I think I'm losing my mind-can't remember where I saw it but maybe someone can provide info.

Are the BWV having a major water pipe refurb in October

(We'll be there 9-18 but in the Inn part)? Will this effect the pool area at all?

Do all of the WV rooms overlook the Boardwalk and Crescent Lake? If not, what else do these rooms have a view of? Is there a map available that shows which rooms are categorized as GV and WV? TIA!

"Are the BWV having a major water pipe refurb in October"

We just returned from BWV today and our hallway was definitely having water pipe work done. At first with thought it was from Charlie, but it appeared to be scheduled work. The carpet was covered in plastic in the hall and they were cutting out the ceiling, fixing pipes and then replacing the ceiling. It really didn't bother us much until they cut the phone line to our room and we didn't get a wake up call!!

I think there's a map showing a bird's eye view of the all the boardwalk resorts on the YC Thread. It shows an overview of YC, BC and BWI. They also show a hotel map of YC and BC, showing all the room locations on each floor. But I've never seen one for BWI.

I have requested Boardwalk/Waterview rooms for our visit 11/6-13, but now I'm not so sure. I've reserved concierge rooms, but wondering if we should request Garden view. I definitely don't want a view of Luna Park. Would this be considered a waterview room. If so, I may be better off requesting a garden view and hope for a view of Epcot and Illuminations.

Luna Park is on the Villas side so you would not get it with an Inn reservation. There is a quiet pool on the Inn side. From what I understand, all the water view rooms face the lake.

BOARDWALK MAP

Trying to post a map of the Boardwalk.

Not working, but here is the link.

www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/boardwalk.jpg

It's hard to see the alphabet codes for various locations, but try to print it off and it should be easier.

Post BOARDWALK INN DETAILS

Here's a copy of the last link, without the original layout or fonts, but with all the pertinent details, nonetheless. I'm still searching for floorplans and layouts...

BOARDWALK INN FACT SHEET


WHAT IS THE THEMING OF THE BOARDWALK INN?
The 378 room BoardWalk Inn captures the feel of the '20s and '30s Eastern Seaboard. Crescent Lake makes a beautiful place to stroll around the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk itself is reminiscent of an easy going era of entertainment, dining, and vacation fun. The lighthearted, yet elegant atmosphere is pleasing to just about any age.

The lobby has beautiful furnishings, whimsical carousel rugs, interesting models of roller coasters and carousels, and music that will take you back to the Great Gatsby era. The window seats along the hall of the lobby are inviting conversation areas. The chandeliers and hard wood floors add an air of elegance to this lively, fun at heart resort.

Other deluxe resorts are nestled in the Crescent Lake area. The Yacht and Beach Clubs blend in beautifully and the theme fits perfectly with the three resorts around the lake. The Swan and Dolphin are a short walk away and add to the idea of whimsy and fun.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF STAYING AT THE BOARDWALK INN?
The close proximity to Epcot and the Disney-MGM Studios make this a convenient place to stay. Having 4 other premium resorts within walking distance makes the BoardWalk a sure bet for great dining and entertainment options. The promise of entertainment and fun on the Boardwalk is great for families, or even fun-loving couples. Being a deluxe resort, the BoardWalk Inn lures those who want to be pampered and enjoy all of the amenities a deluxe resort has to offer.

HOW ARE THE ROOMS LAID OUT?
The 390 square foot rooms are decorated in whites, blues, light greens and yellows. The mix of florals and bold colors makes for a sense of fun, and has the feel of a vacation home that doesn't exactly have perfectly matching patterns. The curtains have a whimsical postcard print on them. The furniture is beautiful cherry wood, and the bathrooms and vanities are marble.
The rooms are well appointed with either 2 queen beds and a daybed, or a king-size bed and a daybed. An armoire houses the television and provides drawer space for your belongings. There is a small table with 2 chairs, a spacious closet, a chest of drawers, and a private balcony or patio. Take note that the daybeds are 60 inches long! The bathroom is great for more than one person trying to get ready in the morning. The toilet and bathtub are separate from the vanity area. The vanity has two sinks and plenty of counter room, and a full length mirror on the door.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ROOM VIEWS?
The Standard View category can either overlook the manicured grounds near the entrance of the resort, with the parking lot beyond that; or they can overlook beautiful gardens and walkways and quiet pool. These Standard Views seem to be the most private since they are closed off from the Boardwalk and the parking areas.

