Thank you! We have until July so no hurry (unfortunately, I'd like to be there TOMORROW!!)

I can confirm that there is a locker/shower area in Muscles and Bustles. Never used them myself, but they're there.

We always have a late flight out. Most of the time we hang a the pool and we'll shower at the fitness center before we go. They have a very nice locker room with lockers. The quite pool has showers too but not as nice if I remember there weren't locks on the locker.

Here is a link to a wonderful aerial photo taken recently of the Epcot Resorts area. The photographer has many other great aerial photos in his account:

I would highly recommend adding a link to that picture on the 1st page, because it looks that great and the fact you can also see the walkway to Hollywood Studios in the backround.

WDWKOOK,
I was just looking at other pictures from that link you posted and found an aerial picture of just the Boardwalk area, so here is the link to it.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/adrianc...ream/lightbox/

Edit to add: When I clicked the link it takes me to the picture you posted, however when you click the older button at the top after a couple of other ones it takes you to the pictrure I mentioned.

I just added another great image link to my prior post. I'm still going through all of his photos to find all the BW ones and then I'm definitely going to link to all of them on the first page

That was the photo I tried to post on here. So how were you able to post the correct link and I wasn't?

You're welcome. They're at the end of the first post.

All of his WDW photos are great. The Fantasyland construction photos are great to see and his Wishes photos are amazing.

Boardwalk activities and Epcot question

The boardwalk looks to be a nice area to stroll etc. Are there shops and such there? How much time do you think we should allow? What is the best way to get to the World Showcase and how much time should be allotted for that? Thank you

On the Boardwalk itself their stores are Disney's Character Carnival/Thimbles & Threads/Screen Door General store which all both connected to each other. Besides that there is the Yard Aracde which is connected to the ESPN Club that sells various MLB/NHL/NFL merchandise and WDW sports merchanise and finally there is Wyland Galleries. Now inside the Boardwalk lobby there is Dundy's Sundries and that's where you can find Boardwalk merchandise for sale.

As for how long you should spend there I say it depends on what time you arrive. The reason is at 6:30 PM is when their various acts start performing at random locations along the Boardwalk.

Finally when coming from World Showcase if you exit at the International Gateway which is located between the United Kingdom & France Pavilion, you can then either take the Friendship Boat or use the walkway to the Boardwalk.

Just to add to what CR Resort Fan mentioned....we had a really difficult time when we were shopping there. We went to the Screen Door and asked about Boardwalk specific merchandise and they sent us up to the lobby. We went up to the lobby but, since the store is off to the side, we didn't see it. We asked at the front desk, and they sent us back down to the Screen Door. After running around back and forth we FINALLY found Dundy's Sundries. It's off the lobby towards the villas side. They had VERY few items that said Boardwalk on them, and all but one said Villas. I was so bummed

Hi WDWKOOK,

Thanks for the links to the BW pictures I've got - you've got a pretty nice selection here already. Can't respond to your PM directly, I'm still a newbie here it seems! There ought to be a way to actually show the picture as a link to Flickr as well, I'll investigate that for you and let you know when I can use the PM function.

Boardwalk is a great resort. I don't have any aerial shots of WL I'm afraid.
