To go along with your favorite smells - I love the sounds of the Boardwalk - the music in the background, the boats out on the lake, the bikes on the boards of the Boardwalk.

I will love to see those creepy kid chairs in the lobby! LOL

Pre-packing? This time next week, we will be at OKW Resort and I haven't packed a thing. It's a vacation - not a job.

We're back after an amazing cruise on the Fantasy. We left PC a little after 10 and we were at the Boardwalk in an hour. Just like last year, they put us on a van to get there quicker. We entered the International Gateway just as the World Showcase opened up and boy, did it fill up quickly. When we got the text that our room was ready, we were given the same room that we had in May, 5003. Not exactly convenient when you plan to spend all your time in EPCOT for F&W :-P

I apologize for not scanning through all the pages but I have a few quick questions. We'll be at BWI from 12/7 - 12/11 then BWV 12/11 thru 12/14.

1. How long until we get an email from Disney to participate in Magic Bands testing?
2. How far is it BWV to BWI? and is BWV closer to Epcot?

Thank you all

re: 2. How far is it BWV to BWI? and is BWV closer to Epcot?

The answer to your second question is that Boardwalk Villas are in the same building as Boardwalk Inn. I'm not sure it really matters which one is closer to Epcot; you're talking a difference of just a few steps.

Not really answer, but a suggestion for question 1.

I am staying at the BWI 10/26-11/3. I started regularly checking My Disney Experience about 4 weeks ago. About 2 weeks ago, I was able to order magic bands and schedule fast pass plus.

Friday, Sept 27, I received my magic bands via UPS. The same day, the US mail delivered an invitation from Disney to test the magic bands and fast pass plus.

If I were you, I would start checking MDE every other day or so. I am going to be at GF Nov 30-Dec 5 and it has let me order my magic bands, but the fast pass plus piece was not available yet. I think it will be in the next few days.

Hope this helps.

Agreed, that's a looooong walk. Hope you're enjoying the stay anyway! We also loved our cruise on the Fantasy. Amazing ship, we booked another cruise for next year on board. . But, that makes our next upcoming trip the BW! We checked online yesterday and were able to get the MBs and FP+.

Sorry that we didn't get a chance to meet (or maybe we did and I don't know it. If you were at the adult Halloween costume contest, my wife and I were the Fantasy funnels ;-)

I've decided I like the rooms over the Screen Door better, not because of the walk, but because the balconies offer better protection.

No need to apologize and welcome to the BWI/BWV thread. I'll add you to the BoardWalk Bulletin on the first page.

BWI hotel layout

Anyone know of an interior BWI map that shows rooms/stairs/elevators/hallways/etc.?

Is there a "daybed" in the standard rooms in BWI?
