they have them on line. you can go on the dvc website as a non member. the rooms are what dw calls "rectangle pods". there rectangles stacked side by side. kit,liv,din is in one pod, master bed in another, bedroom in amother. there all the same size boxs. thats the way dvc resorts are set up except okw and the tree houses. we just like the size rooms at okw and its not like your in a box. but, theres alot going on. you have the boardwalk, walk to epcot and the studios if you wanted to. if your swimmers, the pool is great.

once you see how much room you have, and its in your budget, its a push over. trust me, they do not pressure anyone to buy anything. when we took the tour, i told the guy, i have to go home and see if i can afford this. he said no problem, you have my card. i called him a week later and told him what we wanted. he never called us at all. when we took the tour, dd stayed at a play area, she did crafts and had a ball. she didnt want to leave. i thought they brain washed the kid. but its been the best money we ever spent.

That's us. When we talked to the DVC people the 1st question they asked us was do you like staying at the Values. Our answer was yes.

But I might change my mind, can you use points for cruises or Adventures by Disney?

Haven't read all the posts so I don't know what here is repeated. Boardwalk is my home DVC and favorite resort. The rooms are smaller than say Old Key West but they are comparable to other resorts. GREAT LOCATION. Walkways to MGM and EPCOT.

Love the nighttime activities at the BW. Pool is nice. Dining options are good just make sure you have a reservation. I usually hit ESPN for lunch at least once a trip. Counter service options are nonexistent. You have Y/B or S/D nearby for food options.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Is the ESPN a good restaurant...I have been reading that the food is awfull and the atmosphere is not for younger kids but you know ppl are they get on a subject and start ripping it...I am thinking of taking my sons while my wife takes my daughters to CRT..
