Doesn't look good for me trying to swap over at the 7 month mark - we want a studio too.

We had an Epcot view (as such) when we stayed here before. We could see the Eiffel tower from our window LOL!!

First time we stayed in a 1 bed we had an Epcot view. We could just see the Eiffel Tower from the balcony and could see across to MGM as well - I think we could see ToT. I had always wanted an Epcot view as I wanted to be able to watch Illuminations from the balcony but I cannot remember that we did this or even that we could see much of them.

Last time we ended up with a quiet pool view which we found was better. We had a double length balcony which was great. We were on the 4th floor (cannot remember room number) quite a way from the main elevators but near to a second elevator which went straight down to the pool area. This was ideal for early morning swims.

I wouldn't get too hung up about where you will be - they all have pluses and minuses. Just enjoy what you get - you are at Disney after all!

Thanks for checking for me - could you check 28th Oct - 5th Nov in a Studio for me

Jackie the BCV is a great resort, you will all love the pool and the short walk to MGM and Epcot.

When we stayed there last year we got a room right near the lift, the view wasn't great as it was lover the courtyard where you walk into the villas but we liked the location as I could get down to refil our mugs and get snacks in just a few minutes. I really wouldn't be too worried about the view, the best thing about being at BCV is Stormalong Bay and walking to Epcot.

Good luck with the rest of the booking

I have to say I agree about not worrying over the view. None of the villas have great views it is definatley location and stormalong bay that count. Anyway, how much time are you going to spend looking at the view LOL

We are at BCV right now. Have a 1 bedroom villa with view out over a small wooded area across to Epcot. It is a very quiet and peaceful location. The view of the fireworks is excellent. We have stayed in a studio before but find the 1 bedroom villa much better. The Studio only has a queen bed while the 1 bed is a massive king bed, much better and more comfortable. Also the sofa beds in the studio are not very good, my daughter prefered the floor it was that bad. The sofa bed in the 1 bedroom villa is superior in every way.

Ahh bless Jackie. Have you stayed at Wildernes Lodge before???

We are trying to split our trip between BCV and VWL We stayed at VWL for about 4 days about 3 years ago and it was lovely, even though we had the 'Dumpster View'


THanks for checking about the studios
