I only stayed at BCV once, and thought everything was great. we were in a studio, so didn't have many appliances.

but as far as the theming goes, we loved it!

The rooms should be well maintained, clean, fully stocked and fresh. Anything less should be unacceptable. If they need additional CM's to do the job correctly, then hire additional CM's. Inspect the rooms prior to occupancy and take it out of service if there is an issue.

Disney Resorts has a budget for maintaining and servicing the cash rooms so I can see why they work hard to keep costs low, the money reduces Disney's profit. DVC also has a budget but if it is too low to get the job done correctly, then increase it, the money doesn't come from Disney, it comes from us.

Right on, brother! Couldn't agree with you more. Sounds so simple. I'm willing to pay more if they would get it right!!! We get what we pay for.

We were at BCV in a 2 bedroom in the beginning of August. In the middle of our stay, they sent up a new couch for the living room area... I didn't notice any wear and tear in the old one, but the new couch had different colors. So I don't think they are planning on changing much any time soon. I love the theming of the rooms and I would be extremely upset if they changed it.

We are at BCV now - our first stay here. And while there are things that I really like about it, I remembered this thread as I noticed all the wear and tear. The drawer under the stove is broken - getting to the pots and pans under there is like breaking into Fort Knox! Lol! The side rails on the inside of the refrigerator door are missing. Not a big thing, but the fridge is small to start with, and not having it for storage was actually a challenge for us. Our room is adjacent to the public laundry room, and there was a machine off balance in there for two days. The first night the walls to our room were vibrating, and we sort of freaked out. It literally sounded like a helicopter was landing on the roof of our room. We went out in the hallway to see what was going on and found the laundry room that way. The machine looked like it was part of a thrill ride! Lol! The people whose laundry was in the machine were mortified and they were trying to stop it. After the cycle ended so did the show. I figured they would have informed maintenance. Wrong! :-) So the next night when it was happening again I called down. Hopefully tonight we're in the clear. One of the two elevators in the building has been down for two days. Etc.

These are not all huge issues necessarily - and we certainly haven't let it keep us from having a lovely time here. But it certainly does seem like BCV is due for some work.

Just curious-do you mean one of the two elevators that are side by side, the main elevators? Or the one at the other end of the building? It certainly sounds like an Email to dvc member satisfaction is due. That's awful!

One of the two main elevators is down. In their defense, I saw them working on it several times. I've always wished there were open stairs right next to the elevators like on DCL. I'd gladly take the stairs then.

Our room (345) was in good shape, better than our last couple of rooms at BCV. Noise is a problem though. Some of the appliances are old and loud. And I wish there was a soundproof door on the laundry closet.

All in all we thought BCV was in good shape. Our only real complaint was the Marketplace. The food is limited and horrible, and it always smells like burned toast.
