1 bedroom or 2 bedroom

Hello all. I have a question on your thoughts.

We are planning on going to WDW in October with my in laws. There will be 4 adults and 1 child (8 years old). I am wondering if a 1 bedroom will be large enough or should we get a 2 bedroom?

Unless you get a 2 BR, one couple will have to sleep on a pullout. Technically you're OK with a 1 BR but BLT and AKV will work best if you go that route. I'd do a 2 BR.

I would definately recommend a 2BR. That way, you have plenty of room in case someone needs some "space".

For us, the big plus to the 2 bedroom is the additional bathroom. If you have a 2 bedroom at BLT or AKV, you'll have 3 bathrooms. At the other resorts, you'll have 2 bathrooms. That extra bathroom really helps when everyone is trying to get ready in the morning! I also don't love sleeping on pull out sofas, so if you go the 1 bedroom route, make sure 2 adults are okay not having a "real" bed.

Our first trip as DVC members, we took my husband's parents with us. We are a family of three and our son was about five at the time. We booked an OKW two bedroom villa and it worked out very nicely. They were able to have the second bedroom to themselves and we had the master. Our son slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room or in the king sized bed with one of us (the other slept on the sleeper sofa).

After the fact I thought I should have booked a two bedroom lockoff so the inlaws could have the second bedroom, plus the kitchenette to themselves if they wanted it that way.

Just AKV Kidani has the 3 bathrooms.

Jambo only has lock offs (adjoining studio and 1br) with a wacky non-master bathroom in the 1BR.

unless all of you currently live together, and only one couple has a door on their bedroom, and/or you are staying for one night....get the 2-bdrm.
all will be more likely to still love (and like) one another after the vacation

Or two studios. But there is no guarantee they will be near each other

I'll be the sole voice of dissent, and say that if you get along well with your in-laws, a one bedroom could be large enough and save you quite a bit of points. I'd go for BLT or AKV-K for the second bathroom, but if they're okay with sleeping on the pull-out, which is very comfy, then the 1 bedrooms are over 900 square feet, which is about 3x as large as a regular hotel room.

If you did book two sets of accommodation would they not guarantee they were next to each other (or as close as the layout would allow)
