If you pay for water view, you have no control whether the water will be the lake or your village’s quiet pool, as both are within the water view category and there is no way to guarantee one or the other.
In my opinion, water view is a waste of money at any of Disney’s Moderate resorts. Your window and door open onto an exterior corridor, where everyone walks to get from here to there. So if you leave your curtains wide open to enjoy the view, then everybody walking by has a great view of YOU. :eek:
