Double wow! (I quite agree, though)

The BWI has to have impressed you immensely to give up your CR RESORT Fan 4 Life username. Seeing Kooks pictures has me looking forward so much to my June vacation at the BWV. Then In October we get to stay at BLT and that also has me excited for our first stay.

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?
Knew t was only a matter of time before you would change your DIS name

KOOK those pcs were great!!! Did You fnd the room very noisy in the evenings?

DH's concern about staying at BW had always been about the Noise from the Boardwalk but he loved our room which was over the FF facing the Village Green with Views of Cresent Lake & the Boardwalk, with the doors to the balcony closed you did not hear the noise so he was happy. I am just wondering about a full head on water view room... So tempted to book CL next trip.

No doubt about your loyalty!
We really like BWI too.
It's a good thing they have kept the scary clown pool or everyone would want to book there.

Hi everyone - I hope one of you Boardwalk experts can help me! A good friend is traveling to WDW next week, and they may try to eat dinner at the ESPN club. Is there a fee to park at the hotel for dinner? Also, is it still true that ESPN does NOT take reservations? Thanks so much!!!!

Still no reservations. I don't know about parking.

WOW!

I'm staying at BWV for the first time in August and know I must be staying among royalty--it must be that good. I will say that when we stayed CL at GF you gave me great advice about the whole CL stay, so I am looking to read lots of great things about BW in the coming months!

jmamom, ESPN club does not take reservations. It's strictly walk-in. It can be very hard to get in if there's a big sporting event on TV, but otherwise it's generally fairly easy to be seated. We've gone there to eat when we've been staying offsite, and there's no fee to park. Just explain to the attendant at the parking lot entrance that you're there to eat at ESPN, and they'll let you park. There's supposed to be a policy about only allowing people to park at a resort for three hours if they aren't staying there, but we've never been given any limitation on how long we could stay. The attendant just tells us to have a good time and lets us in.
