Rooms at the various DVC locations do differ in sizes. I haven't stayed at studios in either location, but the even the regular rooms at AKL Jambo are smaller than the regular rooms at BWI.

We were in a standard studio and had 2083. It was so convenient to the pool, lobby and buses. It was dedicated so there was not a connecting door.

Thanks so much! Will keep it in mind if we end up renting points for a studio in april! Don't mind walking, will just need to see a map to find stairs if needed.

If you don't rent your points soon, you will probably only be able to book the preferred-garden/pool view and not the standard view. You might already be too late for standard view villas for spring break/Easter.

The dvc member can check for me thursday. So that is why i am getting my info ready so she can look into what is available. Should i buy tix from ut or through her so that there will be no confusion with the whole fp+? Adding dining for sure.... If nothing is available then we stick with a package from disney direct. Thanks to all!

Thanks for letting the OP know the difference.

I don't know how many King SV rooms there are, but maybe someone else has requested one and will post if they got one.

We're here atBWI now! The weather is hot but a beautiful day. The pool wasn't crowded at all earlier. We're staying CL with a boardwalk view & a nice balcony with two chairs & a table. It's a wonderful view. Though before our stay I had read negative reviews because of the noise from the boardwalk; we haven't had any problems with noise. Our first night we ate at California Grill. It was delicious & the views are amazing. Yesterday we spent the day at Epcot. The crowds were heavier than last year when we came around the same time, but still not bad. We dined at Teppan Edo, it was great (except for the chicken which was dry). But all the other items and our chef were terrific. Tonight is MNSSHP!

Thanks so much for the report, and have a great time at MNSSHP!!! I know there are so many different perspectives regarding the Boardwalk view, but we really love it. I find it very relaxing, and just love the music, the water, the boats, etc. I did note that it was more quiet and relaxing when our room was above the Boardwalk Bakery instead of right above Flying Fish. In 2011, I thought our room above FF was the best ever. But when we settled into our room above the Bakery earlier this year, it was even better than the best ever!

You can't buy tickets from the member. So buy them from UT if you like. Or directly from Disney.

thanks wasnt sure if the member could have disney(member services) add them on and we pay by credit card, just like with the Dining plan. I know that if we go this route we will have her add the dining for sure.
