We would like to stay here. However, we have four of us. My hubby and I are larger. We do NOT fit in a double bed together. We have a teenage daughter who kicks and grinds her teeth and an 8 year old snuggler/kicker - she snuggles up to you then kicks you in the gut - all while sleeping. We were thinking about getting some cheap cots. Will we be able to fit a cot or two in the room with the two double beds? We would prefer getting a king sized bed and then putting two cots, but that won't work. WDW says they won't rent a king for more than two people.

I know we could go up to AKL or WL and get the bunk beds, or what have you, but that is about 1000 or 1500 more for the week, so we are trying to avoid that.

Does anyone know about the cots? Thank you!

We stayed at Pop last September. The rooms were pretty small. We were just barely able to fit a pack n play in the corner. I don't think you would be able to fit 2 cots in the room. You might be able to squeeze one, but it would be a tight fit. What if you stayed in AsMu in the family suite, or tried to get adjoining rooms??

Also, the only rooms with King beds are the handicapped accessible rooms so keep in mind that you're not guaranteed a room with a king bed.

Thank you. Based on your responses we have pretty much ruled that out. I think we are now trying to decide between Wilderness Lodge with two Queens or the Family Suites at All Star Music. They are within about 100 of each other.

We had done the POR and POFQ with children, and were able to, but this was 6 years ago, and the kiddoes were much smaller. So we could do it. Now, we have to evaluate differently. Maybe we will cut a day out, and save some money that way.

Family Suite info:

DH and I stayed in a Family Suite at All Star Music ( a value resort) in Sept. of 2006.

We really enjoyed the Queen size bed, the kitchenette with the microwave, having a sofa and cushioned chair to sit on and relax after a day at the parks before retiring for the evening.

I thought the pullouts very comfortable.

They are designed so the back cushion and seat cushion of the pullout support the pullout. There is no metal bar to hurt the sleepers back.

Info thread--Pullouts in Family Suites at ASMU with photos of how the pullout is supported.

Here is the layout of the Family Suites:

They:

-Sleep up to 6 (plus one child under age 3 in a Pak-n-Play crib)
-Studio amenities and separate sleeping areas giving more privacy than a standard room.
-Queen bed, full-size pullout sofa, convertible ottoman & chair sleepers (4 separate sleepers)
-Private master bedroom and family room have 27 flat CRT TV and high speed Internet access.
-Kitchenette with microwave, small refrigerator (4.3 cu. ft) and coffee pot
-Two-full bathrooms


Here is my review of the Suites:

We have stayed at the POP and used a single air mattress and it worked fine - we put it in front of the door to the outside at night and stood it against the wall during the day.....I am pretty sure that you could use one at the foot of the bed also....will be a tight squeeze but I believe that it can be done especially if the 8 year old is sleeping at the foot of the bed. Have a great trip!!

Your best bet would be two rooms at Pop. You'll each have your own double bed. And it will also be your cheapest solution. There's no way your going to fit a cot or two in those rooms. They are very small.

I stayed in a King bed room and it was just a regular room.

I agree with Klofan. Try and get connecting rooms at POP.

My vote would be WL w/ the queens. It may not be a suite, but in my opinion Wl is a much nicer resort.
