It was a trip that we took in early 2019 that Disney assigned us to a “Hearing Impaired” room every time we had a resort hop (A “Resort Hop” is when you change resorts mid-vacay). This particular trip had us resort hop twice if you don’t count the 1st resort we checked into, for a total of 3 different resorts. So this review includes pictures from a “Hearing Impaired” accessible room, which differs slightly from a standard studio room. Most of the time, this just means that the bathroom is bigger or laid out differently from a regular studio villa. We were staying here as part of our DVC membership this go-around.
I just love the new pull-down beds with the Disney theming. I also love how these ones at BCV double as a table when put up-right.
Some differences to note with the Accessible room we were assigned (Room 228) is that the traditional sink area has a place for a wheelchair to roll underneath, instead of the shelf underneath. We also had a walk in shower here, instead of the tub/shower combo bath that seems to be the standard in the regular studio villa. The bathroom seems larger than the pictures of the ones in the standard studio villas.
The kitchenette was pretty standard for a Disney Studio Villa. Coffee maker, too! I really liked the counter tops they put in for their last reno at the Beach Club Villas. There are streaks of a pretty blue on a white palette. I also appreciated the starfish cabinet pulls. That was a very nice touch, Disney!
We had an insanely huge balcony here! Big enough for 10 people to hang out on, at least! Haha! We were facing poolside, for reference.
We only had one night here, but we loved our stay! We always try and schedule time for a trip around the Boardwalk and Crescent Lake when we come to Disney World, so staying right there on the lake was convenient for us. The midnight stroll we took that night around the lake was absolutely wonderful, and made for a perfectly stress free ending to a day of traveling and airports. The newly updated rooms were very pretty, and better in person than pictures. The blue paint was serene, and the carpet and faux-wood choices they made were a perfect match for the new decor.
