Just giving my comparisons of the two resorts as the DVC members who helped me with this trip requested my feed back. My DW and I stayed March 1st @ SSR studio and then spent March 2nd @ BWV studio. Both, by the way, were booked through DVC members from this forum and everything went perfectly! Disclaimer: I have stayed @ the Boardwalk for years and have very fond memories so I am a little bias. Also, my DW's favorite park is Epcot and mine is the Studio's, so the simple fact that we can walk to both makes it even more of an unfair comparison. SSR is an outstanding resort. We faced the "tent" of Cirque du Soleil on P.I. so we had a great view and a short walk to DD. Also, my wife used the "spa" services and again it was only a short walk back to the room. (Dennis was her masseuse and was great and DW said the spa was wonderful. Through experience we have found that finding a quite massage area is getting more difficult as usually they are right next to the gym were the spinning and aerobic classes are with the loud music.) SSR Spa is very, very quite and relaxing. The room was very nice. My only complaint was that the tub shower area is definitely showing its age. Love the tile but it needs to be deep cleaned or even redone. BWV IS the resort for me! What can I say. It's the boardwalk! I could stay here for a month! The room we stayed in faced the main pool area and water slide. They must have just finished updating this room right before we checked in because it was perfect. My only complaint about the stay is that its time to replace the carpet in the main hallways. We got a chance to visit friends @ BLT that were in a one bedroom and I have to be honest, even though it was spectacular, when we go back in May, I think we will try to stay at BWV, again. I know most of you will not agree but with me its all about location and since our youngest is now 14 the MK resorts are just not as attractive to me now. Maybe that will change when the grand kids get older. So that's my honest and slightly disturbed comparison on the studio's. Thanks again to all that helped out on the ressie's and answered the many questions for this trip.
