    Thank you for posting about your stay. I'll have to put your room comments on the first page. What was your room number?

    I don't recall any ground floor BWI rooms, only shops, dining and resort entrances, if memory serves me correctly. I don't know which floors have King beds, but I believe they have BWV Kings. Hopefully someone will know for sure:listen:

    Yes, the BWV side do have Illuminations views:). The poster, vbarry, was asking about Deluxe CL rooms which are on the BWI side.

    Here's an AllEars Twitter photo from 1-16:

    How is your stay? I can tell you you aren't missing any great weather here!

    It is still slated to be completed by March 1.

    I'm drawing a blank, VWL? I thought I knew all the DVC resorts. Oh, wait, is that the Villas at Wilderness Lodge?

    Who on this board would pay an extra $59 per night for a water view room at BWI vs a standard room?

    We are staying 2 nights Swan and 5 nights at BWI and are trying to decide if the view is worth it. We kinda think it would be AWESOME, but that's assuming water view means boardwalk view

    I would and do pay for it. We stay club level every year at BWI and love having a Boardwalk view. Some say it is noisy but to us it is part of the atmosphere that we love:love: Can't wait to be back in May:cool1:

    This worries me a bit since what we enjoy about the Poly is how peaceful it is...now we do have a standard room booked so maybe that is a good thing?

    Should have added that we usually stay in a deluxe room so like the above post said it is guaranteed a BW view. We have stayed every year at BW CL since 2005 so a couple of times when we have not stayed in a deluxe room we requested a BW fiew. You know what though. If we did not get it, the Boardwalk is just a few steps away:cloud9:

    I think I'm confused about how the Boardwalk is laid out...are there seperate buildings? (I'm used to requesting a specific building at other Disney resorts) If I book a standard room can I request to be as close to the main lobby as possible?

    It's just one big happy building. With hallways from the Twilight Zone. People complain about the halls going on forever. But I've been to other resort with several building and at least at Boardwalk you're indoors.

    Just booked BWI for May 14 to the 22nd. Southwest flights were too good to pass up. Hope to finally get to see sftbank.

    I also saw somewhere that the pool with the clown slide is only for BWV guests?
