My two cents: the resort pool is very important to our family and nothing beats Stormalong Bay at YC/BC. The BW pool can be a little disappointing especially if youre not a fan of 50 feet high clown faces

I also recommend the BW vs. the BC/YC because the BW busses are the first on the line. Last year we were at the BW and we would fill the bus for MK. So they would have to skip the other resorts. I am sure they waited a long time. Why we decided to stay at the BC on our next trip I cannot figure out.

I have stayed a all three. We just returned from the BC. I thought the resort was looking very run down, and its just to noisy for me. I love the YC and the BW. It would be hard for me to pick a favorite. The Yc has a better pool, but the BW pool is great too. Both pools are better than any of the Mk resorts. I love the Poly also, but I prefer the epcot area. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the resorts.

Ok, that made me laugh.

But I think that 50 ft. high slide looks like soooo much fun!!! I don't have an aversion to clowns, and don't think looking at that slide would put me off at all -- it's actually one of the pools I've been dying to try!!!

I like all three resorts and think they all have something a little diffrent to offer although the differences are slight in my mind.

I prefer having a balcony because I like to sit out and relax during breaks and evenings. The YC is almost guaranteed to have a balcony as is the BW (I believe) but the BC is hit or miss. All three have decent pools although that isn't importantr to me.

Location seems to be the biggest difference. BW is probably half way in between DHS and EP and has more restaurants and shops close by. YC and especially BC are closests to EP. They have a decent supply of TS restaurants but limited CS.

The buses in my opinion are hit or miss and in all of my stays I never witnessed a consistent pattern of sharing between the BW/SWD/YC/BC. I've had direct buses to each resort, shared with all 5, and had YC/BC share. I wouldn't let that be your deciding factor.

As a PP mentioned you can't beat the look of the Boardwalk at night especially relaxing on your balacony or walking back from the parks. I've stayed at the GF as well as Poly and though they have their benfits will pick an EP resort anytime.

Not necessarily, the bus driver prob radioed in, and another bus may have been right behind to pick up the other resorts. But I seem to remember for MK we didn't share with BWI, The Swan/Dolphin did.
We(BC) shared with YC.
