Which resort would you prefer? I am going in May with DH and 2 DS (age 5&8).
VWL with the age of your sons - the main park will be the MK.
BCV is great for Epcot and Studios -but the buses to the MK can be slow (my opinion) - we waited once 40 minutes - then it took 30 minutes to get there - very, very, slow bus driver - I don't think her went over 25 mph....
We own at both, and love both for different reasons!
WL/VWL is quiet, peaceful with a nice pool, BEAUTIFUL lobby and wonderful atmosphere. Its more 'remote' than BCV. But you can jump on a boat to get to the MK or the Contemporary for Monorail access which is very nice. We also enjoy the Electric Water Parade each night out on the lake. Great view from the Beach. Renting water mice boats here is fun with access to both Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon.
BC/BCV is a great resort RIGHT in the middle of the action. You are closer to Epcot than any other resort, and its about a five minute walk to the International Gateway entrance. Walking back to the room after Illuminations and NOT taking a bus/boat is a GREAT perk! We also enjoy the boat to MGM and usually take advantage of the walking path to skip the after Fantasmic transportation too. (about 20 minute walk). One of our FAVORITE features of BC/BCV is Stormalong Bay Pool complex. Its basically a mini waterpark, and great fun for kids. Our DD's LOVE it (6 and 8 years old) and have since they were 2 and 4! Its also great having a Character Breakfast at the resort (Cape May) and Beaches and Cream is the best little restaurant for a burger and some fantastic sundaes! Its also a nice walk around Crescent Lake to visit the YC (right next store), Swan/Dolphin and Boardwalk - so you have all their restaurants/stores to enjoy as well!
Its a tough choice, but win-win either way!
This Aug we're doing both
