Hello All!
We will be going back to the BWI in November and are very excited! We booked a standard - club level room. We requested a BW view. I'm just wondering, about how many standard, club level rooms overlook the BW? Just curious to see what our chances might be.
Thanks!!

Luna Park - do they provide towels?

We're leaving in a few days for Boardwalk and I was wondering if there are towels provided at the pool? We have no parks scheduled for arrival day, and are packing our swimsuits in our carry-on so we can spend the afternoon at the pool and not have to wait for the luggage to be delivered, or to wait until our room is ready.

We've done this every trip but have only stayed at the moderates - and they had towels. Anyone know? I don't know if the carry-on will fit under the seat in front of us with four suits AND four towels crammed in!

Also, does anyone know where the campfire takes place at Boardwalk? We're thinking about that on arrival day, or maybe heading to Beach Club for the movie on the beach.

So excited to stay at Boardwalk for our first time!

We're staying at BWV and would like to have our faces painted prior to MNSSHP. We aren't planning on any parks that day so I don't want to use up a day's admission just for face painting at Epcot or HS. I also don't want to be late to the party if the face painter is only there late in the evening. (I sure wish they'd bring face painting back to MK, even if it wasn't the free party painting they used to have, and I had to pay for it.)

TIA for any information!
Did I miss an answer to this? Would also like to know if there is facepainting on the BW? Would love to do this before MNSSHP, too! :-)

I did not see face painting on the boardwalk in April. Face painting can be a transient thing. Maybe they will have it as part of a community hall activity. Have you tried booking a Pirates League appt for 4ish on the party day?

Thanks. My DD isn't interested in Pirate's League or BBB. She just wants one of those swirly butterfly-ish mask type facepaints, the kind that goes all around the eyes and down onto the cheeks. We have decided to just go over to HS for facepaints prior to the party if there isn't anyone doing it on the Boardwalk.

Good idea! You can be sure to get what she wants there. Doesn't appear that MK has face painting until FLE is complete!

Can y'all help me figure out a transportation question? We are staying at BWV in February and were planning on dining at Kona one night, catching Wishes and then heading back. I'm starting to rethink that now that we are flying and will have to rely on disney transport (cabs are out as we have two who need carseats).

My question is, how long does it take to get to the BW from the Poly? Would we be better off taking the monorail to the MK and then fighting the post Wishes crowds on the bus or taking the monorail to Epcot and walking through. Also, how long of a trip do you think it would be?

I am considering scrapping the whole thing and just keeping the kids out late one night at Epcot and hitting Illuminations instead.

I'd love thoughts from past BW guests!

I don't know when Wishes will be showing in February, but keep in mind that Epcot is only open until 9pm. So going back through Epcot is only an option if you can be sure to arrive before 9pm. It is also quite a walk - I am not sure whether I would want to do it with kids after a long day in the parks.

If you want to go via the MK, I would suggest to take the boat from the Poly to the MK and then take the bus. But just as you said, you might end up in the post-Wishes crowds!

The easiest way would be to take a taxi. Just go to the valet people at the lobby exit and they will call a cab for you. The fare should be around 15$.

The taxi should be about a 15 minute trip, both other options might easily take 45 minutes or even longer.

Finally, I think now the greatest advantages of the Boardwalk is how close it is to Epcot. I thought it was so magical to not have to bother with any crowds after Illuminations and instead just let the people rush away while I was leisurely walking to the International Gateway. So, if you are only planning one fireworks evening, I would suggest to go with Epcot to make the most of the resort you are staying at!

Jack Spence has written an extensive piece on AllEars about BWI and BWV and on the BW itself. The details are amazing! He has many photos in his blog - check it out! (There are links on the right side of the page to all the parts of his blog).

I didn't see if anyone answered this. The campfire happens back by the Luna Park Pool. The campfire is just toasting marshmallows. You could easily do both the campfire and the movie. But I'm pretty sure they have a campfire down on the Beach at Beach Club too.
