a lockoff studio has a door to a 1BR that can be opened so that disney can book the room as a 2BR villa or "locked-off" so that the 1BR and studio can be booked separately.

a dedicated studio is just that. it's a studio with no door to a 1BR.

no other difference. i think dedicated studios are either pool view or savanna view but views cannot be requested with value villas. i've stayed in value studios twice - i got a savanna view one time and a parking lot view the other time. somebody has to get the parking lot views...it probably won't be you, but if you've got to have a good view, book one of the larger studios with a specified view. otherwise, enjoy the savings and watch the animals from any of several public viewing areas...

If you don't get an answer here, I would ask the very knowledgable and helpful folks over at the AKL/AKV official thread.

No request are allowed when booking the value rooms, you just get what you get.

The extra bedroom in the dedicated 2 bdrm has two queen beds vs the one in the lockoff has one bed and a pull-out sofa.
