OKW: pretty much love everything about it. I guess it is a toss up between the large rooms and the relaxed feeling you get as soon as you get there and hear that steel drum music.

Dislike: If I have to pick something I guess it would be that it is not real close to any of the main parks.

AKV: Really like the theming and relaxed feel.

Dislike, and this is one I bet you haven't heard yet but I biggy for me. The king sized beds are to high. I absolutley hate having to climb up onto the bed and need to jump down at night when I have to go to the bathroom. I probably won't stay here again because of this. Usually being short doesn't bother me but this one does get to me. It is not a good feeling. I doubt I am the only one. Just the only one to complain.

AKV - love the relaxed feel of the resort, the animals, activities, the isolation of the resort; hate the lack of a zipline to AK.... That would be just AMAZING!!!!

OMG - this is SO TRUE! Just got back from a 2 week stay at BWV. Busses are HORRIBLE.

BWV is my 1st home resort (joined in 2000) and I will always love it....but next time I stay there I'm renting a car!

My other home resorts

Hilton Head Island.....love the beach house BUT hate that we've only been here 5 times in 13 years

Saratoga Springs - love the beautiful grounds, the quiet pool at Congress Park, the short walk to DTD.

Animal Kingdom Lodge - love everything about it! Great restaurants, pools, animals (of course).

Bay Lake Tower - The location is good...but not worth using extra points to stay here.

AKV--love the theme, animals, CMs, CL, low point value rooms. Hate--everyone saying how "far" it is from everything. It's next to AK and so easy to hop a bus to anywhere from there!

Interesting to hear everyone hating on the bus service at BWV. This is the resort I've most wanted to try--until we took a bus there from MK last year. The bussing is RIDICULOUS with the amount of resorts that share. It was a deal breaker for me and I will probably never stay there now

WOW! It boggles me that so many resorts share a bus to and from the parks.

Right now we are booked at AKV Kidani in June and we waitlisted BWV... Now hearing the horror stories about the bussing, I am so torn what to do if a studio opens up at BWV. One of the main reasons I wanted to stay at BWV was b/c of the close proximity to HS and Epcot, but now I'm just so confused on what to do.

Own at two:

BCV- Love the location - close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios
- Dislike - lack of view from balcony - how run down it's getting
AKV - Love - Everything...literally, Dh and I both love this resort - the decor,
the food, the cm's, the laid back feel (Kidani), the animals.

SSR: Love proximity to DTD and pools. Hate the bus system.

AKV: Love that part of it is in Jambo house. It is just absolutely breathtaking. The amount of research that it must have taken to create it, the authenticity, the craftsmanship. I feel like I am so blessed to be staying inside an architectural genius' vision and the work of so many supremely talented people from so many walks of life when I am there. It is a fully realized work of art down to the smallest details. Don't love the long hallways.
