Good luck and enjoy!
Lucky you to get in SV studio at 6 months out in January. We have been on a waitlisting to get in BWV SV Studio at 7 months out in January.

So the Deluxe room and Cottage photos on the first page weren't helpful?

There wouldn't be room by the door, but there is room in the area pictured in the hyperlink above that has the TV and sleeper sofa by the sliding glass door. The cottages are much larger, but they are not located within the same building as the CL lounge and they all have one king upstairs in a loft and one sleeper downstairs in the living room.

We stayed in the deluxe CL room just a few weeks ago. It's quite large--it felt like double the space of a regular room even though I know it's not--and would be plenty big for three adults and two pack n plays, provided that you don't unfold the sleeper sofa. If you do, then yo'll still have plenty of room, but it will be harder to separate the PNPs.

Thank you! It's difficult to see the space by the door in the photos, but, from what you have both said, I think I will try the pack n plays in the living room area, which we would not be using for sleeping. Thanks again!

Enjoy! It's a fantastic room! When booking, request the third floor--they have bigger balconies. There's a staircase right by the room which takes you directly up to the 4th floor and the CL entrance.

Couple of questions about the Garden Suites we are thinking of switching from the BC CL for our Oct trip...

I think I read somewhere that there's a half bath on the first floor. Is that true?

Where are the entrances to the main building and to the boardwalk? Is it far to go?

Thanks!

Hiya Kook,
It's probably the heat advisory weather we're having here, but I couldn't help myself. SAB was just too tempting.
I know we'll stay at BWI again, so I'll continue to lurk on your friendly thread!

Not that I've ever stayed in a Cottage, but yes, there is a 1/2 bath on the first floor. Allears has a nice photo gallery here http://allears.net/acc/g_bwi.htm

We stayed at BWI in March and are heading back in a couple of weeks. The cottages are in the garden area of the Inn side. We walked by them to go to the quiet pool. It is a little walk to get into the main building and then through the lobby to the exits, but I wouldn't call it far. They look lovely.

The lure of the lazy river. You'll have a great WDW vacation no matter where you stay, but you're still on the BW, but are you still at AKL? Enjoy the YC and F&W and come by any of my threads anytime the mood strikes you.

Is there anywhere to buy balloons on the BW? DD has just passed her BSc (Hons) in Psychology, she's currently on the International College Programme and we're coming over to see her tomorrow, I've got her a congratulations card but would like to get her a balloon too, we're taking her shopping next week so then she can pick out a present but it would be nice to have something to give her .

I was going to add the BW entertainment link MOM POPPINS posted: http://www.wdwent.com, but I just noticed that the BW page was last updated 10 years ago, but some of the info. still looks right.

Hope everyone is keeping cool today

What a sweet gesture and congratulations to DD! I don't recall seeing balloons for sale on the BW. I suppose you could order them through Disney Florist

TIA
