BWV - love the view, location, dislike that there are only 1 set of elevators. Stupid design mistake.

We have 2 home resorts.
SSR
Love: proximity to DtD
Hate: Open hallways, I don't really hate it I just would prefer it to be totally enclosed.

AKV
Love: 2nd bathroom in the 1 bedroom units
Hate: I really can't think of anything that I hate!

SSR: Love the laid back, relaxed feeling. A bit of an escape from the parks.

Hate that it feels a bit like an apartment complex with outdoor hallways and having to walk through parking lots to get places.

HH: Love the views of the marsh. I am not one of the people that wish it were on the ocean. I love the location on the marsh. (Could go on and on with things I like, but you said top thing we like).

Hate: Not really anything other than no zero entry pool at hotel or beach house. In two years when our youngest is swimming this won't matter to us.

AKV- love sitting on the balcony - love the artwork - love the 'feel' of the resort. No con's for me.

BCV - Love the location - quick walk to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. dislike how rundown it's gotten.

OKW- LOVE: the size of the rooms (especially the kitchen...compared to other villas like BWV and BCV, OKW's rooms are huge :D)
DON'T LOVE: it's not close to any of the four main parks...true you can boat to DD, but that's nothing compared to walking into EPCOT early in the morning and having breakfast in france while your staying at BWV or BCV...OKW is definitely one of my favorites, but BWV may beat it by just a little since you can walk to EPCOT...we used to have points in BWV but unfortunately we only have points in OKW now...

What we love about our 2 DVC Homes (BCV & VGC) is simply - LOCATION,LOCATION & LOCATION!!! We love being close to Epcot & Hollywood Studios & don't visit Magic Kingdom that often because it's too similiar to Disneyland.
We love that Disneyland & California Adventure are only 20 minutes driving distance from our REAL home and staying on property (VGC, DLH, PP & GCH) is an added bonus for us!
VGC in my opinion has THE BEST PARK VIEWS EVER!! Almost all of the rooms have a great view of the park BUT the GRAND VILLA view is SPECTACULAR!!

I love the fact that I can open my sliding glass door and see african animals on a savanna. I love the fact that my two year old begs every day to go back; not to Disney World but to Animal Kingdom lodge.

I don't appreciate the potential long walk if you are at one of the farther beads and I don't like that the only way to get to the parks using Disney's transportation is a bus.

I had to take my time to think of the things I hate - BCV - hate the decor of the rooms (needs some updating)
VGC - NOTHING to hate! Well almost, this might be a teeny common factor for all Villas but their NON STICK frying pans are terrible! That's why I'm glad to be close to home and bring my own! Such a silly thing huh? That's ALL I can think of for now! Hopefully there will be NOTHING ELSE! Loving our DVC!!

Two home resorts: SSR and BCV

SSR: Love the coat hook rack by the front door; can't think of anything I hate, or even dislike...how about "like least?"--that would be that I can't walk to a park, altho it's a stretch to say that since I can walk to DTD

BCV: Love the short walk to Epcot; dislike the bus service, especially to DTD...

I saw you had posted in this thread, and was curious to see what you "hated" lol

We are also VWL owners, my favorite thing is the "feeling" I get there, just so comfortable. I don't really hate anything, but, I wish it was within walking distance to any of the parks. That is one of the reasons we love the Epcot area resorts.

BLT: Best thing is Lake view while sipping coffee in the morning
Worst thing is how grungy the carpeting looks even after cleaning

OKW: Best thing is golf course while sipping coffee in the morning
Worst thing is loud karaoke party in the afternoon...who wants to hear bad singing???
