Room Request Help

Our waitlist for BWV just came through! We will be staying in a 2 BDR villa (standard view) from July 26-August 1. We are staying on points (not sure if that makes a difference in what I can request). What should I request to get the best view possible in our room category? Thanks!

We've stayed at every deluxe except GF, so we're really excited to try it. But I agree, it's just too hard to give up the Epcot resort area (and for us, especially BWI CL) to stay at GF the entire time.

We'll be really excited to hear all the details of your split stay in July!!!
We wanted to do GF first but we couldn't get BWI for the last nights on a discount. I'm still checking everyday to see if something pops up.

We were thinking of just doing GF but we couldn't give up the BW. We love it too much.

I will definitely let you know how our trip was when we get back.

ETA: Just got off the phone with Disney and this terrific CM finally got it to work for us to switch our resorts at the discount. Going to GF first and then BWI. I'm so happy now!!

I'll get to eat another one in October, only with a much shorter walk from the BWV.
Where can I get the lobster roll in picture? Thanks!

Yay!!! We definitely need to keep in touch! Our dates are GF January 7-9, and then BWI January 9-12. So exciting to run Dopey! I can't wait to register on Wednesday (taking advantage of the early registration for passholders.) Just the 5K with our boys and the full marathon on my own. Will your family run the 5K with you? So fun - we ran the PHM weekend 5K and our teens organized costumes - they were Lumiere and Cogsworth, youngest as the Beast and I wore a Belle-inspired run outfit from Etsy. For marathon weekend 5K, our teens want to be Anna and Elsa (that's theatrical teen boys for you!) with our youngest as Olaf and me as Sven.

Yes, Boardwalk Bakery. There are no tables in the restaurant, but seating on the Boardwalk. They wrap them up in a box to carry.

My wife and I are booked for the BWV 9/16-9/21/14. Looking forward to experiencing another Deluxe resort. We stayed at AKL last October and loved it.

We're planning to hit up the first couple days of the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot on Friday/Saturday.

I had issues with early morning room noise (avoid room 4202 like the plague) and lack of turndown service being the main complaints.

I was contacted by a very nice CM who wanted to discuss what I had written and ended up with a little pixie dust (a comp one night stay) sprinkled my way. I was impressed with the conversation and felt that this CM truly listened and understood. I did share with her that I felt the CMs at the BWI were superior to other resorts and I enjoyed the friendly ambiance from the CL staff to the pleasant greetings from the mousekeepers I passed in the halls and the other staff that I encountered in the halls.

I guess I'll keep my bounceback reservation for Dec. 11-17
Good for you!!

We always request 'upper floor, across from bus stop.' This puts us in a position to see the Illuminations fireworks (although some rooms have trees blocking the view). As long as you don't mind the often-exaggerated long walk to the elevators, this location is ideal because you're only a short walk to the bus stop, the quiet pool/Community hall area plus the walkway to DHS.

Do standard rooms have a DVD player?

I didn't think they do, but then I was reading info about the activity center and it mentioned renting DVDs for your room and I watched a video tour of a standard room online and it looked like they had one.

Alrighty, hoping for a RO discount for our stay in September during F&W. AND if that happens, I'm going CL and no DP. Are there rooms in Deluxe CL with King beds?

Any room at the Boardwalk VILLAS will have a DVD player as those are DVC rooms. I don't know about Boardwalk INN. The Disney website, when looking at various 'places to stay' has the Community Hall (where you'd get the DVDs) under the recreation listing for the Villas but not for the Inn. Though the pictures of the standard room at the Inn certainly look like they have a skinny DVD player underneath the TV set, it's definitely not listed in the amenities like it is specifically listed for the Villas.

I wanted to make sure, from what I can find there isn't but I thought I would ask on the off chance that someone knows more than me and I don't know much

We stayed in a standard room at BWI last June and we had a DVD player in the room.
