Sorry if this is in the wrong area...


I'm considering renting points for a stay at BWV. If I do that and buy tickets elsewhere, do I bring the tickets to the concierge to have them added to my KTTW card.

Glad to hear BWI Deluxe CL are nicer than BC, we stayed in a Deluxe CL room there last year, and loved it - so this could be even better! It was a LONG hike to the CL lounge at BC so that was a downer. I think at BWI I'd request 3rd floor for the larger balcony - I spend a lot of time out there. Are there stairs anywhere near the CL lounge on the 4th floor - or do you need to go back to the balcony to go up a level?

Thanks for the info!
There are stairs right by the entrance to the lounge, so that is a quick shortcut. No need to go back to the lobby. Or climb balconies, but I think you had a typo.

For the DVC resale, as AirGoofy said, there are brokers you go through, the big two are Timeshare store (better service and lower fees) and Fidelity (more contracts for sale since Disney recommends them to people who ask where they should sell). With either you can expect to pay 1/2 what you would buying from Disney, but unlike a new contract, you can't use the points for cruises or adventures by Disney or any of their other offerings -- just the DVC stays. To us, worth the half off. There is a BUNCH more info in the DVC boards and stickies, but of course always happy to answer questions.

Of course DVC is not for everyone, but if you've already rented points, you know what to expect.

just an fyi: you won't find a BW Villa BW view available for cash (not even DVC member discounted cash). they are only available for point bookings.

according to allears:
"On the 3rd floor of the Boardwalk Inn there is a laundry room accessible only to Inn guests via their room keys. There are three washing machines, one commercial sized washing machine, and six clothes dryers. Each of these machines costs $2 a load to run. Additionally there is a television, a large table on which to fold your laundry, two chairs, three rolling laundry baskets, a telephone and a vending machine selling laundry supplies (Tide, Cheer, Bounce (2 sheets), Clorox 2) at a cost of $1 per box."

Thanks - I remember that from before, that there are no cash BW view villas but for some reason I forgot! There aren't any available thru DVC for my dates, only pool/garden, but the person I rented thru before was willing to waitlist for me. So I might have to email her again & beg, if she has more points!

Buses for the Disney's Hollywood Studios (covering the Epcot Resort Area) will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

Buses for Epcot (Princess Breakfast at Norway) will start running at 7:00-7:15am DAILY.

This information is valid EVERY DAY, and for ALL DISNEY RESORTS serviced by Bus transportation.

These buses are for Breakfasts only, and should not be used for general park access. Always let the driver know where you are going upon boarding the bus. Most times, the driver will be able to take you directly (ie: Contemporary, for Chef Mickey's) but sometimes this is not possible. As such, you should always allow time for a connection when going Resort to Resort. Actual arrival times will vary by location.
~AllEars


Couldn't u still board these ADR buses to arrive at the parks for EMH tho?

I think they are made to order... I got the pork sandwich, and they also asked me if I wanted it cold or warmed up.

I just tried to price out BWI, but they said that it no longer fits 5, I thought it was built like BC/YC/CR/Poly/GF where the couch was also a daybed? It says now that the fifth bed is a trundle like that in POR...so my 6'3 son would no longer fit...have they ever had the sofa turn into a bed or am I completely mistaken?

You'll have the preferred view villas (either Luna Park pool or the leisure pool), but not Boardwalk view. Luna Park can get noisy, so you might want to request the non-themed pool view. You can use the Community Hall while you are there to rent movies or borrow games. Plus activities during the week.
Just wanted to mention that it is possible to get a boardwalk view when trading in via RCI. While I now own at BWV, last May I used my mom's RCI to trade in to a 1-bedroom there. When I called to add names to the reservation I asked what the view would be, figuring it had to be pool/garden. However, I was told we had boardwalk view. I couldn't believe it. And I didn't fully believe it until we actually checked in. The long walk to 5001 was absolutely worth the view. I only have 100 points so will be booking standard view most of the time, but man, that view spoiled us!

There was a daybed in the standard BWI room DH and I were in in March. I played with pulling It out so I could see how it worked. The room had sleeping space for five -- 2 queen beds and the sofa/daybed.

I am so confused now, the website says the BWI rooms only accommodate 4, then the rep tonight said it put a warning on her page saying that the BWI only have trundle bed that pops up from under the bed? That it would only accommodate someone under 9? BWI was a bit cheaper than Beach Club but I worried the extra bed would be too short for my tall teenager?

That is old information about POFQ. No other resort had a trundle like that (and thy don't any longer). Sounds like some info that was on the BWI page by mistake.

I thought it was odd the new Disney pages only show 4 to a room at BWI, she said they put in all new couches that there were no day beds only a trundle now...the POFQ does not fit five but the POR does and has a shortened 'bed' that only fits 53"....that's why I was wondering if they were refitting BWIs..if you look in the pictures they are not daybeds like at BC/YC and others but a 3 sectioned sofa now?

If the bus driver is the one checking your name against the ADR list then no, you couldn't. I've never used an early ADR bus, but my assumption is that like at the IG, your name is checked against the ADR list when you enter the park and not by the bus driver. The early ADR buses must arrive prior to the AM EMH buses so you wouldn't board one for AM EMH
