I think what you have booked now .... Poly and GF is perfect for you. It's really what you wanted all along.

Maybe an Epcot resort in Jan???

Booked a Studio (2 studios actually my Sil & Bil are coming with us) for our fifth anniversary this August Dh and I were married at Disney and our reception was at the BWI. We stayed at the BWI during our wedding before heading to our honeymoon so this is a special vacation. Plus it is my Sil & Bil 10th anniversary as well!

Very excited.

So happy you were able to book a studio, with a little luck maybe a BW view will open up but if not you are still staying at the BoardWalk

We were there last year the week after they reopened the feature pool. Wow, that water was cold.

The 1BR part should be one long balcony between the two entrances, that's what we had. The studio balcony will be separate, and generally not a divider, like physically separate with some distance between. You can actually see/talk/etc., from balcony to balcony, they aren't "private" like cruise balconies.

Are the 2BR's on the higher floors or scattered throughout?
As CR said, absolutely yes to the first question, and to the second, they are scattered, so you might want to request a higher floor if that's your desire, though we requested that and got 2nd floor, so the requests obviously aren't always honored.

Enjoy, you'll love it!

View across the balconies on the Villas side (Rm 2001, 1BR villa, from the living room side, those two chairs are in front of the bedroom doors to the balcony. The balcony had four chairs in total.)

How late is Leaping Libations open?

In May there will be 10 adults staying at the BWV for the first time. We are so excited. We will be looking for a place to gather after we leave the parks for the day. How late is Leaping Libations open? How late is ESPN and Jelly rolls open? Any other suggestions?

In my experience, Leaping Libations closes pretty early. ESPN and Jelly Rolls I believe, are open until 2. At least 1am.

Leaping Libations is open from 11 - 6:30pm.

ESPN is open 11:30 - 1am.

The doors open to Jellyrolls at 7 and the piano playing starts at 8. They're open until 1:45am.

Kimonos is a sushi bar at the Swan that's open very late. It may even close around the same time as ESPN and Jellyrolls.

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?
YAY i eagerly await your very much valued opinion on these "Little Gems" When is it you are staying in one?

This thread is amazing & there is nothing like hearing from people who plenty of Disney experience! This is my first time staying at the BW Villas, so a few quick questions!

1-About how long does it take to get to Epcot (via International Gateway) & Hollywood Studios using the boat?

2-Can you see Illuminations from anywhere around the BWV?

3-I'm staying in a DVC studio room with a garden/pool view. Is there any requests regarding room #'s or floors or anything that I should try for!

Thanks!!
