What do you think is the best way to get from BWI to Hoop Dee Doo Revue? Would it be walking to Epcot and taking a bus to the Wilderness Lodge (and then an internal bus to Fort Wilderness)? Or bussing to Magic Kingdom and then taking the boat to Fort Wilderness? Or something completely different? Any help would be appreciated!

The bus to MK and boat to FW is your quickest route, and you also get to go over the water bridge. You could also walk to the back of the CR and take the CR, WL, FW boat loop if you want.

The bus to MK - boat to FW is a nice choice
OR
I would walk or take a boat to DHS and then a bus to FW. Or I would take a cab. Which is definitely the choice I would recommend after dinner!
I would not walk all the way through Epcot and all the way to the buses! I would be a sweaty tired mess !

It was pretty close to the elevators, one floor up from the lobby. Its actually almost above the doors from the courtyard to the elevators/walkway to lobby.

To get to the bakery, you'd get on the elevator and go down to 1, then out the doors toward the village green, walk around Flying Fish and Kouzzina to get to it.

Overall, it really was a GREAT location!

Welcome! The last room soft rehab was in '09. I last stayed CL in March 2012 and we were in room 4261. It's a BoardWalk view room, just outside of the Innkeeper's Club door. I'm quite particular about room condition so IMHO, it no longer had a newly rehabbed look. I was in a WL room in August 2012 shortly after it had been rehabbed and the BWI room had much more wear than the WL room which had none.

These were the very minor issues I recall:

~The floor lamp that was next to the extra window was broken and wobbled.
~The extra window wouldn't close completely so rain blew in during a storm.
~There were crayon marks on the back of the bathroom door and bathroom wall.
~The ceiling above the vanity area had what appeared to be dirt, dust and/or mold.
~Carpet stain/wear near beds and entry.

Other than those relatively minor issues, I can't recall anything else. I think a lightbulb was burnt out which took a couple of days to replace. Housekeeping was very good.

I vote for walk or boat to DHS and bus to FW. That option seems most relaxing and much cheaper than a cab

58 days & counting! DS12 has NO idea yet...can't wait! Still don't know how to pull of the surprise. I go to Disney frequently so as soon as we hit the airport he'll know. I might just wake him up & tell him to get dressed he's going to Disney World! I'll take any ideas or suggestions!
Since you think he'll know when he gets to the airport, presumably because he'll see that you're at the MCO gate? I would tell him that you're going to Orlando, but you're staying off-property and only going to Universal

Oh man he'd probably start crying!

Our gate won't show MCO, we don't have any direct flights from our airport anymore I don't have airfare yet but the gate will say Philly or Charlotte. The airfare is over $400RT per person right now, it needs to come down or mom & boys will be taking a ROAD TRIP! DS16 got his permit yesterday so I would have another driver to share the ride....but the thought of being on the road 24 hours with them in a confined space is unbearable!

We will be at Boardwalk....from 7/14-7/19..staying in standard club room. 1st time doing the club level...but with 2 teenage boys...the extra food/snacks will be helpful!!!! Even with the dining plan..LOL

SOOOO Excited..it has been about 4 years since we were at WDW. This year we are celebrating our son's High School Graduation & about to depart for college in the fall!!!!!

He actually asked for this trip instead of a grad. present or party!!! WORKS FOR ME!!!!!

Plus the boys can park hop on their own (ages 18 & 13)....so gives my hubby and I some time to explore the parks more leisurely or the resort.

Back from another fantastic stay CL. We had a fantastic view of Paris and enjoyed the Illuminations nightly from our balcony. We are heading back the first week of Dec.

thanks lisa and WDWKOOK, I hope those issues like dirt/dust/mold, carpet stains, broken lamp and window that rain comes in have been taken care of . imhp - not minor things especially on club level.
