Bay Lake Tower refurb scheduled

Numerous Disney Vacation Club resorts have renovation projects planned for 2016.  A start date has now been revealed for one of those ventures.  

BLT E026

AllEars.net is reporting that the refurbishment of Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort will run from April 2 to October 14, 2016.  This project is deemed a "soft goods" refurbishment.  Refreshed items typically include linens, wall coverings, floor coverings and upholstry.

Crews typically take steps to minimize the impact on guests while renovating rooms.  Expect rooms to be updated in small blocks, one floor at a time, with sections being renovated closed-off to guests.

In other Bay Lake Tower news, the Bay Cove Pool is in the early stages of a winter renovation which runs until March 18, 2016.  

Refurbishment dates are estimates only.  Schedules may be revised or project deadlines extended if necessary.

We are at Bay Lake Tower in June. Maybe at least one of the two rooms we have reserved will be a remodeled room. :fingerscrossed:

Except that the photo of a one bedroom. Isn't the black console only in the studio? I appears DVC is going with sheers with designs on them on top of plain black out curtains. That seems to be the new standard in hotels lately. I am definitely doing the happy dance for our stays at BLT.

It looks to me like the same white console is being used in the one bedroom again. Here is a photo from a few years ago.

I hope they keep the black console and not add the murphy bed in the studio at BLT as that room is crowded enough without adding a fifth person to the mix.

While I know the BCV refurb was delayed from last year, it is sorta funny that all of this refurb work is occurring during the 25th anniversary of DVC. Maybe that is the best way to get rooms booked during a refurb. :grin:
