It was also nice just to visit, and my wife even said there's just an intangible "something" about BW that makes it feel like our happy place.
Glad to hear you like AKL, never been. Enjoy the rest of your trip. And I understand the feeling of the BW. I get it too.

Hello. So I am going to go ahead and book the boardwalk! I have a couple questions. I am booking boardwalk view. If I was to make a request, close to flying fish, that would put me close to the lobby,right? And is the only exit to the boardwalk thru the lobby.? Or are there multiple exits?thanks!!!!!

Checked in today for a quick trip and we had a deluxe club room booked. Imagine my shock when the CM gives me our KTTW and states we received an upgrade. But he didn't tell us what we were upgraded to. We got the Sonora VP Suite. I have no idea how or why, but what a dose of Pixie Dust! I took a bunch of pics with my good camera so I'll need to upload those after we get home. All the CM said was we were in the right place at the right time. I've never received an upgrade before.

Best part is there was Training today at the Bakery. Tonite we could see in as the lights were on and it reminded me of the old Main St Bakery. Definitely looking awesome! 6:30am tomorrow! Can't wait to hopefully get a peek inside tomorrow.

Congratulations! I'm going to leave it to the room category location experts to answer your question more precisely. If you're making a request and you book a STD View room it could be of the parking lot/canal or of the Garden area/Epcot and I think that some of these rooms could be closer to the lobby, but I could be wrong. Certainly, whatever category you do book, maybe you could just add "Close to lobby, please"

To get out to the BW, we would go down the elevators that are near Belle Vue Lounge off the lobby and down the stairs to the ground floor.

Great to see you all the way over here from CR and what a fantastic upgrade. How many days are you staying? Now you've stayed in both the CR and BWI suites - any others? We're looking forward to all your photos when you get home. If you get some of the new bakery, I could post them to the first page

Just using your post as a reminder to all that a few days ago I posted all new Sonora Suite photos on the first page. SwirlyGirly was there recently and emailed some to me, but they don't include the kitchen area.

Just got back early this morning. LOVED LOVED LOVED our stay at BWV! I think I might have a new favorite! We had a 1BR on the 2nd floor right above The Screen Door, so very close to the lobby. What a gorgeous lobby! Off to work now for the day but will post more later.

So excited, checked flights today and was able to fly out cheaper on Saturday may 25th so instead of the 27th we are adding two days to our stay at BWI. So my countdown is now under 30 days..I really hope that DH and I love the resort, we have read such wonderful things

For anyone with Twitter, @TouringPlans just posted a bunch of Boardwalk Bakery photos. They even have a special entrance just for refillable mug refills.

https://twitter.com/touringplans/sta...29117418479617

Peek inside (including guy with no shirt):

New menu:

They also posted pics of some of the food, pastries, etc. They also have gluten free baby cakes items now, as well as a quiche and soup of the day.

Still no indoor seating though!

Glad you enjoyed it so much!! We've had a few different BW view 1BRs, but not that location yet. Was it loud from the performers or anything?

So, I was kinda hoping for a construction worker type dude with no shirt. Not exactly. Thanks for the links to the photos. I might rethink getting a refillable mug now. We bought them for two BW stays but found it a pain to get refills. With a dedicated entrance to refills, might not be such a pain.

The first few nights we didn't get back to the room til 1am & the BW was quiet. The last night we were back by 10:30 and it was loud. Everything shuts down on the BW at 11 & it did quiet down then a little, but every now & then we'd hear a group walking by being loud, up until about 2am. It didn't bother me though, we keep the bathroom fan on for white noise anyway!

Mary T I would have come up to take a peek at your suite had I known you were in there LOL!!!
