It will have a bed & a pullout couch - which I wouldn't recommend for 4 people BUT your little ones are really little so they could easily share the sofa bed. Or even sleep on the couch together as is, one at each end. Wait if they're both under 3 you might need the pack-n-play. That will take up a lot of room by the sofa, bu do-able if you don't mind manuevering around it to get to the balcony. I always stress about where the kids will sleep (they're 15 & 12 & won't share a bed) & one usually ends up sleeping on the floor anyway!

Good luck whatever you decide & have fun!
Sadly neither if ours will fit in a pack n play. Our DD is about a month shy of 3 years when we go and has slept in a twin bed since she was a year and a half. Our DS will just be a little over a year and he refuses to sleep on anything but a bed, no playpen, no crib, a regular bed! It is very frustrating with both of me being so picky about sleeping arrangements.

I don't *think* laundry will be a problem but with 2 this little you just never know . I do like the idea if a large fridge though. I am planning on bringing drinks and snacks for the kids since DD is the pickiest eater EVER. We just want something relaxing for us and space for everyone to sleep comfortably. I am loving the Florida resident discounts right now and that is the only reason I am even considering a deluxe. I figured all we would be able to afford would be a value.

Any news on the Bakery, is it going to have a seated area?
It' 5:00 somewhere and when you're on vacation, it's always 5:00.

I love all those great firsts. What kind of 'adult' things are you going to do? Sleep-in and do everything or nothing?

Hi!!

Well we were going to do a tour but with only 5 days/4 nights not sure I want to take 5 hours out of MK day.

I know DH will want to sleep in a bit and be more relaxed (that will be hard for me &#128547but i will try to go along with it. Good thing i will have the lounge to get out the room while he rests. He says he just wants to hold my hand the whole time😍

We are looking forward to actually sitting together in the Rose and Crown Pub for a drink. Most, if not all, of our evenings will be spent in Epcot.

That's about it, i guess. He needs some stress free time so thats what i'll strive for.

If your DH wants to sleep in find our group of ladies at BWV & hang with us! We're ages 41-63 and all met here on the DIS in the last 10 years. We've been going to WDW together 1-3x a year since 2009! We have a former CM in the group as well, and a parent of a current MK CM, so we know the ropes LOL!! We're up & out pretty early to the parks - you're welcome to join us! We did leave the 24th free as a pool day - but I know me - I will want to squeez every dime out of my AP so I'll have to get a park in that morning!

WE stayed a week. We drove two cars and pulled a Uhaul for the luggage. Everyone paid for their own park admission and food other than one breakfast that we paid for at Chef Mickeys (and they all had to wear their mortarboard ears hats).

We took the master bedroom, girls upstairs, boys downstairs. Worked out pretty good. Once was enough, though.

1 room is fine for us. The other resort gave an adjoining room b/c the room only had 1 king bed. No tub is ok too. The roll in shower is the most important for DD. The transferring is done by her Dad as she does not do it herself, not enough strength. She uses a manual chair, which she can push. We are very excited to stay at BWV! I have been reading everything I can find and enjoying all the pics. The resort looks beautiful! We usually eat at Cape May and walk all around that area. It will be very nice to stay there! We plan to enjoy the resort and the pool! This site has been wonderful!

Lots of us overlapping woo hoo!

Does anyone know where the map of BWV is? maybe I saw it on the DVC board. It shows where studios, 1BR & 2BR in each view catgeory are.

Sorry I stand corrected on this answer.

I'm still having a senior moment because I still can't remember where the hot tub is at the BW Villas quiet pool.
