As mentioned earlier, they've either provided alternate pool access or a temporary slide.

My only concern is hearing DVC members mentioning they've confirmed that they will have SAB access which may be an exclusive temporary addition to their DVC pool hopping privileges, not the regular BWI guests.

Hopefully someone will report back the first week of January to confirm how they're handling it.
Trust me, there is exactly zero chance of Disney offering that to guests on DVC points and not to people staying on cash reservations. Typically, the cash reservations get preferential treatment. But I would guess what is offered to one group, will be offered to the other in this case.

Thank you, Butterflygirl35. Yesterday, AllEars posted the same announcement to their Newsletter, but there is no mention of an alternative pool.

Boardwalk Inn and Villas - The Luna Park Pool close for maintenance beginning January 2, 2013 and will reopen in early March.

Going to the word on March 16, does anyone know if the pool area will be open by then?

With the Boardwalk Bakery being closed for referb soon, do you think that they may add a drink station to the bakery? That would be awesome.

I did have another question that I am sure that someone on here will know. How long is the boat ride from the BW to HS if you get on at the BW? We have already decided that one day one of us (adults) will walk with our oldest DD while the other rides in the boat to see which one gets there faster.

Not that it would matter to our youngest. I just don't see him walking that distance and then walking in the park all day. Or walking in the park all day and then walking back to the resort.

I think no one will really know until the pool is actually re-opened. Right now, all we know is that it will close January 2 and re-open in early March -- there are a couple of sites (including wdwinfo.com) that report the pool will re-open on March 1. We are arriving at BWI on March 3 and I will post whether the pool is open then.

I think that the boat ride is about twenty minutes. I think the boat travels to the BC/YC and then Swan/Dolphin before heading to HS. We have tried to beat the boat, too, by walking from DH to BC. I've found it to be close.

Thank you! Glad to see that we are not the only ones that want to try this. Lol

I'll second that

My DW and I are both pretty athletic and decided to "race" one of the boats that was almost full. We walked from HS to the BW and just beat the boat by about 5 minutes (pushing a stroller). The stops are what slows the boat down.

I will say that my wife walked from HS to EPCOT and my DD and I took the boat (I was feeling lazy). She beat us by a good 20 minutes...again, the stops at the resorts take much longer than you'd expect.

I would honestly walk to the launch at the Swolphin and get on there if you are close enough. The boat will pick up at BWI then go to Swolphin THEN on to DHS. Maybe 25 minutes on the water total. If you get on at the Swolphin, it may cut down the wait by 10 minutes.

We are staying at BWV on our upcoming trip in May/June.

Last December I stayed at BWI and we had a great room for use. I'd like to request something closer to DHS in case we want to walk it in the morning, but I have no idea where to request a room for a 2BDR villa.

Any thoughts?

See the BW map here: http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/boardwalk.htm. The 'yellow' section is closest to the DHS walkway. Standard View will likely be of the valet parking lot otherwise you'll view the canal or quiet pool.
