This machine is no longer in the CL lounge, we were so disappointed, we LOVE our mochas! We were there 8/8-13 & they only had regular & decaf coffee. I asked about the Nescafe machine & was told it had been removed. Maybe it's being replaced, but it wasn't there 3 weeks ago.

If i wanted to crowd in at every park i'd have just saved my money and stayed all stars!

We came over from staying 12 nights at CBR and loved that we never had to worry about being crowded on the bus. I guess this resort just wasn't our cup of tea. No worries. We're trying different ones next time ;-)
We learned on our trip a few years ago that it was easier to walk over to the swan or dolphin and catch the bus at the first stop. Sure, we still looped around and ended up back at the BW, but we always got a seat. We'd also get off at the Swan/ dolphin and walk back to the BW instead of waiting for it to get to the BW stop.

But i think the point is that when you pay more for a deluxe you should also get deluxe bus service and not have to go to another resort to get a spot! Anyhow lesson learned... BWI is not for us. Nothing against those who love it there!

Very true. That has been our major complaint about most deluxe resorts we've been to. We've found the MK resorts are the worst since they are so far from everything else. At least there are alternate ways to get to a couple parks to make it a little easier!

Can anyone staying CL now report back if the Nescafe machine is back in the lounge, or still missing?

Left the BWI CL last Thursday, a new machine was being installed that day in the afternoon. As all Club Levels will be moving to Joffrey's coffee I am pretty sure that the machine itself won't be the old Nescafe machine, particularly since one of the Cast Members told me that a sales rep would be coming in to train them on how the "new machine" works. Hope this helps.

I'm glad everyone liked the pics.

I remember from our last BW Club stay a few years ago, we loved that nescafe machine. However, I think it was a similar machine in the Poly Club this past July, and that machine was AWFUL. The drinks were the liquid equivalent of inedible (undrinkable? ). Not good at all. Maybe the calibration was just totally off on the Poly one. We had a single flat-pod espresso machine at the AKL Club in April, and while it didn't make mochas, that machine was GREAT. It made fanstic espresso and the milk frother let you play with your own ratios however you wanted. Hopefully the BW club will get that same machine!

I would like a room with a decent view (rented a standard view room), and in a good location (not a far walk, centrally located). Any suggestions?
Those two request in a standard view villa are mutually exclusive. The rooms close to the elevators will be over the front drive and over resort luggage check in which I understand can be very loud. Further down the hall you would get more of a lawn & canal view but longer walk from elevators.

No parking fees at resorts or parks when you stay at any Disney resort but the parking can be a walk at BWI and I can understand not wanting to pay for a rental.

All deluxe resorts share busses. Except AKL which only shares with AKV Kidani.

This is very true. We have had close to elevators twice including last month. They can be VERY loud!

We're staying at BWV for the first time in October. We booked a studio, garden view. Anything I should know about the possible locations? I'm more concerned about noise than long walks. Thanks!

Request the leisure pool versus Luna Park. The leisure pool tends to be quieter.

Or request Villlage Green which gets you the area between BWV and BWI by the boat dock.
