Sounds wonderful!!! We've stayed in a BWI CL room with a HUGE balcony and a room closer to the lounge with a small balcony. At first, I thought I would prefer the huge balcony, but the small balcony is quite cozy and I loved it - it's actually more relaxing for me because there is no room for our boys to sword fight out there.

We are in room 2043, right over the Screen Door. It's a one bedroom with a huge balcony. Great location as it's not that far off the lobby (unlike May, when we were all the way at the end :-) Even though I ask for an upper floor, you can't beat the view. Getting ready to hit MK and we get to see how the fast pass for lunch at BOG works.

Oh yeah, the lights coming in through the curtain at night are so BRIGHT!

We had that room once. We loved it!! The kids spent all their time out on the balcony, it was like having an extra room. Enjoy!

So best laid plans. I had heard about the BOG FP here on the boards and made reservations two months ago. We show up for lunch and our name isn't in the system. I'm upset, more with myself for questioning why we never got a confirmation. A manager was called over and long story short, he said since it our anniversary, they'd help out and put us on the FP line. As we walked over, he said that the website that was posted on these boards is NOT associated with Disney.

Oh, and since we've eaten in the ballroom, we chose the library. Nice.

Sorry it wasn't a success for you. I used the link that was on the Restaurant Board to get the FP for BOG in August and our names were on the list that was kept by the kiosk. (We didn't receive a confirmation number -- which was weird, but I figured we'd just go with the flow if it wasn't working.) They directed us to the front of the line and we were set. Hope you had a good time. I was glad to have done the lunch, and the setting is very pretty, but it's not something I need to do over and over. The lobster roll at the Boardwalk Bakery is better.

Saw your other post. I don't do room requests because that is just part of the surprise magic for us. So, i don't have any suggestions for you there. But, do schedule some time to enjoy the resort. We love BWV because of its proximity to Epcot & DHS as well as the energy of the boardwalk and night entertainment. Lots of good dining choices between BWV and short walk over to Yacht and Beach Club.

We love the BW view! So much to look at when the kids start going down for the night, just out the balcony!

It was delicious & the views are amazing. Yesterday we spent the day at Epcot. The crowds were heavier than last year when we came around the same time, but still not bad. We dined at Teppan Edo, it was great (except for the chicken which was dry). But all the other items and our chef were terrific. Tonight is MNSSHP!
Hope you're still having a great vacation at BWI.

Does anyone know if the deluxe rooms are all on the same floor as the inn keepers club? Also, do they all have a boardwalk view?

Thanks!
Welcome to the thread! This is from the first page and might be helpful to you:

Deluxe Room locations:
3225, 3227, 3229, 4225, 4227, 4229 Are above the BoardWalk Bakery.
3255, 3257, 4255, 4257 Are close to Flying Fish.

Found this out at BOG (luckily I had a CC with us).

Had the keys re-issued. immediately went to Dundy's to buy something (just to check the cards) and my pin had been re-set and would not work and DW's pin worked but our account was marked as "over limit" (we hadn't spent a penny on the second reservation, should have had a full $1500).

CMs at the desk are saying "some times this just happens" - ran into another couple on the boardwalk this morning trying to charge to their room with the same results.

Disney IT strikes again. Advise you check your KTTW cards PRIOR to hitting the parks without your wallet!
Welcome back and thanks for sharing your experience.

Have you had to wear your sunglasses at night?

I guess we'll hear from you again post-cruise? Happy sailing!

And, if we prefer to be on the same floor as the lounge (as I understand some rooms are not), then I would imagine that should be our 1st request, right?
Only five of the Deluxe rooms are not on the CL floor. All of the STD CL rooms are on the same floor as the lounge. We were in a room just outside of the Innkeeper's Club door. We had an extra large balcony and were on the same floor as the lounge, so you won't need to request that if you're not in a Deluxe room. You might want to request your preferred view though.

Thanks to all the Boardwalk vets who have posted to this thread. You all deserve a commission from Disney as your glowing reviews convinced me and my DH that this would be the perfect place for us and our kids (DS14, DD12) next summer!!
Congratulations and happy planning!

Yes. And they cannot be requested. It's just luck of the draw if you get it or not. Long ago it was a booking category. But no longer.
