Thanks for the link. I'll have to put that up on the first page.

I hope you have a great vacation. Will you be able to check in with us from time to time?

I am really surprised to read this. We were there for 9 days, including your dates and went to FF on our first night. It's become a first night tradition for us. It was so good we went back on another night. They have been one of the most consistently good signature restaurants, in our opinion, for the past 5 years. Hopefully if you ever try it again you'll enjoy it!

Thank you for the beautiful photos! The new panoramic function on the iPhone5 is great or did you use something else?

Starbucks will replace Fountainview Ice Cream in Epcot:

This location will be closed March 2013 through Mid-Summer 2013 to convert to a Starbucks location. The restaurant and cast member costumes will be themed to fit in with the futuristic atmosphere of Epcot. Offerings will include Starbucks beverages, artisan breakfast sandwiches and a selection of baked goods, including muffins, scones and specialty treats.

Wth are they thinking?? Can't they just serve Starbucks coffee without taking out the Main Street Bakery and Fountainview Cafe? I cannot believe Walt would approve. Stupid!!!

Does anyone know specifically which BWI water view rooms have the recessed--and thus restricted view--balconies? I was very disappointed with my first BWI stay in Sept due to this issue. I'm giving it another try for DBF's sake on an upcoming trip, but would like to have a balcony that I can actually see the Boardwalk from. Thanks.

Check In Parking?

We are staying at the BWI for 4 days before we embark on the Disney Fantasy. My question is about check in parking. We stayed at one of the value resorts last year and when we pulled up to the main entrance, we were told if we were not going to have them take our bags to the room or valet park, we had to park in the "check in parking" area and then drive around to our room. Does the BWI make you do this as well? I was hoping to avoid that since this is a deluxe resort. Thanks!

You can either have Bell Services remove your luggage from your vehicle and take it to your room or you can take it yourself. But you cannot park at check in. You have to either stop and unload and then park your car with someone standing by your stuff or park and then haul the stuff from your car to the room. There is no "drive around to your room" at the BW. Everyone enters at the same area.
