Mobile GF garden view vs BC 1 bed CL

Hi,
We currently have 2 weeks booked at BC (Garden view room) from 02/01/20 for my 50th Birthday, 3 of us DW, DD21 and myself...my DW booked it as a surprise but didnt anticipate the crowds (1st weekend is a 9 in most parks on touring plans and 2nd weekend there is Run Disney weekend! )
DW has looked at moving to Mid Jan (16th) and we can get a 1bed suite (CL), I assume this is a 1 bed villa?
Other option is a garden view room at GF for same price!
We are veering toward the BC as was our first choice but never stayed at either... also, does it makes sense to move dates as never been in Jan?
Many thanks in advance for any advice.

First thing to point out is that a 1 bed suite club level is not a 1 bed dvc villa.

I have not stayed at BC but I have stayed at YC and also GF. I would definitely prefer 1 bedroom CL at BC to standard at GF. As to the dates, yes the middle of the month sounds better for crowds but it is down to you whether you want to be there for your actual 50th or not.

Many thanks..
So my next question would be what the 1 bed suites at CL are? Sorry but spent the last 2 months looking up decent garden view rooms at BC and now it may all change😬

From wdwluxuryguide/exper...ch-club-resort

One-bedroom Suites at 571 square feet offer a small parlor with a cream and taupe-colored single sleeper sofa with sea blue accent pillows. Framed seashell drawings adorn the room as well as a rattan oval coffee table, and flat-screen TV atop a bureau.Off the parlor is a patio or balcony - my last stay I was in a corner suite fronting the side and main back walkway of the resort, right next to the bridge leading to Epcot. Through French doors curtained with non-private, nautical-striped sheers, enter the bedroom with its king bed, desk, queen sleeper sofa, and second TV and undercounter refrigerator within an oversized bureau. Windows are covered in neutral-colored, canvas Roman shades. A standard-size bath with double sinks and a walk-in closet are located off the parlor. Sleeps five. All are located on floors one through four which requires quite a walk and an elevator ride to the concierge lounge.

and a video tour

No brainer. The BC deal is a bigger room, massively lower crowds and food and space in the lounge. Personally Id try and change the dates but keep your original room and pocket the difference in spending money but thats a different thing completely.

Unfortunately there are no standard Garden or water views available any oyher time in January, nothing available at Yacht club either.
The issue we have with the 1 bed suite is that DD would have to sleep on a sofa bed for 2 weeks which I have been told arent the most comfortable, if it was for a shorter time wed jump at the chance of staying in the suite.
Also been offered AKL savannah view but think wed prefer the BC or GF for location.

My kids at all these ages have slept on Disney sofa beds at Beach Club or OKW and been fine. 10 and 13. 15 and 18. 17 and 20. You can ask for a mattress topper. We did this at OKW. Disney is tiring a sofa bed is going to suck you into sleep just fine!
