BLT valet parking test

Disney is currently experimenting with some modifications to parking and transportation at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  

Bay Lake Tower Valet

This week Disney started a test program to offer valet parking at Bay Lake Tower.  A small lot between Bay Lake Tower and the A-frame tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort has been reserved for use by parking attendants only.

Previously guests would have to drive to the Contemporary Tower in order to valet park their vehicle.  Luggage assistance and curbside check-in are also offered at Bay Lake Tower.   

No word on how long Disney plans to test this program before they consider making it permanent.  

Additionally, plans are being considered to alter the bus routes for Disney's Magical Express to include a drop-off at Bay Lake Tower.  The current DME drop-off point for guests staying in the Disney Vacation Club villas is outside the main entrance of the Contemporary Tower.

The parking log thing doesn't really affect me at all but if they made BLT have its own exclusive buses that would be absolutely awesome. I mean honestly I don't feel like it's too crazy sharing with Contemporary but we're always there in the offseason though. I wonder if the BLT buses would also pick up at the Bungalows and VGF? Like sort of a DVC route? Also I wonder if you'd have to prove you were staying at one of those resorts as well if they did do a DVC route?

Since we are only talking about a Magical Express bus stopping at BLT, then I assume it will only accept guests staying at BLT.

We haven't used DME, but I thought they scanned your Magicband to get on the bus. That would show if you are staying at a resort.

I never thought of DME adding an all DVC resort stop. But only VGF and BLT have check in desks. PVB guests has to use the main lobby at the Poly, so why separate that one from the regular Poly run?

Well, when you arrive from outside the US you do not get your magic bands until you arrive at the resort,
so I hope that the scanning is not mandatory to get on the bus :-)

It is not.
A few years ago, my wife accidentally packed our magic bands in our luggage so we didn't have them when we showed up for the MDE ride. The CM just looked us up on the computer and checked our licenses to make sure we were who we said we were.
