Tell us 1 thing you love, and 1 thing you highly dislike about your home resort.

If you are like me, there are things that you adore, and things that you would change about your home resort. Lets hear 1 from the love column and 1 from the highly dislike column.

Ill go first:

BLT, love the morning walk to the MK. Hate the minimal amenities at the TOTWL.

Next batter!!!

Well, we own at both BLT and SSR and the only one I can comment on is SSR since we will be doing our first BLT stay coming up.

At SSR we loved the feel of the resort and the atmosphere. We felt so relaxed there, almost like we weren't in the middle of WDW. What I wasn't in love with, but did get used to it after our first day, was the bus system and the fact that the whole resort is so spread out. We were in Congress Park and it felt like forever to get back to our room after a long day at the parks. We did decide that the next time we will stay at SSR for a longer period of time (when we stayed there it was for 3 nights), we will either drive and have our own car or rent a car. The same will go whenever we stay at OKW.

We own multiple contracts, all at OKW. We love the ability to park right outside your villa (among a multitude of other things). I wish there was room service ( although I can understand why there isn't).

Best location and best view (boardwalk) on site
Worst bus system in the universe.

BLT here. On the pro side, you can not beat the convenience, and I love the Monorail and Top of the World lounge and the views (you can see the Fantasyland construction and all the fireworks!) On the con side, it'd be nice to have a little area where you could get things like hot water, coffee, danishes, etc. for breakfast instead of having to go all the way over to the Contemporary -- but that's it.

VWL
Best - The theming and proximity to the MK
Worst - Toss up between the dumpster view and the fact they won't just let me live there!

BLT - love pretty much everything but I do hate that there are no sheer curtains in the rooms.

BWV - love the location of the resort and the BW views but hate how they fill the mugs in a different cup.

OKW love the fact u can pull right up to door, love the atmospere, Olivia's, the boat ride to DTD. Dislike, I would say the buses but I do not like any Disney buses, we now use our own vehice to go to the parks.

WL love the look of the resort, location, boat ride to MK, Roaring Forks, Artist Point. Least favorite pool area of all the resorts we have done.
