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

I think some people have a fear of clowns. I look at it like a fiberglass thing at the end of the slide. It's really isn't creepy or scarey. Bwi has a wonderful pool! The slide is so much fun. I love the view of the swan whilst relaxing in the pool.

Ah, the clown pool! I think the clown is kind of creepy and I would definitely not want a room overlooking the clown at night! On the other hand, I think the BWI slide is the best at WDW (see signature for list of other resort slides we've tried!) And while I'd prefer a more relaxing pool atmosphere than at Luna Park, 1) I'm traveling with a family of five - there is only so much relaxing going on anyway; 2) I entirely forget about the clown while actually in the pool, on the slide, or hanging out near the pool; and 3) if the Luna Park pool is too crowded or noisy, we'll head over to the BWI quiet pool, which is absolutely my favorite quiet pool on property. That wonderful BWI quiet pool is one of the many reasons we chose BWI for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in February.

We LOVED the pool! So fun and the atmosphere there was so chill and relaxing! Add in a pizza from the Boardwalk Pizza window for lunch and it was a perfect day!

I agree Pixarmom the quiet pool was a beautiful spot.

I don't remember the "feed me" sign floating in the pool when I was last there. Those refurbs are amazing.

Instead of FEED ME, it's more like vomiting children.

now if they added teeth to the clown, it might be scary (and maybe just a bit more humorous for some ).

as it is, we've only seen (over many, many trips there) the pool and slide being enjoyed by lots of guests, young and old, without any fear.

I think the clown pool looks fine during the day, it's at night with the lit eyes that it looks a little... Extra clowny.
