Hi All! We are traveling next month for 8 nights. We've been all over the place with changing resorts (it's kind of a game for me..haha). We own DVC and initially had 3 nights at BWV, but decided to use the points at WL and book 4 nights BWI CL! I'm so super excited!! We arrive at the BWI on 8/18, checking out 8/22. DS turns 3 on 8/21 Nice way to spend his birthday!

Any recent reviews of the BWI CL?? Our home resort is BWV, so we've stayed there a number of times but this is our first trip to the Inn side. Can't wait!

Just spoke to a woman over at BW concierge and was advised that any refrigerators that were recalled at the BW would have been replaced immediately. She said that we will have a fridge when get there in less than 2 weeks.

Well I was given bad info. Just heard back from IPO and was told that the refrigerators are in limited supply. I hope we get one since the lounge doesn't have a refrigerator and it will be very hard to keep things cold in an ice bucket in your room for late night after lounge is closed.

Not happy at all. This is not getting off to a good start.

In 16 days I'm heading on Honeymoon and we're staying here for the first week (30 July - 06 Aug). I cannot wait!

I've never been, but I just have that feeling I'm going to love the place. Both the theme and location look perfect, as I'm a big fan of:
1920s - 1950s culture
Epcot
DHS (Yes I'm their one fan)
And most importantly eating

My one regret is we will not be there long enough to try every restaurant, and that we didn't book a Boardwalk View (but if we did we couldn't afford a deluxe for weeks 2 and 3).

I'm fully expecting both my Fiancée and I to love the place to the point where we will have to go back every time (meaning even longer waits between trips!).

I'm just wondering does anyone know if there's much BWI merch available? Ideally in the form of pins and magnets and other keepsakes such as picture frames.

Hi, I will be going to WDW this Christmas and staying at the boardwalk, I was wondering if anyone knows who the current street performers at the boardwalk are or any place to find out what the schedule is? Thanks!

Welcome! I'll add your dates to the BW Bulletin. My BWI/CL review is from April 2012, so it's not that recent, but it's posted HERE.

Welcome! You posted on the WL thread that you'd be staying there your last two weeks. Maybe you could do some of the missed dining then? There is quite a bit of BW merchandise. I have photos from April 2012 on the first page.

I hope you have a wonderful Disneymoon

Congrats and have a great trip. If you don't get all that dining in, you'll have a reason to return on the 1 year anniversary.

We will arrive at the BWI on 9/23, checking out 10/1. We took the Deluxe Dining, paying just the upgrade from Dining Plan, because the Dining Plan free!

The two weeks in WL we are using to fit in the rest of WDW dining and any off-site eating. We will probably just have to book another visit

With all those dining credits, make sure you try Flying Fish and Yachtsman's Steakhouse across the water. Both are worth the two credits!

Thanks Sheila! Quiet is just the ticket -- for ME anyway, don't think the other two care all that much. That SV you had sounds kinda similar to our first SV room we had at BC, overlooked the entrance. The bus noise didn't bother us (although the "GV" room we had at YC ... the bus stop noise was horrible! )

I think it's likely that you'll get the full 6 days in a studio, especially at 11 months out. We requested points only 6 months out and got 4 nights in a studio for January.. We did have to split into a 1bed for our other 3 nights but I was still happy to get it

Good luck and enjoy!

Welcome and congratulations on booking BWI. You have lots of fun ADRs to make. I'll add you to our BW Bulletin.

BWI Deluxe Room Question - adding to this thread

I can't find what I consider to be good pictures of a BWI Deluxe Room-Club level. I'm trying to decide if three adults and two children in pack n plays (ages 2 years and 6 months) would sleep comfortably. Specifically, would there be room for two pack n plays with a little separation; e.g., one by the window and one by the door? Would a Garden Suite be preferable? Any advice and/or pictures would be great. Thanks in advance!
