No View Categories @ BCV?

Can someone please explain to me why there are no view categories at the BCV? I'm confused!

I stayed there last year, and if I can remember correctly, we did not have the option to choose the view from our one bedroom. I believe I read that there are not any good views. However, we ended up with a view of a Epcot (and a ditch).

they do allow views before Soarin' now they don't

bcv does not have the great views of BC or YC - it was an after thought - you are looking at the back side of Epcot (if you get one)

or swimming pool or parking lot or street. some people have say to close the street - since this is the street going into BC - that is not a good idea (my opinion)

We requested a view of the villas pool and it was granted. We had a lovely view of the pool from the top floor of BCV.

the woods view - if you are luck you get a back view of Epcot and can see the fireworks - up high.

We never request a view at BCV or VWL. Not much of a view at either resort. And both are rather small resorts.

BCV is my home resort and I also never request a view as I've never (in 15 years) had a great one. I do request an higher floor because I prefer a balcony over a patio.
