Well said! CPAP has changed the way DH sleeps completely!

The walk from BLT to CR isn't bad at all. POR you could have a huge walk so it is a good thing none of them want it! If you all want the original resort, then it may just be worth it to book 2 rooms and deal with the price so everyone can enjoy their sleep. Good luck!

DEfnitely go with two rooms. And try to convince your mother to rent a scooter from an offsite company. I rent from apple scooter. You can read about it on the disabilities board. It will meek Everyone's trip much more enjoyable. She can always park it and walk if she wants and the bus drivers are great at helping load. The average person walks 9 miles a day at WDW.

2 rooms at POFQ is a good value and the resort is small with very good bus service. That is where we go when we don't stay in a deluxe.

My mother snores and grinds her teeth. She came with DD and I on a recent trip and we all stayed in the same room. I used "Flent's Quiet Contour" ear plugs and they worked perfectly. Blocked out all sound and buying a pack of those was much less expensive then paying for an extra room!

You should price out renting points for a 2BCV it should cost about the same as paying direct to disney for a 1BCV. You don't have to always pay up front. I rented and payed a 10% deposit and the rest was due 60days from arrival. Just depends who you rent from.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

Earplugs! Worked for me when doing a 1 night stay in a tiny hotel room.

I have family members who snore, and we share hotel rooms when we travel. I have used earplugs, but prefer to use a white noise machine instead. I have an app on my iPad and iPod that works great, and also has an alarm clock as well (hotel alarm clocks and I don't get along very well). We all agreed on the "sound" to be used, and it blocks noise from neighboring rooms too.

As far as where to stay, I would go with whatever appeals to you the most.

The walk from BLT takes about 8 minutes or so and it's not too bad. But, we went with my 63yo mom with a bad knee and it was a little rough on her. She walked the whole week, at a slightly slower pace, but by the time we got to the main gate she felt like she was done walking for the day.

Also at night the monorail would stop running after a certain time and there was sometimes a bus and sometimes not. So one night after a long, long day of walking around the parks, we had to walk back to the resort and I didn't think she was going to make it!

Just thought I'd mention since you said "mobility issues."
1980s & 1990s:
Disney Inn (x2), Fort Wilderness Cabins (x2), Disney's Lake Buena Vista Villas (fav! x2), Caribbean Beach (x2), All Star Music, Wilderness Lodge (x2), Dixie Landings (x2)

5 off-site trips
All Star Music Family Suites
Beach Club
Wilderness Lodge Villas (x2)
Old Key West (x2)
Saratoga Springs
AKL - Kidani Village
Bay Lake Tower

I may have missed some...

I know you have already made your decision, but did you consider two STUDIOS over at Beach Club Villas? They are the same price as a 1 BR and you may be able to negotiate with a DVC owner to make payments. I know I always accepted payments when I rented if it was a long way out.
