BCV. Vs BWV

Was looking at my dvc book and the 2bdr at bwv is over 100 square feet bigger than bcv. We have always stayed at bcv but want to try bwv. Is the difference in room size even noticeable?

I suspect most of it is in the Master Bedroom closet. No, it isn't noticable. I like the configuration of the dining table better at BCV.

Not sure what book you are looking at but the truth is that BWV rooms are about the same size as BCV rooms. What you are seeing is a mistake that keeps popping up once in a while. The original plans that Disney submitted when building BWV show the rooms to be significantly larger than what was actually built. That size discrepancy then crept into the materials used to sell BWV and then it was corrected and remained corrected for about 6 years. Then in the early 2000s when DVC redid its website, the old, incorrect room sizes were resurrected in the information provided on-line and in some promo materials. They then re-corrected the incorrect information again about four years later.

For a comparison of room sizes that is accurate and shows that BWV and BCV are close to the same go to the Disney Resource Center sticky in these threads: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2823943

It was the hard cover one we got with our dvc package in 2008. Good to know. Not sure what resort we will pick.. We always stay at the beach club but I think we need a change...

I stayed at BWV once and rather enjoyed it! But that BCV pool area is far superior so it depends on what you're looking for.
