need to call to make sure?
This is our first trip to WDW so I thank you in advance for your help!
You shouldn't have to remind anyone that you are paying on cash and therefore get daily housekeeping.
Now, will you get the daily housekeeping...that is anyone's guess If you don't get it, call housekeeping or go to the front desk
Believe I read in the dvc magazine that trash pick up and daily housekeeping would be done at BLT starting in 2018. Did anybody else read this in the disney files magazine?
We are staying June 9-16!!
Have Garden View room for upcoming stay. Anyone know if there are rooms that face the water with a view of Electric Water Pageant? Also, where can I view fireworks from the resort without having a dinner reservation? We're ok with just standing on a balcony or at a window somewhere random.
This is not what it said. It said they would be picking up trash daily (as part of their surveillance program). No daily housekeeping, no bed making, no dish washing, no clean towels, no replenishment of amenities unless it is your actual service day (Day Four, Day Eight, etc). If you want daily housekeeping (and are staying on a DVC reservation), you can pay extra for that service.
It wasn't in Disney Files, it was at the annual member meeting in December.
Was anyone at the Contemporary for New Years Eve and watched from their room? Did their TV have music at midnight?
Holla! Just made our reservation to head home to BLT December 8-15th! Hot darn I love Bay Lake Tower and the CR. I was hoping to snag a value standard view studio like we did in 2015 for this time frame but I accidentally forgot today was our 11 month window and it was lunch time before I realized I hadn't logged on a made our reservation and by then only part of our desired days were available. So we got a lake view studio. A few more points needed but worth it. Can't wait to begin the planning!
Some rooms do face the water, but not at a great angle to see the EWP. Its easily viewed from the beach however. And you can watch the fireworks from the 4th floor observation deck. Enjoy!
Finally found where I had read this... came in an email we received from dvc on 22Dec.
• Your in-room experience has never been more important to us. That's why we will begin removing trash from your rooms at Disney Vacation Club resorts on a daily basis in addition to regular housekeeping visits. The daily service begins December 22, 2017, at five resort properties (Bay Lake Tower, Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian, Disney's Grand Californian and Aulani). The service extends to all other Disney Vacation Club resorts on January 7, 2018.
@AngiTN - did you end up having fireworks music on your night? I think you might have posted about this previously on another thread.
She said it wasn't on for the earlier ones and wasn't in the room for the late one. I was wondering if someone else had a different experience, maybe TV glitching?
Ahh, OK, my bad. Sorry I can’t help.
I had booked a room at GF SugarLoaf under a pin code discount for May. While I was at AKL this past week, I was able to “rebook” that reservation to Contemporary Atrium CL with a bounce back and even ended up saving a couple hundred dollars! Our 3 night stay last October just wasn’t long enough. Hurry up Spring!
Just booked for October at BLT. We are booked in a lake view studio, but I was wondering if any of the "lake view" studios have a partial park view? If so, what requests would I make in hopes of getting one?
Yes! Request north tower, even number, outer villa and you could get a partial lake, partial MK view. We always request this when we visit and have been extremely lucky.(we usually book a 1bd)the charts above might help you out.
We just upgraded our theme park view to atrium club level for our stay 9/6 to 9/17 2018. We are hoping to take advantage of the Theme Park Extra promo. If not, still excited for our first CL stay!
My friend is graciously bringing me on a trip in March & I just found out we are staying in a theme park view room at the Contemporary! I am so excited- I've never stayed in a theme park view room and it's gonna be SO MAGICAL!! Am I right to be this excited, for those of you who have done it?
