Lol. People who go to Disney and complain about noisy kids leave me scratching my head. As for your fear of screaming kids, there is nothing to be afraid of. It's just kids...at Disney...having fun.

MY kids are not noisy or bothersome in any way. They are PERFECT little angels.

If you believe this, I have a nice little timeshare to sell you in 29 years.

I never understood why there was a clown there to start with. When I think Boardwalk I don't think circus, I think amusements. But if they were to replace the clown I think a disney character with big ears would be the most suiting to go there: Dumbo or Goofy would make sense.

The pool area at the Boardwalk is called Luna Park after the second major amusement park at Coney Island

Goofy gets my vote. think they have changed the paints to lighter colors.

don't like that clown at all - stayed there looking at the silly thing for 5 different trips - last trip looking at the clown - started dreaming about it - nightmares.

now get standard view and go to the community pool...

Looking at Luna Park photos online (and not BW Luna Park), a full moon slide might be nice.

ditto (and we own at both). and replacing the clown would be like putting high intensity lighting at VWL, replacing the sand at BCV with mickey head sequins, installing a screaming pumba in the AKL lobby, redesigning HH at OKW with big goofy ears, and/or redesigning the exterior of BLT's TOWL as a HUGE BLT sandwich....DVC resorts are designed as true to their period with elegance and taste (and only subtle "Disney" designs)......no, no, no, no, NO to changing out class for crass!

that was hysterical!

or..... make the slide entrance the "other" end....i'm not sure if that would make the slide less popular (little ones, etc) or more popular with just about anyone over 8-10yo, including adults that laugh easily and well (would looooove to see those school compositions on "what i did on summer vacation")

OMG.... that was really funny deb/bill - i don't think i'll ever be able to look at luna park again with giggling

Didn't mean to start any resort wars. It's all good to me, and actually, the clown certainly is unique.

I just got back from BWV and I thought "What if they surprised everyone and got rid of "Pennywise'?" I wouldn't want it to be a Disney character. It's just too much Disney marketing. I like the resorts to have their own separate charms.

I'll say straight up - I don't like clowns. It's the live, in-person type that bothers me though. When I was very young I decided that only people with something to hide wore heavy makeup or masks (outside of Halloween that is).

When sitting at the BWV pool there's just too much going on with all of our senses for the clown to bother me. Disney can keep it, tear it down or whatever they'd like to do with it and I really doubt I'd notice right away unless I read it here first.

They'd replace it with a big scary spider. They'd have to keep the theme of "scaring the ***** off of the guests" going.
