    Thx Bernie! Didn't think so either! BC last yr, think WLV, BCV, or BLT this time. We loved the BC, the pool, walk to Epcot. What do you think about these villas compared to the parent resorts? Time to walk to pools, to bus/boat/monorail, restaurants

    HI Jennifer!

    My personal favorite is the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge.  However, that's really because I just love the theming of the Wilderness Lodge resort in general.  I also love taking the boat to and from the Magic Kingdom.  However, to get to anywhere else you have to take a bus.

    I also love the Beach Club Villas and it is my second favorite resort.  If I'm going in the hot summer then I definitely try to stay there because of Stormalong Bay.  As you know, it is amazing.  My children can easily spend a half day there swimming while I relax on the side!  I also like all of the dining options available at the Beach Club, given that you are so close to Epcot's World Showcase.  When you add in all of the restaurants in the Boardwalk area and in the neighboring hotels, it is hard to beat the Beach Club Villas.

    Bay Lake Tower is a wonderful place to stay, especially if you think you will be spending a lot of time in the Magic Kingdom.  It is only about a 10 minute walk from Bay Lake Tower to the Magic Kingdom.  You also have easy access to Epcot via the monorail and a transfer at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    It is not an easy choice.  They are all great.  Honestly, I usually chose the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge because it is slightly less expensive than the others unless I'm going in the summer when I absolutely try and stay at the Beach Club.  Good luck with your decision, and write back if you have any more questions!
