    Maintenance planned for Disney reservation systems

    By Leah Zanolla
    Nov 28, 2012

    Disney's reservation system will go down for maintenance December 3 at 5:00pm until sometime Tuesday afternoon, December 4. This is for Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Aulani. If you need to make a payment, you should do so before these dates to ensure you will not be late. You will also not be able to make reservations for dining, dinner shows, tours, recreation and children's activity centers as well as Cirque du Soleil at Downtown Disney. You will also be unable to access Disney's online check-in service.

    I just booked a 1BR at the BWV for May 12-19, 2013 and am so excited! It will be the first time my DH has been to the World since 2006. We will have a nice honeymoon after almost 32 years. :goodvibes

    Just booked 2 rooms at BWI for Super Bowl weekend. So excited, I love the Epcot resort area, we've stayed at Beach Club the last couple of years but decided to switch it up this year.

    My daughter and her family and my son and his family arrived today. My husband and I go tomorrow. This is the 3rd time we have given them a Disney trip for Christmas. We stay on the club level and they all love it. My daughter called to say her sons were so happy to see all the cast members. This is a great time for us to be together since my children are spread accross the country. was hoping my daughter in Alaska could come, but not this year,

    Don't forget the Super Bowl MVP parade the Monday after the game (if you're still there).

    Does the CL staff at BW contact you before you arrive? We're going in 5 weeks and I haven't heard from them.
    We've stayed CL at other Disney resorts and they always called or sent a e-mail?

    Only 5 more days!!
    There aren't any bookable views for BWI CL, they are all by-request only. I believe that all CL rooms have a daybed with the exception of the Deluxe CL room which has a queen sleeper, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I've never seen a BWI room number map on Disneyzone (or anywhere else), just the infamous YC/BC one:upsidedow, which as you said has disappeared:confused3

    The two most popular views are the "Epcot view," which would enable you to see Illuminations, and the BW view. The view is amazing, but you can hear the buskers at night and if you're near the Flying Fish sign you can hear it and also the air conditioning unit which is behind it. Otherwise, the BWV is wonderful. If you want a quieter location, you can request an Epcot View or a Garden View.



    What a great vacation and how cute seeing the bride and groom get into the coach:love:

    How exciting - congratulations!

    :yay:

    I hope you have a wonderful time with your family - what a fantastic gift:goodvibes

    The IPO for all CLs should contact you, but often this doesn't happen. When this happens, just send an email to them with your confirmation number in the subject line. Mention any special requests or reservations you need, or simply introduce yourself and you should receive a response quickly.

    Can't speak for day beds as we always had one in the rooms we stayed in. If you want a Boardwalk View request a odd number and if you want a view of Epcot even numbers. Have fun :goodvibes

    Just a side note, it wasn't really an upgrade as all the rooms with odd numbers are boardwalk view. The even numbers are views of Epcot or garden views. Sometimes the CM make you think you are getting an upgrade lol:goodvibes

    We are here now. First time at the BW. We are at BWV in a studio and are on the second floor with a village green view. We had requested near the elevators and just a few rooms down so very close and convienient as my daughter is in a wheelchair so stairs are out. We have a studio with the daybed in it (not sure if they all do) and can partially see the boardwalk from our balcony. We walked to DHS yesterday. It is a pleasant walk and not too far at all. Love the convenience. My daughter also really enjoyed watching the performers on the boardwalk last evening, almost as much as I enjoyed my funnel cake :rotfl:
