We are staying at AKV for only three nights in April and still booked a 2BR even though the 1BRs have two bathrooms. I'm with you on BWV and BCV - I would not buy those resorts as a family of five unless getting enough points for a 2BR. I think AKV and BLT are good resorts for a family of five planning to stay in 1BRs, although we actually bought at OKW (sleeps five in a 1BR, but only 1 bathroom). Ultimately OKW worked out great, though, because the 2BRs require fewer points than 2BRs at other resorts. Good luck with your decision. It took me a while to figure out what we wanted, but eventually I did and have been very happy with our purchase.

This is very good information for all of us newbies.. we're also family of 5..and we have not stayed at all of the resorts.. but good to know if we add on more points..
