all BWV 2 bdrm are lock-offs - which means they are a 1 bdrm and studio combination, the studio having its own balcony.

just 45 hours until we're on our way to my favorite place on earth: our BWV, BW view balcony

Wow...have fun! I know they are lovely, we had a BW view once, but I'm sold on the bargain of the standard view. I am especially fond of staying sv during the high point time of NYE! We are lucky to have the choice at BWV!

The Boardwalk

Without a doubt the best. Just think of all the restaurants within a short walking distance compared to other resorts.

We returned on Tuesday from our first stay at the villas side of BW - really happy with the location and room. We liked it better than BCV. We had a preferred studio with view of the clown pool. DD had tons of fun with the afternoon poolside activities and we were shocked that she went down the big slide all by herself. The pool noise was loud in our room during these activities, so if you had little nappers, that could be a problem. We were fortunate enough to reserve this at the 7-month mark, so we were close to Epcot for the Food & Wine Festival as well as stumbling home after the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. We will be back for next year!

The Epcot walk is very easy. Maybe 5 minutes? The walk to DHS we find a little long for us, so we prefer the boat.
Strollers can be left open if there is room inside the boat behind the last row of seats.
With 3 kids in tow, you may want to request a room near the lobby/elevators!

I do believe your list just sold DH on staying at this resort. You can't argue with a man's belly! I knew there were lots of dining choices but it's impressive to see them all written down. Thanks!

Glad to hear that there is a balcony off the master and the living room.

And thanks for clarifying on the studios for the 2 bedrooms everyone!

We just returned from our first stay at BWV and LOVED IT. OMG, everything about it was wonderful. Location, location, LOCATION. We had a Preferred View studio(1019) and though the view itself was not wonderful, it was close to the exit right at the Luna Pool and close to the elevators. The view was of a courtyard, canal and partial Swan but right by a door where CMs brought out the big rolling bins of linens. We weren't in there that much so we didn't care. It was FABULOUS. We will most definitely be back there!

Does anyone know if there is a place at the BW conference center that we could have something notarized? DSis and I need that service when we arrive later this month.

Do they sell eggs (as in to cook yourself) at the Boardwalk store? We'll be doing a supermarket stop, but planning on mostly cereal, bottled water, etc. It would be good to know if we changed our mind and want to make eggs, we'd have the option. (will not have a car once we get there.). Thanks!!

I'm at the BWVs now (actually laying by the quiet pool, glorious sunshine and crystal blue skies).
Bobbie, i'll ask at the FD about a notary when I leave here.
And yes, they sell eggs and various groceries at the screendoorm

We've been here since sunday, leaving tuesday, and are having an absolutely wonderful, amazing, perfect time - finally it's real instead of just a dream again!

I stopped by the Concierge desk at BWI/BWV this afternoon to ask about this. I was told there are two notaries at the Boardwalk. Just ask at the front desk or at the Concierge desk when you get here so you can arrange to meet with one of them during your stay.
