    I'm assuming that is on the villas side correct? Maybe being on the ESPN club side will be quieter? If we decide on standard view we will stay our first two nights at the grand floridian instead of the swan like we've planned. Maybe it's worth the trade... 2 nights at the grand but no boardwalk view for our 5 nights at boardwalk inn...

    Yes it was in BWV, perhaps a higher floor may be quieter, I did request this but didn't get it.

    momof4minnies-While it is nice being on the floor the lounge is on we do not mind the back door up the flight of stairs right to the door that allows you access to the club level. I guess the reason we like the 3rd floor room is for the same reason you will hear KerryCM say, the balcony is bigger and it is just nicer to relax out there. Our favorite room is right above Seashore Sweets. To get to the lounge, you walk out your door and right to the stairwell upstairs. A 30 second walk to the lounge does not bother us but everyone is different. We like more room on the balcony for the evening relaxing. You will also have a nice view of the entertainers down below. Brian always makes his comment about Lincoln when we are on the balcony watching his show instead of down on the Boardwalk. Fun times! Either way you go you will enjoy the CMs and the Boardwalk Club Level. Let me know if you need anything else!:wave2:

    Yes, I have read that many prefer the 3rd floor for the larger balconies. Definitely something to consider. I was wondering where the deluxe rooms are on the 4th floor? Are they within in the access locked doors? How close are they to the lounge?

    Thank you, Stacey. I very much appreciate your, or anyone's, input. :goodvibes

    My room was 4257 and we were right before the lounge check in area. I rather be near the elevator. I have babies so the 4 th floor was better for our family. My husband would bring me breakfast in the morning as I was tending to the babies and didn't have to take them to the lounge.

    We stayed at the Swan once with the kids and really liked the area. My DH has a soft spot for Poly CL though, even though he loves Epcot. I really wanted to do a spot just for us so i wouldn't keep being reminded of my kiddo's and miss them :( Even though my baby will be 12 1/2 when we go. They all still love WDW so much.

    I am taking DD12 in 6 days with my brother and neice so hopefully she will do ok with her Grandparents while we go.:confused3

    I know there is one deluxe room on the 4th floor right outside the check in area before the door because we stayed in it in 2006. I believe the # was 4257 like pl4bby said. The room we like on the 3rd floor is the exact duplicate #3257. One time we had the first room right inside the door. That was our first club level stay. Hope that helps. You will be happy no matter what. Once again the CMs rock!:thumbsup2

    Are the 3rd floor balconies bigger on the villa side too or just the inn.

    No, I don't have a log for the Inners, but I can put you in the Lodgers' Log for BWI, too. I have myself down for FWC:snooty:

    I have a soft spot for Poly too but the rates were just too high this spring!

    My BWV trip is just the ladies - no kids - so if you're missing yours we should meet up & say hello! I go WDW about 2-3 times a year without my kids - they've learned that this is how it is lol!!!

    Aren't they fun! I've been going on ladies trips for the last 7 years. Some years I get to sneak two in, hoping for F & W this year. :thumbsup2

    We were Polynasian faithfuls but after staying at BW last year, I converted.
    The rates are too much for me to justify staying Polynesian after so many times.

    Hi everyone. Just wondering if all of them are in the same area. We have 2 garden/pool view studios booked and have requested dedicated studios. Also, do any of them connect?

    I was wondering if the self parking at BWI has been a problem for anyone. We plan to use the car at least once a day to go visit our doggie at Best Friends PetCare. We did this last year at AKL and didn't find it a problem but I have read the parking at BWI can be an issue. Feeling unsure about my resort decision...:confused3

    We used self parking in October and had no problems. They have an overflow lot across the bridge and there are plenty of spots.

    :scratchin Or are you a Lodger and a BoardWalker:confused3. Well, at least your kids won't be with you when you're BoardWalking:laughing:

    We didn't have any problem either. It's less than a 5 minute walk back to the lobby. I think the only parking issue I might have read about are those who aren't staying at BWI/BWV who try to park there because they have an ADR.

    Welcome! I'm sorry I can't answer your question, but I know one of our DVC/BWV experts will soon:listen:

    I don't know if any of them connect, or if they are in more than one area (helpful, aren't I?). However, the most popular garden/pool view studio request recommended here is the Village Green (the area above the wyland gallery) because of the good views and proximity to the elevators. That whole area is only studios. We usually stay in a 1BR, so we haven't stayed there ourselves, but people seem very happy with it.

    Just did my online checkin. What a pain! I am not loving the new website changes. Very annoying and frustrating.

    Anyways, my last family trip we had 3 studios at the Boardwalk and were over the Wyland Gallerys (praying we get to stay in that area again this trip as we have 2 rooms and my parents and the proximity is great). Last time all 3 of our rooms were in a row but there was no connecting doors. I don't think they would do that for studios, only connecting for a 2 bedroom, but I could be wrong.
