2 BR/Bunk beds?

This is a very helpful thread!

I have searched for information on rooms with bunk beds. Do any of the DVC Villas have them? We have a 2br reserved for February.

Also, is the 2BR Villa #6500 available for a general 2br reservation or is that a Presidential Suite?

Thanks!

None of the DVC rooms have bunkbeds in them. You can not guarantee what Villa you will receive room 6500 is one of 23 2 bedroom units, you have a one in 23 chance of getting that Villa.

You need to check out the last page of this thread
The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Owners & Lovers Group - 2.0
to see how your room view requests can be made. It is by no means an absolute guarantee BUT definitely worth a shot! I will be trying this with my next 3 short trips for next year! Already stated in the request - higher park view floors but NOW I have added actual room numbers to the request. We usually check in the hour before early entry but this time I also CHECK the room # BEFORE I sign & if it is not what I want I have them attempt to change before I will AGREE to sign.

Wow, I just stumbled upon this thread and saw all the wonderful room views for VGC. We will be heading to DLR for the first time in June and are staying at VGC in hopefully a 1-bedroom, but if we can't get that, then we will try for a studio. There will be 4 of us (me, DH, DD12, and DD9 at time of trip) and we are uber excited about our stay. I want to thank bigAWL for making and maintaining this thread because I am getting a lot of info out of it and I love looking at all of the room views. Of course, I would love to have a view with PP, but we will take whatever we get .

Do you already have your reservation? If not, you need to start looking for an existing reservation for rent. As of this moment(could change over time), there is only 1 night in a 1 bedroom available the entire month of June. There is no studio availability the entire month.

We stayed in #6502 in November of 2012.... I know you have pics from this room already but these are without all the construction, so I thought they would be helpful for those folks looking for a more current view:

The more the merrier. Thanks for the update!

I've added both of these to the front page links.

Sorry, I haven't been on the DVC boards in a while so I didn't notice you responded to me until today. Yes we have our villa booked for our stay in June . We decided to book a Studio rather than a 1-bedroom so we could save points....we wanted to stay a bit longer so we can see the rest of SoCal. Thank you so much for checking the availability for me, it was very sweet of you to do that. It is crazy how fast those villas book up, we had already put our dates in for 6/6-6/14 but decided we wanted to add one more day. I tried looking at availability for any room category but had no luck with it. I ended up booking a 1 night stay at DLH before we head over to VGC. We are not upset about it by any means because this is our first ever trip (possibly last for a very long time) to DLR and staying at another hotel (even if it is for 1 night) will add to our magical vacation .

Just to tell you how fast the Studios booked up....the day I booked it there was availability all over the place. Then that afternoon I went back in there to check on something and found that most of my dates that I had just booked were already booked up . Thank goodness I got up extremely early that morning and used online booking to get my dates.

Does anyone have any pics of 2520 or has anyone stayed in that room and can comment on the view?

Hopefully, someone can post photos - but I haven't found that person yet. You could take a look at the view from room 3522, though. It should be similar, just from one floor lower, so with more tree cover. For WoC, expect to see only the tall veritical jets above the trees.
