Since BCV is behind the BC, there really isn't much in the way of views. A courtyard view or a quiet pool view, either are nice views. Some request a Epcot view which really isn't a view and you might get the road below.

We enjoyed seeing the Epcot fireworks from our room. Ask for a higher floor so you can't hear the road as much and will be above the trees.

What is the difference between a 1-bedroom dedicated and a 1-bedroom lock-off?

I have never seen this at any other resorts we have stayed at......

we requested a higher floor to see fireworks. Think we got a 5th floor room. We saw them, but you also get a bit cutoff of the view from the treetops. Still worked out well! Good luck!

1 Bedroom at BC

I see on the map that they have 1-bedroom dedicated and a 1-bedroom lock-off

Everyone's idea of a great view is different. However, my favorite villa was studio 422. It was very close to the elevators, but being off on the little "jog" to the left made it somewhat quiet. It also gave me a great, straight-on view of the fireworks. However, if you have little ones with you, be aware that the lower part of the balcony is solid-



The lovebugs there were just that year-everyone was talking about how it was the worst year ever.
The location is also close to the laundry.

At several of the resorts you have a choice of a 1-br dedicated and a 1-br lock-off. A lock-off has a connecting room to a studio, and can also be booked as a 2 br lock-off, one door opening to the 1 br portion, and another door opening to the studio part.

Dedicated rooms have only one door to the outside, whether they're studios, 1-br or 2 br. In 2 br, the second bedroom has an extra closet, rather than the studio kitchenette.

We've only stayed in a 1 bedroom, but I always request an upper floor Epcot view. Twice we had our request honored. The road never bothered us and it was cool to see at least the higher fireworks from the balcony. It was also a lot of fun because we could clearly hear the band in England! Last stay we overlooked the quiet pool and canal which was fine as well. The only thing I didn't like was that we couldn't control the balcony light (maybe because it was over a public area) so it came on at dusk and stayed on until dawn. Bummer for us because we like to sit out there at night and enjoy a glass of wine and I felt like I was under a spotlight in my jammies for all to see!

If you go to DVCNEWS.COM go to BCV room finder - many of the rooms include pics of balcony views.
