Yes I'm trying to figure out if there is a hot tub at BWV quiet pool (where community hall is). I don't think there is one.
Thanks WDWKOOK for the pic - that is the quiet pool at BWI right?

There is a hot spa at the quiet pool for the Villa side. Here is a link to a photo I found: http://allears.net/acc/bw41.jpg

The photo WDWKOOK posted was of the BWI quiet pool. It is so beautiful and quiet over there.

DH is so busy with tax season that he hardly has time to talk about our plans but is very excited!
You will have such a good time. We went alone for our 25th anniversaty in 2009.

Like you, the Polynesian was like our home untill I stayed at BW with a friend last year.
Brought the family in January for their 1st BW trip and they loved it also. So I have to say we moved. Still love the Polynesian CL lounge, but BW was was great too!

Recently switched from staying at the Swan to staying at BWI (Standard View). Online check-in gives me the option of requesting what floor I would prefer to be on. Any floor better than any other? I presume for a standard view it probably does not make much of a difference. Thoughts?

Well this is what we do as far as requests for a floor. I always prefer the higher floors and never want a 1st floor so we just make note of that on our reservation.

Of course it's just a request and not guaranteed but we usually get top floor or 2nd to the top.

Not sure if I answered your question though.

We had a standard view when we were there earlier this month. Based on recommendations from this thread, we requested highest floor; 5th floor. We had a wonderful room on the 5th floor overlooking the garden. At night, we had an excellent view of Illuminations. I loved that room. On the 5th floor, you never have that long of a walk to the elevators. There is no 5th floor for most of the BWI building. While we were there for 5 nights, we rarely saw other people on the floor and rarely had anyone else on the elevator with us -- never all the way to the 5th floor. Also, while I'm sure they move CMs around for housekeeping, that floor was always **** and span and our room was always well cared for.

Congratulations on switching to BWI. A Standard BWI View can be a Garden and/or Epcot View which is what I would request. Online Check-in has only pre-set prompts, but that doesn't mean you can't have a Garden and/or Epcot request placed in your reservation. As long as it's in there at least 3-5 days prior to arrival, the room assignor should see your request. OCI limits what you can request, but doesn't negate any requests already in your reservation. So if you do request a Garden/Epcot view, you might want to also request a high floor so you have a potentially better view of Illuminations

From MousePlanet and I heard this on DIS Unplugged 3/19:


Walt Disney World annual passholders can now trade in their paper cards for plastic cards equipped with RFID chips to allow entry through the new turnstile-free gates. Passholders can make the exchange at the Odyssey in Epcot anytime before May 20, and as a bonus there are some props on exhibit there while you wait your turn. Premier passholders still need to wait for more information before exchanging passes.

"props on exhibit".....interesting! My AP expires TOMORROW (a sad event, I know). I have 30 days to renew, and I'll be back 4/21 so I will just make it. HOWEVER, I think I'm just going to buy a new one & not renew, since the start date would revert back to 3/22. It will cost me $40 more but I also gain 30 days in extension for next year. If that makes sense to anyone. BUT I want to see the props - so maybe I wil get in line with my current expiring paper AP, acting like I'm renewing....then change my mind when it's my turn. If they send me to Guest Relations oh well, then at least I saw the props.

WAIT A MINUTE!! This won't work, I can't get into Epcot with an expired AP!

It's easy doing it at the IG since it's rarely busy, then you can get your TIW, too if it's expired. We like exchanging our military AP vouchers and getting TIW there.

if we do online check in do we still get to check in with a person? so I can be sure I am happy with the location of the room?

last time we did online checkin was 2009 I think....we still checked in with someone...it seems more automated now

just wanted to ask
