My hubby and I are taking our first solo trip February 1-8 and staying at the BWI in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary.

It's our 6th or 7th trip to WDW, but it's also a few "firsts" for us:

1st trip without our kids (now 22 and 23 years old)
1st stay at a Deluxe resort
1st trip during a non-peak time

It's been a bit of a dream to stay at the Boardwalk Inn. It's still a little out of our price range, but with the 35% discount and the fact that it is our 25th wedding anniversary, we said "let's go for it!!"

I soooooooo can't wait.

How exciting! This will be a memorable trip for you and DH. Make sure your anniversary is noted in your reservation and I'll add you to the BWB

It would be my pleasure to add you and congratulations on booking!

Like you, it is a little out of our price range, but it was on my bucket list and the 35% off tripped the trigger. We always go on non peak times. My wife and I are taking our kidless trips very seriously, as we just peruse at our own pace. Figure we have a few more trips of our own before the hectic grandkid trips start to appear on the horizon.

I sooooooooo can't wait either
Haven't had a kidless trip anywhere in over 15 years, but they sound very relaxing. I'll add you to our BoardWalk Bulletin, too.

We are headed back home . We stayed at BWI March of 2012 and our last trip March 2013 we stayed at BC (for the pool). But we are headed back this Christmas December 28th - January 6th. We are starting out our vacation at Poly from Dec 25-28. I did that because we don't get in on Christmas until 6pm and would love to watch Wishes from the beach, plus I booked dining at Kona and Ohana so it would be nice to stay there and make travel easier.

Does anyone know, last time we stayed we had a standard room. This time I booked Water View. Does that mean we'll be looking out at Crescent Lake or will that put us by the quiet pool? I DON'T want to be looking at the quiet pool .

Thanks to a once-in-a-lifetime ability to book stacking 2 discounts (one a concession for a disastrous Disney cruise and the other free dining) we are headed back to BWI CL Jan. 18-26 with DD, DSIL and the 3 DGKs. I've stay at the BWI with DH 3 times and infinitely prefer it over other CL's.

Going back!

I am so excited. We only recently returned from our very first trip to Disney staying at BWV on rented points. We thought the resort was perfect! The walk to both EPCOT and DHS was fantastic. Also, instead of waiting on a bus to the Magic Kingdom, we just strolled through EPCOT and took the monorail; it was fantastic. Animal Kingdom and DTD, well who needs them anyway?

Well, I wanted to stay again same week as last year so we sent off the request to David's DVC. Just recieved confirmation that our request for September 12-20 has been approved...WooHoo! What a great feeling seeing an active reservation in MDE again.

Hopefully this will be our last visit as renters and we go in 2015 as owners!

Feel free to add me to the bulletin.

Your Christmas vacation sounds wonderful! The pool view would be a Standard View booking. The rooms nearest Crescent Lake are classified as WV rooms.

Thanks for adding us.

As for the kidless trips, they are so bittersweet. Great to spend time with each other in the happiest place on earth , but just seeing all the families and young ones, it brings back so many memories and reflexions of life. You almost have to make peace with it all the first time and then enjoy yourselves. In my case, the libations help

a repost from the DVC resorts forum):

mouseplanet (jim korkis) wrote 2 incredibly informative articles about the BW. fantastic reading for BW addicts

http://www.mouseplanet.com/10250/Tre...llas__Part_One

http://www.mouseplanet.com/10251/Tre...illas_Part_Two

soooo, not only are the BWV & BWI gorgeous, with amazing views, activities, entertainment, & nightlife not available anywhere else in WDW, they also have a fascinating history.
