Does anyone know if the Boardwalk has an "un"official website like the Polynesian(tikimanpages.com) & the Wilderness Lodge (wildernesslodgesite.com)??

Thanks!

We're at the Boardwalk in room 2003, as far from the lobby as one can get (except for the poor family next door in the 2001). It took me 940 steps round trip to get coffee from the Belle Vue Lounge. It's a nice view of the boardwalk, though. Totally unobstructed.

Too bad you have a long walk but the view probably makes up for it.

Enjoy your trip.

(2) Checking out the display cases in the elevator landings on the various floors. This is more of a 'me' thing than interesting to children or husbands (at least mine), but I love to look at the collection of sea shell frames, photos, tea sets, etc. from "the day." (3) Go into SeaShore Sweets and look at the photos of all the Miss Americas. (4) The quiet/leisure pool on the BWI side. It is a quiet escape. The gardens over there are quite lovely, too. (5) In the evening, the performers along the Boardwalk are fun. (6) Only for those 21 and older, but Jelly Rolls is a terrific dueling piano bar. Drinks are expensive, but the entertainment is fantastic. I believe it is $12 to enter.

Thank you for this Sandi! These are just the sorts of things I was looking for.

Hello All!

We just got back from yet another wonderful stay at BWI CL, and I sooo want to purchase the scent they use there for our home, to try and make the gaps between trips a little easier to handle

I know it's been discussed on here before, but my searches are turning up blanks! Does anyone have any info on where I can purchase this scent and/or what the name of it is?

TIA!

When we're closer to jumbo status (250 pages), I'll edit and post a revised thread, unless someone else would like to create a new one. If there aren't any objections, then I'll post a link to the new thread here.

Not that you're counting. Hope you're having a great vacation.

If someone else doesn't know, TaraPA might know since she works for Yankee Candle, I believe, and they have similar WDW lobby scents. Oh, and welcome home!

Does anyone know if the boardwalk has a "DVC" sign like the Beach Club does with Ariel? I can't seem to find a picture of it. We just recently bought our first DVC @ Boardwalk and of course want to see every little detail to hold me over until we can book our first trip "home"!

I love the BWI scent, too. And did you see that, just in time for Father's Day, Yankee Candle is offering a few new "manly scents" including bacon and popcorn. OMG, I think I'd gain weight just smelling those candles!

Ok I was just at BWV & honestly didn't pick up a scent in the lobby!!!! I do smell it at BC & Poly though. I know there's a commercial machine that pumps the scent into the lobbies, I think they have info on it over on the BC/YC thread. Yankee's Beach Walk would be most like BC, and the retired Aloe Vera is more like Poly's scent. I will do BWI scent research on my August trip there.

The Man Candles....um yeah...the Bacon one makes me nauseous! Honestly it smells like Beggin Strips!! The popcorn one is very tru-to-life but I wouldn't want my house to smell like it!

I know this is a stupid question, but I'm confused a little after looking at a Boardwalk map. Are the Boardwalk Villas all DVC & located all together on one side of the resort (think JellyRoll side) and Boardwalk Inn only regular rooms located on the other side, with lobby in the middle?
