    Who is going to be the first trip in our new BOARDWALK BULLETIN?! The BOARDWALK BULLETIN is at the end of Post #1 and is where I'll record your WDW resort (it doesn't have to be BWI/BWV) and dates. I will use magical erasing ink for known resort changers...








    I extend my heartfelt congratulations to you on being FTP, Ginny:thumbsup2. I hope you aren't allergic to strawberries...

    There's no shame in #2 - woohoo! I'm glad you like your new thread.

    And, third place goes to......the one who has the most photos in the DINING portion of this thread:worship:. Thank you for your kind comments.



    I like the subtle Bob Hope reference;). Welcome back to Crescent Lake.

    Nice to see you again:)

    Thank you, Lisa!

    YES! We have a winner! Thank you for pointing out my soooooo 2012:rolleyes2 valet rate information:blush:. I've updated the amount, with tax:teacher:

    Welcome back!

    WL?! No problem, I have a thread for that:hyper:

    I know just what you mean about those resort photos, they really get you excited.

    Welcome HOME!

    Welcome HOME to you, too!

    Fashionably late:snooty:, no problem:hug:. See you over on Bay Lake:boat:

    :wave:
    Thank you, but you know you love them all:rotfl:

    Awww, thank you, Sheila. I hear there's a thread dedicated to resort changers:rolleyes1



    September will be here before you know it!

    Aw shucks, thank you, Janet:blush:. It's an honor to have the POP PRINCESS THREAD HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS stop by:hug:

    You're welcome and I'm glad you like it.

    Well, the resort speaks for itself:thumbsup2

    Welcome, Erin. It can be hard to switch resort gears when your mind is set on something else. SAB is very popular with kids, but the Luna Park pool does have a great slide, the Keaster Coaster and there are two other quiet pools, a hot tub, as well as a water feature area near the Luna Park pool. There is also an arcade and the boardWalk shops and eateries are just steps away.

    I find BWI to be a very relaxed atmosphere and I like that the health club doesn't share with another resort. You're also closer to DHS and all the BWI rooms (except for around 3) have balconies. What's also nice is that with a STD view room, you have the possibility of having a beautiful garden view with the ability to see Epcot and Illuminations from the higher floors.

    Welcome! Yes, my Sea Raycer gets me from Bay Lake to Crescent Lake nicely.

    I'm going to leave your DVC question to one of our great DVC expertspopcorn::

    Welcome home and I'm glad you like your new thread! Do you have your ADRs booked yet?

    At the top of the DINING and in the GUEST SERVICES section on the first page, I have a list of all refill locations.

    Welcome! You didn't have too far to come over;)

    Thanks for posting the link and great information. I have more BB rehab links in the DINING section under BOARDWALK BAKERY.

    I also find refilling at Leaping horse Libations to be more convenient then HH when you are poolside.

    Nothing compares to SAB. But we love walking to DHS from BWI which we don't do from BC

    We own at BWV & BLT. I've only been in studios with a sleeper sofa, but I have a family of four. As for availability, you know how that goes. Maybe here now, gone 5 minutes later. The marathon weekend in Jan was booked for consecutive days, however, there was a studio available in different booking categories. I have only been able to get studio stays standard view at the 11 month window, but if you only want a day or two, you might have luck.

    Fantastic to see a new thread. I have some view photos to add - this is from BoardWalk Inn room #3296, a standard view:

    The view straight ahead was just of a tree.

    So, KOOK do I get a ribbon for being the last poster before you closed the previous thread? :yay:

    Any one else have advise on room requests for a 1 bedroom garden/pool view. This is my first stay at BWV and I am so excited and looking forward to it!

    The last time we stayed at the villas we had a nice top floor view of the quiet pool, canal, and tower of terror. In the distance you could see EE.

    Quiet location and very relaxing.

    WOO HOO add me to the bulletin please.....8/9-14 CL Deluxe!

    58 days & counting! DS12 has NO idea yet...can't wait! Still don't know how to pull of the surprise. I go to Disney frequently so as soon as we hit the airport he'll know. I might just wake him up & tell him to get dressed he's going to Disney World! I'll take any ideas or suggestions!

    I am hoping we can even do a split stay between BLT and BWV just to save a few points, even if we have to waitlist. Is January really that popular of a time outside of the marathon?

    Do the B/P studios at BWV have a sleeper plus a daybed? And the standard studios only have the sleeper?
