    Here is a resort map: http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/boardwalk.htm. Note the light green section facing the bus stop. We always request a high floor in that area because it gives you a good view of the fireworks but not gardens. Note if you go past rooms x123 you will be 'around the corner' in the yellow section and will be looking at the valet parking lot.

    We were in the light pink section overlooking the quiet pool near the convention center and we could see some of the Epcot fireworks every night. We couldn't see the entire show but could see quite a bit

    Anyone have advice on a quiet area in the villas? I'm a light sleeper and would prefer not to hear a lot of traffic (foot or car) or elevator bings. I hate being so high maintenance when it comes to sleeping!! But, I'll have more fun in the parks if I sleep well... I deal with chronic pain, so any advice for this property is very much appreciated!! This will be our first trip to BWV.

    There is another board that is dedicated to the CLs in all the resorts, they have some pictures of the offerings. I've been looking at that board, and it has helped a little bit. :goodvibes

    I can't on the map you referred to. But if you look at post #2 of this thread you will find what you're looking for.:thumbsup2

    I know this question has been posted back and forth regarding Luna Park Pool closing either Jan. 28th or Jan 2nd. But now that today is Jan. 4th, is it official that the pool is currently open and WILL close on the 28th?

    We're scheduled to be there in 2 weeks. Thanks.

    I don't think the menu changes at BWI with the season. I have some CL lounge photos on the first page HERE.

    Yippee!

    Your stay will be here before you know it.

    It is open now and will close 1/28, according to the IPO - here is the post:

    One more question... Refillable mugs. I'm seeing conflicting stuff about being able to get refills at the bel vue lounge. Do they do refills there? Anyone know if they will be doing refills at the temp bakery stand.

    They did them when we were there 11/28-12/4. And they will give you a take out cup instead of filling your mug if you prefer. The bakery only did take out cups for refills.

    So Bellvue did do the mugs, just in a takeout cup?

    So are we! It's a bit of a hike for us from BWI over to SAB, but the combination of the BWI club lounge and SAB sounds great to us - it's a rare opportunity.

    We faced the quiet pool once. It was definitely quiet until the boats started in the morning, but I don't remember that being a crazy hour of the morning (maybe 7?). We were on the 5th floor, which means there were only about 10 rooms in our little wing. Most of the quiet pool facing rooms are only four floors high. We faced DHS, if that helps. You couldn't really hear the pool, but it was January, so it was never very busy. But if you were on the other side of the "u", you would be closer to a vehicle bridge. I am not sure where it goes, maybe S & D, but it would have a little more vehicle noise. I don't find that the hotels have traffic noise.

    The elevators are in their own bay, but you could request away from the elevator, though we had a bit of a walk. The bedroom of the villas is in the "back" of the villa--not on the hallway. Good luck.
