BRV...I like top floor. They are quiet and have vaulted ceilings making it feel roomier....at least the 1BR do, not sure about studios.

I mis-spoke. Should have said the infamous garbage dumpster. Pick up is usually early morning, plus nasty view. Do not know where exactly. Thanks to MO I asked not to be near it.

We were recently at SSR and nervous before getting there since we had only every stayed in the Congress Park section, but didn't have a "preferred" room booked. I requested the Grandstand and close to the Carriage House. We weren't in the closest building, but we really liked the location! We had a one bedroom overlooking the pool. It's further to the walking pathway to Disney Springs, but it is close to the boat transportation and the Carriage House. We would totally request this again!

I think the dumpster view at BRV is at the far end of the hall away from the entrance and elevators. You can satellite google map the resort and see the service road & parking area.

Yes it is! I was fortunate to get it for my only stay (so far) at BRV. And the truck did seem to be a permanent fixture.

When are you "going home?" I might not want to share my room choice in case our visits overlap...

I've had the dumpster view a couple of times, but I've never actually seen a truck. But then, I don't spend much time in the room. Guess I got lucky.

Had the infamous "dumpster" view one trip. The view itself is fine if you are on one of the top floors, woods view towards the lake and we saw deer at the edge of the woods which was nice. The thing I minded the most was those rooms are at the very end of the long hallway. Furthest from everything and a long walk at the end of the day.

Touring Plans has a nice room info feature, complete with views (if others submitted photos).
