I did OCI for BWI/CL this past March. I was just curious about the process. The only difference with not doing OCI was that my credit card information was already in their system so I didn't have to give them my card. Other than that, there was no difference or advantage. We were still taken up to the CL check-in where we were given our key and paperwork. If I hadn't liked the room location, I could have just walked right back to the Innkeeper's Club check-in desk to try to resolve it.

Whether you do OCI or not, the room assignor will still see your requests that are in your reservation. However, there are no twin beds. Perhaps you meant two queens? Most rooms have two queens and a few have one king. But the king would only be assigned to one or two person occupancy and/or with a child in a crib/PNP.

When you check-in, just ask if your room is close to the lounge and has an Illuminations view. Good luck!

I have a friend who flew out of Newark last night and wasn't able to check-in at WL until 0230. I do hope your flight takes off soon. It's cruel to do that to people going to WDW!

Thank you so much, yes I did mean two queens, I don't want to share a bed with DD . I may do online check-in as I want to ask them to be discreet about my booking for the Tomorrowland Terrace Desert Party which I have book to celebrate DD's 21st .

These airlines have no idea how unruly passengers who need to get to WDW can get! Let us know when you've landed safely - your ticker has no time left!

I don't want to share a bed with my DD either (it's mutual). Other than handing you your itinerary (which BWI didn't give us in March, but I had printed my own at home), there shouldn't be any mention of any of your bookings. If they do give you an itinerary, just don't show it to your DD and she won't know. Congratulations to your DD on her 21st birthday. What a milestone!

Sounds fun, except running for th ADR. I enjoy those empty buses to the parks really early in the AM, especially when you have a talkative, rumor sharing bus driver. Another extra magic from WDW.

Is this a standard studio on cash through Disney Reservation Center or a standard studio through DVC Member Services? They are different.

I am renting points for garden/ pool studio... Is it far from main pool? Lobby?

We always loved visiting Boardwalk so I figured it's time we stay there!!

The standard DVC points studio will be along the front drive. You might request near the elevator or near a stairwell to get you to the pool more easily.

The garden/pool studio on points are around the pools and along the Village Green area (the grassy area between the BWI and BWV along the boardwalk). These are not BW view. You can also request near the elevator to get to the pool or near a stairwell to take the stairs down to the pool.

The BWV only has one elevator bank the come up from the lobby area kind of between the Luna Park pool and the leisure (quiet) pool.

We have switched our reservation from Poly CL to BWI CL!!!! I am pretty scared of the clown slide and it has kept me from booking here before, but I'm ready to face my fears!!! Oh, the thought of my children being spit out by that clown....

Oh well, do the standard CL rooms all look out over the Boardwalk??? What views are options?? TIA!
