That photo in the previous post is the current sleeper sofa at BWV, not the old one. See the cushions under the foot of the bed? BCV has the same type. I think VWL also has this one, but we didn't open ours up in January. We had a two bedroom and only four people.

I thought this type was a bit more comfortable than the one at OKW, SSR, BLT (three section mattress pad on a platform.

We use to be DVC members, so we knew the drill! LOL!

This is the only resort that we had serious problems with the pull out.
please write to DVC and CRO - have your travel agent write too - you should not have too spend $300 more of your money.

it was not your fault that the silly sofa bed did not work. So why should you have to pay.hope you wrote down the names of the CM who basically refused to help you.

so sorry!!!

The BLT fold outs are nothing like that picture. They are thicker, no bars, 3 sections. My kids slept on it 2 weeks ago with no issues. I laid on it and thought it was better than the POR mattress we had the night before.

As for that BWV bed, that's pitiful.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

I didn't think the sofa bed I slept on at Kidani was very comfortable. I think if we stay at a DVC resort again and I get the sofa bed, I'm going to Walmart and getting a airbed!

No, they are not thicker. They are the three section pad on a platform.

Yup, it was pitiful! We were at BLT the year before and had no problem with the pullout at all. Sadly, we've not had good experiences at BWV, so we'll pass on that resort in the future. I love the location which is why we tried it one more time in October for Food and Wine, alas, not meant to be....again.

I didn't mind the upcharge, because we went from a one bedroom to a two bedroom, so I was fine with the additional cost, which was still less that it would have been if I'd booked the two bedroom from the beginning.

OKW was great...gave us a choice of locations when we got there and the room was ready immediately.

both 27yo DD and i have disc problems, and found the BWV sofabed fine for sleeping (no princess and the pea).
however, DH is significantly larger, and found it okay for a night, but not close enough to the comfort of a real bed. he tried it as a sofa (not using the pull-out) and preferred that support and comfort (of course, we had to run tests).
btw, the new sofabeds are much more comfy than the old type; one of us uses the BWV sofabeds about 20 nights each year so we have a bit of up close and personal experience with them.

a lighter person or child probably will likely be fine - more weight on a thinner matttress will affect that person's or persons' comfort.

When I said thicker, I meant in relative terms to most sofa beds I've ever encountered, including the one in my house. I did not mean I had actual measurements.
