I think that Pixarmom posted a photo of the menu. Let me go find it.

Yippee! There is entertainment on the BoardWalk which is lots of fun and little shops to wander in to. Walking to Epcot and DHS is so convenient. You can also eat on the BW, YC/BC and Swolphin. You can also walk to Fantasia Gardens golf. Also, there is a Hess gas station right across the street from BWI, should you need something.
can you walk safely to the hess?

Hi Sandi Knew I could find you here... Did DH repeat the "countdown of sleeps" since then?? Love it!

Have a wonderful time! Happy anniversay!

Hi Kook!!
Janet, you're the best! As you can tell by my text a little while ago, my DH is doing the countdown of sleeps. Every day I get an e-mail at work with the number of sleeps left. Down to 3!

I am so looking forward to BWI. It is a bit of a splurge for me and I'm going to drink it all in! We'll actually spend some time at the resort because DH is not a theme park guy. It will be a much different vacation than those I take with my DD at Pop. It's great how Disney offers something for everyone!

Kook, this thread has been terrific. I so appreciate your keeping it up to date and full of such useful information. You made my planning easy peasy!

Stayed at BWI Feb 9-17 and LOVED it. Had a 5th floor room looking over the garden suites with a fantastic view of IllumiNations.

I am so excited! I just changed our reservation in May from POR to BWI for ten nights. Does a small adult fit on the day bed? Anything I shouldn't miss?

We upgraded to SVCL are all of these rooms on same floor as lounge? What floor is that? Do we have a better chance of not facing the parking lot and having a balcony?

Thanks

Congratulations!

I believe I've read that the BWI daybed isn't intended for adults, but I don't have any personal experience.

There aren't any parking lot views with a CL room. The STD CL room is the only standard-sized CL room you can book. It can be a view of the BW/Crescent Lake or the Gardens/pool/Epcot. You can place a view request in your reservation by emailing the IPO. The STD CL rooms are located on the 4th floor, which is the same floor as the lounge and all rooms will have a balcony.
