It isn't quite as close as GC is to DL and CA Adventure, but it is pretty nice. Then the added benefit of the SAB pool probably pushes it over the top. When you are in the area though it might be worth swinging by WL to check it out. It is a short boat ride from MK, and might be worth a visit.
Enjoy your trip!
Thanks! I realize the distance won't be quite comparable, but sounds pretty manageable. I definately will check out the WL though... and maybe next time...

Note that most rooms at BC do not have a full balcony. Next door at the YC almost all rooms have a balcony. You may want to consider YC also.

When we go to DL, we stay at DLH not GC because we have stayed at WL several times, and to us GC is just a scaled down version of WL. It is beautiful, but we'd rather stay someplace "different" at DL. If you love GC you will really love WL (except for the lack of a theme park entrance right there), but in my opinion you should try something different. Being used to walking into parks at DL, I think BC is a good choice for you since you are right by Epcot, and in walking distance of DHS. If you only have 4 days ( I would recommend 5 if you can), you probably won't have much, if any, time for the pool, but it supposedly is the best on property. We've stayed at WL and the Poly, but not BC. We love the Poly, it is right next to the TTC (travel and transportation center), so you can easily walk over there and grab the express monorail to either MK or Epcot. We loved that! I have heard rumors the Poly is scheduled for a refurbishment next year though. Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of those choices.
