We may skip a rental car for the first time, and I am trying to cover all my bases before we make the decision (Magical Express, Garden Grocer, etc).
The general store on the boardwalk sells liquor beer and wine.

first time!

Hi everyone! We are leaving thursday morning for our disney wedding and will be staying for our first time at BWV. I was just wondering if the pool refurb is on schedule? We really want to take our son and are hoping it will be open on 3/1 if not earlier! Anyone know what the chances are that it will open on time? Or earlier?

You would have to upload the pics to a photo sharing site like photobucket. Then you can copy and paste the img link here in a post.

Yes you did. While I love the club level and the cast members, the Boardwalk resort itself is wonderful no matter what. Enjoy!

Would you rather- club level or boardwalk view room for 5 nights two adults. I'm having an awfully hard time deciding... in love with the idea of view if crescent lake but maybe it's not as awesome as I think it will be. Club Level lounge looks gorgeous and is only $200 more for the trip.

just wanted to add that you can buy beer (not sure about wine) at the Hess gas station. you can walk (albeit a longish walk) from the BW. but a lot cheaper than at the BW..

when we fly down we usually make a trip to DTD, and walk across the street to the Hess sataion there to pick up beer early in the trip. yes, you can bring it on the bus.. and normal prices, too!

It IS as awesome as you think it'll be. I worked there for several years and I still drive over just to sit and watch the boats. It's the only thing at Disney that hasn't lost some of its magic for me

Club Level is fantastic, mostly because of the CMs and their hard work. When I worked there, CL gave you 50/50 chance of getting Boardwalk view- is that still correct? It's a gamble, but I think I'd do CL over guaranteed BW view. If you choose BW view, ask for top floor! Those boats get loud

Why don't you take the $200 you'd put toward CL and just tack on the other two nights at Boardwalk instead of looking at another resort?

For $200 more it's worth it.

We stayed CL last month and enjoyed it. But ours cost more then $200 for 5 nights.

If CL is $200 for the 5 nights, I would grab that. We're going at the beginning of March for 5 nights and CL was A LOT more than that. I couldn't justify the additional expense.
