Today we are expecting an offer on our house. Keeping our fingers crossed and being cautiously optimistic since we've been burned before.
Good luck!

Thanks.
Not an owner, but have just returned from there & having one other previous stay I personally like upper floor quiet pool view. Keep in mind there are a lot of big trees in the open areas at BWV so any potential view could be partial. I like the quiet pool view because it's peaceful & offers potential views of the canal & DHS.

Thanks HL. That sounds right up our alley!

Yes Jimmy, I was surprised about our cruise. So many people love RCI, I thought we would too. We may do it again if the smoking policy changes. We got used to the food and how to order it to improve it and make the meals more tasty. It was a learning cruise, that is for sure!

We are one of those BWV owners and I have to agree with Horselover...quiet pool is one of our favorite locations at BWV. Not only is it relatively quiet but it provides a nice view of the canal with the Friendship boats and Tower of Terror right across the canal. At night we could even hear the Fantasmic music and got to the point where we knew exactly when it would end and wait to hear the big applause.

Another advantage of that location is that you save several steps on the walk to DS.

Thanks Granny. Calling MS now to put in the request.

Ask for the Village Green if you can't get Boardwalk view.

We're here at BWV right now in a Boardwalk view studio right above the shops on the second floor. we have a HUGE balcony but it is enclosed. Great if the weather was bad, not quite as great now when the weather is beautiful. We have to stand to actually see the boardwalk view out there.
But we love the room location. I'd also ask for close to the elevator (there is only one!) if you're not going to get Boardwalk view.

You're all quiet this weekend!

We're here! Not VWL but BWV for Food and Wine festival. Having a great time eating ourselves silly at Epcot. Love the fishermen's pie, cheese plate and choc lava cake at Ireland. Add the cheese soup from Canada right nextdoor and my meal is done. The cranberry slushie cosmo from France is to die for, especially in this heat! Sunny and high 80s every day.

Haven't been to our beloved lodge yet but will try to get there today or tomorrow. I need an eye glass case from the store there that isn't available anywhere else at Disney from what we can see.

We are still missing our Topaz very much but have started to talk about getting a puppy after the holidays. Anyone here own a Dachshund or know anything about them from experience?

I agree that drink was yummy! Be sure to try the Belgian Waffles. One of the best things I ate all week.

Have a wonderful trip.

needing a little moose dust for luck!

Hi Groupies!

I consider myself a very blessed and lucky person but this week I could use some extra "moose dust" from my groupie pals. Every year since the Walt Disney World Moms Panel began I have submitted an application to be one of their online panelists. This year I made it to Round 2 of the selection process. I am so excited!!

This week we find out if we have made it to round 3. While I know that the odds are stacked against me, I sure would love to have the opportunity to work on the 2011 Moms Panel. If you have some "moose dust" to spare, could you send it my way? If I am selected I would get to join some of you for the groupies meet in December. Wouldn't that be cool?!

Thanks!
Jill

Moose dust coming, your way, Jill! Keep us posted and let us know how you do.

Enjoy your trip, Inkmahm! Have never had one of those cranberry thingies. Is it sweet or tart? Sounds like you are having wonderful weather! Enjoy your trip!

Don't you just love WD's countdown? I love it because when he posts his count, I know that I'll be there 3 days before him! Keep up the count WD!

Definitely! That's so cool. I would love to be part of that panel, and have tried three years now... and three years it's been a no go. Last year's token male is now part of our Dad's Club thread, and it's cool to know someone with that experience now. Hope you make it Jill!