The Water View room category overlook Crescent Lake and the Boardwalk, and tend to be more lively in the evening hours. These Water View rooms are sometimes referred to as Preferred Views. A Variable View is usually used in conjunction with discounted rooms and means you won't have a guaranteed view because of the discount.

WHAT ABOUT THE CONCIERGE ROOMS AND GARDEN SUITES?
The BoardWalk boasts Concierge Service and beautiful Garden Suites, in addition to its already well-appointed rooms.

Concierge service offers deluxe rooms with added amenities such as: robes, TV speaker in the bathroom, deluxe nightly turn down service, continental breakfast buffet, English style tea in the afternoon, and wine, cheese, and cordials in the evening. Most rooms are on the 4th floor. NOTE: Concierge rooms are NOT designated as smoking or nonsmoking.Concierge level guests have their own private lounge and private access. Epcot's IllumiNations can be seen nightly from the balcony in the Concierge Lounge.

The Concierge Lounge "Innkeeper's Club " hours of service are: Continental Breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m.; Refreshments from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Tea and Sweets from 3 to 4:30 p.m.; Wine and Cheese Selections from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and Cordials and Desserts from 7 to 9 p.m.

The Garden Suites are designed for Honeymooners but can easily accommodate a family of four and are two stories. There are 14 Garden Suites and all but three have private entrance courtyards. The three that do not, have private balconies. The yards are separated by white picket fences that are about 3 feet tall. Each of the front yards are individually landscaped. At the gated entrance to the yard, there is a small decorative bird house with the room number on it. These front yards lead to the one and only entry way of the suite, and are being grown into manicured rose gardens.

There is a living room on the first floor and a bedroom loft on the second floor. The first floor has a TV, 1/2 bath, bread bar, and a queen size sofa bed. The 2nd level loft, in most cases, overlooks the lower level which creates a very large, vaulted ceiling effect. The three with private balconies have more of an actually separate second level. Either way, the second level features an elevated King size bed. Upstairs you will also find an addition TV, and a full bath with a giant Jacuzzi tub that will easily accommodate two people. There is even a third mini TV for viewing while in the Jacuzzi tub.

WHAT ARE THE ROOM PRICES?
Just like the other WDW hotels, there are Value Season, Regular Season, Peak Season and Holiday Season rates. Rates begin at $289 a night. These are regular rate prices and do not include the 6% Florida Sales Tax nor the 11% county resort tax. Rates are based on double occupancy. No charge for children under 17 years old when in the same room as the adults. For each adult over 2 there is a $25 per night charge per person. Maximum of 5 persons per room.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BOARDWALK VILLAS AND THE BOARDWALK INN?
Disney's BoardWalk Villas are a timeshare resort that are part of the Disney Vacation Club. Disney's BoardWalk Inn is a Disney hotel in the "Deluxe Resort" category.

WHAT ARE THE SERVICES, FACILITIES AND AMENITIES AT THE BOARDWALK INN?
The Boardwalk Inn provides many services, in addition to those normally provided at a resort, are: business center, concierge service, express check-out, 24-hour front desk, disabled-accessible rooms, laundry/valet services, meeting and banquet facilities, valet parking ($7 per day/car), and 24 hour room service.

HOW DO I GET TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL PLACES AS WDW?
You picked a great resort because it is all about Location! Location! Location!

Epcot is a pleasant 5 minute stroll from the Boardwalk Inn. Or if you choose you can catch a Friendship boat from the boat dock right outside on the Boardwalk. The boats leave every 20 minutes and those on the right side of the dock will bring you to the International Gateway, right at Epcot's ticket gates. I highly recommend walking to Epcot. Nine times out of 10 it is much faster than taking the Friendship boat.

To reach the Disney-MGM Studios you have two options. You could take a leisurely 15 to 20 minute stroll along the approximately one-mile long path along the waterway connecting the Epcot resort area with the Disney-MGM Studios. Or you can take the Friendship boat from the left side of the boat dock on the Boardwalk, making stops at the Yacht and Beach Club dock and then the Swan and Dolphin dock before continuing on to the Studios. Don't worry if you just miss the boat and don't want to wait the 20 minutes for the next one, and don't want to walk all the way to the Studios. Just walk on over to the Swan and Dolphin dock and pick up the boat there.

