Keep in mind that the hotel (Wyndham Grand Bonnet Creek) and resort (Club Wyndham Bonnet Creek) are two distinctly separate experiences. One is a hotel and one is a timeshare resort (with full kitchen, laundry), but they do share facilities.
We stayed at CWBC in 2020, but due to changes Wyndham made, it was much harder to rent during peak dates in 2021. The other favorites we’ve heard Disney folks mention are the Sheraton Vistana Resort (across I-4, opposite Disney Springs) and another smaller resort, the Sheraton Vistana Villages Resort on I-Drive. We stayed at the Vistana Villages in 2021.
Location-wise, definitely hard to beat CWBC for a Disney-focused trip.
In 2020, I booked CWBC directly from an owner I found on TugBBS (no intermediary, so could be cheaper, but potentially riskier).
In 2021, I booked SVV from Koala, a broker type site: https://www.go-koala.com
Yes, this is an important distinction. CWBC are basically apartments. I believe WGBC is traditional hotel rooms.
We stayed at CWBC in June 2021. We loved the property and the kids had a great time exploring all the different pools.
The location relative to the parks and Disney Springs is excellent, and it was great having kitchen/laundry. We had 7 people in a 2 bedroom/2 bath.
We would absolutely stay there again if staying offsite.
I believe the website posted above is the “official” one where excess timeshare inventory is rented out.
We originally booked through Airbnb from a timeshare owner, but a couple days later, Wyndham unexpectedly put new blackout days on their “guest” timeshares (days when people can checkin without the timeshare owner accompanying them). The owner we were booking through hadn’t booked us yet and had to refund us. So if booking from a timeshare owner, make sure they get it booked in your name ASAP.
Luckily, our dates mostly overlapped with @sliddlenc_686656 and she was able to buy extra points and hook us up. Definitely our fairy godmother that trip!
She’s stayed there multiple times so is a good one to ask questions.
