From the latest AllEars Newsletter...

Every week Disney Vacation Club hosts a Welcome Home Wednesdays event at the BoardWalk's Atlantic Dance hall. The session is a combination sales pitch -- in typical low-key Disney fashion -- informational event and fun get-together for DVC members:

Thanks for posting that, we should try to get there in our Nov stay. I'm a few days behind, but just wanted to note that before we did buy into DVC, we REALLY wanted to stay in one of those cottages. Having your own personal mini-house (like Minnie mouse?) on property is just way cool. I'm sure you'll enjoy!

I still go to them each trip. I want my "free" hat and cracker jacks. I liked the time later though.

So now we'll have two bathrooms and about twice as much space, which will be nice before our WL stay. It's also a good test run to see if we like it enough to book it in the summer. I requested a balcony. Only 3 of the 14 suites have a balcony off the upstairs bedroom, so I don't expect to get one, but it would be just perfect if we did.

I've read that there is a "secret" staircase right near the cottages that leads directly to the CL lounge. Did you ever use it? Do you know how far that staircase might be from the cottages?
Did ya forget to mention this somewhere......hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Congrats KOOK I like this, a beautiful anniversary cottage and DD has her very own space... I really hope you get a balcony!!!

Staying at Boardwalk for the first time in 12 days!! My dad and I are headed down for a few days of golf and relaxation.

From looking at the maps, it appears that there is a Hess Gas station very close. Does anyone know if they sell beer? and if so, it is reasonably priced? Just looking for a slightly cheaper alternative than the $5 per beer charge at the resort.

Thanks!!

Am I in trouble? I was remiss in not posting my change to your thread. I'm headed right over there

I'm so glad you approve of the change, Jeanette

Welcome to the thread, McBane. On the first page I have a HESS link. When you click-on the link and then choose "PRODUCTS" at the bottom, there is another link to the "adult beverages" that they carry. Another way to avoid those $5 beers is by staying Club Level

I hope you have a great vacation. Looks like I'll be there a few days after you.

Yes they do sell Beer over there and it should be less expensive compared to purchasing it at the Boardwalk's Screen Door General Store.

Congratulations, GG! You need a new ticker! Maybe someone will cancel their BW View

Congrats. We have tried a few times, but just are not fans of the split stay. I'm glad you got the days you wanted and hope you get the others.

Thanks for the info!! I was positive I checked out the front page of the thread....oh well. Really looking forward to it. I've stayed at all the DVC properties on site except this one. Can't wait! Hope your vacation is great also!

Smile BWV October 2012

We have rented points and have 10 days at BWV. Renting points has been quite an experience and we believe it has gone very smoothly.We were able to make these reservations at the 11 month mark. We are also using DDP. Lots of firsts for all of us.
We, Gramps, Gramma and first timer grandson (5) are staying in a BWV studio standard view for three nights arriving October 24, 2012.
On October 27 we are moving to a 2BR Guaranteed Boardwalk View when the grandson's parents arrive to join us for 7 nights.
I understand that the 2BR is a studio and 1BR Villa and from the photos it appears that there are three balconies...do any of the balcony dividers slide away to make it a larger balcony?
Our impression is that with the Guaranteed Boardwalk View we will have a view of Crescent Lake is that correct?
Are the 2BR's on the higher floors or scattered throughout?
I have read the first page information and looked at photos...such good resources for BW first timers, previously we have stayed at The Swan and off site.
Any help appreciated from anyone.
Thanks, jo

We have mentioned several times BWI should totally give him a commission/CM discount for his reviews which have inspired many of us to book there (now if I could actually hold my reservation there )
