WLV or Bonnett Creek help!

So I am a Disney spoiled girl I grew up going every year thanks to my parents n then later my husband, I have never stayed off property or even in a non disney hotel. I saw a great deal to stay at Bonnett creek n was wondering if I should try it. I have asked about bonnet in earlier posts n got very good feedback from all, thank u so much. But I have never tried WLV .... What do u think guys, where would u pick?

Given that choice, VWL would definitely be our choice, but we haven't stayed off site either. We just enjoy the Disney immersion so much, and WL's location on Bay Lake is just perfect for us. For us it comes down to knowing that staying onsite will be Disney perfect, especially at our favorite resort.

Good luck with your choice, I'm sure it will be a great trip either way.

We've stayed at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek twice and loved it. Two-bedroom condo for much less than you would spend staying in a Disney villa.

The resorts at Bonnet Creek are located just as close to all the Disney parks as the Disney resorts.

You don't get the Disney transportation, but the Wyndham does have their own bus transportation back and forth to the parks.

Personally I would choose VWL, hands-down. It just comes down to how much you want to be immersed in Disney, and of course, the cost difference.

I've heard great things about Bonnett Creek, but if you are accustomed to "all things Disney" having always stayed on-site, it would be a very different experience for you. As long as you go in with the right attitude though, I'm sure you'll have a blast.
Disney resorts: Animal Kingdom, Grand Floridian, All-Star Music, All-Star Sports, Port Orleans French Quarter (twice), Pop Century, Coronado Springs, Villas @ Wilderness Lodge, and a few off-site hotels too.
