That was my thought exactly. It actually made me a bit angry. We own at BCV, and I feel like it devalues our ownership a bit. I know that's a personal opinion. But we do use the tubs on occasion, and I find the bubbly tub relaxing.

Disney is so darn inconsistent in their decisions.

We do occasionally use the tub and find it relaxing. We do NOT find the outdoor hot tubs relaxing with children being allowed in and the temperature not what a hot tub was meant for.

Are you sure you want to enter the sweepstakes? The fine print says the 5 day stay has a FMV of almost $9000. You will be paying income taxes on that!!!

Even in the 25% bracket, that's $1700. Put that towards a reservation and save the other $7300.

PS: I thought the webcast was well done. Made me want to buy more points. Talking myself out of it as we speak.

I've seen the model and the tubs in the 1 and 2BR's are the Air bubbler kind like they have at VGF. They are not jetted like all the other villas up until VGF. But yes, they are something vs BCV's soaker.

What's with giving away a 1BR stay and not a cabin stay?!??

DVD cheaped out on their sweepstakes.

I didn't realize the video was going to be so long. Don't get me wrong, it just made me leave late since I wanted to make sure I entered. The cabins are amazing and once again, DVC will have no problem filling those things.
