BWV Pool/Garden view

I am going down in June. This is my first time staying at BWV. I will be staying in a studio. I have pool/garden view. Is there any room I should request or should I just let the chips fall where they may?

I know AKV has long hallways. Wondering if BWV is the same. When you check in online is there choices you are given and if so, what should I choose?

The villas do have long hallways. There is only one bank of elevators located near the one end of Luna Park. So there is along walk to the furthest villa from both ways from the elevator. You could request close to the elevator.

We don't usually make room requests.

If you want a more quiet room, ask to be near the quiet pool. If you want a sideways view of the boardwalk you can ask for village green.

This screenshot of a satellite map of BWV shows where the elevators are located (red oval). The Village Green area is located just above the elevator area facing the yard area where you walk out to Boardwalk from the resort.



We had a Village Green studio but it was located closer to the main building than the boardwalk. It was just pass the stairs and the elevator lobby. Here's the photos of our view for studio BWV 3063.

Looking to the right.



Have a great time!

We've requested "quiet pool" twice and gotten it both times. It's a really relaxing area. There is a sidewalk that runs from that end of the building directly across the street to the bus stop (see bottom of picture posted by pp above). The quiet pool area is also close to the walkway to DHS.

People are always talking about distance to the elevator at BWV. I'm at BLT now and just got back from Epcot. I was thinking the distance from the monorail to my room on the north side has to be about as long as walking to the farthest room at BWV.

I prefer the main pool view upper floors. I enjoy sitting on the balcony watching the pool area come alive in the morning. While there is some noise during the day, the night is usually fairly quiet. I beleive if you select the hall facing the clown it has morning Sun. It is a good walk to the elevator which doesn't bother me, which also means you dont have many people walking by your room late form EMH's. If you are looking for quiet definitely suggest quiet pool.

As far as requests defintely call to add request for specifics.
