    Yeah, this is a terrible picture, but this was Wishes from our deluxe club BW view room in BWI from over the Beach Club. To the person who asked, it's NOT a clear view of the fireworks. If you want to see the July 4th week fireworks, you really should get to one of the monorail hotels or MK itself. But what you can see from the BW is a nice bonus.

    Yeah, with a 2 BR BW view, you should have a great view from at least one of the balconies! (Some rooms have joined balconies, others are split.) I love the BW view.

    Congrats to you and all the others who have just booked!! I hope you love it as much as we do. :thumbsup2

    Thanks for all the responses. We will be arriving at about 7:30, so by the time we get to wdw it may be closer to 8:30 or 9 so we aren't planning on going to the parks. We also are traveling with 2 small children who we need to feed dinner when we arrive as well so what we are hoping to catch is just that little glimpse of it only because it is the 4th.

    I have requested Village Green for our stay in October - I can't wait! Hope we can see some of the fireworks and some sort of the Boardwalk - but hey - I will be staying at BWV :) so it will be amazing :cheer2: I have only been to WDW one other time. I stayed at and loved OKW...but have wanted to stay at BWV since that trip in 2011...113 days!!

    You might get lucky then. If its for the kids, they may be happy with seeing the Illuminations fireworks as well, which you can see much more easily. This year they're doing the special July 4th fireworks every night from July 1-7 (9pm on July 3&4, 10pm the rest of the week), so you might want to try to get closer to MK on one of the following nights. Enjoy!!

    Back from vacation and very behind in posting to my favorite threads:flower3:. Thanks again to all who answered questions:). I'll be back later to multi-quote, but had to post that 6 weeks from today we'll be pulling up to WL. Made a bit of a change on vacation from a non-CL CR room to a CL WL room (same price;)). Still wasn't able to book Atrium, but was able to book Old Faithful:goodvibes

    Beautiful pic, Kook!!



    Here's a question/statement for all you BW veterans....the BWI rooms look a bit more "modern" (if that's the right word) than the villas? I'm referring to the bedspreads/beds. Now I'm second guessing my BWV stay...wondering if I should just do 2 rooms at BWI and not a 2 bedroom villa????? Of course the villas appear to be closer to the infamous clown pool...is that right? :scratchin With 3 kids that may be a plus. I've always wanted to try an EP resort....I'm a bit of an MK resort snob ;) so now I'm getting cold feet.... any thoughts?

    I would not give up the full kitchen and in room laundry, because of the bedding. I am very modern decor person, yet BWV is my home and I love the rooms, regardless of the bedding look.

    Heather... We have stayed in a 2 bdrm at BWV and they are beautiful and very spacious. We had 6 people and still had plenty of room. And the laundry in the room like the pp said is a definite plus. The clown pool is on the villa side also.

    If we were going to spring for 2 rooms in the Inn, I would just go for the villas. JMHO.

    Welcome back WKWKOOK.

    Glad to hear you were able to get Old Faithful for the same price. That's awesome!:cool1:

    Yes the décor is different....the BWI rooms are more upscale, the villas are more shabby chic...haven't been renovated in awhile but still very spacious & casual. I could never give up the space, laundry & kitchen of a 2BR villa for 2 rooms!

    Yes the villas are on the clown pool side (there is also a quiet pool over there as well, and Community Hall is on that side as well.

    Welcome back WDWKOOK!

    Thanks a million! Y'all are completely right....spaciousness should outweigh the décor issue I'm having :upsidedow


    I love your Minnie/Dooney pic in your signature! Wherever did you find it???!! It's adorable. Love my Disney Dooney's, too:thumbsup2



    Right again...makes a little more sense ;)


    I like your description....Shabby Chic:thumbsup2 Think I'll give the hubby that description...sounds much better ;)

    You know, I don't remember who gave it to me, someone on the Disney Dooney Thread designed it. It's been there so long, I kinda forget about it :)

    The thing to remember about BWV is that all two bedroom villas are lockoffs. That means they are a one bedroom villa with the studio connected (door open between the two units). So there are two entrances to the hallway - one from the one bedroom living room and one from the studio (second bedroom). There will only be two real beds in a BWV two bedroom villa - one king in the master bedroom and one queen bed in the studio portion. Then you will have one queen sleeper sofa in the living room and one double sleeper sofa in the studio portion. You will also have a kitchenette in the studio portion.

    The villas do surround the Luna Park pool.

    The BWV were totally renovated about three years ago.

    Thanks, Heather! Well, you know how much I love the MK Resorts area, so I'm not much help with convincing you, but how about a split? How many days is your stay? Do you need a kitchen and laundry?

    Thanks, abk96:)
    I love your shabby chic description, too:cool2:

    I believe it was LuLu'sMom:goodvibes

    Great information, as usual. I'm going to put your rehab info. on the first page. Would that be 2010?

    Thanks a million! And actually that lock-off deal sounds good. The kids won't mind sleeping on a sofa. Lots of times we take one sleeping bag because Jesse likes to sleep on the floor for some strange reason :upsidedow


    We are doing a split....FW cabins first, then on to a villa. We'll leave on Tuesdayish - maybe Wednesday - and go to the cabins. Hubby won't come in until Friday night. We'll check into unknown villa on Saturday. We'll be there 12 days...give or take, so yes we'll need the washer/dryer. The kids LOVE FW because there's soooooo much to do without going to the parks. Golf cart, Chip n Dale, campfire, movie night, fishing, swimming, archery, MBYBBQ....you know how I love that place ;) It's a great place to relax and basically do nothing :laughing: Still leaning heavily towards BWV.

    Another vote for the villas here in your situation, especially needing the washer/dryer. We're "city folk," so we like to think of the decor as "country home," though I'm sure people with real homes in the country would disagree. :) anyway, I'm sure there are pictures on the first page, but more never hurt.

    LOVE em'!!! Especially the one posted with "ignore the mess" :laughing: We definitely need the space. I really like the bathrooms, too! Super spacious!! Our friends are DVC people, and they keep telling us that once we do the whole villa thing, we'll never go back to a regular room :upsidedow

    Early mornings are the "bestest". I'm up with the chickens usually...and maybe the elephants in 2014:thumbsup2 Do y'all like the pool area at BWVs? The infamous clown has always been a bit peculiar to me, but my kids would probably love the slide!

    Thanks!:goodvibes
