    I'm at the point where anything I failed to do ina year worth of planning is popping up in my head. LOL. We do this every year, so it should be BAU. My DW is off tomorrow and I'm off Friday, so we'll collectively cover off any last minute things.

    I know I have seen it here but can't seem to find it...the Deluxe CL rooms on the third floor are the ones with the large balconies, right?

    Thanks for your patience and help.

    The first post in this thread has a link to some Inn & Villa information; where it talks about the Studios it says that the laundry room is on the first floor. That's where I'll start looking next month, at least. :)

    The laundry room is on the first floor near the health club. IIRC, it's pretty small -- I want to say 2 washers and 2 dryers -- so I had better luck trying to do laundry at "off peak" times, i.e. early morning.

    thanks everyone! I thought I saw it said somewhere 3rd floor, so its good to know it may be the 1st floor! I will need it, so thanks again for the info.

    We are at BWV. Had an awesome first day using FPP at Epcot. We have a lovely view of the community hall quiet pool. Super close to DHS. So much space in a 1 bedroom villa!

    That is correct! Third floor has big balconies, fourth floor is closer to lounge. Great rooms, a lot of space.

    Glad you're enjoying! We can't wait for our 1BR next month!

    Speaking of our trip next month, this came yesterday.

    I was worried the blue would be too light (like a powder blue) from the color sample online, but this is perfect.

    I think that on the BWI side, the laundry is on the third floor. That's where the disconnect arose. I did laundry when we stayed in a BWV Studio a few years ago and it was pretty convenient there by the fitness center, but the PP who noted that the number of machines is low was right.

    Since the bands are being rolled out to all resorts now, I have a question. When we go to the BWV in January, there will be four of us. Two will be AP holders and two will have regular passes. Will that make any difference?

    I am cautiously optimistic that we may be visiting BWV from Nov.30-Dec.6 2014 and reading this thread just has me over the moon with excitement.
    We can only afford to do this by renting DVC points so if I can't catch a rental for our dates we are out of luck, but I'll try just as soon as the reservation window opens and hope for the best.

    BWI sounds so fantastic! The option to walk to two parks, the Keister Coaster, the boardwalk, the bakery, the views, oh my!!!!!

    :rotfl2:That's all. I just had to get that out of my system.

    It might temporarily. There are 3 of us going at the end of October. 2 passholders and 1 non passholder. I got a really good deal on a package so I bought room, dining for all nights, but only 1 day tickets for all of us. The passholders will use their unused ticket toward the pass renewal and we will upgrade the third single ticket to a 6 day when we get there.

    I was able to order magic bands for all of us. 2 are linked to passes and 1 to a single day.

    How it impacted us is that when I make the FPP reservations, I can only make it for all three of us for 1 day and the remaining days it is just for the passholders.

    I called Disney and talked to their technology team working the MB/FPP project and they recommended I go ahead and book all FPP for the 2 passholders and the single ticket holder could inherit our selections once we upgrade the ticket to 6 days. That way we will all get what I selected.

    Not sure if you did room only and have all your tickets. If so, just link your passes and tickets to the bands and you should be good.

    Sorry for the novel, but I hope this helps someone else.

    I always have it at the ready:upsidedow

    That's great that you have two trips booked. It does feel strange to book Epcot when you're used to MK, but it's so nice being able to walk to Epcot and DHS - enjoy!

    :yay:

    They look extra spiffy and your wrists will look fab! Can you get any name on them you want or only what's in your reservation?

    Don't give-up on a good general public discount. You'd get housekeeping everyday and you can make all the changes you'd like to your reservation. Good luck and I hope you get to book soon!

    This must be a great time of year to be able to enjoy WDW. Have a great Disney Day:goodvibes

    Let's make that three! I just booked a short trip for this week (my days off are Wed-Fri) at BWV - I check in two days from today! :cool1:

    I kind of go back and forth between the MK resort area and the Epcot resort area. I haven't stayed down near Epcot since early March, so it will be a treat since Epcot is my favorite park. I'm looking forward to some good food and good music (checking in just in time to catch the last Wilson Phillips shows). :cool1:

    Now I need to focus on work again . . . .

    Pamela, thanks. They haven't purchased their tickets yet, but we have our APs. When they do, we'll link them in.

    Can someone confirm toiletries at BWV?

    Got our MB/My Reservations all lined up finally so we are all set. We have been brewing/planning this trip for almost two years. It's finally here.

    Can't wait!
