    a lockoff studio has a door to a 1BR that can be opened so that disney can book the room as a 2BR villa or "locked-off" so that the 1BR and studio can be booked separately.

    a dedicated studio is just that. it's a studio with no door to a 1BR.

    no other difference. i think dedicated studios are either pool view or savanna view but views cannot be requested with value villas. i've stayed in value studios twice - i got a savanna view one time and a parking lot view the other time. somebody has to get the parking lot views...it probably won't be you, but if you've got to have a good view, book one of the larger studios with a specified view. otherwise, enjoy the savings and watch the animals from any of several public viewing areas...

    No request are allowed when booking the value rooms, you just get what you get.

    The extra bedroom in the dedicated 2 bdrm has two queen beds vs the one in the lockoff has one bed and a pull-out sofa.
