I know I read this somewhere on this thread a month or so ago, but now I can't find it. Sorry about that.

For a standard room, where do we want to request the room to be for best view and quickest access out?

I'm thinking it was facing EPCOT, high up, but I'd like verification or correction on that. Thanks!

One of many, and many perks, too are gone - like unlimited use of non-motorized recreational equipment when staying onsite - those were the good ol' days.

Thank you for confirming this for the OP, Pete.

"Best" is relative, but for a STD room, I would request an Epcot/Garden View on a high floor, preferably 5th so there wouldn't be anyone above.

If you hadn't moved us up on the WL thread from page two, I might be giving you one of these . I will be so impressed if someone can answer this - maybe a CM

I don't know what it is, but Walmart is now selling Disney paint. Could be they have one that is the same?

Hey!

It's an honest question and one I've tried to have answered for years!

Close, but not quite. BWI has more blue in it tho.

Maybe I need to offer a "very special award" as an incentive to the poster who can answer your question....How about this (In JPEG form, of course)....

I suggest you send an e-mail to Disney World using their "contact us" link: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/contact/

I have sent in a few off the wall (not literally on the wall, like you) questions to them over the years and when they can answer they do. I asked about the brand and style of mattress at CSR and brand of fertilizer at another of the resorts. They were very helpful. I'm sure that there are plans somewhere with the wall color noted, but it might be proprietary to WDW and they won't give it out. Good luck in your hunt.

Or, they don't want to give out the color because they want us to pay $ to return and experience it there.

Hi all - We're going to be staying at the BWV for the first time over the last week of May, and I have some questions regarding getting to DHS early in the morning. We'd like to get there a bit earlier than rope drop (as most websites including this one suggest doing to get in as much action as possible before the crowds arrive). I see according to certain websites that the boats start running half an hour before the park opens. So here are my questions:

1A) Is the information I've found accurate? Do the boats start running half an hour prior to park opening?
1B) Would those boats get us to the park before rope drop, or would the loading times get us there just after the park opens?
2) Are the first boats in the morning really crowded?
3) Would you suggest just walking instead? Note that we're not opposed to walking, but we do know we'll be doing a lot of walking over the course of the week and might be more inclined to take the boat unless it's going to make a big difference.

Thanks!

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.

Thank you! I really appreciate the information.
