    Hey Y'all!

    Maybe you remember me from a few pages back when I posted about help with my brother's engagement? Well sooo much has happened since then, and we are well on our way with all the plans. I can't wait to see all of this come together!

    My question is this..We have worked with Disney Events and Conventions to arrange everything for the secret surprise dinner in the Garden Suite. Now we just have to figure out how to get his gf there!

    She thinks they are staying at WL, and they are, the first night. As far as she knows they are going over to BW for a dinner reservation at Flying Fish.

    I will be checking into their room earlier in the day (ressie is in my and bro's names) so that I can meet with all the people involved in this..floral, photographer, etc..so there won't really be a need for them to check in at all, BUT, while I was thinking about the check-in process, it got me wondering if concierge might be willing to help us out with "a plan".

    You know how they meet you out front for check-in right?? Sooo...I was wondering..what if we could get them to wait out front for my bro and gf to arrive..I can let them know EXACTLY what time they will be there, show them a pic, etc..and then have them, idk..ask if they would mind answering a few questions for a survey or something?? Then maybe act like they will need to go to "the location" to participate, and lead them to the cottage?

    Crazy I know, but it's all I've got right now!:rotfl: IF they'd even be willing to help out!

    Anybody else got any ideas??

    I know when we stayed there they randomly asked us if we wanted to take a tour of the Steeplechase Suite (Um...YES!!) so maybe they could ask them if they wanted to tour a garden suite? The whole 'follow me to this random room to take a survey' thing would creep me out, but I guess if your brother knew about it and was in on it maybe it wouldn't :)

    I didn't think about it being creepy, but I see your point!:lmao:

    I guess I was just thinking since we are all frequent Disney travelers and have been stopped many times for surveys that she wouldn't really think much about it. At best I thought she might start to get suspicious, but figured it didn't really matter at that point.:goodvibes

    Ooh ooh..what if we could have the concierge ask if they happen to be headed down to the Boardwalk area? Of course bro and gf would say yes, and then maybe they could say something like.."well do you mind if I walk with you and ask you a few questions about your experience so far", etc...then they could just be led in that direction?

    See part of the problem is NONE of us know exactly where the Garden Suites are located!

    I've just read they are kind of out of the way, so I thought if I could get someone to lead them there it would be perfect! Plus if that is NOT actually on the way down to the Boardwalk, gf wouldn't know the difference anyway!:rotfl:

    It's worth it to ask IPO. However, the people that work in IPO are not the same cast members that work at the hotel.

    Here is an idea... Years ago when my kiddos were very small, they asked if we were going to be able to eat at CRT. I told them no. However, I really did have ADR's. Before we left for WDW, I printed up an "invitation" for each girl that said basically that Cinderella was inviting them to the castle to dine with some of her closest princess friends. While they were sleeping the night before our ADR's I put the "invites" near the door as if they had been slipped under it. Bless their lil hearts, they still think it's real. Soooo, with your very creative mind maybe you could come up with some type of "invitation" that is "delivered" to your brother's room the first night. The invitation could be that they are invited to tour the concierge lounge or that they have an upgrade to the BWI concierge level.

    I think helping your brother is so very cute. He's lucky to have you for a sister. Please, please keep us informed. :goodvibes

    Hi fellow Boardwalk lovers!!!
    I have been following this thread since we got back from our Dream cruise in Feb, where we bought into DVC at Boardwalk Villas. I have been afraid to post, as I didn't want to jinx anything, but our contract has now closed, and we will be coming "Home" for the first time in November. I can't wait and am so excited! We booked a 1br standard view. I can't wait to have all that extra room!:cloud9:

    Thanks everybody!:goodvibes

    We have a little somethingsomething in the works, and I will definitely keep you all informed! I'll also make sure to come back and post all of the pics of the Garden Cottage all dressed up for the big night!
    Ahh..it's gonna be sooo hard to keep this a secret until May!!

    I'm just so happy with everything that has been done to make this happen so far! We were even able to work out with the chef for the surprise meal to be food from the Flying Fish!

    My poor brother is so nervous that he had convinced himself that his gf is so pumped about the dinner she thinks she is having there, that she would be disappointed when she realized that they actually weren't eating there at all.:rotfl2:

    I think she would get over it.;) But now she won't have to!pixiedust:

    Welcome home. We have only stayed in studios with our Boardwalk points, but are considering a 1 BR for 2014 trip.

    Welcome home!!! We always book a 1 bedroom. My favorite part (other than the full size fridge) is being able to pack half as many clothes, as we just toss a load in the wash, when we go to dinner, and toss them in the dryer after we get back!

    That is awesome!!! I can't wait to see all the pics after it is done!

    Thanks! I think we will mostly book studios, but we had some bonus points we have to use, so are splurging for the 1br.
    Thanks! I think that will spoil me! That and the large tub. :cloud9:

    Just booked a new reservation for December and wondering if the pool is finished and if anyone has seen it?

    I can't stop planning!

    Yes, the pool is completed and open. We were there last week. The pool re-opened on Tuesday or Wednesday. It was too cold for me, but there were plenty of people swimming and kids using the clown slide.

    Thank you so much! We stayed last November at the BWV for the first time. However, we missed the Christmas festivities so we are targeting the first week of December this time hoping that the lobby will decorated and we can see the lights. Wish I could buy in the BWV but I fell in love a little too late...

    First week of December you'll definitely see full decorations. We usually go the week before Thanksgiving, and everything is going up right about when we're checking out.

    Your ticker isn't posting so I fixed it for you. You just need to delete what you have in your signature and instead post this:

    But, be sure to add [​IMG] to the end or copy and paste the address into the postcard "insert image" icon in the tool bar above when you are replying to this post. Then, your ticker will look like this:
