    When we do or resort tour next month, is it worth is go to the DVC "side" of the resorts for decorations? (BLT, WLV, AKLV). Or is the big stuff only in the main lobbies?

    Also, we plan on visiting AKL, WL, 5 Epcots, and 3 monorails. (We are staying 3 nights at Coronado and 4 at BC). Are any of the others worth traveling to for their decorations?

    It is mainly the lobby areas. There will be some decorations in the DVC public areas, the Beach Club Villas were the nicest in my opinion but nothing I would make a trip to see.

    The DVC side of resorts use the main resorts lobby, restaurants, etc. so I don't think there is much of anything to see. We stayed at BCV one year and they had a tree in the atrium area but it was not really anything special.

    While each resort has there own unique theming, (Trees, Garland, Etc.) you will get an idea of what the moderates are like at Coranado when you are there.

    SSR and OKW are nice but I wouldn't go out of the way to visit them.

    I would definitely do the Boardwalk Inns/Villas...the lobby is beautiful and there is also a tree outside in the courtyard by the boardwalk.

    Check out the lobby at VWL as well as the main WL lobby. While the VWL lobby doesn't compare in size, its well decorated.

    The VWL were very nice and IMO worth visiting.
