Exclamation Saratoga Sp. Grand Villa or WL?

I need your advice. My in-laws are taking the entire family to WDW in late Sept. There will be 5 adults and 4 kids (ages 8-12).

We have our resorts narrowed down to either Wilderness Lodge (3 separate rooms) or a 3-bedroom Grand Villa at Saratoga Springs (through Vacation Club rental points).

WL Pro's
  • My family has stayed here before so it's a known entity (it's our favorite resort so far)
  • Decent bus service
  • Boat that goes directly to MK

WL Con's
  • My family has stayed here before and my husband was looking forward to trying a different resort.
  • $2,000 more expensive than the Grand Villa

Saratoga Springs Grand Villa Pro's
  • Um, it's a Grand Villa!
  • Full kitchen, so we can eat breakfast there without wasting time obtaining breakfast at a counter service place
  • Cheaper than the three separate rooms at WL

Saratoga Springs Grand Villa Con's
  • I heard the bus service is terrible here? Is this true?
  • Being a vacation rental, once the reservation is made, that's it. No switching and no cancellations.

The bus issue could be a showstopper for us. We will have three vehicle on premises but we planned to use Disney transportation exclusively rather than deal with the hassle of driving and parking.

Also, if it makes a difference, my Mother-in-Law, who will be traveling with us, is mobile but tires easily due to health issues so we will be renting a scooter for the week for her. If one is more accessible than the other please let me know.

What would you guys do?
