Best Floor to stay in Boardwalk

We are DVC members that are staying at the boardwalk standard view room in a couple of weeks. I am checking in, and I am not sure which floor to request. We are driving, and I have a few dinner reservations at Epcot. Here are my options

pick first request
ground floor, near lobby, near elevator

pick second request
upper floor, lower floor or pool view

Any suggestions?

Ground floor if you have kids. That's where we stayed when traveling with 4 kids 3 and under. Much more convenient. If you don't mind a little more noisy, then a pool view. We didn't want that and got a nice view of the waterway to Hollywood studios. There was even a little grassy area with benches right off the patio of our room. Have fun... the Boardwalk is great!

DVC standard view won't be pool view.

I was wondering why they would give an option by the pool since we got the standard room. Is there a difference between ground floor and lower floor? We have a DD that is 11. Not to young.

For standard view, I always request top floor, across from the bus stop. That gets you away from the entrance where the valet cars are parked and the luggage area. Also has a good fireworks view (if there's not a tree in the way). You would have to either call or e-mail member services with this request rather than using online check-in.

Standard view for cash villas through Disney Reservation Center is the same as preferred for DVC points. The standard villas for DVC points are about 20 of the resort and are along the front drive and parking lot view.

Great to hear! We are thinking we want the ground floor for our next trip with two young kids. What type of room/view (standard/preferred) did you have? Looking to put in my request soon. Thanks!
