Maybe they did the opposite at SSR because of so many complaints about BWV & BCV studios sleeping five and 1 bedrooms sleeping only four (which of course led to the “sleeps five if you bring your own bedding” routine). Space constraints and wanting to push people to 1 bedrooms are both good reasons to do so.
The "sleeps 5 if you bring your own bedding" for BWV & BCV started before the studios were refurbished to include the under TV bed/camp table combo.

It does make more sense to increase the capacity of the 1 bedrooms than the studios, though, especially for SSR. (The SSR 1 Bedrooms are the last to fill and make up the lion's share of the deposits to RCI. Maybe the renovations will change that).

Just booked a Preferred Studio at SSR for June 7-10 through renting points from a dis member. For the renovated rooms is the second bed a queen or full? And is it a pull down murphy bed in the studio? I hate the regular sofa beds. We had a renovated POP room on our last trip and I loved that there were two queens in it!
From what I have been reading here, it looks like if I want to request a particular area I have to have the owner do this? When should the request be put in? Now, or closer to my trip? We are doing a no park short stay and have a 4 and 2 year old with us. It looks like the Springs would be a better option than Congress to access the boat to Disney Springs, be closer to the main hall and pool? This place just looks so massive that I want to make a good choice.
Thanks for any help

By June, Congress Park should be done and I would think there would be good progress at the Springs section in terms of renovations.

So, requesting Congress Park, if you got it, would get you a renovated room by then. If you are in the Springs, you may or may not,

Renovated rooms have the pull down Murphy beds and non renovated ones still have a sofa bed,

It doesn’t matter when you have the owner put in the request as long as it’s in at least a week ahead when they start assigning rooms. It’s only a request and not guaranteed so people putting in sooner get no priority over others,

I am going to venture to guess that having a renovated room is going to be a popular request so be prepared to maybe end up in the Springs without one.

    Ok, thanks. Do you know if the murphy bed is a queen like they did in POP?

    I stayed at SSR last weekend (Feb. 17-21, 2020). Quick note on refurb observations. High Rock Springs building rooms 3501-3836 (the building just to the north and east of the High Rock Springs bus stop) had paper on the windows. High Rock Springs building rooms 3101-3436 (the building furthest southeast) had several cherry picker lifts working on the outside of the building.
