The Murphy bed isn't very long. I would guess it wouldn't be very comfortable if someone were much over 5'.

My wife and I slept on the couch pullout and got by with enough room (I'm 6'2", 185 and my wife is 5'7"). It was the most comfortable pullout I ever slept on.

Was that your first choice villa? And if so, why not 6502?

5502 is my third choice.

6502 is first: on the 6th floor and there are very few rooms in the area.
5508 is second: slightly better angle to view WOC
5502 is third:

I am happy with any Paradise Pier view, which for 1 bedroom villas is:
6502, 5502, 4502, 3502, 5508, 4508, 3508

Now keep in mind that I did not tried to adjust the other beds around like I usually do in the hotel room so my rather large 2 teenage boys had to share one of the beds while another teenage boy (son's friend) had the other bed to himself! My friend and her family (2 extra people) had the living room so couldn't do it there! Luckily it was only a 1 night stay but I over estimated the size of my air mattress (it has a head board shape to it) which we just purchased! So maybe yours will be fine or maybe just a twin size is even better! Also, yes the hair dryer in the second room (in a black bag) but not in the bathroom across from the kitchen. Enjoy your time @ VGC & DLR!!
Thanks so much! I'm going to hope that we are in a dedicated 2 bedroom and go from there! Luckily the air mattress is a twin and DS3 is pillow bed, so I'm hoping we can make it work!

We love 3522 over all the other 2BR's. It's always #1 on the request.

That was my choice as well. Loved it. Though I might try a higher floor next time. If only the grand villa above it were two more 2BRs. "I'd like room 5522, please."

I have #3522 written in my notes as having a view somewhat blocked by the tree tops. Do you happen to have any balcony pics of your view? I am renting points and haven't asked my owner to add my specific room number requests yet. TIA!

I have managed to piece together 3 nights (Mar 24-27, 2013) at VGC! We've been to DL many times, but just became members last year (home is Aulani) so this is our first visit staying in the villas I am definitely going to be using all this excellent input to put in a good room request! It will be my daughter's 10th birthday celebration so a great view would just top it off!

There is no online checkin.
It might be possible to call and pre-checkin, but I have never tried.

March 2013

If anyone is needing to cancel a studio res around the second or third week of March 2013, plz pm me about it! I am looking to rent points for a studio but the studios are all booked.
I know it's a long shot but I figured I'd at least put it out there. Maybe someone can make my DLR wishes come true!
