Nicnic - Alex9719 and I think you have a sofa bed. I believe some people are interpreting that as a day bed. Can you tell us which resort (YC or BC) and what type of room? I'm concerned that people are going to look at your photo, and if their room is supposed to have a day bed, they will think it will have what you had. Or better yet, edit your post to explain what type of room you have.It is (a sofa bed). Looks like a full sized mattress.
We are going to go to dinner at the Turf Club at Saratoga Springs one night (heard good things about it). Any suggestions for getting there? Is it close enough to Disney Springs that we could take the bus there and then walk over to Saratoga Springs? Also, we are staying at the YC this time. We are taking the bus to Disney Springs on a few nights, do we get picked up first and are there a bunch of bus stops after we are picked up?
I think the no-carpet look is not going to work on most levels. Contact guest services and let them know your concerns. A loud guest room is not conducive to a relaxing stay.Just got back from an amazing stay at the YC! We were upgraded to a water view room and got a renovated one too! The new rooms are so nice, especially the bath areas. I love the barn door that closes off the vanity and bath area from the rest of the room so you can get some more privacy. I'm on the fence about the new floors, I like the look and they seem more sanitary, but boy are they loud. We could hear everything from the room next to us, from regular conversations to people walking around. Throw in some boisterous kids and it can get pretty loud, as it did one night of our trip. Fortunately it was only one night, so we didn't loose too much sleep!
We did have a bath in our room as well, although we would have preferred just a shower. Oh, and the pocket door to the bathroom is so much better than the old setup. It was such a pain to try to close those doors before!
I'll post pictures once I figure out where my camera is packed and wake up from a much needed nap!
Love this room. I showed it to my daughter who will be sleeping on either the sofa bed or day bed or whatever. That balcony also looked really large. Awesome.Hi. Yes I'll post the room number when we leave. It is a lovely room and I'm glad if the space. Only wish they had more storage!! We've struggled as a family of 4! We called housekeeping and they provided us with extra bedding for the day bed and more clothes hangers. Csnt believe how big the day bed is, I thought it would be smaller, my dd5 loves it.

It is never wise to request a specific room. With Villa occupancy near 100% it is likely that room will not be available. Rather state what you would like. "Near elevator " or " higher floor" etc.Hello!
First timers here in 10. Days for a 2 bedroom BC Villa...A few questions...
1. I know they dont guarantee room types but can I request a certain room/location? If so, which ones? (I booked via dreams unlimited). I saw some Balconies are short and some are full size?
2. Are the renos done for BC 2 BR Villas? Are there still 2 types? The standard 2 BR and the one with a connecting Studio? Which is better? Its my wife and two teen boys.
3. Any other cool reccomendations? It is very important we make this a good trip (see my other posts if interested) but fear not we keep our expectations in check.
4. Is the AC in the rooms good?
Thanks, we will do that.The DS bus depot is now at Town Center in the middle of DS. The walkways to SSR are at either end of DS - The West Side or the Marketplace depending on where you want to go.
To the Turf Club you would want the walkway from The Marketplace.
IMO, it is a fair walk from the DS bus depot to The Turf Club in SSR.
I would probably taxi/Uber to SSR for dinner.
The concern about fans is more about air movement. I sleep with the fan on winter/summer, because I'm more comfortable with how moving air feels in our humid area. I don't think most people are having trouble with keeping their room cool, just a few have had equipment malfunction.We are staying at the YC for the first time this August, after staying at the BC last year. I really can't believe Disney is making it so difficult to keep your room cold if a guest prefers it that way. We always sleep in a cooler temperature and when I am paying a lot of money at a deluxe hotel, I don't want to wake up hot in a room with no airflow. Disney should not be nickel and diming their guests. I can't believe people have to drag in a box fan at a deluxe hotel because Disney wants to keep their electric bill for the a/c down. Sorry, but I find this unacceptable.
It seems like the lowest temp you can set the thermostat for is 68 BUT during the night when there is no movement the a/c doesn't go on when the temp goes above 68. This is done to save energy. I think there is 2 issues, one no fans or air movement and the other is the temp going up because the sensor does not detect movement in the room when you are sleeping.The concern about fans is more about air movement.

I'm on the Gulf Coast and keep our A/C at 78. It's a comfortable temp for everyone, but I like a fan running. 68 is more than cool enough if the thermostat is functioning correctly. That's my winter heat setting and I'm the only one in my house who isn't chilled.
Full disclosure, I've had hot flashes since my 30s and run hot. I'm not "average" in tolerance and don't expect an issue...except that I really like air movement.
