We are DVC members and used our points this trip to book a Boardwalk view here. We last stayed here in 2002 but had a standard view. Now we tour the parks at a more leisurely pace, are down to one kid who comes with us, and spend more time in the room, so a view is a big deal.
We walk, and walk, and walk to the room, three doors from the end of the hall--and open the door to a beautiful view of the Yacht and Beach clubs, Epcot ball, and the Boardwalk from Big River Grille down to ESPN. We were in the "crest o' the wave" section, fourth floor so we had a nice high room.
I did not notice anything wrong with this room. We like walking to Epcot and the studios or taking the boat. My husband and son had great relaxing time on the balcony each night. Some people complain about the boat horns (some people complain about everything) but we found them relaxing. I did not sleep well but that was more due to my husband's snoring--the bed was very comfortable!
We bought refillable mugs and walked to the bakery to get them--try the canolli!
We went to the front desk a couple of times to pay off our charges with gift cards and had nothing but stellar service. Bell services was also very helpful on check in and check out days. We had "checked in" online and were met at the front door by a very helpful man named Ryan (I think) who gave us our room number and welcome packet--we didn't even have to go the desk. Our room was ready when we got there at 12:15 or 12:30--but in all honesty we have NEVER had a room ready early before in any Disney property!
I can't describe how much we enjoyed this. In fact after our next quick weekend at BLT I will try to book our other trips in the future here. Our points are based at Saratoga Springs but even a pool/water view here would be great for us!
