I own BWV and love it there too (as well as most of the other DVC resorts). And I do like the BWV pool, but I think on of the funniest things I've ever read on this board was somebody's compliant about "the clown vomitting kids into the pool"!!!!

There is nothing like spending an evening on your balcony overlooking the Boardwalk. My wife and I are social creatures, but we LOVE being able to watch everyone on the boardwalk and relax in our PJs sipping a drink.

BWV is awesome!

We've stayed at BWV 3 times in standard view rooms. We love the feeling of being in the middle of it all. Being so close to our favorite park Epcot is the best and being just steps away from all the activity on the Boardwalk is great. We've always had wonderful rooms and never had any problems with noise, even when we were next door to the vending room. We don't mind the walks from the elevators, and usually use the stairs to get to the pool or bus stop. The hallways have a very distinct smell, I think it maybe like coppertone suntan lotion, but every once in a while I'll smell it at home and it takes me back.

We love BW too! DH and I just got back from a 3-night stay at BC and we a ctually spent more time over at the BW than at our our resort! I just love the atmosphere over there. There's always something going on. The lobby is beautiful - especially at Christmas. We walked over one morning and got coffee and danish from the bw bakery and sat by the lake and enjoyed a beautiful morning. It was so nice. I can't wait to go back!

BWV is the closest timeshare to the Dolphin Hotel. Whoo-hoo! I love that backdoor leading from the far end of the interior hallway out toward the Swan/Dolphin saving countless steps each day of our visit.

(Sure, I know this isn't the average post -- but is why I enjoy BWV.)

We bought BWV earlier this year and our first trip home was 12/7 to 12/11. We had a wonderful one bedroom- 5011. Board walk view and top floor, no smoking. Exactly what I'd requested. No problems at all (other than the missing Christmas tree our first day), we really enjoyed the villa. We'll be back next December as we're taking my husband's whole family to the BWV with us.

We love the BWV. It is perfect - great location, close to great restaurants and a beautiful view. We always seem to return to it and consider it our home although we officially own at SSR.

Can't tell you how many tough times the prospect of an upcoming BW view room has got me through. Falling asleep while looking at illuminated Spaceship Earth--priceless.

Uh oh...I just booked our first BW view. We usually stay standard view and have also had pool view, but September 2007 will be our first Boardwalk view...I'm nervous that it will be like staying in a 1BR after thinking that a studio will always be enough - will we never go back?!?!? I already have addonitis, so I'm guessing the BW view room will just aggravate my condition

We bought into BWV's and went on our first trip in Sept. There are soooo many things I love about BWV's and the BW, itself:

Waking up and walking to the BW Bakery for coffee and muffin and just sitting on the BW and watching people pass by..And watching the birds&ducks come in for food people throw out to them

Watching the BW entertainment

Having the ability to walk to MGM and EPCOT.... Or take the boat if desired...

Loved the quiet pool AND the clown slde!!!

Loved everything about it and am glad we bought there!!!
