You're welcome. I have read that sometimes some guests have asked to take a bottle of water back to their room and the CMs have let them, but I have no personal experience with this.

I hope you have a great vacation!

We asked as we were leaving breakfast on our way to a park one morning. They said to go ahead and go have fun, and they took one and put it in our fridge in our room for us. We came back from the HOT parks to a nice, big, cool bottle of water!

Ohh...that is so nice! The water at WDW is so bad, it would be nice to have some good tasting cold water when we get back!

Just to add to what others have told you -- the CL only has big, glass bottles of Evian; definitely not something you can take to the parks. However, when we were there, we asked & were happily given a bottle to take to our room. And when I returned the empty bottle to the lounge, a CM asked me if I'd like another.

Hi BW lovers. We had our first stay at BWV last week and it won't be our last. Loved the resort. The CMs were so friendly and helpful. Our villa was immaculate. Thanks for the lovely photos at the beginning of this FAQ. Really made me excited about staying at BWV.

I don't know if this is old news but we had different H2O toiletries in our villa. Smaller bottles but lovely scent for the shampoo, conditioner and body wash.....grapefruit bergamot. The soaps were sea salt. Loved those.

This leaves 39 additional club level access rooms comprised of both standard CL rooms and two bedroom suites, but I don't know how many are two bedroom suites.


Thanks!

I was there last week, and by looking at the little fire-escape map on the back of my door it looked like there about 4 of the 2 bedroom suites--but I didn't realize that some of the concierge level was on the 3rd floor...so maybe more are located down there.

You're welcome.

I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend!

kook or anyone who knows the answer ... I did try a search but I couldn't find the answer. I want to ship package to the resort prior to my stay .... I'll be stay in a villa if that makes a difference. I believe that BWI is considered a convention resort so will I be charged a fee for the packages I have delivered? If so do you know how much?

Hi Linda,
Yes, you will be charged a $5 fee. We had a package sent there on our visit last December and that was the case. We had to call the Business Center to get the package sent to our room as it was not delivered to Bell Services.

Though I've never done it, I believe the protocol is to ship via UPS or FEDEX and NOT USPS. Ship items about one week prior to arrival to:

Disney’s Boardwalk Inn
2101 North W Epcot Resort Blvd.
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

Have your confirmation number, date of arrival and full name noted on the package. I've read that Bell Services will deliver your package to your room after you check-in and request it, however, I've also read that at the YC, you have to pick-up the package from the convention center and pay a small fee. I don't know what fees, if any BWI/BWV charge, but hopefully a more informed poster will help you

Thank you both for your quick reply ... I've had items delivered before but never to a "convention" resort.

Smile BBQ GRills on the property?

HI, I have looked for information , but havent found it. Are there any picnic tables or BBQ grills on property at BWV or BWI?

We have a 1 bedroom booked, so will probably eat in for breakfast most mornings and a few nights, but was hoping to be able to cook outdoors.

Does anyone know if there are grills?

Thanks so much,

Dee

There's a nice, big charcoal grill and picnic table at the BWV quiet pool area!
