I hear you. It's driving me nuts waiting for it to go on sale. I am impatiently waiting to add on points. I am in the hole for points and even though we were at WDW in July I am already having withdrawals and wishing I could go soon. Would love a trip to check out the new fantasy land.

As far as favorite resort....boy that is tough. I'm sure it will be GFV but current ones I really liked OKW and AKV-K. Have yet to stay at Epcot resorts so that could change.

Aulani and VGC are my favourite resorts. At WDW close between VWL/BCV/AKV for different reasons.

That's the bomb! Diane, aren't those GV's the ones with the really large patios/balconies? I've seen pictures of them and as we really enjoy having coffee, drinks and even dinner in our spacious OKW balconies I think these would be fabulous!

Found the pic. I might never leave the villa with this balcony...........

A week here with my family and closest friends!

Yep, that's it! I love the idea of being on one of those "end caps" in the middle of a savanna! We are actually going to try to get one next year in December for our family trip. We'll book an OKW GV for the 4 of us at the 11 month mark, and then try to switch to AKV at 7 months. Even if I can only get it for a couple of days....

For years we stayed at the YC water view and here and there at the BWV, being able to request and get the Luna Park view. The trees were smaller back then. I know now that probably isn't a sure thing as DVC has grown. So we enjoy being at the Epcot Resort area so much we became DVC members at the BWV . I would say my favorite is still the BWV.

Hands down BLT. Glad it's our home resort. We love the convenience of walking to MK, the proximity of the quick service dining, and the kids love the arcade!

which WDW resort would you choose to stay at if you could stay anywhere and why?
I think it really depends on the trip, and what I was looking for for that particular stay. There is no one place I'd want to stay every single time.

I'd say BLT or even the Contemp (I own DVC but not at BLT)...just love the monorail resorts, dining and parks. We have been trying the different DVC resorts since buying in 2006, but BLT is not one that DH leans towards whenever we go to book a new trip. We stayed at the Contemp before (for a seminar that DH had to attend) and I LOVED it. DH likes the Epcot area resorts (BWV is his fave...but we are just about to do BCV for the 1st time) for walking to Epcot...I keep reminding him that we can monorail from BLT. Plus we spend most of our time at Epcot and MK and we always must eat at Ohana...BLT really is perfect for us...DH is dumb! I also like POLY (never stayed there but it's beautiful). So, if I won a free trip and could pick any resort on property it would be BLT, Contemp or POLY (if all 5 of us were going, I'd have to go with a villa at BLT. If just DH and I, I might select POLY).
DVC since 2006
Next trip(s): Nov 3-6 at VWL
Aug 8-14 at BWV and AKV

Well, It depends on circumstances...

Fall or Spring - VB
Doing the Parks - BWV
Early or late summer - HHI
Christmas - VWL

We prefer KV one because it is quiet. You have first bus stop on and off. Only one other stop. That is a huge thing for us.

Its not the best actual resort but the location and ease of life there makes it our top pick. I'm a MK girl and can never pass up the castle and fireworks. Plus we have 2 young girls so we have a stroller.

easy......after stays at almost all the mods, deluxes, and DVC resorts, we still pick the BWVs. there are lots of options if we feel like it (street performers, dining, surrey bikes, walk to 2 parks or minigolf, community hall, etc), as well as many quiet areas to just sit and people watch, read, think, etc. BWV/BWI has the best of all worlds!
in non-dvc resorts, our favorites have been the BWI, YC (much quieter than the BC), and the GF.fortunately, BWV still wins everyone in our family's vote over any other WDW resort -else we would be spending a lot more money (rather than points) for our vacations!
