Question about Studio Villas

Hello

I have a question if you book a studio, I see that sometimes a daybed is in the room, how many rooms have this and is it hard to get?
Would you have to request it when making your reservation?
Also can a small child sleep on it, or is it just for sitting?

Thanks

The daybed is more like a deacon's bench with a crib sized mattress on it. We had one when our son was about five and he hated it. It used to be a booking category (called a Studio Plus). But no more. You cannot request it and it is just the luck of the draw. This is all dedicated studios (meaning they do not connect to a one bedroom to make a two bedroom lock off). The deacon's bench is located where the connecting door would have been.

Just wanted to update, we had a wonderful stay last week in a 1 bedroom boardwalk view. We were in room 5017 and had a great view and a HUGE balcony that we loved. It was a bit of a walk form the elevators but we got used to it.

We sat on the balcony and watched Illuminations several nights and could even see the MK fireworks over behind the Yacht club. We had some chilly days midweek and only ended up swimming one day at the beginning of the week but we enjoyed the pool and DD loved the slide.

And we loved being able to walk to the World Showcase. I'm going to try to switch our March trip from AKV to BWV. DH said he wished we had bought here instead of BLT but I do like BLT too and look forward to staying there again in a year or two after we try some other places.

That is such a great room. We stayed there in October and would request again if we could.

I wanted to join this board. I just was able to switch our resort from AoA to BWI Deluxe CL for May!!! With the discount pin that was sent to my e-mail it was only about $1700 more for BWI than it was to stay in a family suite at AoA, and of course I'm just a tiny bit spoiled by my DH.

We have always wanted to stay at a Deluxe but I never dreamed that we would be able to do CL and I was pretty sure the Deluxe would have been after my oldest goes to college. So I am more than excited to stay here!!

Thanks for all this amazing information, I've read at least 50+ pages already.

Thank you! I'll have to post your room location information to the first page (and some others I think I recently missed)

How exciting! There's a lot to digest here so feel free to post any questions you might have. Have you booked any ADRs yet?

We have one ADR so far. I think I might be making one more, but my DH despises being 'held' down by ADRs. So we don't usually have that many. Lol we are looking forward to all the QS places right inside Epcot though.

I'm new, planning my 2nd trip ever to WDW and first stay at BWI next month (I should put that in my signature to explain my ignorance!). So there are two quiet pools at BWI? And where are the hot tub/jacuzzis? Will those be closed too?

Hi pinksand! On December 8, the BWI itinerary planning office told me that the only pool option for BWI guests during the Luna Park pool closure will be the two quiet pools at BWI. But since then, another poster reported that DVC Member Services said BWI guests may also use Stormalong Bay at BC. Not sure if that's just DVC members staying at BWI or everyone staying at BWI during the Luna Park closure. But I hope it will be all of us!

If you have some free time on your hands , the pics I posted on 131-135 were from room 5041 on the Villa side. Great view, relatively close to the elevators, good condition, would definitely recommend.

I could also send pics of the view from our room at the Wynn in Las Vegas where we are now, but that's way !!

I see in your Sig you're concentrating on the Flower & Garden festival, you'll REALLY love how close the BW is to Epcot. For the F&G or F&W, you can't beat the Epcot resorts. Enjoy!! (Ps -- on the topic of ADRs, you may want to check out Flying Fish!)
