So very excited! Just booked our first ever stay in the Epcot area resorts. We will be at the BWI March 4-10. Just the hubby and me. Got an AP discount so that is great! I booked a waterview. Am I correct in understanding that this will overlook the lake and the boardwalk? Any pictures of what our view might be?

I know I'm very limited at last minute here.
Our last trip in Nov 2011 was for my daughters sweet 16 and we are returning in June for my second daughter's sweet 16. I ordered a chocolate glass slipper to be delivered to her at CRT. I'm guessing that would not excite your hubby as much as it did my daughter. It was $15. We also ordered a cake to be delivered to our room. We were club level WL and they handled it all for us. However, I know you are able to order cakes from the cake hotline. "Cake Hotline
at least 24 hours in advance. I would suggest doing it as soon as you
can. Their phone number is: 407-827-2253. You will be sent through a
phone tree and must choose the location and name of your restaurant to
be connected to the right person." This info was given to me yesterday by the IPO for BWI club level. This is a picture of the cake under $50.

This is the glass slipper

Okay, obviously I don't know how to post pictures. If anyone would like to see them, let me know how to post and I will be happy to do so.

Thanks! That looks way more elaborate than I was expecting.
It's funny, we have a King bed at home and I've always felt quite comfortable in the BWV beds. So I can't join your conspiracy

Nope, it's the "flat" pods.... kind of a disk.

They use pods and not K-Cups. The non-DVC (villa) rooms have these:

That's what's so great about WDW - we can't help but feel like little kids when we're there. Grumpy Grandma, who is at Epcot right now posted a while ago that it was empty - I envy you being able to go tomorrow - enjoy!

Yes, a Water View will be of Crescent Lake/BoardWalk. This was our view from CL Room 4261 which was right next to the Flying Fish sign:

You're welcome.

THIS SITE lists pod compatibility. According to the site, all pods between 4-12 grams should fit a Cuisinart.

Early May would be the perfect time to go, but DD is in high school and doesn't get out until the end of June. We went once at that time when I was pregnant with DD and stayed at CSR about 9 months after it opened. I remember we were the only ones in the resort's quiet pool

Have you made any ADRs yet?
