I have a solution which should work for the links - if you go to Flickr - the normal page, not the lightbox and click "Share" above the picture. Then you can grab the HTML/BBCode. Select BBCode and copy that into this forum. Then you should get the image nicely. I can't do it - I haven't made enough posts yet!

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.

So glad you found me since you can't PM me. The reason I only posted the links and not the photos themselves, is because I didn't have your permission. I try to be careful about those things and now that I know that I have your permission to post the actual photo, with attribution/links of course, I will do that. Hopefully, I can find room for them on the first page (there is a limit of 25 images per post.) I have a trip to BWI coming up shortly and will want to post more of my photos next month.

Thank you for letting me know that you don't have any WL photos. Next trip you'll have to take some. Don't be a stranger on the DIS. Hopefully soon you'll have full "DIS amenity" access

The last BWI rehab was completed in the summer of 2009.

Pool Question

After reading the info on this thread and looking at the maps & photos, it looks like there are no pool bars at either of the quiet pools, am I correct? if so, is it too far to go to the Luna pool for drinks? I know "too far" is relative, but just seeking opinions.

Fabulous! Thank you!

Yes there are no bars located at either quiet pool on the Inn side or Villas side. As for going to the bar at the Luna Park pool and it being to far, maybe you can purchase some drinks in advance and bring them so you don't need to go get them later on.

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
In December 2011 Dundy's Sundries had brand new Boardwalk merchandise that didn't mention Inn or Villas, as it was branded Disney's Boardwalk Resort. I was able to purchase a jacket, key chain and luggage tag.

The only thing I couldn't purchase a Disney's Boardwalk shirt because they only made them in Women's sizes and they weren't available in Men's sizes.

(I hope k&a&c'smom hears about this GF plug here on my thread)
DH knows we are at Poly, but he doesn't know I booked a split. I figured we we get the parking pass he will see the check out date and know we are moving....I only assume he will think GF since I am not telling him I just can't bring myself to book GF with the construction. The decor will appeal to the girls (and me) the slide DS11, and the location DH Out of the Epcot resorts, BWI is the one that has the most appeal to me....

GF related, I went on the threat this morning...saw the pics of the King rooms and my heart sunk (still holding a grudge I guess) then I realized they were pre-construction and I saw your links to the construction photos...and even though SL is not affected....I just can't...can't do the Grand

I haven't stayed at BWI yet but do what I do at other resorts, go to the main pool bar, get 2 drinks to go, drink one on the way back to the quiet pool and then you have one for when you get there

It's funny to see me do this the second time

Look, if you book GF then you'll really be staying at the YC! (Inside joke, poor pas130 booked an GF/RPC room last year and was bumped to the YC upon arrival. It was a sweet upgrade though - to a suite).

And, what is with putting the confused emote there at the end of, "Can't do the Grand" That was a question - not a statement! I think this conversation may have to move over to your Resort Changer's thread

Can you even get two drinks anymore? I thought I tried to get two drinks once at the CR(?) for DH and me and the bartender said it was a one drink at a time per person limit

So great to hear from you, Sheila! I'm so happy you got an upgrade. How do you like it at BWI so far? Can't wait to hear more about your trip when you have time.

Hi friends! We're heading back down to the World tomorrow! Offsite trip this time -- extended family trip, so we needed the extra room of a rental townhouse.

But tomorrow night we're planning to spend the evening wandering around the Boardwalk area (dinner at Big River Grille) and I was wondering where the best place (outside Epcot) would be to watch Illuminations? Thanks!
