Thank you,

I am quite positive there is only a DVD player in the 1BR LR, just got back from there and have stayed at BWV over 30 times. But if you want you can move the DVD player from the LR to the BR, the connections are all color coded and it's easy as pie. However if you wanted 2 DVD players in the room, sadly you are out of luck. I do think there should be one in both the LR and BR, but unfortunately that's not the way it is.

Here is a pic of the shower. They redid the rooms since this pic was taken, so the tiles are different, but the size and shape of the shower is still the same:

PolyAddict, glad you mentioned the CL lounge before room readiness. Last time we stayed CL at BWI (January of this year), the CM downstairs did not offer the lounge before our room was ready (approx. 2:30pm when we arrived), and we had to ask. By the time we walked upstairs, checked in and poured lemonades, our room was ready! I was thinking that someone new to either WDW or CL may not know the lounge is an option before rooms are ready. Also glad to hear you enjoyed the garden view CL room. We always request BW view, and now I know not to be too disappointed if that doesn't work out sometime. Thanks for the report!
I wished ours had been ready that quick, it would have been perfect but it was nice to just have access to the lounge Just so I am certain, if we stay there in the future, you cannot book at CL BW view right?

What's there not to love?! It seems to be a big improvement and it makes you wonder why they didn't do it sooner. I love how happy all the CMs look in Jack Spence's photos.

Yes and No... No, you can't book a STD CL BWV room, you can only request it. However, you can book a Deluxe room and all ten have a BWV, but five are not on the CL (4th) floor, five of the ten are on the 3rd floor.

No problem at all, just be careful bringing up snakes on the DIS. And, don't even think of bringing up snakes, tipping and bed bugs all in one post

I'm finally getting a minute to sit down & write a mini review of BWV! We returned early Friday morning, and are so sad to be home. I LOVED BWV! It's definitely on my favorites list. We were right around the corner from the lobby, on the same floor, overlooking the BW. I couldn't have picked a better villa! All the CMs were super nice. The only glitches were that our room keys didn't work when we 1st tried them, and we couldn't find the on/off button for the quiet pool hot tub! LOL! The BW itself was noisy at night until 11pm, after that it was just random groups of people being loud now & then, not constant. The BW was a lot of fun, and there are plenty of places to refill mugs & to eat. The walk to Epcot is super short, we did it several times. Boat transportation was very frequent, buses were hit or miss like at any resort.

We were chosen to be in the AK Jammin' Jungle parade in AK, that was such fun & probably a once in a lifetime experience! We also ran into Ross Lynch (Austin Moon from Disney's Austin & Ally) twice - once in AK & then at dinner at GF Café. Lots of little things happened too that we call pixie dust, it was just a great trip.

Boma & Kona breakfast were divine as usual. ESPN dinner was so-so (as usual lol!) I generally don't eat as ESPN, I don't like the food or atmosphere, but it was pouring & half of our group was begging us to come. Once we got there we realized why - another girlfriend who wasn't able to join us on this trip showed up as a surprise! GF Café dinner was excellent, Tusker House lunch good too. Mama Melrose was surprisingly good, it gets a lot of negative reviews on here. I would definitely eat there again.

Sadly, I have no ticker. I'm planning for October & December, and maybe a quick trip this summer, if I think I can stand the heat & humidity. Airfare isn't cooperating right now with times or prices, so I'll just have to wait it out. But I will definitely be looking to stay at BWV again sometime soon!

The villas have coffee makers and the Inn has the single cup brewers that use pods.

BWI...quick question

Do all the BWI rooms have the sofa bed in them? Or just some....also do they all have either a balcony or patio.

We just upgraded to club level for our July 14th-19th stay..SOOO EXCITED!!!!
