We will be there from 10/11-10/19 at OKW in a 2br. We usually go every year and stay at the BWVs or BCVs but didn't know if we were going to go this year so we were late in making our reservations. We are delighted to be staying at one of our "homes" together. We will be attending MNSSHP one night as well as grazing & guzzling around the World.


BWVs - 9/14-9/18

Oct 2-8 BWV

We be there Oct. 2-8 BWV. Last time we did F&W we only had one day. We picked a Thursday (no local crowd). Well it RAINED that day, it was a new record for Orlando, 8" of rain in 24 hrs. We had our Urban Sombreros (J. Peterman Catalog) , Ponchos and Teva's and we had a great time. It wasn't our first but it's the one we will never forget.

Will be there 10/26 through 10/29. Lots of us at BCV!! Us too, but I've stayed there and now I want Wilderness. LOL I know, it's totally not convenient for F & W but I want to try it there.

I can't wait. F & W is my fave!!

We are arriving on Oct 16 too. (Oct 16-Nov6) and at BWV. Well during the week it is usually less crowded but on a Wed night during FW they usually have EMH so then more crowded and harder to get around. If you don't care during the day is great no lines so you can do alot. We like to wander then since you can easily walk for BWV. Then go back at night because we know what we want and where it is.. try to look online when it gets close to see what each booth has and prices...

Hi All!

We'll be going for our first F&W and first MNSSHP (if we can decide that it won't scare our two youngest boys too much...). We couldn't get what we wanted for December at BLT, so we changed the entire trip!

We're booked at AKL-Kidani from October 15-23rd, waitlisted for BCV for the entire trip. We've never stayed at AKL, so we hope to like it!

I still have to read through the entire thread, but please send all suggestions about how to manage F&W with three rowdy boys. DH and I want to have fun and not have to listen to them complain about being bored too much! Maybe they'll be ok with staying a couple of times in the kids' club at AKL (there is one, right?)?

I'm going with a group of friends for the first time ever Oct 20-23. It will be 6 or 8 of us with no kids. I've always wanted to do F&W and I've always wanted to do Epcot without kids so I'm super excited about this! We are currently booked in a 2BR TPV at BLT. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated....how much money do we need? Is one day in Epcot enough? What time should we start on F&W at Epcot? October is way too far away right now!!!

We'll be there!!! We went for F&W in 2010 and 2011. We had to skip 2012 since I was pregnant and my doctor didn't want me travelling past 28 weeks, so we went in September instead. But we made sure to book our trip in 2013 at 11 months out...so we'll be staying at BWV in a 2BR from 10/19 - 10/27. I'm so excited since this is the first time we'll actually be at an Epcot resort during F&W!!

Kidani, Oct 20-26. Have stayed at either BWV or BCV for the last four years for F & W. It was time to try someplace different. I will admit that it is nice to be able to walk home from F & W at night.

Yes--I am going to do that as soon as I get around to it. I actually started to make a list and it was taking longer than expected and then something else came up....but I will do that. I know this has been requested by others, so I'll get it done!

We are going for the first time! So excited to eat and drink myself into a food coma.

Then our waitlist for BCV just came through today!!! Will be there from Oct 2-5.

Can't wait and so excited to try BLT for the first time and get back to BCV after a 4.5 year break. Last time we were there dd3 was only 5m old. She will be just shy of 5 this fall. Will be a very different trip. The older girls love BCV too and can't wait to hang in SAB.
Wish it was sooner
