Question Room Requests? Sprained Ankle!

My DH sprained his ankle this weekend and our flight leaves one week from today! We are staying BWI CL. I called and talked to CRO last night and told them that he sprained his ankle. I looked at the request this AM and it says "Guest has trouble walking". I'd like to call back and be more specific but not sure what to ask. 4th floor near the lounge? is that ok?

We just switched our reservation from Poly to BWI CL. We are 92 days from our trip and we reevaluated our plans. We were thrilled to find availability with our PIN. We have stayed at both and really like both resorts. It has been several years since BWI and we are looking forward to going back. We wanted to be closer to Epcot and DHS for most of the trip. We considered BC/YC but DH made the final decision on BWI. After going to the Poly for the past several Summers, a change is good IMO. Love all of the great reviews of this resort. From staying there in the past, I can concur how lovely this resort is. (We don't have clown issues either )

Just saw the WDW discount for this summer. I was excited to see the 'up to 25% off' for deluxe villa resorts. So I checked for my dates in July to see if it would be a discount. It is MORE expensive than the discount AAA got me! It was only a 5% discount on Disney's site and AAA has me booked at 20% off! I was really suprised. But I'm happy I still have my 20% discount for July and can not WAIT for the trip!!!

BWV Standard View 2 bedroom lock off room requests?

Can anyone help me with requests for our 2 night stay in a Boardwalk standard view 2 bedroom lock off at the villas? We will have 3 adults and 3 kids ages 13, 10 and 5. We will have a stroller we will take to the parks so will need to use an elevator if on an upper floor. We will have a car but will plan to walk or use boat transport to Epcot and HS. Might take the bus or drive to AK. Will likely save the MK visits to the 2 days we are staying at Bay Lake Towers. We will have refillable mugs so might like easy access to a mug station but this isn't a big priority.

Now that I can post and upload easily from WL, here are some room view photos. We were in one of the 3 rooms outside the Innkeeper's Club on the 4th floor - 4261:

Did you get over to Kouzzina yet?

Walking to Epcot & DHS is the Best!

Glad you are enjoying your stay at BW,Have a Great day.
We never made it to Kouzzina since it was so easy to walk over to Epcot for a bite and we ate breakfast in the lounge.

Regarding the lounge, are you saying that they didn't put out appetizer's and dessert? Say hi to Anita and the gang if you can. They know me via Brunette or Michele. Tell her I was the one talking about all the DIS people (Nascar girl, CRResortFan, and quite a few others). Keep us posted! Hope you are having a GRAND time!

Brunette
I meant that the lounge was empty those evenings, not that the food was not there. We've been at WL/CL since Monday and we are having a wonderful time. Thanks!

Oh no, so sorry to hear that your husband hurt his ankle. You should email the IPO and ask to be on the 4th floor, as close to the lounge as possible due to his mobility issue. Is he on crutches? I hope that your trip helps him feel better.

Only 1 Month and 1 Day till I am at BWI!! We are staying 10 nights, which is awesome!

Any recommendations for a honeymoon at BWI?

Does anyone know if they offer these Honeymoon pins at BWI anymore? http://pinpics.com/cgi-bin/pin.cgi?p....1333668041.v2

While I will continue to think that the Contemporary is an excellent resort, my new found love for the Boardwalk Inn has finally forced me to give up my CR Resort Fan 4 Life user name, and now go with something that is more appropriate - BWI FAN 4 EVER. It was tough giving up 39,674 posts, but it is worth it as a signal to my new allegiance.

Kook,
All those pictures look amazing and it's great to know your daughter was feeling better.

Also I am wondering what did you think of the BWI CL Cast Members and did any of them make a great impression on you?
