They weren't talking loud, but the doors seem paper thin at all Disney Deluxe Resorts. I am a super light sleeper, and once woken can't go back to sleep. Anyway, that is the ONLY reason this wasn't the most perfect room. We had a full balcony and even a wet bar in the bedroom area of the room. It was nice to have a sink to rinse out our cups, get water for the coffeemaker etc that wasn't in the bathroom area. I will post other pics of this same room later.
Wow! That seems like our dream room! Do you remember the room #?

Thanks.
I suppose it really depends, and we have only had water view rooms from the BC, so maybe we are biased. I feel like it is so relaxing and nice to look out over the lagoon, watch all the people going to and from Epcot and the Boardwalk and to see the lights at night. We spent a lot of time in the room on our first trip because of the heat (late May visit), so it was really nice to have the lagoon views. If we hadn't, I think we might have felt claustrophobic. That being said, I've read that the "woods" views facing Epcot are quiet and relaxing, and walking along those walkways, it is quite peaceful on that side of the resort. Another thing we've noticed is that garden view rooms at the BC seem to have a high likelihood of being upgraded to a water view, so you could keep the GV reservation and take your chances, hoping for a free upgrade.

I know you will have a wonderful trip no matter which view you have!

I'm so sorry-we don't remember which room number and didn't take a picture of the door! I have heard there aren't very many rooms with king beds and full balconies, so if you make those requests, you might get this room just based on default.

We are staying at the YC in August. We have a water view room (I know that can mean a craned neck view of a pool) any suggestions for what I should request for room location? Near the pool, near the dock? We will be traveling with our 11 yo twins. Thanks

Water view doesn't mean pool view. You could be ve3ry far from the pool but still see the lake

Depends what you want. You can definitely get a pool view - even the quiet pool is considered a water view. Personally, I would rather request a lagoon view than the loudness of Stormalong bay and the long walk of the quiet pool (not that a lagoon view won't have a long walk also, but it is a better trade off to me). So I would likely request lagoon view, near dock.
