    I believe that is literally the ONE room without a balcony. I guess they have to give it to someone, but unless the place is fully booked (which I wouldn't think so now), they probably should keep it vacant. Glad your new room is better!

    I have more recent photos of the Sonora Suite. They're not fab quality pics, just pics the kids and I took during our stay last summer. However, they show how the suite looks now instead of pre-renovation. If someone lets me know to whom to send them to update this, I can.

    How old are they? If they're older teens, they'll be thrilled to be 'dumped' by their embarrassing parents, and, it's only an 'after 2' dumping anyway - just enough time for them to either take naps or eat (I'm thinking they're teens here again;))

    Sounds like you had a great first on-site stay and it probably won't be your last. Thanks for letting everyone know about the daybed and I hope you get to plan your next trip to WDW soon!

    The BB is still scheduled to re-open 27 April. How lucky to be at WDW last week and next month:worship:

    I saw your GF post and boy, you really loved that place and had a fantastic upgraded view. The BV at BWI is also fantastic and I know you'll love sitting out on the balcony when you're more rested. Thanks for checking in with us and I hope we hear back from you soon:surfweb:

    Terrific! Thank you! How wonderful you were able to stay in the Sonora. Was it a special occasion?

    You have two options: The easiest is to post them here and I'll just copy/paste/edit them in my Photobucket account and replace them with the old photos, giving credit to you, of course. Or if you don't have them uploaded to a photo sharing site and you can't post them here, let me know and I'll PM an email address to you and you can attach them to an email.

    Were you in a studio, 1Br or 2BR that had the daybed? That would be PERFECT for our girls trip next week, then no one would have to share a bed!

    Circe811...Glad to hear you had a fabulous first trip to the BWV. We fell in love with the resort too. It's so beautiful.

    WDWOswald...Happy to hear you got your room changed to a balcony BW view. Those views are amazing. Can't wait to hear more. Have fun.

    Only a dedicated studio would have the "daybed". It's about crib sized and looks like a deacon's bench. It is located where the connecting door to a one bedroom would have been if the studio connected to a one bedroom. They used to call this a "Studio Plus" and you could request it. But it's not a request any more and just the luck of the draw.

    Does anyone know if they do restricted parking in October during F&W? We love BWI but hate the parking situation. I know during holiday periods they restrict the parking so I am hoping maybe that will help. How much is valet these days?

    I must say the parking is the only thing I don't like about the BWI, I hope they do try to sort it.

    We had to change our dates for our August trip. I had a nice BB rate, but when I moved it to the week earlier, we missed one day. So, I have a "summer room only" rate for the first day and then my BB rate for the rest of the stay. The CM who made the changes was wonderful. Here's hoping my continuing reservation will give us the room we want and that we won't have to switch rooms after a night. The CM said that I definitely don't want to do on-line check in so that the CM checking us in can double check everything for us. (How many time can you use the word "check" in a sentence.) I was able to also change all of our dining reservations by exactly one week -- had to do a 10 minute change for Flying Fish though.

    Now that things are nailed down -- including our flights -- I am so excited for this trip. DD said she is going to wear her Mickey Mouse graduation hat everywhere (we got that for her when DH and I were there last month).

    That's what I assumed, but I was hoping to get really lucky & find out there were 1BRs with the extra daybed! Thanks for the info!

    Question?? We are staying club level and using ME. Do we just take elevator to check in on CL floor?

    Thanks

    There should be a cm with a clipboard who will meet and direct you. If not, tell the bell captain that you're staying CL and he'll escort you up or have someone else do it.

    I also forgot to ask...will we be able to get the "Happy Anniversary" buttons from the CL staff or where would we get those?

    thanks

    We've been given them by the CL CM during check in. You can also pick up celebratory specific pins at each park.

    Their teen years are easy behind them. They're both in their twenties and trust me when I tell you that they will be po'd if we go to a water park without them ;-)
