Back on the BWV Studio "daybed" topic... Based on the numbers I just added, I think I have a better guess why the only allow people to book the BWV Garden/Pool Studio for 5 and not the others.

There are 74 dedicated Studios for Garden/Pool View, and only 15 Standard and 8 Boardwalk. That means that 76.3% of the rooms with the "daybed" are in the Garden/Pool View ... making it much easier for the room assigners to reliably make it happen for those groups that booked for 5. If they allowed the same in the Standard or Boardwalk View they would have a much harder time, and disappoint people much more often.

Seem plausible?

Thank you. Very useful tool.

I echo the "sticky" request to board guides for the final version.

(Omg, I cannot believe that iPad tried to auto correct "board" to "lard" in the above statement. My apologies if anyone read it before I caught it!!!)

You are welcome. If it is made a sticky I am willing to keep it up to date as changes happen in the future.

I did see the "lard" typo since I got an email notification... but I knew what you meant.

We have stayed in the value studios at BW with 5, the youngest at the time about 15.
This was probably 2008 or 2009--our oldest was married in 2010 so before then.
We booked on the phone, I think this was before online booking was available.
It was handled as a request only and stated as such on confirmation. Before all studios were deluxe, I think this is what they called the ones with the little bench.
We had one and our inlaws with us also had the one next to us.
We brought an airbed with sheets and blanket so it didn't matter if we got it or not.

I assume you mean dining. Yes, if there are 5 people on the reservation then they would all have the dining plan if you added it.
