I have a question. We aren't going to WDW until next year but I wanted to learn as much as I can about DVC. Did everyone book their DVC Villas through Disney or where? We aren't DVC members but I'd like to get us 1 bedroom villa. This will be my hubby's first time staying on WDW Property & I want to make it special. Plus he requested to stay @ this hotel out of ALL Of them.

any info would be GREATLY appreciated!!!ºoº

You can book both the Boardwalk Inn and Boardwalk Villas using cash reservations through Disney. You can also rent points from a DVC member to stay at BWV.

I just made my final payment for our June trip to WL! I have a question about online check in. Does anyone know what kind, if any, requests can be made when you do online check in? My TA did request bunk beds for us (we are in a standard room) when she booked the trip. But, I was wondering if this was also a request I could add during online check in.

Thanks!

Amy

We've stayed at the BCV's three times and all three times we booked it directly through Disney. We got daily housekeeping, just like for any normal hotel room.

Whoops -- I just realized that I thought this thread was the Boardwalk thread! But the info still applies to WL and VWL.

We booked BLT through the WDTC using the military 40% off rate. You can book DVC villas (including VWL) through the WDTC, by phone or online, and you can apply any applicable discounts. You can look on the WDW booking website for DVC availability/rack rates. These are called "cash reservations" and these bookings include daily housekeeping. When you rent points, you can't apply any discounts and daily housekeeping is not included. Also, you can not make changes to your booking, unlike with a cash reservation.

I have only used OCI for CL (just for fun as it's not really necessary when staying CL) so I can't answer your question about STD room options - hopefully someone else can. You would think that since you can't book a STD bunk it would be an OCI request option, but the most important thing is that you already have it in your reservation.

Congratulations on being PiF - you get our PiF dancing guy!

Hi Everyone,

Figment104- I was there yesterday morning and had Nescafé coffee (may 1) at the Roaring Forks. It didn't look like they were making any significant changes just yet... Still, it was better than nothing.

Nuts, but thanks for the info, I do appreciate it! I was so hoping it might be something different lol. As you say though, it is (most of the time) better than nothing.

Hope you're having a great trip!

Thank you
Welcome! There is a VWL laundry on the ground floor near room 1509. It's free, but you'll need your VWL KTTW card to enter. There is also a laundry at WL, but it's not free.

Hi, we're off to WL on Saturday. I see on the 1st page of this thread that there is an iHome clock radio in each room. Can anyone tell me if this will charge and play my iPod? I realize I should probably know this, but I'm so not savvy when it comes to this stuff. I always travel with our iPod and speakers for white noise at night, and if I can leave the speakers at home it means one less thing to pack. Thanks!

Yep, an iPod or iPhone with the regular connector that is about 1 inch wide (not the new smaller iPhone 5 "lightning connector") will fit on the alarm clock and be charged and play music. Enjoy your trip, it is super close!
