For families traveling with 5 it works perfectly for us. We do not spend much time in the room other than sleeping (cannot really cook in a Studio) so the space is not really an issue (except at BLT where 3 people felt crowded..ugh). The 5th bed has been a blessing at BCV/BWV. Love it at VGF too.

Our other points-system timeshare limits studios to only TWO occupants. The 1BR sleeps 4, generally. I *like* the low cap on Studio occupancy.

Disney keeps their room capacities lower than many other similarly-sized (or even lesser-sized) rooms at other hotels. I figure if it's good enough for a normal hotel, then it's fine for Disney too. Most of the regular deluxe rooms have sleeping for 5 too so there's plenty of precedent.

That being said, I think that so many of the one-bedrooms only sleep 4 is more of an issue. There are plenty of hotels with one-bedroom rooms, including kitchens, that have sleeping for 5 or 6. We stay in one every year when visiting family out-of-town and there's no issue with space. It seems to be a design issue for Disney that "prevents" it in some of the rooms.

That is one reason the 1BR are last to rent. They are almost always available at 7 months except at the really high seasons...

I actually like two beds in the studios...like OKW. I would like a choice of a king, or two real beds. I really dislike the queen and sofa not-bed.

Saw on TripAdvisor (I know, not a reliable source) that there is a model/test room setup already. Has anyone seen it? Does it exist?

Outlets with USB ports would be like winning the lottery! The rest, whatever.

We would take a king size bed over a second night stand, but it would be awesome to have both!
Doubt we will get either, but I can dream

Kick that giant worthless tub out the door and it would be easy. Whoever thought that louvers constitutes privacy needs a smack in the forehead. I like the 1BD room, but the bathtub configuration is inane.
