So now, oh wise Boardwalkians, what room requests should I add to my reservation? Some higher floor rooms can see Illuminations and Wishes, right? So should high floor be a request? I'm a blank canvas, I'll take any and all suggestions.

I can't wait to go "home." But it's gonna be a long 10-plus months, so I'm going to have to live vicariously through all of you who get to go between now and then. And if anyone has done trip reports from Boardwalk, I'd love to see links from those as well!
Just wanted to say I hope you have a great time.

So, now any information about navigating the resort is much appreciated.
You're welcome and I was I am always happy to help.

We arrive during appetizer hour next Thursday and I'm so excited that they might have Tuna Tartar. Do they ever have sushi? DH will just love the smoked salmon, too. But, what is a blue crab cheesecake. I love crab, but I'm not sure how I feel about combining it with my cheesecake

Thanks WDWKOOK! I'd appreciate that! We will be at BWI CL in just 20 days! 18 days until PBH CL.

I remember reading that...I think on the CR thread...that is quite a shame...at least you know she is not too rowdy

I can't wait to see Kook's updates! Now that we are officially booked, I am getting back into being DIS-obsessed (I can't bear reading some of the posts when we don't have a vacation booked).

I'm kind of obsessive about my ADRs as well (frequently changing and tweaking right up until the end), so I probably won't use the IPO for it unless I have trouble with an ADR I really want.
That is a long trip!!!! Just think bright and early you can get some coffee and breakfast in the morning at the Innkeeper's Club lounge...

ADR change's huh???check out amanda's thread for ADR changing let me know if you need the link

lisaCM and tinkerbellie also next to go??? Did I get that right? Enjoy!!!

Congratulations! I know when we were in that waiting game, it felt like FOREVER for the points to come in. For the room request, I would request high floor, although last time we did and got 2nd floor. No problems seeing the fireworks from the second floor, but I definitely wouldn't want the first floor. Additionally, some rooms can be REALLY FAR from the elevators, if that matters you can request close to the elevators, but if that's not a big deal, don't sweat it.

I also agree on TIW being better with Club if you have the Annual Pass (or if you live in Florida or now with DVC ownership.) We did DxDP with Club, and we ended up doing signatures almost every night for dinner (which was a good thing), and either lunch or breakfast (not both) but then using all our snack credits for water in the park (too full for anything else), and even converting a few meals into additional snacks to take some things (like mickey rice crispy treats) back home with us.

We officially passed ROFR for BWV resale. Now, just have to sign the contract and send the money. Hopefully, the contract and points will be finalized in time for me to book April 2013 at the Boardwalk. A Fall Break BLT trip and BWV Spring Break trip.

I have a question...at AKV DD loves to participate in the organized pool games they have every afternoon (bingo, trivia, hula hoop contest, etc). Do they have anything similar at BWV?

I'm wondering because at AKV I always have to schedule pool time for midday when the activities are going on (2:00-4:00ish). I'm wondering if I need to do that at BWV also.

TIA

Yes, they have the pool games at the main pool. It will probably be round the same time. There are some differences at the resorts depending upon the setup (akv Kidani had relay races at spray park), but most of them have similar type games, music, etc.

Thank you! That will make my planning a little more difficult, lol, but it is important to DD. She likes playing with other kids (and CMs) at the pool as much as she likes the rides in the park.

Mine do as well. We enjoyed the Boardwalk so much the last time we were there. We make it a plan to do theme parks every other day, so that our dds can enjoy the resort, pool, games, etc, and that we can rest and enjoy the resort as well. Have a great trip.
