I know there are a few repeat guests that may have access to this number, but it is not for use before your trip.

We have stayed at the BWI for years and the cast have become like a part of my family. we are all so sad when we cannot get a room there with either my cast or military discount.
I've been having trouble with e-mailing BWI, so I'm going to call once I go thru my e-mails & write out what I need, so I thought maybe whoever she was calling could actually help me! Lol

Thanks!
If you are staying in the villas (looks like you are), you should have the schedule for the week in your check-in folder. As far as getting an idea of what it could be before you go, you might create a thread closer to your trip for someone to post or send it to you. It will vary some from week to week, but close to your vacation, you will get the general idea.

This the best thing to do. I have always found talking to the cast members at IPO have been very helpful and it is so much better talking to someone rather than emailing.

I sent you a PM.

If you were staying in a 1 br villa, pool view, what kind of room request would you make to hopefully maximize your view?

I talked to about 4 different people over there. They all had a different opinion slightly. But I never thought I was bothering them. They were really trying to help. I really believe that is best number to call.

At AoA there are 3 sleeping areas - not sure if your 3 adults each need their own bed. There are also 2 full bathrooms. Huge foodcourt with decent food. Those are the big pluses on the AoA side. Now the Boardwalk side I think has a lot more!
Proximity to 2 parks - walk to Epcot and DHS. LOVE the IG entrance to Epcot I love walking through the UK on our way to Soarin!
Take a Friendship boat home from DHS - such a nice way to end the day!
Boardwalk Entertainment at Night - love strolling the Boardwalk and shopping.
So many nice TS restaurants.
BWV 1 br - FULL Kitchen - you won't need the food court when you can make your own breakfast and you save a little money!

Hope that helps!
Thank you so much for the response, much appreciated!
We were not able to rent points for any dvc at all. Completely booked for the week we wanted so its official we are staying at AoA. Look forward to seeing it since I alway was a value person until I got spoiled. lol Going to plan ahead next trip. You are so nice to take the time to respond Thanks again

maximize your view - do you mean see more 'stuff'? I would request a higher floor. Not too many choices when you are doing online check in but if you are calling you might want to ask for luna park or quiet - depending on your preference. I think the quiet pool area has prettier views - the canal, Tower of Terror :D

At least you can get an idea of the types of activities going on while things will likely be slightly different for your trip.

There are only 10 Deluxe Rooms
5 on the 3rd Floor and 5 on the 4th Floor
3225, 3227, 3229, 4225, 4227, 4229 - all above the Bakery
3255, 3257, 4255, 4257 - all closer to Flying Fish


Thanks CrazyHakim - I should also mention that if you're facing Crescent lake, the ordering of the rooms goes like this L to R:

x257 -> x255 -------------> x229 -> x227 -> x225

IIRC, 4257 is closest to the Innkeepers desk, 4229 is closest to the lounge.

I want to officially all the new BWI/BWV posters we've had the past couple of weeks. I was at WDW and fell way behind posting, so thank you to all who faithfully answered questions. If your question wasn't answered and/or your name/dates did not get posted to the BoardWalk Bulletin on the first page, please re-post and I will try to answer your question and/or post your dates.

So as not to experience as much post-Disney vacation withdrawal, I booked WL for Christmas today, but I do plan on getting over to BWI/BWV to take Christmas photos

Seabean.... It's me the haunt. When u say 3257 and the other 2 are closer to flying fish, do u mean above the seashore sweets sign or are u not sure? Looks like the bakery and seashore sweets layout is same. I almost think its the middle room above seashore sweets. I saw a post somewhere on here with pic of 3259 and I believe it was room on right.
