If you booked a CL Deluxe room though, then you would have two queens and a queen sleeper and you'd be in the same building as the lounge and have a guaranteed BWV. Do you have to have the half bath?
I would love to book a CL Deluxe room but that category is not available with the discount I have. Again, DD and DS don't care if they have to sleep together (we are lucky with that) but after our 19 day trip to the west coast where they had some BAD sleeper sofas, I just want to be sure they will be comfortable.

I will be watching to see if any other rooms open up with our discount this week and then need to make a decision.

Thanks!
Jen

Our only WDW sleeper sofa experience was in a BLT one-bedroom and the WL Presidential Suite. DD reported both as being very comfortable. However, the WL sleeper was diabolical to open.

Availability, even with discounts, is fluid so don't be shy about checking every so often to see if something else might be available. Good luck!

My head is spinning! The boys & I leave for our cabin on Monday morning & have no access to internet, cell phones, TV, nothing. So I can't even check obsessively to see if BWI rooms open up LOL!! When we return we'll only be 10 days away from the Disney trip. I know I will completely ignore the hoards of laundry & housework to sit on the computer & plot!
My DH called me at work at the end of May with a similar story about our June trip to DLR. At work! Like it couldn't wait. He was convinced he couldn't go. Then, all of a sudden things are fine.

He's already fretting over a transaction that is supposed to close at the end of Oct interfering with our Oct (his birthday) trip. (The same transaction that would have interfered with the June trip) I will not fret until the day before we leave. I've learned that. Not the first time, won't be the last that he is concerned about having to cancel.

Staying for the first time at Boardwalk on August 11. I am so excited. I have two questions.

I was trying to do online check in and the room preferences only relate to what floor. I made my reservation by phone, and I know from checking a couple times that they have noted by king bed request. If i check a floor on online check in, am I going to lose my king request? (I would rather have a king than a floor, and given the limited supply of king beds, I didn't want to upset that request).

Second, has anybody been there recently or is there that can give an update on the refridgerator issue? I don't want to use a cooler, so i don't want to bring bottled water down if I am not going to have access to one. I am driving, but I still don't want to lug it around if I don't have to. I am just checking to see if there is any up to date intelligence on this front.

Thanks in advance.

I'd love to be added to the bulletin. My sister and I are staying at BWV October 27 - November 2. This will be our first time staying at the Boardwalk. Actually, it's a trip of a lot of firsts for us - first stay at a deluxe resort, first time at F&W, first Halloween party. We're so excited to be going! This trip has been planned since last November. I thought we'd never get down to the double digits, haha.

Gee, thank you, psac, at ease

I should be planning for next year, but I'm a bit distracted by next week's vacation. DH just found out that he's going to be able to take leave a day earlier so we'll drive down in two days instead of one which means getting to WL/CL 8 hours earlier! You've had so many great WDW vacations this year. What are your 2014 plans?

This is only a guess, but WDW loves offering new cupcake flavors all the time at the resorts, like Contempo Cafe for example, so I would think they'd change at the the BWB, too. The Disney Food Blog might have some updates.

Congratulations! I can't answer your fridge question (I only have current intell. on WL right now), but Online Check-in only offers pre-set choices and they are very limited and often not even applicable. Always indicate in your reservation what your preferences are by calling the WDTC. OCI won't negate those requests so don't worry about that.

I'd be happy to add you and congratulations on booking your trip of firsts! You guys are going to have a wonderful time!

Hi folks! Just kicking around ideas for our next trip that "needs" to be planned. We are thinking of requesting the Community Hall area. Anyone care to tell me why they do or do not like that area? We'll have enough points that we don't have to do SV...and I believe we're on our vacation this year when the booking window opens, so I might (cough cough) forget to book for a few days...best to plan for PV...

Thanks in advance!

So you actually want the leisure or quiet pool area. Community Hall is adjacent to the quiet pool, not Luna Park.

If you have the points and are booking somewhat early, why not go for Boardwalk view? Have you tried it yet? Otherwise the community hall area probably would be nice and quiet and closer to walk to HS.

Glad you'll be able to get in more of tour trip!! thats excellent.
We going to try Kidani for the first time (really loved Jambo in April), and we'll likely do our normal BW in Nov, but we're thinking of maybe trying that "other" Disney park next year. I've never been to the 'Land.
