Booking Smaller 1 BR in Orlando with Balcony question

We own a 2 br unit and with the kids out of the house often book a Premium 1 BR when we visit Orlando. Considering how to maximize the length of our stay, and only a few sections in SVR or SVV have balconies on their smaller 1 br units. Booking with staroptions, does anyone have any hints how we can be sure (if booking a smaller 1br) of getting into a unit with a balcony? Or is it only the 'luck of the draw' at checkin?

Balconies are big with us for morning coffee and meals LOL

You can request at Sheraton Vistana Villages - ask for St Augustine Phase - it has a balcony in the 1 bedroom villas.

I understand on the balcony too.
