Help me decide...

Hi all! I am planning a trip for Thanksgiving 2012 for my mother and I. I am having trouble deciding between AKV, VWL, BWV, or OKW. I've previously stayed at AKL and OKW and loved both. Can't decide if I want to try something new or go with what I know....HELP! Any suggestions, comments or ideas would be deeply appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Also, side note, when do they put up the Christmas decorations in the resorts?

I say give VWL a try. The resort will give a good push into the Christmas Holiday, with that rustic country feel.

A second vote for VWL. The Christmas decorations are the best of any resort on the property.

Book where you own at 11 months out. Then see what might still be available at 7 months out.

Favorate of Mine is VWL

Agree, book what you can at 11 months then check back at 7 months as things may fill up on you being a holiday weekend. I would say VWL, has a nice food court where as BWV will not (my family loves the quick service meals, we don’t want to have expensive sit downs all the time) and the rooms open to interior hall ways verse OKW which will open to the outside. If you like AKL than you will also like the feel of the Wilderness Lodge.

VWL seems to be the best decorated resort for the holidays.
