The Community Hall is a great place for activities. My daughter took her two boys there in December and they loved it.

Can anyone tell me how long it take to get to MK, AK, and DtD from BWI via bus?

Specifically:

MK at Rope drop
AK in general
DtD early/at opening on a Saturday morning

(we'll walk or boat it to Epcot and HS, and I found that info in the opening)

I'm sorry if this has been covered. The thread is just so long! I tried searching, but it was getting tedious going through them all. Thanks so much!

I apologize that your question was overlooked. I've never used valet parking so I had to look it up:

Valet Parking is offered at all of the Disney Deluxe Resorts. There is a $15.00 daily fee ($16.88 with tax) for using this service. Valet parking is not free for DVC members.

Valet Parking is FREE for the following:

Tables in Wonderland cardholders with an Advance Dining Reservation at the resort where they are valet parking
All guests who have a current handicap license plate/tag
Tipping is appropriate and customary for valet parking.

There is the Sandcastle Club at the YC/BC. They usually have some activities around 2:30 - 4:00 (at least the Cub's Den at WL does). Around 4:30 they offer sitting services which includes dinner. HERE is the link to reviews. The Community Hall near the pool is free and I believe the hours are the same as BLT which is 9AM - 10PM. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

I haven't used the buses from the BWI, but I would recommend being at the bus stop at least one hour prior to the time you need to be there.

WDWKOOK can I ask you another question about the valet parking if you don't mind? Do they charge you a daily rate if you don't take your car again for a few days, say I left the car with them on a Monday and did HS on a Tuesday and Epcot on a Wednesday and then used the car again on a Thursday would we be paying for just the Monday or the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday?

My limited understanding is that the $15 is a daily charge whether you drive the vehicle or not because, presumably, your car will be occupying precious valet parking lot space, hence the daily charge. What you won't incur is any daily tipping since you'd just be 'storing' your car. Also, you only pay the daily fee once, so if you do decide to take your vehicle out multiple times or to a different resort, you will only be charged the fee once per day.

It used to be. Sadly, that is one privilege we lost.

Accessible Pool Lifts

I apologize is this has been covered already...Do any of the pools at the resort have lifts for people with disabilities?

I usually stay at the Dolphin but I have always wanted to stay in Boardwalk Villas. Thinking about treating myself for my 40th birthday in 2014.

Best,

Autumn

I don't believe I have ever seen a pool lift. AKV has zero entry. I also believe the GF has zero entry. Maybe SSR and BCV. I do believe I may have seen a lift at one of the DVC for the out door hot tub.

I would think it would be required under the ADA unless the pool is zero entry, but I really do not know..

ask over on the Disabilities board. they are really nice over there (esp. the moderator, Sue M., oh, and K peveler)

We were at BWI last month and there was a lift for the BWI quiet pool and the spa at that area. I did not see anyone use them, but i noticed them and they looked to be in great shape. The feature pool was just refurbished -- completed when we were there. It was warm enough to swim only one day for me, so I didn't use the feature pool. I have to believe they've installed a lift for disabled guests if one wasn't there before. I'm going to look for some photos. Also, my daughter and I will be at BWI in August and I will look then if I don't find an answer before. I note that you're interested in BWV, and will check that side.

No apologies on this thread, autumnblue. Last year at WL, I watched them install a new lift at the main pool. This is only an assumption, but I assumed that the resorts were all making sure they were compliant, but I can't answer your specific question about BWI/BWV, but I would think they, too are now compliant.



ETA: I fixed your ticker for you:





Here is your ticker address:

http://distickers.com/ticker/tickers...gs3j650xkp.png

Just copy and paste this into the yellow postcard icon in your tool bar above (after you hit 'reply') or just add [IMG] to the front and [/IMG] to the end and your ticker will display in your signature
