Yep...was able to book Concierge for the 2, but not 3,4.

Same for 1 bd Value (for my daughter & kids) got 2, but not 3 or 4.

I have seen other posts on other boards talking about this same challenge. I have heard all kinds of conspiracy theories on it but I will leave them to the other boards.

Default same thing in July

I noticed the same issue for about a week in July, when I was checking availability daily between midnight and 8am. Eventually the days became available again.

I tried to book a standard view this morning and it told me I couldn't book till May 4. Jambo is my home resort so it's not the message people get between kidani and jambo.
I also had a value booked at 11 months for this month and they called a few days after I booked to say the room would be out of service and they were moving me to a standard.
All kinds of mysteries.

I kept getting the same message for my attempts to book at BRVillas/ Maybooking window. I guess it was default with new home page design.

Now I am trying to figure out why BRV studio sleeps 5 (correct) but the description for the 1 bedroom also states sleeps 5 during the booking process.I checked to see the correct description with the room floor plans.
It states sleeps 4 but will accomodate 5 in 1 bedroom with no bedding provided.
They do not have a room update to make design change. So the point per night seems incorrect.
1 studio for 92 points
1 bedroom villa for 208
2 bedroom villa for 271
Dates at BRV we’re checked for 12/10/2019 arrival
In comparison the newer Copper Creek one bedroom is 180 points for 6 night arrival Jan 10th.

Did they. Make a mistake thinking the 1 bedrooms sleep 5 or do they have refurb redesign upcoming before the holidays.

Not sure price tag for a chair warrants that much of increase. Especially in the BRV.
But thank you for explanation.

The 2042 resorts have allowed 5 ppl to be booked into the 1BR's for a long long time. And they have always been bring the bed and bedding for the 5th person. No mistake - and no refurb to add another bed.

Unless you made mistake in typing you've compared a Dec arrival for BRV to a Jan arrival for CCV.

No I just double checked and the Booking calendar doesn’t advance to January dates yet.
6 night arrival 12/10
BLT Standard Stusio 90. 1bedr villa 198
BRV Standard studio 92. 1 bedr villa 208
CCC standard studio 92. 1 bedroom villa 189

Doesn’t make any sense to me especially since VWL has never been one of the more popular resorts and the resale value has stagnated.

Why would anybody book at BRV for more than the CCC?

And why is DVC allowed to state booking for 5 with nothing provided in the deluxe resort industry without embarrassing itself?
