I am taking DD12 in 6 days with my brother and neice so hopefully she will do ok with her Grandparents while we go.
I have a soft spot for Poly too but the rates were just too high this spring!

My BWV trip is just the ladies - no kids - so if you're missing yours we should meet up & say hello! I go WDW about 2-3 times a year without my kids - they've learned that this is how it is lol!!!

Aren't they fun! I've been going on ladies trips for the last 7 years. Some years I get to sneak two in, hoping for F & W this year.

We were Polynasian faithfuls but after staying at BW last year, I converted.
The rates are too much for me to justify staying Polynesian after so many times.

Dedicated studios

Hi everyone. Just wondering if all of them are in the same area. We have 2 garden/pool view studios booked and have requested dedicated studios. Also, do any of them connect?

Question about parking..

I was wondering if the self parking at BWI has been a problem for anyone. We plan to use the car at least once a day to go visit our doggie at Best Friends PetCare. We did this last year at AKL and didn't find it a problem but I have read the parking at BWI can be an issue. Feeling unsure about my resort decision...

We used self parking in October and had no problems. They have an overflow lot across the bridge and there are plenty of spots.

Or are you a Lodger and a BoardWalker. Well, at least your kids won't be with you when you're BoardWalking

We didn't have any problem either. It's less than a 5 minute walk back to the lobby. I think the only parking issue I might have read about are those who aren't staying at BWI/BWV who try to park there because they have an ADR.

I don't know if any of them connect, or if they are in more than one area (helpful, aren't I?). However, the most popular garden/pool view studio request recommended here is the Village Green (the area above the wyland gallery) because of the good views and proximity to the elevators. That whole area is only studios. We usually stay in a 1BR, so we haven't stayed there ourselves, but people seem very happy with it.

Just did my online checkin. What a pain! I am not loving the new website changes. Very annoying and frustrating.

Anyways, my last family trip we had 3 studios at the Boardwalk and were over the Wyland Gallerys (praying we get to stay in that area again this trip as we have 2 rooms and my parents and the proximity is great). Last time all 3 of our rooms were in a row but there was no connecting doors. I don't think they would do that for studios, only connecting for a 2 bedroom, but I could be wrong.

Take a stroll around the BW. We enjoy walking to DHS and Epcot. It's fun to make a stop at the YC and just sit in the lobby or look around the shop. Explore BWI some inside and out. The BW entertainers appear nightly and are lots of fun. They perform between the marina and BWI. I hope you have lots of fun in the sun!

Beaches & Cream isn't table service, you can't make a reservation for it, it's a walk-up. Absolutely you can go in just for ice cream, we do it all the time. Just be sure you're aware that there is usually a wait, especially right after Illuminations is over. There are plenty of tables & chairs outside that you can sit at to wait that overlook Storm Along Bay. They do have a take-out window for ice cream (not for the kitchen sink though!) if the wait is too long.

Welcome! In my experience, the wait without an ADR at B&C has always been too long for us and outdoor seating was full. But, you can order anything to-go and/or go without an ADR and wait and you can always pay out of pocket for anything you want at WDW.

I thought the same as you so I just checked the ADR site before posting above and it is a TS and you can make an ADR.
