Post 1 has been updated with some more finalized numbers for Copper Creek, and a few other minor updates and cleanup.

Note that the main thing I am unable to get information on for Copper Creek has to do with the Walk-In Shower rooms. I know there are 41 Studios with Showers, but of those I am unable to find how many are in Dedicated Studios and how many are in Lock-Offs. If anyone has seen this information posted, let me know.

Default Thanks!

Wow! This is great! Thanks for doing all this work!

I find the numbers of each time of room the most interesting. Definitely explains why we have only gotten a value room at AKV one time!

This is one thing I refer to it a lot for.....# and types of rooms. If i’m Looking to put in a WL request for a resort, I check to see which view has the most rooms and WL that view. Always more likely to have a WL come through if there are more rooms of that category!

I'm trying to recall if there was a reason I didn't include this in the numbers... but I want to now for sure. I will see if I can find them and include in my next update, or if someone knows please post them here.

I have seen which buildings are Near HH, but it seems the buildings are different layouts/sizes, so it would take a little more time to count it all up.

I know I have read some things on here that DVC will not officially commit to exactly which bldg are considered HH. (I specifically remember a rant thread about walking a ressie for HH GV only to get put in a farther bldg and being told it was also considered HH). My own personal experience was last IKW stay getting put in bldg 15 and being told it was a wonderful location because (cheerily) “it was almost HH” . I had requested near laundry, so while I get it was just a request, I was trying again at the desk to get a better room, which is how I got the syrupy sell on this inconvenient location. At that point, I couldn’t resist asking ; exactly what was considered HH and getting the Disney run-around. I asked the question specifically because of these other posts and I wanted to hear for myself what they would say. I tend to agree with other posters that while there may be specific bldg in the ressie system as HH, when it comes time for room assignments they reserve the right to get “creative”, Thus, it may be a challenge to get official information.

Having said all that, I would be very interested to find out if someone can get official info.
