We did a BWV/AKV split last summer and it was a perfect trip! We spend the first 3 nights at BWV in 3 rooms (we tried for the GV but they were all booked), and the last 4 nights in a GV at AKV Jambo House. We did Epcot/HS during the first half when it was within walking distance, and the rest once we arrived at AKV. Our split day was a piece of cake. We checked out around 11:00 and headed to the quiet pool at BWV. We swam, played ping pong, etc. for a few hours, then had lunch on teh Boardwalk. Finally, we headed over to AKV and our room was ready (it was right around 4:00 by then). If you can get the Jambo GV, you will see that the split would be well worth it. That room is to die for! Happy planning!

I would rather stay at Boardwalk but the others prefer the villa at AK with the pool table and the views of the savannah. I'm just concerned that it's the farthest away from everything, while Boardwalk is near the center.

Is it really that big of a deal and does it take too long to go to the other parks? AK is probably our least favorite and we spend the least amount of time there, so it's not super convenient to stay there. We usually hit the roller coaster a few times, the safari and pretty much leave after that.

Am I too concerned that it's far away from everything else?
There are 22 GVs at Jambo House (6) and Kidani Village (16). BWV only has 7 GVs. They all go quickly at eleven months out. The JH GV is the only one with the pool table (so that means six of them).

If you don't own at both of these, you'll need a member who does own there booking them at exactly 11 months out.
