Default which would you rather....

For a two night (Dec 19-21) stay with 4 adults, 4 college aged girls and maybe another college aged couple (but probably not). Whole group will be staying off site at Vistana the following week (for Xmas week). Which would you pick (and the bulk of points being used are CCV)?

A 3rd option would be to try for a 2BR and studio at RR to save points (but would need to use 140 at minimum as they are banked and borrowed and we won't be booking another trip before UY ends).

I vote for the CC cabins. Look so amazing! Just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom and a slew of great resort dining. They're on my bucket list!
Riviera just doesn't impress me at all. Dislike the location, boring tall hotel-like tower, lacking Disney atmosphere and theming.

Grand Villa. No way would I put that many in a cabin. If you are splitting the group, that's even worse IMO. One location is preferable.

Grand Villas are awesome and give you the flexibility to invite more guests. But you are at Vistana so you will have plenty of space there to accommodate.

OTOH, what a awesome time the Cabin would deliver! But you are limited to 8. But having a 24 hour hot tub with college age would be a lot of fun, especially in December when the pool hours are limited and they lock the pools now. You would also have plenty of young person help to stock the Cabin and since it is your home and you have points to use, I would go for it.

Dual sided fire display and screened in area gives a little more space to spread out for the group and I like how the cabins are an extension of the resort area and dock.

I actually have a 2BR, studio, studio reserved for those dates! (BRV) -

I would do a 2BR +studio - although since a short stay nice to splurge on GV (good bucket list item)

I voted for the GV due to the extra room, however, that fireplace and hot tub are enticing!

Only two bedrooms in the Copper Creek Cabins, not much privacy for that large group.

I would rather have a GV for the whole time with everyone staying at the same resort. Staying at different resorts can be a bit of a pain.
