    I'm trying to decide between bwv studio or bonnet creek 1 bedroom for april 14-20th (6 nights). Bwv is 291/night + tax. Bonnet Creek is $85.50 a night no tax.

    Been to bonnet the past 3 years, would like to try something new but I'm not sure if it is worth all that money.

    That's alot of cash no doubt. Have you checked Ebay? You might also check here on the board on the DVC forum where you can buy points from folks who can't use them. You'll save alot of money and help out someone who needs to unload some points.

    Unfortunately every dvc resort is booked up except SSR and OKW and I like the boardwalk way more than those resorts!

    What about BW inn. I think that might be a tiny bit cheaper(not much though). For me, $300 a night to stay in the EPCOT resort area is reasonable.

    I would never pay nearly $300 per night to stay in a DVC studio. One bedroom yes, studio no.

    If you like the Boardwalk, consider a room on the Boardwalk Inn side. Much nicer, more deluxe appointments, better beds, etc.

    The Villa is cheaper than the standard Boardwalk inn room because there is no rate increase for weekends. We would certainly use the microwave, fridge, and sink in the villa- are those are the inn as well? With tax it's more like $320 for boardwalk per night. Unfortunately there's no really a cheaper option, even renting points is expensive (when they are available)

    The Inn would have a small fridge but no microwave, toaster or separate sink. Bedding is also different, the villa studio has a queen bed and a double sleeper sofa, where the Inn would have 2 queens and some have a daybed also.
