Does anyone have pictures of the view from a first floor unit facing the boardwalk?

These were from the last room on the first floor, next to Jelly Rolls.
We never had any issue with nose from the club or patrons.

We usually stay in the standard rooms but when we don't we like the Quiet Pool view. While it can be far away from the elevator, it is nice. Learn the location of the stairways if you are able to use them because they make getting to places (Boardwalk or the Studios) more convenient.

GoJoe, thanks! Those look higher up off the boardwalk, but it was the ground floor? Couple of questions on that room. I hear there is a back door near your room that exits right near jellyrolls so you don't have to walk all the way down the hallway then back up the boardwalk. True? Is there a patio or balcony off this room? Do you have any pics closer to your room to show how far off the boardwalk you are? Thanks so much.

We were one floor up from that room (rm 2001), and yes, there are stairs and a back door that leads to behind Jellyrolls. You have to walk around Jellyrolls and a service vehicle entrance to get to the Boardwalk. We used it frequently!

Sooo looking forward to our 2nd stay here. Completely fell in love with BWV last year. I was originally disappointed because we couldn't get BCV. However, this is now my fav DVC. One of my favorite things to do is just take a walk to studios the studios and back in the morning while drinking coffee our of my Disney mug!

I can even get past the scary clown pool...but I swear I'm not swimming in it. That clown could suck me in ..never to be seen again....lol

As far as I know there are not any rooms on the first floor Boardwalk view. The stores, the DVC sales, Big River restaurant and Jelly Rolls take up the first floor.

I've been suggesting for a long time that they should turn the clown around so you slide into its mouth. It would certainly add to the experience.

Not true. As you face the DVC Sales center, there are rooms just to the right, between the Sales Center and Jelly Rolls. They used to be part of the Sales Center but were converted to rooms when the BWV Sales Center was downsized and the main Sales Center moved to SSR.

There are actually a couple of rooms at the end next to the preview center. One designated 1BR and a 2Br that can be divided. See this map from Shamus.

Every once in a while we get a Boardwalk View Room and I always request high floor, partially due to those rooms (that I've never had and shouldn't judge but can't help myself).

i love the boardwalk any time of year but christmas is really fabulous. They have a gingerbread house there and they sell something called Broke Bread or the like. The displays are really cool and santa roasts over a chimney fire Last early december it was VERY warm and we swam everyday, too. Oh, and check out the candy shop. It's all done up.

Do you have a boardwalk view?

We love the Boardwalk. My standard view waitlist came in today for the week of December 14th - December 22nd. We can't decide on adding on points at the Boardwalk or somewhere else. ... congrats on your Boardwalk points!

Well worth it to own at the BWV to get first crack at standard view rooms and their low points. The point difference between the BWV standard view and other places really gets you more bang for the buck. Good luck deciding.
