A new BWI video has been posted by the DIS. It includes the resort's interior, grounds, a room, shops and the BW:

We are here now. First time at the BW. We are at BWV in a studio and are on the second floor with a village green view. We had requested near the elevators and just a few rooms down so very close and convienient as my daughter is in a wheelchair so stairs are out. We have a studio with the daybed in it (not sure if they all do) and can partially see the boardwalk from our balcony. We walked to DHS yesterday. It is a pleasant walk and not too far at all. Love the convenience. My daughter also really enjoyed watching the performers on the boardwalk last evening, almost as much as I enjoyed my funnel cake

We were there a month ago and requested High floor, near elevator. We had room 5041. Great view, about 1/3rd of the way down the hall (which is good, the end of the hall is a far walk), and overall liked the room. I posted a bunch of view pics if you go back a bit (pages 131-132). Enjoy!!

Thanks for posting Kook! The video was eerily quiet until the music kicked in for the second half.

Sounds nice, enjoy the trip, post some pics! Are they getting married at the BW or another area?

Glad you got a good room! Sounds perfect.

Thanks, I'll have to check out the pictures. I tried to call last night to add a request of high floor on our reservation but the hold time was like 10 minutes so I figured I would try today.

PSAC those pictures are great and I'm even more excited now, if that's even possible.

What's a village green view? We have requested that as advised, but I'm not sure what that means. TY.

It looks out onto the grassy area between the BWI and BWV and the boat dock. It's over the Weyland store.

Today is our 50 day mark! I am so excited....we have never stayed at an Epcot resort before! We have a 1 BR Standard View for 7 nights (then a Kidani 1 BR Savannah view for 2 nights). I am not sure that I want to make a room request, but I'm not convinced I want to be close to the elevators. Does requesting "far from elevators" get us much closer to DHS? We plan to walk to both Epcot and DHS as much as possible and stairs are fine with us. (Long hallways don't bother us...we actually liked it at Kidani)

We are having a fantastic time! The best birthday ever with my grandchildren. The cast in the lounge has been as wonderful as always and the kids are so comfortable with all of them. Shared my birthday cake with track and field Olympians, gold and silver medal winners, met Track and Field great, Dan O'Brien. The weather has been perfect.
Tonight is the College Football awards show at the Atlantic Dance Hall. The men in my family are really looking forward to that.
