What time of year are you planning to visit? If it's Christmas time, I'd say GF. Any other time, I'd go BC. Love the access to two parks, all the dining options and the overall feel of the whole Epcot resort area!

All the best.
Perfect! That is the way to go!

Yes...I will actually be there at Christmas time this year for the second year in a row. By far the best resort from an aesthetic point of view was GF. The gingerbread house just blows me away.

BC was nice too. I love all the lights regardless. Still the most important part of resort selection is LOCATION. If you aren't an EC fan don't stay at BC. If you like MK or plan to spend the most time there than go GF.

We've stayed at both BC and GF twice. My vote is for GF! I think the ease of getting to MK is a huge plus. The grounds are beautiful and it's nice to be able to Monorail around to CR and Poly for additional restaurant options.

I was less than thrilled with our BC stay in April - we encountered numerous problems and the staff was not really helpful in fully resolving them. The whole thing soured me a bit on the resort and as much as we love the proximity to Epcot, next time we stay in that area it will be at BWI.

That is unfortunate. I have stayed at BC so many times I lost count and I have never had any issues. How does BWI compare to BC? I have always thought about staying there but then end up booking BC out of habit. I have also stayed at BLT and love that area around CR.
