GF and BC room size?

Is there really a big difference in room size? My sister is going with us and her four kiddos...they will be renting a toddler bed for her two-year-old. Anyone been in both?

There is an awesome bed called The Shruks Tuckaire Toddler bed that is inflatable. It is on amazon. It is lightweight to travel with and I recommend it over renting a bed.

Yes, there is a difference

The GF and CR rooms are the biggest in WDW. BC rooms are not small, however.

Do you all intend to stay in one room? Or are you getting connecting rooms?

The rooms at the GF at YC looked to be about the same size to me. I've not stayed at the BC, but have to think that the room size is the same as at YC. The rooms at the Poly are definitely much larger than either GF or YC.

We have stayed at both and the GF rooms are significantly larger than the BC rooms.

We have stayed at GF three times and are at BC right now and for sure the room here at BC feels smaller.

We've stayed at GF twice. The first time was a non-dormer room and that definitely felt bigger than BC. The second time was a dormer room and it felt about the same, if not a bit smaller than BC because it had a chair with ottoman instead of a sofa, which I missed. I'm not positive about the dimensions of the dormer rooms - if they actually are smaller or it's just perception because of the ceiling slopes.
