I've already said it once, but I'll say it again....KOOK, you did a fabulous job with this thread!!!! As you know, I love details, and that my friend is exactly what you've done!


As of today, our plans are to do BWV 2 bedroom...may change, but I have my heart set here. I've got to go back and do a thorough read and make sure I haven't missed anything I skimmed last night....just looking at the pics.

Awww, thank you, Heather, you've been away too long! I'm actually going to need to do some revising and updating of this thread very soon as we're approaching 250 page jumbo status. Let us know if you have any questions. We have some great BWV experts lurking around here (thank goodness).

Hi all! I am loving this thread.

We will be staying at BWV for the first time in August and I am getting very excited. DD got her first taste of Disney when we snuck in a day at DL over Memorial Day and she is hooked.

I was wondering if anyone has a sample activities guide or a list of what fun things are going on at the BW. I've read about the campfires at BC and it sounds like BW may have something similar? What about movie nights, pool activities, etc. DD will be 2 in August, so I'm looking for a good mix of mellow activities to go with all the excitement of the parks.

We are planning afternoon breaks and looking forward to enjoying the pool and playground as well.

Also, how is the Screen Door grocery for picking up a few items? I will probably bring non-refrigerated stuff with, but would love to pick up milk, cheese, yogurt, fruit for snacks in the room. Is the grocery selection (and prices) ok? I know there's also a Hess nearby and would consider delivery, but I think we'll likely just eat breakfast and snacks (maybe a few lunches) in the studio.

Sorry for my rambling and thanks for any tips!

Hi! BW is the perfect spot for getting you those mellow breaks!
Community Hall has daily craft activities - some have a cost some are free. Sometimes it is hard to get the kids out of Community Hall because of the fun they are having!

The CM's host a little pool party each afternoon maybe 3ish to 5?

They play pool games and games beside the pool. I say it gets over around 5 because I know it usually wrapped up when we needed to head in and take showers for dinner!

Also when the pool party is over they start the campfire - which is right near Luna Park Pool and you can roast marshmallows!

For movies - you do need to walk over to the BC for movies on the beach at night. It isn't that far of a walk and it is pretty to look at the BW across the lake!

In the evening there is the performers on the boardwalk as well as the boardwalk style games to play.

Screen Door is perfect for a few groceries like breakfast and snacks. Not sure there is anything that I'd consider good for lunches there - mostly frozen or canned goods. I think there might be some Oscar Meyer meat products for sandwiches. I don't remember there being any produce - but maybe someone remembers differently? However - my kids always get the grapes and apples with their meals so we end up having leftover fruit from their meals in our fridge!

Hope that helps! You will love the Boardwalk!

Hmm... As long as we waited for the last day of your TR perhaps. Na, I wouldn't make you wait that long. I'll post here when the improved thread is posted.

Yippee for Phase One

You weren't rambling at all and welcome to the thread! Your question was answered well by LisaCM614. The Hess is just across the street and very quick and easy to walk to. There's a link on the first page for the BWI Hess that shows what they carry.

Here is the link to the most current BWI activities calendar, but they don't have the June one posted yet:

Ok....you got me! I've been trying to think of an intelligent rebuttal, but words have evaded me. I will patiently wait for the much anticipated, new and improved, updated BWI thread







Patiently Waiting,

Swim up Movies?

Hi
In the Activities flyer WDWKOOK posted it looks like they have swim up movies at Community Hall now. Is that right? That would be so cool!

Thank you everyone for this thread in getting me ready for my pre-first stay at BWV as a DVC owner. Meaning I was able to sneak in a few days last week at BWV, before our first 11 mo planned stay at BWV during Thanksgiving.

I loved Boardwalk! I have to stay it is my favorite! My kids still like BLT as their #1, but this is my way #1! Maybe Boardwalk Bakery had a little to do with it. I ate way too much at the bakery! There were quite a few white boxes in our room. Here's a few pics from last week. I haven't seen anyone mention the mickey shaped muffins, my kids loved it. My DD loved the Sugar cookies. My DH liked the Fruit tart and I loved loved the Salted Caramel Ganache (way better than the stuff in Germany IMHO).



And finally...

Why yes, I did...... I like to think that I'm fairly quick on my feet, but there are times (even for me ) that I have to bow out and admit defeat

Raining & windy here today....probably in Charleston, too...kids are nuts! When did y'all get out of school? Bet you go back early like us, also.
