Should have added that we usually stay in a deluxe room so like the above post said it is guaranteed a BW view. We have stayed every year at BW CL since 2005 so a couple of times when we have not stayed in a deluxe room we requested a BW fiew. You know what though. If we did not get it, the Boardwalk is just a few steps away

I think I'm confused about how the Boardwalk is laid out...are there seperate buildings? (I'm used to requesting a specific building at other Disney resorts) If I book a standard room can I request to be as close to the main lobby as possible?

It's just one big happy building. With hallways from the Twilight Zone. People complain about the halls going on forever. But I've been to other resort with several building and at least at Boardwalk you're indoors.

I also saw somewhere that the pool with the clown slide is only for BWV guests?

Ask for view of the quiet pool, that is if you're staying on the inn side. Very peaceful, beautiful. You have the fountain, the roses, the pool, etc. sometimes a view of illuminations.

Or is standard and garden considered different? I can't remember. When we go standard we always get view of quiet pool. Were we just lucky?

They don't have a Garden View booking anymore. Standard View can be of the garden, pool or parking lot. CL STD (non-suite) rooms are the same way - can be a BW, pool or garden view, unless you're in a Deluxe room which are only BW views.

Pool view sounds perfect! Thanks for the advice, did you have a balcony?

Not sure if anyone has posted more up-to-date info about the pool refurb yet, but we are here right now and there is a golf cart taking people back and forth to Stormalong Bay from the sidewalk area behind Community Hall. The refurb started Monday and we had no problems catching a ride to and from the Beach Club yesterday.

Also, we booked a standard view 1 BR on our points and I requested "high floor, across from bus stop" and that's exactly what we got. Room 4117 looks right out on the bridge and stream leading into the resort and we have an unobstructed view of Illuminations every night.
