    I've looked on the map and can't tell where they might be. We rented points at the BCV in June and loved it but wanted to try BWV next time. Anyone have a favorite studio location out there?! Can you get a Boardwalk view with a studio? Does this cost more?? Thanks!

    When you are facing the check in desk at the BW, the villas are to your right (Luna Park Pool - the scary clown pool is the Villas pool area).

    You can only get a BW view if that is the type you reserved. A BW view is a separate request. Same cost for BWview as other preferred views (water, gardens, etc). Only the standard view is fewer points (mostly parking lot).

    Don't request a specific room by number. Request it by what you want - smoking or nonsmoking, Luna Park view or quiet pool view, handicapped/non-handicapped. High/low. Just have the owner make your requests for you when they make the reservation. Otherwise, you will only be allowed to request something when you check in - which may or may not work. DVC does not fax or call ahead of time to the resort room scheduler. All requests are made with MS by the member.

    If you want a Boardwalk view, you will have to find someone to make the reservation for you 11 months ahead of time. These rooms (as well as the lower cost standard view rooms) tend to book up very quickly. Many times of the year, they book as soon as the reservations window opens.

    You may be able to get a partial boardwalk view by requesting a view of the Village Green. This is the grassy lawn area between the lobby and the boat dock. If you are lucky enough to get a room in this area, you will also have a view of the higher level fireworks from IllumiNations and maybe even those from Wishes (in the distance).

    Best wishes -
