I have thought about it. But we'd need two since we are sleeping in two rooms.

I hope so. I'm taking my Wife of a little over 4 years. She has never been and really has no idea what to expect.

We actually have 5, lol. 1 for each bedroom and 1 for the camper. Take them everywhere we go. It eliminates being disturbed by things like people in the hallway, back-up beepers and, my wife claims, people who snore.

We've used them forever (ran a fan until we bought noise machines about 5 years ago). I'd suggest the Marpac Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner, found on Amazon for about $45. Ours have lasted since we purchased them. We also have a digital one with different sounds (crashing waves, water falls, etc...) that we bought this past summer. They haven't quite perfected that technology, however.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, there are nice whitenoise apps that work really well. I used to lug my machine with me on trips (not that big, but it takes up room and I had to remember to pack it), but I always have my iPhone and iPad with me.

We were on the 5th floor both times we stayed at BWV in a studio. It was quiet at night.

I concur. I play white noise on my iPhone using the iHome alarm clock in the room when I go to bed. Works great for me.

Can someone tell me the best way to get to Ohana and MK from BWV.

I was planning on going to Ohana during our day at MK but am considering changing the park to EP due to EMH but am worried this may be an inconvenience. I read traveling to MK from BWV is a hassle. Is this true? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a park hopper? You can go through Epcot (after the park opens for the day) and hop the monorail to the TTC. Then walk over to the Polynesian from the TTC (faster than getting the resort monorail).

Or you could take a bus from DHS to the Polynesian.

Or take a cab to the Polynesian.

Or take the bus from BW to MK and then the resort monorail or boat over to the Polynesian.

We don't have a hopper but will go to EP during the day and Ohana at night so could go through EP to the monorail. Is the monorail easier than the bus? (I'm traveling with 2 scooters)

Yes. We found the monorail easier than a bus with ECVs.

Hi all! Just wanted to say that we just returned from our first stay at BWV and absolutely loved it!!! Checked in last Friday around 10:30a and received a text by noon saying our room was ready. I had requested a high floor close to elevator and lobby and was given room 4050. I could not have been more happier with the location!! So very close to everything. We had an amazing view of Luna park pool with tower of terror in the back ground. I could have stayed on the balcony for hours enjoying the view. Buses were good. We only shared with swan and dolphin. Except coming back from DTD we also stopped at YC and BC. Being able to walk to Epcot and DHS was such a great perk! Loved it! We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

While December 25th was significant to many people for its religious importance, it was significant to us for another reason. It marked four weeks until we're back home

Glad you enjoyed it so much! We had "just" the three bus shares on our last trip, and if was definitely better than the five, but I still think BWI/BWV are big enough to not share at all. Sounds like you had a great room as well!

With the winter shaping up the way it is, darn straight. Just hoping Orlando stays warm for us. We're also doing something special this trip, the Wild Africa Trek at AK, which I'm totally looking forward to.

Happy New Year's Eve to All!

We will be arriving at BWV on January 18, 2014. Does anyone know when the January activities calendar will be released for BWV?
