Thanks. I know they do. I'm looking forward to that. I still don't understand why it told me that yesterday was my last day to customize when the FAQs say that you have until 10 days prior to your arrival to customize.

I've got 40 something trips under my belt (as well as taking my first steps at the Polynesian.)
No matter what, even tho I said it already, we are excited to be staying in the Epcot/DHS resort area...

Dan
to the DIS and the BWI/BWV thread, Dan!. Looks like you arrive the same day as lifeguard. Happy anniversary to you and you'll have to take your DS over to the Poly for a Dole Whip at CC.

That would make it not worth it. Can anyone confirm filling them at the pool?
You can still refill at Luna Park Pool.

We're Florida residents, passholders and have averaged 20 nights in WDW the last few years - usually 8-10 days in the Poly or BC, the rest long weekends at POR/POFQ.

IF we buy DVC (yes it's still an 'if') we would buy either BWV or BCV - we take our long trip in October and I figure the only way to get a reservation at either would be to own there. We can live with SSR for short-notice weekend jaunts.

Anything specific we should be looking for as frequent CRO guests/first time DVC at BWV? Locations within the villas? (do you like 1st floor or higher? Why?) Helpful hints for dealing without Mousekeeping? Things to not forget to bring (due to DW's coffee addiction, we know to bring basket-style not cone paper filter and ground coffee! I'm a workout nut, so I'll sample Muscles & Bustles), etc.
Welcome! Just have to do a little of this and throw out that you can also stay at any DVC on a cash reservation and you'll get daily housekeeping included and you can apply any applicable discounts such as FD or percentage off, like FL Resident rates. You can generally make these reservations at about the 7-9 month point as most villas are released as cash reservations at that point.

I really liked M&B, though Sturdy Branches is my favorite. M&B is small, but has just about everything. Jogging is also great at the Epcot Resorts. You can go down to DHS and around Crescent Lake.

Hope you're enjoying your stay!

You would want to request an "Epcot View." I have photos of Room 5282 HERE which has a great view and is on the top floor.

Yep, and she's fond of CR, too. Just booked a Tower Club room for June.

No. Only the villas come with a microwave and toaster, like a PP noted. If you're staying club level, you might have access.

I'm confused about this whole magic band system. I thought you get them at checkin but are they being shipped to you before that? How does that happen and how are you notified to customize them?

I think you can get them at check-in but if you customize them ahead of time they will send them to your house. I'm still sort of confused about the whole thing myself. I spoke to a CM via chat about a month ago and asked how you would be notified if you were chosen to test the MagicBands. The CM said that you would be notified at least 17 days prior to your arrival via email or snail mail. I logged into MDE this past Thursday night after seeing a post from someone on here that they had gotten MagicBands for their October BWV visit. We'll be at BWV next month as well so I thought maybe we had been chosen for MagicBands as well. Turns out I could order our MagicBands but it said that the next day (Friday) would be my last day for customization. I played around with it Thursday night and did not save what I was doing. I ended up ordering a color MB for my mom and she is not happy with the color that I chose for her. I went back on to MDE yesterday thinking that I could change her color since I still had access to customize the MBs in my reservation (my mom and dad are under a different reservation number) and their reservation said that their MBs could no longer be customized and were being shipped. We called WDTC last night and they said that there was nothing that could be done to change the color. I then looked at the MB section on the FAQs page on the Disney site last night and it says that you have until 10 days prior to your arrival to customize your MBs. I have no idea then why MDE told me that yesterday was my last day to customize our MBs. I plan on contacting a CM tomorrow via chat. Something doesn't sound right here. Hope this helps somewhat.

It's going to be hard to fit in a cot or airmattress. A twin sized might fit in the hallway or right at the foot of the bed, but it will make it hard for the others to get to the bathroom or out of bed. If you don't open the sleeper sofa, you'll have a little more room for an airbed.

DVC won't provide either of them. You'll have to bring your own.

This is a dedicated studio, not the standard studio that lockoffs from a one bedroom to make a two bedroom. So you might not have the deacon's bench like is shown. You'll probably have a door into the connecting one bedroom villa in that space.

the studio rooms look slightly roomier than the studio we stayed at in AKL in Jambo house. Maybe because the AKL furniture just seemed so big??
