    You're welcome, Besides what AirGoofy mentioned, we just love walking right over to Epcot - so many great choices!

    :beach:

    Thanks for the great advice!

    Thank you for all your wonderful photos and TR. Did you still stay at Jambo CL? You know that you've officially entered the Resort Changer ranks:laughing:. Isn't it exciting changing on-site? Great choice:thumbsup2

    You guys are really going to get a whopper of a storm. I hope you don't lose power and stay safe and warm.

    It was my most exciting resort change ever! We entirely cancelled AKL so that we could continue our BWI stay. I would have booked it 3/Poly and 5/BWI in the first place, but my husband wanted some time away from the parks over the weekend. That's why we originally booked AKL for the end of the trip. But when we arrived, we remembered how much we love BWI CL, and the proximity to Epcot and all those dining options just can't be beat. So happy we decided to make the change. You're right - fun to start thinking of it, then discussing it, then reaching consensus of five family members on the change, then waiting to see if they had availability and could apply our AP discount. And then we received a call from Pete during our dinner at Bluezoo saying that it was all going to work out. :)

    Thanks for your pics here and on the Poly thread. I have your three planned stays spread out throughout the year (except BWV instead of BWI, but close enough. :) )

    No, the carousel is just a small display in the lobby

    We just got back from a wonderful week in rooms 4040/4042 (2br lock off) They looked out onto the Luna park pool, we're close to the elevators, and very convenient. We found the walks to DHS and EPCOT to be very easy and the boardwalk itself a blast! I think we'll try to stay at this resort from now on!

    Was there any noise from the refurbishment of the pool? That is my only concern for my next trip. I don't mind overlooking the pool while they are working on it, but I'd rather it wouldn't be super noisy with construction.

    Hi Everyone :wave2:

    My DVC waitlist just came through and I will be staying at BWV for 4 nights in April. This is my first time at the resort. I cannot wait to read the thread and take in everything the resort has to offer!

    for the end of Sept. Standard room. hubs and 3 kids 4,6,8. 1st time for BWI, I normally request a room by the big pool and close to a bus stop. Will that apply for BWI?

    From the pics in this thread, looks like the kids will have fun with the slide!! I can't wait!!

    The BWI rooms aren't as close to the themed pool as the BWvillas are. You are on the opposite side of the building. Plus there is only one bus stop, but that is on the BWI side of the entrance.
