    We'll be there from Nov. 30 -Dec.7. We had to switch from a 2 bedroom villa to 2 rooms because we got a free dining pin! We really didn't mind though.

    Where did you put all the people? Great time of the day:thumbsup2

    Thank you for the gratuitous bump!

    I'll add you to the BWB!

    Hope yours was a good one and I think that photo would look mighty fine on the first page - do you mind if I put it up there sometime?

    Glad you're having fun! For a minute I thought the sombrero was real. :). Of course you can use any of my pics as you see fit. I thought it was cool seeing some of my other old pics on the front page already! I have to try to take some good VWL (hard with only one day) or CR pics (no stays planned, and I never seem to take good pics of it) to make those threads. :)

    geez, can't believe it was only a month ago that DD & i returned from the "greatest place on earth": the BoardWalk :cloud9: the parks are just added attractions for us (tho we love the strolls to/fro EPCOT & DHS); it's the BW that we really go on vacation for.

    so:
    10/05 - 10/12 BWV studio, BW view
    10/12 - 10/15 BWV studio, garden/pool view (waitlisted BW view, of course:))

    just DH & I, on our annual F&WF relaxing, meeting up with friends, playing mini-golf, no real plans trip

    Does anyone know if you can see fireworks on 4th of July from Boardwalk and if so, what time? We had a last minute change of plans.and will be arriving July 4. We've never been to wdw on a holiday before so we don't know what to expect. Since we are arriving around 7:30-8 we aren't planning on any parks but are curious to know what it's like around boardwalk area since we are staying there. Thanks!

    We are waitlisted to stay at BWV Villas January 18-25, 2014 and January 18-23 with a split stay at BLT January 23-25, 2014. Worse case if the waitlists do not come through we will be at BLT January 19-25, 2014 just hoping to save some points and stay at a new resort for our family at BWV. I am hoping once the booking window opens up next week for the Grand Floridian Villas that many BWV reservations will open up :goodvibespixiedust::goodvibes and our one of our waitlists will come through.

    Yes you can see the fireworks from the Boardwalk, as well as many of the rooms.

    I missed the start of this thread as we were at the DLR to try something new. It was also great in its own way.

    Our stay will be Oct. 17-21, BWV, 2BR, BW view. DH's 40th celebration.

    Funny enough we have to return to MCO the following weekend for a wedding in Daytona Beach. October has turned into a Florida month.

    There is a BW view picture somewhere in this thread, I thought. I will die if that is our view....pixiedust:

    We are here now and have a village green view. We see a few high fireworks at 9 from Epcot and we can see most of the magic kingdom fireworks at 10. It's nice.
