I agree with what one of the other posters said after me. Any of the resorts you go to are gonna have the Christmassy and Holiday feeling. They're all gonna have decorations and trees up and have music playing. However WL does has a more cozy and wintery feeling. I'd definitely prefer to stay there, but I don't know if the "taller than usual" Christmas tree in the lobby is worth almost $400 a night to do so, especially when you can stay at BC for nothing.

The hotels at Disney aren't really worth $350/night to begin with. I would go with free. BC location is also a plus.

I have a bit of dilemma and need some insight. I have booked WL from 12/1-12/6. My brother's wedding is coming up (Feb) and I am planning along with my parents to surprise him and pay for everything. My brother is a DVC member and because he's in school right now, he hasn't been able to go for almost 2 years and he offered me to use his DVC points at no cost to me. WL villas are booked and all that is available that I am interested in for DVC members is Beach Club. So in essence, should I just used my brother's DVC points and stay at BC for free or is the cost for WL worth it during the holidays? If it is worth the price, I have no problem staying but if its not worth roughly $350/night, I may consider taking up my brother's offer. Thanks in advance everyone.
I'm in the minority as I would go with the WL. The WL is amazing anytime of year, but especially so during the holidays. The lobby is gorgeous and has a cozy/homey feel with the huge fireplace surrounded by rocking chairs . We've stayed at the BC during December, but never in any of the BC villas, but I did have a chance to see a studio and it just didn't do anything for me. The BC is nice and the lobby is nicely decorated, but IMO, it doesn't compare to the WL. With that said, free is always nice, but it wouldn't be worth it to me if it meant me staying somewhere I wasn't thrilled about staying (but that's just me). Good luck.

IMO.....YES .
