In the context of this article, a villa is not a luxurious country residence high on a hill somewhere; it’s a term that timeshare developers use because it sounds better than small apartment.

    My favorite views from any DVC resort are definitely at Disney’s Grand Californian. We had a fantastic view of Paradise Pier on our last trip. Elevation is everything, though; a south-facing ground-floor room there will have a lovely view of a fence.

    From most of the other resorts, the view is far less important to us. We like the lake view from the Bay Lake Tower (far fewer points); if we want to view the Magic Kingdom, we just go to the Top of the World lounge. Savannah views at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge are nice, but we’ve enjoyed “standard” view rooms, too. At pretty much any other resort, though, we find that we spend almost no time looking at the view, whether at Old Key West, Saratoga Springs or the Boardwalk.

    We haven’t made it to Hawaii yet…

    I would have to say my favorite views are the ones from Old Key West. I don’t know why but they just seem so relaxing and like I’m not even at WDW. It really seems like an escape and doesn’t contradict the theme of the hotel.

    But who could beat the Animal Kingdom Lodge view. Where else can you see a giraffe? I also like the ground floor Bay Lake Tower view. I guess I like being close to nature. The Aulani view though it gorgeous.

    I’ve had a chance to take a tour of most of the DVC properties because of my job in the travel industry, and hands down a savannah view room at the Kidani Villas is the coolest, most awesome view of pretty much any hotel, resort, or timeshare on the planet. I’ll take that over the best super premium deluxe oceanfront room any day. Even in Africa I don’t think you would see as many animals from your room as you do here. I do love the view from Wilderness Lodge as well and I just might have to stay there on my next trip, even though I usually don’t go to MK that much. Also, one of these days I’m going to have to get a theme park view room at Grand Californian just so I can watch the World of Color show from my balcony. Maybe that can be a Valentine’s Day thing or something.
