Would be less than 1 star if I could! Literally staying at BLT as a hotel guest (not Disney club) right now and the service is terrible. The front desk takes at least 10 minutes at answer the phone at all times and no requests have been managed properly and room not even cleaned. When we finally got through they understood why we were upset but said it is mostly a vacation club property which is why they don’t have as many people available. I am not in the club and if I was I would expect someone to answer the phone. Would never join the club if this is how they treat you as a hotel guest. I have stayed at all types of hotels/resorts and seriously never had worse service. I couldn’t even wait to write this review. Disgusted for what they have the nerve to charge.

"Amazing views and super convenient for MK visit "

We stayed two nights at BLT before a Disney cruise and cannot say enough great things about our stay. We were in a theme park view studio and the view was amazing. I loved watching the monorail go by from our balcony. The walk to Magic Kingdom was worth the cost - quick walk there and first stop on the monorail back after MK. The room was plenty spacious for our family of four. Husband and I in the queen bed, 7 yo in pull out sofa and 2 yo in the pack n play which is available in the closet. We ended up putting the pack n play in the kitchen because my 2 yo wanted to talk all night and needed his own space. We would stop at the Contempo Café when we got off the monorail for ice cream snacks on the way back to our room. Definitely recommend BLT and can’t wait to visit again.

"Great room except for washer/dryer"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We stayed on the 8th floor in room 8126. It was a one bedroom villa. We could watch the fireworks from the window or out on the balcony. The room was great with all the amenities. It was my wife’s favorite place of all the Disney resorts that we have stayed over the years. I actually prefer Beach Club villas, because of the proximity to EPCOT. Our one major complaint is that you pay all this extra money for a washer and dryer, but our dryer did not do anything more than warm our clothes. We called maintenance, but they did not seem to have done anything. We had to air dry all our clothes the next couple days when we were staying at Universal. My only other complaint is that the transportation to the parks is very inconsistent. There were times that we waited only a few minutes, but there were times when we waited more than 30 minutes. One day it took us over an hour to get to animal kingdom.

We had a two room villa on the 9th floor of Bay Lake. It was so nice. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was great to have. Plenty of room for everyone , as my partner and I shared with my parents. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

"Great view of Magic Kingdom"

Room 8230 between 1/31/18 - 2/9/18. Great view of fireworks, especially from roof top bar (if DVC member) and from the two bed bedroom balcony. The master balcony has a pretty good view. We ordered a crib and a pack-n-play but received two pack-n-plays. They are on first come basis, so check in early if you require a crib. We arrived at 4pm and had to call down for the pack-n-play and crib (which we did not get). The Contemporary Café in the Contemporary was a hidden gem, pretty good food for the price. Kids loved it. Our room was an accessible room, it had a walk in shower and tub with jets in the Master suite, a pull out chair and a pull out couch, and bath in the living area and then a 2 bed bedroom with a bath. Overall a great place to stay. Only real bump in our stay was the crib, which we overcame with the pack-n-play. We did not use the pools (too cold, in the 60s and 70s) but there is a kids pool with a slide and a hot tub.
