However, I just discovered that I can book a preferred-view studio at BWV for around $200 more (including resort and parking fees from S/D). Now I can't decide and would love your opinions!

Pros to S/D:
Two beds as opposed to 1 bed and sleeper sofa (DD is a kicker so I won't share a bed with her)
Better pool area (from what I can tell)
Rates might drop later
Refundable deposit
Better on-site dining

Pros to BWV:
Has the "Disney magic"
Washer/dryer in unit
On the Boardwalk / little bit shorter walk to Epcot
My Magic+ not an issue if it starts before we get there

Magical Express and dining plan aren't a factor either way, and we wouldn't use the kitchenette at BWV enough to matter.

After making my list, it looks like there are more pros for S/D, but the Disney magic counts for a lot with us! So, tell me, where would you stay?

How many nights are you staying? If you sign up for the Starwood American Express you get one free night at swan or dolphin. Free. My wife and I signed up for the card and are getting two free nights there before heading to the boardwalk inn =).
