Both resorts are amazing


From a practical view, keep the wait list at blt because its harder to get
When you return on your next trip, it will be easier to get akl than blt. If the opportunity is there for blt, take it!

With kids those ages, you'll probably be at the MK a lot. The walk there and home from BLT trumps anything at AKL, in my opinion. That said, we're staying at Kidani in May and did one night at AKL last year and really enjoyed it.

Both winners, but not having to get on transportation at the end of the night from MK? Priceless! It's the reason I have no interest in adding on at GF when it opens, although DH wants to-- you can't walk home at night.

I fully agreed about the walk home...Priceless...we have taken to add the first or last night at BLT...may have to consider a small point contract!

I was on the wait list for BLT and it only took about a month to be taken off of it. Hopefully you have the same luck!

We stayed at AKV last year and are staying again in June only this time with a Savannah view. I would be happy to call AKV home!

We love both equally but for different reasons. AKL we love the resort, the Savannah view, the layout, the pool, Boma and Sanaa. I see it as a resort holiday and crave staying there and not going out.

BLT we love the location, dinner at Chef Mickeys, Narcosses, Ohana and Kona Cafe as well as the Mk and wishes.

We now always try and do a split stay to have some time at either resort.

All of this talk about "you'll have your car so it will be ok..." has me wondering if I should drive from Nashville in lieu of flying or just fly and rent a car. Is the transportation really that bad from AKL? FYI, this would be during an off-peak time in early October.

We live about two hours west of Nashville and having a car makes a BIG difference to us. We can go off property if we want, don't have to rely on buses/ME etc.

Considering renting points for AKV as well but we will be depending on disney transportation. BLT would be a dream but doubt we could ever afford it. Does anyone go and use the busses? How are they?

The buses are reliable. Why don't you buy some points off of an owner and try to stay at BLT? That is a great way to make it affordable! Most people sell points for about $10 each.
