    My family is coming down and staying in a Grand Villa and as we were routing around in pictures on the internet we came across a picture of a two story Grand Villa at Boardwalk. Does anyone know where we can find current pictures of this and a floorplan?

    Thank you!!!!

    We have stayed in both grand villa types and recently BLT GV MK view.
    As for grand massive size the single floor punches the most WOW factor in its massive size. Both are gorgeous wichever you might get there is no upstairs secondary entry though in the 2 story, however you do get a romeo and juliet balcony overlooking the livingroom in the 2 story.
    The 2 story does seem more cozey than the single story and has no oversized full laundry room complete with top loading washer with wash basin.
    The decor makeover makes the 2 story just enviting and warm.

    The Grand Villas at BW are one floor and have a view of the BW.

    There are 5 one story and 2 two story grand villas at BWV. That site only shows the one story floor plan.

    There is a picture of the two story entrance here but it was before the renovation:

    We are at BWV now doing our big family trip and one of our rooms is a 2 story GV. I begged MS to try to get us a one story and MS even called the room assigner 1 week before we arrived but no luck. We have 2 - 1 year olds staying in the GV and I was worried about the steps. Mousekeeping brought a baby gate but that makes it almost impossible for adults and other kids to get up the steps. So we ended up putting the ironing board across the steps between the railings (at least the ironing board got used for once! :rotfl: )
    I also looked online for photos of the 2 story GVs before we arrived without luck. I tried to take pictures when we got here but they did not turn out well because my point-and-shoot does not have a wide enough angle lens. The unit is actually much nicer looking than the pictures show. The view is SPECTACULAR. All 4 of our rooms are on the 5th floor. We haven't been on 5th for a few years and I had forgotten how much of Wishes and Illuminations is visible from here.

    Kitchen. It is not terribly large but our family doesn't really cook on vacation.

    The dining/living area is nicer and larger than this photo appears. There are 2 separate doors to the balcony:

    View from balcony to the right. I didn't take a photo to the left (dumb of me because you can see a lot of Wishes):

    Master bedroom and bath on first floor. There is a window, no balcony. It is just like the master in 1 and 2 bedroom units except that there is no connecting door between the jacuzzi bath and the shower/toilet.

    Upper floor bedroom and bath. Both bedrooms/baths are the same except one has a balcony and the other has a window.

    I forgot to mention that one of the upper bedrooms has a small balcony overlooking the living room. Oddly the balcony doors have windows with no covering so light from downstairs shines in. This was a problem for baby naps.

    The single story GVs have a full size laundry area. The 2 story ones only have a stackable set and it is upstairs.

    Here is a photo from the outside. The 2 GVs that are 2 story are in the yellow painted area, the top 2 floors (floors 5 and 6). They are right next to each other, 5037 and 5035.

    Wish I had better photos to share but these will give you some idea. The family members who are staying in the GV love it. DH and I are happy that 5 kids under 5 are in the GV and we are in a nice, quiet 1 bedroom down the hall! :lmao:
