As Deb says above, you really are not supposed to walk out through the shrubs outside your room and get to the pool that way, you are supposed to go out through the hallway door. However, I strongly recommend room 178, we stayed in it last year and it was great for a few reasons:

1) It was next to the parking lot, but that was never an issue (it was a plus b/c my FIL had a car and kept it parked literally 30 feet from our door).

2) There are three small sitting areas, but no shrubbery in front of the last two so you can walk right out onto the walking path and to your left would be the pool just about 30 paces away.

3) The bus stop is very close.

4) We actually felt like it was very private as opposed to the ground floor rooms that were viewable to the pool. We've seen some odd things in those rooms while swimming. Yes, there is some foot traffic going to and from the parking lot but most of it is during the day and it's nothing obtrusive.

I would highly recommend that room if you can put in such a request. We would love to stay in it again. The fact that it's the last room on the first floor was not an issue b/c the buildings not that big and it's easy to cut across the pool area to get to.

As for snakes, if you want to see a few just walk across the lake to the Boardwalk DVC Sales Office!

To me, that's a very good reason to never get a first floor studio. I was on the fifth floor once, saw a small snake thru my binoculars and that totally freaked me out.

We saw a little one over too. Snakes are the reason why we have not stayed ground level before. I am trying to overcome this "irrational" fear as DH says.

I am going to check out 178 on the parkinfo2go site.

We love room 178 for all of the reasons listed.

re: snakes
We've had more trouble with critters getting into the room at OKW than BCV. I think it's a problem at any WDW resort with first floor rooms.

Mostly those little lizards, but ants and love bugs too. (especially when my kids were little and didn't shut the door all the way) We've never had a snake in our room, but I've seen some decent-sized ones on the hidden path from BCV to Epcot. We only take that path during the daytime, and go through the lobby at night
