The weather has been fabulous! This is my last night at the Boardwalk (moving to my favorite, WL tomorrow) and I have loved every minute. The views are great and the ability to access two parks so easily is the best. I am looking forward to WL, but will surely stay here again.

We've done that same split before and you're moving to our favorite, too. Hope to see you on the WL thread soon. Are you staying CL?

The options for room requests during online check-in were....
ground floor, lower floor, upper floor, pool view, near elevator and near lobby. I checked near elevator and near lobby. Hopefully those were the best options to pick?

Hi all!
My children & I will be @ BWI 2/5-2/11, does anyone know if the main pool has any scheduled rehabs during that time frame?
I checked Allears, couldn't find anything regarding resort pool renovations.

Hi All and KOOK, we will be staying here Dec.14 thru Dec. 19. It will be my husband and I on this trip. Really looking forward to staying CL on our first trip to BW. I just cancelled our reservation at Beach Club. I was not reading very good reviews on their CL. So I thought I would try it here. KOOK, its great to talk to you again. I haven't talk to you since our CR CL stay in Sept.

Laura

not to try to disappoint anyone there right now able to benefit from your generosity (and that is very kind of you), do you know you can bring the beer in your checked bag? (as long as it doesn't put you over the weight limit)
string cheese, too. cheese stays good unrefrigerated for quite a while.
but it is very nice to pass stuff on, too!

Just reminding everyone that OCI limits you to pre-set options that may not even be possible or relevant to your specific booking. Always call the WDTC to have any requests added to your reservation that may not be included with OCI.

If you haven't found it online, then it's either not happening during your stay or it hasn't been scheduled yet. It's more likely that there won't be any rehab at that time.

Welcome, Laura! It looks like we miss each other by a few days, though we'll be over on Bay Lake. It's great that you're trying out the Innkeeper's Club and we can't wait to hear about your stay. Safe travels to you and I'll add you to the BoardWalk Bulletin

That's very kind of you to offer your goodies

I believe you are limited a 5 litres per checked bag of alcohol. (depends on the airline, and the weight, of course.)
we bring a 1.75 bottle of vodka and a 1.75 bottle of whiskey in our 2 bags. we don't bring beer becausea 12 pack is heavier than a bottle of booze. and you get the
"mixers" with your refillable mug.

early in the trip, we go to DTD and use that planet hollywood voucher. then walk across the street to the Hess and buy an 18 pack of miller lite. very reasonable. they let you bring it on the bus. (if you have any left, it won't be that much to be too heavy to bring home)

BUT!!! at Boardwalk!!! it was a 6 minute walk for me from the lobby entrance of BW to another hess gas station. (I walk fast). I grabbed a 12 pack , a bottle of wine, and a bag of chips. you could probably buy more stuff if you bring your rolling luggage bag. we did this on harbor blvd. in Annaheim. (they have other groceries like bread, etc.)

I'm thinking they also had small sub sandwiches. a great thing to grab for a quick lunch or late dinner of you had a nice lunch.

Has anyone ever used the grills at bwv? I was wondering if they are always available and what you have to do clean them when your done.

We do seem to miss each other whether its at WL or CR. And now at BWI. Will tell you all how our stay is. So looking forward to this stay! Thank you for adding us to the list.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Villas December 3 - 8. I must admit I was mildly surprised by how much I liked it. We will definitely stay again, just not sure when (we are going back in September, but I am torn between AKL and the BWV...mainly because I don't like the clown pool).

I keep hearing people say they don't like the clown pool... I just don't get what it is they don't like? The actual pool? The clown? The clown does kinda remind me of something out of a Stephen King novel... But I kinda like that!

The ability to walk to two parks... The views... The booking categories... We just think BWV is the overall blue ribbon winner!

It's definitely the clown...I'm not a fan of clowns. We've decided to do a split stay...AKL and BWV in September.
