    Hello BWI compadres. :goodvibes

    The fridge situation has been sorted out, is that correct?

    Also, it'll save me having to bring Via if I can find out the answer to this little question: do they now have the Joffrey's pods for the in-room coffee makers? (Those wee Cuisinart pods were little encasements of hideousness. :duck: )

    But, I know you'll want to eat at CA Grill;). How about a nice, split stay?



    Holaaaaaa! (Say it like Jerry's stomach;)).

    Don't call the lawyers if I'm wrong, but I am under the impression that all recalled fridges have been replaced at BWI and that the J-Pods are in place. Someone smarter will post if I'm wrong, so no worries. Indeed, ingesting the insipid swill that is/was Disney coffee is a risk, but could you flounce over from BWI to Fountain View for your Starbucks or down to the Belle Vue lounge? (...That has no vue)

    Magical erasing RC quill at the ready, ma'am! Enjoy your AKL stay, Mrs. Doolittle;)

    Kook,
    Can you add us to the list too? Booked a studio for 3/5-3/18. Will be our first Boardwalk DVC stay. Looking forward to it.

    I know how this works with you guys - take one off, add another. By the end of the day, it's pretty much even Steven with the Logs. Congratulations and I'm glad it was still available for you. Which reminds me that I really need to book our summer trip soon, too before all the military rates are gone.

    I'd be happy to add you and congratulations on booking your first stay in the Villas!

    The nearest Lobster Roll is at the BoardWalk Bakery. Here is a grand re-opening review with lots of photos. Scroll way down for the LR photo - yum!

    If your DVC, using points, I am quite certain you cannot be upgraded in any way.

    Agreed. With DVC points, you get what you booked. But sometimes cash reservations do get upgraded occasionally. Short stays are usually the best way to make it happen.

    I agree about the dining being no contest, but I also liked the way you wrote it! Well done. :thumbsup2. Thanks for the review. How did Kidani compare? (Hopefully not too off topic!)

    Just wanted to stop in and say hello. Husband and I will be staying at BWI Sept. 20-22 for a quick, kid free weekend! It will be our first time at this resort. Have stayed at YC in the last and loved it. Hoping we will love this one as well.

    Will you post live?

    :yay:
    Did you make any location request?

    You're welcome and I think you're going to enjoy the new BWB. It's gotten positive reviews.

    Hello and welcome! A kid-free weekend sounds great! Though I have heard there are occasionally kids at WDW;)

    I'll add your dates to the BoardWalk Bulletin.
