I need to join this thread. Just booked our trip and the BC wasn't available with the pin code we have. We have to stay at the Boardwalk instead.
I need all of you BW lovers to sell me on staying there.

I have two children ages 12 and 6 who love the BC pool and we all use our mugs. So the idea of no inside mug filler upper thingy is driving me nuts.
Tell me what we will love here.

Kook, you are everywhere!!

Our home resort is BLT, so I am thankful for all you do on that thread

I am trying to figure out points and vacations for the next few years. We are booked to stay at BLT over MLK week 2014. Now I am wondering if we should try in a few days to book at Boardwalk Villas (7 months out) to save on some points for a big family trip in 2015. Would you consider doing that? Does anyone know if there is any availability now at Boardwalk January 18-25, 2014? Also should I request a location close to the elevator and a studio standard view with a pull out couch? I read all Allears that some of the studios have day beds instead of a pull out, is that still accurate?

Just to let you know, you can fill your mugs at the Belle Vue Lounge which is inside BWI..

Really? I will have to check the map and find that.
My DS6 has a life threatening peanut allergy so the thought of going into the bakery has me going crazy!

We love love love the Boardwalk! We have stayed at Beach Club once and really prefer the Boardwalk! We love the entertainment on the Boardwalk at night! The Boardwalk bakery recently renovated and it is much larger than it was before! The refillable mug station has it's own door which will make it much easier to get in and out. The bakery before was way to small!

Who is going to be the first trip in our new BOARDWALK BULLETIN?! The BOARDWALK BULLETIN is at the end of Post #1 and is where I'll record your WDW resort (it doesn't have to be BWI/BWV) and dates. I will use magical erasing ink for known resort changers...

Welcome, Erin. It can be hard to switch resort gears when your mind is set on something else. SAB is very popular with kids, but the Luna Park pool does have a great slide, the Keaster Coaster and there are two other quiet pools, a hot tub, as well as a water feature area near the Luna Park pool. There is also an arcade and the boardWalk shops and eateries are just steps away.

I find BWI to be a very relaxed atmosphere and I like that the health club doesn't share with another resort. You're also closer to DHS and all the BWI rooms (except for around 3) have balconies. What's also nice is that with a STD view room, you have the possibility of having a beautiful garden view with the ability to see Epcot and Illuminations from the higher floors.

Welcome! Yes, my Sea Raycer gets me from Bay Lake to Crescent Lake nicely.

I'm going to leave your DVC question to one of our great DVC experts

At the top of the DINING and in the GUEST SERVICES section on the first page, I have a list of all refill locations.
