Waiting for July at the Boardwalk Inn - any room advice pls?

Hi - so excited about our first time at BWI and any help with requesting the best standard view room would be greatly appreciated. My own research has found that a standard view room might have a quiet pool view (nice) or a garden view (still nice) but might also overlook the parking lot (URGGH!)

Also I have heard that the rooms are being renovated so if anyone has been recently and can offer help as to where to avoid and/or where the newly renovated rooms are (and what they are like!) that would be great!

Any advice/tips on these points would really help - thanks!
First trip 1990 and still going strong: Disneyworld, Disneyland California & Disneyland Paris. You could call me a fan!

Standard view at BWI will ALWAYS havea view of the parking lot. Basically, it would be any room facing inward towards the porte cochere and/or lot. In order to ensure that you would not get this view, I would book a garden/preferred view or Boardwalk view.

The pp is incorrect. That's the BW Villas that have parking lot views for standard. The op is talking about the inn.

I would just make sure you put in your request with your reservation and just know that it's not guaranteed.

You should check out the Boardwalk thread. Lots of information there and pictures too.
