My sister and I can handle my mom if she gets too bossy.
how are you planning on splitting up the beds with that group?

Bang for your buck the OKW GV wins hands down, that's why they are very hard to book if you don't own at OKW

Master Bedroom - my mom and me

Guest room - my sister and her two girls (sister in one bed and her two young daughters in the other)

Living room - my two kids (one on couch pullout and one on chair pullout)

All our kids are young, so it still works.

We also really enjoyed the one at Jambo. The grand villas there jut out over the savannah for a great surrounding view. Our kiddies loved sitting on the balcony and counting and identifying all the passing animals. The one-story layout made it impressively large and easy for granny to get around. Definitely a nice splurge to try out!

ETA: The only negative was the long walk to the lobby. Thank goodness that granny had a scooter!

We stayed in one with 10 of us and it was very spacious. We never felt cramped for room. You can see the floor plan/pictures online to get an idea. Of course Iíve never stayed in one at any of the other resorts so have nothing to compare it to.

I donít think you would be disappointed with OKW, itís very nice.

We stayed in one of the single-floor BWV GVs and we were blown away by the spaciousness and the views. My only complaint would be that none of the many balconies we had was sufficiently large enough to accommodate our entire party. However, the living room and dining room areas more than made up for it. They're hard to book if you don't own there because there are only 7 GVs there and two of them are two-story floor plans, which don't appear to be as impressive.

Next up: a week in a VGF GV. I hope it exceeds the one at BWV.

Thanks everyone for all the input. Iím trying to convince my DH to splurge on our big family trip in a few years and get a 3-bedroom, but he isnít interested. Iíve got a couple of years to work on him...
