    I am a DVC Member and hoping to plan a visit to Aulani in 2020. I noticed I can use points to reserve a villa or a resort room. We typically stay in a deluxe studio while at WDW. What are the differences between a resort room and a deluxe studio at Aulani?

    Aloha, Darya.
    The start of this new decade seems like a perfect time to visit Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai'i with your 'Ohana. Being a Disney Vacation Club Member myself, I love the flexibility of using our points not only at the Walt Disney World Resort, but at other Disney Vacation Club Resorts around the country. Thanks for bringing your question about the room types to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. While both options sleep four guests, the Standard room gives you approximately 382 square feet of space while the Deluxe Studio is slightly smaller at approximately 356 square feet. Both options have either a balcony or porch, which is one of my favorite spots in the morning hours with a hot cup of coffee. Speaking of coffee, if kitchen amenities are important to you, the Deluxe Studio does offer a sink, toaster and microwave which are not available in the Standard room. If you are interested in waking up with the ocean, the Deluxe Studios have the option of an ocean view (in addition to other views) while the Standard rooms do not. Whichever room you choose, I hope you "see the line where the sky meets the sea" like my friend Moana did and have an unforgettable island vacation. 
    Thanks for stopping by!
