Also, we booked a standard view 1 BR on our points and I requested "high floor, across from bus stop" and that's exactly what we got. Room 4117 looks right out on the bridge and stream leading into the resort and we have an unobstructed view of Illuminations every night.

I did post that, but it's always great to have closures/rehabs repeated - thanks.

Glad you got just the location you asked for. Hope you're having a wonderful vacation with low crowds and great weather!

Question Room Requests

Help me please...I just found out that I am going to BWV in October! YEAH! I am staying on points...what I am dreaming of is a view of Spaceship Earth with possibly some fireworks I know, but as long as I am dreaming! I am staying in a preferred view studio...does anyone have some room number suggestions I can request...and can I call and put in my requests? Or does the DVC member need to do that. I have only stayed one other time, in March 2011 - I turned *gulp* 40 in Disney and I stayed at OKW on points. I called the resort and requested which buildings I preferred then. I wasn't sure of anything had changed or if BWV was different...let the dreaming and planning begin!!

You can't make any requests until you possibly do online check in. Then you can check the boxes, but not make general requests. The member will need to add those to your reservation, you can't call to add those.

Since you are pool/garden preferred, more than likely you will have a view of one of the pools and that won't give you Spaceship Earth. You might see some fireworks/lasers from DHS, though.

How comfortable are the daybeds?

We may stay BWI standard room, are a family of 5, so one of the kiddos will definitely be sleeping in the daybed each night.

How comfortable are they? How do they fold out? Are there videos or pictures out there somewhere showing it?

Thanks

No one in our party has every slept on it, but they're about the size of a loveseat:

Sure will. I'll try posting on the main resort page to see if I get a response.

The photo I posted above is the daybed. Here is a larger photo of the daybed:



Here's a link to a BWI STD Room video tour (I couldn't find any with the daybed actually being used by someone):

Ha... I was about to post the SAME picture.....either we ended up with the same room or the rooms are identical down to the pictures

The daybed as a couch / loveseat was pretty comfortable, but we also had no use for it as a bed.

We were there earlier in the month and my DD18 slept on the day bed with no problem. It was bigger then I expected.

That photo I quickly extracted from Pinterest LOL. Thanks for posting about your daybed experience

Thanks, MUFFYCAT for letting us know that your DD18 slept on it just fine

One time we were the very last room at club level. You had to stop and get something to eat and drink at the lounge to make it.

We've also been the farthest room at Kidani Village. At least you don't have a lot of traffic past your room at 1:00am

I love how your room glass is half full: no noise at Kidani, snacks on the way back to your room at YC... Next you'll tell us there wasn't housekeeping to bother you since you were too far out

You're welcome. I know it's frustrating when you can't picture something about your upcoming trip, but I couldn't find an 'in-use' BWI daybed photo - would Poly work? JK
