My favorite view is the OKW golf course view from Bldg 16.

Of your choices:

AKV–Savanna-meh. Wasn't impressed when we tried this one.

BLT-Theme Park -Voted for this one. Totally surprised how much time we spent on the balcony enjoying this view. Yes, as Sal said, it is a parking lot view-however we really enjoyed watching all of the activity going on at all of the resorts and on Seven Seas Lagoon. The monorails making their rounds, the boats ferrying guests back and forth, the attractions in the MK going, even the buses and cars driving around. That said, I'm not that enamoured of watching the fireworks from the balcony (or TOTWL for that matter) because of the perspective being lost due to the differing launch locations.

BLT-Lake-lovely, and relaxing

BWV-Boardwalk-too noisy, not my cup of tea

BWV-Pool/Garden-okay, but BWV overall is not one of my fav's

PVB-Lake-very nice, but is really depends on the floor you get

VGF-Lake-haven't tried this view yet. The one time we stayed we had a monorail view-which was fun, but not what I would call a great view.

Personally, while it is not a designated "view" category room, my absolute favorite is an upper floor lake side view at VWL.

Thanks for sharing some of the views that I didn't list (or know about), I almost put in an "Other" poll option!

First pick would be SSR view of Disney Springs. Second on my list is OKW canal view.

My favorite view is the one I just got a week ago at "non-view" BCV. It wasn't in the poll so I couldn't vote.

It sounds totally dumb but it was a TREE. A big bushy beautiful tree that blocked everything. Because life has been so stressful this past year and the trip to Disney was to clear my head and my DD's head, (she had a studio 2 doors down with basically the same type of view), it was calm, peaceful and serene. I kept the drapes totally open so when I walked into the room, I just said "ahhh". When I sat out on the balcony, my shoulders felt lighter. .

I've had wonderful views at BLT, BWV , Poly & Kidani but this was the view I needed at this time and loved.

AKV Savanna view hands down! Love watching the giraffes and other animals on almost every trip we take.

We love:

BWV boardwalk view
BLT lake view
AKV savanna view
SSR DS view

We are boycotting any positive vote for PVB until they change the mattresses

I voted for BLT theme park view. Like cali09 said I love watching the boats, the monorail & all the goings on. The castle was awesome on our last trip when they were testing the Christmas lights early in the morning. Iím not looking down into the parking lot (unless Iím starting the car so itís cooler before we get in). For my family there is something awesome about watching the smoke from the train before you can see it coming through the trees and hear the whistle.
