    We are looking to stay at Wilderness Lodge beginning 8/11 (4 adults & 3 kids). I noticed 2 differnt 2 bedroom options listed under room types on the website. What is the difference between a 2 bedroom villa and 2 bedroom lock-out villa? Love the pa

    Hi Kevin,

    The Wilderness Lodge is lovely.  Booking a two-bedroom villa is a great idea for such a large group.

    I believe that you are referring to the units at the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  These villas are a part of the Disney Vacation Club, so members can book them using points.  Non-Disney Vacation Club members can also book these villas using traditional payment methods.  There is a difference between the two-bedroom lock-off villa and the two-bedroom villa (known also as a two-bedroom dedicated villa). 

    The two-bedroom lock-off villa is essentially a one-bedroom villa with a connecting door to a studio villa.  This means that the lock-off villas have two entrances.  For sleeping arrangements, there is a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, and a queen bed plus a full sleeper sofa in the second bedroom (which is the studio villa).  The lock-off unit has a full kitchen (in what would be the one-bedroom villa) as well as a kitchenette (in what would be the studio).

    The two-bedroom dedicated villa has a single entrance to the unit.  Sleeping arrangements in the two-bedroom dedicated villa are a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, and two queen beds in the second bedroom.  The dedicated villa has one kitchen and no kitchenette.

    Which type of two-bedroom villa you will choose depends on your family's needs.  I enjoy the lock-off villas because you have the option to close the adjoining door.  When we have traveled with grandparents, this means that if they want to go to sleep early, they can close the door and we can return from a later night using the secondary entrance with less chance of disturbing them.

    Whichever accommodation you choose, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful vacation.
