We decided BCV and BLT will be our big trip each year and settle for OKW or SSR the other trips.... but BW is stunningly beautiful at Christmas....

I always get a room plum at the end of the hall and the walking is so dreaded with 4 little ones... but hey, smallest is 6 and all are older... and these days, you practically can't get into a resort unless it's your home resort....

hmmmmmm....... how to come up with cash for BLT.... I had no idea you could rent points till I found this site.... that is way cool.... hey, I should rent to my family.... you know, the ones I have been giving points to for FREE!!!!!

reconsidering...
Dear reconsidering

We have struggled with this as well. Luckily we were able to buy into BLT (we had been planning for over a year) without selling our BWV. Of course, the wife LOVES VWL and BCV. So the question becomes, with all the resales what do we do.

We have come to the conclusion (I think) that the commission, and loss on the BWV resale is too much to justify selling it. We do love BWV despite its quirks (no inside CS, difficult to refill mugs, long hallways, distant parking) - but she would rather have one of the others to go with BLT. I am now watching for a small VWL resale and will perhaps, over time, acquire enough points elsewhere that I can justify getting rid of BWV. But I'm not willing to sell my BWV just because... a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush... :D

Just wanted to say that we spent our 15th wedding anniversary at BWV, top floor, epcot view, for the first time at BWV and it was an AWESOME vacation!

We almost bought BWV from disney about 10 years ago and chickened out. We later bought VWL, and while we love VWL and feel like it's our home, we also wish we had a BWV "home" now.

We are still waiting to close and I'm getting very anxious.

We want to book a trip for Memorial Day week 2009. How hard do you think it will be to get a studio after the 7 month window opens?

We're close to that window right now! I'm hope to book something tomorrow at the 7 month window for my DSis, for one night after our DCL cruise. I hope we both get what we want! In the past, at 7 months I was able to get a studio at BCV for Memorial day weekend. I think BWV will be possible. I hope you close soon, and if nothing is available, do waitlist!

Did you try to book today?

What was available?

Still no word and I emailed my agent 2 days ago asking for an update!

Hi! I wasn't trying for BWV this time...my family has a room at Kidani and I was hoping to get DSis there, but there were no studios with savannah view available there. She could have gotten one at Jambo, but I thought she would rather be with us in Kidani, so I booked her standard view. I know that I bought AKV for the animials, savannah view, and it looks like the other owners at AKV did too!

where are the free washer / dryers at the BWV

We are staying for the first time in may, and wondering where the washer/dryers are? Since its both dvc and regular, are they at the pool area?

Thanks

I think it might be best if someone PMs the answer to you... there have been complaints about non-dvc folk using the DVC laundry rooms for the 'free machines' after they read about them on these and other similar boards.

I love BWV!

My favorite thing is to get a boardwalk view room and relax on the balcony in the early morning with a cup of coffee, watching as the lights turn off at YC/BC, the sun rises, and the boardwalk slowly comes to life (i.e., a line forms at Boardwalk Bakery!).
