Just got back a couple of days ago and we stayed at VWL. I think all the views are of the trees. We were in 3510 and could see the walkways to the villas and to the lodge and to the bus stop and the tops of trees. Loved the resort, very peaceful!

Nothing special about any of the views at VWL. If you were making a request I'd consider if I wanted to be near or away from the elevators.

I was on the first floor right near the door to the pool and had a patio of trees (room 1535). I don't think there is one room that has a better view than another because it's mostly woods.

We had a view of trees and into our corner neighbors room. My least favorite hotel we've stayed at, but only because we felt cramped and the theming is pretty much like the area where we live, so it didn't feel like as much of a vacation.

I agree with PPs, I don't think there's any good view because the entire place is surrounded by trees. I could be wrong though.
