I saw pictures of an alligator over in the lake near the Paddock at SSR. I've seen a gator in some of the different water areas riding around the bus at WDW.

The big turtle we saw crossing the BW was unexpected, but this guy really surprised us:

You didn't happen to see a hare pass it by, did you?

Hi Everyone!

We are considering a stay at BWI in one of the garden suites. It would be me, my dh, dd (13) and ds (10). A few questions:

1. I know that the garden suites are not that convenient to the club level lounge. But, the extra space in the garden suites sounds so nice! Does the extra space make up for the hike to the lounge? (The deluxe cl rooms are not available for our dates)

2. How comfy is the pull-out for sleeping? Would our son and daughter be ok? They're not too jazzed about sharing a bed, so just want to make sure they won't be uncomfortable.

3. I know the garden suites come with either a loft set-up, or a more private upstairs bedroom with a balcony. Any opinions on which set-up is better? Do the rooms with a balcony still have a cute little garden and fence at the entrance?

4. And, one question from my dh...what kind of beer do they serve in the lounge?

Thanks everyone!!

I'm not at all useful with these questions, but in general those cottages look awesome from the outside. It's like you have your own private house at Disney World. How can you beat that?

Enjoy!! We really liked the BWI club, everyone was very friendly. We'll be trying out the AKL club for the first time that same week.

For a boardwalk inn water view reservation- what is the closet possible room to the lobby? I think the views are much nicer toward the middle of the resort vs. all the way on the end past ESPN club.

What do you guys think the best water view location is at boardwalk inn?

Are the club rooms on the third floor directly under the ones on the fourth floor? Is it the same number of rooms or less?

I have never stayed CL but I have been doing tons of research. It seems that the CL rooms that are on the third floor are only the 3 deluxe cl rooms, they have bigger balcony's and they seem to be directly below the other deluxe cl rooms on the 4th floor. I did read that if the CL was booked up that they do have a few 'extra' regular rooms on the 4th floor that are out side the CL door.

Thank you so much for your quick reply . I've actually booked a SV but don't want to be down by ESPN and would rather have a high floor overlooking the garden towards the Eiffel Tower, I was just working out my odds of getting what I want.

We are staying at BWI for the first time!!! I keep hearing that i should request a room on a higher floor...however we are traveling with our two year old. Would it be worth it to get a first floor room so she has more room to play outside?? Also if we are unlucky and get a parking lot view,i definitely would not want her to be running around near that! Any advice would be appreciated! View? Or room to run??

Ps- if you are on the first floor is it more convenient to get around to the pools etc??

Thanks!
Chrissy
