We've always had view of the expansive lawn! Once, bottom floor which I though I would detest, but surprisingly we enjoyed the baby birds just nesting outside, a miriad of squirrels and bunnies, we loved it! The bus noise wasn't bad at all!

We were at the end or begining if you will by the fountain to the right side of the drive in! There's a door right there, convenient!

You guys are so funny!!! It's been so long since we've stayed at BWV the hallways looked like wood planks! 1999!! So no redrum feeling to me then!

The standard view looks fine to me..a good use of points!

Thanks for the great info! Now I just need to snag it at 7 months!

About trees blocking the view...we had a HUGE tree blocking our DTD view at SSR. The tree was gigantic and was so full it touched our balcony. Maybe requeting a ground floor at BWV would avoid that.

We had a BWV standard view last year that was totally blocked by a tree off the living room balcony. Also, we were very close to the elevators and it was extremely noisy because we were above the baggage check in. I would request down the hallway away from the elevators if I were you. I know we will be next time!
HTH!

These first two are from the same balcony...no view at all. We did get to sit and watch the squirrels trying to jump onto our balcony though.....highly entertaining.



This is from a ground level villa..nice area, just walk out of your villa, turn left and the door to the walkway to the bus stop is right there.



Yep, my studio villa was behind all those trees...one floor beneath the top level. Never did get to see IllumiNations from that area.



This one was the fourth floor, at the end of the bldg...loved it. Yes, a long walk, and couldn't see IllumiNations from there either, but it was very peaceful.

The funny part is that we DID request a water view...if you looked through all the branches there was a view of a swampy area. I guess that makes it a water view. Not.

Hi All...We're staying at BWV and We have parents with electric scooters and I was wondering what would be the best preferred view area to stay. Close to the elevator, ground floor, a certain wing? I want it to be convenient for them but would like a good view? Any thoughts?

Also, does preferred view have a view of the boardwalk?

Boardwalk View is reserved at the time of your reservation; it is a specific category. The other preferred view is Pool /Garden. Your reservation will tell you if you have a Boardwalk View.

Much is made about the distance of rooms from the elevator at BWV, which is funny in the grand scheme compared to the total walking one does at WDW. As your parents have ECVs, the distance from the elevators would be irrelevant IMHO.

If you booked on points, a BW view is a select preferred view that usually gets booked up at more than seven months out. If you booked on cash through Disney Reservation Center, you can't get the BW view.

Preferred view is pretty much pool view (either Luna Park or the leisure pool). There is only one elevator bank in the BWV. So if closer to the elevator is what you want, request that. The BW level is the first floor and the lobby is on the second floor.

My husband and I stayed in a BWV studio on our honeymoon way before we were DVC so we booked a package through disney...we did have a boardwalk view, but that was 15 years ago! Has it since changed? only dvc gets the boardwalk view?

Do you think requesting close to tennis would get you far end room?

That would be my guess! I do make a request to be near elevators. It doesn't seem to work very well at BWV.
