pumpkinfish, that's a wonderful story and I love your photos. It's difficult to describe how amazing a Boardwalk view room is in the morning. So calm and peaceful. I would have neve guessed that before staying there, but our BWI mornings are some of our favorites at Disney. I could sit out on that balcony for hours (actually, I can't - I have an energetic husband and three very active boys - but that sounds like a nice idea!)

][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hi! My name is Babs and I am a Boardwalkaholic. I am addicted to this thread and all things Boardwalk. At first I was too shy and afraid to stand up and be counted but reading this thread, studying the pictures, and getting to know you...I know I am not alone. Thank you, thank you!!! It is such a relief to know there are more of you out there proud of your addiction. I no longer have to lurk in the shadows reading all the other threads about the other resorts. I am a proud Boardwalkian and I can share my addiction with all of you!!!

That being said...I can't wait to go in November...but I know this thread will keep me strong, informed, in touch, prepared and will give me my daily fix. Keep it comin' this thread is my lifeline...

And only you know how that feels...Thank you!

Is it possible to take pictures from top of the Pool slide?

Once again I was looking at the amazing picutres of the Luna Park Pool area posted by WDWKOOK and I had this idea of something I want to try when I at the Boardwalk this coming August. Once the slide is closed for the evening is it possible that I can walk right up to the top and get some pictures from that area or do you think it's not allowed?

Is the area well lit after the Pool Closes? I should think there might be a chain to keep people from going up the slide after hours when there is no life guard present?

I do like your idea about getting pictures from that vantage point, the pool area is another thing about BWI that I fell in love with as I did my research into the resort.

Absolutely...but as you recall, our Poly check-in was less than magical but I'm willing to give it another go. And it was less than magical because the CM at check-in never gave me a lei, and was kinda indifferent (I am a brat) But I still love the Poly...I know HRH will LOVE BWI!!!!

We are going the other way around now so I hope we aren't disappointed in the Poly after staying at BWI....it's all good..And the garden suites would be perfect for DH and I

Well if I see a chain blocking the entrance then obviously I can't do that, so I guess I will wait and see if this can be done when I am there.

nascargirl - any trip at the BWI CL is so wonderful isn't it, really hope we get to stay there the same time one year. Wish I was going back sooner but never mind .... here's hoping for a heatwave in the UK so at least it'll 'feel' like Florida

questions please regarding the boardwalk area. we want to vist and stroll. Me and my DD17. How much time do you think we should allow? Is it worth visiting during the day or much more enjoyable in the evening? How far a walk is it from HS and Epcot? (looking at making ADR's). Any insight is very helpful. THanks

I hope you have a great time and not sure if know these so just incase here are some last minute tips.

When walking to Hollywood Studios you can walk through the Luna Park pool as a short getting to the walkway.

If you go to the ESPN Club and there is a wait for a table on the dining room side, the booths and high top tables on the bar side always have open seating. That means if a table is available you can walk right up to it and sit down.

The Boardwalk entertainers perform every night from 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM at random locations along the Boardwalk. Also if it's raining or to cold outsude then they will perform in the lobby.

If you purchase something at Boardwalk To Go they don't accept the Disney Dining Plan or the KTTW cards as a method of payment. Only cash and regular credit cards.

The Dundries Sundry's store inside the lobby is now selling Boardwalk logo merchandise such as jackets and etc, so if your interested in items like that then you should go there.

Hello!
We will be arriving in WDW on February 29 and staying through March 6. We will be staying on a standard, club level room at the BWI! We are so excited. We were originally supposed to stay at the Poly, but we wanted to extend our stay and the Poly was not available with our discount code. So, it's off the the BWI! My family cannot wait, BWI is our favorite resort.
We will be traveling over DD's 21st birthday. Do any of you have any tips on something special we could do for her? She is a Disney fanatic and I am so excited that we will be in WDW over her birthday!
Thanks!!
