It would be nice to have a firework view (Epcot) - and also would be nice to be within 4 - 6 rooms of the elevators.

I know my choices are pretty limited with standard view and I don't think they will upgrade us.

Any suggestions!?

thanks!

We rented points on a one bedroom in January and we were all the way at the front of the resort facing the small waterway next to the parking lot and it was very quiet. We actually never saw anyone down that way the entire 4 nights we were there. And one thing we liked was that there was a door to the outside walkway to the bus stop, so we didn't have to trek all the way back to the lobby and back down.

You will not be upgraded unless the villa you are supposed to get is the very last one bedroom villa with a standard view and it has to be suddenly taken out for maintenance. You don't want to even mention "upgrade" to the front desk when you check in. They will charge you extra points and you don't own them.

There is only the one elevator bank, so if you want to be closer to the elevator, ask the member to request close to the elevator.
I just wanted to say that you have helped me a lot in my planning... Since I discovered DISboards and renting a year ago - you always let us know what to expect and how to request the best possible locations! and that is in all the DVC resorts we had stayed at.. 3 so far.... So THANKS.... very much appreciate all your help!

Time is speeding up, that's for sure! Guess we'd better start those to-do lists.

Just checked in to BWV. We are overlooking the clown pool, and looks like we are just above the campfire. It's a great location, but a little louder than I expected due to the pool. Nothing we can't handle though. We are just resting now, hoping for our bags from VWL, and major thunder just cracked over our heads. Good times. Suddenly the pool sounds empty. Lol. Loving our trip!

Just be thankful that they disconnected the elephant that used to trumpet every 5mins( I may be exaggerating, but it seemed that bad). Enjoy your trip!

Espresso Martini?! No wonder you're up so late (or are you still on CA time?) Sounds like even though you're REALLY out of points, you're having a great time - what's on schedule for today?

Late start, but spending the day at DHS, and eventually diner at Epcot (Chefs) and Illuminations. It really is great being this close to Epcot and all the dinner choices.
