This review is for two stays in November. We booked a one-bedroom for the Food & Wine Festival. Our friends booked a studio and after lots of phone calls, we were able to have them next door to us so we actually had the two bedrooms and our view was over the quiet pool. We enjoyed being able to walk to Epcot for the event. The room was comfortable for four adults. The living area is a little small. The room had two chairs on the breakfast bar and a separate table for two. I did not like that we could not all eat breakfast together. Room was clean and our bed was comfortable. The BWV looks like it does need some renovations. Doors were off the hinges and the décor looked warped. We did not use any of the resorts amenities this trip.
The second trip was a one-bedroom for Thanksgiving week. We had a standard view, which actually had a slight view of Epcot and from the bedroom a view of Hollywood Studios. Yes it was a far walk, but we actually enjoyed how quiet it was in our area. We loved this room! It was one-bedroom that was not part of the lock-off rooms, which meant the living area was huge. We had a table that seated four, plenty of room for our blow-up air mattress and still lots of room when we pulled out the bed. The kids loved the room. The balcony was huge and wrapped around the living room area. We had to call the front desk to ask them to bring up more pans to cook with. The room had laundry detergent, dish soap, plenty of toiletries and dishwasher soap. The only complaint we had on the room was the king bed was not comfortable. Did not get a good night sleep and it felt like it was the original bed when the resort was built. Room was clean and we never had maid service because we only stayed four nights. They did call about clean towels. We cooked most of our meals and found the kitchen at good standards.
The kids loved the boardwalk shows every night and being able to walk to Epcot and Hollywood studios. We also loved the main pool and the quiet pool. The kids loved the community hall. I think we needed one extra day to do everything that the kids wanted to do.
My biggest complaint about Disney is that they charge a 10 year old as an adult for food options at the restaurants, however to be left without a parent at the community hall they had to be 12. Hmmm. Also our 11 years old cannot eat as much as an adult and that kind of make me mad. We had breakfast at the Captain’s Grill and they asked our 11 year olds age and he said 11 and they told us that he had to order as an adult. I could not finish the adult size pancakes that he ordered. I do not understand how and why anyone under 15 is treated as an adult at Disney. I wish Disney would change this policy. If he wanted to order an adult entree and was able to eat it I would not mind paying adult prices, but he just does not want to eat adult entrees yet.
We love the BWV area and will be back. We are DVC members and our home resorts are OKW and the GFV. We are a crazy Disney family and go almost every other month (We live in Florida).
