We love the location of the Boardwalk. The pool is closed regardless of the room's location. We tend to eat in our rooms for breakfast only. We prefer updated rooms to outdated. Thanks so much for your time and expertise!
Also the two real queen beds in the regular room vs one queen and one queen sofa bed in the studio is something to take into consideration. Whether it is worth it or not is something only you can decide. Either way enjoy the BW!!!

Ps -- Great picture KOOK!! Happy new year everyone!

The studio has one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa. The one bedroom has a king in the master bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Makes the standard hotel room look even better. All you are missing is the microwave and toaster.

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.
It's less than 1.25 miles from the turnstiles at Hollywood Studios to the International gateway at Epcot. My wife and I were able to walk it very leisurely, while pushing our two year old in a stroller, in less than 20 minutes.

The turnstiles at Hollywood Studios are also about .75 mi to the Luna Pool, so most would be able to walk that in under 18 minutes.

From the courtyard on the BoardWalk side of the resort to the International Gateway, you are looking at less than .40 miles, so most people would be able to walk that in less than 10 minutes.

The BoardWalk is photogenic and I'm good at copying and pasting

I don't know firsthand, but someone over on the Beach Club thread just posted that they got a letter in the mail saying Stormalong Bay would be closed for a few weeks beginning 1/16, and they could use the Luna pool during that time. In order for that to work, I would guess Luna Park will be open until the end of the month ...

Just want to clarify. The SLIDE at Storm Along Bay will be closed, not the whole thing.

BWI IPO confirmed that the Luna Park rehab begins on January 28. Wdwinfo.com reports that the Jib Slide closure at SAB runs through January 25. So BC guests can use Luna Park through the 25th, and BWI guests can use SAB starting on January 28.

No, not at all and thanks for the response! And thanks to everyone else for posting updates. We received the letter saying Luna was closing on 1/2 but I was pretty confident that all of the responses from BW IPO were correct....yay!
