Arcade near the clown pool, surreys to rent outside on the Boardwalk, take the very short walk around the lake to the marina which has assorted boats and bikes to rent.

And Fantasia mini-golf is a very short walk away, across from Swan/Dolphin.

We're back from the Fantasy and back at the Boardwalk. Better room this time, 5011. Live the long balcony instead of the two separate ones in 4041 last week. And yes, we will be running the glasses through the dishwasher ;-)

transportation question

Are there separate buses for the Boardwalk Inn and just the Boardwalk area? My reason is I was wondering about what bus we would get leaving a resort after late dinner reservation if all the parks are closed. I have late ressies for Ohana and Cali Grill for nights that MK closes at 7pm. The rule is no bus between resorts so how will we get back to BI? Thanks in advance!

They share the same bus stop. It's out the front (from the lobby) and to the left towards the convention center

You will have to use the Downtown Disney buses if the parks close before you head back. The only way to get from resort to resort after park close is to switch buses at DD.

Except for the Downtown Disney switch, which will take forever, your best bet is a taxi. Will be about $15-20 and take 15-20 minutes instead of about 60-90 mins with the DD switch. Ps-- does MK close at 7 for a special party, like the Halloween or Xmas ones? If so, the MK busses will still run to service the party.
Personally we still find taxis easier.

BWV October 24- November 3 2012

we are in count down mode...DIL has question about the coffee maker in 2BR villa...what kind is it so she can bring her own stuff.
Garden Grocer...ordering some items...we have 2 separate reservations so will be moving from a standard room to the 2BR Villa on Saturday October 27 2012.
When we order the groceries for Saturday morning delivery do we need to be present or will the staff store these itmes for us and then move them to our newly assigned room.
We actually want to head over to MK after we get up and not sure how this all works when moving rooms...some nerves associated with all of this as first timers in BWV.
all help appreciated, jo

How late are the reservations? The buses run considerably later than the actual park closing.

The coffee makers are traditional Mr. Coffee's, nothing fancy.

Basket type (flat bottom) filters, not the cone type.

Just confirming with a photo what Pete and Isyorke reported...CaliforniaDreaming posted a photo of the two-bedroom coffee maker a couple of pages back (and I also have it on the first page of the thread). Have a wonderful vacation!
