Yes, Leaping Horse Libations reopened when the pool reopened a couple weeks ago. They do have a limited menu of sandwiches and snacks.

Thanks so much for this. I had been checking on-line and nothing. Called the theme park shopping line and voila! The only thing was I couldn't get them embroidered/personalized. Now, I just have to figure out how to get her name on them and keep it hidden until we arrive.

I have a question about getting out of the resort and going to Epcot.

Is there an exit down near ESPN on the side maybe that you are allowed out like there is at BC?

We are staying Club level so if anyone has any tips that would be great.

There is a beautiful walkway that connects to the boardwalk. You can walk to EP just by strolling down the boardwalk past ESPN Zone. You can also take a boat... The boat pick-up/dock is near the bakery. It's an awesome location!!

I don't think that there is an exit door that opens directly unto the Boardwalk from the guest rooms near ESPN or any of the restaurants on that side. I hope someone can show me that I'm wrong, but the only door that we found that opened on that side of the resort was close to center section, near the Flying Fish restaurant.

That's what I thought. When we used to stay at BWV it didn't matter if we had to go out the lobby because we were headed in that direction.

Just trying to not back track if we are down at the other end of the Inn near Epcot.

Yes it is an awesome location. This will be our 4th stay at the BW but our 1st for the Inn side of the resort. We love the BW.

There are two graduation mouse ears this year. I bought one for my DD when DH and I was there earlier this month. One has the ears on top of of the mortar board and those CANNOT be embroidered. One has a mini mortar board between the ears and it CAN be embroidered. We could only find the first at MK, but we found both at Epcot. I got the one that could be embroidered and had DD's first name embroidered on it. They are dark blue with a gold tassle and gold "Class of 2013" lettering. I chose to put DD's name in white because her school colors are blue and white. So, you might want to call back and make sure they know there is one version that can be embroidered. DD says that she is planning to where it everywhere when we go back in August.

You are correct. While it's kind of annoying when you're trying to leave from that end of BWI, I liked that it wasn't opened up to lots of people just wandering in from the boardwalk. It was very peaceful in the gardens located within the walls (so to speak).

We did book a HC room as our DD uses a wheelchair. I am curious if any one has information on the wheelchair accessible rooms? We booked a preferred location.

I was wondering where they are located. I booked a preferred location, maybe a water view? In the past we have stayed at PoP, CBR, CSR, Movies and WL. All of the HC rooms had a king size bed and we are a family of 4. They had to give us an adjoining room..... I am hoping the villas have enough room for my DD to move in her chair. We are so excited to stay at BWV! We are going on points! DD picked the resort, she loves that area! I know she will be ok in the roll in shower as every resort we stayed at in the past was great! Is there an elevator? The pics are beautiful! Any other info you have would be wonderful

Hello! If you booked a Preferred View (PV) you will most likely get a pool view or a garden view room. The Boardwalk Views are the ones who usually have the Lake View or "water view". There is only ONE elevator and it is near the Lobby. Did you book a 1-Bedroom or a Deluxe Studio? The 1-BDRM will be more spacious and easier to move around. That would be the smallest room size I would book for our family when we bring our youngest daughter. I hope you love the resort... our DD12 is also in a wheelchair and it is a favorite of ours.

We stay in a 2br. I have an adult son in a wheelchair. We find the living room to be roomy enough. We do have the coffee table removed from the room. We call housekeeping and they send someone up to remove it. I also rent a lift recliner for Dson from a local DME and everyone still gets around with no problems. BWV is our favorite location to stay but BLT has the best living room for Dson and a awesome kitchen.
