We got back from our 6 night stay at The Boardwalk on Saturday evening. We absolutely loved the resort! I just can't say enough good things about it. Everything about our stay there was pretty much perfection We really enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the atmosphere. Our room was great, service was wonderful, and the location just can't be beat! I found it very peaceful and relaxing. I think my favorite thing was leisure time hanging around the resort and the boardwalk....so many nice places to sit and enjoy all the lovely views. Oh...and the gingerbread Mickey cookie with chocolate-dipped ears at Seashore Sweets was to die for! Wish I was sitting on a bench on the boardwalk soaking in the nighttime view across the lake and munching the ears off that cookie right now

Nine months for us. We've never stayed at any of the "Epcot" resorts (I think of them as the Boardwalk resorts) but BWI was always a dream. Now we are renting points for a BWV studio, to go to Food&Wine to celebrate DD's 21st Birthday!! CAN'T WAIT!!! …but where did the years go?

Renting DVC points is a great way to go. I tell people about it all the time, but they are frequently Leary about and pay rack rates instead.

We've done it several times, and it has worked out great.

Enjoy!

Returned Sunday night from a wonderful stay at BWI! I have pictures to post on the BWI and Villas Pics thread. The service was great from check-in to a maintenance problem with the tub and Mousekeeping. Couldn't have been more pleased!

I had booked a standard view and our room was on the 5th floor over looking the main entrance, never heard noise from outside. Room location was great, too, just a few steps from the elevators! Having only stayed Value before this, I was happy to have so much space to spread out and loved having coffee in the room. The only thing was the coffee maker wasn't plugged in and I couldn't reach the extension cord so I carried the tray over to the desk and used it there. No big deal though. The H2O products are wonderful and our maid stocked us up on our second day. On day 2 I took a shower but noticed the tub wasn't draining and after 20 minutes there was still standing water. Called the front desk to request maintenance come so my sister could shower, and they responded in about half an hour with a quick fix.

We used the quiet pool and hot tub on the Inn side, as well as the Luna Park Pool. It's weird for this Northerner to be in an outdoor pool in January, but we enjoyed taking advantage of it while we could. Neither pools were crowded when we were there, but that's the off season for you!

The best thing about the Boardwalk is definitely location, location, location! A quick walk down to Boardwalk Bakery, EPCOT, the boat launch, and of course Jellyrolls!

Buses- We were also running the half marathon last weekend. Transportation to WWS for packet pickup was pretty good, we didn't have to wait long for a bus there and back. The only thing I wasn't used to was sharing buses with Sawn & Dolphin. Sometimes Boardwalk was first drop-off but other times it was Swan, Dolphin, Yacht Club, Beach Club, THEN Boardwalk. We could never tell if we'd be off the bus in 5 minutes or 15. Still, a minor inconvenience. Transportation on Half Marathon morning was also good, we got in line for a bus at 3:40 a.m. and got on quickly. Did not share with any other resort on the way to EPCOT pre-race. We did drop off other runners at the different resorts after the race though.

Food- we ate at Boardwalk Bakery a couple times, which was awesome (Oreo Cupcake for the win!) and got margaritas at the stand outside Kouzzina. The rest of our dining was elsewhere on property.

All in all a WONDERFUL stay at Boardwalk. I am very spoiled now that I've made the jump from Value to Deluxe but for the amount of time I spent at the resort this trip I am SO glad we splurged. Will absolutely be back!
Thank you for your TR and it looks like you'll need to book another stay at BWI soon

Another satisfied customer. Glad to read you had a great stay, too.

How sweet that you're celebrating DD's 21st at WDW and BWV. Are you going to take her to Jelly Rolls or Atlantic Dance?
