My dd9 thought the sleeper sofa was comfy. I laid down on it a few times and thought it was pretty comfortable too. Maybe it depends on how old the sleeper sofa in your unit is. Ours seemed fairly new (we were in tower 4). Either way you should be fine. At the end of the day my daughter was soooo tired she would have slept on the dinning room table and been good

I've always pulled the mattress off the frame and laid it on the floor when I've had to sleep on sofa beds. It's usually the frame that sucks. It's much more comfortable that way.

When we were there this past October they were replacing the sofas (we were in tower 4) and we had a brand new sleeper. My Dmom and DD slept on the sofa bed and said it was great!

Anyone have any recent trip reports? I got a great quote from VS for early May that I would like to act on, but there are some really bad recent reviews on tripadvisor.com.

You have to take the reviews with a cation. A resort this type, specificaly Bonnet Creek itself is a bridge between people who normally only stay in a cheaper hotel hotel and those who stay in higher end hotels.

this place bridges the gap. those who are used to "all stars" for example see Bonnet Creek as a Luxery Condo where they should be pampered. not understanding that you are required to cook and clean up afteryourself. No maid to do the bed every night.

The latter group understand the value you are getting at Bonnet creek and are fine with some of the self service options.

The time share business as a hole is pretty high pressure. some folks seem to deal with it better than others.

Look at my list of where i have stayed in disney below. We tend to be on the more upscale side with Disney Deluxes and Marriots (kings of time share vacations)

Bonnet Creek quality resort that has been well maintained. the service is good. The price is right. My only negatives have always been with the type of clients Bonnect Creek seems to draw. not being an elitetest, but some of the poeple just looking for a cheap way to house a family of 6 or 8, dont know how to act at a nice place like this.

All that being said, we are booked for a 2 bedroom this March in Bonnet Creek. It is our preffered off site place to stay.

We were just there and had an amzing trip. We stayed in a 3 bedroom presidential for 9 nights 12/28-1/6. Booked through VS with a rate of $1950. We loved WBC and will definitely return. It was a perfect fit for our family. Resort was gorgeous with so much to do for adults and children. Staff was incredibly helpful and caring. No high pressure sales pitch. And the absolute best for us was the location! VS was great to work with and we would book through them again.

Are the 3-BR Presidential spread across all 6 buildings? Or, are they only in certain buildings, if so, which one should we request? I'm getting close to pull the tricker on this one. Are the 3-BR Presidential all corner unit? Just curious.

When you are ready to book with VS, do you just follow the link or call them to book? I see you can just book on-line with a deposit.

Thanks everyone!

1, 2 and 3 bedroom presidentials are only located in building 6.

4-bedroom presidentials are located in all towers.

chances for a 4 bedroom presidential

I received an email from Vacation Strategy saying that they don't have a 4 bedroom presidential for my dates (7/13-7/17) but they will put me on a wait list. What experience have you had with eventually getting the unit you want if you were wait listed for it?
I think I'll have to reserve a 3 bedroom and hope for the best but would appreciate any insights you might have on this.

How long does it normally take to get an online quote from Vacation Strategy? Is it better to call them?
