Thanks.....now I really can't wait to get the TiW and use it .

This is just how we feel about TIW. We like to eat dessert in the club level lounge, not with every lunch and dinner, so TIW allows us to only purchase what we want to eat and not feel obligated to get something we don't. Total flexibility!

Candace: I'm in the throes of getting ready to leave for our FL trip this week, so I think I'm late congratulating you on booking The Innkeeper's Club

So, I have read through all available information and have decided that I would like a room with an Epcot view (but not over the Epcot walkway), inside the secured doors, and not right next to the lounge....

Seems like a lot of requests...would I be best to just give that request to IPO and have them figure that one out, or is there a way to say that better?

I agree . We are booked for our first Disney cruise in July 2013 with WDW stays before and after and I'm trying to squeeze in a quick trip this December as July is too far away .

Actually, I'll go a different route. Don't get me wrong, the location is fantastic. The combination of being able to walk to Epcot, quick boat to DHS, and the dining options available between BW, BC, YC, Swan/Dolphin, and again Epcot, can't be beat. But you could get that from any of the "Epcot" resorts.

The Boardwalk just has a certain feel to it that is really special. When we're walking on (or better yet, sitting on our balcony overlooking) the Boardwalk, we know we're on vacation. It's relaxing, quaint, energetic (when you want it to be), etc., all in good ways. The early morning view of Crescent Lake is incredible.

When we were on our recent trip to the Beach Club, and walked over to the Boardwalk one time for lunch and other time for dinner, we really felt like we were "home."

I have a question for those who go during F & W.

We have always been Polynesian fans. I stayed at the Boardwalk in Feb with a friend and loved it!
I'm going with DH Nov 10-16, staying at the Boardwalk (his first time).
With the F & W going on, will the resort be extremely busy and noisy?

I'm thinking I shouldn't have booked his first stay during this time. We can't change the dates.

I think the Boardwalk itself will be quite full, but I don't find the resort to be noisy at all because of Food and Wine. If you plan to spend any time at the F&W the BW is an amazing place to stay, it's so nice to walk over there at any time to sample the wonderful food and drinks. I don't think I have ever really felt the BW to be any noisier/busier at any time of the year.

Totally agree, I don't think the F&W has any impact at all on the noise level at the BW.
