Our vacation style changed to suites/1BR's with kids after one trip where sharing a room did not go well for sleeping at night or for naps. Other benefits helped too from a quality-of-vacation perspective such as a small kitchen (we can't eat out more than one meal a day without feeling a bit overdone) and washer/dryer (pack-less) DVC 1BR's were a perfect match, though studios could certainly house our small family. I think house/condo/Airbnb type rentals for larger units for future non-Disney trips are a good idea for us to look into once we exhaust some old hotel-chain points.

I voted no because I had already owned other timeshares and already appreciated the larger accommodations and the home-away-from-home amenities.

Yes it has. For multiple day stays anywhere it's 1bd or 2 with a kitchen

I think many resorts close to WDW are catching on. If you look at room choices and amenities they have suites with bunk beds .
Disney only offers location and better transportation for higher cost.
I actually think the couch in DVC looks frumpy so I am happy to see the new updates using the bed in wall pull out. Seriously need them everywhere.

We only stay in multi-bedroom accomodations with laundry and and kitchen.

But that was the work of the arrival of child no. 3, not DVC. DVC fit our needs, rather than created them.

AirBNB, however, really has changed the way we travel. Instead of hunting for random hotel suites that kind of tick our boxes, but tend to be in outer-suburbs type locals . . . we find houses that give us a GREAT experience.
