If you're concerned about long hallways just request "near elevators". That tells the room assigner what is important to you and they can do their best to fulfill it within the constraints of the room category booked.

Then you should request a "Village Green" room. These are all studios and are close to the elevator, pool, lobby, etc. You will be overlooking the grassy area between the lobby and the lake. You will have a partial BW view.

The hallways never bothered us......that being said we did have a room next to the elevators during one of our stays. You could hear the elevators every morning going up and down. My family starts their days late, kids enjoy sleeping in a little even at Disney. We have yet to make any morning Magic Hours.

If studio request Village Green not just because it is close to elevators but it is one of the better pool/garden views and gives partial view of boardwalk. The elevators are near the lobby. The pool is also near that area. Even if you get the rooms farthest from the lobby, the longest walk from lobby to room is only about 125 yards and takes about 90 seconds causal adult pace.

FWIW, one can avoid the long hallways by taking the stairs located in various places including the far ends of those long hallways. We use the stairs on a regular basis when staying at BWV and specifically request locations at the far ends of the hallways as they allow super fast-getaway to the great outdoors.

Definitely request a Village Green view (and politely state that you are willing to wait for your room if you request can be filled). I had a fabulous VG top floor studio for my stay the last week of November. GREAT room. Good view. Looked refurbished, very quiet and just around the corner from the elevators. So easy to bop in and out of the room. The best was the view from my balcony

And to go one more-- we use the bus stop at the swan (or dolphin, i don't remember which it is) by walking across the bridge beyond jelly rolls when we get a room in that area.
