    yay! Just booked a standard room for March 1-8. We've never stayed at BWI.

    I have a question though, maybe y'all can help me with - Should I get the counter service plan or the dining plan? I feel like, at BWI, with the Boardwalk and World Showcase so close, we'd do better with the CS plan so that we can roam around and have more fast options, split meals from multiple countries, etc. Does that make sense?

    Usually we go the week before thanksgiving so we catch the gingerbread house at the end of our trip. Because of the late TG this year, we went a week earlier and missed it. D'oh!

    Same in November, second drop off after CBR, and after pick up on return just one last stop at CBR before the airport.

    A 1BR, room number 5041, booked BW view, I requested high floor close to elevators. The only negative about the balcony was that it was actually two separate little balconies instead of one big one across the two rooms. Otherwise it was a great room. Some BW noise at night, but nothing unbearable. We've gotten that same room the last two times and we would be happy to get the same exact room on every annual trip!! :thumbsup2

    Please add me to the list of upcoming BWI stays. My husband has a conference in Ft Lauderdale that we just found out about, and of course we can not go to the state of Florida without a Disney visit.:wave2:

    It will be DH, myself and DD8. Feb. 13-17. We will be leaving the teenagers at home.:teacher:

    We have never stayed at the Boardwalk, so I will be watching this thread.

    Hi Kook! We did book the bounceback RO offer for May....but at POR. We have to be a bit more frugal for next year. But it was so nice to splurge this time at BWI. :goodvibes

    We are able to do online check in for our split stay in January. WE have never stayed at BWV. Any advice on room requests for our family? We will have a double stroller and will be going to HS and Epcot.

    This is another test. They are sending out flash drives to people arriving in the first quarter of next year. Early reports are that the drive has 2 links to online videos that explain MDE and FP+.

    Hello WDWKOOK! :wave2: I just wanted to check in with you and say we are booked for Aug 20-24 at a BWI BW-view room. :cool1: I just love it here and can't wait until August! :hourglass

    Off BWI topic: Sadly we changed our March FWC to GF because CRO called me to cancel our Mickey's Backyard BBQ ressies due to a longer than expected reno. We really wanted our FWC experience to be in cooler weather and almost completely FW centric, so we decided we will book it for Feb/Mar 2015 instead. I am keeping up the good fight to stay there ...and to get you that TR. :rotfl:

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, KOOK! pirate: (well, it almost looks like a pilgrim hat!)