There are direct buses in front of the hotel to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, and Downtown Disney (with stops at the Marketplace and the West Side). You can connect to other Disney resorts from either the Marketplace or from the parks.

I KNOW MY ROOM WILL HAVE BEDS AND A BATHROOM, BUT WHAT ELSE?
The rooms at the BoardWalk Inn have been thoughtfully stocked with many extras. The closet contains an ironing board, iron, portable crib, small safe for your valuables, and hangers. Hair dryers and make-up mirrors are mounted on the wall in the vanity area. Alarm clocks are provided so you can be the first one in the parks.

WHAT ABOUT A REFRIGERATOR?
You can request a small refrigerator for your room for $10.60 per day (includes tax). The refrigerators are handy for snacks, sodas, and baby supplies.

I HAVE TO HAVE MY MORNING COFFEE!
The Belle Vue Room serves a continental breakfast from 6:30 - 10 a.m.: Croissants, muffins, bagels, danish, yogurt, cookies, toast, coffee, tea, cereal, juice and fruit are on the menu.

There is also a cart on the Boardwalk called Boardwalk Joe's that serves freshly brewed coffee, cappuccino, espresso, flavored coffees and assorted pastries. Its hours are subject to change seasonally.

The Boardwalk Bakery offers you an early morning opportunity to see a "Bun-rise" while having your java fix. Cappuccino and espressos, as well specially made fresh baked goods are offered. Open at 7:00 am (hours subject to change seasonally)

IS THERE A LOUNGE IN THE HOTEL WHERE I CAN RELAX AND HAVE A DRINK?
Yes, the Belle Vue Room is located on the Boardwalk Inn side of the complex. There is a balcony that offers a view of Crescent Lake. Hours are 5 p.m. until midnight. (You can also get your morning coffee/tea here.)

The Belle Vue Room has an excellent selection of premium scotch!

WHAT ARE THE DINING OPTIONS?
Dining options at the BoardWalk Inn are endless. Not only are Epcot and all of its wonderful restaurants just a stroll away, but you also have all of the dining options at the Swan/Dolphin, and the Yacht and Beach Club right there also. The BoardWalk itself boasts many great dining opportunities.

The ESPN Club is a sports club with sports aplenty on the TVs that dot the establishment. The food is standard sports club fare such as burgers, sandwiches, drinks, appetizers, and desserts. The atmosphere is fun and inviting to families for lunch and dinner.

The BoardWalk Bakery offers baked goods, espressos, and cappuccinos.

Spoodles offers Mediterranean cuisine in a lively atmosphere. Breakfast and dinner are served. Mediterranean food sounds a little exotic, but even the pickiest of eaters find something to satisfy them here. Open 7:30 am to 11:00 am and 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 P.M.

Spoodles also has a Pizza Take Out window on the Boardwalk. Open noon to midnight.

Seashore Sweets serves hand-dipped ice cream, salt water taffy, candy, chocolate and cookies. Open 1 p.m. to midnight.

The Flying Fish Cafe presents diners with fresh selections of seafood and steaks. There is an open kitchen there you can watch the chefs work their magic. A great place for a special meal. The Flying Fish is only open for dinner hours. Open Sunday through Thursday 5:30 to 10:00 P.M. Open Friday and Saturday 5:30 to 10:30 P.M.

Big River Grille and Brewing Works is a must for any ale or micro-brew fan. Big River has tempting selections of beer breads, sausages, gourmet burgers and salads. A lighthearted atmosphere for a casual meal. Open 11:30 a.m. to midnight. Dine in or out on the Boardwalk.

Leaping Horse Libations at Luna Park is a great place for a sandwich or hot dog. Of course, room service is available 24 hours a day.

WHAT ABOUT NIGHT SPOTS ON THE BOARDWALK?
Atlantic Dance is the place to go for music and dancing. Jellyrolls features nonstop live entertainment on two dueling pianos as you join in the fun with singing and surprises. ESPN Club keeps the excitement of the games alive all night with updates and prize giveaways. And don't forget the Boardwalk itself with the live entertainers who invite you to participate in the magical silliness. Check here for more information about the Boardwalk at night.

