As far as I can tell each one has a possibility of being fulfilled at BWV. OKW has the exceptions if your booked in the HH category then a couple of the neighborhood requests couldn't be fulfilled and the lavatories. But that's the trade off if you booked HH. They just aren't 100% smart with the request list but since they aren't guaranteed I guess DVC doesn't particularly care. I don't think it can be argued that you can't be near HH even though not booked into it so that would be a valid request and is an option to choose.
Actually, I think part of the issue is that the request list is there for those who book through CR. If you book through DVC, you must specifically BOOK HH area to get it. It can't be a request as such. I think it probably is the request of "near HH", and that would usually mean buildings 28 or 29. I'd be pretty scared to make that request, since I hope to NEVER have to stay in one of those buildings again.

I was glad to see they added "canal view" to the list. That way, when I request South Point, they will know that I really want one of the canal rooms.

What's wrong with 28 and 29?

Or you could request Miller's Road area and Hospitality House area and potentially end up in 62 or 63 or even 16 without being booked in the HH category. That would be a way to indicate you didn't mean 28 or 29. (I too am curious what is so bad about them?!?! We've been in bldgs 62, 56 and 14 so we have a several areas left to check out.

Canal view must be a favorite request since they had it on the list twice!

29 is very close to the road and the bus noise can be quite an annoyance. We were unfortunate enough to get the studio on the bottom floor next to the road and it really was the worst. We were only there for 4 days so we didn't complain or ask for a change, but whenever we book now I always state any building but 29.

Hey Happy Belated Thanksgiving OKW Lovers!

Just got back from a fantastic week at OKW. We were in #3424, 2bd, villa was in great shape, clean & other than a shortage of TP, it was all good. New key cards worked well. Olivia's for arrival lunch, finally got the famous fried chicken, awesome! Introduced some new friends to the Turtle Krawl from the Guirgling Suitcase. The seven of us had a fabulous time.

Gosh, can't wait to go again!

PS. Not a fan of the Bergemot/Grapefruit shampoo/conditioner,oh well!

That's correct, and neither has much of a view of anything other than very close bushes. I know some like the proximaty to HH from those villas, but I found 29 at least to feel like it took about the same as walking from 45 and 46.

We too just got back from this wonderful resort. We were lucky to get a GV in building 43 (4323) and it was absolutely perfect. Nothing was broken, dirty, or out of place. My family was shocked at the size and beauty of the villa. The crowds were a bit more than usual this time of year but thinned out as the week progressed. We had an awesome time.

Hey DisneyFreaks, this is the exact same GV we had in June of 2011 for my son's middle school graduation vacation! Loved its proximity to the quiet pool & the snack bar!

This one and one in building 15 are my favorites! (But honestly I think any GV would be great!)

You're right about the crowds, at Epcot on Wed night, we almost had it all to ourselves! Friday, it got busier in the afternoon!

This was our first time staying in a GV and we were blown away. Totally spoiled. LoL I just loved the view of the pond and spent many hours on that balcony. It will be hard to beat that room.

We were at Epcot on the last day of F&W and it was a mad house. And so many folks walking around with drinks in their hands (and way too many under their belts ) I used a wheelchair this trip and was terrified of someone falling on me.
