Thanks for letting me know. I will request a "epcot" view. Also, my husband will be staying at the resort pool some days while I bring the kids to the parks. Is there someplace decent/nearby where he can get a nice lunch? We are on the ddp, if that matters. Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure if these are on the dining plan, but ESPN Zone and Big River Grille are on the Boardwalk. Big River Grille has really good hamburgers. Also, there are restaurants at BC, YC, swan and Dolphin which are all very lose by.

Thanks for the info. Is there anywhere to get a burger/sandwich if you are at the pool area? Most of the moderate/deluxe resorts have a bar/food ordering at the pool area, unless I am mistaking. Does Broadway bakery offer lunch?

Here is the link to all the BW dining information with menu links and photos. The BB does serve lunch and Leaping Horse Libations by the pool does serve sandwiches. It was closed recently for a rehab, but re-opened in March.

Quick update while on bus to Magic Kingdom for early entry. We did not have anything in the lounge last might because we had gone to Kimomos but when I stopped in for some cups it was busy. So far every cast member in every aspect has been friendly hand helpful. Any questions just ask

Does anyone know if doing online check-in early increases your chances of getting your requests as opposed to waiting until 30 or so days out?

Hi everyone! I was just on the phone with a CM who said that the only requests that can be made when booking a SV room is garden. Otherwise the room will face a parking lot.

I asked about an Epcot view and she said that is not possible to ask for when booking a SV. Was that right? I just took the info and will call back later. Should I just be asking for a garden view then?

I would call back and try again. They may not like to call it an Epcot view because its not like a MK view at the contemporary, but a knowledgable CM (and the room assigners) will know what the request means!
Good luck!

No, it won't make any difference. Your reservation will still be dropped into the resort's system about 5 days prior to arrival. The Room Assignor will see your requests and assign your room about 3-5 days prior to checking-in.

psac is correct, you need to call back. You can request anything you want, as it's only a request anyway. I don't know why the CM was hesitant as I've always had every request noted and never questioned by the WDTC. Sometimes they'll ask why I'm requesting "an odd numbered room" at CR, for example, but they've never denied noting a request. In fact, when I last booked CR, I mentioned the odd numbered room is often requested, but I didn't request it because I was also requesting a couple of other things. The CM actually asked me if I'd like to add it because there was plenty of room left for him to do so, even with two other requests.

If you've booked a STD View and would like a view like I posted on 6/26 above, just call the WDTC and ask them to tell you what requests are in your reservation, if "high floor" (the 5th floor is the one pictured above and is the highest non-CL floor) and "Epcot View" aren't in there, ask them to add it. Make sure you don't have any other "old" requests that don't pertain. Then ask the CM to read back all your requests. I know for a fact that they can "fit" at least three requests. When you check-in, ask the CM if you have an Epcot View.

Good luck and let us know what happens

Sfbank reporting live from Hollywood studios. Crowds are big here today too. We took our time this morning and got to rope drop I time not 1/2 hr ahead. Walked in. DH went to get fp for toy story while I took dd and her friend on tower of terror. Wait showed 30 it was 20. Not bad but only 9:20!!! R-n-r was a 30 min wait when DH took the kids. Definately crowded but we are not in a hurry.
Over in the BW lounge it was busy this morning. Two little girls joined DH and I since our kid was still getting out of bed lol. Weather is nice. We do miss Brian on the Boardwalk. Though about making a banner for our balcony that says we miss Brian!!

This thread has been such a great help with planning our upcoming (first) stay BWV.

I do have a question. Does anyone know any information on shipping items ahead of time to Boardwalk villas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the updates - keep em coming!

Is Brian one of the buskers?

To the person that asked about shipping ahead - I've never done it but I think I read that since BW is a convention resort you have to pay a $15 fee just to get the package at the front desk. Does anyone have experience with this? I'd be interested in shipping some thing down beforehand as well.
