I wanted to know if anyone has slept on either of the pull out beds in the 1 BR Villas, and if so, how comfortable were they?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Please and thank you!
We've had guests CHOOSE both when they didn't need to, and they said both were comfy. I think the chair was more comfortable than the sofa, but it is small.

How close to the stay should special requests such as this be made? I can't figure out how to do with the online reservation so I assume you must make a call.

You should make your requests when you make your reservations. Call now.

Thank you! Great to hear! At this point I have not requested a specific room, how would I go about doing that? Just calling into the Disney Booking number?

How did you book OKW? Through Member Services or Disney Reservation Center?

We booked through the Reservation Center, we aren't DVC. Does that affect our chances of asking for a specific area in the resort?

Well, you won't get the Hospitality House area since that is reserved for members on points. Just call DRC and add your request to your reservation for a villa numbered 30 or higher if you want the two entrances into the bathroom in the one bedroom villa.

We were in building 16 last week and I LOVED that location.
Awesome view, quick to bus stop, hh, and the pool. Only thing lacking was the second bathroom door.

We are unsure if we want hh area. Dh and I need to talk if not near hh what areas are easiest walks to the hh area as kids love the feature pool. We will drive to the parks as dh gets annoyed with the buses so bus stop area doesn't matter. I like turtle pond area but from the map can't tell which building would be best for hh access and turtle pool access

Building 16 is very convenient to one of the parking lots too.
Honestly, I am glad I didn't research what building to stay at I was so pleasantly surprised with 16.

Beautiful, thanks so much! I will definitely do that.

Any other tips and tricks would be much appreciated as well.

I was in a 1BR last month. I slept on the pull out chair, not the sofa. It just seemed easier than pulling out the couch. After a few days, I even left it pulled out during the day, it does not take up that much space in the room. (I would not have left the couch bed pulled out all day!) I know that was lazy, but hey, I was on vacation!

Bldgs 30 & 31 are the Turtle Pond area bldgs that are closest to the HH area, but since you'll have a car, you can just drive up to HH...You can just request to be near Turtle Pond pool and then drive to HH area when needed.

I shall be at OKW for the first time in exactly 5 weeks. Hadn't really thought about requesting a location before now. It's just me, in a studio, no car so relying on transport.
I'd like to be somewhere convenient to an early morning mug-refill location with easy access to the bus. Close to transport/walking to DTD would also be nice.
Any suggestions experts?

THere is never any real need to "walk" to HH pool any farther than your nearest bus stop. All buses stop at HH before exiting the resort.
