[QUOTE=wbl2745;45721434]VGC is underrepresented here!

We love the proximity to the parks. Ride Grizzly River Rapids a couple of times, get soaked, and go back to the room in 5 minutes to change. Throw everything in the dryer. Or a 10 minute walk to the room at the end of a long day.

Ditto to this!! LOVE VGC !!!

BWV- Love the access to the Boardwalk for the morning run and evening people watching. I don't like... I am not sure what I don't like! No, I've got it, the buzzer on the dryer always scares the beejeezers out of me!

Love about DVC - taking vacations that we never would have been able to without DVC.
Love about OKW - the size of the rooms that DVC will never match.

Not hate but would like to see changed - A larger Gurgling Suitcase, even though it has been done once, a bigger one is needed.

SSR - love how relaxing it is. We actually like SSR, OKW and SSR because thet are not connected to a park. Love feeling relaxed when we come back to the resort.

SSR - hate that they increased the points needed to stay at THV. They worked so well for our family, but we will not be booking them again unless we have an excess of points.

Love the tropical lushness of the grounds & landscaping!
Hate the hardware on the balcony door blinds they put in during the refurb. What a pain to roll up & down, takes forever!

love the transportation options- monorail, boat, and walk to MK to get a bus to any resort for diners

hate that TOTWL isn't a quick service or casual option- what a miss on that one. it would be busier all day if you could go up and have a light meal.

Love the location. You really cannot beat the entrance from the hotel to DCA!
Hate the expense and size. The points requirements are high especially on the weekends!

I was beginning to think I was crazy when I can never find anything. And even the general DVC merch is lacking!

Love: The emotional rush of coming home again, holding my wife's hand as we enter the resort.

Hate (such a negative word): The tree/shrubbery height inside the crescent tends to block many of the standard room views.
