Just returned for our first stay at BWV. I learned a lot reading this thread. I really liked it, and can't wait to come back. I was a little nervous about staying at a resort I had never been to before. Everything went smoothly. I did online check in and our room was ready when we arrived. I loved our room location. We were in 4085, a standard view studio. It wasn't too far from the elevators, some stairs were right across the hall and the ice machine was right next door. I was afraid we might hear noise from it, but we never did. Our balcony overlooked the front of the resort and we could see parts Illuminations. It took a little while to figure out the layout of the resort, 2nd floor for the lobby and bus stop, and 1st floor for boardwalk and pool. But once I learned my way around it was wonderful. We walked to EPCOT and HS and rode the boat back a couple of times. Riding the boat back from EPCOT was nice because BW was the first stop, however from HS it was last stop. That made for a long ride and it was stuffy inside the boat. We took the bus to AK and MK. The only issue we had with the buses was when we rode it to AK. We didn't have to wait long for a bus, but by the time it made all the other stops (swan, dolphin, and waterpark) it took almost an hour to get to the park. The same things on the way home. The trips to and from MK were much better. I hope next time we come we will have more time to explore around the resort. This time we were just too busy. We did go swimming a few times. On our last night we decided to go the quiet pool since we hadn't been to it and it ended up being movie night. So we got to swim and watch Mulan at the same time. While it is always nice to be home, I am ready to go back. Unfortunately it'll be a few years until I can convice DH to go back and he didn't even go on this trip. He just doesn't like the Disney vacations like DD and I do. Until then I'll have to read the disboards to get my Disney fix.
