OK, this is what we'll do then! Thanks!

Well we just checked out of BWV room 4126. Even though we were booked for standard view our room overlooked community hall and quiet pool. Why did I not know how awesome the quiet pool was? Out of many stays this was our first time using it and never went to the Luna pool once! Quiet and the hot tub wasn't filled with kids. I'll post pics later this week when dh uploads them. Feel free to ask any questions!

We are also going down with 3 other families that at are staying at BWV. I understand that if you do the online check in there are specific options for room requests. We would all like to be near each other and figure we have a better chance if we all request the same thing. Does anyone know what the options are for room requests for BWV? Thanks so much!
I just wanted to see how your experience with the DVC rental store was.......after your return. Did you have any problems? We are looking at booking with him for one night prior to our RCI trade starting and I am a little nervous.

Thank you

My daughter has a Yes class at DHS one morning at 7:45 AM, but the regular park opening time is 9:00AM, so I was wondering how early do the boats run to DHS?

TIA!

Just another piece of advice - make sure you know the path to HS! When we went to BC and decided to walk to HS, we could not figure out the path. We ended up walking in circles, frustrated, and then took the boat. NOW I would know better but if you aren't familiar, make sure to look at google earth or the map that someone posted on the DIS that shows the path! I will say we visited BC before I came on the DIS so I'm sure I would have known it all if I had just joined the DIS earlier!

Great to hear about the quiet pool! I LOVE quiet pools (but also main pools). It's so nice that you can get offered a big fun active pool and a nice relaxing pool

I can see where SAB along is very appealing versus the scary clown BWI pool. I'm actually surprised your kids still chose BWI over BC considering SAB.

Well, you didn't try THAT hard, now did you?

AHOY-AHOY, I think someone bailed on the BWI ship, (crazy woman overboard!) and swam over to the YC

No, no, no - she jumped ship and swam over to YC. She's on the shore of Crescent Lake now lapping up the SAB water. YC is the new(est) surprise
