    Hi! LOVE this panel! We are new DVC members & are thinking about BLT for our 2014 trip. Are there pillows for the pull out couch? In the 1bedroom is a sleeper chair big enough for DS10? We have DS10/DS6 - BLT, SS & BW which is better for their age?

    Howdy Melinda!  WELCOME TO DISNEY VACATION CLUB!  So glad you are part of the family!

    You will LOVE Bay Lake Tower!  There are pillows for the pull out couch and the chair is definitely big enough for your 10 year old.  If you find you need additional pillows or linens, you can call housekeeping and they will bring you the needed items.

    Your other question is so much fun but so hard for me to answer as I know your sons would enjoy each of the resorts for different reasons.

    Do you spend more time at Magic Kingdom or Epcot/Disney's Hollywood Studios?

    If Magic Kingdom, I would suggest that you stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The resort is incredible and you will love being able to walk to Magic Kingdom! It's a very easy 8-15 minute walk depending on your pace.

    If Epcot/Disney's Hollywood Studios, you might think about Disney's BoardWalk Villas. BoardWalk is great because of its convenience to two theme parks it's and such a lively resort!  My kiddos (currently 6 and 4) love watching the performers in the evening as they entertain Guests of all ages on the BoardWalk.

    Both resorts are very popular.  If they are booked, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is an excellent choice!   Saratoga Springs is a very large resort so it typically has greater availability. The rooms are spacious and it's convenient to the dining, shopping and entertainment of Downtown Disney.  If you select Saratoga Springs and if you are there during a time that you could enjoy some fun in the sun, I would encourage you to request a Villa in The Paddock.  The pool is phenomenal!

    I am so excited for you...your first vacation as Disney Vacation Club Members!!!  Let me be one of the first to say, "Welcome Home!"  Please let me know if you have any further questions about how you can best maximize your DVC Membership!!  Have a magical day!
