    One the Resort Comparisons - DVCinfo.com page, I have added a comparison of recreational amenities across DVC resorts.

    Let me know if I've misrepresented the recreational amenities at your home resort.

    I'm fairly certain that the arcade at Grand Californian has been converted to the new gym location, and there is no longer an arcade at that resort. I'm unaware of a playground there, but they do offer outdoor movies.

    Aulani isn't my home resort, but we've been there twice so far.

    There's a walkway that goes along the beach between the different hotels in the area. Many use it as a jogging path, though I'm not sure that it's an official one.

    Aulani has a playground within the Auntie's Beach House compound. It's open to the public during open house hours - in the morning before Auntie's Beach House officially opens.

    Outdoor movies are offered on selected nights.

    This is a great list. :tu:

    Would it be worth adding availability of sit-down and quick service dining?

    That would be a good idea. Just like the number of pools, you could do the number of quick service and number of table service. I'm not sure how you would handle BWV though, just everything on the boardwalk?

    Maybe could add on the resort comparison page a similar chart showing room amenities such as sleeper chair, flip down TV bed, extra bathroom, two real beds in studio, elevator in building...etc.

    Those are all good ideas. I'll get to that later this week.

    Any idea what the second sports court is (not the basketball court) at BRV/CCV? Looks like it might be a shuffleboard court:

    Nevermind, just saw #26 is the Barbeque Pavilion :embarrased3:

    Is the new "Reunion Station (Child Activities)" at BRV/CCV a Community Hall?

    I like the chart showing all the resorts' amenities. It was a lot of hard work putting it together!

    The following comment is posted with 90% tongue in cheek:

    Should the "Beach" amenity be broken down into two categories?

    "Beach that gives direct access to water sports such as paddle boarding, surfing, floating, swimming, etc"

    and

    "Sandy area next to water that guests should not enter"

    It just seems a little unfair that Aulani and Vero Beach get the same green check as BCV and BLT when it comes to the "Beach" category.

    :yeahthat:

    I had the same thought - OKW and BCV just have a sand beach next to a pool; VGF and BLT have a sand beach next to a lagoon (which you can't swim in); Aulani, VB, and HHI have actual beaches next to an ocean :tu:.

    I guess there is a need to differentiate the resorts with a real beach from the pretend beaches at Walt Disney World.

    You could do beaches with sharks vs. beaches with gators!

    It's possible that I'm mistaken, but I believe the child care option at VGC (Pinocchio's Workshop) is now closed indefinitely.

    I was wondering the same thing, if it is a Community Hall...