WHERE CAN I BUTY A T-SHIRT AND SOME TOOTHPASTE?
Dundy's Sundries is located just off the lobby on the Villa side. It stocks resort logo merchandise and some basic necessities and toiletries. Character Carnival, Screen Door General Store, and Thimbles and Threads are all located on the Boardwalk . The three stores comprise one giant store and feature character merchandise, clothing for the whole family, as well as groceries and snacks. Wyland Galleries showcases contemporary, environmental art on the BoardWalk . Sports fans can find ESPN merchandise at the ESPN Club.

Help! I've run out of clean clothes! Can you point me in the direction of the laundry room??
On the 3rd floor of the Boardwalk Inn there is a laundry room accessible only to Inn guests via their room keys. There are three washing machines, one commercial sized washing machine, and six clothes dryers. Each of these machines costs $2 a load to run. Additionally there is a television, a large table on which to fold your laundry, two chairs, three rolling laundry baskets, a telephone and a vending machine selling laundry supplies (Tide, Cheer, Bounce (2 sheets), Clorox 2) at a cost of $1 per box.

CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A BABYSITTER FOR THE EVENING?
The Boardwalk's Harbor Club --a supervised activity center for children 4-12 -- is closed indefinitely. Guests may use the Sandcastle Club at the Yacht and Beach Club on the other side of the lake. Visit our Childcare FAQ for more info.

A private sitting service, Kids' Night Out, also provides baby-sitting services at WDW. For rates and more information, they can be reached at (407) 827-5444.

WHAT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES CAN BE FOUND ON THE BOARDWALK?
The Boardwalk offers a wide range of activities that differs from day to day. Seasonally, you will find midway games, jugglers, entertainers, hand wax molds, food vendors, magic shows. Bike riding along the Boardwalk is a popular past time. At night, the night clubs and restaurants spring to life and bring with them music, laughter, and people.

One of the favorite activities for families and groups are renting the Surrey Bikes. You can pedal your way around Crescent Lake , over to the Beach/Yacht Club , Swan/Dolphin. Surrey bikes are no longer allowed on the walkway to Epcot's World Showcase. Rentals are available on the Boardwalk itself.


TELL ME ABOUT THE POOLS AND OTHER RECREATION OPTIONS
The BoardWalk's themed swimming area is known as Luna Park , and features a large pool with a 200 foot water slide called "Keister Coaster . The pool area has the theming of a turn of the century carnival. Even the water slide looks like a wooden roller coaster. There are playful elephants to shower you before entering the pool. The play area for the resort, Luna Park Crazy House , is also located here.

There is a pool-side bar, Leaping Horse Libations, conveniently located next to Luna Park for drinks and snacks. You can't miss it, the bar is shaped like a giant carousel.

Swimming tubes, noodles, and towels are available at a stand near the pool, where they also check resort ID.

There are two quiet pools: one is located within the Inn's Rose Garden Courtyard, the other next to Community Hall in the Villa area.

Muscles and Bustles Health Club offers free weights, Life Fitness, Stairmaster and Cybex exercise equipment. Also available are: steam room, sauna, tanning bed and massage therapies. The health club is located near Luna Park and is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. (The following prices are valid as of 2/03) Membership fee is $15 for a 1 Day Membership; $25 for an Individual Length of Stay Membership; and $45 for a Family Length of Stay Membership. One hour Personal Training Sessions are $50. Tanning sessions are 15 minutes long and are $10 per session. Massage therapies include Swedish Relaxation, Deep Tissue and Aromatherapy and prices begin at $50 for 25 minutes. For more information, call the Fitness Center directly at 939-2370.

An Epcot resort jogging trail map is available from the Health Club.

Community Hall offers a wide range of equipment to pursue just about any recreational inclination. Inquire about fishing trips (there's even one just for kids! $30) at the Hall. Community Hall is on the Villa side and rents bikes ($7.00/hour), tubes, noodles, videos ($3.18), and tennis rackets ($5.30).. You can also play ping pong, croquet and more. The paths around the BoardWalk Inn and Villas make for a beautiful run or walk. Marine activities are only as far as the Yacht Club harbor. Bicycles are a great way to motor around the Crescent Lake area and see all of the hotels and their grounds.

There are two lighted surfaced Tennis Courts located on the Villa side of the resort. Courts are free to Boardwalk Inn and Villa guests. Make reservations at Community Hall. Rental equipment is available.

If you are hooked on fishing, be sure to inquire about the guided fishing excursions!

