2 Bdrm Value at AKV

Just wondering the bed arrangement in the 2nd bedroom of the value view? I know one of the bedrooms will have a king, but does the 2nd bdrm have 1 queen and a sofabed or 2 queens? I am hoping only one queen as we will be travelling with family and if there are 2 queens, I just know we are going to end up in the 2nd bdrm. I know this sounds VERY selfish, but we are new owners and I want the master suite, and we will be footing all the points for the vacation.
Also, what are my chances of getting this villa at 7 months out?

I'm not certain since I've never stayed in a 2 BR Value but I will this October. I'm pretty sure the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a full-sized pullout couch. IMO, if you are using your points, you should get the master, no question. But I think it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get a value room at 7 months out. They usually are gone at 11 months out. I felt VERY lucky to have gotten my 2 BR Value for this fall at 10 months out. It doesn't hurt to try, but make sure you have a back-up plan.

All the value villas are in Jambo House and all the two bedroom villas in Jambo House are lockoffs. So the second bedroom will always have a queen bed and double sleeper sofa. It is going to be difficult to get at 7 months out.

The value two bedroom villa will not have the sleeper chair in the living room. And they only sleep eight.

That is good to hear about the 2nd bdrm but not so good to hear about the availability.
I am hoping since our availability is super open that we have a better chance. We are looking to go anywhere from Sept 1, 2012 to jan 31, 2013. Very open!
Wish me luck!

September may be easier than any of your other months.

I am staying in a 2BR value in February for the princess half marathon. I called at 7 months and had no problem. Good luck!
