[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;941919]The DVC part of the BWV is prominant, and what really makes up the resort. The VWL seem like second-thought and are kind of secluded from the main resort.[/QUOTE]
VWL is our home resort, and I completely agree with this.
The VWL pool is very small; they call it “the Quiet Pool.” It has a hot tub and a small boring pool (although there are underwater vertical jets). Our kids always want to go to the resort pool, but they are happy with the quiet pool if the resort pool is crowded.
The game room is shared with the resort; I’ve never been in it. It looks pretty small to me.
Access to the bus stop is as good or better than the resort; access to the boat dock is farther away. The quick service place is a hike from the VWL; I really wish they would put a beverage station.
For my family, though, the resort theming at VWL is the reason to stay there. Definitely a personal choice thing.
Never been to BWV.
