We didn't see one ourselves, but it seems like there are a lot of reports at the BC but not the BW. Maybe they're scared of clowns?

It might be worth a quick excursion around the BC grounds to see if he can find one.

Hi everyone! We are coming in on April 10 to the BWI, and I have a question about onine checkin requests. I am booked in a standard room, but I have an option for floors, and canal view, and boardwalk view. Can anyone help me with the floors option? Do I want highest floor, or 5th floor, or 4th floor or what? Last time we stayed there we got a ground floor, and we did not like that. Should I select highest floor? What is the 4th or 5th floor like? Also, if I selected canal or boardwalk view, would I even get that since we are just booked for a standard room?
Any help on this would be so appreciated!

I think we will spend some time looking around BC. He would be so excited to see one.

He likes turtles too. So that would be a win.

There are usually turtles swimming around and under the loading dock area at DHS for the boats that go from DHS to the Epcot resorts and Epcot. DD is always on the lookout for them and we usually spot a couple.

Thanks!! I'm sure all my kids will be interested in finding them.

Mug refill reminder:

The BoardWalk Bakery is undergoing renovations now through April 26, 2013. For guests who are using refillable mugs, you'll still be able to pick up the mugs at the temporary tent location, or at Seashore Sweets, located adjacent to the Bakery. Guests can refill their mugs at the temporary location from 6:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily. After 11 a.m., refills will be available at the Boardwalk Pizza Window until midnight. Guests can also refill their mugs during these hours at Belle Vue Lounge, Seashore Sweets, and Leaping Horse.

Of course there are always the thousands of little lizards that are everywhere also! They are fun to watch as well.

When I was a kid I would catch them all the time when we went to FL. I can remember the first time a tail came off in my hand. I was traumatized.

i thought they moved the alligator from the BC because it got too large....?

we've seen an alligator in the water between tom sawyer's island and frontierland (as recently as last fall). it is missing one "arm", but seems to be doing quite well in its habitat
e've recently seen another in AK park, in a protected (sloped, with fencing) on the way into dinoland, before chester & hester's. he would probably enjoy seeing all the animals in AK anyway (especially kalimarnjaro safari & pangani trail).

Thanks the tips! He does like the trails at AK. Especially the bird area. He wanted to spend forever in the bat enclosure last time. The Gator in AK is the one they have in the park on purpose right? That really big one? My DS watched it lay there (with myself holding him so he could see) for at least 20 mins.

The Online Check-in seems to only generate popular requests and not necessarily all possibilities nor even likely ones. A BoardWalk view isn't a STD room option, unless staying club level. Best to request an actual STD view option, as you'll be much more likely to get it. I think an Epcot (Garden) View on the 5th floor is the perfect STD View request. The view is wonderful and you can watch Illuminations from your balcony. Just call the WDTC and add your request now to your reservation. Good luck and have a great vacation!

We encountered a very large turtle crossing over from the grassy area next to the Crescent Lake canal that's after ESPN. I was surprised to see it s l o w l y making its way over toward Crescent Lake.