HOW DO I USE VALET PARKING?
Simply drive your vehicle to the front of the resort and a Cast Member will them park it for you. Valet parking is $7 per car for the day, even if you are staying at the Boardwalk. Don't forget to tip the valet (both the one who takes your car and the one who brings it back to you - $1-2 is recommended) When you need to retrieve your vehicle, simply give the valet your slip of paper you were given when the car was parked, and your car will promptly be delivered to the front of the hotel.

DOES THE BOARDWALK INN HAVE A SECURITY GATE?
Yes, the Boardwalk complex has a guarded security gate. Upon initial arrival, simply explain to the guard you are checking in. Once you have checked in, your resort room key will also serve to open the security gates (pull on the right side to activate the guest gate).

My child is celebrating a birthday during our stay. Is there something special we can do at the Boardwalk?

Birthday party facilities are available at the Boardwalk Inn/Villa complex. Parties can include decorated party room, personalized cake, hot dogs and hamburgers, chips and sodas, balloons, candy, and swimming at Luna Park and free video arcade. Check with Cast Members at Community Hall.

DOES THE BOARDWALK HAVE EPCOT FIREWORKS CRUISES?
Yes, you can rent a Pontoon to enjoy Epcot's IllumiNations ! This can also be a birthday cruise and will include a driver, cake, balloons, lights snacks and of course the fireworks. For full details on the cruises visit the IllumiNations page.

I HEARD THAT NORMAL WDE PARK CASUAL ATTIRE IS FROWNED UPON AT THE BOARDWALK. IS THIS TRUE?
This could not be further from the truth. WDW is a family vacation resort. Casual attire is the norm and accepted all over WDW. In fact, the only restaurant in all of WDW with a "dress code" is Victoria and Albert's in the Grand Floridian. You will find some people dress up for various occasions, including dinner, but most guests are here on vacation and to relax! Your casual attire is most welcome!

HOW DO I FIND THE BOARDWALK INN?
Take I-4 to Exit 67. Take 2nd exit (Epcot Resorts/Disney-MGM Studios). Turn right at 4th traffic signal. The BoardWalk Inn will be on the left.

I WANT THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME, BUT I DON'T WANT TO SPEND A LIFETIME FINANCING IT!
There are many ways to save a few dollars on your accommodations at WDW. Membership in the Magic Kingdom Club or AAA can save you 10-20% at the BoardWalk Inn, depending on the time of year you choose to visit. Annual passholders can save a great deal by visiting during annual passholder specials. Florida residents get a break for living in the same state as the Mouse. Don't forget holidays are the most expensive time to visit, along with most of the summer. Generally, planning your trip during the off-season can save you money right off the bat.

TIPS ON MAKING THE MOST OF THE BOARDWALK INN
The Boardwalk resort complex has been beautifully landscaped ; be sure to stroll the grounds. Not only can you find colorful flower beds, but you can also enjoy quiet surroundings, fountains and benches.

With a fresh cup of morning coffee, there are many wonderful places to sit and enjoy the view -- Luna Park, the quiet pools, the balcony off the lobby, or even the Boardwalk itself.

Guests cannot access the Boardwalk from the garden and quiet pool areas. You have to go into the lobby first. This is to ensure guests privacy and security.

If you're running late and miss the boat for MGM, don't worry! The BoardWalk is the first stop on the loop of the boat--you can easily catch it at the Swan/Dolphin, which is the last stop.

There are refillable mugs available at the resort. They are red and white with Donald and Daisy Duck on them. The mugs can be purchased at Leaping Horse Libations pool bar and Seashore Sweets.

Jellyrolls charges a cover charge even if you are a resort guest.

Pocket pagers are available for rent; 24 hour notice is required. Check with the Front Desk for details.

Parking - - there is a HUGE lot (actually, two HUGE lots separated by the drive up to the front entrance) where you park your car. It's a long walk from your room to the car, unless you want to pay for valet parking, (give the CM a tip for putting it in the valet section and tip him again for going to get it).

Question on reservation?? HELP!

my reservation came in the mail today- I booked Concierge, but the reservation does not state that- room type is listed as variable. When I called to check, they said I was booked for concierge--but why does it not say this??Should be concerned that I will have a problem at check in?? Thank you

It always says that - I call every time also to verify that we're booked in concierge. For some reason, the confirmations don't specify concierge or a specific view. For instance, we stay in a deluxe concierge room which has a Boardwalk view, but it's always listed as variable with no indication of concierge. Don't worry about - you're in concierge.
