No, the carousel is just a small display in the lobby

We just got back from a wonderful week in rooms 4040/4042 (2br lock off) They looked out onto the Luna park pool, we're close to the elevators, and very convenient. We found the walks to DHS and EPCOT to be very easy and the boardwalk itself a blast! I think we'll try to stay at this resort from now on!

Was there any noise from the refurbishment of the pool? That is my only concern for my next trip. I don't mind overlooking the pool while they are working on it, but I'd rather it wouldn't be super noisy with construction.

Hi Everyone

My DVC waitlist just came through and I will be staying at BWV for 4 nights in April. This is my first time at the resort. I cannot wait to read the thread and take in everything the resort has to offer!

Just booked BWI

for the end of Sept. Standard room. hubs and 3 kids 4,6,8. 1st time for BWI, I normally request a room by the big pool and close to a bus stop. Will that apply for BWI?

From the pics in this thread, looks like the kids will have fun with the slide!! I can't wait!!

The BWI rooms aren't as close to the themed pool as the BWvillas are. You are on the opposite side of the building. Plus there is only one bus stop, but that is on the BWI side of the entrance.

We are staying here in 2 weeks. This thread looks great. So excited, never stayed at deluxe before. We went through DVC too. We have a son at 5 years and a daughter at 8.5 years. Looking to see what room to request.

I just wanted to add that the bus stop is not needed for DHS and Epcot. For those two parks, you can walk or take a boat. For us, the location of the bus stop in relation to rooms at BW is just not relevant.

Was it for a studio for the first week in April? If so, it may have been my cancellation.

Disney fan who has stayed 35+ times. Never stayed at BWI and considering CL for my dd 18 bday. (Dh and DS have ok'd mom n daughter trip). I have stayed atrium club at CR and SL at GF. We loved those! We are monorail girls but price this Easter is way high. I found somewhere there is tea service and sweets 2:30p-4p(?). Can someone confirm this? Any tips for experienced park people just new to BWI?

Thanks!

Sounds fun!! We've stayed both atrium club at CR and CL at BWI. I know this thread will disagree with me, but we preferred the CR atrium club. In response to your park tips....WALK! It's so nice to be able to walk to Epcot and DHS. We also tried to adjust our days so we would maybe spend a morning in EPCOT and then we could just take the monorail from the front of the park over to MK. This reduced having to use the busses a lot. The busses at the Epcot resorts frustrate me because they are often shared between BWI, BC, YC, Swan and Dolphin which either means having to stop at multiple resorts after you're picked up, or being the final stop, but having full busses arrive and not having room to get on.
