We are going down to BLT next Sat 1-9-10 and staying in a 3 bedroom grand villa (we are not loaded we have saved, banked and borrowed our 160 points) to have a vacation of a lifetime. We are arriving at Orlando at 130 pm and will probably be at BLT at about 3pm.
Regular booking at BLT the bay lake view is $1755-night-and through alot of searching have seen on the regular accomodations site that the Magic Kingdom View $1635 -night is actually a cheaper priced room for the time we are going.
We are using 424 points compared to 516 for the Magic Kingdom view.
My questions are:
1. Is there any way of getting the Magic Kingdom View 3BRGV at the time of check in ?
2. Will I be hurting my chances if I do online check-in ?
3. We have heard from the DVC member services that no one books the 3 bedroom GV's, can I ask at the contemporary check in to upgrade us ?
4. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I am going crazy it is one week away!!!! I can't wait to get there it has been two years and feels like 10 .
