Lindsay, if you're ordering from Garden Grocer, try calling and asking if they can get gallons of water for you. Sometimes they will accommodate requests for things not showing on the website. If you've already tried this and they can't, ignore me!

Todays's release of AP discounts allowed us to upgrade our BWI stay to CL!
Yay!

We are ordering from GG. Our first time doing so. Never heard of it until I came on disboards. Thanks so much for the tip! We will definitely call them.

They didn't yet when we left mid August & I didn't see anything that led me to believe it was imminent, but then again I'm not sure what it would look like!

Any idea when the October activities information will come out? Does anyone have a copy of Septembers? I'm curious as to what there is to do at the resort? Thanks!

Another refillable mug question: Is there a refillable mug station at the pool?

In the past; no. Did I read one was installed?

You're going to love the convenience of being on the BW. Happy planning!

Hope this helps.
Thanks for posting! I was told at WL that the rumor is that the new machines will be pods like the machine that's been at CR's Atrium Club for years, but it may be a newer model.

We just got back from an AMAZING trip to BWV. We booked a cash reservation for a 2 bedroom villa. Our room wasn't available when we arrived so we headed to the pool A few hours later I was texted our room number and went to go unpack. Imagine my surprise when I walked into a spectacular 3 bedroom grand villa! We've definitely been blessed with Disney Magic on many of our trips but nothing quite like this. It was wonderful!!! Our balcony overlooked the Boardwalk and I will admit that I now understand why someone would pay extra for a good view. Just fabulous! The guy from bell services told us that many of the grand villas are duplexes and that we were truly lucky to get one that was all on one level. I've never seen another grand villa for comparison but this one was absolutely gorgeous and huge. We are spoiled forever!!!

We've stayed at the Swan, BC, and YC in the past so we knew we'd love the location and we definitely did. Overall we had an incredible trip! My few complaints are minor: the hallway noise was quite loud when we were in the living room (not a problem from the bedrooms because they were on the outside) and I can imagine this could be an issue if staying in a studio. I thought the pool was a bit on the small side. This usually wasn't an issue as the crowds weren't terrible but on our last day they were checking room keys and handing out wristbands because of crowding. The pool slide was very slow and I almost got stuck on my first trip down. I suspect it needs to be re-surfaced or more water pressure? None of these issues at all impacted our wonderful trip but I thought it might be helpful information for others.

Wow! What a great upgrade and memory.

Besides the Hess across the street, the grocery store on the BW has gallon jugs of water, though they aren't as cheap as a stop at a Publix or WM-type store.

What type of coffee makers are in the BWI rooms now? We are arriving in 6 weeks and I need to pack...

Thanks.
They are Cuisinart pods.

How exciting! Congratulations!

Umm, I saw it now. It's been a busy first day back to school... Oops and I just repeated what you already posted about the pods. Great minds...

That's terrific! I was surprised I hardly had any wait calling this afternoon. How about you? I was able to convert two nights of our Chirstmas stay at WL from the SoG overflow rate to the AP rate, which saved us another 15% off per night

I'll add you to the BW Bulletin. Congrats!

I have a link in Post #1 to the activity calendar. They are usually posted within the first few days of the month. I checked, and the September calendar is up HERE.

As of last Thursday Aug.29 the Bakery was selling and still using the old mugs. I am 100% sure of this. The setup was for the RFID mugs, but they were not being used.
