Unfortunately, you probably won't get the dedicated two bedroom with two queen beds in the second bedroom because there are only 25 of them and they go very quickly. People who wound up with the combo dedicated (queen and sleeper) probably wait list the dedicated with two queens when they can't get them.
Wow only 25? Oh well, thanks for the info. Like I said I am not really too concerned about getting something because we have blt reserved which we really liked, just didn't think it would hurt to try or wait list somewhere else.

We own at both BLT and BWV. That being said, we have stayed at BCV in the past and are staying there twice this year (May and September). We are also staying at BWV (October and November).

You really can't go wrong with either. Although we own at BLT, we prefer to stay at the EPCOT resorts and move our reservations often at the seven month mark. If you value pool time, I'd suggest you stay at BCV. Otherwise, I'd stay at BWV for the ambiance and evening entertainment.

Good luck with your waitlist (whichever you choose).

Same with us, Lisa. I booked a 1BR standard view for a Sun-Weds during F&WF just this past Friday. I wanted BCV, but it wasn't available. For 66 points for three nights, it was a no brainer.

Sometimes it's going to be about what you can get, and for us, all the resorts have something great to offer.
