    Getting back to your original question, be aware that the 1-BR DVC units have one king bed and one pullout queen couch. Some - but not SSR, which is what you’re most likely to get via RCI - have the pullout chair as well, but most do not. So keep that in mind when considering who will sleep with whom.

    Your one yr old will not count towards occupancy and can sleep in the pack and play that is provided in each villa. Your three year old will need to sleep with you or your mother. You'll get one king bed and one queen sleeper sofa at SSR.

    Only BLT, OKW and AKV (not the value villas) have the twin sized sleeper chair in the living room. And that chair is too heavy and wide to move to the bedroom in case you were wondering.

    Often we think the second bath is more important than a second bedroom at DVC! :) I just made a change to our July reservation from a one-bedroom to a two-bedroom unit @ OKW since a cousin decided to join us and I was crossing my fingers one was available (it was). But late November is pretty tough unless planning begins very early. We got a late start with that ourselves this year and have decided to wait until late February or early March 2019 and maybe catch some Spring Training games to boot. But I heartily agree that the holiday decorations are wonderful!

    Take an air mattress for the 2.5 year old.
    Unless you have the dining plan judging by what I see going on in DVC unit occupancies nobody is checking magic bands for all. I am not sure if the Murphy twins have made their way to SSR but a small to medium sized adult can sleep perfectly fine on those if they don’t have trouble getting up from a low position or remember to watch their head while going to the bathroom at night. Take a small nightlight just in case.

    Housekeeping is doing trash service every day now but she is in and out without batting an eye.

    That's interesting.
    I wonder why they are backtracking on CCV with the 5th occupants.
    I've never understood why they allowed that in the first place but
    maybe because people were already doing it.

    I think it's the physical plant, there simply wasn't enough room to do so. Personally I think doing it at any location was a mistake.

    I agree, there shouldn't be 5 in a 1br let alone in a studio. But its much better to cramp 5 into a 1br than it is in a studio.

    IMHO the two top reasons for disney doing this is.
    1. They can sell the dvc membership for families that requires room for 5, they can stay in a studio or 1br because the 2br option is too expensive point wise.
    2. when Disney splits the costs of running the resorts between DVC and the regular disney hotel, then they always(so I read) use the occupancy limits to calculate the split. With 5 in a studio or 1br then the DVC members pay more of the annual cost to run the resort.

    I dont know if option #2 is just because its easier as "one size fits all" per room type when the calculation is done. It could also be that its because Disney want members to pay more of the annual costs. Might also be a combo.

    1. There is plenty of room in a 1BR for five at SSR, but you must bring an air mattress and bedding for the extra person.
    2. You must set up all five people in the room ahead of time via DVC. They will send you five magic bands, etc. It's all fine and accepted.
    3. If you arrive at the hotel and want to add a 5th person, or you forget to add someone ahead of time, the hotel side can't add a 5th person even when they want to. The computer system on the hotel side won't let them do it. Also, once you are checked in to the resort, the DVC side can't fix the reservation because their computer system won't let them do it once you are checked in to the resort. We booked a last-second stay and neglected to add our kids to the reservation via DVC ahead of time. The front desk at the resort could only add two kids, so that means one kid didn't get a working room key and there could of been issues for Extra Magic Hours at the parks.

    The murphy beds are smaller than twins. They call them bunk sized. Shorter and narrower. The one bedrooms do not have the murphy bed, except for GFV. AKV, OKW and BLT have the twin sized sleeper chair in the one bedroom living room (except for the AKV-Value villas at Jambo House).
